GSM has finally updated the screen spec from TFT to IPS LCD. Viewing angle is better in Z1C than sony flagship phones.
Anonymous, 13 Mar 2014I count all phones sold from unsealed boxes as second hand. Being the only z1 compact sold in ... moreUnsold? many here been wanting to buy on official sony store. eagerly waiting.
Gam arena does a great job at filling us in on the latest out of the box new phones. I like to read these opinions on people who have used the z1 compact device for a month or more. Has sony provided kit Kay yet? Is it true that low light pictures are grainy? Does it look all scratched up with normal use? Does it have a good resale value if I don't like it?
i used this phone about two weeks.. it's excellent battery,very good screen,excellent call sound,very good speaker sound,excellent use one hand and it,s phone you will be not seen like it.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2014Why would someone get a secondhand Z1c for 550? brand new only cost 580-590.I count all phones sold from unsealed boxes as second hand. Being the only z1 compact sold in a street shop in the entire city usually means it was a display model or someone tried it out for a few days and sold it back to the shop in another country and then it made its way to Kampuchea. Sony phones are sold here in unsealed boxes unlike Samsung where the shop owner allows the customer purchasing the phone to break the seal. Still new or not this model remains unsold at $550.
Samsung is better than Sony in features....
Sony is better than Samsung in build quality...
And performance depends on the processor, chipset and rom....

I have one for a months , original !!not a copy , and it's look like old phone .
I can tell you that the front panel is jus a glass ( very soft ) and the back is plastic ( low quality )
For me it's not a premium phone and in Belgium it's very low demand for this model.
BTW the prise is already going down .
I post my on eBay on low prise and NOBODY is interesting .

We cant force anyone to like girls, and we cant force him to like this phone (i know noone can force me to like boys, same thing). What we CAN do however is rest assured that he would never buy this phone anyway, glass or not glass is obviously not the problem, he is trying to make a big deal out of it simply because... Well, because he can.

You must have a terrible taste for beauty.

Overall, it is one extremely classy looking device, particularly in white.
The build quality is a debatable aspect of a gadget , I like the heaviness of this phone when held in hand and the aluminum sides give it a really premium feel , reminiscent of the iphone 4 and 4s .
This is easily one of the top premium feeling phones in the hand , also sony sticks their own screen guard on the phone which other users are mistaking for the easily scratch-able surface . If you dont like it just peel it off and the glass beneath is pristine and very much scratch resistant
Let us not even compare it to the samsungs and the likes of it , the only phones that can be compared to this in build quality are the htc one series , the iphones 4 to 5s and the polycarbonate single shell construction nokia lumia series . But then none of them are water proof and will work just fine after an accidental drop in the pool or the bathtub
Or are they ?
