Does anyone know if Docomo and Dual Sim(HK) set use the same or different battery? Im using Docomo set, and I can only find the HK set at my place. Please help.

Gcam thing is indeed sad tho.

I'm no engineer but at the time, Sony was the only one cramming so much high end tech into a compact phone (which also achieve a great battery life), so i do believe adding anything more than what is already there, was starting to be a bit too challanging to pull off reliably.

Nokia Lumia 830 would like to have a word with you. That phone also has a 5.0" screen and even has a smaller thickness than this Xperia Compact (8.5mm vs 12.1mm), and yet you got OIS. I could have also included the Microsoft Lumia 950, but that's technically cheating since it has a 5.2" screen.
Does it have rise to wake or double tap to turn on screen?
Can you access assistant when screen is locked?

It IS on the noisy side, but in exchange it retains much more finer details than other phones do. The inclusion of OIS would have been great, but probably they had trouble cramming that kind of mechanism in such a small body. Check out the photo compare tool on this website, I've been pixel peeping for hours comparing different phones, you'll see that the XZ2 compact had the best photo quality and resolved details out of almost *any other phone on the market*, yes, I'm not kidding, check thw photo comparison tool, especially the low light photos.
How is the digital zooming on this device? I like taking pictures of birds that are far away, and this was a good device for my price range. Is it good or are there any better alternatives?

I didn't believe before but i still wanted to get it a try. I bought the spigen nano liquid and apply on the screen. It works and fix the issue

pan, 03 Jul 2020is xz2 compact your last one? i am also in search for compacts... i knew people who have this,... moreNo, I got Pixel 3a now. Had XZ1 before. My gf has the xz1c. I haven't tried the xz2c. But is it only for travel and as an extra phone I would ho for either one. Design wise I like the xz1c better, I think. I like those "bricks" like elder phones from Xperia/Sony. Hos do you like the Xperia 1 ii?
The xz2 compact has a serious issue the notification can scroll down itself and even if my glove mode is deactivated it still is like that.That issue is really annoying me. Sony did not care about the xz2 trio android 10 update at all
Hmm April 2018... thats a long time Sony... you better do something real soon... Apples new 4.7" SE is selling like hotcakes

Well... Like many of you guys already pointed out: We like these smaller phones. I now got Pixel 3a, coming from a long line of Sony Compacts, just realising 151mm is too tall. Troublesome in pockets when climbing stairs or ridning a bike. Thats embarassing!
- Compact form factor.
- Good camera.
- Decent battery life.
- Sturdy built with IP68.
Those things would be "yes please" in my book.
Though... The trend is bezels, glass, camera lens gimmicks.
Got the phone a few days ago for 160 eur. Strangely the sunlight legibility is worse than my p10 which has a lower rating than this phone, so it should be brighter but isn't. Sound is great, though no headphone jack. On my model i didn't receive android 10 yet at all, and who knows if i ever will. Camera is very mediocre, and you can't put gcam from what i read on the forums, which is a huge shame considering SD845. Also, Sony opts for higher screens not wider, which is hard when texting, so all in all, not a bad phone, just not for everyone, and the limitations made by Sony are really deal breakers.
