AnonD-688052, 01 Sep 2017I have X compact and now I can rest for another year without worrying about xz1 compact! Desig... moreYeah I'm in the same boat, rumors say sony will be going 18:9 higher screen to body ratio. If they do that, keep the same height and chop another mm of the width I'll definitely buy it.
I used Z1C to XC Because of my obsession with small things.
I'll almost buy it, But why is not there a radio?
So basically an updated z1c/z3c/z5c with snapdragon 835 and better camera? I would have liked it if they basically kept the z5c more round edges and squeezed in a 5" 1080p screen in the small body.
heard somewhere it wont be realeased for middle east countries, am really upset now. wanted to buy it
I have X compact and now I can rest for another year without worrying about xz1 compact! Design is almost the same and although this new guys is a beast in cpu, it wont show a big change in overall performance because what are users gonna do with a small compact phone other than texting/web browsing/taking good pictures?!
lets see what sony does next year when it drops support for x compact
I don't mind the bazel of xz1 compact. This is superb phone with superb spec. This phone has everything I wish for, best processor, sd 835 ! 4 GB of RAM, compact size 4.6 inch, good display, great battery and greater battery management. Water proof. Enduring material for rear and gorilla Glass 5 for front panel. What else one can wish for?
Will definitely get one if have dual-SIM hybrid variant. Wish it to have 64GB for dual-SIM hybrid variant just like the old Xperia XZ.
Shame to Sony
Again came with uglyness ,,onscreen navigation keys ,small batteries,shame Sony shame.
Wow... nearly 4 years later and Sony still wont offer 4,6 inch, high-end chip phone with 1080p screen. No wonder they are going down...
Slowly but surely.
there will be expensive phone despite with only 4.6 inch and a 2600 mAh battery
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.
