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
Summary: I really like this phone. It fits right into my pocket and it has all of the features of a bigger phone. It takes great pictures and like all Android phones it's easy to customize. My only problem is with the seller. Poor customer service since they never replied to me after a legitimate complain. I paid extra money to get it delivered before the end of the week but it came later than expected. I paid for two day shipping but I did not get it on time.
Great waterproof feature, shame about the camera quality and unreliability.

Summary: My Samsung Galaxy S3 broke suddenly after I dropped it on concrete on my birthday night out (bloomin' typical!), so I needed a replacement ASAP. After some research I decided on the Z1 compact mainly due to the camera and waterproof feature. After six months with it I decided I've tested it enough to review it in full.
Summary: The Sony Z1 Compact is an unbelievably good phone,powerful,fast good camera,so why oh fecking why didn't Sony put the scratchless glass on it that HTC have on there Smarts? It's all well and good having a smartphone,but without smartglass it's irrelevant.
Excerpt: Buying a phone today is brought to finesse. All phones conceptually look the same. Same big couple inch screen, One to three buttons at max... What makes that important difference? Xperia Z1 Compact is said to have: 4.3" screen (capacitive touchscreen is now by default) nothing special 2GB of RAM (common for the phones of that price range) Quad-core 2.2 GHz CPU (a decent one) 20.7MP back and 2MP front camera (a fair one) 16GB internal storage Android 4.2 and upgradable...

Summary: Really happy with my new phone so far after a month. Battery last about a day and a half and I use it quite a lot. The camera is a lovely upgrade for me and my HTC Desire of 2010. When looking through the camera and comparing it to the iphone 4 my partner has, it has no lag at all when swishing about, which shows the power of the processor.
Excerpt: Barring aside the waterproof feature and the sleek looks i dont the phone is different from other devices sony has. for a first timer user who was on blackberry for 10 years i think the its a decent phone. but oculd have been priced at 25-28 K . the display in sun is not bad. Sony also gave a cover ( flip type ) , 6 months accidental insurance free. which is a surprise goody.
Excerpt: Sony Xperia Z1- War between Samsung Galaxy s4?? Last year one of my friends bought a Sony Xperia Z ultra and while she introduced it in front of us, we nearly got a shock. Because we never seen that much bigger phone before. Some one should need a bag to carry it around. But Z1 is small enough while comparing it with Z ultra. And now Sony released Z1-compact. This new model's price range is nearly that of Samsung Galaxy s4, we have to look deeper inside.
Pros: Water - proof, Decent Battery life,
Cons: Glass back prone to smudges, Poor Low light photos, Poor bundled services
