Aparadectos, 18 Sep 2014Its a real shame that it wont be able to compete with the new flagships, if it had a 32GB opti... moreYou know you can buy a microSD card and install apps on it?
So why would they make a 32GB version??
As for RAM, you would not see any difference between 2GB and 3GB on this phone, see the benchmarks for the G3 2-3GB, and that one has qHD resolution,etc.
And I think you also make a big error, this is a compact flagship not a compact affordable flagship. It has the same specs as a g3 + and - some features, and it costs less than a big screen flagship (mainly because of the screen and battery).
So what it the issue with the price?
In my country it cost 430-450€ compared with the g3 -600€
This phone is what you exactly think it isn't, a flagship with the same specs as all the other flagships of the moment in a compact shell and it cost less than a big screen one.
Its a real shame that it wont be able to compete with the new flagships, if it had a 32GB option, or a 3 GB RAM version, this would be the phone to replace my G2, however,compromised as it is, it cannot be considered a step up from what i have, more of a side step.
I would gladly play an extra 25% of its current price if it had 32GB storage for apps, or 3GB RAM.
As it is now, it is too expensive for the ones that want an afordable compact flagship and too limited, for the ones who want a new flagship specs, but no phablet dimensions.
This only attracts the ones who can afford last years flagships, thus expecting the last year specs too...
Once again Sony fails on timing and market perspectives, no wonder they are going bankrupt because of their mobile division...
ONE correction for the specs listed here.
IT HAS BAROMETER.
Check Sony official spec sheet (white paper).
audio sounds great and loud to.

Sawhir, 17 Sep 2014Why Z1 Compect's loud speaker sound is too low?hope z3 will be louder with it being stereo. but it will still be waterproof so I guess you got to allow for that
herejere, 17 Sep 2014I love my Z1 Compact. The only issue I've dealt with is that sometimes the camera takes foreve... moreI see. well hopefully the z3 will work a bit better there for you. I personally don't use snapchat so I shouldn't need to worry
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2014If this is a "deal breaker" for you then I think you have your priorities all wrong.... moreSamsung has no such thing. We will see if disabling Google Now can still fix this problem, having a Whats New coming up at every swipe upwards is not an option but im sure Sony is glad you enjoy it. A little browsing on XDA will show that you are the only one though.
It can be fixed without root using pm but this procedure is loosely related to rooting, you have to install it via a USB hack. Thats no more an option than rooting is.
Its ok with me, last weeks pricecut of iPhone 5s 32GB was $150, its both smaller and lighter than Z3 Compact and has a "higher" PPI. Im not forcing Sony to sell me anything and im sure my Xbox One will be just as happy with that Sharp TV i looked at instead of the Sony Bravia we had decided to buy, plus that the lower price of the Sharp pays for the higher price of the 5s over Z3c. Yep, i see no problem here anymore, you are right, its not a dealbreaker, its just a Sonybreaker.
willboyce, 16 Sep 2014hi. has anyone had problems with z1 compact. im interested in this device. looks great in whiteI love my Z1 Compact. The only issue I've dealt with is that sometimes the camera takes forever to open. I think if snapchat is running in the background, it sometimes makes the camera glitchy. It's like the stock camera app and snapchat sometimes interfere with each other.... happens like once over two weeks or so. Resetting the phone or just waiting a few minutes has worked.
Bogdanl, 16 Sep 2014LOL, OK....., what about AC units, non sony tv's and electronics, lights, car audio-video unit... moreremember when the iphone was not able to do video recording ? the fan boys then said who needs a video recorder in a phone?
here u will see people answering who needs IR blaster in a phone....
xperia tab has the IR blaster and so should xperia phones..
