Gaming performance in casual (temple run 2, subway surfer) and heavy games (nova 3, asphalt 8, and modern combat 4) are smooth without any lag or frame loss. The 3d graphics visually look very impressive due to Adreno 330. The web browsing is fast due to the quad core and clocking speed 2.2 GHz.
The camera and video performance are great without any issues with regards to outdoors and indoors, but in indoors with flash a little noise is observed. Macros are fine, the photos are outputted as that got from the compact digital cameras. The voice quality is up to the mark, but the speaker volume is a bit less with regards to music and gaming.
Sony xperia z1 compact is a minute smart android phone with a lot of capabilities. In my personal view I opt this phone with regards to only small drawbacks as non replaceable battery and loudness of speaker.
