I've been using the Z1 compact for months and love the phone. Will gladly upgrade to Z3.

AnonD-209094, 02 Sep 2014Lol, have your eyes checked. The difference is huge to my eyes thank you, i had a FHD phone an... moreI agree with you, except..."1.5GHz in Xperia Z was more than fast enough..."
It's not fast enough for 4K video recording/processing...
AnonD-98042, 02 Sep 2014well only xperia zl have less bezel than any xperia so not every xperiaCause that phone wasn't waterproof :/ wish sony did it again. It's cool to have the waterproof and all but I'm not taking it in the shower or out swimming anytime soon. Sad they have done a z/zl combo (no the zl2 doesn't count, someone was dumb and forgot to name it the zr2)
migotka21, 02 Sep 2014Red is pretty.Agree 100% I wish also a "royal blue" one and a copper one
This is a sweet phone.Sure gonna get this in time!Still need better quality from the 20.7mp camera.Come on Sony I know you can do better,stop study your point and shoots.Give your fans and the world a master piece in every aspect!!!Haterz gonna hate buh that's natural.Sony never follow the crowd and follow spec craze,QHD 64bit CPU.When apps and OS's could use such upgrades properly,then Sony will use it.Batteries could hardly make it,study great battery tech 1st.Sony is a great company and I expect great stuff tomorrow! Respect to every brand and tech expert,even haterz as well.Competition brings innovation and good tech cheap-ish:)Yea said enough!From the Caribbean tho,St.Vincent and The Grenadines to be exact.
I like the green one.
If that red will be more like orange in real life, it would make my decision even harder.
well only xperia zl have less bezel than any xperia so not every xperia
What I am seriously waiting for to be released now is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Lenovo K920, Lenovo Vibe X2, Huawei Ascend Mate 3 and the Nexus X from Motorola! I want the QHD resolution, the newest chipset like the Exynos Octa, Kirin 920 (Huawei), Nvidia's Denver CPU and the Snapdragon 805 but an 801 I believe will be enough for a FHD 4.6" screen like this Z3 Compact and with that, even if it doesn't have the latest CPU and highest resolution it can still compete among the best smartphones like the G3 from LG and the rest so I am going to wait for this too! Christmas will be my perfect time to buy a new handset! :)
AnonD-186627, 02 Sep 2014and yet the iPhone designs are based on sony.... shame on you :pThats not true, Jobs only stated that he wanted it to look like a Sony product, it wasnt a copy of any existing Sony product. And while it looked good back that time we cannot say the same today about the original iPhone, not very Sony if you ask me.
Anonym, 02 Sep 2014Apple seems to be doing pretty well and their iPhones are quite bellow 720p.I think we can agree on Apple losing marketshare percents lately, even in the USA, much of it is due to the displays. It is what i dislike most about 5s, text generally have low quality and in Japan they found that so low PPI would seriously affect the realism in photos. Pictures tend to look much more lifelike with higher PPI, even at 500 and 600 PPI the test subjects would notice a difference.
No Fan Boy, 02 Sep 2014720p on 4.5" is more than enough. I bet you couldn't see difference between 1080p and 720... moreLol, have your eyes checked. The difference is huge to my eyes thank you, i had a FHD phone and it was amazing. Now i have a 4.2 inch 768p phone (much better than 720p) and the low PPI is a problem, small text on webpages is very hard to read without zooming, and if you cannot see that then you do not have average eyesight, not at all.
For me FHD is the best that happened to phones the last two years, no doubt. But i can tell you what we DONT need, that is faster processors, the s600 and even the S4 1.5GHz in Xperia Z was more than fast enough. Those are useless specs to me, FHD is not, FHD actually makes a big difference.
That green is awful, i have to see it in real to judge the color exactly but looks like it has a touch of minty but its not mint, just worse.
I get the red one then but i hope it doesnt have the orange tint that two of the photos show. Colors always look different in real, for example i used to think Xperia Z in purple looked nice but only until i actually saw the real phone, it wasnt nearly as nice as it looked in the pictures.
And of course it must be Full HD, i used to have FHD phone but downgraded to 768p and it is bad, i have to return to FHD. i dont care to much about useless specs like S805 instead of S800 but for the one signle thing we use most on a smartphone, which is of course the display, i really care.
AnonD-209094, 02 Sep 2014720p = no sales. Apple seems to be doing pretty well and their iPhones are quite bellow 720p.
