Sure I've never needed it, but it's piece of mind, for a critical piece of personal value. It's like not getting insurance on your car. You hope you never need it but the one time you do need it, you're glad you had it. I think it should be the default for allll phones.
If the X-Compact had waterproofing, I would get it. As it stands, I'm going to try out the XZ.
Davood , 02 Sep 2016You don't worry about the price of SONY products if it's a mediocre, simply buy your favorite ... moreIt's a good advice indeed. Newest Honor 8 is very nice looking and powerful device and definitely worth 400 USD (currently could be obtained for 350 usd with coupon). So you are right - no need even consider X Compact as potential purchase for 500 USD.

omg.. sony's designer must be thinking about spongebob squarepants.
a big sony fan but im supposing these phones too will have very low volume loudspeakers and for some weird reason my ears hurt a lot when use sony phones and no issues when i use other phones.. has to be some kind of radiation or signal sony phones emit

:-)) latest note = explode
latest sony = still the same failure
so S7 is the best. samsung is the winner.
I'm a big fan of the compact series but using a mid level SOC is rather disappointing. Although design is very modern looking
