When Sony sells you a smartphone for $600, it’s making a promise. Actually, it makes a whole bunch of them: Power, beauty, waterproof protection, and everyday utility. Can this slab of metal and glass do it all?

To find out, we bought a retail unit and used it for several weeks. This is not a review unit sent by Sony, but one that we paid for in full — in other words, we don’t “owe” anyone a positive review, and this is our truly unbiased take on the Sony Xperia Z1.

Playing The Specs Game

sony xperia z1 review

Sony isn’t shy about touting the numbers here. With a Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2 gigabytes of RAM, an Adreno 330 GPU, and a 441 ppi 5-inch full-HD screen, the Xperia Z1 is a lot of phone. This is as high-end as Android gets circa early 2014, and it handled anything I threw at it with aplomb. Its glass casing packs a 3000 mAh battery that carries it through a full day’s use with ease.

Just for the sake of comparison, these are better specifications than what you’d get with the original Samsung Galaxy S4 (I9505), and are roughly on par with the refreshed S4 (I9506) and the LG Nexus 5 (read our review Google Nexus 5 Review and Giveaway Google Nexus 5 Review and Giveaway Approximately a year after Google released the Nexus 4, the company behind Android has come out with its successor -- the Nexus 5. Read More ), two phones that also ship with the Snapdragon 800 and Adreno 330.

If I hadn’t mentioned the camera so far, that’s because it merits a section of its own: The Xperia Z1 ships with a 20-megapixel rear shooter that uses a sensor as large as the ones on many compact cameras. When I reviewed the Xperia Z Sony Xperia Z Review and Giveaway Sony Xperia Z Review and Giveaway This post is about a surprise; it's about a comeback, and about how a determined company can listen, learn, and make something beautiful once again. It's about the Sony Xperia Z, a premium, powerful, and... Read More , I found that the camera was not exactly astounding, and the Xperia Z1 seeks to atone for its older sibling’s shortcomings.

The Camera

Let me put it this way: The Xperia Z1’s camera works. I am not just talking about image quality, which is on par with what I’d expect from a full fledged point-and-shoot, and is far better than any smartphone I’ve previously owned. It’s also the fact that the Z1 has a dedicated camera button, and is fast and responsive.

sony xperia z1 review

As I noted in my QX100 Smart Lens review Sony DSC-QX100 Smartphone Attachable Lens Review and Giveaway Sony DSC-QX100 Smartphone Attachable Lens Review and Giveaway This is $498 camera... without a viewfinder or a screen. And we're giving it away! Read More , photography is as much about spontaneity and capturing the moment as it is about raw image quality. The Xperia Z1’s camera button wakes it up from sleep mode and puts you into the built-in camera app within about 3 seconds, or as long as it takes you to pull the phone out of your pocket and frame a shot.

Once you’ve composed your shot, the camera works as you’d expect it to: A half-press on the shutter button locks focus and exposure, and a full press captures an image. This also means you can recompose your image, just like with a “real” camera. One of the few software annoyances on the Xperia Z1 is that when quick-launching the camera like this, it always loads with Sony’s Superior Auto mode. This ambitious capture mode is supposed to auto-detect the current scene and load the appropriate preset (say, Sports, or Twilight Portrait). In reality, it doesn’t work as well as simply switching to Manual mode and dialing in your own settings. I found myself switching to Manual mode every time after I quick-launched the camera — something that definitely hampered speed and ease of use.

sony xperia z1 smartphone review

While we’re on the subject of camera software annoyances, there is no easy way to re-bind the camera button so that it launches a different camera app: You can only quick-launch Sony’s own camera, despite the fact that you may get better shots out of an app like Camera FV-5 Camera FV-5 Review and Screenshot Tour: A Shutterbug's Android Dream Camera FV-5 Review and Screenshot Tour: A Shutterbug's Android Dream Pick the right camera app, and you end up with what's effectively a complete point-and-shoot camera replacement in your pocket. Read More .

Sony went out of its way to make this feel like a “real” camera, and for the most part, it works. You get multiple modes, image stabilization, ISO and metering control, and much more.

The software takes advantage of the phone’s beastly specs to offer a mode called “Timeshift burst.” Meant for capturing action shots, this mode lets you press the shutter button and then flick back and forth between 30 different frames of that moment to get the exact shot you want. The interface works well and is very responsive and smooth to use. Unfortunately, even after you pick the image you wanted, all burst images are saved onto your device. I woke up one morning to find no less than 830 images of splashing waves auto-uploaded to my Google+ account.

