The most unreasonable shortcoming is the lack of full hd resolution. Bigger resolution = lower autonomy and less perfomance. XZ1 has full hd, but it endurance rating 82h versus 108h in compact.
Santiagorrr, 26 Sep 2017make everyone a chorus gsmarena already does the review for this phone model I want to see the... moreread the paragraph at the end of page 5 of the review.
The XZ1 Compact is the fastest, the smoothest, no heating, no hanging up, it's superiorly amazing!!
where do you get a dual sim XZ1 compact?
some outdated old spec on a Sony homepage said Dual, but that was updated. all I can find now are regular 1 sim compact XZ1
Nice phone had it in my hand in Carephone Warehouse. But not for 500 quid!
Especially with 32 GB. Should have 64 GB option. I can get iPhone8 from US for 520.
lksilesian, 26 Sep 2017@people bashing square body - at least it is something different, not like all other smartphon... morewoah...!! you took the words right out of my mouth bro.
i cant understand how people can't see what is actually unique, and what actually looks the same.
total idiosy lol.
@people bashing square body - at least it is something different, not like all other smartphones that follow the same idiotic design. I think this design is great, comfortable and well looking and I hope sony sicks to it for a long, long time.
Place 20 smartphones on the table, the same colour, hide manufacturer logos - which phones you can identify - probably none, even iPhone look now identical to the rest.
boxy rectangular body form always a deal-breaker for me to buy a sony phone from Xperia Z3 compact. it`s not comfortable when I put the phone in my pocket. so, no for this too.
I have been using sony phones for a quit a while now..I used to have xperia sl, z1, z1 compact, z3 compact and currently z5. i must say its compact series of phones are the best.
make everyone a chorus gsmarena already does the review for this phone model I want to see the face of many when this demon has a better performance at all up his competition
Still waiting for this to upgrade from my Z1 compact.. Still no signs from Sony to release this in India.. Hopefully they will release this phone soon in India. :(
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2017U.S. for sureI think the situation should be clarified thus: "The US version does not ship with the fingerprint sensor activated. Flashing to the firmware of a different region (say, the UK) will alleviate this."
I really like my X Compact, but... Holy moly, that battery life might make me a believer in this one!
That battery is life! 108hrs endurance rating for the most comfortable screen sized phone, SONY just take my working great z3 and kindly replace it with this BEAST!!
