Yeah but that's like the only difference. Seriously. That, and that the Compact has a bit better screen and a lower capacity battery but less draining of a screen, so battery times would be about equal.

Smaller, more obviously compact, 720p vs 1080p on regular, doesn't make a difference anyways also the compact is IPS I think vs TFT on regular z1

The Compact also has a plastic back instead of glass. Processor/camera/RAM/etc are all the same. Only differences are size, battery, external hardware, and screen.
