Default The famous touch screen issue!

Hi

My previous phone just broke and i pllaned to get a new one..

So i was searching in some sites and found the xZ1.. immadietly i ran to the store and when i arrived the seller told me that the device is out of stock..,

So i went home and looked on xda to see some reviews and comments about the device

And i found few interesting problems:

1. Touch Screen issue (The screen dont reconize touch)
2. Yellow hue problem (sord of yellow tint on the screen)
3.Bad WiFi reception

So i decided i will test the device infront of the seller and see if the phone is clear of all probs,

Pls tell me if someone from all owners out there, that u got a Xperia Z1 that dont have any problem of the probs i mention above!

I so wanna get it but i afraid those probs are exist on any Z1..

Hi ,

0. I have the Z1 and the only issue I have faced till now is bad Wifi reception WHICH HAS NOW BEEN FIXED on the 4.3 update.

1.Some devices do run into the touch Screen issue, As long as you are within the warranty you can exchange the device.

2. I know some people who own the device and none of them has run into the Yellow hue issue. But if you do Sony has released a Fix, which has been ported on: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2572080

3. Bad wifi reception is not horrible wifi reception, i live in a two floor house and my room is the furthest from a crappy modem. And I still have 1 to 2 bars of Wifi on 4.2 and 4 bars of Wifi on 4.3 (after latest update)

4.Another issue people mention is the Noise on Camera (dots showing on higher resolution pictures) this is due to the professionalism of the camera It requires certain features which sony still has to implement, this camera is The best camera phone!


In general the 4 issues above mentioned should not define your decision, because there are work arounds most of them.

Its an amazing phone and i do not regret getting it.

I have the device for 2 days now and I can confirm the yellow hue, but it's only visible when you place the Z1 next to another device with both showing white color. If I wouldn't do that then I wouldn't be able to notice.

As for the touchscreen - I got this issue twice but it was gone after few seconds.

As for the WiFi - if the Internet shared by the router is under load (downloading, sending etc.) it shows regular reception but it drops to 1 bar and pops out an error with connecting.
Other than that, when the Internet is used in a regular way like PPL use YouTube, browse the Web then I have reception like a laptop or better so I can't complain. It's also better than my old xperia play.

As for the camera - It's STUNNING. Honestly - I've never seen a better camera in any phone. Yesterday I took a picture at night when I could barely see anything with my eyes and I actually could disguise a tree.

Don't hesitate to get it. Getting custom rom installed on a LB may be hard but it will be solved soon. I'm more than happy that I got this phone.

I'm having some real life issues. Development is not stopped, but it surely is going to be slower.

Does anyone tried to reproduce the touch problem? (The guide that says to wait 30 seconds with the device naked..)

And didnt experience anything??
I mean, the device is completly fine and didnt have any stops on the touch test?
