Just bought this phone to replace my four year old Xperia sp. It is excellent, about same size as sp, little bit smaller and lighter, same screen but ten times as fast. Fantastic battery life. I'm sure it will provide the same long reliable service as sp.

Really love that its the same size as the old ones, has the fingerprint sensor on the side (i fking love it) and has a headphone jack. Super fast and powerful - does not heat much.
XZ2 compact has a way toolarge screen and fingerprint sensor is placed like all other weird phones. And no headphone jack. like mygawd.
buy it....i owned z5compact and x compact before.
Z5 was very good - x compact was ok but no waterproofing.
Gost, 04 Nov 2017What about the camera? Is it the same level with s8 or iphone 8?
I love my z3c for the speed... moreWhat decision did you make?
I still own a z3c, have mixed feelings about XZ2 compact, and really considering the xz1c.
Z3c works good, but I have 2 unresponsive small.zones, the screen comes off, and the camera starts to annoy me, as it is based af for what you can find today..
Naz, 20 Apr 2018is this worth swapping from an iphone seIts like day and night, just buy it.
Anonymous, 02 Apr 2018I had the Xc and now have XZ1c. None of them had any heating issues. Only Z5c had this problem... moreIf I run google maps, or skype or take video and all this for more than 15 minutes, my Xc heats up, not too badly, but when I did all this in hot weather, then it was s bit much. So this doesn't happen with XZ1c? Im hoping the bigger brain makes the difference...
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2018Hi guys, is this XZ1c have same heating issues that Xc had under heavy usage?I had the Xc and now have XZ1c. None of them had any heating issues. Only Z5c had this problem I believe due to the 810 SOC
Hi guys, is this XZ1c have same heating issues that Xc had under heavy usage?
I bought an xz1 compact recently because I'm not too happy about the upcoming replacement which seems to be heavier and with a longer display and worse battery efficiency re xz2 compact
I'm happy with my purchase. It is the perfect size for one handed use. Very smooth experience. the selfie camera is very nice to capture environmental shots with the 18mm lens

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2018Please tell which to have between this and X Compact? But name the reasons as well. ThanksXZ1c.
In short, it's a bang-for-bucks
Yet, you should consider a discount period though
Long answer in my opinion:
I would say you have to go for the XZ1 Compact instead of X Compact
1: XZ1c is more cost-effective with better packed features including the camera, camera software. On the other hand, the Xc was released in a time where we had... budget-tight Sony. Everything is mid-ranged, not worth an upgrade after Z5. Camera is good yet the software behind the viewfinder is bad, especially looking at HDR quality then, the phone heats to the point Camera has to close after abt 10 mins. The inly premium is the Snapdragon 820 yet, the 600$+ launch price tag is not right. The X (X, X performance, Xc) seems half-assed to me.
2. This results from the above point as well that due to those components, X is not well optimized. You will experience lags, RAM suffocates (only 3GBs for Nougat above is not enough), heat-ups and battery drained drastically. Dunno why. But even my Z3c does his job better than X Compact.
