This is the best smartphone in world.
It's beautiful and isn't a phablet like the recent "smartphones".

With fixed batteries you can't do this and are at the mercy of whatever tiny battery has been installed.

No wonder why companies don't want you to play with the battery any more; after 2 years your phone also gets slower due to new software and services, so the battery gives you another push.
And if you want you can still replace the battery for every phone, it's just a bit harder / more expensive, not impossible; you can replace it once after 1-2 years and be happy. So where is the problem, u miss playing with your phone cover??

Doesn't make a blind bit of difference, with no removable battery, this handset is pointless.

Philippines, it is expected to be priced at 24-26k. That's 400-420Euro. It's a neat price, talk to store manager and you'll get additional discount or freebies, that's everyone should learn, how to negotiate. Btw z, z1, and zr just got a price cut around 15%.

That's a bit of a rip-off. In Poland, the Z1 Comapact costs around the eqiuvalent of £400 from a certain brick-and-mortar/online-retailer store. I'm a bit amazed at the fact UK prices are higher as per usual they're not.