Look and Feel: Don’t Let The Glass Back Fool You

Side by side, the Xperia Z1 is barely distinguishable from the $449.99 Xperia Z. There’s one extra hardware button for the camera, but other than that, it’s the same aesthetic: Sparse slabs with glass backs and a power button that’s reminiscent of the crown on an analog watch.

The Xperia Z atop of the Z1, showing how similar the power buttons are.

One impressive touch for the Xperia Z1 is that the headphone jack is actually open. This is not a big deal on most phones, only the Z1 is actually waterproof: You can submerge it in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes, and it’ll keep working just fine. All other ports on the device are protected behind rubberized flaps, just like on the Z.

Another key difference from the Xperia Z is the placement and the size of the speaker: The Z’s speaker was one of the device’s weakest points, and the Z1 makes up for it with a larger, louder speaker. Mind you, it’s still not superb: It turns out making a waterproof speaker that sounds great is not an easy task.

sony xperia z1 review

Finally, a decidedly low-tech feature that still merits mention: The Z1 has a lanyard hook. Yup, it’s just a little hole in the corner of the metal chassis, but it means you can loop in a lanyard and keep the phone physically attached to your wrist. That’s a great way to make sure it doesn’t fall out of your hand when you’re running to make the bus, and just keeps it a bit safer in general: Some smartphone thieves just snatch the phone out of your hand when you’re mid-call, and this is one feature that makes it harder for them.

The Software

Good news on the software front: Sony did not utterly ruin Android. Yes, the phone does run a customized version of Android, but it’s actually fine, for the most part.

z1-screens

Instead of Android’s Quick Settings panel, you get quick toggles at the top of the pull-down notification menu. The Recent Tasks screens has also been customized, letting you launch Sony’s Small Apps. These are basically what they sound like: Miniaturized versions of apps that float over your other activities, letting you quickly pull up a calculator when you’re in the middle of something else.

z1-smallaps-1

The included launcher is one of the most impressive parts of Sony’s custom interface, featuring unique animations and a UI that lets you uninstall multiple apps at once (something even Nova doesn’t let you do). It wasn’t enough to get me to ditch Nova, but it did offer a genuinely useful experience.

Performance and Battery Life

It’s a beast. There’s no other way to say this: The Xperia Z1 outperforms every other Android device I’ve tested to date, hitting Antutu scores as high as 32,000 and 35,000 with ease. Just for the sake of comparison, that’s higher than you could expect to get with the Galaxy S4, or even with the Note 3 – and that’s with no overclocking or any software tweaks whatsoever, merely running Sony’s stock firmware. Antutu’s bar chart doesn’t lie:

z1-benchmark-1

It’s not just about the benchmarks, though: Demanding games like Asphalt 8: Airborne are silky-smooth, and navigating around Android itself is a lag-free, snappy experience. Two gigabytes of RAM means Android has lots of room for suspending apps in the background, making multitasking quick and easy. I did manage to get the phone to stutter a little bit in prolonged gaming sessions, mainly due to the CPU heating up and automatically throttling back. This is an issue you’ll come across with almost any modern smartphone – but then again, if you’re really serious about keeping your Z1 from overheating, you can always dip it in some water.

The lack of a user-replaceable battery is one of the few things I dislike about the phone, much like its predecessor. But while the Z had a relatively paltry 2330 mAh battery, the Z1’s 3000 mAh cell offers noticeably more power. Sony also built in a power-saving Stamina mode into its ROM, which lets you significantly extend the phone’s battery life by shutting down just about everything while the screen is off. Extended screen-on time will still drain the battery (naturally), but Stamina mode does mean you may be able to get through 2-3 days of conservative use (brief email/text sessions) without charging.

Overall Impressions

The Sony Xperia Z1 looks, feels, and costs like a premium device. This phone has “flagship” written all over it, and represents Sony’s most ambitious smartphone effort to date, pulling together its expertise in camera hardware, ruggedized devices, and industrial design. The fact that it so closely resembles the Xperia Z shows that Sony has found its stride, and managed to produce a device that gained both accolades from reviewers and traction in the marketplace.

sony xperia z1 smartphone review

If you love Android, are sick of Samsung’s TouchWiz, and want a camera that’s more than a match for the iPhone 5S’s one, the Sony Xperia Z1 is the device for you.

