It's easy to solve, try to remove the aluminium ring of power button with your nail. It is too thick, and then you can abrasive it for thinner. put back to the place and feel the difference

it takes getting used to, but I think it's slightly harder than Nexus 5's button .. if I was to compare .. maybe for a waterproof thing .. ?
yet it's not that hard .. it still easy to press, and I almost always using the phone with one hand except when playing or so ..

there is no comparison here, it's an upgrade in terms of performance, size, battery life, features .. you name it ..

the only thing I am not sure about is the camera .. but at the very least, they'd match if you're using manual mode (and you should, auto's bad on Z1C)

check the comparison .. :)

but in older phone (LG 4XHD), i experienced pocket-answering .. :D
yeah, when someone called me while I am walking, phone facing to leg, it'd answer the caller giving him the "panting" sound .. :D
on this phone so far no, but don't see why it wouldn't have the same issue .. !!

Only when you have MiUi ROM installed .. there is a feature to disable the screen while in a pocket (depends on the proximity sensor, natively [no battery drain]) .. only then the problem disappears ..

I've been offered this handset as a replacement from my HTC1 mini. What people's experience of having this phone? Is it a fair swap?

Best phone I've ever had. Love the power button, it doesn't press itself in my bag. Battery lasts forever. Snappy response times. Never crashes.

I think this is just a subjective opinion.
For the best result you can test a Z1C in Sony Store or any Department store.
Don't hear every bad story from other people because nowadays mobile industry has many trollers.

So many peoples feeling Power Button is hard to press. Is it true?

I have noted this in Z1 when compared to Xperia Z. Please tell me your opinion.

Screen = IPS LCD. Comparable opponent for Iphone 5c & 5s. More good looking than all Amoled in Galaxy Mini series in my opinion.

Battery Life = a full day for moderate user.

Update = All Sony Z series is planned update to Lollipop.
