If Sony made a CDMA version, even if it was only unlocked, I would buy this phone in an o stant. So sick of Verizon's lousy selection of monster screen phablets posing as phones. I want something pocketable that still has some horsepower when needed. This Sony design fits my requirements perfectly.
And no, I will not buy an iPhone.

Great useless glass design and bezel less for nothing. Protected with ugly thick cases, but yea its important that the phone is less than 8 mm thick, coz with case you have 10mm. A phone is still a tool for communication and information. Unfortunately not for most of the people anymore. My Lady broke her s7 edge glass even with case, just waiting how long the s8+ will last. I'm definitely buying the xz1c its small and powerful and durable. For entertainment I have a tablet. And yes I have big hands but small pockets. Once I had a z3c, was stolen, but the xz1c is the next good Sony for me. cheers

xz1 compact is a practical phone. people bitching about screen size, low resolution, bezel. this is still an HD resolution in 4.5'' screen and i like bezel on my smartphone because i'm still handling that phone with my hand,i need a solid firm grip. i also like a little assurance if i drop my phone, it still survive.i don't mind dent in the chasis but bezel less design, i don't know it might survive i just don't have the courage to drop it just to test it,sure people would argue just put a case on it.so you preaching about beautiful design and yet you put your beautiful phone on an ugly case, what's the point having beautiful design,this is not a paper weight. and i still have laptop and tv. if i want to consume media entertainment i'm using that device,not my phone. 4k in 6'' screen if that's your thing, go ahead but not everyone like watching video in 6'' screen. you could put 8k resolution on that still it's a 6'' screen unless you want to to carry 15'' screen smartphone. oo wait that's called laptop

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.

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some outdated old spec on a Sony homepage said Dual, but that was updated.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.

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.
