No regrets so far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony Xperia Z1 UK Sim Free Smartphone - Black (Electronics)
I have been using an iphone 3GS for the last few years, and have been quite happy with it. I decided to replace it for a number of reasons, so did a lot of research and agonised over what to buy, after all when buying outright whatever you choose requires parting with a hefty lump of wedge.
I decided on the Xperia Z over other android phones for a number of reasons.
1) Its waterproof. I use my phone as a sat nav on my motorbike, so this is a great feature for me.
2) Expandable memory. 16Gb is not enough for me, my music collection alone approaches that.
3) Good camera
4) Good battery life (only other phone I could find with a 3000mAh battery was the LG G2)
I have had the phone a few days now and so far I am not at all disappointed with my choice. The phone simply flies, launching maps, sat nav, web pages etc in fractions of a second. It's build quality seems very good (but I haven't dropped it yet !) I've taken a few photos and they have been great, and the battery has lasted me all day with almost constant use (since I can't stop playing with it)
It is quite big, there are other slightly smaller phones with a 5inch display, but we are talking a few mm here. I doubt I could type with it one handed due to its size, and fear of dropping it, but really that's about the only negative and really the price you pay for a 5 inch display I guess.
So if you are thinking of buying a new android phone, you could do a lot worse than choose this.

Does this phone work all over Europe? - I am considering to buy it and I'm from Denmark. Just want to know if I am able to use it with my SIM card.

Hi, useful review. I'm considering this phone for the same reason (waterproof on motorcycle). What case/holder do you use to mount it to your bike?

Hi. Look at buybits.com. they have a dedicated holder for the Z1 with a selection of mounts. They also have a shop on amazon. The one I use is sku 18608.
