ermond12, 07 Jan 2014This is great. Love the specs. OIS on Z1 Compact? It's too bad Z1 didn't have that. Plus Carl ... moreI think the OIS mentioned in the specs could be an error as I have not seen any other article that mentions it.
Sensible specs, no over the top PPI or huge screen. Just the right size and a good 20 MP camera, because we do camera. Sony is thinking right, unlike other manufactures who just want big numbers even if they are useful or not.
Good luck Sony
I actually dont think its that compact at all.
Same width as my HTC One, and only 7mm shorter in length. Far too much bezel on the top and bottom of the phone, wasting precious screen space. If they put a 4.7" display in the same body size, that would of been more impressive
Finally, the best android phone from a while, not the 5" and 6" crap
I think Sony optics better than Carl Zeiss..
in old model sony optics (soner P1) better than Carl Zeiss Nokia (E71) with same 3.2mp optics
This phone will be amazing because of it's specs and it is very compact
The specs are contradicting. It says here on this page it uses Carl Zeiss but on the phone sections it doesn't state that it has Carl Zeiss Optics, OIS and IPS. Same goes on the Sony Mobile website. Which is which?
Finally a flagship with a medium sized display!
A love to have a phone that I can easily handle with one hand and put it in my pocket, but all the flagships start to look like the Note, huge!
And it is good thing that the display is 720p. It has high enough density in order to look sharp without sacrificing battery power and load the gpu. Gaming on this phone should be smooth as butter!
Maybe my next phone
too much bezel...this phone (4.3 inch) is about the same size with my ZL (5 inch)
this is not mini...this is incompetence!
This is great. Love the specs. OIS on Z1 Compact? It's too bad Z1 didn't have that. Plus Carl Zeiss Optics.
An actual mini version that is a mini version not a compromise like the other so called mini's that are often midrange phones..Good Effort...
