The Z1's battery lasts me over 2 days in stamina mode and a full 2 days even without it. Stop hating on Sony and go post on the LG G2 blog. You do realise the Z1 has 3,000 mAh battery as well!

But I can wait for Z2 or Z3 maybe, until Sony improves the battery life of their smartphones significantly, the 3000 mah for the 6.4" Z Ultra is an insult to the customers.
I just sold my z due to battery performance , but absolutely loved it , it was flawless and was really light weight and beautiful .
I Handled z1 in store it felt nice but carries weight too , though that doesn't matter , battery life matters me most.
After z I m having iPhone 5 though it's great in performance n feel , I need a sturdy device like z but good in battery life and a 5 inch screen too.
So my question is should I go for z1 or wait for it's next upgrade.
I m confused now in three devices z1 , iPhone 5 and want to just try what the BB z 10 is all about until the Next z may be z3
Not only z1 every device out there need to learn from G2. Believe it or not it's the best innovative device ever made in history. Everything is wonderful in g2. G2 - learn from you
I like Sony Xperias a lot due to dust/water proofing, I waited for Xperia ZR but sadly they never release it here in SG. My comments below is not to criticize Sony but as a customer/user I'm just giving my suggestion. Who wouldn't love to have a longer on-screen battery life and who wouldn't love to have an ergonomic phone?. Was actually deciding between G2 and Z1 but I go for the G2 since it came first here, but after a month I saw the Z1 and thought that I should have waited, but due to an average battery performance, I thought of waiting for Z2, Z3 maybe until Sony manages to improve the battery life. I always happy how Sony cared for their customers by weatherproofing their devices.
I just bought xperia z1 a day ago, surprisingly my z1 is overheating even only for Web browseringredients and camera, the the battery life so bad. Sony...please fix this problem
Why u people are crazy about Xperia Z1....? Why dont you Choose Lg G2 or Note-3...? (similar price range)..my friend had bought Z1 two weeks ago, i had used it for 2 days, I have expected a lot from this mobile range of 42,900/- but i didnt reached my expectations after using it, camera shots in indoor is not good (blurred) but in out door ok (not awesome).. instead of buying Z1 i suggested u to go for NOTE-3 ....

2 Things that I wanted Sony to improve. 1. BATTERY-Z1 with 3000 mah is below average in terms of web browsing, and video playback, it is way behind the LG G2 with the same battery size but a slightly bigger screen- Sony should explore some battery saving techniques rather than implement the Stamina mode which encourages their users to turn off their Z1 to increase the battery life. 2. TOO much bezels, I believe Sony have a way to trim those, excessively big BEZELS-recommended also for Nokia and HTC, Apple iphones to trim their bezels - learn from LG G2, this reduces the dimensions of Z1 and Sony's design language of having a less curvy corners is BAD, it's not ergonomic as it digs painfully into your palm, other than these I always love Sony's water/dust proofing.

Buy the s4, iphone5 (not s), Z1 or Z, htc one, note 3, and for the others i suggest 2 mid-range phones for backup if all your others are damaged and some 2012 like the s3 or one x+ And but tablets like the nexus 10 with the rest of the money...

If Sony could only trim the bezels to make Z1 smaller and comfortable to use and make power saving techniques similar to G2 or Note 3, then it should have been my first choice.
