Mr. Mobile might be disappointed.
I'm going for thr older Xperia (Z5/Z3-Premium/Compact,

Not number of pixels. 5 MP would be enough for selfie. But. They improved light sensitivity - lens aperture is f/2.2 against f/2.4 in XZ1 Compact.

They should cancel it. And switch to XZ3 as fast as possible, fixing all issues. In other way. Compact series would be effectively dead.
It should be 129x65 maximum and 7 mm thin maximum.
It should have flat sides, so you can hold it in your hand.
It should have 5'' display and should finally have JOLED.
It should have f/1.6 lens.
It should be water-proof IP68, not water-resistant IP65.

With that said the design is shit and an htc rip off only thicker at 11.1mm with no headphone jack. Now that's unforgivable
I have wait for the new compact but the x compact and the xz2 compact that is nothing the x is not a flagship and the xz2 compact is not a compact 5" display ok but bazeless better was the 4,7" bazeless than wee have a compact phone but not with this Dimensions 135 x 65 x 12.1 mm and 168g that is a brick

So, by remiving the proper jack we are actually advancing to 2010 tech.
How awesome is that!
I have been an fan of Sony since growing up with the PS and PS2. I have always loved their tech from TV's, mp3 players, handheld consoles, tablets, & ect, but I am very disappointed in this redesign. As seen on other comments, I was willing to compromise with the 18:9 ratio and fingerprint placement (even though on the bigger one it's dead center on the back which is gonna be hard to maneuver for one hand use). But the design and headphone jack is the deal breaker for me. How is the Remote Play accessory going to fair holding this new device??? How can you justify an adaptor as a way to plug in 3.5 mm jacks??? I always knew Sony paved the way for popular phones today. Glass sandwich design, water and dust IP Certification, Stereo Speakers, & now Slow Mo camera, but to purposely adopt trends from manufactures shows that you're no different than any other smartphone company. Hopefully Sony can come up with something other than this POS to prevent true Sony fans in the bag.
Absolute disaster. Sony designers are worth shit. So huge you can forget bezeless feel plus no jack. Sony is a joke
They are expensive but now the appareance is cheaper. They removed the audio jack, lowered the selfie camera to 5 Mp while was 8 Mp before, they don't have OIS being a flagship phones. And the compact comes with less features. What were the designer thinking while developed these phones? That we are idiots to pay more for less? No! No money to buy these crap. Do it better next time if you want us to be customers again, we deserve it in future models. Now searching out there to buy new phones from other brand. Bad move Sony, sad.
Sony has copied HTC U11. It looking like a HTC U11 from the back side. Sony should purchase HTC if they like the design of HTC so much.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018In case you haven't noticed, all the shameless companies are the ones making profits. Like Sony's camera division?

The downgrade of the front camera is also unforgiveable. Although I don't use it often, the use of a tiny 5 MP sensor compares badly with the competition. And the bezels. Sony trimmed the top and bottom but forgot about the sides. The XA2 shows that they can do side bezel-less design, but somehow they don't go the full 100%. Finally, why does Sony persist in pairing their great sensors with a small-aperture lens? Yet again, they refuse to provide the perfect package of a great sensor with a wide aperture lens. I use a Sony camera, and it is amazing how they have the technology but they insist on crippling their products by omitting basic functions. The mobile and camera divisions are the same. Something needs to change at Sony.
