lower resolution means less power needed for the screen = saves battery!
[deleted post]sony technology is outdated..The only loser in ifa 2017 is SONY bye bye sony mobile..

Standard FHD whould have required less den... morethe Compact is 4.6" screen..we dont need 4k resolution for it. it is small already, what is the uses of using high resolution on small screen? you cannot even differentiate between 1080p and 720p on 4.6" small screen using human eyes, so using 1080p on 4.6" is a waste of power. VR? nobody gonna use Compact for VR, there are lots of big screen phone for VR. the compact also contains snapdragon 835. snapdragon 835 + 720p will gives a heaven on playing any games. not to mention snapdragon 835 is not a midrange.
i bet u just talk nonsense based on number, u have not hold any Compact.

The same size display with FHD rather than HD would have been 479 DPI, and a lot of devices got higher than that...
(the oldest is from 2013, so hardly a new thing...)
Even for Sony
the compact will fly! powerful chipset + 720p screen + 2700mah for small screen
720p in 2017, that is saying "Not a flagship".....
Standard FHD whould have required less density that the quite common QHD displays on many flagships.
So yet another STUPID release!!! People that do not want to carry a huge phablet around, do NOT necessarily want a mediocre mid-range device....
The XZ1 Compact is the only one worth mentioning, since there are no competitors on the market. The large bezels and small battery can be forgiven in this case, but not on the other Sony offerings. Putting a 2700 mAh battery in a flaghship is just suicide.
Lot more excited about compact. Hopefully it doesn't have body of s7 or something like that
2700 mah ??????
Rather small for a flaship......
Lets hope a good endurance
So Sony............... 😢
Now, that's a flagship line up to follow after the xz premium. Kudos Sony.!
