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

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.

Skullmaster, 06 Jun 2017Guyss, i want to know the battery life of x compact after upgrade to nougat. Is it good like ... moreBattery life in nougat is similar to marshmallow which is pretty good. I've only once flattened it in a day and that was when downloading loads of music at once and playing games.
What isn't good is bluetooth sync to car stereo. None of controls work on tidal. I've heard it's same too with spotify. I have a VW system in my seat leon. With marshmallow works fine so I've manually downgraded which is not easy. Otherwise I'd recommend nougat as fluent and stylish but I'm sticking with marshmallow.
AnonD-213493, 10 Jun 2017I still didnt get the nougat update for my Xperia X compact .. Can anybody help me please?Updates are region and carrier dependent.
What countries model is it, is it unlocked or a carrier model?
You can get nougat with a custom rom if you're confident enough to do so.
About battery life 10% after 18 hours from disconnected from charger with 8.5 hours on screen
For me very impressive

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.
