Adore Pirin, 19 Oct 2018I got my XZ1 Compact 2 days ago. It's the best phone to my needs but... The color of my screen... more"yellowish" tint is definitely not an issue on my phone, I'd say it's actually vice versa.
Anyway, I think you can tackle the issue by raising blue in the white balance settings a bit, and green by half-a-bit. RGB -> 0 +1 +2
Peteraven, 16 Oct 2018People, how is this phone about these sharp corners?
On hand: do you get ustued to it after... moreCorners are not that big of a deal. I've been using this phone w/o case for 1 week by now, either I do not pay attention to those corners or just got used to them.
Anyway, getting a case very soon, because I know how unpleasant (finance and time wise) it could be when you drop it by accident and crack the screen.
I got my XZ1 Compact 2 days ago. It's the best phone to my needs but... The color of my screen are so warm and I have red-yellow tint in all pics. :( I have Z1 Compact from 2014 and compared to these colors of XZ1 Compact - it's real disaster to me because I'm photographer and I can't live with such red-yellow tint on the photos which I have to upload. I tried to fix this issue from Display settings, but white balance 0 0 0 is fixed on warmer base and nothing to do with my problem. Also try to change Color gamut setting but white is just a little yellow on this phone... I don't wanna return the phone, but how I could fix that issue? Please share some experience with that issue.
Question: how is the screen compared to the X Compact? Is it any better?
People, how is this phone about these sharp corners?
On hand: do you get ustued to it after some time?
On pocket (jeans,trousers ) - Do this sharp corners hurt you when you put the phone on your pocket jeans? Or you even notice?
Phone does sell anymore on my country, only option are shops online, so I'm asking for users experience. The corners seems sharp on pictures /videos. This Is my only concern about this phone, since i don't use 5" phones i have to consider this one. Thanks
DannyBoy, 06 Oct 2018is the typing just as bad as the rest of compact phones?Yes. All compact phone has a bit problem during typing due to small screen. But i think typing on xz1c is better than iphone se

sportsman, 27 Aug 2018Z3c does not have any physical button for the fingerprint. :))
Did you want to mention anothe... moreOops, sorry, Z5c :-D .
Got mixed up because I was debating which to get. Z3c won out for one reason: rooting without having to unlock the bootloader.
Next phone I get will probably be this XZ1 Compact, as it seems to be the last with a proper headphone jack. I prefer the shape over the newer ones, with rounded corners (yuck!).
Anonymous, 19 Sep 2018I hate the keyboard. I make so many typos with it.is the typing just as bad as the rest of compact phones?
Made through the weekend with a friday to saturday overnight charge, way into the 8th hour of sot.
Managed around 10 couple of weeks earlier.
Legite successor to zr.
FunkyFlo, 06 Aug 2018Just ordered this beast after long and a bit painful conparoson with xz2c. The price has had i... moreZR seemed like a great phone. Always wanted one back in 2013. Was on the HTC One M7 at the time but the ZR felt nicer in the hand and love the multi-LED notification lights .
The Xperia ZR was the only Xperia to be water-resistant and still have a removable battery and headphone jack. It was also quite compact for its time. Now we live in a time where everything just seems worse.
No headphone jack
I recently bought the XZ1 compact. I think it is a great value compact phone. But there is one aspect that troubles me a lot. The housing and screen of the phone strongly resonates at some (mid) frequencyÂ’s in music and speech. I am surprised how well I can feel the vibrations when I hold the phone in my hands. I also regularly have the listening experience that the sound is distorted by the resonating housing which adds an unpleasant vibration to the sound. Surprisingly none of the reviews I have seen mention this aspect. Is this normal for this phone or should I return this one and buy another one hoping that one does not have that resonating problem.
Had xperia xz 5.2 inch for 2 years, which served me perfectly, but i did damage the phone a lot as i am working on the building, so i bought xperia xz1 compact few days ago, what beautiful solid phone, couple days was strange for me because of the 4.6 inch screen, got used now, i love this phone, is fast smooth great camera, great great battery, headphones jack, what more u want. I could gone for xperia xz2 compact, but 5 inch phone i can't call compact phone , thick curved back not for my test, i like xperia z5 XZ xz1 design.Sony u should make compact phones similar to xperia xz xz1 series with fully screen, xperia xz1 compact fully screen 4.8 inch would be a perfect compact phone.
Can someone tell me what the available storage is after first activation of phone?
Anonymous, 17 Aug 2018Just got this phone this week. Great hardware, but Sony have decided that you mustn't put Apps... moreThey stopped doing this because only a part of the app was put on the SD card. If you want to install to the SDcard you have to set it as main storage.
