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. :)
iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii llllllllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeee yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu sony!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Xperia Z and Z1 are good phones but too big for me (5 inch). I'm glad that I waited to the Xperia Z1 Compact (4,3 inch) and last but not least ---> IPS technology. juhuhuuuu. :)
Rene, 08 Jan 2014This is about Sony in general. Phones are great, but service in the Philippines is bad in case... morei beg to differ. im from the phils. too, and ive never had a bad time from any of their service centers. any.
dx user, 08 Jan 2014Bezel still too big, screen size actually just 4" Hmmmm....4.3", a large camera sensor, mind you,and this is water resistant..you cant have water resistance and small bezels at the same time..or at least not yet.
AnonD-209094, 08 Jan 2014Your handicap is not my problem, nor anyone elses, so do not try to make it mine or anyone els... morewow,such a small screen,and people are fretting about the pixel density?? start arguing if the screen size is above 5". lol.
imho, people who try playing high end games on small screened phones and bitch about how unsharp the display is are idiots.
Why is it that everyone heres tryna outsmart each other? Lol! Some people just have a lot of complaints and can never be contended..
BTW, great phone Sony! Way to go. Looking forward for this to hit the store. :)
Just need to wait for the battery test..specs are great and very good looking phone..This is what i want, i don't like big phones....
This phone has the potential to become a big hit in 2014 (like the HTC one) because it has top HW specs, perfect size for one hand usage, NFC, wireless charging, big battery, expandable memory, good screen res for 4.3 inches, waterproofing and one killer feature that no one matches today: 20mpx camera with hardware shutter button AT THE SIZE OF A COMPACT Point-and-shoot CAMERA!!! Unfortunately, usually SONY phones are too expensive and that will kill market share. I hope this changes...
