Xperia X1 Compact is a good phone. Don't know about GSM Arena staff, but I don't mind the 720p screen, in fact it will help with high quality games...
However, I don't understand how a Sony phone in 2017 has "ups and downs in Audio Quality", whereas even Mi and Samsung are posting awesome scores.
This is the unbearable fact, at least for me.
Then again, the camera ain't an Ace anyways. The on board camera RAM is only used for one mode- 720@960. Not even a 1080 equivalent.
Don't know your opinion, but Sony isn't the same after Ericsson split..
WOW , Iam surprised by its solid battery performance ... & This phone is looking very solid also ,
If it had a 1080p oled screen and wireless charging I would buy it right now. Im using Samsung S7 now and had the Sony Z3 Compact before... with the wireless charging stand.
Amok, 26 Sep 2017you didn't noticed that this is compact device with sd835 and 720p right? surprised no! LOLUmm... Xz1 same capacity, fullhd 5.2" lcd = 82hour
A3 4.7" 720p AMOLED, low power cpu and 2350 mAh=93hour
So.... No excuse here
That battery life is much better than the x compact. If they put in a 2900 or 3000mAh it would have been pretty awesome.
Stinger430, 26 Sep 2017What are the advantages of having no bezels?It's easier to handle the device since it will have a smaller footprint/dimensions. Also easier to slip in the pocket and less chances of dropping the phone. I want sony to trim the top and bottom bezels. Hope the next compact will have smaller bezels and materials for better grip.
Why would GSM arena put the 720p screen as a Con? It should be a Pro for this phone size.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017Strange that it has smaller dimensions than the iPhone 7 but the same weight.And it has way way better battery life than the mediocre battery iPhone 7.
Too bad it probably won't be released here in the Philippines, I would have bought it in a heartbeat instead of the P10 (not that I don't like this phone, it's fine. It's just the size that is rather inconvenient).
Stinger430, 26 Sep 2017What are the advantages of having no bezels?The advantage of having no bezels is that u will get to crack up screen faster and buy out new devices from Ur parents faster
So disappointed that they won't release it in many Asian countries like the Philippines, would have waited for it to arrive and bought it instead of buying the P10 (which isn't bad, but it's rather big as I prefer smaller (> 4.6" screen) phones).
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017Strange that it has smaller dimensions than the iPhone 7 but the same weight.It's thicker and packing a significantly bigger battery.

Swim Swim, 25 Sep 2017128GB for big brands?
I would guess that might be standard for Androids in 2020... For me is ... moreHTC released the U11 with 128GB of storage ... LG G6+ also comes with 128GB of storage.
I dont understand where you get the idea that good brands dont offer large storage in their phones ..
Samsung Offers their phones with 128GB option the S7 , but stopped that in the S8
actually only Sony is lagging behind. SADLY.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2017More screen real estate for the size of the phone.
Looks futuristic.No... 18:9 screen are smaller.
LG should have done on G6 same of G4.
G4 is 5.5" but about 14,5cm tall.
6mm shorter than S7 Edge with same screen size.
G6 screen is smaller than G4 screen.
S8 has 1mm less than S7 Edge, screen area is probably smaller too.
