The Sony logo on the front screen of the Xperia Z1 Compact is baked into the phone’s shatter proof protector, much like the Xperia Z and Xperia Z1 before it. This means that if you remove this screen protector, you will take the SONY logo with it.
See some examples of the Xperia Z1 f, the Japanese version of the Z1 Compact, below showing the handset without the DoCoMo and SONY logos. In all honesty, it makes the phone look pretty good. However, it is worth noting that the shatter proof sheet does serve a purpose according to Sony, keeping the display intact if it does get damaged. Regardless, what is your view on the protector – on or off? Let us know in the comments below.
