Internet, 10 Oct 2013because japan demands a higher standard then the rest of the worldyou are talking BS!
if there is a strategy behind this than it's about testing.
japan is a big lab where companies figure out in which way the development should go.
if the z1f sells good in japan than we will see real mini versions of the flagship phones all over the world in 6 - 12 months.
Looks like the previous petition for top tier internals on a relatively compact sized smartphone by GSMA worked.
Kudos to Sony for giving consumers what we want.
You know what? If this Sony Xperia z1f will be made also available here in the Philippines it will sell alot. Sony's Xperia Series is the 4th best Smartphone brand here in the Philippines..
I Love Sony and I Love My Xperia L =) . No Probs at all.
I have the iphone 5 and I tell you THIS is the only device that I would consider using.
Nicely done Sony!
The main reason for using a smaller 4.3inch screen is making the phone as small as possible. Looking at the picture, it seems Sony just put 4.3inch screen in Z1-sized phone and thought its a job well done...

Samit, 10 Oct 2013This would be the perfect phone , fits easily in your hand with all the good hardware. Hope it... moreThey aren't going to give it an IR port for the Eu version. They would only ever do it for their home market one. This is Sony. They will only ever release devices with IR ports on tablets and japanese variants of flagships, along with the rare occasion of the ZL.
please release it here In the Philippines...plssssssssssssssssss.....
Price it right in India. Say the same price as the s4mini and this will be the best seller. I guarantee you that
