Now this is very tempting only two things prevent me from getting this 1)No headphone jack 2)SCREEN ON THE EDGE OMG why, i really hate that

It looks exactly like others brand to me. At least my huawei did, will see for the Sony in two years. But I will never buy a phone just for the software update. I still use phone that didn't receive update since january of last year (old Lumia 8.1) and it is not less capable than when I bought it. No need for software update if there is no bug left. Security patch will be on the store.
And for me Xperia 1 doesn't compete for what it does, but for what it is, a gorgeous 21/9 screen with a really nice looking case without notch and without curved screen, nor ID fingerprint sensor.

What Nokia does is much better than Sony, because even though Nokia phones are not the best, at least they guarantee their phone software updates.

If you have small hands width is the most important thing; height less so.
I agree it could do with being shorter but if and when my xz2c dies, this is a possible replacement. I have doubts about the Pixels, and I need good water resistance.

I have also found that their cheaper treble is also higher than bass.
Sony completely has the great tuning/audio decoding of the audio quality that's great for music listening even for a long time. This is my Xperia Z2 experience.

RIP Compact series. This is not a worthy successor, more like Compact Max, i.e, not worthy of the compact moniker.

I don't understand why do some webpages and reviews continue calling this device compact. with over 150 mm height, there are lot of smaller devices available, which are more compact than this one. Also it's predecessor was more than 2 cm shorter - a true compact mobile.
Ali Bashir, 23 Sep 2019This video blew my mind, amazing! If people just knew how did they make it they wouldn't believe. Sony audio quality is great too! Recently I have try a new China phone I thought 5 year later the China audio must have improved but I was wrong. The China phone audio quality was a mess even my 5 years Xperia Z2 is better and much nice to listen. I compare with the same earphone, the China phone can't delivery the same quality like Xperia. I also try the same Sony wireless speaker, although the China phone does "shout out" some solid audio/bass but it isn't nice to hear, it lack of listening quality I can't listen for a long time with it so I can only set 50%~60% of volume more than that it must be uncomfortable/dissatisfied/ disaster. My Xperia delivery the nice audio with the wireless speaker and comfortable for listening, I had try the full volume it is much much better.

Bezels don't protect phone because both bezel and screen are made with the same piece of glass. Just need corners to be rounded so the the impact force will be evenly distributed.
