james2312, 22 Oct 2013Hi Chinmay, I agree with you. I think Steve Jobs was right. However only as an example I saw t... moreGoing from 5" to 4.3" is a 25% screen area reduction (assuming identical aspect ratio). So a 25% battery reduction should not change the figures as much (please check before charging how much is the screen consuming.....for the rest, the smaller battery indeed matters, but for the screen no). So what I mean is that 25% less battery will not reduce runtime by 25%. Maybe 12%.
Evolution as I see it: let's put bigger CPU, so we need bigger battery...but wait,to keep slim, we need bigger screen...ok, bigger screen needs an even bigger battery....an that's why phablets are born (yes, I will use the term)
With that 720p display this device will top any benchmark...
rizal, 28 Oct 2013Can they put dual sim stand by.yes, we want dual sim high features phones, if this phone is available with dual sim, its will be in the top of sales in many countries.
You tried to get in our minds and you did it well!
Revolutionary phone.. I think this is the Beth word that fits in this phone.
Sony is going to change the rules!
Thank u that you're gonna bring this awesome phone with this screen size!!

Finally! A proper small phone... well... smaller than the standard gigantic size...
If they would have got it earlier in sept that would be head to head with I phone and people who wanted to buy buy phone due to size matters most would have distracted from apple and could have been great for sony's sales.
I think they brought this one before big z1 and as z1and z1large and z1ultra .
champakali, 24 Oct 2013screen size could have been betterIn what way could the screen size be better? I think (if people don't want those big 4.7" or 5.0" screens)the screen size on this phone is ideal. I also think alot of people will ditch their iphones to buy this phone.
This is perfect piece of hardware , hope will be well optimised with software to kill the rivals . Bring it on soon sony before November 15th . I will buy two I am rating this one over the lg g2 performance wise as this is most suitable pocketable size for skinny jeans and all also looks pretty.
ingold, 21 Oct 2013aww , with all of the specs like that i hope the price of z1 mini is below the htc one miniAnd of course you want a free limousine and Russian caviar and Dom Perignon champagne included with that? This is a one of a kind phone, the only true mini flagship, of course it must be priced close to the bigger flagships. Maybe $50-60 below the Z1.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2013PPI does not matter anymore when you cross the 330ppi barrier as you need to hold the screen d... more"held at arms length"... Wow, the ignorance is off the scale here. If you need to hold your phone at arms length you are so far sighted that you are virtually blind at normal smartphone eye distances (when not wearing reading glasses). That's really a serious eye problem you got there, I doubt you could see the advantage of 150 ppi over 100, you must understand that its your personal problem and not everyone else? Even Apple in all their arrogance has defined smartphone eye distance to be 10 inches, about 3 times shorter than yours.