Our verdict of the Sony Xperia Z1:
Buy it.

    I would probably wait for the iPhone 6. Was an extremely early adopter of Android but it was a nightmare during those two years. Went to Apple and just love how there's rarely ever a problem. I revisited 4.2 but didn't like the feel or the lack of standards in the app store.
    Though I have to say, the Z1 is very, very tempting.

I don't no how u keep doing it. Like I said, now its waterproof and if it had hands it could even do the dishes, way to cool. Thanks for coming up with new and better phones all the time.

    This is a very confusing question, there are many feature phones out there. However, given $600 my first preference would be the Note 3, it has the added advantage of removable back i.e replaceable battery and well there are bunch of other features which every one is aware of and also know that this may not be the case with many other competitors out there. Second and third, hmm.......not sure will think about it when I actually have that much money ;)

  191. Alex
    January 16, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    I'd buy a Nexus 5 unlocked $350, a Moto G for my brother VZW prepaid $99 and probably use the leftover money to waterproof my GS4 and new Nexus5 at liquipel.com $60ea~$120. Still have $10 leftover, but taxes would eat that and then some. :(
    Lesson learned, don't give me money and ask what I'll do with it, not what you'd expect.

  192. chauncey
    January 16, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    I went into tmobilea few weeks back to pay the bill and I stopped to drool over the z1. I would totally pay 600$ for it (if I had that to spend). I have an issue with getting phones wet so this would be awesome!

  193. Diana Cote
    January 16, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    Give $600 to buy a smart phone, it would have to be this one. It fits my needs, has an AWESOME built in camera, multi-touch screen, a very impressive battery life, and the fact that it has expandable memory up to 64gigs is also something that peaks my interest. Also, the month-to-month plans for this phone really isn't that bad considering.
    When it's all said and done, this phone meets just about all of my needs. An excellent piece of technology for a not-so-unreasonable price.

    January 15, 2014 at 6:41 am

    I love to have a great camera & good specs are required for overall efficiency & ease of use, esp when relaxing with a game. The Z1 definitely hits the spot but I would consider the Z1s or the Z1 compact also.

    Are this giveaways (for electronics) only for some countries in europe and usa, or for the entire word? Sorry for the question, but so far no luck with electronics. I've got luck only with programs on all the giveaways by MUO.

    Were Jolla to sell a variant of their phone with North American 3G frequencies, I'd buy that. Since they don't, I'd probably buy my wife an iPhone 4S or 5 and myself a Moto G or BlackBerry Z10.

    The Sony Xperia Z1. It just looks a lot nicer than all the other phones. Sure, it might not be as fast as an S4, but the premium feel makes up for it. Plus, it's waterproof.

  338. Alan Huo

    I've been eyeing the Sony phones for awhile and they seem to have a wonderful premium feel combined with some very specific features. For one, even without it being a phone, you are buying a very decent waterproof camera, which is quite amazing when you combine it with all of the high end android specs. I'd buy the Z1 with $600.

  356. John Ruzbarsky
    January 14, 2014 at 1:13 am

    I would give the Z1 a shot .

  357. Brandon Bethea

  358. Alan

  366. professandobey
    January 13, 2014 at 9:40 pm

    If I could keep the remainder of the $600 to use on things like accessories, I would probably buy a Moto X (like I did in December), perhaps with a Bamboo back. However, if it is use it is or lose it, the Xperia Z1 would definitely be at the top of my list.

  367. Travis Faulkner
    January 13, 2014 at 9:23 pm

    I would really like to get the HTC One google edition but after reading this review I need a better camera in a smart phone and the Z1 would stand up while Im standing out in a tornado which is what claimed the life of my first android the OG Droid. Now that thing had a premium feel

    Any Android phone, more than likely it would be the Galaxy S4 Active or the Sony Xperia Z1. I had the Xperia play at one point and it was a decent device, I would be more than willing to try out the Z1.

  374. Michelle
    January 13, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    I'd probably buy the Sony one, but I can't ever imagine spending that kind of money on a phone.

    I have had good luck with Sony in the past, 90% of the electronics in my home are Sony, so I would strongly consider the Sony Xperia Z1. I love the water proof aspect and the camera section.

    I have been holding out for exclusively QWERTY slide-out keyboards, but it might be time to make the move. This screen seems big enough that typing on it would not be as clumsy as with many touch screens.

