It has been a few months now and I have dropped my phone a few times since then, although no noticeable damage. Few things that occur:
-Sometimes auto-screen rotate does not work and I will have to restart my phone.
-When I take pictures, the result of the photo is turned a different way and I would have to manually rotate the photo back.
-Sometimes when I take a picture in superior auto mode, it gives me a 1 shot burst. I'm not holding it either. Restarting phone solved this problem.

Two issues that have been around since I first got my phone:
-I have more wi-fi issues with my Z1 than my Z. It often drops signal.
-Camera button sometimes does not work while phone display is off.... however I believe the kitkat update fixed it as I no longer have issues.

When in auto mode the phone anyways made the pictures as burst shot for me, it didn't matter when it was only just one picture.
And about the rotation issues, don't you disable rotation (if not, try enabling and dialing it next time it won't rotate) ?

I also have the rotation issue, sometimes when I play a game that relies on tilt, it doesn't work until I restart the phone.

Also my compass and magnetic field sensor do not work, is anyone else getting the same problems?
