pt020, 02 Sep 2014The scratches on the back side of the Z1 compact were on the protective layer and not the glas... moreNope. Unlike the "full size" Z1, the Z1 Compact has a plastic back (not glass). Sony themselves have confirmed this and is a little well known fact (only the Japanese version had indeed a glass back).
Anomynous, 02 Sep 2014720p = no sales. 720p on 4.5" is more than enough. I bet you couldn't see difference between 1080p and 720p with your naked eye.
When 720p is much easier on the battery.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2014It will be 720p = better battery life. 720p = no sales.
xperia z3 compact is very good. All the specs are superb. In, fact it is more compact than xperia sp. battery will really improve in z3 c. only thinking about the camera, hope sony will improve the camera quality, even that 20.7 megapixels g lens has seen in z1. 16GB storage is enough, if it doesn't have a lots of bloatware, and has an option move apps to SD card :)
pt020, 02 Sep 2014The scratches on the back side of the Z1 compact were on the protective layer and not the glas... moreOk, so the scratchy back is gone. But I hate idea of front pointing speaker grill. That is one ugly idea. This idea is for kids and phone gamers, not for me. Best loudspeaker place is on the bottom side.
Samy, 02 Sep 2014Is that a shutter button??yes, all Sony phones have that.
Maskakos, 02 Sep 201432gb and 2600+ battery and it's instant buy Unfortunately it's probably going to be 16gb + microsd slot just like the flagships. 16 gb should be made illegal these days.
Hope this one has an actual glass back (not high-gloss plastic, like the international Z1C).
Didn't care much for the looks of the phone. Only cared for performance and one-hand usability. That's why I chose to buy Z1C. Will skip this one since it's only a marginal improvement.
I dislike big phones, I'd prefer usability over ha ING a bigger screen. But since all the other manufacturers phones dumb down the specs for their mini version, I look forward to Sonys offerings, having a kicked specs sheet with a compact and easy to use form factor. I hope the viewing angles are improved even better than that of the Z2. Sorry if English isn't good.
I think bezels got slimmer, compared to prrevious maodels.
Especially the top bezel
wut, 02 Sep 2014Simply stunning looking phone. This will more likely kill the i6, not galaxy alphaAlpha is direct competitor for Z3C since both are Android Smart phones. Apple Customer buys the product for their OS not for the look or Spec.
Marcell, 02 Sep 2014LOL... sony recycles an iPhone design from more than 4 years ago, makes it uglier, adds bigger... moreMuch clearer, and the fact that Shin Nishibori (who's japanese) was responsible for that design reinforces the point, indeed. Apple also got Sony's help on the engineering for many of their products.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2014you must be an LG thin bezel fanatic. But G3 is the laggiest flagship, poor battery and overhe... moreI agree. G3 flopped for me.. I own a Htc One m8 which has some bezels i admit, but its because of its speakers (best in any phone by far).. Thinking about getting Note 4 when it hits my country.