    Actually, at the moment there is no device i'd say "This is it", so I think i'd wait until something great like PhoneBloks or the Ubuntu Phone comes out.
    If i had to choose now, I think the Nexus 5 is what I do like most, even if it's "a bit" cheaper.

    January 13, 2014 at 1:46 pm

    Given $600, which smartphone would you buy?
    A Sony Xperia Z1 compact. Great performance and still fits in your pocket!

  423. Mike S.
    January 13, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    The Z1 is definitely in the running in terms of what I would buy.

  424. Scott
    January 13, 2014 at 1:41 pm

    This one of course, but I don't need to because this one is free.

  425. Ellie B

  448. Mike
    January 13, 2014 at 7:39 am

    Given $600, I'd buy a cheap prepaid with 12 months of service... currently my device cost $100 and I pay $25/mo... thats $400 for an entire year of service. Sure would be nice to have a premium phone though. Sigh.

  449. Alawishis
    January 13, 2014 at 7:28 am

    It's a lot of money, but have to say this would be in the running if I was spending that kind of money on a phone.

  450. Amanda Simpson
    January 13, 2014 at 7:16 am

    Totally Z1

  451. Istin P

    Sony Xperia Z1 :)

  452. Dennis B
    January 13, 2014 at 7:13 am

    Two questions, how is the reception on the phone and how heavy is it. I do landscaping so the phone gets wet and dropped occasionally, will it stand up to mild abuse?

    Interesting thing I notice is that it seems to be or becoming a button musher console. What is your opinion on that.

    Interesting review, thank you.

  453. Shannon
    January 13, 2014 at 6:21 am

    For $600 it have to be waterproof so the Z1 for sure

  454. Ryan L
    January 13, 2014 at 6:12 am

  455. Rajeeb Tamrakar

  460. Diane
    January 13, 2014 at 3:23 am

    I'd consider any one of the larger phones, this one included, but my boyfriend needs a phone and he would really love the Galaxy Mega.. but if I win this phone he would love it too.

  461. Richard Bonifacio
    January 13, 2014 at 3:06 am

    I'd buy the z1.

  462. Francis S
    January 13, 2014 at 2:53 am

    For now would have to be the Galaxy Note 3. The pen is worth it.

  463. Torvic T
    January 13, 2014 at 2:51 am

    If I have a $600, I will buy this phone. Galaxy Note 3 is too big for me that I will get tablet for an alternative.

  464. Mia Dentice Carey
    January 13, 2014 at 2:29 am

  467. Anne
    January 13, 2014 at 2:03 am

    The Z1 looks like an awesome phone! Is it too much phone for my first cell phone? Nope, don't think so. It may be what I've been waiting for.

  505. Insiya H
    January 12, 2014 at 5:19 pm

  523. Kathryn

  530. Nicole Elkins

    After reading the full review and watching the video, I would definitely say I'm sold on the Sony Xperia Z1.

  533. Nero T
    January 12, 2014 at 9:56 am

    So many choices if I had $600: I'd choose Z1 for camera, or the Note 3, or the LG G2 for design, or maybe the Nexus 5.

  534. Urko
    January 12, 2014 at 9:27 am

  543. Roy D

    1st...I have alot of Sony products; have for years. I am also an anti iphone (ianything) person.....So the best Sony cell phone; Z1.

  548. Johnna Rhodus
    January 12, 2014 at 5:43 am

    HTC One or Galaxy S4!

  551. Phillip
    January 12, 2014 at 5:03 am

    Can I buy a Moto G and keep the extra? if not then a Sony Xperia Z1.

  552. Nayan Patel
    January 12, 2014 at 3:36 am

    Depends on where I am getting the phone from, which will determine the cost. So, I can't raelly answer this question

  553. Darren
    January 12, 2014 at 3:03 am

    I'd definitely give this Xperia a try, based on the features, the specs, and the waterproofing. I'd be dying to test all that phone offers out! To be honest, I've never really had an android phone, so I think I'd be pretty excited to get any Android phone, but winning this one would definitely make my day!

  554. Dan
    January 12, 2014 at 2:31 am

    Thats actually a good deal for 600. Better then the S4

  555. Shiva

  558. lee
    January 12, 2014 at 2:08 am

    I like the Xperia Z1, but I would buy an iPhone 5S,

  559. Catherine M
    January 12, 2014 at 1:44 am

    Z1 for sure ONCE they make the battery user replaceable - that is important to me.

