Looks like I'm getting this as an upgrade from my M4. Everything is an upgrade (or the same) but damn that video quality is just not good at all (camera makes up for it).

A3 is worse than last years XA in every benchmark, just check A3's review.
While Xa1 is on par with sd625 and also on par with A5 in cpu performance, but weaker in Gpu performance.
A3 is expensive than Xa1, has 2gb RAM, 16gb internal storage and the most dreadful thing............. Larger bezels( less STB ratio).
But A3 has FP scanner and ip68 certification and better battery, whats your choice?

Anonymous, 11 May 2017Anyone remember ZL? It looks good. Hope they don't forget it.i had one, awsome phone with a great design and best STB ratio on it's time.i loved it more than the original Z.
Aspros, 09 May 2017Yet another big bezel monster, ok I understand that not every phone can have small bezels, as ... moreExactly my thoughts. The Z3 compact was amazing. I got one for my girlfriend and she loved it, I thought it was a great phone, and such great specs such compact. These days it feels like Sony did a 180 spin and can't even fit a few low-range components in a large body.
What is wrong with you, Sony? Ive been reading these reviews out of sentiment, but they just make me miss the times of the Z series until the Z3 compact. Such great phones for their times they were.

YourNicknameOptional, 10 May 2017Are you have to do what the other do for something that unnecessary? Yea, that stupid.Can't not accept it?
That samsung / sony fanboys war, when you can get a honor 8 for the same price, better on everything, and a lot of other phones are better in that price range than samsung A and xperia X.
