Anonymous, 05 Sep 2015You're comparing Z3 Compact which released in 2014 to an old Galaxy S3 released in 2012 -_-Yes? And it was a marvelous upgrade that I'm very happy with. Despite the same screen resolutions, the screen on the Z3C is just that much better. Just making a point that even 720p screens can still hold up, even 3 years later. The phone is only 4.6", after all. The battery life is also on par with my S3 when it had a 4400mAh extended battery.
That's why Sony keeps losing money. Another product variation costs investment for additional production line. They should learn from Apple.
Does Apple create special product version for US home market? Nope.
Comme des Garcons, 05 Sep 2015The Z5C with FHD is what I call the best phone for me. Sony should make it available worldwide... moreIf this rumor is true, then this phone is probably a collaboration with Crypton. AKA it's exclusive to Japan, and is also impossible to not have that Miku logo at the back of the phone. You can probably import one if u want it so badly though :P
YR-OVI, 05 Sep 2015Unfair, we want that in Europe! Otherwise Sony will lose me as a client lol. its their country of origin. let them do what they want or just order it online and ship to your country.
Chuck007, 05 Sep 2015More RAM than the Z5 Premium? Doesn't make sense..Who cares? Its a perfect smartphone.
that compat looks as amazing as the big brother premiun ..... there is a big diffrence in scareen resoltion and ppi if 1080p looks good with 5-5.5 inches display then with 4.7 will be really crisp,,...plus 4 gb ram and more battery this is good ...this is a real compat device not that international version is bed just that this is really a mosnter of pocketable device,
is it just me or Sony should really design something new, i get that Sony's design is great but really from z1 to z5 or t or m or any series these days, what's the difference, is glass body the pinnacle of smartphone design?
bunna, 05 Sep 2015wondering why sony calls it premium when the screen is still only 720p of 5-years old technology. Z5 compact international market is 720p, for japan market is 1080p Z5 compact premium and the best part based on the picture above is that it comes with hatsune miku version. Hope sony can launch it internationally.
vrvly, 05 Sep 2015density like QHD in 6inch, great.You are correct :)
6.0" QHD = 490
4.6" FHD = 479
bunna, 05 Sep 2015wondering why sony calls it premium when the screen is still only 720p of 5-years old technology. Screen is 1080p. Read the news properly lol
bunna, 05 Sep 2015wondering why sony calls it premium when the screen is still only 720p of 5-years old technology. "wondering why sony calls it premium when the screen is still only 720p" - wondering why you reply if you don't read.
bunna, 05 Sep 2015wondering why sony calls it premium when the screen is still only 720p of 5-years old technology. apple does this for ages and no one bats an eye,sony nailed the batterylife and compactness yet last tech inside and everyone looses their minds
Screen for me would be fine at 720p, more is unnecessary. RAM wouldn't need more than 3 Gb either, but any battery bump would surely be welcomed. For me though, what would make a "premium" version worth the money would be a brushed aluminum look (either silver or charcoal) instead of the plasticky side trim, and either darken or lighten the rear glass to match. The current washed-out grey-black is like a mixed-up kid who doesn't know if he's coming or going.....
jrharbort, 05 Sep 2015Try reading again. The rumored spec is 1080p, not 720p. Additionally, the 720p screen on the Z... moreYou're comparing Z3 Compact which released in 2014 to an old Galaxy S3 released in 2012 -_-
