My phone still looks cool
There is a hole for the USB flap. The case is not too intrusive. I'm not gonna win £20 of vouchers for this review am I?
Good product
Good Product is easy to install and works as expected
Simple, slender, sleek case (but probably not super tough)
Case adds very little (almost unnoticeable) bulk to the phone. Likewise, being transparent and a close, sleek fit it does not stand out in anyway. All buttons, with the exception of the sim slot and the one by the bottom left corner (I can't remember what this is for - the sd card?) are exposed and the case obstructs them very little (perhaps the camera shutter button, since it is so small - a fault on Sony's behalf, really - is a little more difficult to press down, but not massively so). All this being said, I'm not sure whether this case would offer a great deal of protection to phone if dropped - but then I'm no scientist. It is rather slippery in the hand, but I think it does offer slightly more grip than the phone by itself, if only because small ridges are formed where the case reveals the two sides by the power and volume buttons on the one, and the magnetic charger slot on the other.

If you want to add a bit more protection to help your phone weather everyday handling, and perhaps the occasional tumble, with minimum bulk and a minimalist aesthetic, then this is a good choice.
Efficiently protects back of phone and has properly located slots for charger etcetera.
Clear hard plastic protects back and sides. Energy absorbing, unobtrusive and inexpensive. Put a good screen protector on your phone. Not a complete solution but quite effective and affordable.
Fits tightly and is very tough
The clear polycarbonate shell I bought for the Experia Z1 Compact fits tightly and is very tough. The only problem I have is that there are not enough cutaways for all the ports and also the plastic feels sharp to touch. Not a comfortable experience.
Not bad
This case does at least fit the phone and has all the right cut outs so that the device can be used without taking off the case. If I was designing it and allowed to choose the material then my preference would be for a slightly squashier more gel like case such as I bough from Mobile Fun for an iphone and which feels very nice to hold and use. It is also a bit less slippery.
I paid more for this case as the reviews said it was good quality. However it has never fitted the phone correctly, it always seems a bit loose and within a few weeks scratches very easily. Not happy with this case.
Great case
Bought this case so I could still enjoy my lovely pink Sony and the case is totally clear and hasn't broken yet despite being simply hard plastic. Dust and crap does get in it which you can see as it's a clear case but can be cleaned out every so often. Really happy with it!
This case is awesome!
This case is awesome! It's elegant, sturdy and it fits perfectly. It goes great together with the white version of the phone. I've also been using the Flash Ringtone app that gives great results with this case when phone is in horizontal position.

Because the case is transparent there also is no dust and no fingerprints... although, as someone already mentioned it, there is some kind of issue with watery / oily looking substance betwen the case and the phone. I did manage to get rid of some when I cleaned the case with dish soap (now it's seen only if I press hard on the case). I suggest you guys do the same - but clean it with your fingers, so you don't scratch it and also wait for it to try before putting it back on. ;)

And my version came already scratched a little but that didn't bother me so much as nobody's even gonna notice this as the case is transparent and all they see is my beautiful phone.

And in case (pun intended) anybody is wondering. Yes, Polycarbonate Shell Case is compatible with the Sony Magnetic Charging Dock when removing the insert of the dock.
Good... for one day
Good design and nice feeling.
Really keeps the design and lines of my Xperia Z1 Compact original.

But when I come to think about the fact that I wanted to return it because it had a small scratch....

After two days of normal use it looks like I had this case for a year !

It became extremely scratched. Looks like the case itself needs another anti scratch protection.

Too bad otherwise it would have been a good product.
Good buy
Purchased the item and was dispatched the same day. It's transparent all over to showcase the aesthetics of the phone. Slim enough adding little bulk. Hard to slide the phone it between as the case is very tight fit. MicroSD slot will not be accessible but it is compatible with Sony DK32 Magnetic Charging Dock - you just have to remove the insert frame of the dock. Does not provide protection to the top and bottom of the device and you need to press deeper for the camera button. Lastly, the case seems to get scratched easily but it's the device protection that matters.

