Surficial, 08 Mar 2017I think you need one of those giant phones from the 80s.Nope my friend just a phone that fits to my big hand anything under 5.5 is too small and tablet is too large into my pockets. So
if this xz compact will be exactly like those specs i buy it instantly. we need more phones like this sony!!!

CPU performance it'll match sd810.
Responsiveness and day to day speed it will beat sd810.
And the weaker gpu is much less of an issue at 720p.

The mi mix is very hard to scratch with its ceramic build, but cracks easily. Higher hardness means less scratches and scuffs, but more brittle.
I'm sure sony can find a material that's sturdy and harder to scratch though.
Jumbo, 11 Mar 2017Exactly, I could have lived with the lower-specced X Compact if it had brought the style (glos... moreIndeed. It's not a bad phone. It's just a painfully average one. Awesome design, but it is a finger print and scratch magnet with that glossy back. I'm okay with plastic, but it has to be a high-end plastic build with at least some metal.

I think chipset manufacturers make a mistake crippling the GPU while only slightly dipping the CPU. Honestly with standard usage any recent CPU is more than enough. It's when you play games or do something productive/creative that the lack of good GPU really shows. I would happily take a slower 625 etc with an Adreno 530. Though I guess the battery drain goes into the other thinking a bit..

The other Compacts had a more high end plastic touch. For example, the Z5 Compact has the same frosted glass materials as the Z5.
gaaron, 11 Mar 2017Don't say that bro some people like x compact like me but i preferred this one specially when ... moreI actually think the X Compact is better than the X. Overall, the X Compact is solid phone with a good camera, decent chip and design. The only major problem for me, the phone removed 4K video and became a midranger rather than a flagship like the other Compacts.
Yoflows, 11 Mar 2017Yeah,I'm okay with the 820 chip because it is a smaller version of the XZ after all. The X com... moreX compact has no ip certification, but seems to be unofficially waterproof.
Durability wise it's definitely better than z3 series and I think z5 as well. Plastic is hard to break, whereas glass backs are not.
Jumbo, 10 Mar 2017I am still using Z1Compact because nothing since then has suited my needs for size & style... moresame here, Z1c has the best body, he only new thing I like is the power button and I hope they make this one on true black color not that blue universe stuff or whatever lol
Don't say that bro some people like x compact like me but i preferred this one specially when this phone is true...:-D Waterproofing is just a bonus for me specifically in my country its hot... phone with waterproof features are prone of getting heat because the phone is super sealed inside almost no ventilation... Even tiny itsy bitsy small heat inside will just multiply so the phone gets warm but if you are in cold country its not a big problem...and yes 13mp front is cool thing although i only use it in just in case situations...
gaaron, 10 Mar 2017Me too i hope specs are true but i doubt it because if this is true they will definitely destr... moreYeah,I'm okay with the 820 chip because it is a smaller version of the XZ after all. The X compact just compromised in a lot of areas with the durability, no 13mp selfie camera and no water or dust resistance like the full sized X. Even so, nobody wanted a compact from the X anyway.
Bro x compact have a low chance of laging it have 3 gb ram phone only lags when u only have 400mb or 300mb ram and many background apps running so always close the recent apps after using the phone...my zr dont lag even it have only 2gb ram just always clear the recent apps if u dont need it or using it...
gaaron, 10 Mar 2017And one more thing when you run out of ram the lag happens...I don't experience lag on my x compact unless I'm under 5% battery.
Barely experienced it on my moto x with 2gb ram.
So I'm pretty sure that'll be a non-issue.
Jumbo, 10 Mar 2017I am still using Z1Compact because nothing since then has suited my needs for size & style... moreWow good for you bro u got sony z1c while i got my sony zr its kinda old and legend...:-D yeah mental frame is perfect but i dont like glass back bro sorry...but what's important is what's inside and not a glass back hehe...:-D
