Someone, 27 Jun 2019I wanna buy this one for about $40, as second phone, is it worth it, and what about battery life? The phone is ok, the battery is ok, but probably not the best because most are really old now. If you can install ROMs, I'd look up the LineageOS ROM by 115sek on XDA, the ROM just got OTA-update support a few days ago. And the battery is not that difficult to replace. I'm normally not someone who repairs phones or stuff like that (even though I have 20 phones lol) but the Z1 Compact battery replacement was even easy enough for me because it was literally 2 screws holding it in place (you'll lose waterproofing though).

I agree with Mantas. Replaced screen once because of an accident. Also in 2018 changed battery. Still very good performing and very convenient to use phone. Even for games.
In July will be 6 years old as i use z1 compact, still with the android stoped at version 4.4.4, the first battery was changed in 2014, the second battery was replaced in 2019, i plan to use it for at least 2 years, this is the best Sony phone ever made
Now running 9.0 with LineageOS 16 and GApps stock package, still works flawlessly.
Just installed Android 8.1.0 as LineageOS on it. Works wonderfully. Only things missing with this phone might be a good camera and some form of biometric security (fingerprint, face), apart from that, this phone is still sufficient in 2019.

Very durable, dropped it into water several times, on the ground also, still working fine, and after 4 years it still keeps up.
Been using this phone for almost 4 years now and it's work perfectly fine when suddenly my baby step on it ^~^
Bought it in 2014. Still works great today after 4 years. Very durable battery if you're not on the phone all the time. I have to chrage battery only after 3 or 4 days.
Xperia, 14 Apr 2018Does anyone know where can i find a new one to buy?You can find in Amazon.com
I bought this phone in April 2014. after almost 16 months battery died and dropped from 80% to 0%. I replaced battery and works perfectly. After next 17 months battery died again. Great smartphone but battery problem is chronic. Battery lives only 17 months. In result of this smartphone is perfect and still working with Google Play and apps.
4 years of usage. Bought new battery from Aliexpress and replaced it after 2 years. Exceptional phone!
the phone works perfectly after 4 years of use, but as always with this type of batteries it did not lasts long-the battery failed only after two years of use and i have to connect the phone to the charger permanently in order to use it,otherwise the phone shut itself automatically.
