The most frustrating thing about this and any other pricey phones from sony is, it's from SONY... -_-
always buggy... Xperia Ray, S, P, Z, Ultra ( friend's) all are buggy, their update solve an issue and raise couple of others... where android phones are completely rely on regular follow up/updates... If you crave for beauty, go for sony, otherwise, leave it... just not worthy...
I was a huge fan of the Samsung Galaxy S4 up untill they started releasing an insane amount of models each with different features. When I read the review of the Xperia Z1 I instantly fell inlove with it. They give you everything you need and more in 1 model. The Thermometer and humidity meter would have been nice though.
i now the screen of sony xperia z1s screen is dust proof & water proof; if the phone fall; screen may cracks.
They should have gone with the ZL screen:bezel ratio. let the waterproof feature for another sports model. water resistant is enough.
we love z1 but expecting full walkman phone like SonyEricsson does in time past,we really love Sony walkman phone because of real audio sound.please SONY we walkman fans need music phone like w550i with z1 resemblance.we love u Sony.
Draining lot of Battery. Sony should do something regarding a better battery life.
Its a superb phone, I just love it. Thanks Sony
I like to ask people who own this phone to tell us about the camera performance, is it realy good as 20 mega pixel camera ?
Sony Z(no.1) smartphone
* The main thing which makes sony device to luk stunning frm the crowd is the UI - Timescape(sony) and Android os gives a Fluidic feel.
* And a gud feature is that the 3.5mm jack is open n doesnt hav any cover so there is no need of opening frequently for hearin music since it is open it doesnt affect when it is underwater
Is it comming size in 4inch same specification ? I am waiting for 4 inch size.
We need headphone port and charger port should be open not covered. It's annoying to us when we use charging and using headphone. Please step a decision for it and implement it your next smartphone. We want thin like SONY XPERIA Z ULTRA.
TeamAndy, 26 Sep 2013I was using the Xperia ARC over the Xperia T, purely down to battery. Now i have the Xperia Z1... morecan I ask how many "SCREEN ON" hours you can get after using the phone from 100% battery to 10% battery level??
What matters to me is not the total usage time.. I want to know the total SCREEN ON TIME since that signifies the total number of hours that you actually use the phone
anonym, 26 Sep 2013camera it's not so good. better on iphone5 .. compare them and u will seecheck the iphone 5 sensor n see what company made it... including galaxy s4... most smartphone cameras are Sony branded
John Mirar, 26 Sep 2013There was a time when this Company was the Best | With the experience that i've had with The S... moreJust stop! Sony Ericsson has not existed for over a year! More importantly, if you send a product back to the manufacturer by recorded delivery/registered post, to make sure they get it, and they lose it they are legally obliged to replace it! Basic law so stop trolling!
Sorry but that rant wasn't meant for you I only realised after the the post I was on another thread talking about the same issue and yes i know when sony phones hit 15% they are in the red I have 4 Sony devices but sorry my friend that rant wasn't for you.
Martin, 26 Sep 2013Beware, I got the phone yesterday and they say it is scratch proof, let me tell you that this ... moreactually the Z1 and all xperia phones have a shatterproof sheet on the screen aka screen protector, and that is why it scratches easily. you can always remove the shatterproof sheet, but doing so will also take the Sony logo on the front of it with it, since its printed on the screen protector.
i plan on removing mine when i buy it and purchases an Oleophobic spray. also sony rumors are that sony uses a dragontail for the front and a gorilla glass for the back.
