Ahh okay. I've been doing some more research and the Sony Experia Z1 looks really nice. I think I'd rather invest in that instead of a GS4.

Well at least you're not sticking with the iPhone.

Hi,

I own a Z1, and it's an amazing device in all aspects. It doesn't have the same "BOOM" effect that S4 screen has, and the viewing angles are rather meh, but when X-Reality is activated in videos and such you get an amazing experience!

Also, make sure you buy a case for your Z1 if you get one, because my one slipped from my pocket and now the screen is shattered and touch isn't working anymore, bought a screen on eBay and waiting for it to arrive.

Here's a small pros and cons of both devices, from personal using of course.
Quote:

Galaxy S4 (GT-i9505)
Pros:

  1. Better viewing angles
  2. Removable battery
  3. More resistance
  4. Larger development
  5. Very thin
  6. Incredibly light
  7. Very small bezels

Cons:
  1. Crappy plastic
  2. Horrible stock UI (Touchwizz)
  3. Lacks of premium design

Quote:

Xperia Z1
Pros:

  1. Awesome battery life (≈5-6 hours screen on time)
  2. More processing power
  3. Premium design
  4. Stock UI optimized for device
  5. Mind blowing camera (check in Xperia Z1 thread the pictures it can take)
  6. Water resistant
  7. Good stock UI
  8. Hardware camera button (better for focusing, for example)

Cons:
  1. Not resistant to falls
  2. Crappy viewing angles
  3. Huge bezels
  4. Heavier (but I liked the weight distribution I might say)
  5. Easy scratching screen and glass back
  6. Mediocre external speaker

Hope I could be of a good help . If it was me to choose one, I'd go for Z1 .
