I bought this phone in 2017-9-21, I guess the first launch date in HK. Does anyone know most of the android apps have not been updated to support android 8.0 oreo? The problem I am having is whatever the touchscreen sensitivity, Line, Wechat and Whatsapp that will jump out to the main screen when I was typing for 2-3 seconds.
I replaced the new phone already but the problem still exists...
8knots, 22 Sep 2017Guys! Endurance rating has been posted: 108hrs!!!Totally my next phone, worth every bucks. Long time not see phone with endurance rating more than 100. But where's the review?
alot of people saying the xz1 compact will come with single sim only .. its right guys ? .. if it's right .. it's will be disappointed ...
I suggest to those who don't like it, just don't buy. I could buy this, because they aren't cosmetic on their changes, they really want to improve the quality of all the phone, then the beauty is the next step. They are focused on quality and professional features. They are made by professionals, for professionals. They aren't built to be fashion, but powerful, highly useful and durable. I'm a fan, and not by accident.

I think this phone very brilliant for what it offers for compact size. My only complaint is it should be at least 64gb storage rather 32gb storage and more colour options. Other than that are great.

Applications include aircraft, boats, automobiles, bath tubs and enclosures, swimming pools, hot tubs, septic tanks, water tanks, roofing, pipes, cladding, casts, surfboards, and external door skins.
Heck, that phone is as durable as my bathtub....give me that quality plastic over glass or metal any day!
It wont scratch, dent, break, peel off...
My X Perf already has scratches on the metal back.
Now I wish it was indeed this FG plastic used.
When paying flagship I expect flagship rate material, be it highest grade reinforced plastic alloy, highest grade glass, or highest grade metal alloy....
But seems to me high grade reinforced plastic is the best solution for premium quality afterall...

Hardware alone in XZ1 compact would cost only around e250. But don't forget you are paying for warranty, updates, no bloatware and some extra features, which almost no other brand offers, such as front stereo speakers, hw camera button, fingerprint scanner on side and original (professional looking) design.
Sony is like a white knight going against the sea of Chinese/Korean brands copying each other's design.
I have pre-ordered the phone with full warranty in my country for e600 including the free e200, headphones. Can't complain.
