[deleted post]i think sony and other japanese manufacturers learned their lesson. they used to put everything on R&D, always go for the leading edge, and made a wonderful high quality products but no one could afford it. when you see those made in japan label you know the price going to be insanely high, then korea and china came offering a good products less reliable but a much cheaper price.so people when after it, it's affordable. then one by one japanese manufacturer loses their market and stop or sold each of their divisions
these thing happen with US and european manufacturers. back then in the 50s, japan was the today korea/china. unreliable products but way cheaper. and so many companies went bankrupt. this is just a cycle.

AnonD-481725, 18 Oct 2017Don't even compare, iPhone se is no match for this smartphone in anything, anything gets in yo... moreI hope some fine day Sony makes a 4 inch variant of this device called Xperia Micro, that would blow the socks off iPhone SE.
AnonD-708822, 18 Oct 2017this or iphone se?Don't even compare, iPhone se is no match for this smartphone in anything, anything gets in your mind from display, cameras, battery, speakers, performance..... The xz1 compact is way better, except the price of course, if you want to save money then the x compact from last year is still better than iPhone se for almost 300$ only.
Could be a perfect Z5 compact replacement if it had ANT+, but Sony want that runners go for Samsung devices !
Fast Charging hybrid, 09 Oct 2017Fast charging has nothing to do here with USB version because the phone makers use higher ampe... moreI understand how USB and device makers use them. But it doesn't say what amperage they use. So I'm still left wondering.
Antt, 14 Oct 2017Could anyone recommend this phone? Planning to switch from op 3T is it worth it?Don't ask, just buy, unless you want to wait the price to drop.
You know it is a compact smartphone ha?

traded in the Z5 for this (since Z5 on 7.1 has horrid battery life) and for me one hand control and typing and long battery life are my priority.
So far battery life is very good - updated the software when striaght out of the box.
easier to use with one hand than 5.2" Z5.
some issue with brightness sensor.
Got it for around equivalent of GBP370 or US468 after some credit card rebates. On top of that the shop offered around GBP125 trade in for the Z5. (this is all in Hong Kong, btw, and there is a free power bank, screen protector, clear case, extra 12 months warranty from Sony)
My point is anyone going for a smaller phone wants one because of its size. Even if you say a onePlus or xiaowhatever costs less with much better specs you are missing the point. if size isn't the matter, they would have gone for another model. unless there is another 4.6" phone there is not a competitor.
btw, i watch videos on my Z Ultra with 6.44"

Jon snow, 13 Oct 2017If they d put OLED screen they could make compact thinner. 1-2 mm may count a lot.Definitely right, they would need less battery capacity, but the Sonys JOLED project is not ready yet, it says that it is going to be ready in early 2018.

i actually prefer s7edge design to s8. g6 has better design than s8 but g6 just way too big, not comfortable at all to handle.if people want to go phablet. galaxy note is the only way to actually utilize all those big screen otherwise its just a phone with big screen nothing else, you just wasting battery life
for compact phone, 720p is the perfect resolution.still hd, and it consume less power compare with higher resolution. its compact phone, is it really make sense to put super high resolution screen on small size phone? by the end of the day it's just 4,5'' screen.you need to look very up close to the phone to see the pixelated. i wish it's oled though
and seriously stop comparing it with iphone se. its android and ios... not everyone want to use ios, probably one of the reason why people kept buying android phones even though android phone cost just as much as iphone. if iphone se could run anrdroid. sure throw it in comparison. but i think iphone se like 4''. it's just way to small.one hand operation is perfect but the screen just way too small.it's not comfortable to navigate those small screen, not to mention typing. again 4.5''-4-8'' just really a right size for compact phone
i know the big problem here is the price. but last time i checked the only compact phone with high performance on the market FOR ANDROID is only sony. so maybe if other brands stopping the screen size war and actually produce a high performance compact phones maybe we could get more competitive price. but until then you have no other options.its either buy this or don't
Spaceandtime, 12 Oct 2017Hi Sony. Would love to buy this phone but....
1. Cost - far too much. You can buy a S8 from ... moreYou are in a wrong thread kiddo....
Phablets are other sections.
And while you re at it, why would you buy S8? People are not happy with that phone, has more than half less sales than S7 did, and that tells a lot.There are a lot of, even much cheaper, and better phones at amazon than that. And You can get a XZ Premium for 550 now.
And...on subject, Oneplus doesnt even offer compact, best Samsung offers in compact is A3...which is seriously crap when compared, even for its low price.
Iphone SE is cheaper now but...cmmon, who wants that except apple fans....this is a much better device and thus more expensive. Iphone 8 costs 200 more, and it is not a better device.
