My only slight niggle with previous generation handsets has been the volume. It was a bit on the low side.

Id rather choose a S650 phone with 4.6", HD display than a S625 with 4.6" FHD display.
Snapdragon 650 is as fast as the 810 in Xperia Z5C, but the Snapdragon 625? No.
Sound is low speakers suck and sound to earphines is hollow and metalic plastic case will be scrached
Flossy420, 07 Sep 2016Yeah How about a 2" with 6k display?FHD is the upper limit for below 5", QHD the limit for below 6". 4K makes sense only for 7" and above.

Every Xperia user knows why that number count
Dont know bout your Htc though, guess it aint that good in optimizing.
You should try an Xperia too dummy

They have similarly unrealistic numbers. I've already mentioned Z5c's 520 hours. HTC A9 barely last 2 days without touching it once, yet it gets a 432h 3g standby rating. That number is meaningless on a smartphone.
hope this would be a water resistant phone same with z5 and if possible a dual sim for this phone this would be a great phone, xperia x compact will rock in the philippines people here always like dual sim phones..

What release date we looking at for us? Will they once again leave out the fingerprint scanner? If so I'll be going for the international model again.

X Compact got 750hr.
XZ stands out above all too.
Thats Sony optimization for dummies.
If they used S625 with 3G RAM, 32G Storage, and a FHD display on a 4.6" screen, ip68 water and dust resistance it, it would be a worthy successor to Z5C. But for now, not really a good upgrade, win some, lose some, S625 with IP68 would be good upgrade.
pretty sure they mean it without any smart phone functions. Even the Z5c with the horrendous battery life gets 520hours rating.
Lol 710 hrs standby time for real? If its true, we're in business...
Tann Hauser, 05 Sep 2016Whoa!
Just seen that standby time 750hr on 2700mah battery.
Outstanding!Lol Tann! Fast charging?? lol
The battery life of this smartphone is endless, lol.
Chaos X 1982, 04 Sep 2016S650 is too power hungry a SoC for such a small phone. Sony should had used S625 and make it I... moreI'd agree with this. If they didn't go for the performance, why not go for power saving with a SoC on a more modern process.
Of course, being a performance junky, I am truly disappointed that they did not put in a top shelf SoC with ~4.6-4.7" 1080p screen. Also, not available with that sexy forest blue color.
