I have T-mobile and 4g works with it. The phone has pretty good connection most of the time network is accessible.
The phone was severely fallen to concrete floor for 2 times. No cracks or any scratches on the glass sides. Small scratches on a flank side but no dents or deformations. I'm happy it is so sturdy (or I'm so lucky)))
It takes good looking pictures even in tough exposition conditions like sunsets, background illumination etc. Can't say it is much better than iPhone 5 camera but I find it generally better. Night pictures have high iso noise. Focus has been improved after the last update.
I really enjoy the fact that if I plug the phone to pc by common micro-usb cable it may be detected as a simple storage. No stupid iTunes (You can install sony app from the phone if so you WANT. But you don't have to. At all).
4. Sync, Charge and Watertight flaps.
I sync the phone by wireless and use dock station Sony DK31 Cradle to charge it. So I don't open watertight flaps at all.
I haven't taken any photos under water yet but I did call the phone in spa bath and got the phone under rain. Also once it was in sand. No problems. Since that I like the idea that I can receive a call if I'm interrupted in a shower))
I've found much of the Sony software useless. Can't say it is bad nor good I just get used to other apps. Android has a giant apps market with a lot of alternatives.
The hardware is pretty fast. I haven't found any slow running or laggy application or game yet.
As all slim smartphones with high-end hardware you have to put the phone on charger often. It takes 1 day or less to discharge in normal mode. 2.5 - 3 days in stamina mode. 1.5 - 2 days in normal mode with battery saving soft installed. I'm sure it will worsen when the battery exhausted in 1-2 years.
Pretty sharp. I've found it good but not exceptional. I mean it is good, bright and sharp for reading, surfing, gaming. But pictures on my old iPhone are looking the same good as on calibrated LCD. Pictures on Z1 looks worse than on PC. I know the description is very subjective, but that is what I can say. Video works fine.
10. As a player.
I REALLY like that I can download any player from market and listen possibly ANY file format. WITHOUT iTunes. After 3 years of using iDevices I couldn't get used to it. I mean, managing my library by folders, putting music to phone by simple copying what I need and WHERE I need is much much more convenient for me than using iTunes.
11. Sound quality.
I compared Z1 output with V90-HPA headphone preamp using Sure 535 earphones. Surprisingly the difference is not so big at all. Z1 sounds brighter while V90 sounds softer and deeper. But there is NO such a gap like between laptop internal sound card and V90. I would be really impressed if the phone sounded better. But... I'm still impressed with the comparison.
I'm happy I have it. I would recommend it among all the other devices of the same class that are currently on the market.
First: it didn't work properly with the carrier I use, even though the specs include the band used by the operator.
Second: If you plug any headphones, only the left side has sound. The right... Well is mute.
Third: It doesn't work as expected with the charger. It charges extremely slow and there are cases when it doesn't charge at all.
Fourth: Despite all those things, I decided to use it as a second phone with another carrier, well.. it bended.
And finally the screen cracked, even though it says that is more resistant.
I bought at the same time a z2a and it is working just fine (5 stars so far). I think the seller sent me a badly refurbished unit.
This phone accept this have great screen and touch options what help me good during usage. The water resistance I don't try a lot , no to much water in desert :) .. and if I drop it , its just sand or dust.
Phone is asome, performance are high....quality ,design ...u have to buy it ..best best choice ... FGS Trade ... ..
