I've had tested this also with one of my friend's sony xperia z1 the bigger sibling of sxz1 compact and obsereved the camera performance at low light conditions and at no/zero light conditions with the flash on/auto and that was it, because the two phones shared the same sps treatment by the manufacturer. Better if sony can replace the back cover sps film with a led flash light cut out and a free of charge including installation/fixing to the phone. I simulated it also with other couple of phones, covered the led fash light with a screen protector through the camera lens with a cut out on the lens tested at low light and no/zero light conditions now same thing happened with the two xperias. And sony may also redesign the glass back cover to make a cut out for the led flash light on the glass itself and put a silver ring or in any material encircling the led flash light to prevent from flash bleeding. The same design on the silver ring of the camera lens of the phone itself. Thanks, cheers.
Also been waiting for it to be released in the Philippines. I was advised by online stores that it will be available anytime this Feb. But, according to Sony PH website it will be available 2nd quarter of this year. And, accdg. to the Xperia store near me it will be available last week of Feb or first week of March so yeah... I'm getting different answers from different stores...

In reality any picture viewed on this phone will not be 4.3 inches diagonally.

Are you sure you are not misleading people?!!

How does it work on other wifi networks? If it does the same its no problem to have your phone exchanged but dont wait, return it now or they may insist on trying to repair it instead.
Some foreign language website used lab equipment to test the wifi signal of Z1 and Z1C, both were good and the compact came out slightly ahead.

If it is due to the sps then it is definitely yet another reason to lose the damn thing for good from future xperias.
For those interested in checking this theory, you probably don't have too much to worry about without the sheet, as the back is supposed to be gorilla glass or dragontrail glass.

Reza, 09 Feb 2014And What about "Flash Bleeding" ?!!
I have read somewhere it is form software not... moreIts highly unlikely to be software. My homebrewed theory after studying the cam setup of Xperia Z and closeup photos of the Z1/Z1C camera is that it is the shatterproof sheet (SPS) on the back that transmits this light, and not the glass. The SPS has a hole cut out for the camera but part of the light from the LED trapped inside the SPS will refract and beam out on the sides when it reaches the lens cutout hole.
Think about it, the back glass is not high enough to shine light on the lens, but the SPS is (its considerably thicker than a regular protector). Therefor i believe the problem can be fixed with a scalpel, cot out some of the SPS and remove it, thats all.
To be on the safe side one should opt for the black model as it seems the problem is mainly affecting the lighter colors.
And What about "Flash Bleeding" ?!!
I have read somewhere it is form software not hardware.
When taking photo with phone using factory setting there is no problem with flash. when install some apps
then problem appears. Now any body can confirm this?
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2014you're just a liar..
it's impossible to get 2 days with all that usage with a 2300 mAh battery.It's not the first time you tried me liar ! You just a jealous to the people that already got this phone . You don't need any phone , you need a doctor !
To other people ho just whant to know -
I turned on my phone on 8.00 and was using him till 20,30 and without any recharge same for other day. With buttery saver and 50% of brightnes . If you whant great buttery live , the first 3/5 days you have pushing buttery till phone stoping self and 4/7 hours.
Yesterday I got z1c for my parter in Dubay ( in black don't buy , it's not sow exclusive ) and from the boxe 30% I make all seting and it's stopes after 5 hours.
What is extremely strange - camera in all condition is 100% perfect ( dark , light and even completely night ) . I thing Sony have to fix it thru update .
Mir, 08 Feb 2014Hi,
It is always ok to fully charge your battery. Nothing happens if you fully charge your ba... moreA battery that is always charged full will only take around 300 recharges before it has only 80% capacity.
Its already explained in earlier posts, battery manufacturers do a tradeoff, they sacrifice battery lifespan for a higher capacity. The lower charge the longer lifespan, in electric cars the batteries can often take 3 to 5000 recharge cycles before they degrade to 80%, because they are not over charging them .
Also in laptops we see that some manufacturers let us choose between max capacity and max lifespan, in max lifespan mode it simply charges the battery less and doesnt allow it to drain as low.
Its just a matter of time before smartphone manufacturers also will offer an option to never charge the battery to its max capacity, its really bad for Li-Ion batteries to be fully charged and fully discharged.

No one make as you observe,
