We need a review.If the screen is IPS and has IR Blaster then it would make in top 5 of year 2014.
xaz, 09 Jan 2014If the specs are almost exactly the same with a few drawbacks (smaller battery, thicker, lower... moreBecause z1 compact is with same processor but smaller display...its mean that z1 compact is faster than z1...smaller screen=less processing
If the specs are almost exactly the same with a few drawbacks (smaller battery, thicker, lower res), why retail price for z1 is slightly lower than z1 compact MSRP? It just does not make sense...
I really need one. It should be between 20000 to 25000. I love to buy. I want to be first customer of this phone
Come on guys, the PPI on this thing is thing is way_better_than_the_iphone_5S. Way better. Complaining about a PPI of 334 just shows how spoiled everyone is now, it's a great resolution for this screen size.
Z1 Compact and Z1S doesn't have a lot of diff. but its like GS4 and GS4 mini not a lot of diff. they just want people who cant handle 5.o inches phone to be more comfortable so they made this little great device
Do SONY smartphones get heated up during use ?? my friend had been using the Z1 and he sold it within 1 month. i'am really interested in Z1 compact . What about it ?
what about the battery? how long would the battery would last, it's non-removable? how many years and how can it be replaced?
Ooh! Very interesting design and so compact too. I would like to buy it. What about price? Has anyone experience about price?
Not TFT but IPS display. Supposed to be a killer phone.
Good chance that I'll get one!
W0W ! Iam really impressed by the spec.. Its not just better than samsung galaxy s4 mini or htc one mini, Its better than both original smartphones (SGS4 & Htc one).. Its really similar to the size of the iPhone 5s but the Sony Xperia Z1 compact is better .. Great Job S O N Y
It's better than any mini smartphone in the market right now, infact it's better than the iPhone 5s and ofcourse 5c.
Since Sony xperia z .. Sony is doing a great job. Well done !
This is a good phone, Im currently using Sony Xperia V and I hope that Sony will be releasing a Flagship for this phone which is a removable battery.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2014i beg to differ. im from the phils. too, and ive never had a bad time from any of their servic... moreIm also here from the Philippines [Cebu] and I never got a bad experience about Sony's service centers. I do admit that it sometimes takes time for them to resolve any issues about the devices, but you just need to be patient.
Very well built. Finally a smaller android phone with grt specs. Love the sony UI. Very beautiful simple plain and fluid.
AnonD-148628, 08 Jan 2014exact same question!!So Z1C has IPS which is also a type of TFT panel? Hahaha. Still a bit confused with these panels but one this is for sure - the Z1C's screen is great. Finally Sony has decided to release IPS on their international version. Happy for Sony.
I really hope this will get a lot of attention from non-Xperia users and a lot of critics. And hope that this will sell very well in the market. As the phone looks perfect. :)
