sahbi sidhu, 22 Sep 2013they said, it is a pre production model that we had reviewed..hope they will review the retail... moreyes you're right and we know that preproduction models are less than perfect compared to the retail ones.
Apputana, 21 Sep 2013 Is there any picture quality differences between Super AMOLED and LCD screen ?
... moreZ1 display is way better. note 3 (amoled display produce fake colours with oversaturstion.
Z1 display is very bright and has better sunlight legibility even in suniest days.
edyl, 22 Sep 2013I think gsmarena's review of Z1 is too early. All the flaws that were mentioned in this review... morethey said, it is a pre production model that we had reviewed..hope they will review the retail unit soon.
Raj, 21 Sep 2013Sony phones look good only on paper..at least that has been the case till now. Their 1080p ful... moreyou know nothing man...
xperia Z1 camera is 70% bigger in size than note 3 or s4 camera.
actually, it has bigger pixel size than l1020.
1020- 1/1.5" at 41 mp.
Z1 - 1/2.3" at 20.7 mp.
Z1 has approx. half megapixel's count compared to 1020.(41mp).
so, if we make the 1020's camera half size and half its mp count then it would be like this:-
1/3.0" at 20.5 mp.
xperia Z1 is a beast..
Dude, check out the low light and daylight camera samples here: http://twentyfirsttech.com/2013/09/13/heads-up-lumia-1020-theres-a-new-kid-on-the-block-say-hi-to-the-xperia-z1/
Seriously amazing. Yes, not as good as the Lumia 1020, but the best non-WP8 camera in existence. Even better than S4 zoom because it sucks. Can't keep it in pocket. Almost as good as digital cameras.
xperia z1 is so awesome but xperia z2 is also a wow factor.. with 20.7 mp
Xeon flash, 3GB RAM, 3500mh battery
I think gsmarena's review of Z1 is too early. All the flaws that were mentioned in this review will be solved after Sony's upcoming updates like what they did on Z. They should update this review once Z1's updates have been done.
i love sony phones because of music quality,especially walkman app.it brings out real audio sound than any other smartphone.other phones produce noisy and echo sound.SONY phones has sharp & brilliant display,other phones like Samsung htc and lg,most Samsung they look cheap and common but SONY phones are unique
this phone can't read all video formats.
Not shock proof like xp active
Can't do multi-tasking..
Not yet 3d sounds like xp u
