It's an injustice to compact phone enthusiasts.
James, 25 Jul 2017Lol Sony doesn't use OLED display and never will because of how unreliable it is compared to I... moreMy 3 year old S4 mini has no issues with its OLED screen. Sony have just released a Bravia TV with OLED... There are tradeoffs in OLED vs LCD, but your opinion "Lol Sony doesn't use OLED display and never will because of how unreliable it is compared to IPS which last forever." may need reviewed.
I just worry that this will come with thicker bezels (thus lower screen to body ratio), lower battery capacity and screen resolution (expected and somewhat understandable), and also a less competent SoC compared to the non-compact version but will cost only $50 less. Then the manufacturer will complain that no one is buying compact phones anymore. But I would very much like to be proven wrong on the day this phone is made official.
2800 Mah is too small for a compact device, let's not forget the phone will be bulky and should have more battery life at least 3200 Mah would be adequate.
Ugh... just got my XA1 a few months ago... will be hard to not splurge on this one, but will probably do so if the camera comes with OIS.

No FM Radio? No thanks.
Another epic fail by Sony after the monster bezels on the X Compact, a mid-range phone with mid-range specs that Sony tried to sell for premium money.

Like Samsung and Oneplus, they have screen burn ins that's why Sony would charge you higher price for their flagship phones built with IPS which lasts longer than OLED displays.
