If you get a "halo" on your picture the same color as the phone then the flash is bleeding through the glass to the lens.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2014you're just a liar.. it's impossible to get 2 days with all that usage with a 2300 mAh battery.Are you the girl who keeps calling everyone a liar? Please stop. I have had several phones which had phenomenal battery life. If for example the screen brightness is turned down and you are near a mobile antenna so the phone is using less signal then you will get much better results. Also, some batteries are just better from the factory.

It is always ok to fully charge your battery. Nothing happens if you fully charge your battery. Your phone will stop charging battery when it is full and you will get the noification too. and most of the cellphone chargers nowadays are equiped with smart ic's so it stop charging when battery is full.
Gutt Grinder, 08 Feb 2014Very good, indeed you're correct. I did these steps when I got my very first smartphone from i... moreThose who have an accurate multimeter can also check the voltage of some batteries of some old fashion phone with removable battery. In general the nominal voltage is 3.7v, and its recommended to not discharge it below 3v and not above 4.2v, thats the voltage range where they measure a batteries max capacity. The more above 3v and the more below 4.2v you keep your battery the longer life span it will have.
(note, this varies slightly depending on what type of lithium source is used inside the battery and also with how old phone the battery came from, many manufacturers are using lower and higher voltages nowadays to squeeze out more capacity from a smaller battery without telling us that it lowers the batterys expected lifespan and that it increases the risk for fire and/or explosion. Dont need to be a genius to see that Apple very well could have done just this, iphone 5 being so much lighter than 4S and still had bigger battery and all of a sudden one started to hear about fires caused by iphones, why didnt older iphones before iphone 5 cause fires??)
Why don't they make a home button under the screen? This way the home button takes a part of an already small screen.

The first of all , alder people ( most of them ) not using small phones and not android .
I am 45 and I don't have any problem with small tex screen but ,when I takin TGV from Antwerpen to Paris , I want comfortable play games , read news and just enjoy my trip and not take with me 3 phones for different porpoise .
It's very personal if you like or not something ( not only gsm ) I jus trying to help people to avoid quick decision on the hand of fake or payed revues .
Again - This is very good phone , but not top model , like they describe it.
Very good buttery , excellent day light camera , super quick processor and screen is like all Sony ( nothing special )
I will use this phone just for show and not for my work .
By the way I have 5s but just for collection , like my other phones .
Great day from rainy Belgium

Thats what i like, i dont like Apples philosophy of putting big things on an already small display, thats for the far sighted old people. WP often gives the same impression, you have to wonder if it was made for visually impaired people. Im sure it can be good when you are already used to it, like you are with your iPhone, but if you could get used to that inefficient use of display real estate then im sure you can get used to the Z1 Compact as well.
In any case, this is an advantage in my book.
allee687, 07 Feb 2014what to do with new phone ? When I switch on for the first time,fully discharge and then fully... moreNo, never fully discharge, try to charge when it reaches 40% and if you cant then at least never let it go below 20-30%. The sooner you charge the better.
Also try to avoid full charge, this is more difficult so for practical reasons it is hard to follow the "rule" about not going above 80% charge. One of the worlds leading battery experts, with a phD in batteries, said "as a simple rule, charge your battery before its empty", thats to make things practical for the users, but he added that keeping a battery between 40 and 60% will increase the lifespan of a battery with 20 to 25 times. Sounds great right, but its hard to do in practice for many smartphone users, especially hard for those who dont have a portable power bank.
Lately i been trying to charge my phone using a timer, i set an alarm or a countdown in my phone so i can disconnect the charger before the battery reaches 80%, i just estimate the time and with some more experience i expect i can make quite accurate estimates.
- Always charge before empty
- Try to avoid full charge

For me the biggest drown back I'd screen - it's bigger ( on the paper) than 5s but in reality it's look smaller and everything is sow small.
Camera??? In daylight is less than 1520, lg2g and same like 5s.
I just spend one hour with low light and 5s is definitely better.
Ifyou have normal hand you will have a problem for email, surf and read long text. For to carry for show is perfect phone. Sorry that I disappointing you.!

to take low light pictures. My Z1 did not have this problem. Very bad reputation for Sony not to reply quickly to hundreds of complaints about flash bleed problems in the most loyal customers who bought this z1 compact as quickly as it was introduced with their trust and confidence in Sony.
