dont care about bezels but at keast it should have 64gb internal, 4gb ram is useless when it has 28gb internal
All Sony phones look identical these days with huge bezel top and bottom. use your imagination Sony at least make it look abit different. This compact could have had a 5" screen but kept virtually the same size if it wasnt for the door stop bezels.
Screen doesn't work underwater to change settings..! :(
That's what it is for..
Xperia Fan, 31 Aug 2017Z5c vs XZ1c XZ1c pros: -8MP Front Camera (sacrificing HDR) -720p 960fps Main Camera vs... moreWell some have tested the X Compact in the wather and it seems it actually is ip something. But with all the complaints Sony has gotten when people have constantly exposed their phones to wather and broke them, seems to have led to it. Meaning they just wont mention it can deal with wather, so people don't intentionaly take it to the extreme.
Z5c vs XZ1c
-8MP Front Camera (sacrificing HDR)
-720p 960fps Main Camera vs 120fps
-Bluetooth 5.0 vs 4.1
-Quick Charge v3.0 type C vs micro USB 3 w/ Quick Charge 2.0
*still thick with thick bezels and the same 2700mAh irremovable battery
*UGLY for a late 2017 phone
*Why is the flash waaay over there!? (look at the pictures provided by GSMArena)
-23MP Main Camera
-FM Radio with RDS
-5MP Front Camera has HDR
*looks better design-wise
*waaay cheaper now
p.s.: don't even bother looking at the X Compact - no IP certification of water resistance and is... ugh... just look.
Performance will be superb with 835 processor with 720p. It will be flashy.
Maybe next year , sony/nokia/htc/ will join bezel less bandwagon... nice phone but still....
come on Sony there's nothing wrong of making Less brezzel phone step up sony!
It looks quite good actually, finally something to upgrade from my z3c. Did extensive research and found no phone that is 4.6" while still packs a punch. Funny that a 4.6" today is called mini/compact and "normal" sized phones are big and awkard to hold in your hands or even carrying.
Sony is going strong with these line ups. I love this particular model.
Anonymous, 29 Aug 2017Guys lets just stop fighting, this phone needs to be thinner, it's too thick. Sony should make... moreOkay. but then again how would you fit a 2700 mAh battery in a 7.something or 8mm thickness? you're sacrificing battery life like that.
So it's just the XZ1 in a smaller body? Why didn't Sony do this for the X Compact, which strangely lacked an IP68 rating officially?
Why does it still not ship with a camera that has OIS? Why does it use the inferior camera from the XZs? Why is Sony willingly lagging behind its competitors?
John, 25 Aug 2017Dudes, really??? Same size like x compact, same bezels, same look like a BRICK??? Yep same design as the x compact.. was hoping die something more modern... Z3c was stunning z5c the same look.. then the x compact was bigger with low specs... Now we have good specs bu, Lu t same ugly design of the x.. Sony give is something to be proud off...
most people need smart phones with bigger battery , I am using z5c , I did not see anything wrong with it, I prefer it to last more longer and more efficient , the only con I have is the audio, is not comparable with my htc m8 and htc m9 in sound but the battery is great and better than my htc. it still have more features comparing to htc
Guys lets just stop fighting, this phone needs to be thinner, it's too thick. Sony should make it maybe a little small battery, maybe a little less powerful processor but it needs to be thinner, right now it's way too thick
Nice look O.o. But I still can't accepted Sony new design as thicker as my power bank,really unbelievable and how come Sony challenging Sony's fans of visual impact.
Surficial, 26 Aug 2017Yep, people say the bezels are huge and make it unwieldy, despite the fact this is most likely... moreHm. but then again the Sony [insert sequence of letters here] Compact will lose it's COMPACT title. the whole point of it is to remain SMALL SCREEN.
Ahmed, 27 Aug 2017it is thicker than my wallet loooooooooooooooooool even it is thicker than my laptop loooooooo... moreSo you bash the phone evwn when it isn't even out yet? By the way USE COMMON SENSE. It will be slightly thicker because IT HAS FLAGSHIP specs in a small size and reasonable size battery in it. If you want smaller display all the components still need to be fitted inside the phone. So the only way that can be done is by adding space in thickness. You can actuallt use these with 1 hand unlike the over 5" slabs that look helluva stupid while being talked into.
Ahmed, 27 Aug 2017it is thicker than my wallet loooooooooooooooooool even it is thicker than my laptop loooooooo... moreyou havin a stroke mate? a nice, smaller, thicker phone feels far better in the hand than some ridiculously huge phone which, mind you, has the same battery capacity driving a bigger, higher resolution screen (which you can't see anyway) because MUH THIN PHONE meme.
function over form, except this phone will have both
