Anonymous, 14 Nov 2017Guys, when is this phone releasing in Saudi Arabia?I have the same question! I've been waiting for ages!
.. well not really "ages" but..
Not at all impressed with this.
- no FM radio
- no magnifier bubble when editing text
- stupidly priced
- bland design that doesn't look or feel very good
- camera still iffy (give us a better macro and focus instead of slo-mo capture)
The only two things Sony have actually improved hugely over previous Compact phones are:
+ battery life is fantastic
+ the position of the volume buttons is now spot on (should have been there years ago)

Extremely, i mean extremely, shitty camera (eu version). Feels like some crappy chinaphone (very bad one). In low light cant focus with any decent speed (old lg g3 would focus in any light). In skype cant focus on the person talking at all (focus on infinity instead of the person).
And coming from moto g 1st gen they really could put at least an hd screen with oled. it is not like it is a very cheap device.
Quirky question: does anybody notice a difference in thickness feel on the side with the power and camera button compared to the other side?
When I tested the X compact I noticed it was slightly fatter/thicker to the touch than the left side. I think I read a comment that it's because of the batter pack being there and the camera button electronics?
It drove me nuts :)
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2017sony whatever you do ....... do not give us 18:9 display (i know youre planning to). it feels ... moreyou're so right, 16:9 rules, maybe the bezels on top & bottom can be slightly trimmed, so let's just hope that the news of Sony switching to 18:9 screens is just a rumor, like many other rumors that never came true..

XZ1 Compact if you want a smaller phone and better battery.
