Xperia Z1 looks stunning in purple

Xperia Z1 Purple_10In our recent poll, asking you which Sony Xperia Z1 colour was your favourite, purple came in last place with 19% of the vote. This is not surprising as black (47%) and white (34%) are always going to appeal to the mainstream more. However, if you check out the pictures below it may just change your mind. The two tone effect of the purple sides and aluminium edges look fantastic. Check out the pictures below and let’s start seeing some more love for purple phones.

    I still like white the best. :)

  • DrKrFfXx

    I don’t like the color of the frame.

  • Hakan Mutlu

    The reason I bought the Xperia Z in the first place was the purple color fitting perfectly to the Omnibalance design. I didn’t even consider buying the black and white.

    However, Z1 looks not as beautiful as Z. That was actually a surprise for me. I still think Xperia Z is so far one of the best designed smartphones ever marketed.

    And white… The front bezels should also be white, not black. It’s a big thumbs down for me.

    Oh cool man!!:-)

  • Assa7in King


    Oh plz someone stop me ! i’m gonna die !!
    Thats real sexy…

  • 3rdflyleaf

    I actually like the black front bezels on white one. It looks sexier. It makes it looks bezel less.

  • sfordesign

    yes purple might look stunning, but it just basically doesn’t suit anyone. girls may pick up the purple one but they are just more likely to pick up the white one; black and white are definitely the correct choices for guys but i just can’t ever imagine guys using a purple phone. imo purple is between male and female, just saying.

  • samshit


  • What? I’d use it… it’s a nice color and it’s a dark, metallic purple. Don’t be insecure, problem solved.

  • DrKrFfXx

    Purple is my favorite color, since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I was Donatello, my brother, Leonardo, my cousins Raphael and Michellangelo hahaha

    So yeah, no shame in having the Purple Z1, it’s a flashy color, not a girly color. I really regret picking the black Xperia Z instead of the purple.

  • Hakan Mutlu

    I can’t even keep myself from looking at my purple baby. I think tagging a color sex/genderwise is a mistake. If you like what you see, use it. :) You’re buying it yourself, not for anyone in the street or in a Café.

  • MarkLastiwka

    I’m starting to get bored of black and white. I love Motorola’s customize how you want, but the Z1 does look pretty good in Purple. Also, purple is the Engineer’s colour lol

  • the_black_dragon

    Will get it in purple this time <3
    Z was not available from my Provider when i bought it but now i will get a free one :)

  • TheSparks

    Red or Blue will be really nice!

  • encore

    Tha fact is that the greyf of the aluminium doesn’t suit the purple color very well….

    Oh La La!

  • mnevil

    The reason why i bought the BLACK xperia Z is because it completely looks black from afar. And that looks extremely sexy.

    However, i dont like the silver accents on the new Z1. Its not as sexy even on any color.

  • mnevil

    Plus the blue accents on the side of the xperia Z screams perfection! Just perfect!

    I hope the next flagship on January 2014 would have the same accents as the original Z not the Z1.

  • aligamz

    Xperia Z1 reminds me of the Sony Ericsson C501/C902 Series. Same square design, same two-tone edges. Coincidence?–Sony-Ericsson-C501-ZADARMO-s-odsupenim-pausalu-T-Mobile-1281638180.jpg

  • i’ll be getting my Z1 with that color :) very flashy ;)

  • s-emo

    Maybe I’m too old compared to the majority of black/white/grey guys here but I love colours in phones just as it was hip more than a decade ago (R520m, T20, T100, W800, etc.). I really don’t understand why a colour different than black would not suit guys these days. Personally I would love to have the new phones with touches of bright coloured (even neon) parts with a metallic brush finish for example.

  • s-emo

    That beauty!! I miss the old SE design

  • the_black_dragon

    RUN! :D

  • If you care about far away distance appearance, just buy some black colored bezel skins once they’re available from various shops.

  • nadoudidou

    this is a phone i want to have in every possible color !

  • aname

    purple is more Sony than any other color

  • Cheng

    I will buy purple. NO other phone has this purple as Sony. be special!

  • nidou bossy

    The white Z1 is the sexiest phone EVER!

  • jag

    It looks delicious!! ^^

  • Umar Khan

    the only phone i will buy for my GF ….. IF I HAD ANY

  • Purnama

    i just hope Sony make new Cyber-Shot series using design language of previous Cyber-Shot phone with some design improvements (not too bulky but with Xenon flash)… and to open camera function, we just need to open lens cover…

  • Sami Mrabet

    I am going to buy the Purple! am i a Girl now?

