I've got mine for 3 years now.
Still feels great.
I used to swap mobile phones every year (sometimes in less than a year). I thought about buying a new one and retire this one, but i always stumble on the same question: Why should i ? The looks? Performance? Nope.
This one is still excellent after 3 years.
I'll probably buy another Sony Xperia Z.
i'm using z1 butthe primary/back camera isn't clear depite it's mgapixel

VineetReddy, 23 Jan 2016REASON TO BUY XPERIA Z1 I live in India and have been using XPERIA Z1 since its launch. It ha... moreIts really great!Sony phones are always pricy,even after long period.But they are so smooth and have no lags,premium build and good camera,music player,etc.
REASON TO BUY XPERIA Z1
I live in India and have been using XPERIA Z1 since its launch. It has been more than 2yrs but still my phone runs without lagging or switching off by itself. It still gives nearly 2day battery life. There are many more plus points. But this whole thing is my experience.
NOW THE MAIN THING
Back in October-November 2015 which was a short while after SONY announced discontinuation of Z1 the phones sales went up like crazy. It was festive season in India and at this time we buy or gift things. At this time all over India nearly all things especially electronics go under huge discounts. That was when Z1 sales went high it went so high that it set a new record with 5.8million sales in 2-3 weeks and 6.5million in month in India for highest selling phone in a month in discontinued segment. But even that is less crazy compared to what happened in that sales. As I said that in that period all electronics go under huge discount, but this was not the case with Z1. Its price quoted by SONY India was ₹17,799 and guess the phone was selling at ₹24,000 and went up to ₹32,000. This was the only phone to have the price at nearly 200% of its original price and still get sold off completely. Even at very high price of ₹32,000 it had 0.6million sales. At ₹28,000 to ₹32,000 range there were many other phones with better specs but still peoples choice was Z1. Now it is out of stock and to be nowhere found in India(Indian version not imported one).
NOW YOU THINK WHY WOULD 5.8MILLION PEOPLE GO FOR IT WITH EVEN THAT HIGH PRICE

i have 4 questions here.
may i have an opinion should i buy this xperia z1 since now alm... moreThat is not true. Yes, we agree XPERIA Z1 is a discontinued model by SONY, but the products that the manufactured even which are sold long after their discontinuation(if sold by authorized dealer or high rated retailer) it will always have 1year manufacturer warranty.
Even if you go for a phone with similar specs or even higher specs the thing that matters is the quality in which Z1 is unmatched. Even though Z2 and Z3 have better specs they fall behind in toughness.
