I need my next Xperia to have perfect slide on touch and selfcleaning display like my BlackBerry, thats what even many cheap china phones have today.

A perfect young human eye maxes out at 950 ppi, or 0.35 arcminutes, Z1c has only just below 1 arcminute at normal viewing distance, ie the eyesight of someone between 65 to 70 years old.

Dont need those numbers anyway, only need to look at FHD phones how vastly superior they are. Miss my Xperia Z, was almost perfect, had to look real close to find flaws, Z3c should be noticeable better. Exited.

As for the PPI, you must be insane if you think it isn't good enough. I don't see the need for any higher PPI, and would rather have the lower energy consumption.

I have the phone for 3 monthes.
All are perfect, but the flashlight is very poor. Power of processor and GPU are ideal, super phone.

The display is not very clear due to low ppi, and the worst is the shatter proof sheet on the display, which i had on many other Xperia models and i have to say "NEVER AGAIN". Spend a few days with a BlackBerry or iPhone and you will hate your Xperia so much because of the display sheet, its dirty and gives a bad touch and scratches like crazy, impossible to keep clean even with water.

Remove the sheet? Doesnt help much, theres no oleophobic coating under, it will still be dirty and hard to clean and have an unpleasant touch. The sheet is really a dealbraker and the display PPI never belonged in a compact flagship. My BlackBerry has higher PPI but is a problem, its too low still.

Go for Z1c..."best buy" phone on the market

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2014-08-30 10:48 from mun6 - click to readWhat i think is to wait for Z3 Compact, will not take long and will be worth the wait, same size as Z1 Compact but bigger display and presumably Full HD, finally!

Nexus 5 doesnt have very good battery life and the cam is mediocre too, and of course it has no expandable storage. Newer Android versions? Or involuntary beta testers? Once for Nexus 4 or 7 there was only 6 days a week, that should give you an idea how much Google test new releases internally before pushing them out to Nexus device users. And as you said, its too big.

hey guys i am looking for a good phone and so far i am cut between sony z1 compact and nexus 5. z1 compact looks better overall but the performance of nexus 5 seems to be better and it has a better version of android or something i suppose, but the size of nexus 5 really concerns me. would i be able to use it with one hand or is it too big? the size was also the main reason why i didnt buy z1 becouse it was uncomfortable for me to use. What do you guys think?

> In reply to Eldamri @ 2014-08-28 17:18 from ubfu - click to readActually Ray had a good successor, the Xperia SX was similar size and kind of high end phone with 3.7 inch qHD display, 1.5GHz dual core Krait and similar camera as Ray. The only negative thing was the 4GB storage, and of course that you had to import it from Japan yourself... So many people wanted the SX to be international.

Xperia U was also a Ray successor.

Same footprint, slightly bigger screen, ip58, 16GB ROM and at least 2GB of RAM or they can opt in making it 8gb ROM and 1GB RAM. Non-removable battery is fine with me. :)
