IAM dream is to see a phone with Snapdragon flagship processor 835 with
-4.7"inch super amoled display
720p screen resolution
LPDDR4X 8GB RAM
Stock android O (8.0)
Why FM radio? You've got a shitload on apps. I'm using everyday radio to wake up. It's fine to me.
FM Radio is a deal breaker for me. I don't want to waste my data allowance on streaming music, which also drains the battery much quicker. :-(

It must have FM definitely. If no FM then there is no reason for someone to buy it. It should also have dust and water protection like compact Z5.
Please kill the USB type C connector and return to micro USB.
-it looks very ugly(very thick)
-poor screen to body ratio(it must be greater than 75%)
-camera, more megapixels doesn't always mean it's good, needs better auto mode
-we don't need 55 led flashes, quality speakers, poor or average will be just fine
-needs bigger battery
Sony Xperia Compacts is what I have been waiting for!!!! Come at me fast!!!
Finally true pocket-size beast from Sony, again.
I'm still using Z3 Compact and was patiently waiting for reincarnation, since the last Sony's compact (X) was disappointing mid-ranger.
We still do not know final dimensions, but I hope it would be at least small as Z3c.
My ideal phone will be 4.6" display with minimal or no bezels, but being in with trends is not Sony's thing. Since I appreciate Sony for being only manufacturer with performing mini smartphones I will buy this one and wait for Sony to catch no-bezels train, maybe in 2020.

Id rather a clean 10 or 12MP image to a sketchy 23MP thing with huge file size any day of the week.
Great minds think alike....ftw...Batt and Camera is the only most important thing...plus chipset also...

Sony need to create something like XiaoMi brand....
cheap with high RAM, high storage, high battery...
no need too high processor....
no need too good display....
some people just need long battery with good camera........
storage wise just use backup!
please reduce price to be competitive, thanksssssss
4.6inch is what sony is good at, which xiaomi doesnt have !
we need good camera, good battery phone, ... no need very good display....waste of $........u can reduce cost to attract more peopl to SONY
mariahx, 06 Jul 2017When, when, when?????will be official on August 31, with its bigger brother, XZ1.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2017I just worry that this will come with thicker bezels (thus lower screen to body ratio), lower ... morethe XZ1 Compact has been benchmarked at Geekbench and yes it has Snapdragon 835 like XZ1 and XZ Premium, and also 4GB of RAM like them.

I'm really excited to see this rumoured release. Only recently read claims that Sony were ditching high end compact devices so, as a loyal xperia compact purchaser, was left feeling disowned by Sony.
However, I don't see the point of including a full hd screen. With a screen this size (4.6) the difference in appearance between 720 and 1080 would be negligible. Also, the higher demanding screen resolution would have a negative effect on the usually excellent battery performance which is one of the compact ranges main selling points (for me at least).
