HELP PLEASE .. I didnt receive the z1 update yet.. Does it mean that i have a problem with my phone or i need to wait more?
I have been using the Z for the past 6 months and boy i love it! In the initial days of the use, it used to get heated up, i never liked much the 13 MP camera and all, but sony had given a series of firmware and software updates to Z and now i love this piece of beauty. Z1 owners who face troubles with camera or any other firmware issues, i say dont worry.. Just wait.. Sony will definitely give out updates and u will not regret having Z1.
Jamie, 21 Oct 2013I noticed that Sony still uses TFT displays while others are using IPS displays or LCD display... moreEither IPS-LCD, AMOLED, S-LCD 3 and etc are all actually part of TFT display, or I should say they all uses TFT technology on the display. Both LCD and OLED have their own strength and weaknesses like LCD have a better outdoor visibility but rather poor viewing angle (compare to OLED), OLED have a very good viewing angle + potential to be flexible but have poor lifespan (~5yrs vs LCD 10+yrs) and colour balance issue (which caused oversaturate issue). Though OLED is a newer technology and the future trend, but that doesn't mean LCD or any TFT is cheap or outdated display technology. Sony smartphone display is rather poor compare to its rival is not because of the TFT technology, but efforts. But Sony has improved a lot on their display on recent smartphone especially the Z Ultra.
No proper video playback decoders (XviD, DivX) out of the box. what did they mean? Im confuse.

Old news, give us the Mini, now.
Mini is going to be much better than this, especially the display. And why is that? Look at Z Ultra, marvelous display with very good viewing angles, and why doesnt the Z1 have the same? Its due to pixel density, its very difficult to manufacture IPS displays on so high pixel density due to the fact that In-Plane Switching aka IPS, as the name implies, uses two electrodes in the same plane, that is BOTH ELECTRODES ARE ON THE SAME SIDE of the liquid crystal layer, an it is this that gives IPS its wide viewing angles. However, on high density displays this is very tricky, LG also met limitations, and therefor had to settle for 5.5 inch on their first FHD phone, the G Pro. Lg is currently the worlds biggest manufacturer of LCD for mobile, and even they could not make 440 PPI IPS displays, in fact Sharp were the only one who could. While LG chose to keep the IPS and rather go for bigger display with lower density Sony chose to not use IPS at all and rather stay at 5 inch FHD.
The Z1 Mini will fall into the same category as Z Ultra, the density is low enough to allow for IPS with their current manufacturing line, and thats how we know Z1 Mini will utilize IPS.
I noticed that Sony still uses TFT displays while others are using IPS displays or LCD displays.
But wouldn't IPS + BRAVIA ENGINE 2 give better graphics?? Coz IPS produces better picture than TFT.
Medicore phone . Using for past 15 days and my screen developed a crack without even dropping the phone. Totally unsatisfied with sony ..
AnonD-114814, 20 Oct 2013bad tft display,spikerfon and sound is lowNever known any other phone, apart from the Xperia Z, attract so many blatant liars, haters and trolls! Keep it up trolls!!
Today I took pictures underwater in pool. the phone wophone continued working but no longer read the Sd memory. it worked well until.water got in the micro Sd slot in less than 5min. Dried it out and everything Rocks again. Can say this z1 is waterproof if the I was to wrap some waterproof tape around the sides. downsides are the wifi signal strength is not as good as my IPhon. 4s. But still works well enough. Other downside is that taking pictures does not produce 20mp quality. I have settings on manual, but so far picture. Appear to pixilate sooner than IPHONE.
