do not buy this phone its not waterproof water resistant water or anything or liquid anything for that matter Silva drink on phone stopped working didn't work for 7 days Sony will not under any warranty and takes 3 weeks for you to mail the phone in for them to even look at it and you get no loner and if there is liquid inside your warranty is voided
the phone is not waterproof now liquid proof not any proof don't spend $500 on a paperweightfurther research on Google now shows how many countries are banning the term water resistant or water proofSony's false claims of putting it in the ocean not happeningand if you get liquid on it your warranty is voided
A new update is rolling now. Build number 14.4.A.0.157 (Android 4.4.4 - no Z3 features, just bug-fix), I'm really sure (99%) that it fixed the camera issue. Even (problably) 1% the camera is crashing, it restarts automatically and it start to works again.
It felt from my hand today at pocket height
still working great as before
no scratches ...
Really superb this compact, premium design with aluminium great look
its a superb phone.. glad i buy it..will lag but almost RARELY. mostly due to android problem.. no heating issue except it will get a little bit hot after heavy gaming.. advisable to take off its case when playing hd action games for LONG hours(2 to 3 hours). normal usage totally no problem.. audio is great, loud enough for normal person(unless you are deaf). the display is very bright, can see the screen even under bright light. camera however not really amazing at low light.. but if the camera is treated as a 'phone camera', not a 'professional camera' it should be catergorized great.. sony did a great job producing this compact monster.. suggest anyone to buy it if feels that the z3c is too expensive..
Been using for 6 months. Love the battery backup and fast performance. The only problem I had is when I launch camera it said not available, but after upgrading to latest software hadn't faced any problem. Now the problem is I lost the USB flap cover in my room and can't find it :(
This is one of the best phones I've handled so far and believe me, I've tested more than 12 smartphones with different brands just this year. Z1 compact is top quality. Galaxy s4? Forget it. Battery doesn't even last 6 hours with heavy usage. This little monster right here in my hands can last 2 days and a little over a day with heavy usage. Want a bigger screen? Nexus 5 will do nicely. Never lags. You just need to tweak some things to make battery last longer. Want an even bigger screen than that? Go for Note 2. I know it's not the latest handset out there but the performance, screen, and battery are great. But anyway, bottom line is, for me z1 compact is the best phone yet. Well worth the money.
[deleted post]Don't go for xperia sp as it'll not receive any more android update and u have to stick with jelly bean 4.3
But m2 already received 4.4.4 kitkat and may have chance to get 5.0 too..
shantobd, 04 Nov 2014Which one would be best between Sony Xperia Z1com.LG G2, and Samsung Glaxy S4???Forget s4
Buy g2 if u like big phone
Buy z1c if u like compact that fits in your pocket
for me z1c is best
Which one would be best between Sony Xperia Z1com.LG G2, and Samsung Glaxy S4???
is the quality of z1 compact is decent in lowlight and same result as the z1?. and does the flash bleeding still exist?
Every member in our country's xperia group page does not have this cracking issue myth. It maybe user's fault and they just blame the phone or maybe brand rivals agenda... Android authority's drop tests prove that xperia phones are durable.
shantobd, 02 Nov 2014Which one would be best between Sony Xperia Z1com.LG G2, and Samsung Glaxy S4???Don't get S4 if you like cameras it takes ages to start,,,then shot to shot time is appealing for a flagship phone.
This was one of my favorite phones ever. But there was something that bothered me with it, it didn't have any pause feature while you were recording a video. :( What's up with that Sony. You only had record and stop. That was really annoying. Nevertheless, it's a great phone :)
