Have recently picked myself up one of these, and have to say it's by far the best Android phone I've used.
The external speaker sound isn't as good as the HTC One/mini, and it's a fingerprint magnet, but my Nexus 5 battery would be between 25-30% by now, and the Z1 compact is sat at 70%. The quality of phone calls is better, and the device fits perfectly in the hand.
I can't honestly see me buying another Android phone while this one lasts. It's perfect.
Rezzer, 11 Jun 2014Lol. Maybe if you stop taking acid you might realise you're wrong on that one. Maybe if you would have a bigger IQ you could understand...
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2014Sh**ty amoled screens can never be 10.Maybe 5-6.Lol. Maybe if you stop taking acid you might realise you're wrong on that one.
I have S3, S4, S5, Alcatel, Motorola smartphone. Before I have bought also SONY smartphone but trade in because of the WiFi channel uncovered to all.
2 weeks ago I have bought Z1 Compact and overall I love it especially on the design.
last week upgrade from Jelly Bean to KitKat then the shit is coming, I have a problem on Microsoft Exchange Synch Active. Reset so many time but the problem still unsolved. I should listen to the forumers comment on this shit..
Now I hate this Sony. You are not ready with KitKat but why do you announced this bloody shit..
Now switch back to using S5 -
Samsung never giving problem, the most reliable smartphone in the world.
random_user, 08 Jun 2014I don't know why this myth persists.
Modern battery systems especially with lithium batteri... moreYes google it and see that it holds true, and it has not improved but gotten worse as manufacturers have continued to increase the min and max voltages of li-ion batteries. According to the leading site a 4.35v max voltage battery will have lost more than 50% capoacity after only 200 cycles, that number used to be 30% after nearly 500 charges.
What you are saying may hold true for batteries of electric cars, but there you will find something interesting, and that is that those batteries have only half the energy density, they use a stronger substarte and dont charge to nearly as high voltages, and that way they can now last 10 years and 6000 recharge cycles.
Also familiarize youRself with ions, which are basically just positive charged Lithium atoms, and those are huge compared to elementary particles like electrons, very huge, and they are the electricity carriers inside a li-ion battery and has to go from the anode to the cathode and back for each charge/recharge cycle. This cause swelling on the side that the ions are on when you charge to 100 and discharge to zero, swelling and contracting over and over again, causing cracks in the grids and thats permanent damage.
The way the development is going now we should expect 2015 batteries in smartphones to be changed every 3 months, but the simple solution is to never charge full or drain empty, easy. This is also what professor Valoen says, he is the worlds number one authority in battery technology/research and you are not.
BABAK, 09 Jun 2014i never listen to music by default app and am using bs player for music, i dont see any proble... moreHave u listened d music of LG g2? Wts d main difference in g2's music and z1c's music? And one thing i want to clear is i was always use default player
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2014Actually i m planning to buy z1c over LG g2 and HTC one mini 2 bt worried about it's music.. I... morei never listen to music by default app and am using bs player for music, i dont see any problem in it, and one more time plz note that its the smallest high performance phone in the market and if listening to music is important for you its better go for htc one or lg g2, regarding the music those two are far better than z1c
BABAK, 09 Jun 2014on earphone yes its great but on its loud speaker no. Actually i m planning to buy z1c over LG g2 and HTC one mini 2 bt worried about it's music.. I don't care about Loud speaker.. Bt d performance with d earphones matters d most. I heard so much that Xperia flagship's audio with earphones is very quiet n mild. Currently m using Sony Ericsson neo v which may not sound as clean as z1c bt loudness n punchiness is very good. With earphones My phone's music performance is as good as live with walkman...
GhassPholl, 06 Jun 2014z type are good phones including Z1comp.... but the font is too small.. even choose extra larg... moreif you mean in the message board you could use go keyboard with extra large fonts and you didnt need to sell your phone and go for z2 in higher price tag
Pluto, 08 Jun 2014What colour is best for this? Black or whitei own black but white one is better as it shows scratches less than the black one on the back panel but if you use protector so the black one is so fashionable
imran, 08 Jun 2014how is battery life
not bad but not great for watching movies alot or playing games for 4 or 5 hours.
if you want for playing games go for z1
Hey guys can anyone tell me how is z1c's music with earphones? Can it beat old legends like Sony Ericsson live with walkman in terms of bass n punchines?? Me n my brother r still using Sony Ericsson phones n they r incredible when it comes to music...
Anomynous, 06 Jun 2014Just want to point out that you should never let your battery go as low as 15%, or even 24%, i... moreI don't know why this myth persists.
Modern battery systems especially with lithium batteries have moved on so much that the problems that this was designed to handle belong in the past. Manufacturers used to state this advice in manuals but no longer do.
What affects battery life more than the specific charge discharge cycle is their overall usage.
This has been debunked so any times, I'd suggest using Google for the details and in the meantime use it as you see fit.
Just bought it...spent a day...I m in loooove....:-). Superb....camera fantastic! If you know how to use it B-)
brilliant phone, first phone I have ever got from sony and it is fantastic. the one downside if you got the black one like I do it smudges very easily and gets scratched quite easily as well but apart from that the best phone I have ever had.
