i own a z5 compact. and looking to buy an x compact. my wife has a SE. generally I feel that iphone's typing experience is superior to anything in the market. I do ok with z5 compact but i think I would do better on a SE. I'm not not a heavy texter. I stay on android because there are things you can't do in ios, but I own apple for all other devices (ipad, mac). also, the android voice to text is way inferior to apple (ipad), considerable more lag and more inaccurate. If you're a heavy texter I suggest you stay with the SE. if you don't x compact is probably for you. ALSO, very importantly - if you take photos (lots) my Z5 compact is in every aspect superior to SE - I took the exact same shot with both phones and my sony's was visibly better. in fact probably sony has the best smartphone cameras in the market today, which only makes sense as they've already beaten canon and nikon on the mirrorless photo cameras.
Can someone tell me if typing is bad on z5 compact or x compact? I have an iphone se and it ia rubish. The display is lifted because of the battery ... one thing iphone has is a very veru very good typing experience. I want to know if typing is ok om these 2 devices!!! Please help me!!

I had the z3 z3 compact z5 and z5 compact and now for a week with x compact . I will tell you that the x compact is supreme to all I mentioned above , I am not a gamer. but watch youtube , camera ,battery life , more warm and easy to read texts and smooth running operation better than all . At first before put my hands on the x compact I hated it on the specs alone but to my surprise the x is solid non fragile , I love the strong and none breakable glass, beautiful phone worth any penny . I will upgrade next year to the new compact hopefully with the snapdragon 835 .

do you think when it will be a cheaper?
This is in every respect worse than the one year older Z5 compact yet costs 20 bucks less on amazon. How? Why?
X Compact is capable to record 4K videos at 30fps. It is just you have to download Open Camera app from the play store. set it up to 4K 30fps and record.
Tann Hauser, 30 Nov 2016Yup, I couldnt care less for 4k video, never will use it.
But I do mind lack of waterproofing... moreCheck this video :
I think they are both waterproof but sony didn't declare about it just to avoid the warranty.

I am boggled why Sony didnt offer waterproof X Compact except in Japan. :-(
I only hope its secretly water resistant just as X is.
Micron, 29 Nov 2016what is better (your opinion). Z5C or X Compact, battery, front/back side quality, cam?Xperia x compact no doubt, just forget about waterproof and 4k video recording then Xperia x compact is much much better than z5c in everything.
what is better (your opinion). Z5C or X Compact, battery, front/back side quality, cam?
Down to £300 on giffgaff plus £50 quidco. Great price for this device
As a Nexus 5X owner I wanted something a little smaller with better battery life. As the price on the Sony Xperia X Compact has dropped it has gotten more tempting. Today, Black Friday, BestBuy has the X Compact for $350 plus tax. So I bought one. At that price you don't have much to lose if you don't like it. Other phones I was considering were the Google Pixel (5" display) and the Apple iPhone 7 (4.7" display). But I couldn't justify the higher price of those phones to myself based on my usage (light to moderate phone calls, texts, apps and browsing) no gaming. I'll use this for a year and re-evaluate when Black Friday 2017 rolls around. Newegg has a 128GB microSD card for $31 or a 200GB microSD card for $51. I'll probably get one of those to drop in the X Compact for storing music, pictures and videos. I'm looking forward to having a phone that more easily fits in my pocket. The 129 mm height of the X Compact should be noticeably smaller than the 147 mm height of my Nexus 5X.
TheWanderer, 25 Nov 2016Signal receptionI wouldnt know, I dont own one.
Ask someone who knows for dBm & asu values out on the open ( its under settings, about phone)
Lower the dBM andhigher the asu value, better the reception
Tann Hauser, 24 Nov 2016? You mean signal reception or product reception?Signal reception
Tann Hauser, 24 Nov 2016So he actually didnt pay up for combo device/case as it is now in sony store offer?
He ordere... moreYES, he DID actually pay up front for combo device/case as it is now in Sony store offer? Its clearly written in his complaint.
He ordered device and the case TOGETHER with one order. The initial express postage order.
Next, he was informed that the style case was unavailable.
YES, he had to pay a second express delivery for style case as Sony estore told him that, due to delayed availability of style case... The initial express delivery was already being procesed. Due to the unavailability of style case, a second postage was required and he had to pay for it.. It was impossible for both items now, be posted together. The extra 6- 8 days were nesessary for stock availability and second postage. (extra time after the inital express order) So, he was charged an unnecessary second postage. That is his complaint.
YES, to sum it all up there were two express deliveries, but he should have only paid for one as there was an error on availability. Sony estore error.
Yes, online ordering shortcomings can be very irratating. As for stores policy, returns, claims for unnecessary/extra postage costs, etc, etc, thats an entirely different matter and between the 2 parties involved. No comment from me.
Not sure if your being cynical or misunderstood his wording. You seem to write alright. I know English is your second language and maybe that is the reason. I virtuaully speak 3 languages, so I can understand that problem, and at times its very frustrating.
