why they end with Radio?? that was one of the points that make me have the xperia z1 compact and now xperia x compact.
I'm so torn on whether to get this or not. I still have a Z1 Compact so this is obviously a nice upgrade but.. No 64 gb internal, no RAW support, no dual camera, not to mention camera quality probably won't be THAT great.. I kind of want to either wait for next year or just suck it up and upgrade to a 5+ inches phone. I just love the size of my Z1 Compact. It's upsetting there's literally not competition in the sub 5 inch android market. This phone is decent but it's not late-2017 decent.
Surficial, 09 Sep 2017They should sell directly off their website worldwide, instead of relying on retailers for low... moreWell it turned out better than expected, at very least Sony has some offical retailer around here, where the phone can be pre-ordered.
However the price is very step, 750 euro for XZ1, or 650 euro for XZ1 compact

This phone is almost perfect. I have big hands but I hate big phones, around 65mm width is perfect to use a phone with one hand. I'm not quite in need of an upgrade yet though, so I'll be happy to wait until next year when Sony will likely put new ARM cores in their phones. Give me a slight camera upgrade too and I couldn't ask for more.

Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017The problem isn't the specs, but the price they want for it with those specs: ~550-600 USD. No... moreThere's only a few pixels difference (and 0.1 inch diagonal) between this and an iPhone 8. And it will almost certainly have rather better battery life and a standard connector. It's also Â€200 cheaper. Is the Apple software and better if rarely used video modes worth Â€200? Then the Sony seems about the right price to me.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2017720p=it's ok. 2700 mAh=ok for this size phone 32 gb=pretty good for this size The only prob... moreThey had to fit a 2700mAh battery somehow. The only way to do that is to make the device thicker. If you want a thinner device, they would have to sacrifice the battery capacity significantly.
To be completely fair, this compact version has a higher screen-to-body ratio (meaning, relatively less bezels) than the standard version but I bet if Sony used the same style as in their XA- series, a 4.7" screen could fit in these same dimensions. Maybe on next year's successor? I hope they keep the 16:9 aspect ratio on XZ2 compact though. And I hope they ditch the standard version of their flagship and make the compact available alongside premium on ALL MARKETS. (XZ1 compact will not be officially released in my region.)
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2017I don't agree with both of you. The specs you mention are all not importantAgreed
