Anonymous, 21 Sep 2015battery endurance please, because im planning to buy xperia z3 compact but it keeps me confuse... moreI'd go with the Z3c. The price is better. S801 vs S810 is not noticable with a 720p screen and 2GB RAM. Instead, the S810 will drain the battery much quicker. Besides that, the sides of the Z3c feel much more premium than the sides of the Z5c which feel much more like cheap plastic. And the launch price is $100,- higher. Ridiculous!
The Z5c and the Z3c both support Quickcharge. But both come with a regular adapter in the box. You'd have to buy the UCH10 adapter to gain benefit from the quickcharge. The Z3c has a nice magnetic charge dock available (no opening flaps!) which positions your phone in landscape mode. The Z5c has an open USB port which would position your phone in portrait mode when charging in a dock. I prefer the landscape stance. I have my tablet in the same stance next to it and it looks awesome! The clock turns automatically when you insert it in a dock on android 4.4.4. I believe android 5 finally supports landscape stance on the home screen. It is just so much more fun to watch a movie or anything like that when you can put your phone in a dock.

"The only real question that remains to be answered is if they have succeeded to achieve Z3c battery endurance"
This is my own only remaing dealbreaker aswell. Everything else is perfect. I can accept 90+ hours in the endurance-test (compared to 101 hours for Z3c), but anything below that will be a dissapointment.
any significant change regarding video calling for the upcoming models?
why don't Sony mobile emphasis more on the compact series models? video calling features seems to have been opted out in compact series phone? why is it so?
This phone aims functionality, actual benefits, not gimmicks.
Water resistant, but no need to worry about flaps for charging and headset plug-in.
It only has 720p, but it doesnt need more because it has the 325ppi
It only has 2GB ram, but it wouldnt need more for a 720p screen, the rest would just consume more battery and give no real benefit.
Glass and aluminium, but scratchproof, waterproof,fingerprintproof and shatterproof.
9mm, because the latest flagships who became gimmickly thin, at 7mm, did it on the expense of battery endurance.
The only real question that remains to be answered is if they have succeeded to achieve Z3c battery endurance, standby times show that they might have failed miserably...
YR-OVI, 11 Sep 2015What i would change before release:
1: 3 Gb instead of 2 Gb RAM
2. 1080 display insead of 72... moreI agree with you. It's a very stupid thing to release it with only 2 GB Ram. The size is perfect.
Also, I would add a "home" physical button instead on the screen.
eklol, 16 Sep 2015it is 2gb. z5 and z5 premium has 3gbit only has 2 GB.
I really don't understand why Sony didn't put 3 GB RAM so that to be almost perfect. It's compact (not a brick in my pocket), nice looking but it needs 3 GB RAM and done...They would beat Samsung or Iphone...
Am a currently using Z3 Compact ,the phone is perfect except Wifi drops and didn't even update the phone to Lollipop5.0 .I hope the Z5 Compact has solved that issue ,the naked USB port/charging port is a superb improvement from the previous one.
Why didn't they do a Chrome version of this like they did for bigger Z5's? A Chrome finished Z5 Compact would've come more than handy. I'd really appreciate it if Sony could look into this.
junb2015, 10 Sep 2015I suggest Sony to remove the Z5 variant and made this Z5C a really high end with 4.7" FHD... moreIt's frame on borders isn't "plastic. They said it's aluminium but changed it apperance to looks like less than common aluminium....
I bought Xperia Z almost 3 years ago without seeing in first hand (just reviews and pics from internet...), with the Z5 Compact I'll wait to see and touch it before buying it...
But I really doubt that will decieve me.... I'll really love the new compact without flip covers... (On Z I really HATE THEM ATM.....)
