Meet Xperia Z1

Re: Meet Xperia Z1

I am the owner of a Xperia SP

But I also love Xperia Z1.
I think Sony's weak point is software
For example, calendar and email programs are trivial compared to Samsung's
Also Battery consumption that Sony did not optimize
Overall I expected from Sony, especially in software, is much higher

Re: Meet Xperia Z1

Can someone share a good tutorial for Z1 camera usage? I'd be grateful for that.


I know that if you don't make the right settings pictures won't get that good. I have a little experience and I found out that with the right WB and Exposure you can make great photos. But, I'm losing time to find the right setting for the right scene on manual mode.

New Xperia Z1 update

I was exchanging info (pictures, videos) between the cel phone and my computer

In the Sony PC Companion apeared a message "Update cel/phone"

I updated it

followed the steps

and then the update fell down

and now my cell phone can not turn on

when i tried to turn it on it says "The update failed, please be sure the phone and the computer are connected"


Now, each time I tried to turn my cell phone on the same legend apears.


What should I do?

Re: Meet Xperia Z1

Indeed it is a phone with great potential, it only needs firmware to support it. 4.2.2 works great for me now and with all the trouble I read about the latest 4.3 I think I will keep the 4.2.2. Why break an awesome phone.

Re: Meet Xperia Z1

Estoy satisfecho con el producto, pero lamentablemente la cámara no es lo que esperaba, considerando el precio. Es urgente que arreglen el software para poder aprovechar al máximo la tecnología de la cámara. El Z1 lo sigo disfrutando, pero realicen ese cambio para poder decir que es el mejor smartphone :-). Gracias por la atención.
