Seems about right time to upgrade my og Xperia Z. Just hope the back glass wont have any peeling off issues like mine. Anyone face the same issues be it with Z1, Z1c or Z2?
There was some hoo-ha awhile back because the back of the Z1C is actually made of plastic and not glass.
My Z1C has had a SP on it since day 1, flawless

"The Z3 Compact fills the gap that Apple left by not releasing a smaller version of the iPhone 6 and could well capture a swathe of iPhone users looking for a powerful and supremely-built phone that can still fit easily in your pocket.

It is the only Android smartphone of its size that offers the specs it does and would be a logical upgrade to the iPhone 5. Whether it can convert the Apple disciples, however, is yet to be seen."

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Review: What the iPhone 6 Could Have Been
Another useless review, reading out specs from textbook and comparing hardware figures.

Some reviews could really do better with the real phone.

Hmmm, you can preorder in UK for about SGD600, which will be about SGD700 after shipping and import costs. If they decide to price it around 750 here I will just go and buy local. Hope they announce the pricing at the event tomorrow.
You can expect the same price as the Z1 Compact when it came out here.

Heard from Sony Center that Z3 Compact will retail at $798. We can expect the shops to sell around $700. Collection date is on Oct 3rd, but another promoter told me that the telcos may get it a week before the Sony Centers.

Have to say that the video quality is extremely disappointing. Check the btekt video comparisons with Samsung alpha and iPhone 5s on YouTube. It looks horrible!
Z3 looks more true to life, whilst alpha looks over saturated.

I agree the alpha looks over saturated, but the Sony looks horribly washed out / over exposed. There is also a comparison video with the Iphone 5s and according to the reviewer, the Iphone is truest to the actual colours.
I dont care too uch about the camera, especially video, but this just seems really bad. I will still get the phone anyway. 15h30 now, Sony event should begin!

Anything included with the preorder? I hope retail price will be lower, otherwise I will order from UK instead.

Please do not mention alpha anymore, that phone is a disgrace with that battery capacity next to Z3C.

Plus it is an insanely priced ridiculous piece of trash... Samdung started humble, once the S2 and Note 1 brought success to them, they started charging premium with their crap.
