T WAR, 31 Oct 2013I own one and have used it for a month. Its a good phone but: 1. The built-in screen protector... moreI agree with 1,2,3 but 4 i don't. They aren't that bad. You can tilt the phone. Sure not as much as an sgs 4 or htc one or lg g2 but you can see what's on the screen and in day 2 day usage you are not disturbed by this issue.
However, scracthing so easy is not ok. A phone has to endure and last not to wear off so quickly. I totally agree with you. Maybe they will fix it somehow in the future...
zedsmart, 31 Oct 2013any body whos making negative comments on this phone.... surely dont own it....I own one and have used it for a month. Its a good phone but: 1. The built-in screen protector scratches amazingly easily, its a joke for a phone this expensive 2. The Sound quality when you do not use the headset is fairly shit. (Water proofing I guess) 3. The camera with the auto mode is not very special. 4. The viewing angle of the screen is terrible. On the other hand its amazingly quick, the screen when viewed directly is good and I like the actual design of the devices. Also its the best water proof phone. I like it, buts it's a 4/5 phone. Good but not perfect. I guess if you are coming from a Galaxy S or something you will be amazed.
any body whos making negative comments on this phone.... surely dont own it....
srilankan dude, 30 Oct 2013does z1 has the lagging prb after using for sometime...... cz as i knw alot of earlier sony pr... moreI've been using it for two weeks and tried almost everything I can do with it, but even slightl, I didn't have a problem with lagging. Trust me, you won't find any lag with its snapdragon 800.
I have been using xperia z1 for the past one month and i have to say it is the best smartphone I have used so far. Granted it is a bit big for holding in a single hand but the performance of the mobile is far better than anything i have ever seen.....
It is really damn fast, and works ever so smoothly. But it does get heated up and the camera wont work if its too hot. The battery life in stamina mode is really amazing. The camera does give u good quality pictures as they say but may not be as good as lumia 1020.
And I really dont know why people rant about the viewing angle of the phone. Its not as if i am going to look into my mobile sideways or some weird angle. As far as I can see it just fine, the display is really good and crystal clear. And the video performance is really good, smooth and no stutters.
I love this phone and its worth every penny i spend on it
ermond12, 31 Oct 2013Yeah I might try that but hopefully the screen isn't defective or something. Been thinking tha... moreThe xperia z panels has very poor viewing angles. If u have this issue maybe your are right to worry. How is the movie The Snurfs looking on your device? Mine has very intense colors ( with x reality on) and pictures look ok too.
The trilluminos screen isn't the best of lcd screen. It is good, but there is a slight wash out or poorer viewing angles than lets say Htc One.
Visibilty in sunlight should be better than xperia z panels. I have found some discussion about z1 screen on anand tech site ( z1 screen roullete or something like this).
Hope you can find out if it the good screen or not.
ermond12, 30 Oct 2013I've got mine today and black colour as there's no white available. Can I use regular SIM in Z1?Xperia Z1 has micro-sim slot which is the common type nowdays.
srilankan dude, 30 Oct 2013wat abt the battery life? thankuu :)It does infact already state battery life.
I took mine back for a refund today. Worked perfectly for a week then stopped finding reception. Each time I rebooted it got stuck in a boot loop and took up to two hours to turn on! I reset and wiped the entire phone incase it was a dodgy app but the problem remained.. A shame because it was a great phone for the first week!
ABC, 30 Oct 2013anyone using this pls tell whether it is worth buying or not. so many confusing comments about... moreThe dynamics of this arena here is a very good thing to have, so don't trouble your head with uncertainties and possibilities. Once you've made the decision, go for it! don't fall for any self defeating influences.
But if you are expecting a triple sim functionality smart phone then we are in the same league my friend. Have a nice phone day you all!
Anyone know if the z1's are made in china? Can't find anywhere that states where they're made. Thanks!
Finally, the phone i've been waiting for has released to my country.. I've bought it and so far there is no problem with the screen or camera.. I'm very satisfied by its performance.. Triluminos display is really nice..
nickysor, 30 Oct 2013Try to compare it with other z1. Maybe the one in the store. Best of luck!Yeah I might try that but hopefully the screen isn't defective or something. Been thinking that I've gotten the one with the Z screen panel. That's an ouch if it's true.
Can someone please get rid of all the trolls from Sony's blog/page! Why are these people trolling the Sony page? Are you guys so worried about Sony's rise? Do you feel threatened? Is your brand really that poor that all you can is bash and troll? Please go get a life or at least try!
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2013Can anybody tell me about the display of z1 ?Is close/similar with Htc One but the viewing angles are lower. It is good. Very accurate in my opinion so go for it. As almost all OEMs they have several types of panels but mine is ok. I like very much. I even got used with its size and weight.
Have the phone for a coupke of hours now.I don't knowif there's something wrong with the screen but my acro S' screen has better resolution. I mean like when I use the Experience wallpaper, on my acro S it has deeper blacks while on my Z1 it has more on greyish tone. More like the colors on my acro S were punchier than Z1. Don't get me wrong, Z1 really is a great phone and I'm very happy about it but the screen just bothers me a bit. Should I have it replaced or what.
