Rated 1 out of 5 by SamF Extremely disappointed with SONY
I received this phone two weeks ago, for the powerful processor and most importantly, the water resistance. The phone is very fast, took decent photos, and had a great screen. Two days ago, when I put my Z1 in a basin full of water (after CAREFULLY checking the port flaps), the phone stopped working, the screen went black, and wouldn't switch on. I have tried putting it in rice, various button combinations, using Sony's repair software, letting it air, but nothing would revive the phone. If its connected to usb or to the dock, it will vibrate 3 times, pause, vibrate 3 times, and continuously do this nonstop. I have NOT contacted Sony to service this phone, because I know (from what HUNDREDS of people have posted online about this exact issue) that I will have to pay a fortune in postage by mailing it to Ontario, only to be told it is my fault, and that it will cost me the majority of the phone's price for repair. If you are looking to buy the Z, Z1, Z1 compact, Z2, Z3, or any waterproof Xperia phone, DON'T!!! You will be very sad when this happens to you and Sony Service will not help. Now, I am stuck with a vibrating paperweight that costs more than my computer, which is extremely inconvenient for me, because not only do I not have a phone to use, I might have to dish out another 450 dollars of my hard-earned money to buy another smartphone. Sony, please stop selling products with misleading information about water resistance, or at least stand by your advertisements, and support your unhappy customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrJoltz Very Good
The phone itself is a magnificent piece of hardware but some improvements are needed in the software as the camera needs slight updates on the digital processing side and the screen lacks scratch resistance.
Also, take note of the lack of ear-buds to come with the phone.
Great screen, waterproof, great battery. All I could ask for a premium smartphone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shiasisan Worth waiting for
I finally upgraded my phone after three years. I have been searching for phones that could replace my old Xperia Play, but I didn't find anything that could match my taste. A lot of my friends had Samsung, HTC or Iphone but I wanted to stick to Android as much as possible. Until this one showed up. It is very fast and responsive. It has a premium feel to it that I didn't really find in ANY of the Samsung Android line. Camera is awesome! Overall it is an incredible phone. Next in line is one of the camera that you can attach to this phone. lol

I'm stunned;this is by far the best phone I have ever seen! It is beautiful and very powerful (bit too big though, but who cares!).
