> In reply to oopz @ 2015-01-29 00:12 from Hkt$ - click to read1.U think a phone with 2.2ghz processor and 2gb ram will hang???..never
2.Self cracking??....simply rumors,until u sit on it or throw it
3.Camera is gud but picture quality is not,if u zoom too much u'll see noise.
u can take gud photo on low lighting.
Video recording quality is better than still image.
3d effects are cool feature
4.battery is the only big con i found,sony should hav bundled 3000mAh instead 2300mAh with removable one,but don't worry this phone will last for 1-2 days easily if u use it wisely..if u don't do heavy tasks like gaming,heavy downloading etc..

i belive in sony products ,i purchased sony xperia z1 compact for the first time and i am using it since two months . okey let me tell my review step by step

1) camera : sony is cheating us by saying 20.7 MP camera but camera clarity is equal to 8 MP in samsung (samsung galaxy prime 8MP camera = sony 20.7 MP camera) brightness of pictures is poor in maximum brightness mode so just think off what happens if you decrease the brightness

2) quad core processor: working good (drawback = In MX player it takes 10 to 15 sec to open the 7 min recorded video (hahaha... 2.2GHz processor))i kept my phone in good condition using updated antivirus ,Very good RAM cleaner

3)screen density : gsmarena says 342 ppi(CPU-Z app says its only 320 ppi)i dont know wether cpu-z says correct or wrong and i am not a technician to review ppi density exactly , i am satisfied with the screen density

4)RAM : gsmarena says its 2GB ram(CPU-Z app says its 1703MB RAM and inbuilt storage = 11.79GB) i am not checked the ram capacity and internal storage completely

4) water proof: i am not checked it still

5) battery back up :(non removable battery)i am not satisfied with the battery backup

6)sensors: all sensors are working good

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 .. :)

> In reply to SlimKIDD @ 2015-01-22 18:39 from TjWX - click to readi don't but i have security PIN setup .. so it's highly unlikely ..
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 ..
