I remember the good old days when there were camera phones you could twist and turn and flip etc.There were different crazy designs.....who remembers Nokia Ngage, 3250, Motorola Razr? Now everything's just a rectangular block.
Sony will then price the compact in the same tier as a flagship

And make sure the speakers are the best too.
And make sure when you use the color saturation and temperature slides that the screen doesn't decrease large amounts of brightness when you set it to accurate.
And make it 3400mah
Sony, we want Z5 with improved 20.7MP (or more) camera with OIS and large sensor, open USB port, IP68, Snapdragon 820 with 4 or 6 GB RAM, 5.2 - 5.5 inch screen, unscratchable godzilla glass, 32/64 GB memory, 5 or 8 MP secondary camera, xenon + LED flash, FM transmitter, 3200+ mAh battery and all kinds of sensors inside.
Is it too much to ask for?
You haters just stop talking crap. It's not like Sony is making this phone to international market. You can post constructive posts but failed to read the article.
inSyt, 13 May 2015801? I want this phone but with an 808 or higher.its for japan only.very good move
And again. Sony quietly announched Xperia A4 in japan. The sign is pretty clear. Sony will gives up global smartphone business. And follow SHARP and Panasonic business model, sell smartphon in home country only'. #SaveSonyMobile #fireKazuo
FireBird, 13 May 2015Unbelievable... I don't understand Sony's moves lately... Bigger, but otherwise the same - wha... moreI am a big fan of Sony. This is real disappointing form Sony. It seems like the ere killing their own mobile business. It is time to move to other brands.
FireBird, 13 May 2015Unbelievable... I don't understand Sony's moves lately... Bigger, but otherwise the same - wha... moreIt's a carrier specific, Japan only z3 compact. What's the problem in that? It's not going to available outside Japan and docomo so you don't need to understand sony's move here. It's just probably demanded by docom...
I hope its a low-mid range phone but since it has 20 mp, 16 GB internal, and 2 gig rams.. Maybe this phone going to cost about 300 USD
