AnonD-579225, 01 Sep 2016And I just read that once again Sony has decided not to include the fingerprint scanner in US ... moreIt's actually included...just not activated (Software disabled). Simply Flash a non Us software and Voila...
But to tell you the truth I have the feature and I rarely use it
rakesh0991, 01 Sep 2016as a sony lover i m dissapointed with x compact...no sd820, no waterproofing..it shoud not be ... moreSony Xperia X compact truly deserves it's name. There was never a compact version of Z series phone, which would be better than the flagship itself. For example Z5 compact does not have better specs (better chip and etc.) than Z5, so why on earth would you want Xperia X compact to be better than Xperia X (it is not Xperia X performance compact or Xperia XZ compact). Sony Xperia X compact still has the same chip as Sony xperia X and it does make sense. We only need is justice in pricing of the compact version of not-so-flagship phone that Xperia X was.
There its like many enchantments on Xperia XZ and X Compact its like Laser AF,Color Sensor and Flash. Lets see
Dont cry samaung fanboys, the next pole in Dxomark is for xperia Xz ok?
AnonD-579255, 01 Sep 2016Why are the reviewers all allergic to plastic? Glass breaks. Plastic doesn't. Is your car made... morePeople hate it, because it's cheap. Everything about it's cheap. If you drop it, it easily dents. It feels very cheap in the hand, and any paint on it will easily chip away. Where glass excels in beauty, and metal excels in durability, plastic doesn't.
Yeaah!! This best than obsolet S7.
S7 no usb C
S7 no Have soun hi res
S7 have a obsolet camera of 12 mpx whith garbage video stabilitation.
S7 no have stereo speakers.
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2016No waterproofing, sadly..XZ is waterproof, it does support IP68
would love to have bought the compact in the deep forrest blue of its big brother as it is so smart looking
Jeremy, 01 Sep 2016Another disappointing flagship from Sony. I think their mobile division is sinking. Where is 4... moreSOny's phones run smooth with 3gb of ram as much as others with 4 gb.
Also IOS is not needed. SOny's phones like Z5, X and XP are producing top class pics without it.
Get your head out of the spec sheet & look at real life performance.
Finally SONY show New Camera software that support manual shutter speed
The xz has a pretty good design.
X compact is disappointing on a few levels. Plastic. Sd650.
I guess we just have to accept bezels as a part of Sony design. Main problem is the price. They need more aggressive pricing.
I was really hoping for a successor to the Z5 premium. While the display was overkill in terms of resolution, had they simply replaced the 810 CPU with an 820 or 821 CPU I would most portably have got one. Unfortunately it seems Sony are not interested in doing a phone with same size screen that can even match the Z5 Premium let alone anything better. Then to make matters worse they then trot out for the most part mid-range phones at top-tier prices and somehow seem to think we all be fooled in to thinking they are hi-end. I know Sony have stated they could move away from the mobile arena but a group of over-priced sub-standard phones that are little better or worse than what they are meant to replace does seem a rather extreme way of doing it.
And I just read that once again Sony has decided not to include the fingerprint scanner in US models. smh
I don't know what the hell is wrong with you people. Too many bad comments against sony. I am pretty sure most of them never used a Sony phone. Just bashing Sony for sick enjoyment for their pathetic life. If you can't afford to buy a Sony just get lost. Glass back was always a bad idea. Sd650 is a great choice too because its easy on battery.
Tann Hauser, 01 Sep 2016Correct....
It doesnt deserve the Compact fame.
This is an awesome mini tho. Still better ... moreYep you are spot on not a compact its a mini, and is an awesome mini.
But is it an awesome Sony, when Sony used to mean waterproof and high end materials.
This may be a awesome Samsung mini but not an awesome Sony mini as from Sony we expect better.
Jay, 01 Sep 2016Cannot disagree with your comments, but lets get a couple of other things right.
Compact = pr... moreCorrect....
It doesnt deserve the Compact fame.
This is an awesome mini tho. Still better than any mini/compact device competition offers.... ;-)
