Stanislav, 07 Jan 2014That is the idea of the phone to be smal ... and why the f*ck you wont full hd on 4.3 screen ... moreThe ppi is only 342, which is pretty bad, gives somewhat poor text quality and very jagged lines in 3D games, clearly visible even for people with less than average vision. And Adreno 330 has more than enough performance to push 1080p. Since this phone is already the size of a 4.5 inch phone it should have used Sharps 4.5 inch Full HD display.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2014The screen on the Z1 is 5" and the compact's is 4.3!Wake up genius, we talk about Z1s. Read the post and understand it before you reply.
This is about Sony in general. Phones are great, but service in the Philippines is bad in case you need it. The attendants are incapable and not very courteous..
mile1, 07 Jan 2014the best mini model4,3" mini?? There are phones NOT mini tablets!

Is there a possibility that a 60 fps video recording will come with a software update, or is this defined by the factory settings of the Bionz processor?
Will this have IR Blaster?
If so this is the best smartphone of all times(in my and many others opinion) because it has big specs in small package.If u don't like the xperia ui just flash a version of vanilla android(but wate! The differences are allmost unnoticeable!).Personally i like the other android skins(curently i own GS3 unrooted) but i'd like to get this phone if the price is right(which is sad because will surely not).
skyzo97, 28 Dec 2013It has high CPU and GPU , but screen size is small and it definition is not fullHDThat is the idea of the phone to be smal ...
and why the f*ck you wont full hd on 4.3 screen ? to work a lot slowly ???? it has 360+ ppi...
The price in UK is $700. I hope it drop when it arrive to US Amazon, because the Z1 price is $600. The most logic would be if it cost $480-$520.
That black front panel with big bezel is so ugly...Do they have designers at Sony ??
Was dying for this phone since 2013. But got shattered as I really cant compromise with the size factor. I thought this would be as compact as Xperia ZR but its actually smaller than ZR too. 4.5 to 4.7 inch is just a perfect size for everything.
Best mini phone I have ever seen. Hats off to Sony. I just don't like non removable battery. It's a deal breaker for me.
