Sony Z1 Reviews

So what do people think of the new flagship from Sony? The Sony Z1

I will have to wait till after work to mess about with it but so far the reviews are not good.

Pros:

 

Very fast on the whole

Very nice camera

 

Cons:

 

Size (won't bother some people)

Weight (too heavy for a phone imo)

Screen (not able to compete with other high end phones)

No headphones in the box (chat said they have ordered some to send out)

 

Summary:

 

Coming from S4, iPhone 4S/5, HTC One - won't like it most likely!

Coming from other device - you will most likely love it

 

All IMO of course Smiley Happy

Re: Sony Z1 Reviews

I've come from an apple background last being the 4s and I feel like the Xperia z1 is a big upgrade my screen is amazing.
I find it;
Fast
Easy to.use coming from ios
Camera is great esp in manual
Qx10 lens is amazing
Quality product the materials and weight are really nice
It's not too big for me I can type one handed

Only things that are irking me are thumbprints, they really show up! And just getting used to the keyboard
I'm very pleased I got the Xperia z1 def the right choice!

Re: Sony Z1 Reviews

Am home and playing with it now!

 

first thought is wow it is huge and heavy (I had the S3) when i am using one hand my thumb is starting to hurt a little. after a few moment i kind of got used to the weight and size tho.

it is super fast and the screen is pretty good.

camera i'm not too sure on at the moment a couple of snaps so far seem to be average and a bit off colur and does not look natural.

 

if i do keep i will have to swap for the white one tho as i poped inot o2 on the way home from work and OMG it looks so much more better than the black one

You have to tap the two nfc symbols on each device together. The one on the phone is on the back and on the lens its on the side.
