Just bought it (Ukraine) and back cover appears to be cheap scratchy plastic, not glass. Already have some deep scratched on it. It is very easy to scratch, be careful.
This phone has no bezel,the phone is beautifully more than any samsung mobile.
Anonymous, 12 Feb 2014you are not the only person in this world... Yeah, the black front and its big bezel is really ugly...A white phone with white thin bezel like Samsung is nice

At first they had that same wrong info about end of Q2, it was obvious they meant end of Q1 (thats when i started to worry) and now, unfortunately, they have corrected it to just that.
Those online stores sell mostly grey market units anyway so they are not dependent on official launch dates. However i want official updates so i am not buying from any of those stores or in TriNoma. By the way, there were rumors about grey market Z1 Compact units available in Greenhills last week. Havent heard more about it since, may not be true.
I was hoping to be a dual sim, but unfortunately its a single sim only. anyways sony will upgrade it after some time when this one will start loosing its market. so i will wait till sony launch a dual sim with same specs...

Did you recieve that info from Sony PH or as well as the Online stores? you know... like...Kimstore/Widgetcity I even sold my Zl too early as I thought z1 will be locally available Feb. I really like its size and design plus the specs wow!

wen is this coming to india and what wil the approx price be? waiting for this phone frm the time i got the news..:*
Weak frame with glass on both sides. Looks nice, a little bit, but nobody can repair. No cover and screws for easy repair like other phone. Very fat also at 11mm plus case 15mm. Lìke pig in pocket. Not happy with thìs phone for modern age and fashion.
Will get this for the GF, as this is just right for her... Love the specs
I would like to ask, If i will buy this phone from USA when i come back to Greece is going to work the same?
ger, 10 Feb 2014"- Xvid/MP4/H.263/H.264 player" So I assume this cannot play VP9 videos from Youtube?Maybe it can't play on that format but there's a way to get around those limitation. Pc companion, loader droid, etc will automatically format video once you download it.
The overall phone is perfect, but only thing which i dont like abt the z1 compact and even the z1 is that they look good but not same color on the front...just imagine how beautiful it will look if its same color front and bac..black in front is boring
When will the sony Xperia Z1 compact wvailable in Rwanda? I need it.
