AnonD-190504, 25 Sep 2013I Got it 2 days ago and it's absolutlly amazing bild quality, fast, good looking, It;s a SONY ... moreBeware, I got the phone yesterday and they say it is scratch proof, let me tell you that this is NOT the case.
I strongly recommend you buy yourself a case and a protective film as both the back and the front part of the phone scratch very easily...
VERY DISAPPOINTING for a SGD 1,000 phone...

Next time read carefully and try to understand and what hurts most is that there was a chart underneath with the battery usage over the alotted time frame so check again.
Anyone know if this still heats up like a microwave ove.. I mean the Z especially when you're playing graphic-heavy games? The most recent update for the Z brought back that experience.
sonylover, 26 Sep 2013i hope Sony would do another sexy phone like a SONY XPERIA ARC S 2 soon... :)Already done with Xperia T, TX. Those were the flagships with the Arc design, after that Sony moved the Arc design to lower midrange. They cant go back now and use this lower midrange design for any high end phone.

I Got it 2 days ago and it's absolutlly amazing build quality, very fast, good looking, waterproof! It's a SONY product MADE IN JAPAN :)
AnonD-59047, 25 Sep 2013You sure the S4 Has better battery life? On many other sites the Z1 beats the S4 in video play... moreZ1 lasted 12hours 34 minutes to be exact, i think its an impressive result. However, it depends a lot on firmware, as one can see Engadget only got 5h34m out of Xperia Z, but with newer firmware i can get around 9 hours out of the Z using MX Player.
Quote from engadget review,
"The improvement in battery life is even greater. On a day of light to moderate usage, including some camera work, the Xperia Z1 lasted for a long day, a night and five hours of the next day before hitting the red -- at which point it still had enough juice for a few more hours. Only once did we manage to kill the battery within a day -- and that was a 17-hour day that involved a one-hour Skype call over WiFi. In our standard looped video run-down test, the Xperia Z1 lasted over 12 hours"
Hitting the red means 15% left, 15% is enough for many hours of light usage, and these numbers are always with stamina mode off. However i dont understand why he mention the skype call, that doesnt drain the battery that much, unless it was a Skype video call, its very likely, why else would he bother to mention that?? In that case its makes it more impressive.

You sure the S4 Has better battery life? On many other sites the Z1 beats the S4 in video playback it maybe the newer firmware but the video loop test on Engaget said the Z1 died after 12 hours of continuous video playback while the S4 died after 9 hours only the G2 lasted longer.
msn, 25 Sep 2013If it was waterproof , i've bought it :(An obvious troll OR go and learn to read and comprehend what you read as the phone is Waterproof!
[deleted post]Yes and we will read about it in the Nokia section, not in the Sony section.
I work in mobile phones, so i have hands on time with all phone and product loan them too, and i can say as an owner of a z1, htc one and an iphone 5 that the z1 is a BEAST the best one out of the lot.
Got the phone, love it as an upgrade from the Z. Camera performs better than the Z, flawless operation. No hangs on app opening or homescreen switching like my Z. Love the aluminum body, feels much better in the hand than the Z, not as sharp. Very comfy unlike the Z to use next to my ear. As for comparision with any other phone I do not care, got it at the price I am happy paying and it does all I need.
A great gadget manufacturer like Sony is really suffering from absence of in-house OS development. Android at its best is a dumber little brother of IOS and sony has been an organisation known for settling for 2nd best. After the death of Steve Jobs apple has become a sinking ship, because of total lack of direction and inspiration. A takeover of apple by sony would be a dream come true in this situation. There is a great tested OS in the form of IOS and there is legendary manufacturer in the sony. If sony takes the helm of the sinking ship of apple, they can conquer it all and both of these organisations can be restored to their former glory...
