Z3 Compact is not a midrange phone and Z1C wasn't too.

The problem is that it will be running touchpiss and look like a child's OS. I would love to see the compact with 3 gig and a 1080 screen.

If Sony changes the UI I'll pick one up.

Well I would definitely love Sony forever if it changes into a flatter interface and change the icons because the messaging icon is exactly the same one as a windows phone

The whole UI needs to be reworked. It's ugly and doesn't appeal to me at all. It hasn't changed since 2012 while HTC, LG, and Samsung has gone through three UI refreshes. Hopefully the Material Design Google is pushing makes it's way to phones in Q4/Q1.

Good thinking it should be more mature with a bolder color that would have nice UI but I think they should change the notification bar

I love my black rooted overclocked Z2, cause it screams pure quality and weighs heavy. When you hold it you can feel it's prestge. Dragontrail glass and pure metal. Ui doesn't bother me, cause using CM11 ROM and Kernels. I sometimes under voltage the battery and Cpu to get 4000mah usage from a 3200mah, by setting the kernels and Cpu to extreme saving mode. Then sometimes overclock it 2.6Ghz Cpu and Gpu and battery voltage above 5v, the device becomes very fast and zippy, but battery drains 40% more than standard. Sacrificing battery to gain 40% more power.
