Awesome specs. Brilliant camera. This quintessential Sony Xperia Z1 is giving Samsung a run for its money.
AnonD-183952, 08 Sep 2013Buyer beware - This phone might never work with CyanogenMod; As Qualcomm is trying to kill ope... moreWhy would you tweak something on ze Z1, CyanogenMod is useles on this device. Did you read the specs?
it's better to get review from xperia neighbors as they know about sony very well...other haters blindly comment stuff without knowing sony...saw samsung guys and lg kids commenting and misleading people...just a friendly advice please don't mislead people unless you do a hands on approach

Anonymous, 09 Sep 2013not truei used lumia series....for some extent it's cool..but not as good as sony n will never be
AnonD-74483, 08 Sep 2013lol its coz s4's plastic Vs z1's dragontrail and corning gorilla glasshttp://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ubuntu-edge
gorgeous display with something vastly tougher than glass: pure sapphire crystal, a material so hard only diamond could scratch it.so dragontrail and gorilla not near to it.

AnonD-166796, 08 Sep 2013Please. LG and Samsung put Sony to shame. LG won countless design awards. Lg and Samsung have ... morePls tell us some 'real' problems of Sony Xperia Smart Phones, and yes, pls keep your points limited to Z, ZL, Z Ultra, and Z1 cause while you are praising Samsung and LG, you can only mention S3, S4 & note 2, about LG.....i don't know LG smart phones, have never seen any around.
Xperia Z1 is ok,but internal memory and ram is bad because this system was the full upgrade..

CM only have a huge ammount of Nightlies everyday, for a rest of your pathetic life. Do you understand?...Nightlies(Night of LIES), totally unstable versions of a "semi-improved android, ALLWAYS UNDER DEVELOP according they, roms without some interesting apps from the oems that results so useful sometimes.. Look guy, i´ll be honest with you...Don´t piss out of the WC!!!. I used CM many times with S2, S3 and Note1, actually my note 2 have stock, and the best and stable rom is the stock rom. For me....RIP CM!
PD: Is better root the stock android, and remove the unnecessary apps, that install unstable CM roms. End of History!

Fan, 08 Sep 2013Sony has best design thats much better than plastic.battery is about 3000 quite same as note3,... more1. When was the last time Sony won a design award??? Not in your dreams at night I mean reality. LG holds that title clearly. 2. Best camera? Clearly lumia holds that for any smartphone. 3. Triluminous is good but IPS is just the best to me IMO. 4. I'm 16, live in the DMV, How the hell am I a paid Samsung fan? Don't insinuate anything about me, you will get embarrassed on here. 4. Your still behind lenovo and zte in sales... Let that sit. 5.I like Sony but I'm more of an lg fan I'm just tired of Sony fanboys thinking they are better than Samsung and Lg when they aren't. They are blind by looks. 6. Lg are not copy cats? I like them more than Samsung but they copied them with g2 and g pro. Tell me if I'm wrong? And what did Samsung cheat on???
Only thing that is missing is 32 gb built in memory....g9d knows why the opted for 16 gb. Its not enough for the apps
A review with a few full-res photos appeared. It's in Russian but you can Google Translate and click on photos to enlarge. Pretty good if you don't look too close. A few oversharpening halos around the edges here and there, but that's 2013 phones for you. Otherwise, not much to worry about.
