Awesome phone. Hope it has the smart stay feature that galaxy and the LG G2 phones have.
it is very nice size but i am disappointed the battery is non-removable
Anik, 25 Jan 2014Note 3 is better than Xperia Z1 CompactHow is it possible to post something like that.. Does this look like a Note 3 competitor to you? Eye problem or are you simply less gifted?
Obviously people who want big displays does not care about Z1 Compact, just like those who want reasonable sizes and and are able to see things on a normal size display arent considering buying phablets. If that does not make sense to you then we have established that the second alternative is most true in your case. Something very different that we do not want can never be better, if i say i have a girlfriend you cant come and tell me that a boyfriend is better.

skyzo97, 26 Jan 2014this phone design is superb , less feature than Z1 but the price is so high .Specs are less??
The specs are exactly the same! Just lower pixel density! 342 conpared to 441 screen and 4.3 compared to a 5 inch display...
Battery life would be better on the Z1 compact because of its smaller screen...
So no big differences between the devices :)
Please see the specs before commenting :)

Anik, 25 Jan 2014Note 3 is better than Xperia Z1 CompactLol this is the funniest comment of the day.
Compare the mini and compact lovers, Sony is putting up a fight in this level. HTC mini, S4 mini and iphone 6 this June.
