Surficial, 12 Mar 2017Got a carbon fiber skin getting delivered for mine soon. How grippy is it?It changes the feeling, it feels more firmly when you hold it. It also protects the back from scratches and fingerprints but I don't care too much about this. Be careful when you stick it, it should be exactly in the middle. I found a guy who cut them with some laser machine, I am analyzing the possibility to cover the sides too lol.
Bought this after Galaxy A3 2017 and I'll stick with it, it's a good nice phone.
- decent compact size (could be a bit smaller though)
- decent camera, good performances, radio, memory etc
- usable with one hand, see above.
- Nice features: photo button, screenshot on power button etc.
- no amoled but good screen. The difference is when you look from angle, like when used as gps in a car.
- No water resist but it may be ok at splashes.
- needs a carbon fiber skin on back for better handling, it slips a bit.
- total lack of corners not an advantage at handling.
When you hold it it looks nice, in pictures looks more like a brick.

Howev... moreOK, that may be true for your good self, but mine does come with the 410 as this is the only Sony device I own. I bought my X Compact from southeast asia. Thanks for confirming the problem, unfortunately I do not own a time machine to follow your advice. :-). It's cheaper to buy a new pair at this point... Looking forward to the XZ Compact! (hopefully with less top/bottom bezel)

However, I also have a pair of MH410c, about a year old, and they started having the same problem with the rubber band. You just need to handle them gently.

I need help I really want to buy the compact x. I have a z3 compact and I am a huge fan. But I have questions about the body and speaker. Is the plastic body good quality, is it sturdy. No where can I see the phone or hold it in my hand before buying it. Don't want something flimsy.
