The Xperia Z1 packs a lot of features and Sony has taken strides in the right direction, but before I mention those. there are some aspects to the device that could be improved. First of the display, though being 1080p, still didn’t portray the level of brightness you would expect from.  the Sony added entertainment software can be a bit cumbersome in setting up to use any of their services

What you get her is a device that has great LTE and 4G support, stellar battery life and everything packed in to give you a solid smartphone experience.
