bought it about a week ago, was a dream, just lovely, and then i closed all the ports i washed it with water, since it's a waterproof phone, and their commercials say i can, and ... all went well,
3 Times everything fine,
on the fourth day, Disaster struck,
my screen now has water under it, and is for all purposes ruined, the rest of the phone is fine and dandy, it's just the screen thats ruined (has water splotches, and stripes now),
i know i closed the ports well, because the wetness indicators are still white.
i really hope my warranty covers this, i'm waiting now for thier verdict.
what about it's flash bleed issue and led back lit issue ?plz.....help me i want to buy it, but this two cons are putting away from me.
Thanks in advance
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2014Have u listened d music of LG g2? Wts d main difference in g2's music and z1c's music? And one... moreone thing i like about sony's walkman player is its clearaudio feature, its provides much better music clarity... best if pair with sony mdr earphones...
Blasted phone broke once it got into the water. What's worse is that Sony claims it was user negligence. Total BS!
...Theirs is the standard-setting mini version of a flagship too (z1 compact). -gsmarena
Sel, 11 Jun 2014So Idk which one I should buy? Z1 compact, LG G2 or myb nokia lumia 1020 ? So is the music ok... moreyou will never go wrong with z1 compact... strong snapdragon 800 and adreno 320 gpu, great battery life, external storage(sd card), water proof!
Would you tell me please, isn't the white Z1C less scratchable than the black edition? I like the black more, and the lime most, but I hope on the white, the scratches are not too visible. What is your experience?

You indicate the hair in video!
It is not a result and not enough;)
Amoled shines with oversaturated colours
The images in Amoled has cartoonish style and is extreme for human eyes!
You can get eye problems for long time use with Amoled
Amoled is good at using in broad daylight BUT we are seldom use smartphones under extreme sunlight
If Amoled can be against glare sunlight, you may be guess the over shine colours*
Amoled has unnatural extreme colours and you can suffer from serious eye problem in a few years
So, Amoled is a screen we should avoid to use*****
c'mon SONY Release a PREMIUM Z2 Compact, Premium ALL specially the external Speakers must be bomsound in the sense that when you connect line in to a bigger Speaker it will produce a loud STEREO SOUND, U CAN DO IT......
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... moreIf you worry about earphone volume, I guess I can recommend buying Z1C. The volume is a bit lower than on Neo, but the sound has more quality...If you still lack the volume I recommend downloading MX player (free): In settings check h/w+ and s/w decoder on, and also " use as audio player" and "play in background".... And there you go, you'll have a music player with about 75% more volume. Enjoy your new xperia. It's a blast believe me! ;-) (just recommending to stay on 4.3, dont upgrade to 4.4)
how to stop the phone from saving ad pictures and creating thumbnails of pictures with resolutions 108x108, 252x252, 540x540 and 720x720?
Anonymous, 11 Jun 2014Maybe if you would have a bigger IQ you could understand...Look, the goal of a camera/display is to recreate the original image the camera captured. If you want luminous green parrots & football pitches then I suggest you get into genetic engineering. The same goes for microphones/speakers. Their job is to reproduce the sound the composer wanted us to hear.
If someone has personal tastes that's fine but but don't blame the display / speakers as being crap for being accurate.
If amoled is a six for you then I would genuinely love to see & buy a screen you rate a ten.
Anyway to get back on topic after your silly segue.
I was simply saying that Sony traded black levels for definition. When viewing a video of someone wearing dark clothing standing against a dark background the whole thing blends into one.
Last night we viewed a crappy X factor video on YouTube with four different phones at the same time. IPhone 5S(IPS) , HTC One(LCD 3), Galaxy S3(AMOLED) & this Z1 Compact(IPS). An acceptable range of screen types regardless of your personal preference. The Sony was the clear looser. I was looking at the crowd in the background when the camera was on the judges. People's hair was often one block colour & often blended in with their clothes.
If you have ever calibrated a tv or projector to a HTPC you probably noticed that if you set the brightness to low in the video software like Vlc or whatever, there is no way to correct it with the display. Sony seems to have done something similar. Nothing wrong with the display. The feed is just arse ways.
So Idk which one I should buy? Z1 compact, LG G2 or myb nokia lumia 1020 ?
So is the music ok on the headphones and on the loud speaker cuz I heard if it's in water the water gets in the speaker so the music isn't that good on loud speaker (or whatever)
Also I wanna know what's wrong with the camera cuz it's has fantastic 20 MP! And what's wrong with the display? If there are any other issues let me know cuz I'm gonna probably buy this one :)
But what do u think which phone is the best?
Nokia lumia 1020
or myb some other? Let me know! Thanks :)
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.
