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.

leon, 24 Jan 2014sony is the BEST!!!Note 3 is better than Xperia Z1 Compact
I have been waiting for a long time for this kind of a phone.
My requirements was
1. Max 4.3" Display size
2. Android OS - or can use Android applications
3. Could get one full day real usage battery life
4. 1080 recording
5. TV out
6. USB OTG
7. Expandable memory
8. FM radio
9. Good camera
10. Non-proprietary 3.5 mm audio socket
11. GPS with GLONASS
12. Secondary Camera (HD preferred)
13. 2 GB RAM
14. 1.5 GHz Dual Core
15. LTE (Optional)

There is no such phone till today
SGS 2 has proprietary 3.5 mm audio socket
SGS 4 mini doesn't have TV out & USB OTG

I dont know much about LG
So I will go for it
I hope the price will be slashed within 3-4 months

Smarphone!!! Not a phablet!
tswvntuj, 22 Jan 2014for those who have the japanese variant which is the z1f, could you please tell me the loudnes... moreXperia A is japan Version of Xperia ZR not Xperia V, Xperia VL is the Japan Version of Xperia V.
If ever...this will going to be my first ever Sony Android phone. Hoping I wont get disappointed. Hi-end specd in a compact body does ring a bell for me.
I like the specs and the looks! I might covert from iOS to Android!
price please? btw which 1 is value for money among the following: Z, Z1 or Z1 Compact?
for those who have the japanese variant which is the z1f, could you please tell me the loudness of this phone? I have an xperia v (xperia A in japan) and im kinda disappointed of its speaker sound but using headset is fine. One more thing, ive heard that sony has been using 2 types of screen panel for z1f, do you think that z1 compact will be released with 2 types of screen panel too? I think its fine if the quality is the same, but in case of z1f some says that the one with JDI is much better that the one with AUO in terms of brightness. I really like this phone. :D
