Eldamri, 04 Sep 2014for me it's the besel, lighter, slightly bigger batt. I will have to wait for the price to go ... moreI agree 100%, really no need to upgrade for a XZ1C owner, but for me who skipped that model (due camera and build issues) this is the one. Greetings.
darkraver, 05 Sep 2014Are you quite dumm or sth?!? Specs are exactly the same -1gb ramHi, I would not call the previous poster dumm, but there is no competition for this phone. I have been waiting a lot for this device. I think this is the one. I did not like the glossy plastic back cover on the xperia Z1C and had mixed feelings about its camera software. If sony decided not to put screen/back cover protectors as the IFA units revealed they are offering for sure an outstanding/durable product. About the price. I will wait a little bit (3 months) to buy this unit. As usually I think there will be no US-offering for a long time, so I think sony is making here a big mistake. And about keeping the same camera sensor, I would buy even a 13MP unit as long the quality go hand in hand with the hardware. Greetings.

Only camera is same on Z3c, it is a downgraded Z3, doesnt even have same RAM, and still they want to charge 500 Euro for it. Way too much for a midranger with only a flagship processor. Hopefully it will be considerably cheaper, then it may be an ok phone. I always felt that also Z1c wasnt worth it and it was LESS downgraded vs Z1 than Z3c is vs the Z3.
Z3c is quite far down on the daily interest rating, and rightfully so, good proof of how uninspiring this phone is. The public opinion is crystal clear.

Then enjoy the ir blaster, with laggy ui, overheating, knock code malfunction, weakbattery, QHD washed up color, and no manual mode for camera. I forgot no water proofing.
Swordylove, 05 Sep 2014Okay, thanks. That's good to know, because I trust Dragontrail more than Gorilla Glass 1, 2, 3... moreYes, we can even see" the drop test of galaxy note3 & Z1"
Dragontrail is better and harder than gorilla glass
So ,Apple did not use gorilla glass in iphone line ups
avinash84, 05 Sep 2014see this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DragontrailOkay, thanks. That's good to know, because I trust Dragontrail more than Gorilla Glass 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10.
Z1c is using only2300mha battery longer and Performance faster than all Why ? Bcoz screen display, resolution 720p. And I hate is Camera ... Hopeful Sony Fix this ...
Believe me...Only Sony Compact version is best of all android mini version ....bcoz They use the same specification of Z3 5"....
Swordylove, 05 Sep 2014Where do you get this info that they use Dragontrail?see this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragontrail
Glass protection has of ASI Dragontrail Glass just like Gorilla Glass
Swordylove, 05 Sep 2014Where do you get this info that they use Dragontrail?Sony made a large deal with Asahi (company that makes dragontrail glass). It's not solid evidence but it's highly likely that it uses dragontrail glass same goes for the rest of Z series.
Wow all the colours are nice. I wanted the green one but white with white front looks elegant too, and black one also looks so sexy. Gonna be a hard time choosing. Maybe I should get all =D
Kousik, 04 Sep 2014Can anyone tell me what kind of screen protection Sony has applied in this device? I have seen... moreits a dragontrail at front without any plastic protector on it.and back will most probably have gorrila glass 3.
Can anyone tell me what kind of screen protection Sony has applied in this device? I have seen in spec sheet that its not gorilla glass 3 but shatter proof glass. I s it again the same sticking of a plastic screen protector over the display like my old xperia Z? Then I will never think about this phone.
