      Sell you Z1 when Z1 Compact launches in India, find some issue in your Z1, get it replaced by Sony service center then sell it some one at 25-27K INR and adding some more money on it, buy Z1 Compact when it launches in India.

      I will not do that above as I am waiting for the new flagship device, no matter whenever it comes. BTW Z1 Compact is awesome device, I am planning to buy in FEB when it gets launched in India.
