Exactly... Why Sony dropped FM radio?
After long long time they come up with a flagship in compact size....
But what actually is the reason to buy Sony now?
-They dropping feature by feature, so they strip it down that except that compact size (I cannot handle anything bigger than that), there is nothing which would attract me to buy it anymore.
- no FM
- Contacts app with no Group support
- No answering machine
- still lot's of bloatware
- Can go happily with iPhone SE now...
Look @ the price... its way too much overpriced. The screen could have been @ least 4.7". Camera lacks OIS thats a Shame, you take a blurred shot @ night for 36000Rs/ 600$/500£, not acceptable.The phone is supercompact but the price is super high. Ifbit was launched for 25000Rs/350£/400$ it would have been sensible. Sony needs to think a lot.
I had the same problem with a fluctuating 4g signal on Xperia X Compact. The 3g signal was good though.
I am getting huge signal strength fluctuation with this phone. It keeps going back and forward between full signal strength and no signal at all. Sometimes I have to wait 15-20 minutes to get mobile data at all where as I get full stable signal with the same Vodafone and O2 SIMs with other phones. This issue makes the phone unusable.
Anyone else is having this issue?
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2017How can Sony drop Radio? Most of flagship phones nowadays don't provided with FM Radio. Very bad
il take the upgraded specs over the radio. The X compact is rubbish compared to this. If only they gave it a better design..

I think they're might be pressure from google as well, or sim free phones should come with it.

I am all for free markets, but breaking up Verizon like what happened to Ma Bell back in the 70's would not break my heart. So tired of their monopoly over such a large segement of the cell phone market here in the US.
Another great phone with the FM radio cruelly ripped out for no good reason. I'll stick with the X Compact at less than half the price.

I understand that there is no CDMA network to fall back on if out of LTE coverage, but checking (googling) the LTE bands, 2, 4, 13 (which are also Verizon's) are supported.
Ghostwolf, 28 Sep 2017If Sony made a CDMA version, even if it was only unlocked, I would buy this phone in an o stan... moreYeah, it'd be great if Sony did like Motorola and included all radios in the US version. ):
If Sony made a CDMA version, even if it was only unlocked, I would buy this phone in an o stant. So sick of Verizon's lousy selection of monster screen phablets posing as phones. I want something pocketable that still has some horsepower when needed. This Sony design fits my requirements perfectly.
And no, I will not buy an iPhone.

Anonymous, 27 Sep 2017also bigger size screen. that's also contribute to power consumption xz1 compact is a pract... moreExactly!!! You hit the point. Great useless glass design and bezel less for nothing. Protected with ugly thick cases, but yea its important that the phone is less than 8 mm thick, coz with case you have 10mm. A phone is still a tool for communication and information. Unfortunately not for most of the people anymore. My Lady broke her s7 edge glass even with case, just waiting how long the s8+ will last. I'm definitely buying the xz1c its small and powerful and durable. For entertainment I have a tablet. And yes I have big hands but small pockets. Once I had a z3c, was stolen, but the xz1c is the next good Sony for me. cheers
