bronze, 10 Apr 2014Where did you buy that unit? Im from the PH too and im interested in getting either this phone... moreXperia Z is a very excellent phone in so many ways but battery in Z1 Compact is nearly twice as good. The Z has an amazingly sharp display but loses to Z1C on contrast and color reproduction, also on viewing angles for those who care about that.
Go for Z only if you like big displays. About the battery, it is very good in standby, even with active data connections but it drains down a bit too fast when display is on, also at low brightness settings.

The camera is really broken. That is because they used an other material as on the z1f (to save money of course...) - there is no update that can help to improve the camera. They have to replace the hardware, but they won't.
Also a lot of trouble with the latest kitkat update. Phone is freezing, sms und whatsapp are always crashing.
The Sony Support is terrible, just telling me (and as I read in other messages also other people) that there is nothing wrong with the phone and everything is alright. This is so unprofessional.
I bought Z1 compact a month back, but still not happy as I was using an old Galaxy R. comparing to that, Sony is not worthy to the money I am paid.

1. Go into settings
2. Select power management
3. You will be shown a list of options. The first option is stamina mode. If you turn on stamina mode it will make a huge difference to your battery life. Read through the other options as they may also help you save battery life.
I bought z1c 3 days ago. It is a very nice handy phone. But I have a problem with the battery life. When I go to sleep the battery life percentage shows 82%, but in the morning it shows 61%. It means almost 21% of battery life lost when phone idle or stand by. Mobile data was also disable at night. I can't understand what I will do. Can you pls help me out about this issue?
Very good phone.Everything u need from top smartphone is here.Although for me the camera is not the best, but still capable producing something amazing. The best thing about this phone is the processor,its very smooth.Surfing the web is a joy very smooth and the screen size perfectly fit for me.Another best thing is waterproof. Im using motorcycle and caught with heavy downpour after juz 2 days buying this phone,phone was completely wet but its survive without any problem!!!although i need to dry the casing..
i bought z1 compact yesterday and this phone really amazing, the price is value of money too.

If you want a really fast phone at a cheap price then go for BlackBerry Z10, it runs the majority of Android apps, about as many as Razr i can run, but Z10 has 2GB RAM to make sure you never experience any performance hiccups, and with BB10 being a QNX based Microkernel OS it performs much better with only a dualcore than any Motorola does. Feel free to read more about QNX to understand why microkernels are the best for systems with limited performance where high reliability and security is extremely important, and true mutitasking or functionality is not sacrificed (like in WP and iOS). QNX is even used to control nuclear power plants, you will never see Android doing that.

This is the best gadget i have seen till date..the perfect screen size, packed with everything offered in high-end phones with too much big screen, 4.3" is best for a phone, and this is called portability, it's sad to see lots of smartphones these days comes with 5"+ screen, which is not a good thing, this will be my next buy, still price is too much according to my liking, hope it'll decrease by 10k at least in Pakistan, really love this device...keep it up sony! Take that HTC and Samsung!

I found an issue with my Z1C
While receiving incoming call, speaker turns on automatically.
Its a known issue observed by many users.
Check the link below
A known fix is to go to settings > apps > all > phone > clear data.
It is working fine for me now.
I'm interested in buying a phone next week but confused between this, htc one mini & galaxy s4,my main concern are:
1) Good enough camera (as i love to click photos)
2) Loud enough ringtone (audible even at crowded places)
3) Great call quality (don't wanna stick my phone to my ear to listen to my callers or be like a deaf person).
So which of these 3 has all these qualities?
Thanks in advance.
