Sony Xperia Z1

4 October 2014
  • Summary: The Xperia Z was already a cracking phone, and Sony has only improved it with the Z1. Top-notch build quality combined with high-end specs make for a brilliant device that can keep up with the Galaxy S4s and iPhones of this world, and look good doing it too. Some people will find a 5-inch phone too big for them, but once you're used to the full HD quality that the Z1 provides, you'll never want anything smaller again.

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1s Review

4 March 2014
  • Summary: In the Xperia Z1s, Sony has given T-Mobile a well-rounded smartphone that does a lot of things well. The Xperia Z1s is a powerful smartphone that doesn’t skimp on features and attempts to be a jack of all trade with an elegant waterproof body, a capable 20-megapixel camera, and powerful guts to keep the whole thing running. Generally speaking, manufacturers often choose between function or form, and the Xperia Z1s has it all.

  • Summary: While the battle of the LG and Sony flagships was quite interesting, how do the shrunken down versions of those smartphones compare? Here’s a quick look at the LG G2 Mini vs Sony Xperia Z1 Compact! Both the LG G2 Mini and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact draw heavily from the design language of their larger siblings. They are, in fact, almost identical, and only shrunken all around.

Sony Xperia Z1S Android Smartphone Review

16 February 2014
  • Conclusion: It took Sony a few tries to make a flagship Android smartphone that truly has flagship specs, but they've managed nicely with the Sony Xperia Z1S and Z1. The Xperia Z1S has the fastest CPU currently available, all the wireless bells and whistles including WiFi 802.11ac with WiFi calling and mobile hotspot, fast LTE 4G and NFC.

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 (T-Mobile): Big Magenta gets a bit of style

23 January 2014
  • Conclusion: The Sony Xperia Z1S is everything that you wanted in a phone...four months ago. Judged against every flagship smartphone released last year, the Xperia Z1S can hold its own in every area except the display. The problem is that the phone arrives at the tail end of the product cycle and will soon be replaced by something newer and better, including a new product from Sony that is already rumored to be more desirable. So why should anyone buy this phone?

T-Mobile Sony Xperia Z1S Review

21 January 2014
  • Conclusion: There’s little to dislike about the Sony Xperia Z1S. If you enjoyed everything about the Xperia Z, this device is simply a boost in all the right places. This device feels as high-end as a smartphone of this size has felt in our hands, and everything from user interface speed to playing games to shooting photos and video has turned up rather well-done. What we’re seeing here, again, is Sony taking a great device in the Xperia Z and making it even better.

Sony Xperia Z1s (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
19 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Sony brings some welcome innovation to Android camera phones with the Xperia Z1s, a potent, waterproof model that nonetheless falls just short of greatness.
  • Pros: Fast. Sleek styling. Waterproof. Extra-large battery. Fun camera apps.
  • Cons: Poor call quality. Display isn't particularly vivid. A bit large and heavy. Uneven camera performance.

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). We also think the Xperia line’s boxy design looks good, and is far more comfortable to hold in a device this size than with the similarly styled, though much larger Z Ultra.
  • 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: The Xperia Z1s is a smartphone that can take a dip without calling it quits. We also like the fast performance and excellent battery life, as well as the fun camera apps and PlayStation app. Unfortunately, the Z1s' narrow viewing angles and lackluster camera are disappointing for a flagship smartphone.
