When you looking for a smartphone on stores, you all must be aware that all the displayed smartphone has maximized its brightness setting.. So it will look very bright and very nice..
I've looked to three flagship smartphone which is Xperia Z1, Note 3, LG G2.. All of them is very nice and each of them has its specialize..
In the end, i bought xperia z1 because i like the design and its material which is aluminium and glass, it makes feel like more premium..
So far, there is no problem with this phone and i'm very satisfied with its sensor camera performance.. The focus camera is very fast and excellent..
I just recently purchased the Z1 and so far it hasnít disappointed me. I chose it over the Note 3 and iPhone 5S.
It runs very smooth and fast, no lags whatsoever.
Camera is very good. Very impressed with the sharpness and the colors are very realistic.
Its screen is one of the best in my opinion, very clear and very responsive.
Battery life is great too in Stamina mode.
What I like best about the Z1 is its design, itís about time android phones should be built with a premium feel (like the z1 and htc one). Itís big but it just feels right in your hand Ė this is something iphones are lacking in my opinion. Iíve always liked the iphoneís design but then they donít feel right (too edgy for me). If the z1 was made a bit smaller however, I would have given it a perfect 10 for design. Iíve always had Galaxy phones, theyíre packed with features but then they feel cheap. I think the z1 is perfect for those who want an android phone with great performance and great design. Oh, and the z1 being waterproof is a bonus too!
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... moreNews Flash....No phone IS perfect! The best all round offer is still the Z1. Just got a LG G2 from Panamoz and sorry, it does not match up! Yes, its good but not really in the Z1's class as an all round phone. Nevertheless, the best two phone around in my humble opinion are
1. Xperia Z1
2. LG G2
3. The rest battle it out!
nickysor, 31 Oct 2013The xperia z panels has very poor viewing angles. If u have this issue maybe your are right to... moreJust watched The Smurfs 2. The colors look ok even when I viewed it on different angles. Resolution washed out a little, only a little.
Slayershine, 31 Oct 2013I have been using xperia z1 for the past one month and i have to say it is the best smartphone... morei want to know from users who really own this phone first does it overheat during browsing and games ? and how much does it take to overheat ? second does the camera have many bugs or its normal ? please reply as soon as possible am dieng to get this phone but am worried about the overheating and camera proplem just to know could i live with the heat issue or its gonna bother me
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.
