i hope sony will always keep the bezels, that's one of main reasons why i buy sony phones, looks so much better. Like i can't be only one to like that.

1st off, Thank you #sony for giving us a small flagship phone. The volume rocker is well placed (thanks for listening). The top and bottom bezels should be trimmed down, use the z5 compact's speaker design and most of us don't mind a thicker phone for having a big battery. Maybe the next compact battery will be 3000mah? :) We want a smaller footprint on the next compact. I'm amazed this has 4GB of RAM but ROM is just 32GB w/c will leave us to about 15-20GB left of internal storage. PEACE \m/,

The best specs compact phone for the price
The worst looking phone on the market
since I search the sony website, its screen is using the corning gorilla glass 5 instead of Scratch-resistant glass

Sony listen to customer demands, the louder audio, the temperature is well control with triple graphite, and the Predictive Capture is awesome and usefull.

The last mini flagship phone. Sony. Even tough I like big screens, they are hard to hold and use with one hand and being curved is even more harder to use .
Its official this phone will not be launched in Asia and south East shit with it such a waste.
This could be my next phone. My last Sony phone is the Xperia Mini Pro; still functional and is my backup (currently using a Blu Life Pure Mini) phone on a prepaid.
Thank you Sony for not alienating some of us who prefer something below 5.0 and with 1gb+ :)
I bet if the side bezels were as minimal as in the XA- models, a 16:9 aspect ratio 4.7" diagonal would fit in these dimensions. I don't mind that Sony didn't jump on the dual cam bandwagon with this one but I just hope the image quality is excellent because I remember this website doing a blind shootout among 3 flagship phones with single primary camera and the XZ premium wasn't up to par with the 2 others.
Best compact Android phone of the year with every top notch spec on a 4.6" phone
Xperia UI is more efficiency
SD835 is more efficency
720p display is more efficency.
Qnovo charging tech is more efficency.
So im waiting on the endurance test for this phone and the xz1, but are they anytime soon cause knowing how long their battery last is kind of important for them to actually be worth getting.
Surficial, 04 Sep 2017This has the latest 10nm chip versus the sd650's 28nm. Xz1c will be more efficient.I have read reports about Intel's endevors to reduce consumption power making the chips smaller below 28nm, got no definite results. The research shows that when you get at very low size, close to the limits, the electrical power consumption actually increases because the electricity does not pass easily through conductors; like a thicker wire passes more electricity than a thin wire which can get hot. Because Intel is one the most avanced semiconductor industry and it got stumbled in performance increase with size decrease, we have to be aware about a physical limitation which we a getting close to and not expect much improvement from the 10nm technology.
