Summary: I love this phone. I purchased this phone about 6 months ago for use on T-mobile. It has worked wonderfully, and it is the best phone that I have ever used. I chose the phone because for its camera, display, and (relatively) small size. It looks great and takes pictures well. I have read several reviews about how the AR effect is silly, and it is. That being said, my children love to play with that feature. The phone is responsive, and does not every feel sluggish.
I allways wanted a small phone, now i got a compact.

Excerpt: For the last few years, i was a real Samsung Fanboy. Every Smartphone i owned up to now, was produced by them. At first, i didn`t want to change this fact, but i ha two problems: I wanted a phone with a screen size of 4,7 inches or smaller with good up to date hardware and it should be buil with high quality materials, like my former Samsung Wave I. Only Sony could solve those problems for me, and now I am a very happy owner of a Xperia Z1 Compact.
Pros: Perfect size, Good hardware, Battery life, Sony UI very close to stock Android, Materials (expect Back)

Summary: Not water proof! It says it is, but I can confirm it's not (see picture). I did put it through the paces and actually took it in the water, but nothing out side it's advertised capability. This phone is a good phone, but I don't like companies who advertise something they don't back up. I contacted Sony and they told me that water damage was not covered under the warranty.

Summary: This my first experience with a smart phone. I purchased the Z1 based on the reviews, and didn't want something Galaxy S5 sized. Function and performance have matched the reviews. I carry the phone in belt holster, so it can be hard at a glance to know up/down front/back on the phone since it's all black. I've attached a button on twine through the strap holes (strap not included) to provide a finger hold on the phone, and a landmark for which way is up.
Summary: I've only had it for a few days, but so far it's a great phone, there is no lagging and I was upgraded to KitKat as soon as I turned on the device. The camera is excellent, but taking pictures at night is a bit of a bother (I have to play around with the settings some more). However I do notice that in landscape mode while playing games the sides of the screen is darker and it makes it a bit difficult to see things there.
Summary: No five star wins since the version you sent me though it was new, fully , was a version of tim Italian operator and brings a number of application which are not useful for me and take a series of space in the phone memory with respect to the device is great been a week with and performance has been good then escribiere in 3 months to complete my experience
