Xperia Z1 builds on Xperia Z, to provide Full HD display ideal for watching movies as it provides more vibrant colors and details. X-Reality engine improves color experience on the phone hence higher power consumption especially when browsing through pictures.
It has better apps loading time compared to Xperia Z and background app load does not affect the speed of the phone. Therefore, you never get that sluggish moment that requires you to restart your phone or wait for the phone to respond as in HTC one.
