Hi, I have been using this phone for like 6 months and still running amazing, about the cracking I have no any problems at all and I have dropped a few time unwanted of course. The screen looks like new I'm using it without any hard case it only have an anti scratch protection on both sides

Can anyone advise how durable is the screen if its accidentally dropped, i tried to google but found no videos on drop test. Any advice from the current users,what is the best protection and whether using tempered glass is advisable.

I have read many comment on this phone regarding the self cracking issues. Some users reported that their phone cracked after months of used. Some after days of used. They claimed that they havent dropped the phone nor put pressure on it.

@User for many months. How is your unit now? Is there some truth to it. I'm already confused. Some claim its true and other claims its not(invented by Sony haters). I have always wanted to buy this beast but Im very hesitant after reading/hearing those issues. Can someone answer me honestly? Please speak from experience.

Seems the Z1c will be getting the 5.0 upgrade.

Why not pink? It looks by far the most attractive of all four color varieties

Hi I recently ordered the Z1 compact from Amazon. I have not seen the phone yet but heard the Z series of Sony phones have self screen cracking issues. Just wanted to know if any of you have faced such a problem with z1 compact, specially for people in India as we have hot and humid climate. Thanks

> In reply to Bob @ 2014-10-15 17:19 from vbR7 - click to readIf you want all that power, but in a compact frame, choose the Z1C; i've bought it, and i don't regret it one bit. Tge battery lasts 2 days and more with moderate usage, and with heavy usage it lasts a day at minimum. Its big brother, the Z1 is more of a status symbol, a 1080p 5 inch screen is bound to get some attention; but its battery doesn't last not nearly as long, and the screen has viewing angle issues.

Hi everyone,
I actually wanted to ask whether I should go for Z1C or the Z1? How long does the battery last? I am an average user with not much gaming and social networking from my phone. Will this phone last me a day or more?
Please help me choose.
Thanks.
