Saurav Ghosh, 02 Jun 2014So how bad is the display actually? If you compare with Z2 or S5 or those kinds?I am a Z2 user, and Z1 compact has IPS display
720 p is excellent for 4.3" display and it produce naturally rich colour like Z2
Z1 compact is better and stronger than galaxy s5, if you do not like big screen
1080p shines in big screen and at 4.3" screen ,1080p and 720p can't divided with human eyes
I mean, they are the same in 4.3" screen
In camera, z1 compact20.7mp camera is better than galaxy s5 and note3 and Xperia z
Have a nice day,

Ria_14, 02 Jun 2014I want to know what could be the most acceptable reason why a Samsung user will switch to this... moreI can't give an option on the camera because I have not tinkered with it yet but this phone is fast & the battery is fantastic.
Sony only lightly skinned Android unlike Samsung where they add another gig or two to the installation file size.
SwiftKey open instantly on this. My Samsung's were a disaster after a while. I'll never buy a Samsung ever again.
The battery is the main selling point for me. I stream music & radio for 8 hours a day most days in work plus bluetooth for an hour & then my usual lunchtime and evening browsing. The phone is turned on at 7am & by 11pm there is still about 30% left.
Gps & Internet connect fast & being waterproof, this phone is a great option for active people who don't want to bulk of a larger phone.
I'm getting used to the screen and the sound is kinda ironed out at this stage. The camera might be your only issue.
dinozos, 01 Jun 2014Z1 Compact or LG G2??? Leave aside the size difference.Lg g2
dinozos, 01 Jun 2014Z1 Compact or LG G2??? Leave aside the size difference.z1 compact with expandable memory and is dust and waterproof
I want to know what could be the most acceptable reason why a Samsung user will switch to this phone.
I value good camera resolution (in low light, underwater and fast movement), and a phone that doesn't lag/hang, and high speed mobile data/internet especially when used on mobile applications.
I appreciate all your response. Thank you
i should have come to the site before going in for it. I just swapped my Samsung windows for sony z1 mini. what a regret. I cant take it back. any one with how to set to the 16 g. does it work because my internal memory only reads 2gig
Hmm. Sound's bad. Display's bad. Camera? God knows if I will ever find a decent phone with civilized size!
jerjer, 31 May 2014which is more better s4 zoom or z1 compact
Both are two different things but if you prefer camera then go for S4 zoom bcoz Z1C camera quality is so bad.
Specs and performance wise Z1C is better phone.
Messidona, 30 May 2014Help me please - Z1C or Acro S? I mean not which one is better but quality/price. Acro S is 20... moreAcro S is a horrible big thick phone, not great performance, not the best touch, no more software updates, not great battery, not great display. It was good at its time but if you compare it to phones of today you will see how much phones has improved over the last two years. Dont get Acro S, you will regret.
Sina, 01 Jun 2014My experience tells me that there is always something wrong with Sony. They just try to reach ... moreSamsung & Nokia are crap. Nokia makes crap hardware & samsung write slow, unnecessarily large, crap software.
This is my first Sony & I'd take it's short comings any day over Samsung's.
It this stage I'd buy an iPhone if they made one with a big battery & opened up ios 8 to third party keyboards.
Apple's software is as clean as it gets.
jerjer, 31 May 2014which is more better s4 zoom or z1 compact z1 compact it is...
My experience tells me that there is always something wrong with Sony. They just try to reach higher numbers in their products. But practically it is the same as before. Just google Z1 compact camera performance or customers opinions after updating their phone to Kitkat!!
They are way far behind Apple,Samsung,Nokia and HTC.
raymond0376, 28 May 2014Please find my screen shot here in this link to image shock http://imageshack.com/a/img839/774... moreThanks,
Please post a review on camera & move to SD card compatibility of this device.
I mean, how I can move Apps to SD card?
Messidona, 30 May 2014Help me please - Z1C or Acro S? I mean not which one is better but quality/price. Acro S is 20... moreFor me, of course the best is Xperia Z1 Compact in your options. Yes, price is expensive but the specification we get is very good compare Arc. Now depends on you, Xperia Arc is too old now, better go for newer products.
Help me please - Z1C or Acro S? I mean not which one is better but quality/price. Acro S is 200$ cheaper in my country. Ok, the camera is 12mpx not 20, but nobody talks about weak flash and night shots. Acro S makes not only Full HD but Full HD with good details (check gsmarena's test). Yes, not like Z1C but still good. Ram and processor is worsе but maybe enough? And nobody cries from nasty Kit Kat! Nothing about bad sound too. The only thing makes me angry and moody: Acro S is 2 years old.
And after all 200$ cheaper...
What do you think?
35k for Z1 compact or 39k for S5 Exynos, hard to decide. S5 only disadvantage is the processor which make me to look for other options.
