AnonD-209094, 04 Mar 2014Either he will buy a USB wifi stick (very cheap) if his PC doesnt have wifi (wonder who would ... moreWhy are so st_pid? Study his inquiries, then you should realize that he is new to those things. He was asking if he could use internet on his phone through pc.
I'll explain !
He has a pc with internet connection. Then he wants to use internet using the his pc connection. WiFi stick is more expensive than a router, and router have higher connection capacity than a WiFi stick.
AnonD-78335, 04 Mar 2014I've been waiting for such powerful device for 4 years at the same size. BUT the problem h... morebattery of z1 compact is superb.two days back sure with use of internet and camera no words for superfine camera 20.7 megapixel and front camera also very good for video calls .phone performance overall superb and dnt see any bug in last build 114 and also sony give 4.4 kitkat may be in april not sure but within these month surely z1 compact recieve this update....iam in technical dept of mobiles in uk london any querry welcome
Great phone!!! works like a charm... amazing performance.. using it since almost a week.. battery lasts for 2 days easily(on 2G and wifi)... Best phone for its size, nothing beats it... maybe a little pricey, but WORTH IT!!!!
Outdated before it gets out of the starting blocks. The waterproof s5 and more practical & durable 5s with fingerprint security allowing instant access to the phone are tough competition for this z1 compact phone to beat especially with the high price tag and absence of availability from local shops honoring Sony's warranty. And no way you want to buy this compact without a warranty.

know the facts before speaking
Theres no denying it, i actually want the Z2. Its too big but the pixel density of Z1 Compact is tipping the scale in the wrong direction.
Dont know what to do anymore, maybe i just get a BlackBerry Z10 (very cheap now) and wait for the Z2 Compact which will hopefully have a Full HD Triluminous IPS display.
Very hard decision. Anyone else changing their mind after being impressed by the Z2??
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2014Read it again and again and again. Btw, Pc normally doesn't have WiFi.Either he will buy a USB wifi stick (very cheap) if his PC doesnt have wifi (wonder who would buy a PC without wifi but ok...)
OR he will connect the usb cable, go to the phones settings and enable USB tethering. Works great, drivers are automatically installed.
But a router? Wifi routers cannot connect to a wifi hotspot, a router IS the "hotspot". In that case you would need an ad-hoc setup (which some but not all routers support) and thats VERY messy i would say, plus it cost a lot more than a USB wifi adapter (which is not messy).
Anyway, who cares when the USB cable tethering works perfectly, anyone would chose that if they dont have wifi adapter in the PC.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2014Read it again and again and again. Btw, Pc normally doesn't have WiFi.Stop it now, just admit that he dont need a router, you were wrong and dont have to be so desperate in denying it. If its so important to you why dont you tell us why he need a router? What will he use it for?
Already pre-order it for my region with great value... ^_^

BUT the problem h... more I have this phone.. let me say it's fantastic, very powerful well built with a great camera and lovely screen.
The battery lasts 2 days easy with moderate use, if it had 3000 or 3500 mah it would be very much thicker and in a larger body, for the size of the phone 2300 mah is more than enough
I've been waiting for such powerful device for 4 years at the same size.
BUT the problem here is Android is a battery whore and the battery in it is small.
should be 3000 mAh - 3500 mAh
Meeu, 01 Mar 2014It's not overpriced. . . it's new to the Philippine market that's why it cost a little more th... morei saw on a site somewer that its now down to 22k php. just give it a few months and it'l be the same price as the ZR is now.
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2014Please read carefully what question I'm answering. I did, and no you dont need a router, what on earth would you use it for?
However i came to think of it more and maybe this guy doesnt have wifi on his desktop computer, i think that is rare nowadays but it happens i guess. In that case he will use a USB cable to share internet connection from the phone to the PC.
