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.

I have mobiles already 25 years and never had a broken screen or even a scratch.
Still have the Z3C and XZ1C that look and work as new.
I use the fingerprint on the side already 5 years and it works beautiful. never gets dirty, maybe you have to wash your hands sometimes

https:... moreEven if that were true, which from your first video was not and I will not waste time downloading a second 4K, it's not important.
Stills performance is far more important than video, or else before the smartphones caught up you'd be seeing far more Handicams sold than stills cameras, however the opposite is true, and the Pixel is still the overall champion in stills capture.

I was comparing the screen of my Xperia 1 with an iPhone 11 and galaxy note 10 and they seemed low-end screen next to the Xperia 1, I guess the Xperia 5 screen also ridiculed them
A height of 158mm is not compact. It's not. Give us a real successor to the XZ2 Compact with a height of 140mm or less and wireless charging and I'll buy it.
I love this phone, great size and seem excellent battery, but it's possible that they will sell at not so great price at HK$5988 (US$768) estimated which is more expensive than xperia 1 at HK$5699 (US$731), unless they will include decent wireless earphones as freebie during launch, i might consider huawei p30 pro which is currently at HK$5300 for 256gb and 8gb ram, unbelieve price, rather sad considering, i have had xperia phones since Xperia arc in 2011 and even longer, my first sony ericsson s700 which was in september 2004
Xinito27, 23 Sep 2019nobody can compete on video with the Xperia Now thus is someone who knows Sony cell tech!
