M and M, 30 Jan 2014I just don't get people complaining about this; it's a consumer society people, you use a phon... moreThe answer is simple; if you run out of battery juice, and with Android you *will* because it's too bloated and power hungry, at least you can swap out the battery and carry on working. With fixed batteries you can't do this and are at the mercy of whatever tiny battery has been installed.

Z1Compact on sale in Switzerland for 499 Swissfrancs (aprox 420 Euro)

the_seba, 30 Jan 2014That's a bit of a rip-off. In Poland, the Z1 Comapact costs around the eqiuvalent of £40... moreYou're comparing Poland to the UK. Prices depend on cost of living. So why would that surprise you?
Mr Grumpy, 30 Jan 2014Doesn't make a blind bit of difference, with no removable battery, this handset is pointless.I just don't get people complaining about this; it's a consumer society people, you use a phone for 12-24 months and you're supposed to get a new one. No wonder why companies don't want you to play with the battery any more; after 2 years your phone also gets slower due to new software and services, so the battery gives you another push.
And if you want you can still replace the battery for every phone, it's just a bit harder / more expensive, not impossible; you can replace it once after 1-2 years and be happy. So where is the problem, u miss playing with your phone cover??
In my country Z1 costs 521$ but with 2 days warranty because this is how things works in my country ... this Z1c is an expensive smartphone

Philippines, it is expected to be priced at 24-26k. That's 400-420Euro. It's a neat price, talk to store manager and you'll get additional discount or freebies, that's everyone should learn, how to negotiate. Btw z, z1, and zr just got a price cut around 15%.
That's a bit of a rip-off. In Poland, the Z1 Comapact costs around the eqiuvalent of £400 from a certain brick-and-mortar/online-retailer store. I'm a bit amazed at the fact UK prices are higher as per usual they're not.
