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.

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

2700 mAh=ok for this size phone

The only problem is the phone is too thick and ugly
Rajesh, 10 Sep 2017Any over heating issu?Sony reportedly equipped it with an internal heatpipe and dissipation plate, so there shouldn't be any overheating issues.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2017The problem isn't the specs, but the price they want for it with those specs: ~550-600 USD. No... moreThe price is right. This device has basically no competition. Nowadays you won't find other phone with high end specs in a body like XZ1 compact. I love that Sony is still making compact models because personally I hate big phones. XZ1 Compact is the perfect size for all around use. If you look 5 years back the phones like XZ1 Compact weren't even called compact. They were regular smartphones.
nice, I want to replace my z5 compact, but this device has no ANT+ for my HR bekt when I'm running so I have to go to Samsung 🤔

Non-premium materials, 720p, 2700mAh battery, AND still only have 32gb. Addressing some of these would make a better case for a premium priced phone.
People that complain about 32 gb not being enough storage - have you ever heard of Micro sd card or you are planning to install 20 1gb+ apps? Also 720p for 4.6 inch phone completely fine, less energy consumption and difference from 1080p shouldn't be that big for this display. Yea, losing radio sucks, but for 4.6 inch phone you need to cut some features to gain higher specs.
AnonD-670091, 10 Sep 2017Exactly, the biggest issue is the 32gb internal storage, thats simply not enough64 GB would be better. But 32 GB is fine given that it has expandable storage which is cheaper, unlike some phones like the iPhone and Pixel.
AnonD-670091, 10 Sep 2017Exactly, the biggest issue is the 32gb internal storage, thats simply not enoughthat is the reason it has "expandable storage".
This compact is really fit for my hand & 319ppi is enough also big help to sd835
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2017But it's a 4.6" phone. 1080p would be a waste of battery. iPhone still have a 750p display ... moreExactly, the biggest issue is the 32gb internal storage, thats simply not enough
