Default Xperia Z1 size and camera.

so chances are tommorow im going to go buy a Z1, but the one thing that bothers me is the size of the thing.
i have an Xperia Z, but i already feel that it's at the edge of my comfort zone. How does the Xperia Z1 feel in the hand? is it easy to use in one handed fashion or is it just usable?

and how is the camera after the latest updates?

hi there..

well... i actually think it has a good size now... i come from the Z also, and it is almost the same... you will get used to it and enjoy it after a while

the camera is fair enough, it will probably be better once the Z2 comes out... so we hope... but it takes good pictures...

If it's the size what bothers you, you can buy a Z1 compact which is the same thing. Here are the specs:

the z1 is basically slightly longer than z..so handling shldnt be a major prob
camera is amazing for a phone..its considerably better than xz 13 mp

Xperia Z : 139 x 71 x 7.9 mm (5.47 x 2.80 x 0.31 in) 146 g (5.15 oz)
Xperia Z1: 144 x 74 x 8.5 mm (5.67 x 2.91 x 0.33 in) 170 g (6.00 oz)
Xperia Z1 Compact : 127 x 64.9 x 9.5 mm (5.0 x 2.56 x 0.37 in) 137 g (4.83 oz)

Z1 is feel good in hand. Not a big phone.
The ppi of Z1 Screen is 441. The photo it took is clear and nice. But its screen is a little yellow. The photo of Z1 is dimmer than Samsung phone.
