Yesterday I got this phone as a birthday present but I'm going to sell it and keep my old legendary Nokia N8 running Xeon Belle. Yes the Sony is better on speed, battery, os, but I read some bad reviews about camera and photo album problems. And its not gorilla glass, so easy scratching, fingerprint magnet. Camera is just a megapixels trick to attract buyers, not impressive quality.
jay, 11 Aug 2014can any one tell me what to buy? z1C, z1, or z?I'd go for Note 3 or LG G3. I want bigger screen now... :(

camera sometimes having problem,it freeze after taking photo and doesn't save thru either SD card/internal. Anyone having this kind of problem? pls help
your mobile phones are effective and strong. however, most of the time the brightness of the screen is a little below the mark compared to other equally nice smartphones on the market. we are okay with the xperia z1compact except that the screen brightness is substandard. sony xperia team, please do well, now, to enhance or increase the brightness of the xperia z1compact and a number of others. we wish you well in your works. thanks to all.
sony, i dont like the gallery of this phone. always giving me a thumbnails whenever i play some videos. I have to delete it.

Both front and back cameras are good. Also so far ive had it nearly a month. It hasnt froze on me yet. It went off once by itself but it had overheated and id been on it literally nearly all day. I skype, i facebook, i whatsapp, i bb, you name it. The battery life is great to i can listen to music for hours take pictures. Phone calls are very clear on it aswell. And the camera on this the 20.7mp is good ive took a few random shots and shall do so on holiday. But yes its a great phone :) hope i helped
Going over from Blackberry 9900 to this phone I must say that I'm utterly disgusted!Plenty of apps but normal userfriendlyness of BB or Samsung is not present in this phone.If you are Afrikaans speaking this phone will drive you mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It does not recognise Afrikaans as a language and the predictive text will drive you insane!Common features like volume control of notifications and size of wallpaper,soundprofiles and available ringtones cause massive frustration!
honey, 12 Aug 2014There are 3 phones infront of my eyes.. Sony z1 compact ,htc one mini2, htc e8. Which one i ch... moreE8 is a totally different story.. At d moment its d highest specd smartphone from htc.. even m8 can't beat it. If u want a "mini" phone than the z1c is by far the ultimate. Not only it has three times more powerful CPU than one mini 2 bt it also has 2gb ram! Only 1gb ram makes one mini 2 vulnerable.. It's ram can get low and phone will hang. In z1c u don't need to worry about ram crisis. snapdragon 800 CPU and 2gb ram also indicates that z1c will perform better in future versions of android. And one last thing: U don't need to change brand.. Htc and Sony r d most reliable brands..

pros: size, water proof, pretty cool design, good perfomance of display, fast.
cons: sometimes system is not responding, turn off with no reason, after you can not turn it on for a while, easy to scratch, earpods is not good. sensor is average.
This phone does have impressive specifications but Im wondering if the camera really produces nice output. I have always been a fan of camera phone released by Sony before they start producing smartphones, and got impressed by iPhone too esp in low light photography. Samsung S3 was a little bit a disappointment.
So I would like to ask if the camera in this device really stood up to its specifications or does it produce pictures with quality of just like any other smartphone.
