"TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors" I still can NOT undestand how a tech page could write this.....
TFT is NOT a screen panel.In the other hand, TFT is a Thin-film transistor, and almost LCD even AMOLED display contains a TFT...
Anyway the Z1 Compact has an IPS panel

AnonD-216520, 20 Dec 2013I am willing to pay for the Japan Quality of Z1F than the Mass Production type Z1Si doubt sony will put their name on the line by having different quality levels. paying more for same = stupid.
skyzo97, 28 Dec 2013It has high CPU and GPU , but screen size is small and it definition is not fullHDof course,it is a xperia z1 for people who do not want huge phones but want great specs.

Great phone.. can't wait for the release. S/Mini here means SMALL, unlike other phone's branding S/Mini would be SACRIFICE..

GSMArena with the review next :)
I'm also waiting for Sony to release this smartphone. But I really think we should be a little patient with them coz maybe they gonna release the phone with the latest version of android (KitKat) and maybe they testing the phone for any problems it might have. I think we should be a little happy coz its better buying a phone knowing its been checked for any problems than having endless problems.
aCatGameDev, 10 Dec 2013it could be around 600$....is it expensive for you guys ?? Define expensive? $600 is a lot, but if you want a high-end phone, what do you expect? I'm willing to pay for high end specs so I don't expect a cheap Samsung Sx Mini.
Better to have a delayed release than a faulty phone. I would have bought a ZR already, but after the consistent problems it has I choosed to wait a little more (hope Sony sees this). May be Z1S will be the one. Or may be Samsung will launch a well speced rugged phone after the "semi-rugged minitablet" S4 Active. Or maybe HTC will think about releasing a good rugged phone too. Until I see this my pocket will be closed for them.
really really disappointed, that sony kept fooling me since the end of august about the possible release of this phone :( and still another date in the future...
