ying zu, 02 Oct 2016zx compact must apear , compact flagship , water proof maybe 1980x1080 resulution and 4k video... moreI don't think a XZ compact will ever materialize any time soon. I believe the X Compact is the "official" compact model in the current line of Sony mobiles.
If we take a look at the compact models and their release dates:
Z1c ---------- Jan 2014 release
Z3c ---------- Sep 2014 (8 months after Z1c release)
Z5c ---------- Oct 2015 (1 year and 1 month after Z3c release)
Xc ---------- Sep 2016 (11 months after Z5c release)
So based on the history of compact model release dates and Sony wanting to limit the number of models released in general. I would say the next compact model should be released 10 months from now (average) in July 2017. Sony has never had two compact models released at the same time. I would be surprised if they release XZ Compact

Every day i see a lot of people on sony pages posting this statement " I have sony xperia (?) from two, three years and still excellent and never lags".
Phone is good no doubt but Sony phones are exorbitantly priced. This has sd650 which is a midrange processor SOC. With similar specs barring camera, Xiaomi Redmi note 3 costs half its price.
Oh my God, the performance of this phone is amazing, the camera, even the 720p display, this is absolutely the best compact smartphone ever, but i am still expecting a flagship compact from sony, xz but compacted.
longer lasting with sony? i dont think so. all the phones are pretty much the same. I have had the worst experience with z3 compact, worst period. I used it like for phone calls, sms and whatsapp only with very low brightness and usage. Simply bought it for the design. The thing never lasted for 1 1/2 years. First the memory card spring got defective and theres no way to fix it. The Battery then later bloated and peeled off the back and front panels and the built was with a lame glue. The moment the front panel peeled off, say goodbye to proximity sensor. Not to mention the dual front speakers doesnt work when someone calls in ( only the bottom one rings with very low volume levels ) the word useless had a new definition with Z3 compact. Not to mention the price. I am happily settled down with a P9 lite for half the price and decent quality.
Better camera? The fact you can literally fry eggs on z5c just by watching videos on youtube? You will also get the latest updates aswell and z5c has 1gb less of ram. Z5c is very poor in therms of camera unless you know how to handle manual mode ( and most of the users do not have the time to play with the manual mode settings).
Bezels are use full , I found very good solution on holding the phone vertically with one hand while the shutter button on the top right , I hold the phone with left thumb on the bottom left bezel two fingers behind the phone under lens ( solved many of my snaps and other shots were fingers covering part of the lens ) and the others under the phone along the side. holding even with one hand is steady more controlled while freeing the other hand for setting .left handed could use on screen shatter .
Anonymous, 01 Oct 2016axon 7 mini , huawei honor 8 32gb or sony xperia X compact i need some useful opinion thx alotHahaha..is this even a question? Of course X Compact. Cheap with high specs doesnt mean its gonna be good. You pay higher to Sony for long lasting quality devices. Cheap means faster degrading over time.
sozz, 22 Sep 20162 years later and still nothing beats the Z3c. Best phone I ever had, until I smashed it.That's the problem - you smashed it. Z3c & z5c have glass backs making them more fragile, what is the point of that? X compact has plastic back so should be stronger, as is xperia sp.
