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..
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2014Seems the Z1c will be getting the 5.0 upgrade.yes it'll. Hopefully in the first Quarter of 2015
About the cracks: it doesnt seem prone to cracks caused by sudden force like dropping/hitting it, but mine broke in my hand (yeah. really!) when i wanted to use it after it got cold one night (around 5° celsius) and aparently i'm not the only one who has that issue (check http://conversation.which.co.uk/technology/sony-xperia-z-cracking-phone-screen-replacement-repair-warranty/).
AnonD-320727, 20 Oct 2014Can anyone advise how durable is the screen if its accidentally dropped, i tried to google but... moreThe build quality is 1st class grade.
I dropped it twice and once had a very serious accident on my bike,just got away with few scratches while I had stitches !!! :P
Hi, I have been using this phone for like 6 months and still running amazing, about the cracking I have no any problems at all and I have dropped a few time unwanted of course. The screen looks like new I'm using it without any hard case it only have an anti scratch protection on both sides
Can anyone advise how durable is the screen if its accidentally dropped, i tried to google but found no videos on drop test. Any advice from the current users,what is the best protection and whether using tempered glass is advisable.
Sony_Fan, 20 Oct 2014I have read many comment on this phone regarding the self cracking issues. Some users reported... moreI think cracking issues were exist in previous models(before may)
still i'll suggest to use anti-screen protection in back and front and cover,if u ar buying this beast
I have read many comment on this phone regarding the self cracking issues. Some users reported that their phone cracked after months of used. Some after days of used. They claimed that they havent dropped the phone nor put pressure on it.
@User for many months. How is your unit now? Is there some truth to it. I'm already confused. Some claim its true and other claims its not(invented by Sony haters). I have always wanted to buy this beast but Im very hesitant after reading/hearing those issues. Can someone answer me honestly? Please speak from experience.
Why not pink? It looks by far the most attractive of all four color varieties

Hi I recently ordered the Z1 compact from Amazon. I have not seen the phone yet but heard the Z series of Sony phones have self screen cracking issues. Just wanted to know if any of you have faced such a problem with z1 compact, specially for people in India as we have hot and humid climate. Thanks