Overall, I'm okay with the purchase.
not a top quality item
Feels like plastic. Poor corner protection. Not exactly fits the device. SD card is not accessible when the case is on. But will do, if you have nothing else, or like to save 40$.
Looks Great!
I purchased this clear case to replace a white gel one I had bought previously, as it seemed to make my phone fatter and bulkier.

My new case was despatched the day it was ordered, as stated on the website and arrived a few days later.

Overall I am really pleased with the case. It is clear plastic which means that you can see all the detail of the phone through it, including the silver sides. It is also slim so does not add any bulk to the phone whatsoever and actually feels like there isn't a case on at all!

The only downsides I have found with it are that it is quite difficult to put it on the phone in the first place, as it is a tight fit and some of the phone slots including the Micro SD slot are covered so you have to remove the phone from the case to inser or remove a SD card. I don't do this very often, so it's not really an issue for me.

The case did arrive with a small scratch on the back of it, but thought it would get scratched through wear and tear anyway, so didn't bother to return it.

I was initially surprised with the case when I first received it as it seemed not much for the money paid, but now, I think it was well worth it, as I still have a good looking phone, which is also protected from scratches etc..Highly recommend!
Svelte and good protection
As others have said, this case provides great protection with very little bulk. My only complaint is that the phone does not fit into the magnetic charging dock with the case in place (or, at least, not into my third party one). If you own a Sony, you will know what a brilliant idea these docks are -- no more plugging and unplugging a micro USB
great service
The service was great!! The phone and delivery of this item was fast. The sony phone would have been good if i received 4g with my provider so i had to send back. This was no fault of Mobile fun, it was a sony problem. If i received 4g i would have loved the phone. Thanks for great customer service Mobile Fun.

Very Basic
This cover is probably about as minimal as you can get. The case is made of a hard/brittle plastic and clips around the back and sides of the phone. It protects the back of the phone fully but protection to the sides is limited and I would not want to drop the phone relying on this case to protect the corners etc. As with all covers of this design the screen is unprotected. If looks are a priority its clear and minimal design lets you see the phone design clearly. If you want more protection the MUVIT Bimap back case is a better bet.
Good case, strong
This case fits perfect and is ideal if you want to show of your phone and keep it safe. It protects the phone and allows you to have access to the buttons and ports on the phone, so you can keep the case on when charging. My phone is pink in colour so being able to show it off is great whilst keeping it protected.
Does the Job
I got this case for the Z1 compact, the case itself feels VERY sturdy, and unlike other cases of similar build, there is no flex in the case when you attempt to bend it.

The case fits the device perfectly with no gaps.

Doesn't seem as though the case is easily scratched either, its been through a lot in the few weeks I've had the case, namely Airport and travelling and its still like the day I got it.

One issue however, which is a killer for me, is that over the last few days, there looks as though there is water between the case and the phone. However, no matter how much you dry it etc, it remains and grows by the day.

Other than that, great case and worth the money.
Review : Polycarbonate Shell Case for Sony Xperia Z1 Compact - 100% Clear
The case does the job at protecting the back of the zi compact. The fact that it is clear means you can see the finish/colour of your phone underneath which is nice. However there are downsides also. Because it is clear and not totally sealed onto your phone you can see build up of dirt between it and the phone so you will have to take it off and clean it regularly. Also the camera shutter button is not great on the phone on its own, the cutout in this case makes the button even harder to press.
Protection and elegance in one
The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is probably the most beautiful phone I have ever owned. I wanted others to also appreciate it's design and how it feels in the hand. I also wanted to make sure the phone phone had some protection. The polycarbonate shell is flexible yet rigid. It is very light weight and strong. The best thing about it is, it's transparent like a crystal shell still allowing my phone to wow anyone who see it. A very nice product indeed.
easy to fit, lightweight and unobtrusive
Very light, clear protection for back and sides of phone. Does not get in the way of any function keys or slots.quite a hard plastic, not too sure how it would hold up if dropped on hard surface .
Does the job
Order arrived quickly and in good condition. This cover does what it say it will do. Is a good buy.

Please wait...
