I can't decide whether to replace my iPhone 4S with an Xperia Z1 or if I should keep it a bit longer until the new models all come out.

When are Sony likely to bring out a replacement for the Z1? Will it probably be next September or sooner?

The "mini" Z1 is due out early next year - same processor, GPU and camera, still waterproof, but has a smaller & lower res screen (1280x720?). Which results in it being considerably faster.

And the Z1 itself is apparently receiving an update that considerably improves the camera.

I wouldn't put much faith in that...

That would be a slight improvement over the current Z1's 5-inch screen and 441 pixels per inch.

If the Z2 is set for launch in April then I think I'll hold fire and wait for that to come out rather than investing in a Z1.

You're right.

I've made the plunge and ordered myself a black Xperia Z1 + Smartwatch from Amazon.

I got my new Z1 last week, you won't be disappointed, let us know how you find the smart watch, I'm thinking of getting one.

hi,

the smartwatch actually comes free with the phone on Amazon. I'm half tempted to just sell the watch though because I don't really see the point of it.

I got the watch free with the phone and it's a great little gizmo but wether I would say its worth buying one outright I'm not so sure.

I think it an ideal size personally so I think it's rather subjective.
