[deleted post]Sorry, what i meant to say is: How can you say that those phones are compact phones? The only compact phones on that list are the Iphone and the Xperia Compact. The rest are large phones. Not phablets, but stil large phones.
It is bigger than XZ1..
In my opinion a compact phone has no more than 13,4 cm
Kalev, 24 Dec 2017"Compact".. What the heck..? Anything above 4.5"-4.7" is HUGE, not "compact". You are right. But this makes Sony XZ1 Compact the ONLY high end flagship. Gsma is very known for their biased view towards Sony. Basically if Sony earned some merit, gsma will do everything in their power to discredit them.
COMPACT = 4"-4.9"
Anything above is either regular, either phablet.
PUT YOUR GLASSES ON GSMA!
David Lane, 24 Dec 2017Haha sure people do, I own Pixel phone and I'm so happy with it anyway i did vote for S8. Only... moreYou are really naive if you believe that but if it makes you feel good, by all means, keep on believing that :)

Only because you are a fanboy and your favorite device couldn't reach more than 7% it doesn't mean other people are like you too.
Galaxy S8 for love, o own a Pixel 2 XL but before my Pixel I had a S8 and I can just say S8 is the King. A bit heavy and slow because if TouchWiz but seriously S8 is a beast.

SZTadir, 24 Dec 2017If people didn't think S8 wasn't compact then it wouldn't have made the top spot.
Whether it ... moreDo you really believe most people vote in polls on site like this one with any logical thoughts behind it? There are way too many "fanboys" for it to make anything out of these polls.
S8 is not a compact phone as many people have mentioned but even it it would have say "Note 8" Samsung would still have won.
Overall Sony Wins Because Its true Compact phone and most powerful
dudecool, 24 Dec 2017S8 and Pixel 2 are both close to 150mm tall, how are these compact phones? I totally agree with u.
dudecool, 24 Dec 2017S8 and Pixel 2 are both close to 150mm tall, how are these compact phones? The best compact car is Hummer...
But, Yep there should be some critery of what is considered what.
But is I have to chose what compact car is better. Three wheel 10 horsepower mini car or 8 tons weight Hummer... the Hummer win if They actually belong to the same small car gategory.
If people didn't think S8 wasn't compact then it wouldn't have made the top spot.
Whether it is actually compact or not is irrelevant. Though I would've liked for XZ1 compact to win. But Americans probably have something against Sony (may be somewhat justified), MKBHD also completely ignored Sony completely.

Gsmarena doesn't category the Sharp Aquo S2 into compact smartphone....
Let's compare their dimensions then:
S8 - 5.86 x 2.68 x 0.31 inches
Pixel 2 - 5.74 x 2.74 x 0.31 inches
XZ1 Compact - 5.08 x 2.56 x 0.37 inches
LG G6 - 5.86 x 2.83 x 0.31 inches
iPhone 8 - 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inches
Xiaomi Mi6 - 5.72 x 2.78 x 0.29 inches
Huawei P10 - 5.72 x 2.73 x 0.27 inches
As clearly we can see it is the XZ1 Compact and the iPhone 8 are considered compact based on their dimensions. And it is also clear that the S8, P10, G6 and Mi6 are hardly compact.
AnonD-664474, 24 Dec 2017Should've been just a battle between the iPhone 8 and XZ1 Compact, nothing more, nothing less.Yeap.. Just what I was thinking..
