I've read on The Verge, that it's not a TFT display, but an IPS LCD display.
"XPERIA Z1 COMPACT section"
The true rival of all the Apple Iphones..... This is going to be a trend-setter. I was wondering why all the big players were going for large screens to define flagships.. Anyhow, glad to find a right sized phone with right specs. Thanks Sony!!!
Jin Hsu, 10 Jan 2014Sony said it used IPS panel not TFT, please, change that!TFT is the best for reading under sunlight i assure you.and stronger one
If this costs over 30k then I don't think people will purchase this rather Z1.
IPS is a type of TFT:
Same as TN or PVA are types of TFT.
So don't worry, be happy!

I just bought the z1 a few days ago and I'm loving it, but imma swap it out for the z1c when it comes out just because it's hard to text in it using one hand. Haha...

Finally a small yet high end android device.
Never thought someday I would say this but "thank you Sony."

Yes, it has an IPS screen but doesn't have an IR blaster. This really is a great compact phone! I'm getting one soon. :)

How many phones can compete with the Z1 Compact? (None. It outspecs them so hard that it's just out of everyone elses league.)
Does that answer your question about the choice of retail price and capitalism in general?
