I am aiming to get this phone off of Vodafone UK in the next month (my contract is up for renewal) - just waiting for the pre-order date!

That looks pretty good.  I'm on Samsung (SIII) now, but I preferred my old Xperia Arc's general feel and way of doing things.

One thing in the press release puzzles me:

'Xperia Z1 takes 61 images in 2 seconds - a second before and after pressing the shutter'

How does it know when it's one second before I do something?

thats a good question, i actually dont know, maybe the value of the watch is low to avoid any gst charge?

i have my xperia z1 by the way, have had it since yesterday, i have to say, it is gorgeous, i bought the white one, and honestly with the aliminium sides, its a sexy beast

for me personally, i use my phone quite heavily, like constantly checking facebook, twitter and instagram, the battery is so much better

the screen is again gorgeous, yes the viewing angles are not that great, but that has never bothered me anyway, the screen is noticably improved from the Z, did i say how sexy this phone looks? and feels? its just amazing

the camera is actually not that great, yet, there is a new firmware floating around which is supposed to improve things, lets just wait and see

for anyone that has a Z and is thinking of upgrading, like me, definitely do it, you wont have any regrets, the phone just flies, there is no lag whatsoever

thanks for the update. So you didn't pay the GST after all? Did you use Royal Mail? Thinking of ordering mine soon! :)

No I did pay duty for the phone, just don't think there will be duty charged for the watch as I don't think it's worth that much. I won't have to pay separate shipping for the watch.

Consider the white z1... It's gorgeous.

I've had mine since Tuesday and it just flies, then again I'm used to the good old Nexus One (2.3.7) so this is a huge upgrade :D
