If this thread already exists, please delete/close, and point me to it :)

 

I was curious as to how many of our users have one of these phones, the Sony Z1 Compact.

(I was looking for a front page review but didn't see one)

 

I'm interested in what the owners of the device think of it, good/bad etc...

There are reviews available for it, but most of them read like a press release, and I was more interested in what it's like to live with

 

Your honesty means a lot :)

If you as me, to much real estate  wasted on borders.

I get that, was just wandering what someone who has one thinks of it :)

That's great, and thanks, how long does it last per charge? have you had anything negative to say about it?

Mine lasts a long time, charge it every other day. I carry a small portable AA Battery charger with me anyway that I can use in case of an emergency. But as usual, the more Internet/Wireless driven apps like Facebook, Twitter, Skype etc you have running the quicker the battery drain. Just turn these off if not in use and your battery will really last.

Negative wise, not a lot though I would have preferred the charging port to be underneath, rather than on the side.
