I really wish they have maximized the screen amd made it a lil bigger. Not 5" but atlease 4.5"
I did fresh install for this 4.4.4. After that the phone easily heats up then hang after half day. It's the first hang since I got this phone in April. I pressed the red button in the SIM card slot to force shutdown. After switch it on, the phone is ok and not heating up again.

I would say they are both great when it comes to capturing pictures. If you happen to pass by a store that has both phones, go try them. Don't depend on the advises as the other might work for you but not for the others and vise versa. Only you can decide.

Late availability in the US but was very satisfied with the phone. I was even given a $80 discount just by ordering thru the phone

The z1c camera is actually better than the s4 outdoors. People were complaining about the z1c camera indoors because of the quality of the image. If u choose z1c , your photos inside will be good but your photos outside will be superb!!
s4 camera is much better. I've the z1c and my sister has the s4 and she gets much better photos.

Bond. James Bond. , 08 Jul 2014Lets try again. Why does an unlocked phone needs to be rooted or for what. Hopefully somebody ... moreMan, i feel sorry for you that you can't sleep because of that simple question of yours...
When you say unlocked phone, it can be used globally, it is not locked to any carrier.
Rooting is definitely different. Rooting allows you to explore deeper into the system files of the android. You can edit/delete or move files. But be careful coz it will void the warranty and well, if you messed up with the system files, you'll get a bricked phone.
Hope you can have a nice,good sleep.
rhobie, 02 Jul 2014....your z1 compact sometimes will restarted? or not? When i'm still using 4.4.2, yes i have freeze/restart issues. I just updated my phone to 4.4.4 yesterday and here's what i noticed:
1. Camera front and back switching is much much faster.
2. No freeze/restart issues whatsover.
3. Less heat at the back when playing COC (Clash of Clans) or listening to music for 4 hours.
For those who have not yet update their phone to 4.4.4, or no updates yet, just wait because it depends on the country and the carrier as well. 4.4.4 is much stable than the previous version imho.
I just update to the latest version 14.4.A.0.108 and it also upgrade the Android version to 4.4.4(I don't think it was really exciting). Great job Sony.
