However it might void your warranty, so make sure what you are doing.
Fazi.hhh, 16 May 2014I am planning to buy a phone. I am confused between Z1 Compact and Galaxy S4. Which is better?... moreGo for S4 if you want a 1080p display, AMOLED and a pathetic build quality phone. For other things Z1C is the clear winner.
I have used the S4 for eight months, it was undoubtedly the worst phone I have ever used actually. Don't forget how buggy and slow TouchWiz is.

I m using this z1compact almost 1 month every thing is good but problem is every time i charge need to open a lid so not convenient. Sony will consider to make charging port open like headphones one n charging dock is ok but if useing cover on mobile cant fit with cover agail not convenient n camera open little slow n physical camera botton not working in once need press 2,3 times to open camera n take pic.
MrsPhia, 14 May 2014I want to buy this phone because of great personality and camera. but it is worth to buy ?The phone is worth you buy. Really its awesome. These problems that these users are experiencing are little problems that they are trying to make like battery life problems. Phone is awesome go buy it and you'll see what I'm talking about starting from the crispy screen.
Pratip11, 15 May 2014 Thik Twice before you purchase I purchase this phone yesterday . I am already having ... moreYour problems are little ones. Notification light? FM radio signal depends on your location and the channel you are on so its not the phone. As for the camera I really don't know what you talking about? The phone is really good but these problems are little its not worth it to return it so your problems are most likely caused by the environmental things.

Thik Twice before you purchase
I purchase this phone yesterday . I am already having a sony ericsson xperia arc (LT15i). I just need to upgrade my taste on android phone, so that I purchase this one. T searched a lot on the market and found this phone the best one in this price range. As this phone is having 2.2GHz Quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. Another advantage is 20.7MP G sensor camera.
But my real experience is like this:
The phone is really really fast.... No issue with the ram, processor and the inbuilt memory.
Battery is also good (with H+ signal, I use to get 29 hours of battery backup after 100% charge on the first time, n.b. H+ signal consumes more battery than WiFi)
My all the sync was on and I have used Skype, whatsapp, Walkman, camera.
Now coming to the bad part of the phone....cause you will get a lot of good side if you search on the web.
1st is the CAMERA. Really noisy picture in low light. You will not get any option for shutter exposer also. And shutter timings are really large. So pictures use to became hazy. So you need to keep steady at the time of snap.
Night photo, or photos taken in low light use to have a lot of noise in it.
AND THE MOST WORST THING IS THE FLASH. It is working like a torch. A solid light circle, after that a dark black zone, again solid light. You will find that same on your camera too... This is the most annoying thing you will found the most.
NOTIFICATION LED, all sony phone is having this LED notification we all know. But this phone fails to create white colour. Pinkish colour you will see at the time of white colour notification.
HEATING PROBLEM is the another problem. Specially the music player creates a lot of heat. 3G or even 4G do not use to create that much. Heating occurs at the time of charging too.
FM RECEPTION is really bad. Most of the time, you will not get the stereo FM signal.
The last thing is the WALKMAN output. As sony Walkman is good, you might expect more than the output it use to give. And some software problem with the volume also you may find out. Speaker is not that loud too.
ALL THESE TALLY I AM DOING WITH MY SONY ERICSSON XPERIA ARC (LT15i). I AM GOING TO THE SERVICE CENTRE TO GET MY PHONE CHECKED. ANY FURTHER UPDATE I WILL UPDATE OVER HERE.
THREE STAR I AM GIVING ONLY FOR PROCESSOR, RAM AND THE INTERNAL STORAGE. EVEN UI ALSO OK FOR ME. BUT NOT THAT MUCH COLORFULL.
I want to buy this phone because of great personality and camera. but it is worth to buy ?
Is it possible to run IOS7 in Z1C?
Z1C is much better than other mini phones avaiable in market
