SAMa, 03 Jan 2017I Think Xperia Z5 compact is still the best compact phone. Say no tho this overpriced phone a... moreI don't think that Z5 compact was the best Sony compact, frankly Z3 compact is better (almost the same as Z5 but much better battery time). But materials, wear resistance and assemble quality are not so comparably good (comparing to discussed A3 even 1st generation). Believe me, I had whole line of Sony compacts starting from Z1, they lost waterproof and became scratched very fast even in protective cases. And speaking about new Samsung A3 - I wouldn't say it's overpriced, comparing official prices of new A3 (2017) and prices of new Z5 compact. Though you're right - if we compare new A3 (2017) price and price of currently not the last Sony (e.g. Z5 compact, todays prices) - it won't be so good for A3. Unfortunately Sony lost the compact waterproof phones market, though it was almost one of the pioneers of it. Hope A3 will be successful - otherwise I even don't know what to do, I don't want to buy iPhones ;-)
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2017which do you like the last year a3 design or this?Frankly last year's design was better. but here we see minimalism. which here looks better. imo I'd prefer to have the led flash below the camera. to give it a more symmetrical design. (similarly to the ancient Galaxy S4) then It'll be DEFINITELY a device I'll buy.
I have a3 the first version this phone saize is very good and i want to change my phone with a3 2017 because it have good price and water proof and have finger print
I Think Xperia Z5 compact is still the best compact phone.
Say no tho this overpriced phone and iphone 7 (overpriced too).
Very disappointed. overpriced for only 2350 mAh, no gyro????? i dont like USB type C. But thanks for IP68, 2 GB RAM and 8 MP front camera.
OVERPRICED PHONE! still in the marshmallow, no ois, no fast battery charging, 2350mah battery only, 16gb storage, 2 gb ram deym and I dont like the design too I'll gonna go for last year a3 design due to the back phone design! So just add a little money you can buy high specs from other brand but i trust samsung so just go to A5 (2017) and add Â€100! If you like small phone with great design and high specs just go to Apple or Sony, samsung is not for you! sorry for my bad english
LeeHarvey, 03 Jan 2017I love the design, if the battery is 2700 mah then very goodwhich do you like the last year a3 design or this?
I need a gyro but not for vr, so I can take 360 photos on street view. I take them frequently and I need a tiny mid-ranger that can replace my extremely outdated Motorola droid mini which has a gyro and I was hoping for this phone. Now I realize that I shouldn't get my hopes up for anything samsung
SAMSUNG A3 (2016) has slick design. 2017 design looks cheap, and easy to break.
how good is this camera? comparable to s6 possibly? does it have OIS?
sirenk, 02 Jan 2017i agree, u cant use vr without gyro...You cant use VR on 720p display even he had a gyro. Evrn 1080p is little for good experience on VR
This phone is ABSOULTE AWESOME!!!!
Congratulation Samsung, You made it.
This phone is beautiful, small, water proof, good camera, fingerprint reader, and strong enough.
This is PERFECT!!!
Kfat, 02 Jan 2017why always gyro is missing in samsungi agree, u cant use vr without gyro...
