    In relation to this bug. Was this widespread or is it luck of the unit? Starting to seriously worry about my preorder

    No idea, though Brendan Arndt from Three said he had the same issue on his unit. Seemed to be a software thing. And the Xperia Z suffered from a very similar problem at launch.

    I've been totally on the fence over the Z1 or the G2. I also live in the states so I can get the G2 now or wait to see availability for the Z1. So anyways, in comparison between the two, here's my questions..

    1) Camera: I've already heard you comment about the camera being one of the best, yet not what we'd completely hope for either. I get that. When it comes down to either the Z1 or the G2, would you say there's clearly a difference? Is the Z1 a full step ahead, or are they more or less on par with each other. Does one handle low light better then the other?

    2) Screen: If you had to pick one, which would it be? The Z1 has a ton of fancy names (triluminusing x-factoing braviaing whatever) but in the real world, what does it really mean when put up against that seemingly fantastic screen on the G2?

    Also, are the bezels really that bad?

    Hardware. (Optical Image Stabilization).
    Everything I've read says it is software, not hardware.

    No idea. ATT or Tmo would be your best bet.

    Not yet. Used it in the rain for a bit yesterday.

    Colors are up there with the HTC One (maybe a *little* less vivid but with darker blacks). Viewing angles are still subpar.

    Which app?
    Google music. Not tried it with Walkman as I've disabled it. Can try it tomorrow

    Hi Alex. I spent some time looking at Sony's propaganda on the Z1 and the only thing I recall that suggests any type of image stabilization is a fast shutter speed. Maybe I missed something.

    One question... Does the camera interface provide an option to save the photos to the removable microSD card instead of the built-in storage?

    it does not have OIS but has a software version of image stabilization. I'm finding it good so far and its not too big either

    I'm reviewing the Xperia Z1 for AC.

    You probably have questions about it.

    Here's the place to ask them.

    GO!
    hello I've got the Xperia tx... so how good is tx compared to the Xperia Z1?

    Looks like you're right. I could've sworn I saw OIS explicitly mentioned in the menus, but all I see is SteadyShot, which I guess is software.

    Is there third party app that can record 4k videos?
    Not that I'm aware of. The chip (Snap 800) should support it though, and the sensor certainly has more than enough pixels. There's a chance Sony could patch it in at a later date.

    No apps2sd.

    It's a huge upgrade from the TX.

    Yep. If you're buying from Clove it should be an unlocked Euro version.

    Congrats in the first place.
    Im planning to buy one for myself.
    So, how much would you rate it on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest.

    Thanks for the reply. Just tried that with both Google music and Sony Walkman. Might have to do a factory reset and if that doesn't work might have a faulty phone :-(

    Hi Alex!

    Just wondering about the Camera features, other than it's Exmor R sensor,
    what other features does the Camera App have?

    I know it has the "takes pictures 1 sec before and 1sec after you click" that allows you to select which one is the perfect shot.
    Is that at 8 mpixels only?

    Does it have the HTC One's Zoe feature, where you can select the Face of one of the subjects, and "dial back" time on that face only?
    Or do we just get to choose from one of the 60+ pictures that were taken during those 2 secs.

    And is the camera good for photographing "fast action"?
    Like a fitness class?
    or a dance competition?
    Is the "take 2 seconds of pics" feature able to "Freeze" action in one of the frames? Or are all the frames just blurs because of the subject movement.

    So want to like this camera/smartphone.

    Thank you soooo much for taking the time to answer our burning questions!

    Hi Alex,

    Any word on Sony releasing a LTE TDD 2300Mhz version (compatible with upgraded 4G here in Australia)?

    Hi I can confirm that the latest firmware update. 534 fixes the headphone bug. Only issue is the UK unlocked Low models haven't received a single update!

    How is the battery life ?

    Have you tested to see how waterproof and scratch resistant it is ?

    I've got a Z1 and its battery lasted about 1 day 1 hour.. Its still new and only has done a second charge so its not fully optimised yet. I had about 3 hours screen time but having 25% of you battery being eaten up by Google Services is not nice.. Anyone knows the solution for that?
