Anonymous, 03 May 2014You have Z1 why u wait for z2? Its stupid to change a phone in 6 months.Maybe yes, maybe not. It depends on your contract.
It's not uncommon to see (corporate) contracts which allow the purchase of a new phone at a much cheaper price and the sale of the previous one at regular used market price, which in the end actually turns into a profit.
You read it well, I said PROFIT for changing the phone.
Anonymous, 03 May 2014Dude, it's not about the display. The Xperia Z1 Compact has a 720p display too, but a SD800, 2... moreI think it's because they are afraid of the inherent pricetag that comes with such a small device with those specs with that build quality. (For those sizes you usually only get one of the two, it's either specs or build quality).
Let's not forget about the marketing strategies used in a not so distant past (by manufacturers such as Samsung) to promote Android against the iPhone (which has always been around that compact size), where "screen real-estate" has always been the #1 differentiating factor.
It starts becoming a "mixed-message", even if sanity would point out the Xperia Z1 Compact as the best, most portable and most appealing Android out there.
Anonymous, 03 May 2014Symbian phones have dual stereo speakers since years agoYes they had once but not anymore and there sound was not awesome just loud . Can't compete with HTC boom sound .. if you talk about dual speakers then China mobiles even have 5 to 6 speakers but they produce loud voice not great audio
Saurav Ghosh, 02 May 2014It's not the duo camera but the 720p screen instead of 1080p which will fail this device.Its mini device and it will fail If it have 1080p display cuz mini can't have big battery .. don't know what people think of them and declare a phone is fail. Come on man use some sense
The difference between Z1 compact and the other company's minis is that the Z1 compact is positioned as a high end device while the one mini, g2 mini, and s4 mini aren't.
SCULA, 03 May 2014you are a kid. all hd tv broadcast in europe and usa is 720p, not more, only japan have 1080p ... moreYou need to get your facts right.
Sky TV broadcasts in the UK, which last time i checked is part of Europe.(HTC think its in a world of its own come update times though)
Sky delivers broadcasts in 1080I resolution though which is more than 720P
Saurav Ghosh, 02 May 2014Lol, you watch a 32" TV with 720P resolution and find it great, so I don't even care what... moreyou are a kid. all hd tv broadcast in europe and usa is 720p, not more, only japan have 1080p and 4k. it is very expansive to upload an 1080p broadcast on satellite, this is why all hd broadcats are 720p. read something. do you need 1080p on 4,5" ? are you spiderman?
Tarcisiorm, 03 May 2014I just don't know why EVERY post the people complains about the cellphones. and so many times ... moreDude, it's not about the display. The Xperia Z1 Compact has a 720p display too, but a SD800, 2GB RAM, and a 20MP camera. Why can't other manufacturers make a phone like this?
Actually I used to love HTC for its combination between finishing design quality and spec. It made me easy to choose my smartphone after tiring waiting for Android's Nokia. But unfortunatelly my last phone is Sony Xperia Z1, neglected HTC One after a serious thought. And guess, I do not impress with either HTC One (M8) nor this Mini version, instead I am waiting for Sony Xperia Z2 release in my country, Indonesia. I just think that HTC is still trying to fight againts market trend and force their own will. It might be succeed, but it also can push HTC to dissapear from this smartphone battle... As it is said, follow what consumer want or create new consumer need!
Willing to pay top dollar if they can squeeze HTC One (m8)into 4.5" form factor, I believe many "one-hand" users out there prefered, like the i-Phone size. I was flumbling with my 5.5" trying to receive call by one hand among other usages...
I just don't know why EVERY post the people complains about the cellphones. and so many times with dumb commentaries...
Of course a cellphone with 4.5" which is not a flagship won't have 1080p display. If you want that, buy the flagship. Because this one is for people who doesn't need a nerd-high DPI, who doesn't need the very faster processor. It means, for almost all people who only want to check their email, use social networks and to make calls.
If you want the very best performance, the very best design, the very best UI, you need to pay for that.
Are you serious you think that? Snapdragon's 400 is waaaaaaaay better than Nvidia Tegra. This one won't have its awful battery, HTC One X doesn't have 13MP camera, nor dual speakers.
