Review: Sony Xperia Z1S for T-Mobile
The Xperia Z1S isn't perfect, but it is perhaps as close as Sony has come to smartphone nirvana. The hardware works on almost every level: it looks good, is well-built, and functions well. The basics are well in hand: the screen is decent, the battery life excellent, and call quality very good. The stock Android communication tools all function perfectly and allow Z1S owners to keep in touch with their family, friends, and colleagues with ease.
The Z1S excels as a media machine. It has a comprehensive feature list that goes beyond the shotgun approach. Sony's apps actually work well and add value, rather than fill in space. The Walkman app is among the best on a mobile device for consuming music. The camera is more intuitive to use and produces better results than any phone Sony has produced to-date.
What are the Z1S's weaknesses? Well, data speeds are a bit slow, the multiple hatches can be annoying, and the double-sided glass design means you have twice as much opportunity to break it.
