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.
camera it's not so good. better on iphone5 .. compare them and u will see

Hit the red means below 15 on Xperia devices, go educate yourself.
AnonD-59047, 26 Sep 2013Do you even understand what the guy said smh he said the phone lasted the entire day and night... moreOh the ignorance some people manage to display. Go and read, it clearly says it hit the red and could be used for many hours still, he wrote it, could stil be used many hours! The red is when it goes below 15%.
Go be ignorant somewhere else, at least untill you learned how to read properly
Martin, 26 Sep 2013Beware, I got the phone yesterday and they say it is scratch proof, let me tell you that this ... moreBuddy, the scratch resistant glass obeys a simple damn rule:
If a tougher material rubs it, it will get scratched.Now, a key is made from a tougher material so it will scratch any phone glass at the moment, unless is made of real diamond.If you buy a phone, you will buy a screen protector and a case.
Now stop your whining and enjoy the phone.Next time browse google before filling in forums with silly complaints.
Best of luck

AnonD-190703, 26 Sep 2013Guys...wants to know...whether z1 produces heat , tower complaints , battery backup... as im ... moreI was using the Xperia ARC over the Xperia T, purely down to battery. Now i have the Xperia Z1, Its truly outstanding the 2.2ghx with 2gb ram make a massive difference, The stamina mode helps, i stopped using it and put the stamina mode on at 11pm with 83% and woke up at 7:30 with 82% its amazing. I've not had any heat issues at all. The camera is top quality can really tell it have 20megapixels, Go out and get it.

There was a time when this Company was the Best | With the experience that i've had with The Sony Ericsson Service Centre, I hate its very name now | I gave my fone for Repairs & you'll lost it | Nobody took responsibility of it | Its been a year by now

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...

However, it depend... moreDo you even understand what the guy said smh he said the phone lasted the entire day and night and even 5hours of use the next day before it hit the red that means he used it for over a day and the some before he had to charge the device. 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.
