I can only see one online store in the Philippines selling this phone. As per Sony PH it will be available by the end of march. What's taking them so long to released it in the PH? I can't wait 'till March so I'm buying it online (grey market). I don't care if the phone just comes with service warranty and not the manufacturer's one. I Love you Z1 compact! lol
AnonD-227883, 17 Feb 2014But if you have so many grey market stores I can understand your cautiousness, still if I were... moreWell here is a problem!because in my area it can't be found exposed.300.000 people in this city and they do not even have a Z1 exposed,they have only a model,a dummy,that is lame.Don't ask me where I'm from please!So..all the option that i have is to order online.The store has a showroom but the model is not exposed there ofcourse.Alright,alright..I'll find one somehow and I will comeback with new impressions,I hope!
Anonymous, 17 Feb 2014Oh really?Yeah!That's how I feel about it!

AnonD-1034, 17 Feb 2014Sony the King !Gimme a break. Sony is one of many electronics manufacturers not your.favorite football team. I enjoy this forum to find how the device works over time. Let's not turn it into a pep rally.

In March to September there will be several phones with similar specs from Apple &.HTC with a more durable & reliable design. We''ll see from GSMARENA how they go head to head with this "compact".
Even in Cambodia the phone shops don't agree to carry this model. They just shake their heads.and point at the unsold Z1's going for under $540 and remaining unsold. All Sony Z model phones are "dead in the water" due to poor design & poor warranty service. I own a Sony smartwatch, and some other Sony phones but putting the Xperia V display in a plastic/tape covered glass glued frame disappointed us all.. Advertising should introduce us to the phone rather than coax us to buy a phone that can take pictures in shallow unchlorinated pools.

You're basing your assumptions on other people's opinions. The camera has loads of settings and can be tuned for better quality pictures. Seriously the only way you'll convince yourself is through personal use. So go to a nearby retailer and try it out in your own hands. That's how I decided to go for the Nokia 700 when deciding between the 700 and 701 two years ago.

I keep checking news for its release every now n then...I guess i am in love with this phone..
Overpriced, 17 Feb 2014Overpriced! It's price is higher than Z1 here in the Philippines. From what particular store you are buying?
Of course,in my country all the stores are grey market stores. As well,higher then Z1.Is it suppose to be higher,i think not!But..that's ok,they can keep it!
why is the status on this phone coming soon to india for the past 2 months? seriously sony,u should consider releasing it everywhere before trying to correct problems n shit...please release this mobile soon sony...have been waiting for it like forever
Overpriced, 17 Feb 2014Overpriced! It's price is higher than Z1 here in the Philippines. Not in any official price, it cost considerably less. Maybe you are referring to overpriced import units sold through grey market stores online or privately.
