Just before the official launch of the most anticipated camera phone device, a tester has come up in open and described his experience with Honami device. First spotted by PhoneArena (via HardwareZone.com.sg, the forum post would be enough to decide whether Xperia Z1 is a hit or miss.
" The metal power button is so much smaller than the one on Z and the phone is a bit heavy. Almost same weight as Z ultra... 5" and almost same weight as Z Ultra (which is thinner), I guess it's the battery. Yes it's thicker, similar to Z.
It's brighter and more white than Z/V. And also X-Reality colors are not as saturated as Bravia Engine 2. Z Ultra display is better with richer colors and contrast although both are using the same screen. I just did a comparison side by side with Z Ultra. Z Ultra is much better whereas Honami is whiter/brighter. But take it with a grain of salt as I think the firmware in Honami is old.
Tried the camera, nothing to be wow about seriously. There's this bo liao app where you can take AR effect like a 3D dinosaur/fairies in the backdrop lol " Going by the above mentioned forum post; it is clear that Honami i1 is an upgraded version of Xperia Z. The Xperia Z1 has a better processor and above average camera. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
