Summary: Wrong model, wrong color. I asked for a black Z1 compact, i got a white regular Z1. Since price and features are pretty much the same and since i was in a hurry to replace my aging smartphone i decided to keep it, but on the other hand i lost the case and screen cover purchase; i had to buy them...
Avoid WorldWide Distributors and this phone unless you want trouble.

Summary: I really really really want to like this device. When it worked, I very much enjoyed it. The main problem is that it was defective out of the box and the seller (WorldWide Distributors) refuses to take back any device that's been taken out of the box).
Summary: Save yourself a headache. This model is buggy. Whether it was the Sony software, Kit.Kat or Google Play - pick your poison. This phone was a nightmare. The online forums went nuts about 2 days after my phone arrived, and I found out why quickly.
Summary: It was a great phone but it lasted only a day and a half. Probably a lemon. Unfortunately the seller, Worldwide Distributor, and Amazon both denied my claim for a refund or a replacement based of the policies that the factory seal is broken and a claim must be made within 24 hours.
Summary: I bought a sony dock dk-32 with the phone and used it to charge the phone. after 3 months of using the dock the dock port on the phone came off when I undocked it. called sony for warranty. they said that since it's a physical damage, it's not covered by warranty.
Summary: The specs are great but great specs are pointless if the phone doesn't work. DO NOT BUY Pros: 22+ MP camera Waterproof Cons: High MP camera is useless if it crashes when you try to take photos Apps which use the camera (including the standard camera app) crash OFTEN (almost half the time) Phone lags...
