A few charges and update to the latest firmware should resolve any battery issues you might have.I also want to add that Xperia z1 and Htc one are the only phones wich give you a real premium feel but the Z1 has a lot better specs and ip58 on top and glass + metal beats metal in my opinion it makes z1 trully special and the battery life is huge compared to 95% of smartphones.
bad battery life, 3000mah battery nt affordable to 5 inch in this phone, unfortunately sony experiaz1 bad in battery life...otherwise its nt bad..

I honestly didn't expect to own a xperia z1 but after 3 failed atempts with htc one, i have wanted to go with lg g2 when i realised that except very good hw the sw is nowhere near.
It ressembles to much with sgs 4. Z1 looks extraordinary, and it is different. It is heavier than other flagship phones but in hand you won't feel that much.
I like the hw which is top notch, on par with g2 or note 3, but is so good looking, good reception and very simple and clean UI.
I can only recommend you this phone if you like something very premium, something that makes you distinctive than others. I won't say that G2 , sgs 4, note 4 are bad but...

I don't want to scratch my beautyful phone:-)
After removing scratch protector are there any traces of glue?
Thank you very much.
Have a nice day or evening ( here in Romania is evening).

The Z1 does not dig into your palms and is easier to hold and use by comparison with the Z. Basically, you are a troll and not worth responding to anymore. Liars and trolls, please leave this blog. No interest in your lies and paid TROLL ways...GTFO!

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 ....
