Hey. I am using Z1 Compact from like 4 months now, ( been using a Galaxy S4 before and i wanted something smaller ). I can say it's a great phone, it doesn't lag at all, camera it's great, i've made alot of pics in water, i droped him in the swimming pool, no problems at all. The battery lasts 1 day and 12 hours with 4G activated all the time, and like 4 hours of display on.
Overall it's a great phone, no lag or freeze at all.
The only issue is the "default screen protector" which scratches like hell, so.. who is going to buy this phone, buy instantly a screen protector and u wont have any issues with this phone. Good Luck choosing !
Can freezing problem be overcomed? Somehow... Please write your experience...

Does anyone have a problem such as lagging, bugging? I have heard that phone sometimes freezes when camera is used and then it is necessary to restart the phone. Does anyone experience that kind of problem with KitKat or Jelly Bean? Thanks!
[deleted post]After a few days in a pocket remove half the protector and see the difference in the two screeb parts, if you still cant see it your eyes are too bad to use a compact smartphone anyway, buy a high contrast large font phone for the elderly with cataract.

I had it for a month and it works just fine...
The only problem I faced was that it gets heated when used for long hours playing heavy games or watching videos but so does the IPhone..
Don't expect too much from 20 mp, it's almost the same as the 8 mp of this phone. But even that 8 mp cam is remarkable, Sony did a great job in it's software
Never tested it in water, someone please let me know if it really works fine in water...

I could have bought xperia u but the lack of sd card support was a deal breaker for me not to mention the lower pixel cam and i needed at least 1GB ram :)

I need my next Xperia to have perfect slide on touch and selfcleaning display like my BlackBerry, thats what even many cheap china phones have today.

A perfect young human eye maxes out at 950 ppi, or 0.35 arcminutes, Z1c has only just below 1 arcminute at normal viewing distance, ie the eyesight of someone between 65 to 70 years old.
Dont need those numbers anyway, only need to look at FHD phones how vastly superior they are. Miss my Xperia Z, was almost perfect, had to look real close to find flaws, Z3c should be noticeable better. Exited.

As for the PPI, you must be insane if you think it isn't good enough. I don't see the need for any higher PPI, and would rather have the lower energy consumption.
I have the phone for 3 monthes.
All are perfect, but the flashlight is very poor. Power of processor and GPU are ideal, super phone.

Its not good enough, thats why. The display is not very clear due to low ppi, and the worst is the shatter proof sheet on the display, which i had on many other Xperia models and i have to say "NEVER AGAIN". Spend a few days with a BlackBerry or iPhone and you will hate your Xperia so much because of the display sheet, its dirty and gives a bad touch and scratches like crazy, impossible to keep clean even with water.
Remove the sheet? Doesnt help much, theres no oleophobic coating under, it will still be dirty and hard to clean and have an unpleasant touch. The sheet is really a dealbraker and the display PPI never belonged in a compact flagship. My BlackBerry has higher PPI but is a problem, its too low still.

Go for Z1c..."best buy" phone on the market

I love this phone,better performance,the camera is good,4.3" full hd display,it's a water resistant phone,you guys should think to buy this phone.

Nexus 5 doesnt have very good battery life and the cam is mediocre too, and of course it has no expandable storage. Newer Android versions? Or involuntary beta testers? Once for Nexus 4 or 7 there was only 6 days a week, that should give you an idea how much Google test new releases internally before pushing them out to Nexus device users. And as you said, its too big.
