I read quite a number of comments and cannot agree more to one of it which is size. I also find the latest models too big to handle and a bit awkward to pocket. Xperia Z1 compact comes with my size without compromise on performance such as similar models of Samsung and HTC. Great phone.
james2312, 15 Jan 2014Hi, thanks for your opinion. My logic is not illogical at all. If the launch price is 550USD I... moreOk, you are talking about fantasy trickster prices from smartasses through unofficial channels. Here all Xperia phones are launched at a price and they will stay close to that price until they get an official pricecut after some 4 to 6 months. That goes for web stores as well as brick and mortar stores.
How come this phone is not among the top 5 in daily interest. There must be something wrong here.
Nordic236, 14 Jan 2014Can someone tell me one thing, between Z1 and Z1 Compact, do I lose anything with smaller scre... moreNope. Well, the battery in Z1 Compact is less powerful but you won't feel the difference since smaller resolution uses less power. In conclusion Z1 Compact is Z1 just in smaller dimensions.
anon, 14 Jan 2014wait for Z1 Compact Dualwhat is the price z1 compact
great phone! but, i guess the market price above S4 mini and One mini..
So the Z1S to USA T-Mobile will be optimized for frequency bands. "The Xperia Z1s supports LTE and HSPA+ 42. Its LTE modem is Category 4, so it handles the maximum speeds of T-Mobile's upcoming 20+20 LTE network. "
Can anyone clarify whether purchasing an international version from Europe or Asia (when released) will support thos same Tmobile Bands?
I love their glass and aluminum. Also, I love the way they design Xperia Z1 Compact. I should pre-order this one.
Come to daddy, can't wait to experience the best Compact smartphone on the Market!
Anomynous, 12 Jan 2014Wait.. You willing to wait until August if this phone cost $550 at launch? To save $50? In Aug... moreHi, thanks for your opinion. My logic is not illogical at all. If the launch price is 550USD I will be one of the first customers to buy it. The Z1 was offered at around 1000USD at launch at ebay (now 570). That was my point, so I calculated at least 850USD as initial price for the Z1C. 350USD (850-500) savings are not a small amount. I do not want to discuss about unconfirmed prices. I have as confirmed price 449 pounds which means 740 USD. Well without sarcasm I really hope you will get a functional phone for 550. Greetings.
Anomynous, 14 Jan 2014A Sony employee has told one of his friends that the Z2 Compact will have a 4.5 inch Full HD d... moreWell, with all respect to the posters, I could talk about how amazing specs the Z3 Compact could/will have. I think we should discuss here about how outstanding the confirmed Z1C is. I see however one positive aspect talking about the new leaked Z2 (I did not read anything about a Z2C yet), people tend to wait for the latest model, so maybe the Z1C could reach more customers with an affordable price if the Z2 is announced in Barcelona, as well I like how sony is giving a simple designation to their phones, with the letter Z reserved for the high end ones. I think combinations like ZR, Z-Ultra or names like advance are confusing until you read the specifications to figure out what segment a phone belongs too. Well I really think with the Z1C sony will discover how many people prefer such a size, in fact they always knew but either they were not able to make such a device or they simply forgot about their customer´s opinions. Greetings to all of you.

However in my opinion you will barely notice big differences, unless you need to see the display at a very close range. In my case the primary reason to choose the Z1C over the Z1 is the size. I really need a mobile phone, not a mini tablet. Greetings to you.
Anomynous, 14 Jan 2014Try to play with the numbers. Z1C is only 6mm narrower than Z, not a big difference, esp wh... moreYes thnx for the reply, but i cant use my xperia z in 1 hand. So i wait for z1compact. Actually iphone5s is really perfect for my hands, the only prob is i want xperia. I saw in pictures that compact is almost the same size as iphone.
Can someone tell me one thing, between Z1 and Z1 Compact, do I lose anything with smaller screen resolution? (1920x1080 against 1280x720)?
anon, 14 Jan 2014wait for Z1 Compact DualMost high end buyers dont want dual sim, why would we wait for it?
Best of all this will never be available with dual sim.
Its coming out in Nordic countries already end of this month, less than 2 weeks to go. Price is just a bit above Xperia Z and far below Z1, promising.
4.4 future update will be good on xperia line.
Kit-Kat imersive mode best for gaming.
