Android takes up the rest of the memory. that's what I hate about android it takes a lot of your ram. The memory being low is becoz it's similar to when u buy a pen drive u don't get exactly 2gb even if it says so coz the rest of the memory is used in case your files get deleted for restoring purposes that space is used
bad, 02 Nov 2013i buy the z1..can i ask why my memory only 11gb and ram 1.6gb when the spec said 16gb and 2gb ... moreyou only have 11gb free space because of the aps and OS, and only 1.6GB ram available because everytime you start and use the phone you have application in the ram memory, just like a PC

My bad. :D maybe I was just so worried abt the issues concerning the units as I bought it online. And I used to use the orange theme, maybe that's the reason that gives me somewhat yellowish tint. Somekinda deceived. Haha. And the serial # of my phone is BH906**** which has no yellowish hue issue as per some websites.
bad, 02 Nov 2013i buy the z1..can i ask why my memory only 11gb and ram 1.6gb when the spec said 16gb and 2gb ... moreYour phone is ok. It has 16 GB but 5 gb are used by OS. All phones have these issue of kinda false advertising.
About those 2 Gb of ram ....same story. Part of them are used by graphics.
But it os normal. You can always buy an micro sd card to expand the storage. By the way 16 GB are not really 16 GB more like 16.000 MB which is less than 16 GB:-)
nomanbangladesh, 02 Nov 2013I heard that xperia has no video call option(without any soft)....is it true? Yes. Or i couldn't find mine:-) i have nevere ever used video calling. Only through skype or tango.

I think that you can check if it is trilluminos display by looking at your screen when is off in direct light and you should be able to see some small diamonds like spots (maybe those are quantum dots). I can see mines but just in some angles.
Sorry for your yellowish tint. Maybe can be fixed by an sw update. I hope my purple tint will be solved too.
Very happy with z1. Best choice for me.

Brpi, 01 Nov 2013Hi just want to know if anyone (Filipino) here bought xperia z1 from hotgadgets? is the device good?No idea about hotgadget, I bought my xz1 from other sulit supplier, so far, no problem. Performance is superb, battery life is good and far better than xz, no yellow tint screen, super fast processor.....I'm fully satisfied with this smartphone.
Wow. Have you guys tried the camera small app in your Z1? It has the option to downgrade the camera resolution from 20mp to 18mp then next is the 8mp. It's available in the Play Store. :)
kamaltaring, 01 Nov 2013Yep, it gets hot sometimes but when it does i just put submerge it into water to cool it off i... moreYou should avoid doing that cause sticking hot glass into cold water can make it cracked, just a warning :D
I think mine is suffering from the yellow tint of the screen. I guess it's one of the first batch of the unit. :(
I really love this phone but the price is 700$-750$ and my range is 300$-350$ that's why getting a Nexus 5. It's worth every penny it'll be shipped on Tuesday :-D excited
i have z1 & g2
both great phones
z1 losses in battery life.
they are tie in camera quality.
I bought this one. Really cool to hang with. It have some disadvantages that I noticed while using. 1- No 3g video call(shocked when found out really an embarrassment), 2 - heats frequently, 3 - Battery lasts only a day. 4- I don't like basic email app. Because it stores only 25 mails. This is all I have seen for past 15 days.
