I really dont think Sony would go for such an ancient tech. I have used Galaxy Mega 5.8 and Galaxy Grand and som Galaxy Tablets, the battery drain from the display is disastrous, in addition to being inferior to sonys old displays on low brightness, forcing you to increase the brightness of the PLS, making it drain the battery even faster.
its safe to rule out this possibility. And i dont think Z1C has a VA display, its also somewhat inefficient in letting backlight pass through and would drain the battery faster, plus MVA/PVA are too slow in response time, motion blur will be a serious problem in fast games, even slower games like TR2 would struggle.
Gutt Ginder, 01 Mar 2014Indeed this phone is purely overpriced, its even more expensive that the Z1 "P24k". ... moreZ1 is a bad phone, dont compare to Z1 Compact. And anyway the Z1 cost more than 30k in sony xperia concept stores, thats the price you should compare to then. Z1 Compact will be only 27-28k in regular stores WITH Sony warranty and updates.
Never buy in Xperia Concept stores, of course.
Gutt Grinder, 01 Mar 2014I really don't own this device but if I were you, I'll wait for the Z2 instead for this. Also ... moreThe Z2 is way too big and the Z2 Compact is far far away.
There is no alternative to Z1 Compact, its the only phone in its class and therefor worth buying. I would not hesitate if i had xperia L and had the money to get the Z1 Compact instead, go go.

I use an Xperia L right now and I ... moreI really don't own this device but if I were you, I'll wait for the Z2 instead for this. Also you cant deny that there might be a chance that Sony will release a Z2 compact in the future.
Just be patient, we all know Sony is good in releasing devices in compact sizes. Just like what they did to their gaming consoles.. :)
AnonD-171830, 28 Feb 2014overpriced!Indeed this phone is purely overpriced, its even more expensive that the Z1 "P24k". Here in the Philippines this device cost "P26k" from online retailers [kimstore] and if this will be available in Sony shops I guess it will be "P32k" or "P30k".
For that price I'd rather wait for the Z2 or the Z2 compact in the future...
I said the Z2 could (keyword is could) be using PLS, not the Z1C. It uses MVA-TFT (most likely) or PVA-TFT.

1. need a router to make it possible.
2. Yes, most phone have that feature.1. No you dont need a router, the phone will work as a router/accesspoint.
You are actually a little funny, do you think we bring a router when using laptops from the car or other places away from home or office? Of course we use only the phone to provide internet for the laptop. No idea what you used, nothing at all maybe?
Can someone who has this phone temme if it is worth buying? I use an Xperia L right now and I wanna know if the Z1 compact is worth giving up my Xperia L. Thank you in advance :)
