Excellent phone but with 3 major issues:
1. 32 GB instead of 64GB so unworthy of a 2017 flagship
2. No FM Radio support
3. No Wireless charding support like Samsung Galaxy flagships
If these were adressed this would be the perfect phone.
sirai9roko, 09 Sep 2017multiple sources list this phone as usb 3.1 type-CBut we cannot judge it is USB type c 3.1, since I had visited the Sony website, that only show it connection is USB type c, no include any version, but its charger is Qualcomm® Quick ChargeĀ 3.0, I think it just only quick charge function, but its connection version between gadgets is normal. That all my opinion, thank you.
Swim Swim, 09 Sep 2017Same story for the smaller EU countries too not officially available... Too bad yet another na... moreIt'll most likely be available here in the Philippines through online retailers but it won't come with official warranty from Sony, so if the phone has a defect it'll be a huge headache to get fixed. Super disappointing.
I have the X Compact, and there are only 3 irksome things about it - 1) is the mid range processor (especially when handling photos, it is slow) 2) the screen which although it's ok, 1080p would be a welcome upgrade. 3) is the on screen navigation buttons. This XZ1 only seems to upgrade the processor, which for me is not enough reason to upgrade from the X Compact, unfortunately! Why couldn't they do more with it? If it had a better screen and a thinner bezel at the bottom, and louder speakers, then I'd give them my money!
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2017Yeah, it's a stupid move by Sony. No wonder they're losing to Chinese brands and Apple. Apple ... moreThey should sell directly off their website worldwide, instead of relying on retailers for lower volume markets.

Too bad yet another nail in Sony's coffin. Yes premium is everywhere, but Sony should get a clue not everyone want a phone with gimmick 4k screen, they should offer other choices too.
Because here buying from "gsm" stores, asking to be scammed.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2017Yes, Sony should the xz1 compact in the Philippines.Yeah. It's really disappointing that they won't make it officially available here in the Philippines. They could have gotten great market share here for premium Compact phones here. Instead our choices for sub-5" phones are only the non-plus sized iPhones and other crappy Android phones.
100% . how someone can use frameless screen vertically for games and as camera bezeles are good and needed , maybee shorten them on the top and bottom to include the newer ratio screen I think 18:20 instead the current 9:16 .
PrashantV123, 01 Sep 2017Hey Sony, can't u sell this device in India. I am really looking forward to this small magic.I wish this phone launch in Vietnam too
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2017Apparently, Sony won't be releasing this phone to many Asian countries. Earlier this year, Sam... moreYeah, it's a stupid move by Sony. No wonder they're losing to Chinese brands and Apple. Apple pretty much cornered the small phones market. If only they released the X Compact and XZ1 Compact here in the Philippines (and other Asian Countries), they probably would be more popular.
XZ1 Compact won't be officially available in the Philippines. So disappointed in Sony, not everyone here wants phones bigger than their hands. Might as well just buy an iPhone 7s.
No. Had an Xperia z3 compact and that 720p screen is just not good enough nowadays even for the smaller display size the lack of sharpness is noticeable.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2017This is a very beautiful phone, if it is curve and short of bezel it must be the same like sam... morea bezel less (like the upcoming iphone) sony in compact form would be so awesome. dream phone. just the 4.6' screen and no bezels. wow.
i mailed sony
they said this phone does not have a dual sim version
