Replacing my Xperia S with Xperia Z1 Compact.
I hope I'm not going to be the only one in this forum!
Congrats on the new toy!
We got a couple in-store today and I have to say that it's a lovely handset. Just as solid and well-finished as the Z1 but smaller.
l can't wait to get my hands on it. I'm upgrading from my Xperia S and it's about the same size which is good.
Mine was delivered yesterday, perfect size for me and its heavy for the size which I also like gives a quality feel.
If I had to pick fault, it would be with the port covers they really feel like they will fall off at some point they are so flimsy, would have been cool if Sony put one of the magnetic port charging cables in the box as you really need to be using one (Just My Opinion)
Not sure why Sony felt the need to put a CE marking lable in the sim tray hole when you pull and push it it slides in and out, it feels attached inside as though its not to be removed, this is also not in the setup guide, simple thing but pretty stupid.
It's the same on the Z1, for such a well built couple of handsets, they covers are pretty flimsy.
I am upgrading from the Xperia S to the Z1 compact too and am just waiting on it being delivered!
How is it fairing after a few weeks useage? Good points/bad points?
I'm loving the Z1 compact and have no regrets whatsoever swapping over from Xperia S. The phones are very similar.
The most annoying/disappointing thing for me, which I use regularly is on the Xperia S, to take a screenshot, we just had to hold down the power button. On the Z1 Compact, you have to hold down the power button and volume down button. I also don't like Chrome, I prefer the stock internet programme that was on Xperia S.
Obviously they are not BIG deals, just personal preference.
If you like your Xperia S, you'll love the Z1 Compact.
Oh, I would defo recommend using Power Management under settings to save your battery, it makes a big difference
