Having just "upgraded" from the Galaxy S4 mini to the Z1 Compact, first impressions have been a bit unfortunate. Firstly, I use App Backup and Restore on my Galaxy to back up my apps to my SD card, inserted it into the Z1, installed App Backup and the Z1 doesn't even recognise the SD card. So what should have been a simple matter of transferring all my existing apps across turned into a very lengthy exercise. Apparently Sony is very picky about which apps it lets you install on the Z1. Not happy!
Z1C is the best phone I've ever had.
Before I had the HTC One M7, Nexus 5, Xperia Z. ..
No doubt, in my opinion the best option currently.
I can say that I was/am generally a Galaxy S line buyer / user, and because I had the Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3, Galaxy S4 (standard versions) and/but this year, I'm waiting for the Galaxy F (or the international version of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A) and the version of the LG Snapdragon 805 G3 (3GB/32GB version) and which it will be the best from them, I will absolutely buy it! but talking about small / compact versions, honestly, no one can really compete with the Sony Xperia Z1 compact! Sony Xperia Z1 compact, is really the best mini/compact version ever made!! So honestly compliments to Sony for the excellent job they did in a mini/compact version) and to be as an inspiration for all the other brands to do the same thing with the respective mini versions! So honestly the Sony Xperia Z1 compact deserves the title of the best mini / compact smartphone! !!!!!!!!!

If u r really into games and watching alot of videos then the bigger screen will be better for u that the 4.3" inch that can be found in the z1c
My xperia zr never lags with 2gb ram and 1.5ghz quadcore. What more with z1c with snapdragon 800, 2.2ghz quad and 2gb ram.. Well z2 is way better with 3gb ram for multitasking
