    [Q] Xposed Framework

    Has anyone found a way to get the Xposed Framework working on this phone? I know it doesn't have recovery but I have a Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL and was in the same boat but we got it working by flashing the framework using the app FlashFire. Has anyone tried this?

    Z1S question

    I searched the forum and there are '0' posts on my subject. I am replacing the LCD/digitizer assembly in my Z1s. At the bottom of the flex cable there are two connections. One is for the LCD/digitizer, I don't know what the other one is. There is a press clip between the two. It's not...

    Help Messaging Problems on Lollipop

    I just recently, within the past week or so, switched my service from AT&T to T-Mobile. The major reason for the switch was my phone; I was using a Nokia Lumia 520 that had basically become a paperweight. During the switch, I ordered a 'certified pre-owned' Sony Xperia Z1s. It arrived shortly...

    Z1s gets 4.4

    Okay all, many of you already using the PC companion software from Sony all already know of the 4.4 update, however for those who don't use it, nobody really knows the update exists.

    The Last Straw

    I can no longer be silent. I was irritated by my iPhone 5s having a small screen and my spouse and I had different service providers so it was time to switch carriers and go on one plan to save money. Why not try out an Android? Samsungs TouchWiz looks cheap along with their materials. The...

    Alas..I checked the Phone out

    I went to the T-Mobile store yesterday to check out the new phone. They had made a basic error. They had the phone displayed next to a Samsung Note 3....Sadly, there is no comparison. The Samsung phone has a vastly better screen, clean, bright, crisp...In fact, I could not see any difference...

    The Z1s Accessory Thread..Let's Talk Cases, Screen Protectors, and ???

    Since the Z1s is an exclusive phone for T Mobile in the US, I suspect that accessories like cases and screen protectors will be scarce. Consequently many "eyes" will help us all keep informed on what is available and may come available. Let's share what we find and/or use. I'll start...

    Z1s - The Audio Review

    I do enjoy my music and a phone that does a poor job of reproducing music is a "fail!" When I stared looking for a replacement for my Galaxy Nexus I narrowed down my selections to either a Nexus 5 or the Xperia Z1s. While reading reviews there were conflicting opinions about the sound quality...
