    still love my xperia z1 very much
    the only reason i upgraded from xperia z to z1
    was battery, camera, earphones jack opening, better speaker and the flaps
    while the new z series I dont see the need yet upgrade
    Ps: I miss the power button on the xperia Z though

    I’m happy with my Z1 and all I want is the double tap to wake feature because where the power button is, is an awkward place

    doesn’t look good. and blue wallpaper/background is no more attractive.

    water resistant means, surely I can think of damage and replacement with 80% if I visit service center.

    and off course, price will hit the sky.
