AnonD-746591, 23 Mar 2018Does this take good photos?Hi there,
Yes it takes very decent photos when u select manual option. U have to play with it a bit and final result is reliant to lightning conditions and your patience in setting the right numbers. Intelligent auto sucks. It takes images only in 8Mpx and most of the images are overexposed.
I'm proud user of my Z1 compact for almost three years. And it's great device even 4 years after it's release. Everything is smooth. Just changed my battery 6 months ago. It's not waterproof anymore and I have to be little patient during the manual mode as mentioned above. But I would buy it even today for a good price. Don't get why Sony stopped their support at Lollipop.
The phone is unusable after lollipop update. Sony cant make good smartphones
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2017Bought it for Â€ 40 from eBay, though it has an issue with the battery I donÂ‘t fully know yet... moreThis week I finally replaced the battery. ItÂ‘s working perfectly. If I sometime get behind the truck to install a custom rom, I may install Android 8.1 on it.

I am using this phone for full 3 years now. Replaced battery myself 1.5 years ago (ordered from Ebay with water-seal strip for back cover). Never had overheating issues and I always charge it on some cool metal surface (washing machine, PC case etc.) so that battery stays under 30C. Aluminum sturdy frame is a huge plus!
Will buy X Compact shortly - faster, little larger screen and much better under sunlight, better battery and Android 8 Oreo support.
Z1 Compact will be a great and reliable backup phone.
My Z1 compact is about 3,5 years old and still working just fine. Next step is to change new battery and back cover. ItÂ’s hard to find such compatible phone as low price as this was.
very very very disappointment about volume of music. earphone type selection is not really works.Other then it really little dragon.
have been using this phone for 4yrs... love it. couldn't find an option to replace it. handy, powerful, never experienced any hang, occasional restarts alone that too during heavy usage. the problems are now battery holds fr half a day, display broken(Sony service center says inr9700 for display), poor loudspeaker volume. can anyone suggest an alternative for this beautiful phone.

The best phone I have ever owned. Two and half years and no problems at all. Phone is having very heavy usage of web surfing, navigation, music, video playing and still battery holds a good charge. The only thing I need is more RAM memory to handle big apps. Now looking to upgrade to xz1c.
The worst phone I have ever had. I will never buy Sony phone again. Poor signal, loosing signal all the time. Not recognizing a charger. It's not waterproof. It started leaking. My friend had the same problems with Sony xperia m.

I've been using the phone for 3 years now and its really great. my only problem is that it saves all the passwords which compromises security especially when banking. How do I remove the that in the memory, disabling the "autocomplete " function
AnonD-716740, 18 Nov 2017Why is that? I got 2 batteries spoil while using 5.1.1 so i replaced the battery and flashed stock firmware which is 4.3 to see if the battery can last longer. It performs better now ex. faster application start up
