Finally! Another Sony I can look forward to. This is what mini, compact and mid range smartphones should be. Reduced size but not the software and hardware specs, including the camera. Yeah!
hamed r99r, 08 Jan 2014xperia z1 compact has IPS panel,please correct thisDon't worry, IPS technology itself was based on TFT display.

Anomynous, 07 Jan 2014Do they even have a name for whats wrong with you? The whole point of this phone is that Z1 is... morehey, that is my opinion.. i dont have xperia z1, but i wait for z1 compact because of its small screen, the rumor said the price is about $580 and xperia z1 is about $570.. so i will buy z1 because the price isn't too different.

Who says iphone has great ppi? Steve Jobs did, and some aging opticians he asked for their "expert" opinion, aging like himself.
We are now back to 2012 flagship ppi on Sony phones, this is exact same as Xperia S. 2 years setback. Its not a dealbreaker but it is the main disadvantage of Z1 Compact, for far the most of us.

The truth here is that you have very poor vision, because 300 is pretty pathetic and far from sharp. Go buy reading glasses and see for yourself, dont be in denial about your shortcoming.

Finally, Sony is releasing a super-phone internationally. I think Z1 Compact is the concept succesor of Japan-only Xperia SX SO-05D, meaning "the smallest and the most advanced phone in the world". With Z1 Compact they proved we can have the same high-end "juice" in smaller glass = big flavor in a small package. Kudos Sony!
Are the non removable battery is better than the removable battery? sorry, my knowledge about phone specification is low,can someone tell me..

You do realize that it is already alot higher than the iphone 5s' ppi, don't you? So it's already above the Retina Display! How could you say it's pretty bad?! Do you have a Superman's eye or something?!
