If you're going to shell out close to a grand for a flagship phone the least you can do is protect your new expensive gadget.
No more 3.5mm jack or compact version, horrible aspect ratio, uninspiring design gee I wonder what Sony's failing mobile division will think of next.

No? Ok 2400 mah battery then : ).
Shanti Dope, 16 Jan 2019XZ1 Compact is still very thick at 9.3mm, and that's just with a single 1/2.3" camera sensor. ... moreI'd advise you to care about comfort and not numbers. XZ2C is 12 mm thick, yet it fits the hand perfectly, so who cares about thickness?
Peteraven, 16 Jan 2019Xz1 compact was a battery of 2700 mah ,ok . I think 8mm would not be such a small battery lol XZ1 Compact is still very thick at 9.3mm, and that's just with a single 1/2.3" camera sensor.
If you want it at 8mm, you need to drop the battery capacity to as low as 2000mAh,.

Sony may have planned to use their Loop Surface design for about as long as how long they kept their OmniBalance design, but the market demand is too powerful for this aesthetic to appeal to the majority of consumers.
It is caused by haters who repeatedly whined about Sony having large bezels in 2017 and how ugly the XZ Premium/XZ1/XZ1 Compact were as compared to any other 2017 flagships, which clearly means that they really have to do something new to remain competitive, and now enters the 18:9 bezel less Xperia era, which unfortunately is very unsuccessful for being a year late in the party.

Anonymous, 15 Jan 2019Ugly, plastic case, square corners.It's an Olixar case, of course it's ugly. But you get enhanced protection.
Anyway, the better case makers out there make most of their cases for iPhones and Samsung phones - the market leaders. Choices are limited or non-existent for the 'strugglers' e.g. Sony and HTC. That's the sad truth.
I'm interested in XZ4 Compact but only if it has a stylish design (not a cheap Lumia like XZ3C look and materials) and 3.5 mm jack.

Anonymous, 16 Jan 2019The best smartphone experience is with a Redmi Note?I own a Redmi, and I gotta admit that I'm not having the best possible smartphone experience in the world, even for its price ('cause there are many better options now, some that even come from Xiaomi themselves).

The ones that I saw and really matter have corner placement. Ask the other non-Sony users here and they will say Sony puts their camera in the corner.
