This phone is simply awesome, speed, battery life, camera, sound it good especially the internal speaker, if u want to listen to music use the headset or connect to an audio device because listening to music via the loudspeaker sounds crap on any phone unless u dont know about music and want to listen via the loudspeaker. As for the screen it looks much sharper and produces better image quality than any dull samsung

Anonymous, 03 Jun 2014I am a Z2 user, and Z1 compact has IPS display
720 p is excellent for 4.3" display and ... moreYeah thanks. I know it has a IPS display, just wanted to know how good it is.
Also that other person said that it has very bad audio quality (not like iP5S or S4), so I would like to know that as well. What hardware does it use? Wolfson or something else?
I have Z1 C bit While updating or downloding any app from play store i found no response but appearing as if its downloading or updating for long time with no result,
Anyone faced this issue or could advice, thanks
Saurav Ghosh, 02 Jun 2014So how bad is the display actually? If you compare with Z2 or S5 or those kinds?I am a Z2 user, and Z1 compact has IPS display
720 p is excellent for 4.3" display and it produce naturally rich colour like Z2
Z1 compact is better and stronger than galaxy s5, if you do not like big screen
1080p shines in big screen and at 4.3" screen ,1080p and 720p can't divided with human eyes
I mean, they are the same in 4.3" screen
In camera, z1 compact20.7mp camera is better than galaxy s5 and note3 and Xperia z
Have a nice day,

Sony only lightly skinned Android unlike Samsung where they add another gig or two to the installation file size.
SwiftKey open instantly on this. My Samsung's were a disaster after a while. I'll never buy a Samsung ever again.
The battery is the main selling point for me. I stream music & radio for 8 hours a day most days in work plus bluetooth for an hour & then my usual lunchtime and evening browsing. The phone is turned on at 7am & by 11pm there is still about 30% left.
Gps & Internet connect fast & being waterproof, this phone is a great option for active people who don't want to bulk of a larger phone.
I'm getting used to the screen and the sound is kinda ironed out at this stage. The camera might be your only issue.
dinozos, 01 Jun 2014Z1 Compact or LG G2??? Leave aside the size difference.Lg g2
dinozos, 01 Jun 2014Z1 Compact or LG G2??? Leave aside the size difference.z1 compact with expandable memory and is dust and waterproof
I want to know what could be the most acceptable reason why a Samsung user will switch to this phone.
I value good camera resolution (in low light, underwater and fast movement), and a phone that doesn't lag/hang, and high speed mobile data/internet especially when used on mobile applications.
I appreciate all your response. Thank you
i should have come to the site before going in for it. I just swapped my Samsung windows for sony z1 mini. what a regret. I cant take it back. any one with how to set to the 16 g. does it work because my internal memory only reads 2gig
Hmm. Sound's bad. Display's bad. Camera? God knows if I will ever find a decent phone with civilized size!
jerjer, 31 May 2014which is more better s4 zoom or z1 compact
Both are two different things but if you prefer camera then go for S4 zoom bcoz Z1C camera quality is so bad.
Specs and performance wise Z1C is better phone.
Messidona, 30 May 2014Help me please - Z1C or Acro S? I mean not which one is better but quality/price. Acro S is 20... moreAcro S is a horrible big thick phone, not great performance, not the best touch, no more software updates, not great battery, not great display. It was good at its time but if you compare it to phones of today you will see how much phones has improved over the last two years. Dont get Acro S, you will regret.
Sina, 01 Jun 2014My experience tells me that there is always something wrong with Sony. They just try to reach ... moreSamsung & Nokia are crap. Nokia makes crap hardware & samsung write slow, unnecessarily large, crap software.
This is my first Sony & I'd take it's short comings any day over Samsung's.
It this stage I'd buy an iPhone if they made one with a big battery & opened up ios 8 to third party keyboards.
Apple's software is as clean as it gets.
