    I have an Xperia S, before that a Q10, Milestone 2.

    It has a very nice weight, some might say heavy but I think it makes it feel premium, Materials feel nice in the hand etc Lovely!

    Assuming you've used an iPhone 5, how would you say it compares with an iPhone 5/5s in terms of the feel and one-handed use?

    Well I have used my friends as I don't like them personally. I would say it is probably better for one handed use as it's not as tall and the power button is on the side. I would say in terms of quality and feel, they are very similar and being biased I would go with the Sony. Must be good quality to be water proof haha

    That's awesome! I'm looking forward to checking out your review - are you going to post pictures taken with the Z1C?

    I wasn't planning on doing a "review" but I will list good and bad points, can take some pictures and post up too. I haven't started using it as my main phone yet, still using the Xperia S. I want to root it so I can copy app data to it and use some of my root apps

    Good points:
    • Very very fast, installed 80 apps one after another as fast as I could tap, no slow down, by the time I pressed "install" on the last app they were done.
    • Solid build quality and premium feel
    • Camera seems good!
    • Battery life seems great although I havent properly tested it


    Bad points:
    • The back gets lots of finger prints
    • It seems to attract dust but it is dust proof which is good!
    • Rooting at the moment requires an unlocked bootloader which will delete the drm keys forever, Can't back them up without root. So need to wait a little while to be able to root with a locked bootloader.

    Here are a few: The screens are the same size but you get less on the Z1C because the S has hardware buttons, the Z1C is smaller than the S though.

    Ooh, it looks good. I want one so bad. The screen looks really crisp too. Can't go wrong with crisp.

    Since unfortunately Sony insists in not using Gorilla Glass and uses those screen protectors...how's the screen protector? Can you tell if the Sony branding is printed on it as it is in the Z1 or engraved in the phone as in the Xperia T?

    And how's the IPS screen? People normally complain about "viewing angles" so I wonder if the IPS screen has improved on that.

    Also, can we put a quick toggle for the screen rotation in Sony's 4.3, thus sparing us the Settings -> Display -> etc routine?

    I havent noticed really, you can tell there is one on there if you look closely. I thought it was scratch resistant glass anyway as the Xperia S had a screen protector on and I removed it, didnt scratch at all.
    Also auto rotate toggle is available as a quick toggle.

    That is one gorgeous phone!!

    1) Does it have a notification LED? Is it compatible with LightFlow?

    2) Is it compatible with the TomTom GPS app, North American edition ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...omtom.uscanada )?

    This could very well be my next phone =)

    It does have a LED, about 1 - 2 cm strip along the top. Havent tried that app and the tom tom app appears when I search for it in the Play store. No I didn't just a blank screen so I removed it.

    Awesome! I did some digging. Sounds like Light Flow does indeed work: ( xda-developers - View Single Post - My brief first impressions )

    Very important. How long does it take to charge up. The iphone always has a big advantage(don't know why) with charge times. It was one of the main reasons I chose it over the htc one, that would take almost 4 hours. Lame.

    Because it has a small battery.

    The htc one's battery isn't 4 times larger, yet it would take that much longer. And to be clear I was looking for a time. My GS4 took around 2 hours. I charge my phone at lunch and it's nice to know if 30 minutes is going to make a dent or not.
