I got the sony xperia Z1 last month which is my first time using a sony, am a Samsung person but since the S5 takes too long to be in the market and my S4 screen just got cracked I decided to buy the xpeiria Z1, quite frankly its an amazing phone phone but it freezes some times which will make you switch off and on. Just today sometin hit the screen and a small crack was noticed not as much as my Samsung, I tell you the phone went gaga, there is virtually nothing you can do with it cos it comes on and does everything like taking pictures on its own, am kinda hating sony not for my screen but how the phone performs.
so I understand the screen is covered with a plastic film. it means that it will scratch easily. and if i remove it, the warranty is void, furthermore, the screen does not have the oleo phobic coating, which means that the screen will be a magnet for finger prints ....
This is a dealbraker.
good new for xperia lovers.sony xperia z1 compact is now available online in india on Snapdeal (Rs.36,898) and Infibeam (Rs.36,990) .the best camera with powerful processor.................
Still waiting here in uae to release this phone, I want to buy this from sony store or shop here and not from the grey market..
I will gonna but this phone today...I'm excited to hold this beast phone...
Anomynous, 21 Feb 2014But what other flagship grade phone cost max 30k INR? Its been well known long time that this ... moreAs sony's top leadership announced that this will below z1 and above z then what one will expact if z1 is 36k n z is 28k...is this really the case..?
Anomynous, 21 Feb 2014On the other hand, wait 2-3 months and buy an oudated phone, when the Z2 Compact will already ... moreI totally agree! I too been waiting for Z1 Compact and already set my expectation that its price would be higher than Z1 as it is the latest release Sony phone and one of a kind. So yeah I'm not waiting for 2-3 months for its price to lower down.
Gutt Grinder, 21 Feb 2014I do understand you even though I didn't own the phone.
This is one of the reasons why you ... moreOn the other hand, wait 2-3 months and buy an oudated phone, when the Z2 Compact will already have leaked, thats not a good idea too.
For example mainboard issues on Galaxy S4, you couldnt have picked that up after 2-3 months, and on Galaxy S3 and Note 2 it took usually 6 months before the mainboards started to die in big numbers, would have been impossible to pick up that problem 3 months after the launches.
Theres no need to wait, enjoy gadgets while they are new and fresh. Who would buy a one week old bread for 15% discount? I do think Xperia Z is a great buy but that has a lot to do with the horrible size of Z1, a problem that was apparent from day one, no-one had to wait 2 months then suddenly say "oh i didnt notice before, this phone is so big, is it?".
Virtruvian, 18 Feb 2014I had this mobile for exactly 2 days before I sent it back. The back really is letdown. They ... moreI do understand you even though I didn't own the phone.
This is one of the reasons why you shouldn't get the phone from the date it will be available. It is best that you wait for it about 2 or 3 months read reviews before you decide to buy. Because its really expected that no matter how amazing the phone manufacturer is, there will always be issues from newly released devices..
I just hope that Sony will get these issues fix, the flash bleed issue is a real pain by the way.. XD
Anonymous, 21 Feb 2014This is rediculus.. Its highly overpriced.,waited n waisted so long time for its launch..will ... moreIf I were you, I'll wait. Since Sony is starting to become like Samsung, spamming or releasing a lot of phones per year. Just wait until they will release the T2, E1, Surius and all the future Xperia's in the alphabet, rest assured the price for the Z1 compact will drop.
I not saying bad here, its just this will give us time to think if we should get the new phones or just wait for the best ones to available that will really suit our needs and budget.
Mabuhay at salamat....

Its been well known long time that this would be priced at this level, why did you wait to find out what everyone else knew already?
This is rediculus.. Its highly overpriced.,waited n waisted so long time for its launch..will move to other brand now...expacted rs 30k max and sony is just over estimating itself.. Bye bye sony..
antonyrr, 20 Feb 2014In India.. launched today at 37k. Such a shame Sony.. Expecting it to be around 30k. The price... moreSounds like someone trying to take advantage of the popularity, hope it will be normal priced soon. But i wouldnt expect 30k of your money, thats wishful thinking, it is after all a flagship grade phone. In 3 months it should dip down to or below 30k.

Z1 Compact is the one wi... moreThis is why HTC named the One simply One, because if you search about problems other people are having with it you will be flooded with irrelevant search hits about One X and One X+, after a while you will give up and this way HTC could prevent people from obtaining negative opinions about it. It worked, especially at first when One was launched, it was impossible to find much about it online since there were already millions of posts about One X and X+, so they will keep the name even for the new model, it will also be very successful at first, if someone posts bad things he has with the new One it will be drowned in hits which is about all the other One (X, X+, One, One Mini, One Max).
Success, this way they can control what the average internet user will know about their new product.
The problem with this is that its frustrating for people using search engines to get help when their phone has a problem but we already know how much HTC care about people with problems, Peter Chou has decided that those people do not exist and that they will go away if ignored long enough. And it worked, people with defective HTCs really did go away but the side effect that our favorite Peter didnt predict was that none of them will ever buy a HTC product again. The sales figures has proved beyond doubt that the ignore campaign was a great success, although very far from a financial success.
In India.. launched today at 37k. Such a shame Sony.. Expecting it to be around 30k. The price really is a deal breaker for me.. Ri8 now z1 is 2k cheaper than z1 compact.. Wierd!! How come this happen...

I never heard of the scratch at the back problem until gsmarena posted that the back us made of plastic(well polished though). Then you were in a hurry to say here that it had scratch on the back. Typical troll.
