This would be my last Sony phone I guess. XZ2 Compact is just plain ugly, no unique characteristic and design, utterly stupid 18:9 display and removal of 3.5 mm headphone jack. Disgusting move Sony!!!
Oh wait, I haven't bought this phone yet as it's still expensive for my wallet. But as time goes by, the price will drop even further. I'll patiently wait for it. In the meantime, Redmi 4x serves me well so far.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018I gotta agree, the XZ2 compact looks hideous, like a big fat hippo. Shrunk the bezels a little... morea real piece of shit just like the rest of the phones on the market. if people really want 5 inches screen with the same stupid design like korean/chinese phones. they don't need to buy sony fuckin compact lines phones... especially not in 600 price bracket. they could charged whatever they want for previous models because there are no other options, the only compact phones on the market just iphone se, for android phone, there's only sony compact line. the rest of the market only have 5 inches screen for their smallest size.now with this design changes and screen size and charge 600 euro? sony xa2 looks vastly better than xz2compact, at least from design alone. i'm very very disappointed with sony. if they only change xz2 design, i get it, they need to fight with other manufacturers, to get more market share, okay... xz2compact, they are the only one who produce this kind of phone, nobody else have this type of phone, why they ruin their own market. even nokia looks vastly better than xz2compact
I gotta agree, the XZ2 compact looks hideous, like a big fat hippo. Shrunk the bezels a little but increase thickness and height, slight increase in width... One handed use will be tougher with the 18:9 and bigger screen. And that fingerprint scanner placement is placed too far down for a smaller phone. I'd recommend anyone to grab the XZ1 compact when they drop the price after the launch and availability of xz2 compact.
i'm definitely going to buy this xz1c later after they lower their price. i'm disappointed with xz2c. who the hell call 5'' screen a fuckin compact
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2018In love with this phone, great battery life, good speed, superb sound quality. The only drawba... moreAnd what can you say about the evolution of Xperia compact phones so far?
I'm still on z3c waiting for something decent :-))
Yup i was waiting for xz2 compact but without headphone jack i will buy this one.
the new sony xz2 compact is coming out people so camera might improve on that bit no big deal xz1 compact is fine its nice i actually on a iphone se which is very good too but is looking to upgrade to sony xz1 compact due to being waterproof bigger battery and also more grippy.

N, 15 Feb 2018hi guys need some help i have an iphone se but is considering sony xperia xz1 compact but isnt... moreI wouldn't be too concerned about the plastic body as it feels more like metal than plastic. It's nothing like the cheap plastic feel of the previous generation X compact. It feels really good IMO. The battery life is great as you can see by the battery score compared to the SE that another comment already mentioned. It's one of the few phones to get over 100 hours on gsmarena's battery test.

this type of fiberglass reinforced plastic material that sony uses will NOT crack, shatter or scratch!!!!! i would buy it just based on this material alone! excellent!
my only wish is if sony used this fiberglass/plastic ALSO for the top and bottom of the phone. i accidentally dropped the phone on marble tile floor everything was fine except for the metallic part used to cap the phone at both ends (bottom and top)
N, 15 Feb 2018hi guys need some help i have an iphone se but is considering sony xperia xz1 compact but isnt... moreUnfortunately it is not metal body but it is using "Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic", it is strong, durable, lightweight, temperature insulator, signal booster.
Regarding to the battery you could at least take a look at the specifications page you will find the battery endurance, in this test the xz1 compact blew away all smartphones, it scored 108 hours vs 73 hours for the SE.
The display, cameras are much better, front facing stereo speakers, waterproof design, expandable storage Micro SD card support.... Conclusion you won't miss your SE.
AnonD-401057, 15 Feb 2018The camera is not that bad as most reviews point out. It is much better than other phone camer... moreit has electronic image stabilization. its quite good with no moving parts to break down
...., when is the new compact coming out with the 845?
