Expert Review

27 February 2015
  • Summary: As has become almost customary, the 3000 mAh battery is permanently installed in the device. According to Samsung, this allows for thinner designs, though the manufacturer regularly showed that this is not necessarily always true.
  • Pros: best gaming performance, very good workmanship, elegant look, dust and water proof (IP55/58), decent camera results, fancy UI with reasonable adjustments, microSD slot, NFC, LTE, Miracast
  • Cons: camera (poor low-light performance, switches off at high temperature), display contrast, significantly enlarged case and increased weight, (no IR blaster)

Review Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Smartphone

14 February 2014
  • Summary: Turning big into small. Already the name makes its obvious: The Z1 Compact is the handier version of Sony's Xperia Z1 flagship. These "Mini" editions are presently quite common, but the Z1 is an exception because most of the hardware is the same as used in the larger version.
  • Pros: High performance, Bright screen, Outstanding battery runtime, Temperature development, Picture quality, IP certification, The 4.3-inch screen is exceptionally bright, has a low black level, and consequently an above-average high contrast - great job, Sony.
  • Cons: Purchase price, Scratch sensitive back, Speaker quality, The purchase price is still a bit steep. Larger models are available for a bit less money, and the powerful Nexus 5 is, for example, considerably more affordable.

Sony Xperia Z1S Review

14 January 2014
  • Conclusion: We’re happy to see Sony’s Z1 make it to a U.S. carrier in the form of the Z1S, especially since Sony saw fit to double the internal memory (16GB is pretty cramped for a modern high-end smartphone).
  • Pros: Impressive camera, especially in low light, Waterproof, Slim, stylish design, Nice screen
  • Cons: Poorly placed speaker, Underwater camera ability seems niche, Splashing water activates touchscreen, Design attracts fingerprints and smudges

Sony Xperia Z1s (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 January 2014
  • Summary: If you want a handset with Snapdragon 800 power, you're better off picking up the LG G2, which has a better screen and even longer endurance. Overall, the Xperia Z1s is a viable option for those who want a fully waterproof design -- and we appreciate that Sony has brought a lot of its own technology...
