That is an eu... moreI've got a z1 (sorry had 2 because 1st one was basically broken and was unliveable with) and it's the 2nd worst android phone I've had 1st being Sony Ericsson Xperia play. It's ui is awful, no features at all, its screen isn't great, camera isnt great, battery is awful, connectivity to 2g, 3g and 4g is awful, it's body is too big for screen size, having an aluminium body with glass is stupid, it overheats all the timr it isn't scratch, dust not shatter proof seeming mine has a chip in the screen from nothing the only conciliation I can give this phone is it runs very smooth expect when it crashes running little things and then not being able to do anything for 10 mins (same problem with both Z1's I've had) the speaker is awful, starts crackling at half volume and found out half of it is for looks (middle to left side of speaker). The best phones you can get are Samsung Gs4 and note 3, used both (my gf has Gs4 and her dad note 3) and I've not seen a flaw yet. I've had 2 Gs3's, standard and lte and they both out perform the z1 by a mile, really disappointed with Sony because this phone looked promising.
its too big in size, i hate apple phones but apple mobile size is just best one.... mobile is till mobile u can put in your pocket if u need other bag for mobile its means its not a mobile anymore... so make a size for pocket not for a special bag... thanx...
First of all, I'm very happy that Sony is really setting up in the smartphone world. Z1 ia definitely a great phone, the best I had actually. But should Z1s has an IPS as per the rumor mill, I guess that's a real let down for Sony for not having that in Z1 considering it is their current flagship. Form factor wise Z1 is better but if the IPS for Z1s is true then Z1s will have the upper hand. This just makes me feel a bit I don't know, should I say disappointed or let down for the Z1. Hope you got what I wanted to say. Of course I didn't want to downgrade as I was after bigger screen and now I'm happy that I finally got it. I guess nobody's perfect but should it be true I think Sony should have listened to their customers before they released their 2013 line up. Just my thoughts.
Wooow !!! I'v neva used a smart and unique fone like xperia Z1...I was using iphone 4s but I later on felt discourage and go for xperia Z1

That is an eu... moreI would never call Iphone or any phone pretty based on the look but base on geometry(optimized dimensions) and ergonomics. Iphone looks like a green board eraser for me. With its Length-to-Width ratio of 123.8/58.6=2.11 which is similar to HTC One(another Huge Bezel lover) at 2.00, this more than the average I have computed with several smartphones at 1.957- a better Length-to-Width proportion closr to the Golden Ratio, Iphone5/5S and HTC One, geometrically looks ugly as the phone looks much longer relative to screen size- it's out of proportion...
ermond12, 14 Nov 2013New update? What's the version? It's not the Album app update I reckon yeah?I can't tell exactly. The battery is better. Moderate usage take it about 2 days which is very good for me.
Have a nice day.
I own the Z Ultra and the screen is absolutely amazing. Described a "Capacitive". I have the Z1 as well but the screen is not as good and described as "TFT Capacitive". Why the difference because the Ultra is amazing at all angle? Will Sony make the Z1 in "Capacitive ever?
AnonD-111968, 14 Nov 2013Ok, then it's good that Sony is doing their best. Sony just needs to increase a bit the curvat... moreNot gonna happen as according to Steve Jobs himself, Apple was inspired by Sony. That is an euphemism for Apple copying Sony. As for bezels, if that is your only criticism, I think most can live with that, after all the prettiest phone, the iPhone has bigger bezels relative to its size. Bottom line the Z1 and G2 are the best phones currently available and the Z1 shades it for its all round qualities.
waiting for mini version a.k.a Z1s. Sony is the best...Z1s will definitely becoming my cameraphone. small (handy), powerful, waterproof, cameracentric. thats all what smart cameraphone needed. and Sony the only made it.
AnonD-29966, 14 Nov 2013Dont try Bought Saturday, tried is water Tuesday, phone is done..Sony will stop chatting with you. Misleading, cost me $800..
AnonD-81283, 14 Nov 2013Does anyone try in the water?any problem about it?cos I just get my xperia z1 yesterday and I ... moreI tried it and it works find. Dropped it in a bucket of water for ~10 minutes and also in the shower.
Slayer, 14 Nov 2013Not true. The battery life of both are very good, especially after the recent update from Sony... moreOk, then it's good that Sony is doing their best. Sony just needs to increase a bit the curvature of the corners, but maybe Apple may chase them for copying a "genius" idea of a rectangle with rounded corners, when it must have been discovered thousands of yrs ago. So they stick to angular corners and HUGD bezels.
AnonD-111968, 14 Nov 2013Sony have the weakest battery life in all smartpones, except the ZR. Z1 and G2 both have 3000m... moreNot true. The battery life of both are very good, especially after the recent update from Sony. The battery life of the Xperia Z1 is truly awesome.
IPhone 2 user , 14 Nov 2013It doesn't have gorilla glass and TFT screen is outdated. I'd suggest HTC One Max or iphone 5s... moreI own both and on balance, the Z1 shades it. That is my opinion having used both phones for a period of time. Either way, you can't lose.
