[deleted post]For some reason Xperia cameras seem to get worse with every new model released in the last 2 years. I don't know what the heck Sony are trying to do. It's not like the camera is the essential killer feature of any phone, but I still use it, and I don't see why they used to be able to build good ones, and now not any longer. I would really like to replace my Xperia with another Xperia, but if they don't manage to get their cameras in order, I might have to look for an alternative.

It looks nice on photos, but if you see one in real life, you notice how cheap their body and mechanics really feel. I don't think Apple or HTC would be happy about your comparison.
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2014Sony Z1 compact or Samsung S4.mini. they both have the look and feel of a household appliance ... moreI cant believe my own eyes. What a comparison, since its well known that Delorean has several times been awarded the world's worst car. Worst of all is that you are right, HTC really is garbage in a nice wrapping.

I think stores in Megamall will release the phone the same time as Sony concept stores will. Still a bit vague on the actual release date, sony FB page just says late March,

Try iphone or HTC One. They have the look and feel of a Delorian sport's car.
Dr RAJA, 08 Mar 2014Probably you held the Samsung mini? Otherwise you wouldn't say this is cheap plastic!I was holding the z1 compact. Classy phones are metal and gorilla glass not easily scratched plastic covered glass in front with a clear plastic colored black on back. Like I said, it looked like a plastic phone to me & not something I would want to show off.

ritesh you are correct zr z1 compact diff 10000 .price does matter
i think its the perfect phone...i would reject 2 iphone 5s for this one ( iphone 4s owner )
does this phone has ips lcd of tft lcd , there are many conflicting info on different webpages
sup, 09 Mar 2014thanks buddy ///////have you bought this phone....i have seen it at the store .looks good........ moreHi Sup,
No I haven't bought this phone , I am not in India Now, but I was having a eye on every Sony Xperia Phone, Somehow I was not satisfied with the features offer and the price offer (internationally not only in India).However I was impressed with the specifications bundled in this small compact phone. Its totally personally choice though please don't consider my thoughts if your choice is different. If you keep aside camera / Processor and physical appearance (including screen type) of phone nothing has been drastically change in sony xperia Compact Z1 with Sony Xperia ZR. If you remember after launch of sony Xperia Z (Feb-2013) after few months sony launched Sony Xperia Zr (Jun-2013) and as the matter of fact the Zr was actually a mini version of the Sony Xperia Z same camera, same processor , same RAM , Same GPU ,close to same batter life difference was with screen resolution Full HD (1080) compare to HD (720) that's why it was mini version. So its my personal opinion that if give a chance i will go ahead with Sony Xperia ZR rather then Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Saving all most 10,000 INR. Apologise to Z1 Compact fan boys.
shree, 09 Mar 2014which best samsung s4 or sony z1 compactBoth are great phone.
cgel, 08 Mar 2014the price is 23k here in philippines,,,,,and the xperia z is 21k,,,not bad,,though i like both... moreTrue. Intact I even expect it to be above 30k in Philippines. But price went far lower than I thought. Gonna get this phone for sure. Then dive when I arrive in my province for summer vacation. I have bad experience going to beach leaving my phone on cottages. But this one, I'll take it alone while swimming.

sup, 09 Mar 2014some one please help......on gsm arena it say that this phone z1 compact has 4g......however c... moreHi Sup,
This is for you.
Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is an 4G enabled phone both internationally and the version launched in India.
But You need to understand that the frequency of 4G that is deployed in India works on different Bandwidth as compare to most of the other countries. Carriers in India use the TD-LTE (Time-Division Long-Term Evolution) standard compare to FD-LTE (Frequency-Division Long-Term Evolution). Or in simple language 4G in India support 2300 Mhz of frequency in Band 40 whereas Sony Xperia Z1 Compact support 4G of 800/850/ 900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 in band. 1,2,3,4,5,7,8, 20. So my dear friend the bottom line is that in India sony xperia z1 compact is available with 4G support but will not work with 4g frequency of India. So Sony need to make a new version of sony mobiles which support 2300 Mhz freq in band 40 Or Indian carriers must deploy 4G infrastructure which matches with the international standard. For more info none of the 4g handsets available in Indian market support 2300 Mhz frequencey other than iPhone 5S A1530 and iPhone 5C A1529. So any handsets which claims it is 4G enabled must follow this 2300 Mhz frequency rule else it will can not be utilized for 4g Support atleast in India and atleast for coming 3-4 years. Let me know if you need any further details. @ Rit..
