I also asked on the Z1c forum haha. I just want to hear opinions from people who have actually used it, instead of the basic stories like "the screen is bigger".

I'm looking at things not much people look at. Things like can I reach the status bar with my thumb while using 1 hand? How does the keyboard feel like? Do you make a lot of mistakes using the keyboard? Is it easy rootable? Do you press the volume key on accident lots of times?

Just the little things like that I'm not trying to convince myself to get n5 nor z1 compact
did I help you? Please press the THANKS button

want to make a DROPBOX account? use THIS link and we both get a free 500mb bonus!
want to get even MORE space? COPY is a new service just like dropbox. Use THIS referral link and you get 20GB instead of 15GB for a lifetime! limited offer!

My phone specs:
Sony Xperia S LT26i
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
eXistenZ Ultra 1.0.0
Root access: yes
CWM installed: no
Bootloader: locked, but unlockable

****! Why didn't you say so? Just hold the phone in your right hand and use the thumb on the left hand to reach the status bar😝 see simple.

Ive used it on my Xperia S and it works awesome, I could connect it through the bottom and to my hand. My phone didnt fall over the past 2 years!

Sure, just buy a case that allows you to attach that! My Ringke Fusion has a spot to attach a lanyard.
