Sony Xperia Z1

 

A chunky but exceptionally well made phone. Apple and Samsung should be worried

Dedicated camera button for underwater shooting, Curvy. more comfortable design, Speedy, overall performance

Disappointing low-light camera performance, Average viewing angles, Flimsy latches protecting ports and connections

Sony Xperia Z1 review: a powerful, waterproof delight

 

Can the Sony Xperia Z1 manage to slay the Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One?

Stylish and well-built ; Superb 20.7MP camera ; It’s waterproof

Too big for some ; Not cheap ; Speaker is average

Sony Xperia Z1

 

Sony fans will love it – this speedy slab of Xperia glass is an impressive smartphone

Superb sound ; Sophisticated screen ; Great battery life ; Waterproof and dustproof

Narrow viewing angles ; Not very ergonomic in the hand ; Camera not best in class

Much like the Xperia Z, this is a brilliant smartphone not just for sophisticated picture and sound quality that's a cut above most rivals but also as an all-round package.

Sony Xperia Z1 review

 

The Sony Xperia Z1 is more powerful and more waterproof than the Xperia Z it follows, but is it worth the upgrade?

One of the quickest Android phones on the planet ; Good battery life ; Waterproofing

Narrow viewing angles ; Camera could be better ; Still not especially ergonomic

It’s not a massive upgrade over the original Z, but Sony fans will still find a lot to love about this waterproof slab of glass

Sony Xperia Z1 review

 

Sony's twice-yearly flagship cycle has given birth to the Sony Xperia Z1, a super-charged refresh of the Sony Xperia Z offering a super-sized 5-inch HD screen. There's a lot to love about the Sony Xperia Z1. It's a valiant effort, but not infallible....

Plenty of decent software refinements, battery life with Stamina mode, solid build quality, power, fun camera features, waterproof

Display not best in class, seems larger than it perhaps needs to be, device can get very hot, camera not as far ahead as we'd hoped,

There's a lot to love about the Sony Xperia Z1. It's a valiant effort, but not infallible. We like the the design overall, it's a smart-looking device that exhibits plenty of quality and there's stacks of power under the hood of that 5-inch HD display.

Sony Xperia Z1 review

 

The next level of Sony's Android ambitions or a needless mid-cycle vanity upgrade?

Good battery life ; Waterproof ; Some clever Sony additions

Loads of Sony bloatware ; Disappointing indoor photos ; Erratic screen technology

It's a Range Rover for the school run. A gold toilet seat. Having all the sport and film channels on a telly in the shed. You'll feel awesome with one in your pocket, but for an all-round device, it feels like Sony has dropped the ball on design and...

Sony Xperia Z1 review

 

The Xperia Z1 looks very much like its predecessor but there are some noteworthy changes. The phone is still glass clad on the front and rear, but the rim is now aluminium instead of a rubbery plastic. Sony has also made the edges more rounded. It's...

Sony has upgraded its fantastic Xperia Z. The Xperia Z1 feels nicer but is unfortunately bigger and heavier. It's a powerhouse with an all-round impressive specification. Easily one of the best Android handsets around but the high price tag taints this...
