The 2 cameras are so different that I don't think they are comparable. As DPR describes it

"Zeiss needed to do something a little different; instead of being mostly a phone that has some extra camera bits on it, the ZX1 is perhaps best thought of as a camera with some phone bits built in (like another old-timer, the Nikon S800c)."

That's just how much of Andorid is surfaced (I believe the Sony cameras also use an Android foundation). They're both fixed lens FF compacts with Zeiss 35mm f/2 lenses, and a rather dated specification.

I will say that being the old fashioned person I am the ZX 1 interface turns me off so if I was to choose between the two the RX1R would be my obvious choice. From my POV the ZX1 is an inferior camera and a downgrade. I like buttons and wheels.
