I don't know where to find any seller that still sells this anymore

Hi-res audio player with wifi, noise-cancelling, waterproof, great screen and sensibly sized. Had one for 2 years but broke beyond repair after 18 months. Time to upgrade and I'd happily stick with this phone but can't find any more. And, as you say, the new XZ Compact is anything but - and no longer waterproof. Shame.
I love this phone
Z3 Compact was my previous fav (though I owned Z5 Compact too)
But this is the best in the series (can't count XZ2 Compact as that's not really that small)
And it really is a pity Sony is givin' up on small pocket-fit flagship phones

From Latvia, 20 Jun 2019Don't buy this phone. Glass will brake by its own, warrany service will decline free repair. ... morei had been using xz1 compact for 20 month without screen protector but got transparent case,i had drop so many time but the screen condition still very good as new one :)
The worthy successor of the XZ1 Compact is apparently made by Sharp:

I'm so thankful to read this comment. Exactly what I was looking for. I'm having the same issues with the phone, the thing with the apps and locked screen and the GPS problems...And I've been using the phone for over 1 year now and its getting worse and worse.
That sucks, because I've also wanted this to be my long term device. Always had it with the case on and it still looks like new and the battery is a banger.
The camera sucks. I can't rely on this thing to take a decent photo. Video shots are quite fine tho.

Razvan, 28 Jun 2019There is only one downside: no wireless charging :(
Otherwise, the phone is amazing! Love it!I wouldn't fret over wireless charging...
It IS convenient, but it does put additional wear on the battery (battery is subjected to higher than normal/recommended temp during wireless charging)
Overall a decent phone with a couple of flaws.
The phone is smooth, with a somewhat decent camera with pretty subpar night shots. It unfortunately crushes the blacks during night shots. It has a decent slow-mo camera shot, but outside of that it isn't any useful.
I want to point out the biggest flaw of this phone.
GPS problems. If you go on the internet, you will see the most common complaint about this phone is the GPS.
It has the weakest GPS, often times dropping signal and has made me get lost in unfamiliar areas many times.
Stuartgd, 21 Jun 2019My xz1 compact is running Android 9 and is still the best small phone aboutthe best phone...but unlucky not much accesories for this phone like apple brand...ps4 controller also very hard to sync with this phone...japan should learn from china how to sync phone with controler and can use it to play mobile legend!

And already drop for a few time but glass still not broken. Compared to my previous z ultra just fall once already broke. I think the plastic body and wearing case make big different because sony phone is fragile but this one is different due to polycarbonate body

Glass will brake by its own, warrany service will decline free repair. You will have to pay extra 100eur to replace display! yes, display! because protective screen iz glued directly to the display.
@sony nxet time most fragile part glue to the main board, it will be win-win: no warrany services needed and income will raise miltiple times!
