Pretty much. I have yet to see a phone (besides the 5S) match or exceed the Z1C.

the 5s isn't a variant of a bigger iPhone so of course it will have all of apples goodies in it, the z1 compact is its smaller in size version of the flagship and OEM's usually skimp on the hardware and bc of this the z1 c is in a league of its own

In terms of specs and size, iPhone 5S matches the Z1C.

Z1 compact still rules!!! 5s is a great device but in terms of functionality camera ruggedness and not to mention the price difference z1c still wins.

They could have at least use s4pro or s600. The so called mini continues , compromising specs unlike z1c the true mini without any downgrade only the screen size. Good luck LG in your mini.

"In terms of specs and size, iPhone 5S matches the Z1C."

Why do you think that? The Z1C has a larger battery and display, expandable memory, waterproof body and a much larger camera sensor. Not to mention that extra gig of RAM. So its quite the contrary when you say "iPhone 5S matches the Z1C."

There is no Z1 mini, the dude is just using the wrong name for the Z1 compact.

Very frustrating. I want flagship specs in a smaller design.

So does everyone, but only Sony understands and listens to its customers.

What does make you think I'm a Chinese?

I'm multilingual, covering five languages, and English being in the third place in proficiency.

슴케팅 is a marketing strategy where female models expose their breasts.

For a VERY long period of time, press images from LG were mostly about girls dressed/posed in a way that their busts are seriously exposed.
And thus, the comments section was flooded with comments about the girls, and hardly anything about the products the girls are holding in their hands.

LG recognized this, and the girls are very conseratively dressed in recent photos.

Good old days, maybe PA could write an article about this bust marketing.

Exclusivity guaranteed.

Maybe you should discuss that matter with a pornography website. If what you said is the case I would much rather see phones in PA than boobs.

It wasn't LG's official "strategy", but most probaly the studio master's personal preference.

It's not that the degree of the exposure was alarming, but the ridiculous consistency people were mocking on with comments.

And since it's a part of the progresses a relatively reknown vendor like LG did, why not?
PA must have many old press images.
