I guess the glue hardened with a slight twist of the panel from applying uneven pressure. I'll try to find the teardown to better understand the issue. Thanks

Seen a teardown and the back panel is really thin, but there's a rubber gasket between the panel gaps and the internals.
So I don't think it'll cause any issues but I don't think sony will do anything about it either.

The Note 7 battery we also can't see the inside, as long as it could function as normal battery like other, but unfortunately it explode and catching fire not like other.
Here is a photo of the uneven gap, I was complaining about, where the back plate meets the outer frame. In reality it looks worse than photo. What do you think?

Doubling the battery life is just... moreQnovo battery adapting charging technology is the best solution to the battery care, because it charging the battery with an intelligent way, the electric signals received by the battery's cell is more secure and it minimize any charging failure to the battery's cell and this will prolong the battery lifespan almost double up the battery lifespan.
You can't know how it works because all process is running in the smartphone's battery during charging.
I think the Google is free for searching the main source that I wrote here to justify it. Qnovo is always on research the battery charging tech in the real time, so please don't deny it functionality with your bias "review".
Good specifications, but just with it has replaceable battery and dual SIM and a real home/ back button.
Samsung do make small phones, but they are low spec.
Tann Hauser, 08 Feb 2017Fella, we are talking about battery degradation here, not battery age.
Owning so much phones,... moreWrong, the discussion has been about battery age, not battery degradation. I have stated that batterys usually last 2.5 years. Can't you understand that ?
Of course batterys degrade, everything degrades, including human beings. Even your prized Z1.
Your wrong about Qnovo. It only says a 2 year lifespan with Qnovo fast charging. All recent smartphones have fast charging of some type.
So, your personal 4 year battery dribble has no merit. Why don't you buy a Xperia X compact ? Your always talking about it. There cheap at $300. Can't you afford $300 ?
Dunno where you got Xenophobic from ? Seems you are Paranoid.

Owning so much phones, you must realize degradation is a fact.
Your phone battery can be 10 years old even, but battery endurance will be....well, probably wont work more than an hour.
Yeah, my z1c is now 3 years old, battery degraded to half of its endurance, so I changed it for a new one, now its on 1 whole day heavy usage again.
Qnovo promises to keep the battery endurance running 2 years on same level, so yeah X Compact battery is expected to degrade to half endurance in about 4 years.
Thats much longer than most people keep their phones before buying a new one.
And that is one more reason to choose Xperia X series over other.
People will not keep them as long to even notice degradation of endurance....
Which is a superb feature to have on a smartphone.
P.S. You have a right to be sarcastic, but not xenophobic.
Tann Hauser, 07 Feb 2017Well, assuming you owned every for at least 2.5 years for your battery claim to stand scrutiny... moreYou assume too much and assume wrong...there are multiple smartphones owned and maintained by me, which is no business of yours nor do I choose to tell you.
And if you read my comment correctly, I stated phones, not smartphones. Meaning I have even more phones owned and maintained by me.
Most phones that I have owned, including smartphones, had battery life well over 2.5 years.
If I remember correctly, you have been bragging about your Z1 with 3 years plus running its original battery. No qnovo on a Z1.
So my vast experience is indeed award winning stuff as you so politlely stated before. Well it is, compared to you anyway.
In my country, Z1 owners are usually 13/14/15 year old kids, due to parents only trusting them with an old, cheap phone. Probably the same in the USA where you immigrated to.
Chubby little cheap looking phone on the outside, normally I only want and use phones that look premium, but the X Compact has something special about it, a unique 'X-factor' or something haha. On the inside it can definitely compete with flagships like S7, HTC 10 in the performance department and those phones are almost twice as expensive as the X Compact where I live (Netherlands). I've got it for 330 Euro (430 minus 100 cashback promotion). The S7 is 610 euro, HTC 10 is 630 euro and XZ is 650 euro.
I've compared X Compact with my Galaxy S6 and the X Compact is consistently faster with web browsing and opening apps. Gaming also goes really smooth. Camera is really great also in low light, the laser auto focus does his job really well. Battery life I get around 7 to 8 hours of SOT on a full charge and standby is superb too. With S6 I got around 3h screen-on-time.. I still have the S6 but I pick up the X Compact all the time for browsing, youtube,gaming and social media apps because of the faster performance and comfortable one handed usability. The Sony X Compact also runs on Nougat, and the S6 still has no sign of that update yet. Yeah, they say in the first half of 2017 so Nougat can also arrive in May or July even pfff... Samsung not good anymore for me, now I'm a Sony fanboy :) They really know how to optimize software for smooth operation and great performance.
Honestly i am impressed, my first xperia phone is x compact and i really impressed
I used before a couple of samsungs, iphone 5s, many htc..but never xperia, but my wife got me this lovely mobile
I am surprised with the camera, performance and how easy to take a screenshots, nice widgets also but not like htc regarding this, and particulary the spectacular battery life on this xperia, this is the best mobile i ever used regarding battery
I have only very few comments, first it is a very thick mobile, i am not used to such a chunky body in my hand,
Second, xperia is a bit like iphone in the issue of lack of customisation of themes, fonts and so on, it is not like htc and samsung regarding this
But overall, i can say that really xperia is the best android mobile i ever used, sure the best, go get it guys, it is a very very good handset
