Anonymous, 07 Oct 2017omg this phone is too ugly. outdated design and ancient ui. and plastic frameMan there are people that restore 50's, 60's is ancient design too. Hey its metal alloy and heavy chassis. So if you rather speak on a phablet / tablet. Is your choice. Btw companies should have at least one compact model below 5". And not produce year after year 5" and 5"+ rubish. I don't own a xz1 compact. But let the price drop and I'm thinking on one.
deadsupra, 08 Oct 2017Is the charging port really USB 2.0 Type C??? I don't mind coming from a Pixel with more resol... moreFast charging has nothing to do here with USB version because the phone makers use higher amperage over old USB version. I have Sony Xperia X Compact similar with XZ1 and the USB port is 2.0 with C connector, so it does not support video neither fast data transfer, however the power supply provided is above USB 2.0 amperage at 3A and the USB cable provided has the number of wires like 2.0 but thicker like for 3.0 so it charges fast the phone and that is why they ask not to use other cable than the one they provided. So they use a messed up implementation, not respecting any standard and questionable why so many phone producers put USB-C port with data capabilities of 2.0 and special, thicker 2.0 cable in the box.
Is the charging port really USB 2.0 Type C??? I don't mind coming from a Pixel with more resolution. But slower charging is a deal-breaker for me. This is a shame because a smaller screen and better chip would have meant even longer battery life :\
Love the design of the compact phones.. it is very durable.. I currently have z5c and for more than 10 accidentally drops, it is still perfectly fine. I believe that this xz1c will be the most compact, powerful and durable phone available right now. Can't wait to upgrade on this.
I.Love.Sony, 06 Oct 2017im talking about sony dude, not apple. the ugliest android phone in the worldSaying that 2700mAh battery is small on the XZ1 Compact but then doesn't want to bring iPhone 8 with 1821mAh (or Galaxy A3 with 2350mAh) into the comparison table is just the stupidest way of "trying to win a losing argument".

High price, big bezels, low screen T.b.r, f/2.0, FM. r and... No Sony this situation is intolerable! Where is you less bezels phones!? What's happened to Xperia Zeus!?
To Sony! Open your eyes man! Only look at Aquos S3

I.Love.Sony, 05 Oct 2017LOL. sony's battery capacity is too small. and qnovo is just a gimmick, unproven techAre you joking? The XZ1 Compact has one of the largest batteries for it's size, with possibly the best battery life.
It's 587mAh of battery life for every inch of screen. 2700mAh battery with a 4.6' display.

iPhone 8: 387mAh/i.
Google Pixel: 554mAh/i
Nokia 8: 583mAh/i
LG V30: 550mAh/i

These people should stop writting reviews because they look more like paid reviews by some tech companies or the people writting them are completely ignorant
