    This is my first Sony only phone and I chose it because of the camera and the reviews. I owned a Lumia 920 and a SG Note 1 before ( the note is for work and they've banned personal handsets so i have to have a iPhone 4S now). I like Android so was happy with that choice and have some experience jail breaking etc. I wont be jail nbreaking this as to be honest I dont see the point. Also, I read that the camera stops working which is why I bought the damn thing. With O2, my service provider, I also received a free QC10, also in white which I haven't plugged in yet.

    The phone is a gorgeous slab but it seems quite heavy. Also, having the micro USB charger behind a flap is a pain so I've ordered a docking bay. I subsequently had to cancel my case order as it didnt have a slot for the magnetic connection. The camera is great though and I think the Sony version of Android is probably one of my favourite out there. Some nice touches. Still lots of bloatware but hey ho. So far really pleased.

    Got mine on Friday. I love the phone, but not impressed with battery performance.

    Take it off charge at 630 and by 11am charge is down to 40%. I'd say I am a medium smart phone user, but don't do anything different on this phone to I did on my Lumia 820. Lumia would last all day, down to about 50% by 5pm. My Z1 has to be put on charge at lunch time, or it wont last.

    Is this normal behaviour, or do I have a faulty phone? Either way, it needs to go back as its going to be no good when im out and about and don't have access to power.

    I used the "stamina" setting and it improved greatly. I think its hammering the data / wifi at the moment setting up. I also turned off the NFC and GPS and I switch out wifi / BT as a matter of habit anyway depending where I am. I'll give it a week and then give it a proper battery test
