Am desperate to go for this phone. Only two things i ve been seeing in user reviews are bothering me. Can you guys confirm them.
1. Loudspeaker volume is bad - Is it decent? - Can we hear atleast the phone ringing in a slighly noisy env?
2. Attracts heavy Scratches on front & Rear - Does they attract scratches even after getting scratch guards / screen protectors?
guyz whether i should update to kitkat or stick with jb.is it any major difference between jb and kitkat.and whether phone run that smooth without any lag in kitkat as in jb.thanx in advance.
2 month han on that phone.
Amazing battery life. For moderate use holds for 5 days without charge at stamina mode.
Dont like its too easy to scratch. Been in my pocket together with car keys for some hours and its scratched from both sides, cause its plastic. Only its big brother Z1 is made from tempered glass from both sides.
performance is quite good. Satisfied all my needs as im not playing games un mobile phone. For that is made my laptop.
Music quality is good, cause of walkmann music player. Can customize EQ and all other functions for me. But im normally using it through car stereo system, cause all the external speakers are rubish for mobile phones, because of their micro size

Guys, bible. To be honest pics taken on the Z1 Compact are really awesome outside. But the camera will start to struggle to take those amazing photos indoors.but its not that shitty, its still good. It will just take decent photos. Gonna get this!

You can easily find numerous examples of the issue, even with comparison pictures taken with another phone (of the same setting at the same moment).
No problems whatsoever in other cases, like your pictures can vouch for.
rejaz, 05 May 2014Camera quality is not good, cannot even compare with 8 mega pix.if you believe that the Z1C camera is not well, kindly check this photos taken from mine. Lets make its performance speak itself.... http://imageshack.com/a/img835/6884/8vao.jpg

i've been using this phone for a couple of days, and overall i'm really satisfied with this phone, and for me it perform really well, the screen even though it is not 1080p like the Z1 it is really enough for the 4.3 inch display.. and the things i like is that i can use this phone the whole day with 1 charge.. (using it as a modem, while still do some work with it but not a heavy task), and it is well build, you really can feel that it is a quality product, again in my opinion.. as for drawbacks for me till now the only drawback is the loud speaker volume, all and all i'm still really2 satisfied with this phone..

And, admit it, you cant see it without zooming in, you would need to print a very big poster before anyone could notice it. For crops it may be a different story but in most cases it would have to be a very small crop before it would be visible.
On a side note, and not directed at you, i find it funny how so many people say that 720p displays are good enough and yet they want much much more when it comes to camera. Its a self contradiction 99% of the time.
champ, 05 May 2014I just want to know the camera quality of z1.can any one tell me?My personal experience about the camera of Z1 compact is not desirable! in full resolution, details are not as well as you expect. the main drawback is very soft image around the center and it looks due to lens quality. GSMARENA has noticed this issue in Z1 review too.