  • Jing

    Looks like there is no shatterproof screen! HOORAY

  • tositem

    Ah… This is my favorite design ever, SE K850…

  • P9

  • HardyHarHar

    Purple/Violet is my favorite color but……… uhm…….. Ok I want a purple phone now…. But I really prefer black and white phones over any other color they just look professional and durable :D

  • urangsundaasli

    the purple edition never come to indonesia retailer…

  • urangsundaasli

    i like it

  • Ray

    Why she dunk her xperia phone in the glass of water without apparent reason? LOL (Avril Lavigne – Rock and Roll)

  • darshan Shrimankar

    I want in red….

  • themanspirit


    IMHO, a darker shade of the frame like gunmetal would help the Z1 range.
    It would make the frame less eye catching, so the colour of the body is the highlight.
    Giving the Z1 a more subtle look.
    That easily links back to the Z.

    Currently, if it weren’t for the coloured highlights in the frame.
    IMHO Z1 would be too reminiscent of the iPhone.
    Inparticular in Black.
    Which is why I would choose Z1 in Purple.

  • saif

    it’s c510 :) i use it still as a secondary phone

  • Jing

    shatterproof film on the screen *

  • lovebmw

    That blue line used to be so sexy

  • lovebmw

    Love it

  • vigneshprince

    I’m having this mobile now also its C510, and i own a Xperia Z too.

  • vigneshprince

    not this is not c510 c510 dnt have 5.0 mp its 3.2 in c510

  • reza

    I had a purple W950i and it was great
    And yeah im a guy

  • LancerEX

    While the purple may look good, I can easily pair my black phone to different colored cases. :)

  • Guest

    It means Xperia Z1’s design is outdated and oversized. Yeah i know, that becuz the ugly huge bezel. DAT BEZEL!

  • fuckedyourmom

    ill definitely buy the purple one! Matches the color of my dick! Lol!!

  • Rob

    Buying an awesome-looking phone and putting in a case is a crime punishable by death in most countries..

  • Krasnaldo

    Much better than Xperia Z in purple. Like it!

  • mnevil

    Because she can

  • fried_egg

    yeah, purple looks wonderful. white i am sure also looks great (but it will also show how “big” it is… i pre-ordered black because it wont be so obvious when around train stations at night and other places where people look for phones to steal…

  • Meow

    Nope. White is still the best!!

  • ChrisC

    It’s just a waste to use a case on Sony’s beautiful phones! But it’s a must for Samsung’s?

  • ChrisC

    Purple looks stunning! Definitely my next phone!

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    I knew choosing the purple would be good for me.

    God, I loved that phone! The C501, I loved how the screen was massive and the keyboard was small but still completely usable and still looked sexy, and that from the back it looked like there was no camera, I remember people asking me that at school and then i’d slide the panel down and everyone was impressed. Good times. My first Sony Ericsson phone and last non-smartphone (still here today X10 Mini Pro, Mini Pro, SP).

  • Guest

    The only bad thing was that after a while the silver on the square came off and it looked a bit rusty like. But honestly, if Sony just updated that phone, same design, just smartphone stuff, the right connectors, etc, I would buy it in a shot.

  • Anukul

    my favorite design from Sony Ericsson, I still consider it the best

  • vigneshprince

    its c510 not c501

  • saif

    its c510 m talking about black phone over here

  • Karri

    I love the purple-two-tone look, which is why I’m still most likely to get one in purple, assuming I get one. Turquoise please!

  • nidou bossy

    Out of topic…..
    ..but yeah, Sony RULES and always ABOVE Samsung!

  • vigneshprince

    oh sorry dude sorry i thought u said about the above phone, my bad!

  • saif

    it’s ok :)

  • matkap hüsnü

    z1, z ultra and z would be good looking if front bezel had same color like the back…

  • Micro

    Yeah.. those are actually real photos of my C902, I simply LOVED that design, and those blue touch buttons of the camera..

    And now Z1, not purple, but still amazingly beautiful, and fuck trolls and haters, I love the bezels ;P

  • Do you have access to the Z an the Z1 both in purples? I really need to see a comparison in the colors… Is the purple in the Z1 more of a violet/bluer purple vs the more plum colored purple of the Z? If that is true I want to upgrade my Z to the Z1 because the color purple is very important to me but I like it to be a blurple Please let me know or post up a comparison photo because none exist on the net.

    I bought the black xperia z 7 months ago in black. And like they say, piano black! The color black suits all color wallpaper. But then again, i kept returning to sony stores checking out the purple one. And started obsessing over it. 7 months after i divorced my black xperia z and runaway with z purple. Its a different kind of purple, metallic. And its beautiful! Z1 purple is plain violet plus yes the silver frame doesnt suite the violet body. If only sony should have made the bezel the color of the frame for z. I should have been married.
