Sony Xperia Z1 Review

This is my review of the Sony Xperia Z1 after having used it for two weeks as my daily driver. It came at a time when the flagships from LG and Samsung were both hitting so I had a good chance to really compare what I liked and didn’t like. The Z1 is a huge step in the right direction after such an underwhelming showing with the Xperia Z.

  1. Hi Kurt! what are the disadvantages of Z1? which is the best sony phone m4 aqua or this one? ; another thing if you would choose between sony or samsung which one will you choose? I'm bit torn between the two brands. thank you

  2. i have this phone, and after transferring all my photos and videos to my SD card, to clear internal storage, there are still a ton of pictures that won't transfer, after clearing the Sd card, it still says there is nothing else to transfer even though there are still atleast over a hundred images that never transfer, so how do i get these images out of my internal memory without deleting them, please help me, thankyou,  also i want to know if the Z1 is supposed to come with a waterproof cap for the headphone jack, because mine did not ?

  3. I got this phone and I regret it. It has had to go into repairs twice and it just stopped working each time. The first time it would turn on then abruptly turn off. Now it just won't charge, and when I get it to boot to the point I can actually interact with the phone, it shut off. I regret this

  4. Just bought this phone and it'll show up soon. Wish I didn't have to upgrade so soon from my Motorola Droid Razr HD but god damn the AMOLED screen has my keyboard burned in and shit, otherwise it's an amazing rugged phone I'll never get rid of

  5. Guys be honest with me. I will buy this phone or the S4. That is my short list. I live in the UK and my people can get me either. Those who own the Z1, what is the battery like? This phone looks good but I have heard negative results about this phone. 

  6. Guys, i need some help. I really want a Xperia Z1 mas im scared of regretting… im really used to the screen of my Gs3 which is a Super Amoled HD. But i wanna swith my phone for one that has a better screen. Some reviews tells that Z1 has a disappointing screen. But i wanna know about the brightneds, color reproduction and image quality. Is it good on z1? Somehow Amoled annoys a little bit cuz its over saturated. Help me!

  7. Can anyone with this phone tell me how long does it take to turn on Wi-Fi sharing for other devices. Is it the same as the new android on sgs3? There you just have to draw the popup menu, tap the quick settings (not the overall settings) and tap wifi sharing.

    Also any comments on the calendar would be appreciated.
