This is clearly not a budget phone. I am happy with the HTC One Mini.
today i buy xperia compact lte version.superb phone with superb battery backup.camera quality no word for prove quality.superb snaps in low light and from camera also superb for video call
please be aware. unlike other xperia phones the z1 compact has video rec options at fullhd, hd and mms format....only and does not have vga format as an option ,,,,,,,,
what this means in terms of wattsapp...... to send a video via wattsapp the file size needs to be below 15mb......if you record a video in fullhd or hd even a 10second video will consume more that 15 mb.......mms format is very poor for viewing ...vga format was the only good option as one cld record a 1 minute video for less than 15 mb and send the same via wattsapp and still have reasonable good viewing ....this format is not availabe on z1 compact so you have to take the pain to change the format via some play store app and then send
the zi compact in now available at sony stores
priced at inr 34900 india
AnonD-222995, 22 Feb 201436900 is seriously overpriced.Its much less than in any other country where its currently available, in Northern Europe around 45,000 INR. Really, any other place people would sleep in line in front of the stores if they could get it as cheap as you do.
MoksXXII, 22 Feb 2014For those who are from the Philippines, z1 compact's already available online... check kimstor... moreWay too much for grey market units. In Sweden and Germany where phones cost considerably more those 2nd grade units sell for less in online stores, and in India the grade 1 supported units with Sony warranty sell for less.
For those who are from the Philippines, z1 compact's already available online... check kimstore, dbgadgets, widgetcity etc. price's at Php 28,000.
AnonD-209094, 21 Feb 2014On the other hand, wait 2-3 months and buy an oudated phone, when the Z2 Compact will already ... moreYou got a point...
But my point is, there are a lot of people who doesn't have the budget to buy the phone once its released. My point is, better wait than to regret.
I'm just a guy who is it techie and budget wise. I can afford the high end phones but for me, its always a good option to wait if you're not sure about the phone or wait when a good one will be available which suits your needs..
Just saying.. Peace! Mabuhay!
Tammy, 21 Feb 2014I got the sony xperia Z1 last month which is my first time using a sony, am a Samsung person b... moreYou destroyed 2 phones in just more than a month. Sounds like you're the problem, get yourself the uLGiest and cheapest phone so you can't complain.
What will be the price of this phone here in the philippines?hope not higher than the z1
very good but not works in equalizer audio set, if and put other eq to choose from the valve sound not works. when you to youtube and want possible to vary not become the sound.
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...
AnonD-209094, 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..?
AnonD-209094, 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.
