Better performance, camera and battery life. Also just got nougat and has 2 more years of updates, where z3 is stuck on lollipop

The numbers show there is a slight improvement of around 20-40 min. Depends on the person if it is insignificant or significant. But there is improvement with the update. I did my own research haha, I just think both guys are too extreme. My opinion is yes there is improvement, but not by a large margin. I would update either way, maybe it would help with battery life in the long run.
i can smell that someone is trolling. LOL
I have already placed my order and will be getting my hands on my xperia x compact tonight. will post my personal review/opinion once i have it up and running. :)

You have just contradicted yourself by your own reply.
Why do I need to even discuss this?
The links and numbers are there.
What the ... is wrong with people like you?

Nothing about the huge battery improvement that you ridiculously claim and ridiculously want to believe.

I've upgraded to android 7 on sony xperia x compact not such a big difference it is almost similar if u ask me keep android 6 u dont need nougat it doesnt make big differences.
Don't waste your or my time by net trolling again to satify your infatuation of Sony. Knowing your history here, very few believe anything that you say.
BTW, your links are in some bizzare Eastern Block language that no one understands.. Have you forgotten the rules here "English only"

You don't even own a recent smartphone, only an ageing Z1. At least I own a Z5. And I don't believe such battery improvement is possible. Knowing of your past behavoir here, I would say that you have trolled the net for hours to find that wrong info.

thanks for replying. What is the advantage of having 4k video recording, sure don't mind having waterproofing for my phone for now. But 4k video recording got me interested.
PCMark batterytest of X Compact before nougat was about the same as XZ (6:36h against 6:17h):
Now in PcMmark its significantly higher, 659min of X Compact (nougat) against XZ 467min (without nougat).
So yes, a very significant increase in X Compact batterylife after nougat update.
As is on XZ with nougat(unfortunately not seen here, as rev was without updated XZ)

X Compact batterylife HAS improved with nougat and nobody here said otherwise.
confused, 09 Jan 2017x compact or z5 compact?If you can live without waterproof and 4k video recording then Xperia x compact is much much better.
AnonD-481725, 10 Jan 2017Why are you asking for removable battery, you may not remove it before 2-3 years of usage,
1... moreYou don't own this phone. Yet, claim that battery life has improved after Nougat update. Some users here have said that there is NO improvement.
Stay with your Z3 phone and only discuss what you know, instead of blinding lying and promoting other Sony phones.
AnonD-141584, 10 Jan 2017Great size. But shame it does n't have DUAL SIM or removable battery.
Why are you asking for removable battery, you may not remove it before 2-3 years of usage,
1) because of the excellent battery care
2)720p 4.6 inch display + snapdragon 650 + 2700ma battery + sony smartphone = amazing battery life especially after Nougat.
Great size. But shame it does n't have DUAL SIM or removable battery.
AnonD-629328, 07 Jan 2017Thanks for the quick reply. Does anyone know if Sony plans to release a new compact phone in 2... moreMost certainly yes, they release a Compact every year. But probably about september 2017.
In 2016 they released this one, but unusual for them, with midrange SoC. Remains to be seen if they will release some Compact with flagship rate SoC in the meantime (march-april).
Sony just keeps it all mostly under wraps, with only mostly madeup false rumors, so no one really knows what they ll come out with until its official.
Although performance wise, (as far as my needs are concerned tho, not a heavy gamer) X Compact has the UI speed and almost all flagship features I care for, with an excellent midrange SoC, for a very good price now.
