However, sad to point out, the Xperia X compact is no longer following Sony's former Top of the Line Compact legacy, the latest compact is just a mid-range phone, and alas no waterproofing. This is a no go for me. No thanks, I'll stick with my Z5 Compact.
My phones from Sony was and still are a dream come true, 3 compacts thus far. Sony makes great phones, you just need to get the top of the line. You shouldn't expect AAA quality if you only want to pay with peanuts for mid to low range Sony models
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2016what happened my friend please elaborate so others who are going to buy it may get help.... :)Hey there, be careful from trolls and lies, the anonymous which replied you is not the same which you replied, just be careful.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2016what happened my friend please elaborate so others who are going to buy it may get help.... :)I had Xperia M - GPS did not work properly from the start and my phone very often could not get coordinates at all. It was never fixed. FM tuner did not work at all from the start too but it was at least fixed after some time with a firmware update. Battery life was awful - it lasted hardly half a day with moderate usage. And in the end my phone died with internal storage failure and I lost my data. My friend had Xperia Z3 Compact with different hardware problems but similarly awful experience.

It's sad that almost nobody except Sony makes these compact phones. I prefer them but as a former owner of Sony phone will never buy anything from this firm even if it was only remaining phone in the universe. My phone from Sony was nightmare.

anyone could get me in touch with Sony to make a new compact phone but with a dual sim ... moreHi,
You can go to China and ask them to build a phone phone according to your specification.
You don't have to involve Sony in this.
You can buy Blackberry company because things are not working at their end.
Ali Bashir, 12 Dec 2016I didn't understand anything what you said. Can't understand your English either...
If this compact phone had dual sim card, the next day i would buy this phone.
MercuryCater, 12 Dec 2016no! kill it. this is the last small phone we got, dont you dare mess with itI didn't understand anything what you said.

anyone could get me in touch with Sony to make a new compact phone but with a dual sim device instead of one?
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2016Thanks, I have been doing that and I agree, this is the best compact smartphone at the moment.... moreXperia x "not compact" hight: 14.3 and five inches FHD display, amazing stuff, so what do you think?
Hey everyone, just wanted some feedback regarding an issue I began having this week with my X Compact.
Issue: The phone is not as responsive during the unlocking process as it once was. I used to simply swipe to unlock and the phone would immediately unlock with a simple swiping motion. Now, the phone requires a harder swipe before it unlocks.
Facts: 1) Smartlock is activated, 2) Phone has not been dropped or been damaged by water, 3) No other hardware or software issues are a concern at the moment, 4) The lock screen option is on "Swipe", 5) Phone is running the latest software (November security update), and 6) the regular Sony launcher is being used. :)
Any suggestions are appreciated.
Ali Bashir, 09 Dec 2016It looks like you are looking for a compact smartphone, for now this is the best compact smart... moreThanks, I have been doing that and I agree, this is the best compact smartphone at the moment. So far I prefer the height of the phone to be no bigger than 140mm. And if it can be close to a 5 inch screen size, even better. I am not focused on specs. But as long as it can be a good mid tier phone then I am game for it. The new Samsung a3 2017 looks like a decent one. I used to have the htc one mini and loved it. Too bad they don't make minis anymore. Currently rocking the s4 mini but it is slowly dying. Any more suggestions for compact phones
I hesitantly bought this phone as I had read for years how Sony phones have all kinds of hardware related problems (the most notorious one being cracked glass -issue that has plagued the Z-series). However, as it's slim pickings for compact phones right now (always used to get a Galaxy Mini). Now, after a month of use, I can honestly say this is the best smartphone I've had: the camera is great (slower than a Samsung camera, though), the build quality is great (love the plastic in terms of durability) and the battery life is more than great (without Stamina, I'm getting close to four days although I did apply different battery-saving tricks on the phone). Also, while I wouldn't test it myself, there is that rumour that this phone is unofficially water-resistant (if not waterproof) and the Japan-only model with the official rating is the same phone as what the rest of us got.
