yerk, 12 Nov 2013haha.. its not that sony can provide tft screen only,it just that they are providing long last... moreYeah, except that when you look at it in percentages you rapidly realize that one isn't failing any more than the other, they are just selling A LOT more and you are just one little guy having to deal with a Goliath that sells almost in bulk.
If what you claim is true (about your work) then you should already know what is the true champion of faults by now, that apple doesn't come pre-bitten for no reason.

yerk, 12 Nov 2013haha.. its not that sony can provide tft screen only,it just that they are providing long last... moreYou never heard Sony screen cracked which maybe because Sony phones are sold in smaller quantity than Samsung.
I used Xperia Neo V but now used Nexus 4. They are indeed released in different time, but LG's screen do have significantly better viewing angle.
Now this one is a good mini phone but i would like to see some Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro with a slide out qwerty keyboard.
Kroom, 11 Nov 2013Well, Xperia ZR is also quite capable small flagship, although ZR has 4,55 inch screen and rum... moreme too hoping for zr price reduction.. if it is equal to samsung s3( 22,000 INR) i will buy zr..but if z1s is 27,500.. again my mind will oscillate..
Totally awesome, small, powerful, and has expandable storage, I will pre-order this in a heartbeat.
zamroni, 11 Nov 2013It uses TFT screen because that the only thing Sony can do. Sony's screen is no contest agains... morehaha.. its not that sony can provide tft screen only,it just that they are providing long lasting mobiles, i am working in a mobile company, handling mobile services but most of the lime, calls that we are recieving are from samsung Gal users ,using Gorilla Glass 2 and 3, screen cracked due to overheat inside the pocket or being in-charged, been 3 years here, never heard of sony screen got cracked due to overheat.
It is midnight here in India. I have been waiting for this true mini flagship since the Z1 S rumor started, and waiting for this day (Nov 12th, 2013) as Sony is about to launch this today..
I pray - this should be an international version..
I say the first proper "flagship mini" was the Xperia ZR. Not exactly a "mini" per se, but well fitted with the Z's specs and a smaller form factor.
zamroni, 11 Nov 2013It uses TFT screen because that the only thing Sony can do. Sony's screen is no contest agains... moreYou do know that the viewing angles are fine on their tv's right? They're losing money with their tv's because good enough at a cheaper price is what people want nowadays instead of the best at a premium price.
Well, Xperia ZR is also quite capable small flagship, although ZR has 4,55 inch screen and rumored small Z1 has 4,3 inch one. Who knows what the price will be but at least there is a hope that Z1 mini will reduce the price of ZR and as far as everyday usability goes, ZR is more than decent performer.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2013It will also fail to achive pricing of s4 mini and htc one miniArchive ?, Why would they want to archive pricing ?.
Oh, you mean achieve ?.
I think the z1s is a sure winner when it comes to the market. It's the z1's little brother but with same hardware as the z1 but with a 4.3 inch screen.
They will sell by the truck load.
Another proven winner from sony...

A wide viewing angle is key.
the3dsgeek, 11 Nov 2013this is a proper mini, nothing stripped out, except for the screenWord.
