Gadget freak$, 25 Feb 2014Can any1 plz suggest me whether i should buy the Z1c or the Original Z1.. Both the amazing si... moreDepends what size is right for you.. i prefer the Z1compact it can be used with one hand and does not cover your face whilst talking or if the price is right go for the HTC One which was voted '' the best smartphone 2013''
Addition: it is possible that the screen type could be PVA-TFT, as this is a Samsung technology, and there is a "S-LCD" alliance between Sony and Samsung.
Interesting note, if this is true, it's possible that the screen on the Xperia Z2 is not a standard IPS, but Samsung's proprietary PLS technology.
Either way, cool screens - cool phones!
aroy, 25 Feb 2014Totally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got at... moreIts good phone and there is no phone in market with similar specs at price below this....its direct competition is Iphone.
Moreover price should come down in month or so
aroy, 25 Feb 2014Totally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got at... moreDo not worry prices will come down after 2/3 months as usually happens with all newly launched phones. The fact remains its a great phone with the latest specs and solid build quality.. only HTC One matches it.
The screen type as i have come to find out is MVA-TFT, which is an alternative technology to IPS.
It allows for much better angles and color reproduction than TN-TFT (which is used in their former Z series phones), fast response times, and arguably the highest contrast ratio of any TFT...including IPS.
A well made screen of any type will be enjoyable, as i see in my Xperia ZR, but a better technology frees up the need for software compensations and/or raises the ceiling on what a device can do. The Z1C has a screen that has been regarded as the best so far (bar Z2) of the Z series, so regardless of the technology implemented, it's still awesome.
Phones are here to HELP us enjoy life, so love life my friends!
Can any1 plz suggest me whether i should buy the Z1c or the Original Z1..
Both the amazing sibling flagships of sony are available now at nearby Sone Center..
Cant choose one of them.. Which one will be Value for money..?? Help..
how on earth the ''talking'' time on 3G networks is nearly twice as that of ''2G''???
Anomynous, 24 Feb 2014Now look at that, you have the alternatives ready already, then all you need to do is go and b... moreTotally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got attracted to Z1C. But my point was that the better features in this phone is just not worth the big difference in price compared to others in the same category.
And you can never say that the price is cheap just because you see 45k when you convert your currency to INR. 37k is still damn expensive. It's the most costliest phone among all 4-5 inch phones in India, after Iphone5S.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014Neither of the two is with IPS panel. Go check Sony website..Z2 uses IPS Panel!!
sup, 25 Feb 2014where is the linkall my media is instantly uploaded to dropbox, I just share the dropbox link, that way recipients get to view the full version.
I find this solution better for sharing with multiple contacts as well,
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2014ips or not? z2 defined ips why z1 compact not?Neither of the two is with IPS panel.

Blackwithone, 25 Feb 2014I just send a dropbox link, quick and easy for me.where is the link
please be aware. unlike other xperia phones the z1 compact has video rec options at fullhd, hd and mms format....only and does not have vga format as an option ,,,,,,,,
what this means in terms of wattsapp...... to send a video via wattsapp the file size needs to be below 15mb......if you record a video in fullhd or hd even a 10second video will consume more that 15 mb.......mms format is very poor for viewing ...vga format was the only good option as one cld record a 1 minute video for less than 15 mb and send the same via wattsapp and still have reasonable good viewing ....this format is not availabe on z1 compact so you have to take the pain to change the format via some play store app and then send
so sony please add the vga option as wattapp is used more than anything else and without the vga shooting mode we will not be able to send videos via wattsapp
does anybody know when this phone will be available with any of the us carrier like T-mobile/Att.
i love this phone size with this kind of internals but it is not released in USA yet
Does anybody know when this phone will be available in USA with t-mobile or ATT?
Guys, I just received my Compact today and I can tell you, i'm in love with their product.I read about the debate that the back cover is not glass but plastic.Well, I can;t tell now if its plastic because it is very shiny and still looks like glass.The metal frame around its very clasy and solid and gives it a unique premium feel like i didnt felt before.It is trully a bijou in terms of design.Needless to say it works flawlessly
They moved the speakers in the lower frontal area of the phone since the consumers complained about when you put it on the table the sound is almost muted so I can say they did a pretty good job and more than happy they DO LISTEN to what we are requesting.
GG Sony from my side.
Go test it in stores before buying it but I'm telling you, its not the average phone you see everyday
