Our Sony Xperia Z1 preview is already posted, and most of you have probably read through it already. As we've stated in the preview, the Xperia Z1 is a promising smartphone with cool design and capabilities, although not necessarily groundbreaking...

Is the speaker of the Z1 better than the Z and ZL?

Also PA, you might wanna change the default home screen wallpaper because many people will think that the display is horrible. It is actually the wallpaper that made it look look like it. What was Sony thinking?

1. Battery performance.
2. Camera performance and comparison (both still and video.)
3. Besides all the improvements of the display I would like to know how good the outside visibility is and how the black levels are.

That's the only things I want to know more on before I decide which device to get.

Oh, and is there any confirmed news on a Android 4.3 release window for this phone? There's a couple features from it that I would appreciate.

And I completely agree with the whole background- change it to something else. I've seen several others and they look incredible on the display.

No sadly. On the Xperia blog that's one of the things a lot of hard core SONY fans wish "they could change" about the phone.

How does the Z1 feel in the hand in terms of size, in comparison to the LG G2, HTC One, Galaxy S4, and Xperia Z?
Hows the battery life and camera?
How good/easy/quick are Sony's camera attachments?

Do you think this phone or those like it have the ability to catch on with consumers?

Can you post photos of the phone with the red autumn leave themes?
And can you comment on the firmware version?
The latest version ends with .523 btw.

It matters to me for things you can't store on an SD card like Google Play Music.

1. do you have the latest firmware?
2. is your unit similar to the retail unit?
3. are you willing to do a drop test?
4. how long does the battery last?
5. can you do samples of HHT or hand-held twilight mode.
6. THIS IS RATHER unusual. why are you doing this? you don't do this when you do other reviews? what's so special that you're giving the z1 some special treatment?

What is battery life if usage is mainly web browsing, messaging and social media (not video watching)? How fast will gps usage drain battery?

I believe Sony Xperia Z1 is having the best mobile camera in it.
So, I'm more looking for following queries.

Sony Xperia Z1 : Questions/Queries

1. How is the overall battery life considering heavy use of browsing, optimum WiFi & Data use ??
2. How fast the battery can charge (considering the Qualcomm Quickcharge 2.0) ??
3. Does this phone has Sony's exclusive Clear Bass, xLoud and Clear Audio technologies ??
4. How is the User Interface ?? is it light (like pure Android) or heavy (with extra tech goodies) ??
