    Saw the review recently and am kind of confused.

    Here in Australia, we've had the Xperia Z1 for a while now (few months I believe), and saw this Z1s at CES just recently. So what's the difference between the two? Is the Z1s just the name of the US variant and it's known as the Z1 everywhere else?

    From what I can tell, the specs seem the same.

    Also, seems kind of strange that they'd bother releasing the Z1s so late to the US when the Z2 is (supposedly) just around the corner with a MWC reveal?

    The Z1s is a International variant of the Z1 for T-Mobile... Smaller, Internal memory of 32 GB instead of 16GB, 720p screen instead of 1080P, the rest is pretty much the same.. A Z1 Mini if you will...

    It's the US version of the Z1.

    I see. Thanks for that.

    I've been playing with a Z1 and it's a very nice phone, however I'm holding out to see the HTC One (2014) and Xperia Z2 to determine which will be my next phone. Both sound like they'll be great.

    Just wasn't sure if this Z1s was the rumoured Sirius phone. Guess it's not.

    The Z1s and Z1 compact/mini are two different phones.

    No supposedly the Sirius phone is going to be competing against the Galaxy S5 when it comes to Specs so expect something big...

    You put the wrong specs for the Z1s.

    No need to get so snarky with him. He was correcting a post you made that was slightly off base to say the least in an effort to properly inform the OP. The Z1s has 32 gb internal memory (a bump up from the Z1) as well as a 5" 1080p screen. I've yet to read a review that says otherwise.

    I see the problem some reviews confuse the Z1 compact with the Z1s... which ends up resulting in 720p screens...

    Other differences include:

    The Z1s moves the headphone jack to the center of the phone.

    Z1s is slightly longer the the Z1 (These two points are important because accessories for the Z1 will NOT fit the Z1s properly)

    The Z1s is shipping with android 4.3 and all the camera enhancements. The Z1 shipped with 4.2 and I believe is staring to get the 4.3 update now.

    If you like to root and put custom ROMs on your phone, the bootloader on the TMo Z1s is locked.
