One of the best things in Sone Xperia Z and Sony Xperia Z1 is their heaviness (Just like the feeling of an iPhone 5)... Unlike Samsung... It feels like you are using a plastic device or a toy... Heaviness in cellphones is a very good thing.... GOOD JOB SONY ;)
I have recently bought this phone and with it converted to Android from iOS and first of all have to say that there is no looking back!
First things you notice is that this phone is FAST, it is noticeably faster than the S4 and the HTC One and as you will know they are not slow phones.
The next thing is the screen, simply stunning, the 441dpi is incredible. I haven't been 'wowed' as much since seeing a 4K screen at a demo. It is large though so might be a consideration for those without pianist hands like myself, especially as you will want to put a case on this beautifully crafted thing as well.
Then we move onto the camera, as people have mentioned the default automatic setting is not so great and I don't know why it's a default but once you touch to change it to manual (and without going into detail) it's quite simply the best camera I have ever used on a phone (and I have used a lot!).
I also do a lot of water sports including kayaking so having a phone that is waterproof is a great feature for me and given that I would have bought this phone due to the specs and performance alone it feels like an added bonus!

AnonD-115431, 29 Sep 2013Samsung is sponsoring Chelsea FC $90 million dollars (US) a year. And u think they will waste... morewhat innovations? it's sony who made all the innovations think of the camera lenses from their award winning G lens now made in a compact design fitted in a smartphone? think of that... the water & dust resistant, the air gestures, camera lenses from apple, samsung, lg, HTC all coming from sony. Who made first the 13mp camera it was sony. That's why xperia price is much lower than all other phones even the specs was totally impressive and outstanding.
It's better then Samsung Galaxy & LG Optimus.20.7MP is very high quality and 1080p video have very high resolution.I think I will buy it for my new phone.
And I want to ask a question:Why so many people use Samsung?Sony also is a good brand of smartphone
I like sony, because they are sunny shining bright.....slim is one of kind sony improved very well, i like slim, i don't like fat. Anyone doubted sony, please compare the display...you will find the answer. Sony can only beaten by Apple.
I compare this side by side to my z ultra, the best word i can describe this is GORGEOUS! To bad i have z ultra already >.>
AnonD-121165, 30 Sep 2013my suggestion is leave the page if u are a lg fanOh, you. I saw your posts in Samsung phones section. You claim they are the worst. I bet Samsung atleast provides Software enhancements. What about sony, it's only for swimmers. I'm not a Sammy fan though.
AnonD-115431, 30 Sep 2013Samsung and apple offer quantity AND quality! Samsung has quality? From low end to high end phones from samsung, one word defines them. FRAGILE!

[deleted post]ur rong da sales of galaxy was due to google ,tool :-P ...
z1.most beautiful among all android smartphones,i'm not gonna buy floody poor performance ugly plastic.
One of my friend bough Xperia Z1 from a local store in Hyderabad(India) for INR 38,990. I don't know why people like this phone
It looks like a thin soap box, ugly design.
Screen resolution is pathetic. (LG G2, even Lumia 925 are better than this)
Camera is OK.
No noticable software enhancements.
Huge Battery drain (May the problem only exists in the handset which my friend is using. We tested using watching movies and internet, hardly it came for 3 hours)
Lot of hanging while switching applications (May be due to Android??)
Speaker output is worse
My suggestion is better go with LG G2(if you are android fan), Lumia 625/1020 if you are a windows fan.
Looking at the IP rating...
Isn't it actually dust resistant and water proof and not the other way around, as is written now?
AnonD-78209, 30 Sep 2013hahah samsung innovation is worst i love sony premium design and quality not like samsung ... moreHahahhaha samsung had no innovation? U see the 3G and 4G on ur phone?
