So arena, wheres X Compact review already?
Its on the shelves already
Iam just wandering, why GSM arena and some other websites are in a hurry to review a pre unit which has incomplete software. Reviews should be done exculisevly for the retail units where everything is complete and finalized. Now people may get a bad impression about the camera performance and some other aspects about the phone. Yes, they informed us that the unit is not finalized, but always the first impressions remains in the memory and cant be wiped easily.
Tourettes Guy, 13 Sep 2016Keep dreamingseriously , you can download and compare sample images of each .
Sony fans can do or say anything to improve sony features .
Every year , Sony moves backwards with its flagships keeping old flagships' features on new flagships as : FHD , camera sensor , RAM , display size and other since z2 and reduces battery power as : z2 has 3200mAh , z3 has 3100mAh , xz has 2900mAh.
I am not a sony hater but my real deam is that sony make much better flagships .

AnonD-404798, 13 Sep 2016you are joking right ? bc those phones don't have two big camera senors in their bezels like S... moreWell, there's always the Nexus 6P and ZTE's Axon 7, however these do have a bit too big bezels for my taste. ~71.4% and 72.2%, no thank you. Well, seems like the perfect device with all the bells and whistles with reasonable bezels isn't even out yet or at least I couldn't find it using the 'Phone Finder' -feature. I guess I'm asking for a impossible combination, at least for today's technology.
I don't like the design, too boxy, uncomfortable sharp corners, polycarbonate (plastic) frame, only rear is metal (ALKALEIDO is fingerprint magnet) and mineral black color is just meh IMO :-/ even the jet black iPhone 7 looks better than this ugly brick phone.
But yeah this is the best smartphone of the year (in fanboys' dream) :-p
if you likes very much the xz sony design then you must praise and proud to nokia lumia 730/735 and lenovo k900 design haha :D
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016And here's one great example from stone-age (2014) of how to make a phone with front-firing st... moreyou are joking right ? bc those phones don't have two big camera senors in their bezels like SONY have ( no protruding camera ) , no fingerprint sensor on the side , not waterproof and both phones are monstrous in size 6'' . and mate 8 doesn't even have stereo speakers . so yes it's possible that way if you exclude half of the hardware form the bezels ...
Nick Paschalidis, 13 Sep 2016It's ok if you dont like this "shit" people have preferences.However do you know what is shit ... moreAgree with you.
Some people are just haters or trolls. Don't bother.
Some people do not realizes that baseless phones are uncomfortable to operate with. I do not argue about Nexus 6, but this is a phablet and I do not use such since Note 2.
For me XZ is my next device. I like very much the design, especially in that Forest blue, I like front speakers, IP68 etc.
I'm just concern about the camera quality and screen. Last few years using Nokia 1020, 930, 808 and I used to AMOLED. Hope Sony LCD is good enough to finally jump from windows phone to Android. I do not like iOS, but that is personal opinion. Not trolling or something. Everyone have his own preferences.
[deleted post]It is anyway a good start for comparaisons, hard to find on other sites.

They belong on the right side of a phone in my opinion and fingerprint scanner is located the best on the front of the phone.
[deleted post]Im not a hater :D i only know what i see and all the front of sony smartphones always been unappealing to me so why am i always do the bad comments :D

If you play games on this phone with that wide bezel and landscape screen, your fingers will be slightly difficult to achieve on-screen control everytime, so why little bezel one are great choice than this shit

They don't have the stereo speakers - wasn't even paying attention to that feature, sorry about that. LG also screwed it up with the G5 and overall LG as a brand is on the lower quality -section (along with Sony and few others) for me personally. Yeah, it's good that there are options for everyone - couldn't agree more. :)
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2016Nope nope nope nope. Z2 is the last Xperia device deserved the flagship title.And you really have no idea of what you're talking about. Ever since the X series, Sony has changed most of their things

Having those two excellent features would require a 6" screen size. That's why HTC used to have large bezels during the M6-M9. That is mainly caused by the dual BoomSound front stereo speakers
