Verdict

With the Xperia Z1, Sony has combined its expertise in cameras and TVs, to bring Bravia technology to the display and an EXMOR RS to the camera. It's water and dust-proof abilities and 20.7MP camera make it a worthy flagship.


Now, Sony is all set to launch its successor dubbed as Sony Xperia Z2 featuring fast processor, larger display and long battery life than Z1.

A worthy flagship from the house of Sony

Design and Configuration

The eagerly awaited Sony Xperia Z1 sports an elegant frame, retaining the Xperia design. The large 5-inch display offers full HD resolution and is scratch-resistant too. Sony has brought its Bravia Engine from its TV range to this phone, to improve the viewing experience.

Performance is assured by the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset, paired with 2GB RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU for gaming performance. 

Camera and Storage

The Xperia Z1's rear camera is the highlight of the device, which at 20.7MP is the highest among Android smartphones. It also offers a Sony EXMOR sensor and 1080p video recording. Up front there is a 2MP camera for video calls.

Storage is not a concern with 16GB of internal space, expandable by another 64GB using a microSD card.

Connectivity and Battery

The Sony Xperia Z1 comes with all the major connectivity options, like 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS (with A-GPS) and microUSB. The Z1 draws power from a 3000mAh Li-ion battery.

Rugged smartphone

Like its predecessor, Sony Xperia Z1 is both dust and waterproof, and can survive under 1.5 feet of water for 30 minutes, enabling underwater photography.

Eye Opener !
30 Sep 2013 By Vishal Gaur On flipkart.com

Hi Phone Maniacs,nI walked into the CROMA store today to check out both the phones inside out. There is a saying guys "Everything that glitters is NOT GOLD". There is no better way to describe NOTE 3. The moment you look at it the first thing that comes into your mind is 'wow' but the moment you start using it, any smart and sensible guy will take a decision in 5min whether or not its worth the price !! TRUST me guys, I was in the STORE for more than an hour. They all asked me to buy NOTE 3 (for obv reasons) that is PROFIT ! Now see the irony: when i started questioning them and put a few Qs if its really worth spending so much for only a few small changes? believe me they were quiet ! nI think Samsung has lost TOTALLY IN THE HEAD. . Its main focus now has become to make people get addicted to the brand and nothing else. LIKE APPLE ! Moreover, Samsung has not learned anything from its shittiest production: i/e S4. . Just like S4 guys, NOTE 3 started heating up with normal usage. I am not here to downgrade the brand but whats there is there.. I myself had S3 which I truly loved but had to sell for some reasons and then got S4 which i proudly sold cz i did not deserve that piece of shit ! dont know about you guys bt i personally get totally freaked out if my device is heating up even with normal usage. ITS is obv that any smartphone will heat up if u run heave applications on it.. point taken.. cz at the end of the day its a machine. but if that happens with a normal usage like message, browsing, chatting,, something is really wrong !!!!! NOTE 2 is the best example ! Use as much as u want and that beast would just not heat up, unless used extremely heavily !! games etc.. I experienced the same with NOTE 3, hardly with 10min of usage the fone showed its true colors. n2) The back of the phone is so fake and local.. its not leather.. its still plastic and feels ever cheaper than earlier phones ! complete plastic back was way better. God knows why samsung went too proud about the cheap leather like panel. 3) Lets ADMIT one thing : Do we really need a phone like this? I mean what the hell is so out of the world about it? according to me NOTHING ! Do hell with Spen guys .. by the time u will take it out and put it back ur work will already be done ! i mean who the hell type a message, save a contact or calculate stuff by taking out a Spen? I DONT ! NEVER WILL. its there unnecessarily ! I am not a business tycoon and my hands work fine ! Another thing: even the spen is not as responsive as you may have seen on videos. Screenshots, sharing data/pics, writing a note, saving contact details or searching a file.. All of this can be done thru ur fingertips and u dnt have to pay 50k for that ! NOTE 3: To conclude, I will never pay 50k for a fone that heats up like shit,. I am not a clarity freak honestly.. i m happy with anything that is nice to look at.. as long as my phone does not lag and gives me a clear view of pics i am a happy man.. A bit of extra clarity, 13mp camera .. and 4.3 OS i dont thnk its worth spending that much. 4.3 update will any be pushed out by end of the year, a standard camera like 8mp is also very good unless ur a camera freak .. and if u are your objective should be to buy a CAMERA not a PHONE !! NOTE 3 was a complete turn off ! nSony Xperia Z1 : Folks, the moment I held it, i swear to god, i just could not put it back and i did not ! The phone is so comfortable, EXCELLENT glass make at the back and fits your hands completely. Its a simply one handed fone !!!!! OVERALL, Z1 turns out to be a better phone ! Amazing camera, video clarity, super comfortable, dust/waterproof, standard 5inch screen.. and most importantly looks like a phone not a TABLET.. Fell in love with it the moment i used it ! The speaker is not as good as samsung but i dont care.. its way ahead in front of NOTE 3 any day.. i took an instant decision ! nnI REAPEAT: it just gets on you from the moment you hold it.. you just dont wana put it down. its totally the opp with NOTE 3: u just wanna put it down asap.. unless ur Yao Ming or gifted with super big hands.If ur really looking for an economic option guys.. just close ur eyes and go for NOTE 2. its a BULL ! but if u want something a lil more newer and stylish.. buy Z1. I spent a lot of hours finding negative reviews for NOTE 2. . Honestly people i did not find any.. i mean NOTHING AT ALL. its an absolute blessing ! Hope my review has given a some of you a reality check ! Sorry for a long one but just trying to help people out there ! nnCheers and stay safe !
