Overall User Rating (4.1 Out of 5 based on 282 ratings)
Overall: This is the only small size phone packing in premium hardware .It looks just like the Z1 with almost similar specs except Four :nn1. Screen Size :- 4.3 Inches instead of 5 inchn2. Screen Quality :- 720p HD instead of full 1080p HD n3. Battery :- 2300Mah instead of 3000Mah.n4. Design :- Plastic back instead of glassnnRest it keeps all the goodies of the Z1 that are :nn1. Sexy Designn2. Water and Dust Proofn3. 20.7 Mega Pixel Cameran4. Snapdragon 800 Processor clocked at 2.2Ghzn5. Adreno 330 GPUn6. 2GB RAMnnAdvantages of The Z1 Compact Over the Z1 :nn1.Its much more convenient to operate with a single hand.n2.Despite the 2300Mah battery it has a great battery backup because of the 720p small size screen.nnDisadvantages of The Z1 Compact Over the Z1 :nn1. Unlike the the Z1 , the back of the Z1 Compact is not glass , rather it is plastic and sony have now confirmed this. So the plastic back is more prone to scratches.n2. I Fell its a bit expensive comparing it with the Z1 . Keeping the fact that sony is using the 720p screen instead of the 1080p , I think they are saving a lot so they should price is somewhere around Rs 28000 to 30000 but i guess in a few months the price would eventually come near that.nnOVERALL ITS A GREAT BUY !!
