Is this the rear panel of the international version of the Sony Xperia Z1 mini?

The international version of the Sony Xperia Z1 mini has everyone excited. Sure, the Sony Xperia Z1f has been released, but that is for Docomo subscribers only. What has everyone pumped about this device is that it keeps much of the same specs found on the full-sized Sony Xperia Z1. The Xperia Z1 mini keeps the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, the 2GB of RAM, and the 20.7MP camera...

You mean a physical home button? No, that will ruin it's design.

Unfortunately, some people prefer productivity/ease of use over 'design'

How is a physical button more productive than software keys? I find it easier to switch between apps with a slight touch on a software key than having to double press or long press a physical home button.

The physical button keeps the phone looking nice, clean and take up no screen space.

Biggest drawback of on-screen buttons is the loss of precious display screen (where the buttons are on the screen all the time).

They also result in dead pixels over a long period of time.

Often i end up pressing the home button when playing games for example (happens a lot during Temple Run wheh i intent to Jump)

Its easier to wake up the phone using a physical home button Rather than to reach all the way up every time to unlock it.

with home button, the phone can be operated from within the pocket without looking at the screen. eg snoozing the alarm in the morning without looking at the screen, etc.

Last physical home buttons as more funcionatyof double tap and long press which is not possible in on-screen buttons.

Those aren't "bazels", that is the rear glass body of the Z1 Mini.

I know that.... But as the design is the same as what we saw in Z1, there's no doubt that it has those bazels!!!

Maybe when you learn how to spell people might take you seriously. I believe you meant to type bezels, not "bazels"...

If it has micros SD and is actually compact, it will be the best phone out there. Period.

If you look his/her profile picture and his/her username you can see he/she is die-hard Acer fan.

Xperia Z1 and its mini version are as ugly as the iphone in bezel - too large.
