Top critical review
2 years of frustration
Reviewed in the United States on June 11, 2016
After 2 years this phone has finally kicked the bucket. At first I was incredibly impressed with all of its features (the slick design, easy layout, and waterproof capabilities). But as time went on, I noticed little annoyances here and there (camera freezing, randomly resetting, buttons and flaps breaking off, speaker loosing volume, and headphone jack not working). The last few months I owned it, the battery life slowly got worse and worse, until the point where I could only use my phone with low battery consumption for 1 hour before it drains from supposedly 95% to 0% and immediately shut off. As of right now, it no longer charges or turns on, so it's going to be a pain to get my files off of it, but frankly, I put up with this phone for 2 years, and I am glad it is gone so I can get a much higher quality phone. RIP Xperia Z1. You were almost worth it.
