I bought Sony Xperia Z1 on the day of its release. I am totally impressed with the phone. Display is awesome with X-Reality engine and Triluminads display. Way ahead than its predecessor. Camera is stunning. With photos being taken in full 20.7MP, details are very clear.Even if you zoom the picture, it will not break into pixels soon. Pictures in low light are awesome. If someone is not satisfied with the camera or phone, then he has't explored much. Using Superior Auto mode is waste having Xperia Z1 in hand (This will change the resoltion into 8MP). Use Manual mode for 20.7 MP shoot.
is there a call reject option in the z1? i was using galaxy note for the past two years, it had that option... just changed it to z1 yesterday...
it is a good mobile.its popularity world wide.i believe that it is a fantastic mobilphone.
When this phone available is Middle east, i mean in Oman, UAE ? anybody knows ?
I am so convinced to have this phone... waited and excited. Then I got disappointed with the camera reviews. What?! Sony manufactured cameras for other phones then can't provide best results for their own? Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!
So, I checked google for other camera samples. Sure, they look a little dull on my pc screen. But when I look at it at my Sony Bravia TV (5yr old model), they look great! So I guess, Sony checked their camera results at their own TV screens. I have a sony tv so problem solved!(for me)
Now, about the printed results, I have no idea.
I still wish though that it would have a new version of all-white Xperia Z1. Go Sony! :)
Neil, 23 Sep 2013I have the Xperia Z1 for a few days now. The phone is amazing with really cool features. Its f... moreYou did not mention awful battery life and its a dust magnet..Camera is not that good most my shots are blurred and zooming in there are lots of digital artifacts,bright flower shots of yellow flowers colours are just blown out.I used it on way to work for an hour satnav and pulling in email and it was down to 47% which is unacceptable.When you all get yours hopefully you will see my findings,,i am in Scotland and have now cancelled my contract under cooling off period..
I am not going to try another one in case its faulty due to T&c stating if i accept another phone i am accepting contract i do not want to get stuck with Z1.I think Sony can do much better.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2013has anyone found any faults on it yet??Dude, for what it is worth No but seriously think you need to get some positivity in your life. Anyone found any faults yet....listen to yourself!
AnonD-129591, 17 Jul 2013Whats big your expecting? 10GB RAM, 60MP Camera, 32cores @14.48GHz? Or a 32" screen?Why not!?! we aren't living in 10,000 BC :D
LoL @ retail package.. such shame!You can take back your precious-gold-coated charger too.. no worries~
I have the Xperia Z1 for a few days now. The phone is amazing with really cool features. Its fast and can multi task too. Overall happy with my purchase but the one thing I am very shocked and disappointed is with the camera pictures. The photos are no way to 20mp at all. I find my iphone 4S taking better pictures.
Secondly the wifi strength of the phone is poor. I have a HTC Butterfly, Iphone 5 and 4S all will show full strength on the mobile the xperia Z1 shows only 1 bar.
If you main purchase for this phone is the camera I would strongly suggest people to take a photo where you have to zoom and than enlarge the picture. You will see the clarity.
hi frds sony xperia z1 compare to samsung galaxy s4 mini mobiles which one is better to buy please suggest me ......................
how come this doesnt have 4k recording ?? even though it has snapdragon 800 ? i know its not the most useful feature for everyone but still having it is a big plus ..hope it gets 4k with 4.3 or 4.4 updates
Raj, 21 Sep 2013Sony phones look good only on paper..at least that has been the case till now. Their 1080p ful... moreZ1 has biggest sensor on android blackberry ios!!
As for optics they are sony g lens which are basically minolta lenses as sony bought them out.
The sensor size of z1 is the same 1/2.3" as found in most compact cameras upto £300.
So image quality should be on par with camera.
Remenmber sony makes proffessional cameras lenses sensors for music film industry.
Also nikon sony pentax and others all use sony 1/2.3" sensors and aps-c slr sensors also full frame dslr sensors.
if you dont know cameras do not comment.
As for the fone alot of people complain about the bezels dont make the phone easier to hadle fact!
Viewing angles have been fixes fact!
Reason of extra size the fone is WATERRESISTANT!!!
CAMERA HAS BIGGEST SENSOR (apart from lumia 1020)
