I have been using this phone for a week now. I had an s3 prior to this, S3 was suppose to be a flagship phone but sucked big time, i had to replace the MB of the phone twice once because I updated to 4.1 JB by OTA update released by samsung DUH!!! if that spoils the MB then y did they even release it, After that it just started hanging every now n then. well thats abt samsung.
Now coming to sony xperia z1,
First of all it is just too good to be real.
It gives a premium feel when u hold it!
the display is really good but the colors look a lil washed out when viewed even at a slightly different angle sad but true.
The interface is just flawless, superfast n amazing no downside on that.
snapdragon 800 makes it one of the fastest phones available in the market. it doesn't make a slightest bit of difference even if u install tons of apps!!!
I was expecting the camera to be really good cos of the number 20.7 MP but somewhere it is really disappointing. The camera hardware really has the potential but the software for handling the camera is pulling the performance down probably in the future updates this might be corrected n can bring out the true potential of the camera.
The major advantage of having this phone is it is water n dust proof which atleast makes my life easier now i no longer have to worry abt my phone when it rains or of accidental water spills.
Over all at present if you are looking for a phone then this should be the right choice.
Other phone that you should look forward for is LG G2 n note 3.
But from my personal exp i would say not to get a samsung phone cos they just dont respect their customers n they just make phones which will give problems from the very next day you buy it.
LG not sure of their products but G2 was really good when i checked it out when i went to buy xperia but my choice was xperia cos of its water n dustproof feature which is really really necessary for me.
venki, 05 Oct 2013Hi friends.....I am using 2 phones, one is Sony xperia z1, its getting very problems of this ... morecan't believe you have xz1, went to htc one dual sim and read about their comments, got so many problem and the sales less than a million unit. i hope you'll sell your xz1 at bargain price and everybody gonna buy that.
Good phone but the switch key could be more comfortable to use. Its a bit difficult to press. And the screen performance is at least 3 times worse than the S4. I really wish Sony to be the best..
This is good looking phone but it is too big. Look at how samsung and lg fit their 5" and 5.2" screen into their premium phone. Sony still has a lot to learn. Htc design better than them and have better screen considering they dont make lcd screen like sony.
Hi friends.....I am using 2 phones, one is Sony xperia z1, its getting very problems of this mobile,I hate z1,,,,
I am using HTC one dual its very attractive phone I love HTC one
replying to the user above asking about the noise when taking photo, why don't you just call the Sony helpline in your country, instead of keep spamming repetitive questions?
sony decide to remove the hardware buttons instead using on screen controls. these extra bezels compensate the huge battery that the XZ1 have so its more on design considerations. if you think to accommodate more screen area, maybe you will be facing aspect ratio issues. i think everything on this phone is in order and within the parameters in its field of structural engineering....
junay, 04 Oct 2013Sony is not serious with its smartphone cameras. LG G2's camera is way better than Z1.I think u never see the XZ1 i already try the camera
Its far better thn anysmartphone camera
