Getterpry, 25 Mar 2018How was the camera? I planning to buy this phone. ThanksOo the camera question. Well going by what every other owner says, the camera is good, but not going to blow your socks off. I haven't tried it, but with a tripod and manual camera work you can probably take some pretty good low light shots. I stuck a 128gb micro sd card into my xz1 Compact because I enjoy taking lots of pictures and videos. You do lose clarity when you say zoom in on some trees off into the distance. I took the picture for the whole environment, not just the tree haha.
I bought this phone for battery life, a size, and camera. I take pictures for myself and friends, not for social media.
If camera is really important to you, I hear Pixel camera is pretty good, or even an s8. If I had to choose other than this phone, I would've gone with Pixel 2 (if it was cheaper) or Lg G6 (for the wide angle lens).
In short: It's up there, but not #1 in smartphone cameras. Hopefully in future updates it improves. If photographer no, if you like taking pictures perhaps. For me it's great.
I hope I helped you in your question
Anonymous, 24 Mar 2018More exactly around 18 hours, from 6am to 12am after normal social use. Some people experience different battery lifes, and 1-1.5 days is my usual runtime. Highest usually is 4 hours screen on time watching some YouTube and a lot of internet browsing. I don't really play games on my phone.

The battery life will easily get you through the day and then some with 4 hours of screen on time. I would say you will easily get 1 - 1.5 days out of this phone

This smartphone has one of the best battery life in smartphone world.
Hey, so Iﾂ知 wanting a new phone for my birthday. I currently have a Z5C and recently the battery drain problem has been real. And so Iﾂ致e boiled my choices down to the Google Pixel or the XZ1C but not sure which. I really love Sonyﾂ痴 UI but Iﾂ知 worried battery life is going to be an issue. Any unbiased thoughts? Iﾂ知 not sure what I want from a phone, decent battery life I suppose and not too large for my tiny hands
Excellent reception. At the signal bar it's always 1-2 bar compare to my other phone on the same network which is 2-3-4 bar but somehow it's the same in term of call quality or data

I just read feedbacks on Amazon again and noticed there are a lot of complaints conn... moreWould be nice for you to link a specific source(s) vs just a general "shipping company's name" (Amazon) else you just are taken as a troll. I've read no reports of this ... Esato.com Forums, XDA Forums, Review on MobileSyrup.com or many other reviews from youtube.
you see I've named 3 direct sites (2 being forums which you can isolate via XZ1 Compact, the topic at hand). You're naming a shipping company that has loads of regional sites and sellers to each region posting which reviews as you claim are customer feedback from devices shipped to them We have no idea how far or the condition of the XZ1 Compact shipped to customers from Amazon (dropped from a 3rd party delivery company at their door or handed to them with signature upon arrival or with a building superintendent.
again source or it's just trolling.

Hey guys! I just read feedbacks on Amazon again and noticed there are a lot of complaints connected with the poor signal or a complete loss f the signal, as a result missed calls and SMS, in other words the most important function of the phone fails to perform. Those of you who have this phone is it true? Or has it become better with new update? Thnx

I am really wanting to grab one of these as backup device since the size and battery life is amazing.
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.

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
