I think you didn't yet realize what an advancement Exmor RS is, technology advancement is something that does not compute for you? In 2 years we will have 1/3.2" sensors that beats 808 PoorView.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013I think the phone would look nicer if it had a smaller bezel. Also, I'm not a fan of the UI so... moreIt's like stock android ui, you mean you don't like android? Then get iPhone or Lumia.
i know that z1 is the best phone. and z1 display with x reality is the best display ...better than galasy note3 display
Gand faad, 11 Sep 2013Finally here is a perfect phone. is there any device that can compete with it???HTC One is the best phone in the market. Xperia zr1 is great too but I just feel like it can't be better then HTC one
I think the phone would look nicer if it had a smaller bezel. Also, I'm not a fan of the UI so I hope that Sony changes it rather dramatically for their next flagship. I'm not a fan of rooting anymore so I have to like the UI quite a bit since I'd have to stick with it for a little while.
vivio, 11 Sep 2013it has 3x optical zoom i think and f 2.0 tooDo you even know what optical zoom is? It's that big thing on S4 Zoom.
Ya this device is great, but I expected 4k video recording in it.
Also expecting a mini version and a dual sim variant from sony with this camera.
large screens will not suitable for all people as well as single sim.
Dudley Dinesh, 11 Sep 2013hey,dude xperia z1 has better than nokia 808. Only in fake tests. :-) No xenon, no mechanical shutter, smaller sensor, how could Z1 be better in real life?
Gand faad, 11 Sep 2013Finally here is a perfect phone.

Note 3 is faraway better...
Oh come one Sony... we need a Go/Active successor. Where's your new mid-range rugged/waterproof phone? :(

Anonymous, 11 Sep 2013smoking weed is bad you know...Didnt you read the comparison? I think Z1 did an amazing job, it won where it really mattes, and that is in difficult shots. Sure 808 is great under perfect daylight conditions (but even then it loses to Z1 in white balance), and Z1 gives superior results when the others have to throw in the towel.
By the way, we already knew that 808 was a bit hyped, giving great detail and virtually no noise in perfect daylight is good but what about the rest of the time? Even Xperia Z is better as an all-rounder, a reliable point and shoot that doesnt make any serious blunders, and Z1 combines that ability with a great sensor and superior lens, its the perfect camphone that handles virtually every situation, and it does so without looking like a monstrosity hunchback.

Ahsan Omi , 11 Sep 2013Will it be having the same screen clarity like previous 'Z' or bit brighter like S4 ??The screen is a match for any out there! See it and believe it. It is amazing!
Stop trolling and telling lies! I have had the pleasure of handling this beast and I can truly say that even holding the phone at zero degrees, the images (I was watching a trailer of Elysium on it) are still extremely clear. Stop your sinful lying ways and stop trolling. It is simple really, don't like it then don't buy it but spare us your paid fanboy trolling lying ways!

And by the way, all smartphone displays use TFT, even the amoled ones, its just your lack of understanding that is the problem here, this phone has a great display.
