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 🙃

-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.
