For those who don't know in the Philippines... the phone is already available online since last week and priced at around 24-26k... most online stores carry it... still waiting 'cause dropped big time from 29k last week to 24k the lowest as of the moment.

Its a midranger with a high end chipset, just like the useless Nexus 4 was, and has very horrible battery life.
And i understood that Sonys official price for Z1C in India is 35k but if you want to use highest price for Sony and lowest for other phones it sure helps get your point through.

I got Z1 and its amazing device ... Z1 Compact if you prefer normal size phone .. and its battery life just better than z1 ... so its up to you in the end coz not much diff.
guys do you think all te features of z2 like 4k would come on xperia z1 compact or even z1 ?? i own a z1 ...all answers would be welcome..thanx in advance..
Gadget freak$, 25 Feb 2014Can any1 plz suggest me whether i should buy the Z1c or the Original Z1.. Both the amazing si... moreBuy the Xperia Z1 Compact. Its more comfortable to use and its more faster than the Z1 because of its smaller screen

Both the amazing si... moreDepends what size is right for you.. i prefer the Z1compact it can be used with one hand and does not cover your face whilst talking or if the price is right go for the HTC One which was voted '' the best smartphone 2013''
Addition: it is possible that the screen type could be PVA-TFT, as this is a Samsung technology, and there is a "S-LCD" alliance between Sony and Samsung.
Interesting note, if this is true, it's possible that the screen on the Xperia Z2 is not a standard IPS, but Samsung's proprietary PLS technology.
Either way, cool screens - cool phones!
aroy, 25 Feb 2014Totally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got at... moreIts good phone and there is no phone in market with similar specs at price below this....its direct competition is Iphone.
Moreover price should come down in month or so
aroy, 25 Feb 2014Totally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got at... moreDo not worry prices will come down after 2/3 months as usually happens with all newly launched phones. The fact remains its a great phone with the latest specs and solid build quality.. only HTC One matches it.
The screen type as i have come to find out is MVA-TFT, which is an alternative technology to IPS.
It allows for much better angles and color reproduction than TN-TFT (which is used in their former Z series phones), fast response times, and arguably the highest contrast ratio of any TFT...including IPS.
A well made screen of any type will be enjoyable, as i see in my Xperia ZR, but a better technology frees up the need for software compensations and/or raises the ceiling on what a device can do. The Z1C has a screen that has been regarded as the best so far (bar Z2) of the Z series, so regardless of the technology implemented, it's still awesome.
Phones are here to HELP us enjoy life, so love life my friends!
Can any1 plz suggest me whether i should buy the Z1c or the Original Z1..
Both the amazing sibling flagships of sony are available now at nearby Sone Center..
Cant choose one of them.. Which one will be Value for money..?? Help..
how on earth the ''talking'' time on 3G networks is nearly twice as that of ''2G''???
Anomynous, 24 Feb 2014Now look at that, you have the alternatives ready already, then all you need to do is go and b... moreTotally agree. Expandable 64 GB space. A 4.3 incher screen. That's the primary reason I got attracted to Z1C. But my point was that the better features in this phone is just not worth the big difference in price compared to others in the same category.
And you can never say that the price is cheap just because you see 45k when you convert your currency to INR. 37k is still damn expensive. It's the most costliest phone among all 4-5 inch phones in India, after Iphone5S.
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2014Neither of the two is with IPS panel. Go check Sony website..Z2 uses IPS Panel!!
