Unless you don't have access to the Play store, you can add a FM radio app folks. I have a built in radio on one of my handsets, but i seldom use it. That's my choice of course. I'm interested in seeing Sony minimize bezels next year. Do you guys think they will?
Repost, 03 Sep 2017Z5c vs XZ1c XZ1c pros: -8MP Front Camera (sacrificing HDR) -720p 960fps Main Camera vs 12... moreSony Xperia X Compact is water resistent, I tested it, it was not certified in order to lower the production cost, certification is expensive. Even if a phone is certified, there are accidents and misuses which damage the phone; being certified the returns under warranty are higher and but the production cost higher too. So it is a fair deal to pay 2-3 hundred dollars less for the same build but not in warranty for water damage. X Compact has HDR for both cameras and the main one is 23M pixels. It is in the end the best deal.
No FM Radio Activated when the Snapdragon does have it on board? Very disappointing - will stick with Z5C for now.
all those complaining its shape and design or any other feature should know that even x compact users don't complain of any special issue
I bet haters still dont understand this beast is the the real deal in daily usage
price will fall down to 450 in 3 months max and price is at 600 just because of those 100$ headphones
smooth like a google pixel
camera results look better than ever (from any previous xperia)
if apple can charge 700$ for a 4.7 inch phone then every nerd should know that at 500$ this is obviously the most complete package for someone looking for compact phone
Worst thing about Sony devices is that once you unlock bootloader DRM keys are gone forever.
No need to do the Bend test because it is sturdy enough, just wait the drop test from professional side, see can the display broke or not.
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.
This is worse than prior version X Compact, it does not have radio, it is heavier and way more expensive. Besides, eight high speed processors will drain the battery much faster for the same work done with six.
The Compact series is great but Z5C is the last compact that was released in Vietnam. I'm so sad :((((
bassist, 03 Sep 2017The lack of FM radio has spoiled it for me.With fm or DAB it would be my ideal phone. No radi... morewow it's 2017 and there's internet man.The phone is already thick and no need for some extra thickness
Welcome to 2010, watch out not to drop the brick on your foot.
Huge bezels, low rez, ugly like bad dream...
The lack of FM radio has spoiled it for me.With fm or DAB it would be my ideal phone. No radio,no use.
I really wish that this gets released in India. It was very unfortunate that the Z5 Compact and the X Compact were never released.
Jack Addams, 02 Sep 2017On all sources is viewed as Single SIM only ... (i wish Dual SIM, but it's now not really) :-(Although their specifications website of XZ1 Compact says only "Single-SIM Slot . Nano size" , their main XZ1 Compact site still show Dual SIM Hybrid Slot , Nano size" . I don't know it's a mistake or unconfirmed features , etc. , but it still here (i don't if it will gone in the future) . Weird but hopefully simultaneously....

for 4.6inch screen on screen buttons make it feel like cheap phones. No for on screen buttons at least on small screen like this.
This looks like a clone of my z5 compact. Not enough improvement to replace it.
