zed, 04 Feb 2014I won't be the one with testicular cancer from having my phone's microwave antenna in my front... moreI doubt you are military when you dont have basic knowledge about radiation, military personnel are around radiowave/radiation sources frequently and are educated about this simple stuff. With the exception of one big country in the world it is well known that cellphones cannot harm you and if they did your six o'clock would be in jeopardy.
Myself, 04 Feb 2014Learn ya some about ionizing radiation. You're not going to get cancer from cell phones.There are quite a few policemen who got testicular damage from placing their radar guns to detect a car's speed in their lap while they wrote traffic tickets. In the US people were warned against holding phones up to their heads and were told to hold it at a distance and use the loudspeaker or text instead. The medical community has issued warnings about microwave radiation from phones. I''ll take their advice.

Anonymous, 04 Feb 2014Then you should use a landline. Try harder Mr US marine.Since this website is for xperia Z1 compact comments, are you saying I should connect my xperia Z compact to a land line? I don't think that phone has a land line connection. I'll just keep using my xperia GO in my back pocket and wait for Sony to come up with it's next more advanced rugged phone.
Marines like me working in avionics really are the best and the brightest.

[deleted post]In addition, there were reports of brain damage caused by the microwave radiation emitted by hand phones held next to the ear. This same microwave energy may cause testicular damage in males with the phone carried in front trouser pockets.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2014Im talking about the front pocket of pants, not shirt. Does your shirt got back pocket?The front pockets of my trousers usually contain keys and coins which would scratch and damage my new xperia Z1 or Z1 compact phone.

Anonymous, 04 Feb 2014it seems youre the only person who puts a phone on back pocket.Yea, Being a U.S. Marine has always made me require hardened equipment. That is why I like my xperia GO so much. I guess the Sony Z1 & Z1 compact phone is more for the vest pockets of Businessmen kinda like the pocket watches of the 1800's.
bal pol, 03 Feb 2014why Sony not using gorrilla glass & led backlit display Dude it is backlit by led. It doesn't have a tube inside.
I never said I sat in my Sony Z1. I wouldn't recommend sitting on either the Z1 or this Z1 compact. In Hong Kong I walk with my phone in my back pocket. When I get a seat on the train I take it out of my pocket & surf. When I sit at a restaurant I take it out of my pocket and put it on the table. I was so sad when my Sony Z1 failed with such light pressure on the glass and it looks like this Z1 compact has the same frame and glued glass construction. Does the Z1 compact have the same clear tape over the glass as the Z1. That tape scratched really easily an so did the sheet protector. My Note 3 has a beautiful scratch free screen even without a screen protector but is not waterproof.
