Should I buy this phone? Or wait a new compact version that will come??
Ali Bashir, 31 Jan 2017The x compact is better with everything but it is not waterproof, and it doesn't record 4k. X compact can record 4k video with third party apps.
X compact seems to be unoficially waterproof, whereas z5c is certified and has a warranty for water damage.
Z5c has a more powerful gpu, but xc has enough power for 720p gaming.
But real world x compact is a better device

i bought the z1 compact a few years ago and now i need to change it and want the x compact. it´s really a better "compact phone" or it´s better the z5 compact than the X Compact?

Could be. I'm not sure why quality control haven't rejected my copy. I guess I'll have to live it. It's perfectly sized for my hands compared to my previous largish Huawei P9

There's an app called xperia water test that checks if your phone is airtight when you press on the screen so you could see if the gaps are more than cosmetic.
Not sure if you could get a replacement though
I bought a white Sony X Compact yesterday. I really like the display, size and performance of this device, but I am a little bit disappointed in the build quality specifically regarding the back plate alignment. The front (display) side was good (no problems detected) but the back plate does not seem to be perfectly aligned at the top and bottom (as if there is a slight twist). There is an uneven gap near the top edge where the back plate meets the outer frame (more of a gap on the top left side than top right). And a similar (but less obvious) uneven gap at the bottom where plate meets the frame (less severe than top gap).
I don't know if this could be the color white where it is easier to detect flaws like this or is my phone not built within factory tolerance? Is this normal among owners of X Compact? Please have a look at the back plate / frame I would be most interested to hear any comments
Ali Bashir, 26 Jan 2017You are welcome :).Ali , i have 2 question
1-do u know how can i sync my newest version of whatsapp (on Nougat) to whatsapp windows version on pc? ( i did it before with blackberry via qr scanner in bb10) but in android i cant find any scan option in setting.
2-do u know how can i dedicate and customize a different sms ringtone for each contact? i mean for example 5 different tones for 5 different contacts? ( i did it with all call rongtone, but i cant see any option in contact setting) indeed i dont want to use any extra app for it, i want use it if its available in Nougat by default.

i think smaller and shorter dimension is not available easily becoz it surely will ... moreHello Nima, excellent suggestions of older phones such as the Sony Z1 compact (found in your link). I do prefer current models because who knows what happens to the battery sitting on shelves for so long and where I'm living it's not even possible to buy a "new" older phone (only a used one which I prefer to avoid).
Thank you all (Martynas, Nima, Surficial, Ali Bashir) for your great comments, suggestions and advice. Most of you did not like the Iphone SE display; noted. I do prefer to stay in the Android device ecosystem so my only choice is the Sony X Compact (highest performance device with the shortest/narrowest dimensions).

There was a 4.6" xiaomi with sd820 rumored but don't think that will be getting released.
I recommend this or an se if you want something smaller than it
i think smaller and shorter dimension is not available easily becoz it surely will be less than 4.7 or 4.6 inches screen, maybe old phone u may buy.
maybe link below help u (see the table bottom of the webpage):
Nima, 23 Jan 2017Anonymous: use this link and categorize your search according to wat u wantI'm not sure how to do that. I'm looking for a 650 SOC or higher and dimensions shorter and narrower than a Sony X compact. The advanced search is not so user friendly.

No, only x compact. Iphone SE is compact device with a great performance, but the screen is bad. I wanted compact phone too, but there are just a few options, so I went with honor 8. And I will wait for xperia x compact successor.
