looks an awesome device with great battery life... i cant believe, sony being one of the premium brand in tv/display & audio, it took them this long to fix their smartphone display... i had the previous flagship before the Z (i cant even remember the name), screen was washed-out and battery sucked, and i traded the phone a few days afterwards.... so now its for me to decide between this or htc butterfly s...

When Is this hitting the US market? Otherwise I might need to preorder unlocked model, will be missing LTE, but I could deal with it for this awesome phone, something to keep in mind, while I wait for it to come out.

After watching the unveiling, nothing else matters to me anymore. Xperia Z1, you'll be mine :)

I heard the display suffers the same issues as the Z, viewing angles are terrible and camera from some testers seem kinda off, now it might be preproduction, we will have to see when it hit the markets for comparisons with their review units.
