After carefully reading almost all the comments, some encouraging, others extremely harsh, i decided to give this phone a try. My last thoughts and conclusions: i will never ever again base a purchase decision on reading reviews, specially from regular users. I almost passed on there phone, specially due to the negative comments on screen resolution, camera, and sound quality. I own several phones, included and iphone 5s, nexus, samsung, etc. This phone has an excellent.screen, absolutelly gorgeous. Side by side with the iphone, it is marginally brighter, and colors as just as.good. Camera is phenomenal, and speaker, although not.the loudesst, it is very appropriate. Im glad i didnt hear ppls complaints, this phone is definitelly a keeper if you can get it for $500 or less, not the outrageous launch price.
I was playing a game and it got really hot and froze , i cant do anything with it
why buy android over ios? Aside from customization. I'm about to buy a phone and I can't decide which. Not a fan of Giant phones.

However it might void your warranty, so make sure what you are doing.
AnonD-74371, 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.
AnonD-263598, 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.
AnonD-263799, 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.
