This is probably my next smartphone.
Currently using Galaxy s3.
The disadvantages here are that it's a bit thick and the only 16gb internal memory.
The galaxy alpha on the other hand is only 6.7 mm and has 32gb internal memory, but 1 huge downside - no sd card, so those 32gb are all you get...
tk, 14 Aug 2014I am waiting for this phone like for the second coming of christ. I am so happy that at least ... moreMe too, i was so disappointed with the insane length of the iPhone 6, depressive, and then Z3 Compact came and saved me with a full centimeter less length, and probably twice as good battery. I hope they make the Z3c thick enough instead of sacrificing battery capacity. I dont want android again but since its Sony i can stomach it, clean enough with moderate bloat, only need to disable a few google-things to make it acceptable to use.
Zhe, 14 Aug 20144.6 or 4.7 inch is just too large to be considered compact...4 or 4.3 inch would be better.Hahah so only the screen size matters, not the phone size? Ok, i will put a 4 inch display in a T2 Ultra and sell it to you.
Zhe, 14 Aug 20144.6 or 4.7 inch is just too large to be considered compact...4 or 4.3 inch would be better.dimensions are the same of the Z1 compact but the screen is bigger. That's a +

I am waiting for this phone like for the second coming of christ. I am so happy that at least one phone brand realized that there is a niche out there, customers who want a powerful phone without needing a backpack to carry it around.
AJ, 09 Aug 2014Seriously, whats the point of releasing a "compact/mini" version with 4.6inch screen... moreMaybe because iPhone has been the standard of mini/compact phones and Apple will start producing phones with 4.70 inches display.
Well this is just my theory.
Seriously, whats the point of releasing a "compact/mini" version with 4.6inch screen? IMO compact/mini phones s'd never be any bigger than 4.3inch, 4inch s'd be the standard.
its a phone, in another couple of months there will be another phone out. if it makes/receive calls then by definition its a phone, anything more is a bonus!!!
For me,if the design is attractive to me when it is released,that is ok for me.One major reason that make Z2 not to be attractive is the ratio of the length and width,which does not attract attension at first site.
Why it only records video at 1080p 30fps?
The z3 compact should be same as the z3 just smaller size.
At least 1080p 60fps is mandatory.
Allso the battery shoeld be a lot better than the one of the z1 compact(minimum 2500 mah).
If they don't make it happen than z3 compact will be a failure.
Ps:Snapdragon 805 should be the chipset even though Snapdragon 801 seems good enough.
I have ruled out iPhone 6 due to the terrible length, its longer than many 5 inch phones, thats a big fat dealbreaker for me. Now i hope Z3 Compact will not be more than 130mm long, if its more they should drop the Compact moniker all together. Every single phone that came out in 2014 has so far been nothing but disappointing, Z3 Compact is the last best hope for buying a new phone this year.
Yes, YOU CAN !
Come on Sony...make Z3 Compact with all the features and specs of Z3, only smaller. A lot of people will buy it just because the smaller size.
I hope it will have 720p@120fps and 4K recording, otherwise I will buy Z2, despite the bigger size.
The upgrade are not much if we want to call it Z3 Compact.. Why don't Sony give a 2560 x 1440 resolution.. Better Snapdragon 805 or 808.. Maybe to Z4 Compact specs.. Well, what i'm thinking is, it just a marketing strategies.. Sony love it, but to user, we'll have to wait if we want to upgrade our Z1 Compact.. Still love the little devil..
z3c over z1c.
4.6" screen 1080p.
4.3" screen 720p.
I dont think ill upgrade myself with z3 compact. iam happy with Z1 compact. and those who think that a 20.7 mp cam will do wonders, a big sorry for them. iam using a 20.7mp cam of z1compact, believe me the picture quality is just same as of 8mp cam of any nokia phone. though video quality is awesome and its full hd.
Wow.. iphone 6, z3 compact or moto x+1.. hope z3 compact had a dual stereo speaker.. 😁
