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.

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!

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...

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?".

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....
