Better then the the other 2 phones that have been released . This year line up is kind of disappointing. Not much difference from last year in design . In fact last year design was better . Volume rockers have gone up finally but stupid camera button still remains in the bottom half 🙃
Xperia Fan, 31 Aug 2017Z5c vs XZ1c
-8MP Front Camera (sacrificing HDR)
-720p 960fps Main Camera vs... moreXz1c is way more powerful, the 19mp camera is better than the 23mp one, it has a much more efficient SoC and shouldn't have overheating issues.
Higher screen to body ratio should land in xz2 series according to rumors, and design is subjective.
Sony could've had a bestseller if this phone came with 64gb internal memory with half of the bezel size. Nokia and Blackberry didn't pay attention to what most of their customers wanted and instead kept offering what they thought was best. Hope Sony learns their lesson before it's too late.
Yay gonna update my Z5 Compact to this! :) The Only minus from me is that they did not give it a bigger battery.
Finally after so many years a real compact phone i am looking forward to it
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2017come on Sony there's nothing wrong of making Less brezzel phone step up sony!With front facing speakers it is impossible.
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?
