emez, 07 Sep 2014I like this phone,everything is just great but SONY have to lower the price not for only rich ... moreJust get the Z1 Compact then, its basically the same phone with overclocked chipset at a much lower price (or will be lower very soon).
Its a bit shameless behavior by Sony to not give any noticeable upgrades over Z1 Compact, the lack of shatterproof display sheet is the only noticeable difference i can see, noone is ever gonna notice the slightly overclocked chipset and a display at this resolution does not need to be bigger than 4.2-4.3 inch, and the Z1 Compact already had great battery life. So, its hard to recommend spending so much extra for nothing significant. This phone will not be good to buy before it drops in price, 500 Euro is a criminal price for a midranger with overclocked processor.

This Phone is super but if this comes in dual than happy because this phone body size and display size very good.
4.6 with on-screen buttons might be a tad too small for me. Beautiful phone with great specs none-the-less.
Anonymous, 07 Sep 2014UK price is £429 we can expect around $450-$500 in North America.it will be good if the price is around 500$
the phone that i've been waiting for upgrade. super fast performance SoC in a smaller formfactor that would fit in my small hand. it would be better if they make a phone like this with removable battery without sacrificing dust and water resistance like galaxy s5mini does.
Why sony is not working on z3 compact dual sim phone its so important just like z3 dual bring a dual sim z3 compact and many will definitely buy it including me just look what market needs rest is all awesome except dual sim feature

Anonymous, 06 Sep 2014The following improvements on the Z3C:
- Snapdragon 801 at 2.5gHz
- Front facing, stereo s... morethey moved the led flash a way from the camera lens so i think sony fixed the flash bleed issue of the original compact.
wish that sony had improved the loudspeaker performance,i don't need two speakers if i can't hear my phone ringing.
wish that the new compact produces better images than the previous because the 20mp camera of the original compact couldn't beat the 8 mp camera of some samsung phones...
in future compact:
adding IR remote control.
Sintoma, 06 Sep 2014Why it can't support microsd up to 128GB.It can support. and why bother when you cannot afford 16G eh?
