Well in all honesty, I would recommend the Galaxy S4 or the Note 3 over it. My POV would be Note3>S4>Xperia in an overall comparison.
The Xperia has really bad viewing angles. (Common with LCD displays, obviously)

Oh I forgot to mention, the Z1 is waterproof up to 1.5 meters. I didn't put mine under water because I was afraid to do that. Some people on YouTube have done it, though.

If you don't always have the sun directly on the phone, and you don't take your phone swimming with you, I would ultimately recommend the Galaxy Note III, or the S4.

@Metus66 I guess I'm going with the Note 3 but which one? The one with the Snapdragon 800 or Exynos 5 Octa? Which is better at playing games and will not be a power-hungry?

Agreed.

The Galaxy Note 3 is the best. Even in direct sunlight the new Super AMOLED screen doesn't wash out like previous AMOLED panels did. This is because of the new Super AMOLED panels are brighter because Samsung engineered more power efficient AMOLED panels.

Also there are many videos that show that the Z1 isn't 100% waterproof. Even if the rubber ducts are sealed, there are some reports of water entering because of narrow defects.

sony phones aren't really "waterproof". Closing all the openings is a chore in itself. Low technology lol.
