These cracking issues, did they occur mainly on the first batch of z1c released or do they still occur on the present crop.
Been using this device for about 5 months now and it has been a great experience. For those who have and are going to get this device, I suggest they take out the pre-installed anti-shatter film of sony and replace it with a tempered glass protector. It makes the screen less prone to scratches. Software experience wise, download the Google Now Launcher app in the Play Store. It give a smoother and better experience that the Sony stock launcher.
My only gripe about this phone is that it still has a terrible viewing angle, specifically when titled at a certain angle. The pictures get washed out, very bad for letting a coupe of people view content on your device.
I haven't had this issue of the screen cracking and I doubt it is even true... Even cheap glass will not just crack mysteriously.
Gt, 31 Oct 2014Look for info on self cracking screen! Beware sony deny any issue but thousands have had phone... moreThanks guys for opening my eyes to this failure. I'm a huge fan of this phone shame i have to bow out of getting it. If you are not convinced just google search yourself. The number of issues is disturbing. Plus the fact repairing the screen if such happens is more like half the phone price. I cant take such a risks.
Look for info on self cracking screen! Beware sony deny any issue but thousands have had phones screen cracking when in pockets or on charge even when using, believed to be heat related watchdog and which investigating! To make it worse this phone will not work at all with even the smallest crack in the screen

Anonymous, 27 Oct 2014Why did you change from pink to white. Whats wrong with pinkWhite is better looking and is my fave color. I got pink cos i was forced to at the time since there was no stock at my place. Only pink and lime lol.
Been using it for months now (before pink, then white) it is still in top form . compact phones of sony are really the best.

darjanad, 16 Oct 2014If you want all that power, but in a compact frame, choose the Z1C; i've bought it, and i don'... moreThanks Darjanad or sharing your honest experience.
Now I think I should go for the Z1C.

Shaun, 21 Oct 2014I had the same problem. but it didnt stop with my cameraObviously the Kitkat 4.4 is not very compatible, I'd recomend reverting the original software with a factory reset,
I was bought Xperia Z1 compact in the month of June'2014, recently i was update the android version 4.4.4, form B.no: 14.4.A.0.107 to B.no: 14.4.A.0.108. camera has been freezing after update the software.
regarding this issue i was sent my quarry to Sony mobile they give some idea, but that is really helpless.
i fully disappointed with camera performance..
