With the lower specs on this phone, something like the cheaper Galaxy A3 2016 version looks like a good alternative to this now.

People are hungry for big numbers forgetting they are not needed on a 4.6 inch phone and that 820 soc drains a lot of battery compared to 650 soc. 820 soc would be bottleneck for this phone. Its like getting a 1080 nvidia card and a i7 to run on your 60 hz monitor when that is not needed and you will not notice an improvement over a i5 with 1070 gpu. People that use brain know this was a smart choice from sony to keep the phone affordable and good enough to not see a real difference in daily perfornance. Trollers everywhere !
For the people who are saying z5c better than xc
And for the people who are disappointed because it has snapdragon 650 not 820
As a compact owner since the Z1c and now the Z5c, this looks like a definite downgrade from the Z5c with that 650 chip. No upgrading for me. I will be waiting to see if Sony comes out with a true flagship compact utilizing the 820 chip. Sony, if you are listening, the main draw of the Z1, Z3, and Z5 compacts was that you get all the power of the flagship device in a small package. The Xperia compact series have been the only serious iPhone contender these last several years. Had Sony marketed the phone better, the way Samsung plasters the world with their ads, I am sure the compacts would have sold better.

Best compact on market based on performance, Quality and Reliability
...just another Sony cell.
ugliest overpriced compact i've ever seen.

shame on you sony.
I'm a Sony Fan . I have Sony TV'S for many years , lap tops, & I had Z1 c, ZR , ZL, & Z3 C . This one has same size screen +bigger in length +bigger in with&thickness& only 100ma + battery & some little tech specs which are not big deal.
If they will built Z5 C with 4.7 -4.9 screen & same length of Z3C & 3000 battery, they would break all the records. But , They probably will not.... Or why would they come up with scrap (waste of Money for them & for buyers if they will have Z5C) . If they dont(Z5C) go (no, run ) & buy Z3C....The best so far.
So the best compact phone by far, and the only one I would consider buying...became just another phone. I thought these things were supposed to get better with time, not worse. Very heartbreaking, especially with all the hype this was getting before it was announced.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2016Best compact performance and Quality cell on market. I agree, there is no other choice for fans of small form factor devices. No mid range (SD650 level) devices are as compact as X Compact; sony wins by default. I think I'll be getting the white colour once it becomes available locally. I like the design and materials used.

Why does no one actually read the articles and press release. Sony clearly said this is a compact mid-range version for the X series, not the "new Z5 compact"!

Th... moreDude, why you so many people only focusing on numbers, try it then complain, you want snapdragon 820 for better performance for example, did you try it with snapdragon 650, or you people want 4-6 gb of ram, well, if you are a sony boy then you should know that sony doesn't need more than 3 gb of ram, do you want to pay additional 100-150-200 $ just for additional numbers???
