My Z1 was running great on Kitkat, but since updated to Lollipop, the phone is overheating and the battery life has has gone poor. Some of the functions like mute/silent have been removed from Lollipop not to mention other shortcomings. Will Sony please issue quick fix update to fix the bugs in Lollipop. For users who have not yet updated to Lollipop, my advise DON'T.
I've been using the Z1 since the 1st day of release, here are the positives and negatives
+best build quality out there, no phone comes even close except the iPhone
+Perfect screen size
+Kit Kat on this phone was utter perfection
-a bit too heavy, my pinky finger is strained because of years of heavy lifting the phone for hours
-20MP camera isn't as good as i expected it to be
-Battery still isn't sufficient, I'm a heavy user and i want my phone to last at least an entire day
-Lollipop transformed my phone into utter cr*p, I can't believe Sony would settle for such a low quality update
-don't try to submerge this device in water, the speaker won't be happy
I hope sony fixes this nightmare called lollipop , because it has literally transformed my phone from perfect to garbage. This is indeed the first time i thought seriously about getting an iphone
My phone is showing overheat n battery is also not getting charge.. What should I do? Plz help
270 build number awesome
No heat up no bug no freeze or bettey backup so much well.now happy with lolipop.

Do not buy Xperia Z1. There's a camera error in every Xperia Z1 phones.At night pics are getting white if we click it with flash on. You can't we click a pic of moon or any thing which have black background all pics are getting white... Even the Sony regional department(Mr sunil patil) agreed with this but they didn't solved my problem. So now I'm filling a case against Sony India. You can contact me for help email@example.com
Anybody elese experiencing equalizer issues after 5.0.2?
It seems that the equalizer is only activated when playing music from walkman app.
Any sound coming from other apps and notifications all sound like crap on Z1 speaker as the equalizer is deactivated.
I remember we had this exact same issue when upgrading my Z1 to 4.3 for the first time.
Its astonishing how Sony reintroduced the same bug into later software updates.
Anonymous, 19 May 2015R u sure about these? Bcoz many users complain after updating their z1. Im also curious about... moreyes.. pretty sure bout it mate.. unless you installed custom firmware. otherwise.. no problem up to now.

charm, 11 May 2015How to read install lollipop software? its simple mate.. download sony pc companion.. then follow instructions when you select the software update section..this will download the 5.0.2 lollipop firmware takes about 3-4 hours depending on your net connection..if you are rooted.. better fullt unroot otherwise install will not proceed.
so if I update my lollipop did the camera still the same? or had a problem, issue or else??
please dont Purchase sonly mobiles considering waterproof technology only. No smartphone is waterproof in reality they just makes fool to customer. If once water entered into ur phone Sony will never repair it or will pay for it. My Xperia Z1 got damaged just by washing it and now Sony not repairing it.U keep complaining but nobody will listen.
Sony Xperia Z1 is my favorite smart phone. it's very good and i already upgrade android version 5.0.2 lollipop. it's awesome. i love
