In the comparison photo with camera I can see less definition and clarity in photos taken with the camera xperia z1 compact than the pictures taken with the camera htc 816, for example. It is possible? Watch "photo quality comparison" in gsmarena test

Wonderful device. They say gorilla glass, but anyway its better to buy rubber case, there are lots of nice ones. Back cover is not resistant for scratches.
CPU and RAM is more than enough, it never restarted or bugged. Even with FB, some games and Skype running in background. Only one disadvantage camera button but be pressed strongly to run camera. Probably due the waterproof protection. If you are not fan of monster screens, this is your choice. Buy a dock-station and you are the happiest owner.

Guys, 8MP (16:9) camera setting is still the best with manual settings. In the end? don't be fooled by a phone that has a lot of MPssssss... and so on.. What's great about the camera is its sensor. Outdoor shoot is superb (manual settings of course. Learn to play with it)

I guarantee you that 4.4.4 solved most of the bugs found in 4.3 and 4.4.2.

What I don't like is that there is no option for me on whether I can install it on internal or sd storage. Unlike other phones (Samsung, LG) have these.. why sony oh why?...

I own a z1 compact for about two weeks now and it really is the perfect phone. I have no problems with it. The camera is perfect and I mostly took pictures in superior auto mode(up to 8 MP). Everything is blazing fast and the battery life is perfect. It lasted for three hole days with medium usage. I heard that some think it doesn't have a really good speaker, but, in my opinion, it is really loud. Although, I mostly listen through earpieces and the quality is great. I still haven't upgraded it to KitKat and honestly I don't think I'm going to any time soon. Jelly Bean works great for me. About it's design, I can only say it looks and feels amazing. I got the pink one, and it really looks stunning. I recommend it.

Overall, when I plus my x-mini speakers, it sounds great.
