Like iPhone 6, looks terrible, even at only 4.7 inches it is longer than many 5 inch phones, thats bad. Xperia Z1 is a great example of bezels gone out of control, disgusting phone.
top and bottom bezels still too big.... Droid Mini, the only true powerful mini
redX, 30 Jul 2014There is already a transparent back cover !!!what do you mean by transparent back cover? something like a protective film?

Sony still no words mentioned internal storage capacity. I keep my Xperia Acro S year by year for this reason. Don't they think 8 or 16GB storage can handle apps for premium users?

Saurav Ghosh, 30 Jul 2014God damn, I wish it was 4.8", can't really go more low on display size than my Moto X.this is a phone for people who prefer compact but powerful phones. in fact, even 4.5"+ is a bit stretching it. wish i could see a 4" or 4.3" 1080p phone.
mobile phones used to be compact you know. still got the job done.
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2014So confused, the z1c bezels look thinner, the bottom bezel seemed like it increasedWhat other symptoms are you experiencing? Pulse is normal? Try to lift up both hands simultaneously in front of you, if you can its probably not a stroke but i advice you to take it seriously when you experience sudden vision problems.
xperia phone is the worst phone i ever seen, it must be worst than the Chinese cheap rate smart phones....................jj

A top speced phone that is NOT phablet sized! I have been waiting for that for yea... morewhere have you been for the last 8 months?
there's already a pocket sized flagship: the Z1 compact

Androidaholik, 30 Jul 2014there is a phone just like that, it was released last year, called the sony xperia z1 compact -_-No, Z1C is not a good phone, low res display for a high end phone and cheap back panel plus the dreaded flash bleed. And worst of all, the shatterproof sheet on the display, after a while it will annoy you more and more, it gets scratched, is impossible to keep clean and gives an uncomfortable touch experience. Compare that to any phone with oleophobic coating, they are so much better to use, they dont scratch and stays clean all by themselves.
cheebc, 30 Jul 2014why u want a "mini" if u prefer bigger screen? go get z3 thenThats right, and 4.6 is already on the big side for a compact model. Incredibly enough you will always have someone criticize small phones for being small, there was even a guy who wished the Z1 Compact was a phablet, and he was not trolling. But thats what weirdos do, being weird.
Anyway, what Sony need to do is bring back the 4:3 option in Superior Auto like Xperia Z, i refuse to have to deal with changing settings all the time, i found the scene detection on Xperia Z to be extremely helpful. The alternative is to have more failed shots due to using manual mode without any settings at all, not acceptable of course. And even if i was weird enough to be willing to crop all the photos down to 4:3 i would end up with somewhat low resolution, around 6mpix. I dont understand why Sony is doing this, they dont force us to use 16:9 on their cameras, then why on phones?
And thats probably not the only downside of this phone, Sony has a nasty habit of incorporating dealbreakers in their phones, for example the low quality back panel of Z1 Compact. Wonder what they will do this time.

Seriously, what is it with everyone wanting thin bezels? Yeah, I don't want them too large, but I don't want my screen touching the edge too much, thanks. Imagine holding it, your thumb will constantly be on the screen. Everyone moaned about the bezels on the Z1. Why? I have it and see no problem at all. It looks better. Soon, people are going to start demaninding a phone with a screen and that's literally it.
