jaya andrias, 11 Jul 2017yes its true, z1 compact more durable, about 3 meters drop accidentaly this phone just bending... moreAlso less surface area for a virtually thicker ratio of the front panel glass. Assuming that all glass panels for these phones are cut from the same sheet, then the thickness ratio thins out the bigger the display. My Z3 compact for example has fallen a few times (1 fall was kinda scary) and the screen still looks good as new! So yes, I'm a huge fan of compact devices for this reason!
Compact phones like these are less heard after a few months till I almost forgot XPERIA XZ got a compact version lol
Got the july security patch now.
Carrying on patches by mid month without fail for unlocked uk version.

radu d., 02 Jul 2017didn`t get the 7.1.1 update yet in romania. any idea when? what does it bring? I'm from Romania and i received the 7.1.1 update. Be advised, my X Compact came with UK charger.
radu d., 02 Jul 2017didn`t get the 7.1.1 update yet in romania. any idea when? what does it bring? The update brings a lot of bug fixes in my opinion, not much UI changes. The messaging app was becoming very laggy in 7.0 but now its so much better even though I restored all my messages after update
Samsung is not worth paying - not for the value which you're paying; quality is not as superior as Sony Xperia series. Ever used Samsung prior to Sony's development on smartphones. But never like Samsung any more once I had purchased and used Sony Xperia ZXs and Premium phones.

Minor changes to notifications and quick settings.
Also most likely june security patch.

Martin, 19 Jun 2017I have this phone for about 3 months now, and I'm kinda disappointed. Battery life is not that... moreGo and buy samsung which is the super phone for you, never buy something else.
None of your claims are true: the batery life is long, about 48 hours using ocasionally web browsing. The image is with high contrast, sharp, vivid colors, natural. But for some people it will never be anything else better than iPhone and Samsung Galaxy so please never buy anything else ghus live your life happy. The same happens with BMW M and Mercedes AMG, it does not matter other cars for some.
aminos, 01 Jul 2017what about his ringtone volume, it aren't very loud ? Someone can confirm it ?No loud but sufficient, well oriented the speakers towards user, stereo. No problem if kept just a little below the maximum, still clear sound.

Anonymous, 25 Jun 2017Keep getting a squelch/chirp during calls. Been to carrier (AT&T) and sim card was replac... moreme sometimes in no signal places but ehrn i change from lte to gsm it will work perfect there.
i have this problem only in that place and i know its because of my simcard
Surficial, 26 Jun 2017Try it without audio enhancements, might help the issue.
Settings - sound - audio settings.Thanks for response. All Audio Setting have been turned off for some time. Previously tried
turning each setting on then off. That too made no difference.
Did not mention in original post, but I hear the squelch/chirp at my end but the person I'm speaking to does not hear it.

That did not help. Contacted Sony Support via email several times. Sony only responds to check their Trouble Shooting Guide. The TSG suggests running in safe mode, verifying if latest updates are installed or resetting back to original factory mode. I have done all of these items several times. I have asked Sony several times if there is a local Sony cell phone repair facility in my state. Each time, they do not answer the question and reply saying I can ship the phone back to them at an overseas address. I've explained several times that this is my only phone and I cannot ship it back and wait several weeks for them to review. Shipping it back is their only response. Very frustrated and disappointed with Sony support. If you google search the Sony return shipping address ( SBE Ltd Freepost NAT19593 Ashford Kent TN23 7BR) you get a list of angry, frustrated responses to Sony. Anyone else getting a squelch/chirp during calls?
I have this phone for about 3 months now, and I'm kinda disappointed. Battery life is not that great, I only get about 5hours sot, without even using mobile data. The phone is chunky when using with a case, speakers are great but to quite, you can clearly see a pixelated icons when changing to google pixel icon pack with rounded icons. And I hate gallery app, because you have to wait for 5 seconds to load photo and if you zoom in you have to wait for another 5 seconds to load (image enhancement is off). This phone is good but not that great. Now I'm giving this phone for my mum, and first time switching to the ios. I'll give iphone se a try, I think it will be more polished than this phone. It would be a great phone if the price would be lower, for a 250euros it could be a killer. That's my opinion. Have a good day guys
Skullmaster, 17 Jun 2017Hello, i just wanna ask do you use power button or touch gesture to open ur phone? If you use... morenope, still working perfect in everything, the only draw back is the color option which i wanted black but only found white here
talespin, 16 Feb 2017Tragedy is only Sony makes high end compact phones, I had Z3 Compact, bought for USD 490 on 13... moreIm still using my z1 compact, its been 4 years, still good and snappy, downside is just the internal storage which is 16gb, i used sd card but not all apps allow to be transferred to sd card,
When z3c came out, i didnt upgrade my z1c coz i think its not much different between em, i think I made a good choice, from ur comment, maybe z1c has better durability than z3c.
