Design is near identical to the X compact, very lazy. its a little smaller. They cut some corners.. No FM radio, same old 2.0 Type-C 1.0. Hopefully the battery life + camera make it a decent device.
Hey Sony, can't u sell this device in India. I am really looking forward to this small magic.
835 snapdragon supports retinal scan hope its available in the monile.

Typical Sony, their mobile division has often displayed this kind of arrogance with regards pricing, it's held them back.
At £399 this becomes hard to argue with. At £499 though come review time you'll see a lot of sites and tech journalist recommending the like of the Oneplus 5, Nokia 8, even the G6 which can be had for similar numbers over this.
Or they'll suggest saving a good £100 and looking at perhaps the Moto X4 and such.

If sony had to pay google a fee to enable radio support, you can understand why they, and everyone else would drop it.

I'll almost buy it, But why is not there a radio?
So basically an updated z1c/z3c/z5c with snapdragon 835 and better camera? I would have liked it if they basically kept the z5c more round edges and squeezed in a 5" 1080p screen in the small body.
heard somewhere it wont be realeased for middle east countries, am really upset now. wanted to buy it
I have X compact and now I can rest for another year without worrying about xz1 compact! Design is almost the same and although this new guys is a beast in cpu, it wont show a big change in overall performance because what are users gonna do with a small compact phone other than texting/web browsing/taking good pictures?!
lets see what sony does next year when it drops support for x compact
I don't mind the bazel of xz1 compact. This is superb phone with superb spec. This phone has everything I wish for, best processor, sd 835 ! 4 GB of RAM, compact size 4.6 inch, good display, great battery and greater battery management. Water proof. Enduring material for rear and gorilla Glass 5 for front panel. What else one can wish for?
Will definitely get one if have dual-SIM hybrid variant. Wish it to have 64GB for dual-SIM hybrid variant just like the old Xperia XZ.
Shame to Sony
Again came with uglyness ,,onscreen navigation keys ,small batteries,shame Sony shame.
Wow... nearly 4 years later and Sony still wont offer 4,6 inch, high-end chip phone with 1080p screen. No wonder they are going down...
Slowly but surely.
