Anonymous, 29 Sep 2017JDI = Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba The oled project between Sony/Panasonic ended years ago. ... moreIt has NOT ended, they formed a new company called JOLED and they've been doing R&D since 2014 and have made some huge advancements this year in high yield with inkjet printing. JOLED will merge with JDI next year to cross license technologies.

More than 400mah a day of phone idle?
I am wondering did you guys really tested XZ1/XZ1 Compact's battery life.
I've a friend brought XZ1 and another friend brought XZ1 Compact. Both of them have "Phone Idle" drains battery issues. This issue starts in Sony's Android 7 firmware and never fix till now. Search on Sony Mobile's support forum and you'll see.

In your review on last years Xperia Compact you complained about the Volume rocker's awkward position on the Right side, "The volume rocker is below the power button, and we've been rambling on and on how Sony has placed it too low for comfortable operation" In this latest review you say the Volume button is on the left side??? and neglect to mention the button has moved to a new position??? Hmmm.
So disappointed that it wasn't released in the Philippines and many Asian countries. I would've bought one in a heartbeat instead of the P10 (not that I regret it though, battery life is pretty good and camera quality is pretty excellent, it's only the size that is kind of off-putting).
"Yes, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is probably the fastest phone right now, no matter what some score cards are telling you."
AHHH!! quite an assurance!!!
AnonD-690051, 30 Sep 2017omg that bezel is so huge. the second one from right really looks like a brick. lolHave you seen the ip8 bezel??

I am getting huge signal strength fluctuation with this phone. It keeps going back and forward between full signal strength and no signal at all. Sometimes I have to wait 15-20 minutes to get mobile data at all where as I get full stable signal with the same Vodafone and O2 SIMs with other phones. This issue makes the phone unusable.
Anyone else is having this issue?
Its amazing that in the android landscape the only 4.7" choice is the XZ1 Compact or the A3.
I was tempted to buy an A3 and go sim only but the price has not budged here in UK since launch all the way back in March. I am loathe to enter another 2 yr contract but I think the XZ1 Compact offers enough to get me through without regretting it. It's actually priced very well by the carriers Vs. the XZ1.
PS. Agree with Droag below about protective cases adding significant bulk. I had a Pixel but with a Supcase it was size of a 5.5" phone. 4.6"/4.7" with a case and you're looking at around 5" mark. Need the case for work!

IP68. 3.5 mm headphone jack. Great compact body without compromising on flagship internals. Good screen. Outstanding battery life (A return to form for Sony after many years). Qnovo & Stamina. Android Oreo from Day One, with close to stock look.
Superb performance with awesome onscreen GPU performance. Great Sony propreitary multimedia package. Good camera's (front and back) too.
After the XZ Premium, the XZ1 and the XZ1 Compact, it's safe to say that SONY IS BACK!!!
Now waiting for that stunning all-new bezelless Sony flagship.
