The yellow tint issue is quite bad. So yellowish and black doesnt look black at all. I need to dispose it soon. Sigh
Since you are unable to go to a support center, I'll help you "dispose" of it!

if you have yellow hue tint issue on your new z1, hold on first because most likely it is a software issue and/or hardware issue. sony is already aware of this and is working on it. in the mean time, you can do this.

- download Screen Adjuster from google play store
- open app and set the following, red = 0, green = between 0 to 2, blue = between 6 to 20
- then set the screen adjuster on

other things you may need to do
- max the brightness, uncheck the adapt to lighting
- plug in the microusb charger to charge (through power charger and on usb)
- keep the screen on for about at least 1.5 hours (you can play with apps explore the phone or set it to always on)

this is to let the phone heat up and hopefully dissolved the yellow tint on the new phone in the event that the yellow tint was caused by the glueing of the shatter proof film on the glass (ex iphone users will know this)

i cannot guarantee that this will work for your phone but at least it did on mine (kinda subside a little)
the only thing i find is that the phone maximum brightness is not bright enough for me.

ultimately, hold your horses, dont get too emo. sony and external developers are looking to work around this even as i am typing and you are reading. i am sure once we have an official z1 thread - xperia z1 users share solutions.

Sorry if this has been asked before....

I ordered the Z1 from singtelshop, and it says i get a free microsim adaptor. Is this for microsim -> normal sim?

I am currently using the iphone 5 which is using nanosim, so do I need to buy a separate adaptor? or the free one is nanosim -> microsim?

Thanks.

Hm. I think better not use adaptor.
My friend put a adaptor and nano sim into his Z and got stucked.

I experienced it myself too by using a adaptor with a microsim. It got stucked in my Xperia S.

Managed to get my sim out thou but the adaptor remained stucked. And went my phone too

So no more adaptors for me.

I know that lots of people are snagging up Note3 here and there.

But when I hoot my Z1 from Kasia, I was told it was the last set and luckily I reserved it.
So I feel that Z1 was also selling very well, if not as good as note3.

Their service was commendable and my screen protectors both front and back was nicely re-pasted to my satisfaction.
Price-wise it was the most "reasonable" by far, maybe that was why their Z1 stocks are flying off the shelves.

Still remember the disappointed face of another customer who came after me and ask for Z1. Sorry pal, I wont let you down as I love my new toy very much.
Can share how much you got it for? What colour?
