Is there an IR blaster? It's not a deal breaker, but it'd be nice if it had one.

The design is so much better now that the screen to body ratio is smaller! Now, the white or black version?!

yup..i'm using the sammy GS4 and the IR blaster is a very useful tech. I do consider between iphone 5s and the z1 compact as my 4-incher phone but this new device simply show my way. This phone is going to be my next phone. A compact power house!

Metal and glass, best of both worlds for a phone. Definitely a upgrade from Z1 compact. Question is, upgrade or wait for Z4 compact???
