How long have you used your Z1

Hello,

 

Just had a thought of asking - how long their Z1 has lasted, assuming you are still using one. OR you may be an ex-Z1 user :-)

 

mine is 1.5 yrs now and gives a feeling battery now goes much quicker. lasts the day but used to be longer.

mine its over 2 years old and its quite fast, as for the battery it doesn't hold up charge as it use to but that's normal/expected.

Re: How long have you used your Z1

i think mine will last 2 yrs too..or more really

 

@Criteria  - can you actually get battery replaced ? via Sony or non-Sony

 

I dont think mine needs to be, just curious. 

 

I was never too much bothered changing to new models because its endless..I may just put some new skin with texture so make it less slippery to hold + and look different as well.

you can do it through Sony or you can DIY

its quite simple as long as you have the right tools, check the steps, and make sure to have a double sided adhesive to replace it.

Re: How long have you used your Z1

Hi 2 years and works as well as new hardware side.
Screen being always protected and used in a case with front flap means when naked still looks like new.
A pity it wil not be updated to Marshmallow, only reason I might update my daily driver and it will not be another Sony, now that the Z series is being discontinuted.
