Hi... I am using Xperia Z1 (C6903) since 5 days and i am glad to tell that i am very happy with the phone performance. 1.Phone is very well designed, and it looks great in hands. that glassy surface, metallic frame makes phone look beautiful. for design i will give marks 9/10
2.User Interface : is very friendly, Sony's custom UI is very easy to use. there is no lagging in user interface at all. marks : 9/10
3.Sound : Sound quality is great in this phone specially when we listen in headphones. its much better than Xperia Z. but in external speakers its not that great. marks: 9/10
4.Battery : in this phone we have got 3000mah battery. i charged battery to 100% on the very first day i bought and it lasted for me 1 and half day.. during this one and half day i played some 3D games, played HD videos, listened some songs, and talked to my friends for some time.. for battery performance i can give 8.5/10
5.Camera : this phone is mainly selling bcoz of its 20.7mp camera. i took some photos in outdoors and they were awesome with contrast, natural color and sharpness. when it comes to indoor, its not that great.. lot of noise in the pictures. but u can find lot of setting which can help to improve indoor shootings in manual mode.for camera i am giving marks 8.5/10
Display : display is awesome. photos and videos looks much sharper and clear.. for display i can give marks 9/10.
I was expecting much more from this phone, bcoz its very costly device. in the end i can say that there is no prefect phone and i am very proud own Sony Xperia Z1. overall for device i will give 9/10 marks.
For those who are facing over heat and battery issues, here is the solution which worked for me.. USe the phone fully and discharge it completely till 10% charge left, then night while sleeping put it for charge and charge full night at least for 6 hours... next day u can notice the changes.. this trick worked for me...

SnobZ, 07 Oct 2013GuysI was wondering if z1 is far more better than note 3??? Word of advice before buying it...... moreI tested Galaxy Note 3 yesterday in a store, spent a long time there because this very pretty young saleslady was so talkative. Nice demo indeed.
Anyway, the display was clearer than expected, and it looked much better than Note 2 display, but unfortunately also Note 3 has this strong blue tint when viewed from even a small angle, so if you care about color reproduction, especially the white (arguably the most important color on any display) then Note 3 has very poor viewing angles, webpages turn blue by the slightest tilt.
And then the region lock of Note 3, thats a serious limitation, if you are buying in Europe then Note 3 is absolutely a no-go, stay away.
XPERIA S USERS, 07 Oct 2013U troll.just shut and get from here
This just 4 SONY fan who love Sony u cheap troll plasti... moreThere are different ways of making LCD displays, that apply to Triluminous as well. AA website had a display side by side comparison with Z Ultra and Z1, both are Triluminous, they were equal from the front but Z Ultra had superior viewing angles. The reason is simple, Z Ultra uses In-Plane Switching, aka IPS, and Z1 does not.
Triluminous is different from and superior to regular LCDs in some ways, but its still LCD, thats why IPS or not IPS makes a difference still. AMOLED on the other hand does not use LCD technology at all, and is unaffected, by they still use TFT technology, which is something very different from IPS, and thats what most people here dont understand, they see TFT and think its so bad, they se IPS and think its great, but the two things are unrelated, much like the gearbox and the wheels on a car are two very different things.
no need bro. we, xperia user are given with Stamina Mode fresh from sony. i think this is more powerful than juice defender in term of battery saving and unctionality. anyway, thanks for suggesting.

But what happens if you drop the phone in the sand? The headset plug is open, in the water SONY says have no problems, but if you get sand, it will have a problem?
Waterproof is good for security. Not to use all the time in the water. IF you open one of the little protection coover You will lost the smartphone. Need to be really carefull with that. It's the same you use the smartphone inside a plastic case.