  560. Luke Wojick
    January 12, 2014 at 1:17 am

    The Nexus 5 most likely or the S4 (with the gear of course) as a close second

  561. Ismael R
    January 12, 2014 at 1:15 am

    I'm a big fan of the the Galaxy Note series, so if given the cash, that'll be were it likely goes. Then again...things can change.

  562. Gabriel Parobiec
    January 12, 2014 at 12:48 am

    I would definitely buy the the z1. If only I had the money which is an issue. Im a massive Sony fan and I just dont see myself with me owning anything but Sony. Another thing to mention is that I love the fact its android and its down to the user to control the system which is something I love, not where the system controls the user like Iphone.

  563. Beh H
    January 12, 2014 at 12:43 am

    Sony Xperia Z1!!

  564. Adrian

    z1

  566. Eric
    January 12, 2014 at 12:10 am

    I'd buy the Z1, seems like a nice device. Ha ha to anyone who'd buy an iFruit, your phone is lame.

  567. Ryan F
    January 11, 2014 at 11:34 pm

    The waterproof factor is pretty awesome, but I think I would still have to go with iPhone 5s.

  568. Angela
    January 11, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    i've only had iPhones but i am super open to an android phone.

  569. Cj N

    Nexus 5

  570. Nicholas Green
    January 11, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    Definitely would not buy an iPhone. The Xperia looks like a good choice.

  571. Tom W
    January 11, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    With $600, I would probably go with the Z1. The camera alone looks amazing and, if you add on all of the other features, it seems worth the pricetag.

  575. Gabriel Rossi
    January 11, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    I like the Xperia Z1, but I would buy an iPhone 5S, or, since I've already have the 5, I would buy the Galaxy Note 3 ;)

  576. Boris
    January 11, 2014 at 10:17 pm

  577. HeberJames

  578. Aaron Flexer
    January 11, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    Tough question. The Nexus 5, the Z1, or the Galaxy Note 3.

  579. Robert S
    January 11, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    Note 3

  580. Krzysztof B
    January 11, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    I have no idea, I would have a big problem to choose a phone. Probably i would choose something smaller than Z1.

  581. james
    January 11, 2014 at 9:17 pm

  582. Cass S
    January 11, 2014 at 9:13 pm

    Would have to go with the Sony Xperia Z1 if I had a choice.

  589. P.f. B
    January 11, 2014 at 7:54 pm

    The Z1's camera and waterproofing earn it my pick.

  590. Raghad

  593. Carol O
    January 11, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I like the new Sony smart phone that was reviewed, I have an old basic Samsung, it is not a smart phone!! Have not tried any other phone but did like the review for this one.

  594. Marcelo

  595. Stephen D

  596. Dave
    January 11, 2014 at 6:36 pm

    The Sony xperia z1 is the ultimate Smartphone, being durable, strong and also makes a great camera. This has to be the only phone for me!

  597. Theo C
    January 11, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    With $600, any phone with a micro SD slot, an unlocked bootloader and top of the line processor.

  598. Kendall
    January 11, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    Z1 would be awesome!

  599. Christine Caple

  601. Jonathan H
    January 11, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    I'd probably buy the G2, though the Z1 has reached up into probably second or third place.

  602. Adewale Ajibade

  605. Sachin G
    January 11, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    I was thinking HTC One Max, but after viewing the review video I'd go with the Real beast Xperia Z1 or the Z1 ultra.

  606. Marc G
    January 11, 2014 at 5:04 pm

    If I was given $600 to buy a phone. I would DEFINITELY buy the Sony xperia Z1

  607. Nikki C

  611. Hersh
    January 11, 2014 at 4:40 pm

  632. Valencia
    January 11, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    After watching the video, the Xperia is intriguing but I am also a diehard fan of the Nokia Lumia so that would be my first choice.

  633. Ron
    January 11, 2014 at 2:09 pm

    Sony Xperia Z1 or a Nexus.

  634. Stacey

  635. Al
    January 11, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    Notice there was no mention of the Lumia 1020 in this review, in almost every review I have read the 1020's camera capabilities decimated the competition.

  636. Elisabetta S
    January 11, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    For 600, Nexus or Xperia.

    To the people at Makeuseof: Would you please consider using some other method that will not force us readers to disable ad-blockers and other similar extensions whenever we wish to participate in a giveaway? It is a little bothersome to have to do that and then undo it time and time again.
