How To Buy
 
 

Things to Consider

Though the Sony Xperia Z1 is a modern smartphone, everyone has different preferences when it comes to what they want from a smartphone.  With that in mind, here are the top things we believe you should be aware of before buying the Sony Xperia Z1:

  • The glass body of the phone is prone to cracking and scratching if dropped, put in a pocket with metal coins or keys, or handled roughly. We therefore recommend you invest in a case and screen protector (see accessories)
  • It is one of the few smartphones that is actually water resistant (to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes)
  • The Sony Xperia Z1 uses a micro-SIM
