Just the other day, we told you how the only announced and released version of the Sony Xperia Z1 mini, called the Xperia Z1f, has gone straight to the top of Japan's smartphone sales charts. We also mentioned that those with the device are comparing it favorably to the Apple iPhone 5s. Even though the device has a smaller screen with lower resolution and a smaller capacity battery than the flagship Sony Xperia Z1, the Xperia Z1f employs the same Snapdragon 800 CPU...

Really liking the z1f, only wish the bezels were tad smaller ie like the moto X and fitted in a larger screen.. It should be a performance beast as it's a 800 pushing only 720p so everything from gaming should be snappier not sure what the battery it is but 2000+ should be minimum.. Can see this be a good hit if it's priced well.
