About battery life 10% after 18 hours from disconnected from charger with 8.5 hours on screen
For me very impressive
I still didnt get the nougat update for my Xperia X compact .. Can anybody help me please?
I bought this last month. Since I own an A7 and Note 5, I'm still getting used to typing on this phone. And the camera isn't really that great. But the automatic capture is useful, and the size is just right for my pocket. Also the battery is surprisingly adequate. I often play games on this over 24 hours before recharge.
i've had my x compact for a month now and couldn't be happier
after using my sony xperia u for 4 years
my sony ericsson t280i for 5 years
my sony ericsson t610 for 3 years
sony was my first phone and i have stuck with sony since.
buy this device if you want the best compact phone in the world
it might be pricy but in terms of durability, it gives you the best bang for the buck.

Might be some automatic optimisation stuff going on first couple weeks.
I would recommend updating to the latest security patches anyway.

This might help with calls.
I've been using Android since 2010, and because I've I only choose flagship phones and chose them wisely after research I've got amazing phones, using only 3 phones in 7 years.
I had an LG G4 before this, but the phone was I've heating badly and I was afraid of the bootloop issue so I decided to cut the crap and switch to something else, and this phone caught my eye with it's size and design.
I've been using it for a month now and it is an amazing phone. Screen size is perfect, with phenomenal battery life, it gets me through a day with no problem and I'm a heaving phone use wifi, lte downloads, gps and at least an hour of gaming plus an hour of emails. The audio quality is suberb honestly, this would make a perfect music player when I decide to buy another phone later on.
The screen size is a bit tricky when typing but it's something you can get used to after a couple of weeks especially that most phones now and 5 inch and above.
My only issue with this phone is the call quality, Sony has a complicated noise reduction technology that is locked and you can't change it, and puts down the volume of speech so the other person cannot hear you good at all times, I had the phone replaced the first week as j thought it was a problem with the phone, but the replaced one had the same issue, to make it clear, the other person on the call will never figure out of you are speaking to them from the bathroom or a car or from office, they cannot hear anything except your voice, and the louder the noise around you the more it cancels the noise including your voice. It's not a huge issue but k wish Sony enables us to switch this option off like other manufacturers or like their previous xperia phones. Other than this the phone is snappy, quick very responsive. You have to put this phone in your pocket to appreciate the size.
IN FLA, 24 May 2017The back being easily scratched and a fingerprint magnet keeps me from buying.Just get a good looking skin dude, I got a black carbon fiber one from skinomi.
I dont know is it watetproof or not? But i often use this phone in water, just for test or to take some picture in water. If you want, i have its video, i'd recorded it. Sorry for my bad english :)
LF, 14 May 2017Are you talking about Samsung A3? I saw it on Amazon.yes, 2017 or 2016 ?
you have no problem with screen siza iphone 6s 4.7". why not try the excellent c compact 4.6" screen size , cheaper very good over all, not wormong up as the new flageship compact
xz1 ( snapdragon 835) around the corner just annonced . I used both the z5 very bad ( from king battery life of z3 to the worst in its category ) and the z5 compact two differnet worlds apart ( +50% battery life) than to the x compact which is better than z5 compact , I am happier with my x compact and waitnig for newly annonced xz1 compact ( the best compact in the world )

Why did they have to make the bottom bezel so unnecessarily big. A bottom bezel which is bigger than the top one is probably the ugliest and least comfortable (because you hold your phone at the bottom-right or -left) design decision a phone manufacturer could make.
KB, 16 May 2017Why isnt this water proof/resistant It is, just not certified as it would be too much hastle for the company.
smoth, 13 May 2017Its not available in India i am looking for it every 10 days. They have release A4 and A6 but not A3Are you talking about Samsung A3? I saw it on Amazon.

My pick would be the Iphone but Battery life and IOS sucks. The XA1 is good but has a Mediatek SoC and also just good battery life. Moto, not for me cause its Chinese crap(no offense), but its good for most reviewers out there.
