I've taken a look at all the threads in this department . I found out that the battery is impressive and the camera is so good that you can take beautiful pictures by this small phone . That has amazed me because this phone is small and good and that's what I was looking for . On the other hand , I have noticed that there is alot of problems especially after updating to kit kat such as the flash problem , the speaker voice problem .
I don't really know if I should buy this phone or not .
If you help me , I will really appreciate it but please let me know If you have formated your phone after updating or not because the formating will resolve alot of problems .
last question is : What do you think about the performance ? is it powerful ?
thank you so much (:

I came from Google Nexus 4 rooted and with customised ROM. Apart from the slightly bigger screen size and cooler colours (some prefer warmer colours which this Z1 compact does show, to me), there's nothing much else that I missed. This Xperia compact handles better using one hand and the screen is sharper and more vibrant. It's very snappy, menu navigation is smooth and swift, so far no noticable lag from the few days that I used it. I also rooted successfully using the guide, no worries. I did a total factory reset/wipe before I flash the zips after rooting. Touch wood, have not experienced sound issues. And that camera, seems like the G lens is quite sharp, no serious corner lens distortions like some reviews mentioned. It's way better than that LG phone. Colours are good. You are right! I'm at more than 4 hours screen time, which is impossible for Nexus 4.
