Default [Q] Problems here, problems there, problems everywhere.

Hello.

I have a problem. I want to buy the Z1 but I don’t know if I should.

I already bought the Z1 in November. I was setting it up for about 3 days and then my house was robbed and the phone was stolen. I even not had the chance to use it as a phone…
The insurance company is going to cover the stolen Z1.

In the meanwhile I see all over the internet Z1 yellow washed self-cracked screens, asf that cannot be removed because of warranty and it scratch really bad. Problems with overeating, touch screen sensibility, wifi, etc.

So, was this sad episode some kind of divine intervention or it’s a reasonable choice to buy it again?

I liked the Z1, despite of the internal features, because of the glass and aluminum look. I’m looking also to Samsung s4 and note 3 but they look to plastic for top phones. I like HTC One but only in black which is very hard to find. The 5S is also in my mind. I can discard a large display if the device is ergonomic and pocket jeans friendly.

I need to buy a new phone because my WM HTC HD2 is becoming serious outdated. But for a phone with 4 years of daily use it doesn’t have any scratches in the display or in the back. This guy is tough and never failed me.

Long story short I just don’t want to give a lot of money for a piece of sh… top phone! I just want a phone for the next 4 years.

Thank you all !

I'm an owner of an Xperia Z1 and I must say it is a beutifully designed phone and a superior camera... But then a major problem that I have with it is that touchscreen does NOT work properly. I think you should wait until the 4.3 update comes and see whether the problem is fixed. But I doubt that this is a software problem so better not buy it till the 4.3 update comes and we'll see whether it fixes the problem. Stay tuned to Z1 XDA so you can be sure.
Phone : Xperia Z1
Rom : Stock and De-bloated
Kernel : Stock
Baseband : 22
Bootloader: : Locked
Root : Yes

Secondary phone : Xperia Arc S
Rom : Stock and De-bloated
Kernel : Advanced Stock
Baseband : 66
Bootloader : Unlocked
Root : Yes

Stock Roms always work best

If you even think that Z1 is a piece of sh... top phone, then don't buy it.

He merely stated he is having second thoughts he never said it is a piece of sh*. I feel the same the way I am in the market for a new top end smartphone and I really like the design/features of the Z1 but if you go into the Sony Forums or any other it just seems most users are unhappy and having lots of issues. I understand every smartphone has its own problems but from what I have been reading Sony does not want to acknowledge or fix possible hardware issues that users are facing. This is a very expensive phone and you would expect top notch quality along with service. I will be waiting another month to see what happens before I make my decision.

i couldn't say it better. thank you !

For the people experiencing problems imagine this: instead of having your Z1 in your hand right now, you have the money you gave for it. Would you buy it again ???

I would buy it again(again my only problem is a yellow hue on white backgrounds)

Or to be more precise some white backgrounds look yellowish wheb compared to other phones(Z ultra, Z or iphone 5)

I would also buy it again.
I must also say that at this moment, i do not have any of the problems stated on this forum (yellow tint, touch screen problem, wi-fi problem).
The major problem that all the z1 users have, is the camera not working with an unlocked bootloader.
But i would still buy it again

My Z1 is on it's way to Sony repair right now because of the touchscreen issue but if I knew that this particular problem could be fixed (or that it occurs just in a certain batch) I would in every circumstance buy the Z1 over any other phone on the market right now.

You'll see people bitching about every little nitpicky thing in every forum of every device on this website. My Z1 is fine.

I think it will come back to you with 4.3 or 4.4.
