answer, 24 Mar 2014What exactly are the diffences aside from the size compared to the Z1?Its much better than Z1, especially the battery. The only disadvantage is the low pixel density display at 342 vs 441 PPI. Please note that PPI is a 1-dimensional value and therefore doesnt really indicate how big the real world difference is. Pixels are 2-dimensional so to compare we have to compare the Square of the PPIs (342*342 vs 441*441), that gives Z1 a stunning 66% higher pixel density.
Apart from that Z1 Compact does not have any disadvantages over Z1, and it more than makes up for it with superior battery life, better viewing angles (and better display all in all). The excess size and extremely low battery performance of Z1 makes it a very poor phone, if Z1 Compact is too small for your taste then wait for Z2.

The only problem is that since Sonys tray is not attached to the phone its easy to misplace or lose, but being like that its also cheap to buy a new one, and the sim can be inserted without the tray in emergencies.

In emergency, if the tray is lost or misplaced, you can still use the phone by inserting the sim directly. The trays are easy to find online at low prices.

In any case, i never used that one much on Samsung phones i used, it isnt that practical, its so much better to set a long display timeout. One will press the power button anyway when finished, before puttting the phone back in the pocket, right? So it doesnt matter how long is the display timeout.
The problem with SmartStay is that if you read at for example the bottom of a page without zooming you typically have to be a little closer to the phone to be able to read the small fonts and then you have to tilt the phone in an unnatural angle to let SmartStay see your eyes, very impractical.
