Good news. The fingerprint scanner at first was not listed in the specs on Sony's website, now it is. So it appears the US version may get the option.
With this news I guess it's best to wait as you wouldn't get a warranty if you bought the international version. Also, the US model hopefully will have att bands 29, and 30 which are rolling out now.
I actually bought the z5 compact. Loved the phone. It gets warm which I can deal with, but it suffers from random lockups and reboots and there is no solution to this problem so I had to send it back.
Ali Bashir, 10 Sep 2016Experience?? About sony?? Through that m4 aqua?? Come on, did you even knew what I meant when ... moreWhy do you even ask if I know about old Sony-phones? And no, as long as their design-style is from a brick, I won't bother myself and buy one of them. Why are you trying to make people into buying these if it's clear that it's a no-no? Or well, the situation in which I would have to decide between Sony vs. Apple, it would be clearly Sony in that case... But that's too extreme example of a situation to happen. :-) But as I've said, I almost bought the Z2 instead of the HTC, but didn't as people started to post about gaps near the screen and rear camera. I was ready to cover the phone's looks with a case.

I could try one at the local phone store, but I would never blow away my own money into one of these. Simply I believe these aren't worth the high price, which also goes for HTC as well. High praises around the web, but personal experience with both has been nothing like people say. :)

I've already mentioned several times, I've owned a Galaxy S4 and while that was a decent phone with a custom rom (CM), it was horrible in stock-condition and unusable. So conclusion: never Samsung again, same goes for Sony as my wife's M4 Aqua was a disaster quality- and software-wise (parts falling off, like the rear camera unit; no adoptable storage-feature with Android Marshmallow-update) and I heavily dislike Sony's way to design a phone. Don't be a sheep and become a brand-fan, that makes no sense.

I own one apple phone, the iPhone se. I bought it because it had apples latest processor and such. That phone kicks ass in every aspect but the front camera. It's so fast and the battery is awesome. This phone is also more compact than sony's. On days I need a small phone the se is the best phone out there period.

Whatever Sony uses is...crap to begin with.

410 is too slow, even with the 2GB RAM. Processor is important, and you can also find that phones with the 410 such as Moto G struggle to play games even at 720p.
625 is a midrange processor. Once again, during heavy multitasking the difference between 625 and a 650 will be evident.
X Compact is supposed to be a flagship miniature phone. How can they put a slow processor like a S625 on that?
People wanted a S820 equipped miniature compact phone. Sony's Compact line were high end phones, with flagship grade internals. Putting a processor like 625 would be a shame.
