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.
If the IP rating is X8, it should be capable of continuous submersion instead of just 30 minutes.
AnonD-232510, 11 Feb 2014Ok .. What about white color ???I believe you can find some more detailed info about that in the review done by another website, im not allowed to mention the name here. starts with ph and ends in rena
AnonD-232510, 11 Feb 2014What about it's back cover is it glass or plastic,, and what about flash bleeding is it tue ??... moreiPhone doesnt have nice black level so why you want to compare it? Check the review, Samsung has the best blacks, Z1 Compact is number two, Z1 on third, HTC One on 4th and iPhone finish last with the most greyish blacks.
What about it's back cover is it glass or plastic,, and what about flash bleeding is it tue ?? .. And what about white color .. Can we adjust it with the white balanced tool in the setting ?? After we modified it ,, is the white color become as the one in iPhone 5s ??
And what about black level is they as beatifull as iPhone 5s ??
Saw some foreign language user reviews about the battery, loosely translated:
"Used my phone a lot today, been on for 11 hours and battery is at 76%. My old phone would have been less than 30% by now."
"Just light usage yesterday at work, played some music, wrote 8-9 text messages, made 5 calls, a bit internet surfing. Came home a quarter to midnight with battery at 92%, other phones i owned could not do this even if only at standby"
And also want to remind that we had some Z1f owners from japan visiting this forum who also said the battery is excellent. And its just the beginning, all new Xperia flagship grade phones will have this great battery time.
A nordic carrier selling Z1 Compact since before launch has it among its bestsellers, TWICE! Both the black and the Lime made it to their top list. Really well done, but must remember that the Nordic market is mature and has always been shifted towards high end and been a scene for early adoption of new trends, in less matured markets the majority of buyers are still looking for large screen phones, whats new in many markets is already old and boring in northern europe.

Anonymous, 10 Feb 2014Z1 compact measures (Sony's method) the part of the screen taken up by the return icon and hom... moreYes you are right that the screen is measured inclusive of the return and home buttons. But you have to understand that these return and home buttons retract when taking or viewing a 16:9 picture hence giving you the full 4.3 inches.
MoksXXII, 10 Feb 2014Also been waiting for it to be released in the Philippines. I was advised by online stores tha... moreLast of Feb or early Mar is a good bet, and its just in time to catch the Xperia Sirius announcement first, see if its worth waiting for.
Z1 Compact is selling well in Europe but availability doesnt seem to be a big problem (except for some colors) so theres no reason to think that Sony has to delay launch in some markets due to supply problems.
AnonD-232061, 10 Feb 2014I want to know how you claim that z1 compact screen seems smaller than iphone 5s screen while ... moreI didn't say it smaller I say that everitnig ( text , net photo ) it's look smaller . I don't know how got explain but it's what I fill.
Regarding camera - I know it's crazy , but on my elbow I have dark shot problem and on the black everitnig is perfect
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2014Its highly unlikely to be software. My homebrewed theory after studying the cam setup of Xperi... moreYou are right bro, the shatterproof sheet will bleed the led flash light, through this sps film light will pass to the sides of the camera lens. I've had tested this also with one of my friend's sony xperia z1 the bigger sibling of sxz1 compact and obsereved the camera performance at low light conditions and at no/zero light conditions with the flash on/auto and that was it, because the two phones shared the same sps treatment by the manufacturer. Better if sony can replace the back cover sps film with a led flash light cut out and a free of charge including installation/fixing to the phone. I simulated it also with other couple of phones, covered the led fash light with a screen protector through the camera lens with a cut out on the lens tested at low light and no/zero light conditions now same thing happened with the two xperias. And sony may also redesign the glass back cover to make a cut out for the led flash light on the glass itself and put a silver ring or in any material encircling the led flash light to prevent from flash bleeding. The same design on the silver ring of the camera lens of the phone itself. Thanks, cheers.
