Still waiting to try a demo unit..

Tmrw is media release and hoepfully by the end of the week we could see it in the telcos. Not sure if it would get the needed attention, as the attention would be grabbed by Note 4 and FruitSlab.

Tough decision to make, need a one handed use phone, yet dont want to give up the 5"

Saw in the Z3 thread that the initial price for the Z3 will be 998. Has anyone already heard a price for the Z3 Compact?

I suspect it could be between $690 to $790...and in retail market it could be priced at $650

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.

Price from UK is indeed interesting, but scared of the warranty. Generally it is good to buy with warranty, as my Z1 motherboard passed off in 6 months. So far the Z2 is going fine for me.

Agree, for 30-50 bucks I will not risk it. I think it should be ok, but probably you will just lose your phone for quite some time when sth is wrong with it. Then again, I read that Sony SG is also not great with their service...

"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."

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?

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!
