Anonymous, 08 Sep 2016It's still the most powerful 4.6inch Android phone around.That may be, but Sony cutting down on specs and features compared to the big brother, is kinda killing Compact brand for many fans of those phones (myself included).

Fireworks, street lights, anything, limit is your imagination. Sold my Nikon DSLR and Fuji mirrorless earlier this year just because I got fed up to carry the load. All I want is a smartphone with a proper shutter priority mode

friends this phone is waterproof just like xperia x but sony don't say anything about that for some reasons.

Alex, 09 Sep 2016)) yes yes...but SE made from metal + superb design...and yours Comact is all from plastic-huy... moreSo basically, if a phone comes in metal clad body, you will accept it regardless of its specs. Well that sums up the entire iPopulation actually.
Apart from camera, this phone is not so impressive either in terms of specifications or look wise, battery is nice but that makes this phone quite thicker. Compact phone lovers would definitely buy this otherwise lots of better options are available in its price range. I wish Sony could keep pricing little lower side and add capacitive buttons, because no one wants to sacrifice a portion of screen of a compact phone in onscreen buttons.

No IP68? Why not to finally move 3,5 jack to the bottom?! Z3 still the best phone (yes, camera is bad).
Long time Sony fan here, my family had only Sony phones since 2004. Recently I had the Z3 compact and now the Z5 compact. Really disappointed by this x compact. Saw it yesterday in a store, handled it and it is nowhere near the Z3/Z5 compacts. Those felt premium in the hand, this just feels cheap. I know it's personal, but I find the design very disappointing too. Furthermore, don't know how Sony managed, although it has the same screen as the Z compacts the X compact's screen seems very small, even when I placed my Z5 compact next to it. The only redeeming feature is the new shutter priority mode for the camera, but even that's weak, with a slowest shutter speed of 1 second. All nokia's do 6 seconds, even huawei does 8 seconds, 1 second is really not enough for some nice slow shutter effects. Really disappointing.
AadiRizvi, 09 Sep 2016Did you complain too when the iPhone SE came out with a price tag of $450? It is a compact too... more)) yes yes...but SE made from metal + superb design...and yours Comact is all from plastic-huyastic...
AnonD-122669, 09 Sep 2016only alternative is Z5 compact & iCrap which was released just now.Two things are holding me back from Z5 compact one is a 2 gig ram phone and some argue that X compact is better than Z5 compact what do you suggest
Lola = LOL
Yea, Sony makes good, makes my job easy ;-)

It is a compact too and is not better than X Compact. Oh i forgot, thats Apple, right. It has a right to price higher than the market.
John snow, 09 Sep 2016Guys are there any alternatives to this ? or is this the only of device of its kind this year ?only alternative is Z5 compact & iCrap which was released just now.
SD650 is a beast. Xperia X that contains it can match the performance of many other supposed flagships like HTC10, LG g5 & even iPhone 6. Go check the videoes on youtube.
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2016So because there aren't many decent compacts to choose from, it should be expensive? Sony can ... moreIt is not expensive ! Among the other companies ( not chineese) this x compact has normal pricing. And yes they have the right to make the pricing the way they want since there is no competition on the compact segment. People complain so much about 650 soc like they are some kind of experts when the real world difference wont even be noticed. Ofc if you want to be a cool guy and impress your friends with your big Antutu score then get another phone .
