One thing I find interesting is if you look at the user rating (not by interest, but rating) of phones here on GSM arena; Sony is well represented (Z1 at the top) as is Nokia. Even LG and HTC have phones in the top 10.
Question is, where are the Samsung and Apple phones?
Does anyone else find it strange that the phone manufacturers with 2 of the best selling phones are not in the top 15?
zetreuf, 04 Nov 2013I suggest you go and test both and see which one suits you best. Both are good phones, similar... moreGood comment. People should do exactly that. Go to the store and test both and decide which phone best meets your needs.
Cedrice9122, 04 Nov 2013My advice for you is definitely Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
For those reasons:
-Larger Screen and... moreBetter, lighter design?
Note3 168 g
Z1 170 g
So you really think someone's going to notice 2g weight difference? LOL
Obviously you're a Note or Samsung fanboy, because you mention nothing about the advantages of the Z1 (dustproof, water resistant), 20mp Camera, Stereo FM Radio
So yes, the prospective buyer should think and line up the specs of each phone (available here on GSMarena) and not pay attention to the one sided comments of a fanboy.
sony xperia is best mobile in the world.I am using this cellphone and that is awesome and it's camera is wonderfull.
AndroidianGuy, 04 Nov 2013How if the phone hangs? how could we fix it? you cant remove the battery too..Many phones have non-removable batteries now, you think the manufacturers didn't think about the possibility?
Most manufacturers build in a hard reset by holding down the power button and one other button at the same time (volume up/down, camera, home) until it reboots. Removable or non-removable battery doesn't matter.
I haven't had any problems with my Z1 and I haven't seen a comment about the phone hanging, so why are you worried about it?
Scott, 05 Nov 2013Hi Guys,I just bought this phone by yesterday,the guy told me must to turn off my device at le... moreLOL - No, you don't need to turn off the phone. Had mine running for a week straight before I turned it off to recharge it (and no, you don't need to turn it off to recharge, I just didn't want to be disturbed).
riCK, 05 Nov 2013Guys, i bought this phone jus by its look and its specs as we understand from the web, but ser... moreInteresting comment, because I'm having none of the issues you're having (C6903).
But I'm curious what apps you can't uninstall.
Guys how many hours your battery works when you use the apps like facebook ... etc. and while i try to record the video inside the room the phone gets hot quickly and says the camera need to cool down. does you guys are also facing same problem
mattherhom, 05 Nov 2013Only two days using it. Got a scratch on the Screen. It sucks! This is very unpleasant but it is the film that comes from factory. Try to take it to a service that is authorised because without it you lose the warranty.
Ps: i have an extra scratch protector on back and front, above existing films.
Guys, i bought this phone jus by its look and its specs as we understand from the web, but seriously guys this phone is NOT the phone u r looking for, especially after paying that huge 43k
1 Speaker sound poor
2 Camera is shit (I mean it, sometimes i feel 8 MP camera does better that this one)
3 Camera lenses makes strange noise if u pat the phone on its back, as if the lenses are loose
4 the mic is not good (if u are particular with voice clarity) (people sitting next to u can hear ur partner speaking on the phone)
5 some pre installed un-necessary applications cannot be uninstalled
6 definitely sexy, but looks too large in ur hand
so many marketing people from samsung here in sony xperia xz1 forum........they're everywhere, even in other brand/product forum. makes me wonder why??? maybe xz1 is really a threat to s4.
yan16, 05 Nov 2013which phone is better xperia z1 or xperia z? confuse :(xperia zl is better than z1 and z
AndroidianGuy, 04 Nov 2013How if the phone hangs? how could we fix it? you cant remove the battery too..There is one way to restart it. remove the sim card tray :)
amit, 04 Nov 2013I want to buy a phone...help me to chose between z1 and galaxy s4it depends on what you will be using your phone even thoug I have the Z1 myself and think its brilliant I beleive that S4 is better in certain ways it depends if you like to take a lot of pictures then 20.7 MP camera on the Z1 is to go for but the S4 has a pretty decent camera aswell. With the S4 there hasnt appeared to be many issues where as with teh Z1 i had to replace it after 7 days due to a bug which would not let me get to home screen and kept on restting itself.
yan16, 05 Nov 2013which phone is better xperia z1 or xperia z? confuse :(Z1 all day long
Xperia z1 is an improvement of the xperia z and so definitely better. It features a more powerful processor of 2.2 compared to the xperia z 1.5 processor, it has an improved dust and water resistant and a fantastic 20.7 mega pixel camera.
mattherhom, 05 Nov 2013Only two days using it. Got a scratch on the Screen. It sucks! i dont think you scratched the screen, its a shatterproof protector. look closely around the edges you will get to know its protector not a screen itself. :0
