Any news about price drops? Im looking forward to see how much this one will drop due to the arrival of the "Z1 Compact 2", aka the slightly overclocked version of this one they call the Z3 Compact (not sure why, it doesnt really upgrade anything, just overclocked).
Hope to see you posting here guys if you see Z1 Compact have a price cut where you live.

Hey. I am using Z1 Compact from like 4 months now, ( been using a Galaxy S4 before and i wanted something smaller ). I can say it's a great phone, it doesn't lag at all, camera it's great, i've made alot of pics in water, i droped him in the swimming pool, no problems at all. The battery lasts 1 day and 12 hours with 4G activated all the time, and like 4 hours of display on.
Overall it's a great phone, no lag or freeze at all.
The only issue is the "default screen protector" which scratches like hell, so.. who is going to buy this phone, buy instantly a screen protector and u wont have any issues with this phone. Good Luck choosing !
Can freezing problem be overcomed? Somehow... Please write your experience...

Does anyone have a problem such as lagging, bugging? I have heard that phone sometimes freezes when camera is used and then it is necessary to restart the phone. Does anyone experience that kind of problem with KitKat or Jelly Bean? Thanks!
[deleted post]After a few days in a pocket remove half the protector and see the difference in the two screeb parts, if you still cant see it your eyes are too bad to use a compact smartphone anyway, buy a high contrast large font phone for the elderly with cataract.

Anonymous, 30 Aug 2014hey guys i am looking for a good phone and so far i am cut between sony z1 compact and nexus 5... moreIt's a great phone go for it.
I had it for a month and it works just fine...
The only problem I faced was that it gets heated when used for long hours playing heavy games or watching videos but so does the IPhone..
Don't expect too much from 20 mp, it's almost the same as the 8 mp of this phone. But even that 8 mp cam is remarkable, Sony did a great job in it's software
Never tested it in water, someone please let me know if it really works fine in water...
Anonynous, 28 Aug 2014Actually Ray had a good successor, the Xperia SX was similar size and kind of high end phone w... moreThanks for the info bro! I could have bought xperia u but the lack of sd card support was a deal breaker for me not to mention the lower pixel cam and i needed at least 1GB ram :)
