Literally the only interesting phone on the market right now and it would be stupid to suggest making it bigger just to take advantage of the hardware. That defeats the whole purpose of making a "compact" phone. If anything, it can be made smaller still, by shrinking the footprint, i.e. smaller bezels.
If Google made a Pixel the similar in size to Sony's Compact series, I would be all over it, no matter how expensive because it would be the only fish in a sea of phablets.
32gb internal storage "compact flagship"!
64GB should be the bare minimum in 2017 for flagships!
SD cards cannot be used for apps, even if it could apps would be very slow, and SD card life very short!

Battery life better than Z3compact, now that successor. Now only to have that eternal camera processing to get better and put there f1.6 or bigger aperture. Wonder if asking for full-infinity-screen and cpu with npu would be impossible for next gen.

Hi, thanks for a great review @gsmarena - are you sure there is a dual sim version available?
I don't understand how 720p and no HDR is a "main shortcoming". Is a 4.6 inches screen, you don't want to see shiny full HD movies or whatever on it, is a compact phone for endurance, there's no need for a huge resolution.
Omg!!! amazing battery life into small monster device.. Wow wow... 2018 I'm sure sony come to new design and something different than others... And what about xperia xa1 plus 3450mah battery? Omg I'm so excited to know...
