I already have been using this for a couple of days now and boy it lasts 1 day and a half non hardcore usage.

wonders why the UI hasnt changed since a long time. The current UI looks exactly similar to the UI of my old Xperia L, which had Jelly bean in it.
I have had z3c for just over two years bought used and I love the size of it and I looove android. All other phones are tooo big and now I can finally upgrade. Plus, those pink and blue colors are gorgeous.
Although I am super hyped for this I have to wait to get it. More apps need oreo support before I get it. Hopefully no serious pitfalls are discovered in that time.

I doubt you will notice the difference between FHD and 720p using 4.6 inch screen.
However , If sony chooses to go zero bezel design ? They can make a 5 inch phone the same size and then not only FHD is possible , also 4K screen on 5 inch display.
Lets hope that the next compact phone comes without those bezels ...
The only thing stopping me from getting this phone is the stupid 32GB or storage. that mistake killed the phone.
and I dont care about wireless charging. Qualcom fast Charging 3 is more important than slow wireless charging.
Sony should rename their xperia series to brick series, eg., brick XZ, brick XZP, brick XZ1, etc.

All new Sony phones with SD835 of newer should not suffer from overheating at all.

Well, you mentioned P10's advantage "bigger battery" where it behaves much worse than XZ1 Compact. What's the point of mentioning this then?
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017in which region can you get a dual sim XZ1 compact?I still have not seen anywhere official announcement from Sony that there will be a dual sim version of XZ1 Compact. I read from some website that dual sim version was planned but cancelled in the last minute :( So hopefully there will be one sometime in the future but I wouldn't bet on it...
If there are no bezel i would have brought one. Till then stuck up with shhit xa ultra.
AnonD-647882, 26 Sep 2017The xz1 compact back is glass not plastic.It's for the best.
I use a Z3 Compact and I've had to change the glass back panel twice in just about a year.
Plastic is more durable than glass so it is a better design choice, if you ask me.
PS: In all the cases where I cracked the back cover, the phone was in a protective case.
