Extremely, i mean extremely, shitty camera (eu version). Feels like some crappy chinaphone (very bad one). In low light cant focus with any decent speed (old lg g3 would focus in any light). In skype cant focus on the person talking at all (focus on infinity instead of the person).
And coming from moto g 1st gen they really could put at least an hd screen with oled. it is not like it is a very cheap device.
Quirky question: does anybody notice a difference in thickness feel on the side with the power and camera button compared to the other side?
When I tested the X compact I noticed it was slightly fatter/thicker to the touch than the left side. I think I read a comment that it's because of the batter pack being there and the camera button electronics?
It drove me nuts :)

XZ1 Compact if you want a smaller phone and better battery.
Great battery life, size and perfomance.
Spaceandtime, 12 Oct 2017Hi Sony. Would love to buy this phone but....

4.SE is a joke compared to this tbh, cant say more
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2017iphone SE without hesitation. Sony phones have too many bugs.brah you probably used z3c
xz1c is in another league compared to iphone se
software is were sony is superior than any other oem
Gost, 04 Nov 2017What about the camera? Is it the same level with s8 or iphone 8?
I love my z3c for the speed... moreafter using z1c's worst camera I still believed in sony and my xc proves sony do have great camera .specially in daylight its equal to those 90+ rated phones easily
and many reviewers are saying xz1 series has the best sony camera with
there camera has best detail in zoom thanks to the M.Pixel
I am thinking of buying this phone to replace my iphone 6. I have two numbers and two phones, one is a Note 8 and the other iphone 6, but to replace the iphone I would like a smaller device like this XZ1 compact. Now I doubt between the blue and pink color, I like both but I am a guy. SO the pink color... on pics it looks a bit of copper/pink combination, how is the color in real? In shops I only had a hands on experience with the silver color. None of the other two are on display.
Hello I have this xz1 compact and I think I may have a problem with wifi. Somehow I believe the wifi connects and disconnects a lot off on off on off on... Somehow isn't so stable I guess. Anyone experience this behavior? I have set always on during sleep so I'm not sure what could be the problem. Mobile data seems fine.

In daylight this camera is easily among the best, in low light alright in manual mode 8mp with hdr on. Problem area is indoors and/or when dynamic range is really high.

There is almost a literal ton of devices with that screen size out there!
Let's keep the compact on its roots, that's what this devices is for: little (sub-5") and powerful (flagship SOC and camera).
