AnonD-292993, 10 Aug 2014Can any one Advice me to buy Z1 Compact or notAs an honest user of Z1C, I'd still recommend this phone to you if you want a power in a smaller case.
Or maybe you can go for LG G3 if you want a good display (for movies and games too)
As other members here mentioned, there's no perfect phone. every phone has bugs on it.
Still, the decision is up to you.

Guys in order to solve your problems, I read somewhere at the sony forums, here's a TEMPORARY solution.. just go to APP MANAGER>ALBUM>CLEAR CACHE AND CLEAR DATA then RESTART your phone. That should remove those annoying smudged albums. I was disappointed that Sony can't even fix that album bug. Hoping for SW update..
I have this phone fo nearly 4 months, every thing is ok. Its a nice phone with great size and character but after updating it to kitkat the camera has been defective. It hangs every time and allerts camera not available or cant save the picture after taking it. I have to restart the phone to be able to take some photos but after a few hours or a day the problem is here again and I have to restart the phone again. I did reset my phone to the factory settings but the problem still exists. There is no answer from sony yet about this shaming defect while many experia z1 compacts have this malfunction. I dont know what to do. Please help me if you know something about it. Does any body here have this problem?
Bought this phone and tried it in water and now it will do nothing but restart the whole time. Will probably lose all my photos of that holiday. DONT try this phone in water unless everything is backed up. Hope sony wont give me the bad service most ppl seem to have got.
what would b better option xperia-Z1 or Z1-Compact?
can it b possible to upgrade xperiaZ1 to kitkat version?
*I want big screen with better battery backup.
*support latest big size games.
*better rear camera.
*Most Important, a very much faster internet access.

You can forget about SAR as a health risk since the frequencies of cellphones are too low to be ionizing, BUT it has been proven that phones with higher SAR values have better signal, so just go for the highest SAR value, if the SAR is very low then expect the phone to have a poor signal quality when far away from the mast.

Update your phone through computer via Sony companion
Phone cannot be marketed if it is not within the FCC acceptable values, in the US the maximum SAR value is 1.6 watts per kilogram of human tissues, and some other localities have 2. The phone specified SAR value is the maximum radio frequency that the phone can emit, only in times that the phone is too far from the cell site or from which antenna its getting the signal. The Frequency referred as SAR is your phones strength to get signal even if it is very far from your operator's transmitter. So, if you are in a highly developed locality where cell sites are just located everywhere, forget about SAR.

AnonD-279135, 07 Aug 2014Hi
LG G2 or Z1 Compact?If you care about your brain at all, don't get the Z1 Compact. The extremely high SAR value made me return it after trying to use it for an hour. (Now, 4 hours later, I'm still not able to think clearly, thanks to the radiation.)
If contemporary studies are to be trusted, buying this phone is like saying "please give me brain tumours ASAP".
Other than that, the interface is kinda nice, what little I got to see before I had to turn it off. And, of course, the possibility to taking pictures under water is golden. (Which is why I bought it to begin with.)
LG seems to have much better SAR values. MUCH better. (Actually, ANY phone seems to have much better SAR values.)
My next buy will be a LG.
Ace_circa, 03 Aug 2014Wow, u give a great hands on review....salute
Somebody that know what he is holding....great... moreThanks:) Your word really makes me happy.
Never underestimate a true user. They never lied and complaints alot.
Raihan, 05 Aug 2014What's About Picture Size ?? When you usually take the best quality of Photo.... After all , I... moreNo photo quality options is available though. It only shows resolution - 20.7(4:3 - 5248x3936), 15.5(16:9 - 5248x2952), 8(4:3 - 3264x2448), 8(16:9 - 3840x2160), 3(4:3 - 2048x1536), 2(16:9 - 1920x1080).
File type is JPG.
Photo comparison between 20.7 and 8:
Photo sharpness » 8MP. It shows greater details over the 20.7MP.
Colour saturation » 20.7MP. It saturate the colour giving you a 'wow' look
Colour accuracy » 8MP. Not saturating the colour. Just the right colour.
Size » 8MP is 2.4 - 3.1mb. 20.7 is 4.8 - 6mb.
Option » 8MP. More options to play. Superior auto and HDR is available.
Thats my answer. Thanks for your reasonable question.
I also need your help of how do I get notified by anyone reply my opinion in gsmarena. That's why I reply late.
I bought Z1 compact in the month of March which i could hardly use because of the camera problems and software problem... such a worst experience from Sony for the first time in my life...
Camera Problem : no 20 mp clarity for photos.
Software problem: after updating android version to 4.4.4 each restart is giving me duplication of album with smudged copies.
Worst experience with the support team and services on this due to which my issue is not yet fixed. Y can't sony refund me if they are unable to fix my issue..???
