I love sony, and have alot of sony thing. i think they are a good company and will continue to buy. But i am very disappointed about the z3. Hope they do better with z4. I have z2 and will not upgrade to z3. But z3c looks awesome
So, basically they remade the Z2 with a new name? My, my, what innovation.
So, by releasing this phone, they are trying to get rid of the old stock? Really, what is different with this ”new” one? Strange designed speakers?
So, how much cheaper will this be than the Z2?
I don't see any other reason to release it...
This is a way to undervalue your own product
Call a press meeting and then leak it 2 weeks before the event.
oh well it's freed up time to concentrate on the events held at the IFA
except Processor everything is same comparing to Z2, even design also similar.....sony you kidding....
Yeah, another Android rehash. Slight bump in CPU and that's is it. Maybe this one will get L while Z2 won't. Exciting!!!

Is one or two mm more narrow. The big change is being 8 mm thinner.

kira-, 21 Aug 2014Purple is the best colour, why would you replace it with Amber?Agreed
Gary5, 21 Aug 2014Sony is killing themselves by lauching new flagship every six months. This is wrong at some ma... moreOn the other hand I think that a 6 month cycle is smart...There will always be new users that will buy the newest Xperia Z itteration, whilst older flagships get a significant cut on the price...so people buy a flagship spec phone for a lower price. Exactly the case with Z1C now...top spec phone is now cheaper than all those midrange spec minis from Samsung, htc and Lg.
So in my country now there is a waiting list of preorders to vendors for the sold out Z1C...
9mm narrower and you say that they have only barely changed? It's more than 10% reduction in width.
I do agree, the design sucks, looks like a bloated iphone...but I guess that is the point of the design, to steal away some iphone users...glad I bought the beautiful Z1C. Although, it ll be a beast of a phone specs wise...I would not consider it. New users will be happy though...
top/bottom bezels still big @31.4 mm
side bezels are Ok @7.6 mm down from 8.5
