Sony Xperia Z1 Compact users have been complaining since long about the problems they had with the handset’s LED flash. When photos are taken in low light using LED flash, the flash ‘bleeds’ into the images and shows color distortion in the final result.

According to inside-handy a German website, Sony Germany has now acknowledged this flash bug problem. However, Sony says that this problem has occurred in only a small number of units and the defect has been corrected in the new Xperia Z1 Compact devices manufactured by the company.

Unfortunately, the problem in existing devices cannot be fixed by Sony as it is a hardware issue and users will have to bear with it unless the company comes up with some solution such as handset replacement. However, the new buyers of Xperia Z1 Compact will not face this issue as the defect has already been rectified by the company.

Xperia Z1 Compact is Sony’s premium brand and a great mini smartphone to buy.
