Bro, 16 Jul 2018What a fat guy lol. It's like Motorola Moto E. No way I would buy this. XZ1 all the way.Xz1 compact is a rare breed it´s perfect for me in shape power, and even tough I COULD AFFORD a new one every year I would not do it, in one year smartphones will reach more than 350 00 on antuantu ...whats the point? 140k/150k is sufficient for me, I actually sold my guge phablet the note 8 to buy this baby, I will take care of it very well and when i see that new games are too power hungry I will just keep it in a glass box, it will be remembered by the connoisseurs as a legend, by the way, I hate how lots of different brands put the finger print reader in a rounded form at the back, I hate it, feels like it s a generic phone! couldn't agree more with you mate! cheers :)
Bro, 16 Jul 2018What a fat guy lol. It's like Motorola Moto E. No way I would buy this. XZ1 all the way.just got my xz1 compact even tough the xz2 compact is on the market and like you, xz1 all the, dont care for the bump in performance, i wont change smartphones every year, xz1 is great I love it and it handles games flawlessly, you can throw anything at it....cheers mate
It is a real great deal for compact smartphones, but the only disadvantage is the thickness. it is fat :P
I would like to see more compact phones not only from Sony. I am still using my S4 mini currently and I have to switch to a more powerful compact android smartphone.

I think XZ2 Compact is a real deal if you are looking a small powerful device. My only issue as I have big hands is that it seems to be designed for right handed people only. Use your right thumb to power on/off and right index finger to unlock/lock fingerprint scanner.
Very uncomfortable to use this phone with left hand.
Well, thickness - good, good battery - even better, but xz1 compact is thinner and has better battery life :)). No headphone jack - bad, very bad, i see it like that: sony is trying to sell more devices with LDAC. Double sim - perfect 👌 bravo sony. Plastic body - very bad, phone should be solid like a brick. I understand that fingerprint scanner on the back made device more bendproof but it is not enough. I would suggest using stainless steel ( don't forget the price sony is asking for xz2 c.) conclusion: i will be waiting for xz3 compact. P.s: Sony, if you are offering PlayStation with Xperia xz2 in some countries, you should do it everywhere. It is very mean from you making such offer in states but not in Europe, considering the fact that we pay highet price, same number but in euros Â€Â€Â€.
By adding some thickness to this phone Sony did the right thing. It feels good in the hand. People are so brainwashed to complain about thickness and missing head phone jack. So what. There is an adapter that you can use, just plug it in to the heads and leave them in place.
Also good that Sony used plastic case back in compact. Finally some material again that does not play as finger print magnet.
Display is 5" --> bigger than iPhone 8.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2018If i use the usb to headphone jack converter it still not use the dac?Additional info for you. Read this:
A quote from the link above:
But USB audio is different. In this case, the SoC sends the digital data straight out through the USB port and there is ZERO processing done on the device side. Of course, since neither your headphones (nor you) can process the digital signal, it has to be converted to analog at some point. This is why every device connected to the USB port for audio purposes HAS TO HAVE ITS OWN DAC/ADC built-in.
So.. what he said is true. The dac chip inside xperia is indeed us[e]less. Because You can only hear it from the built-in speakers.
Anonymous, 08 Jul 2018If i use the usb to headphone jack converter it still not use the dac?No.
All outputs from the usb are digital. Your headphone is analog.
If you use "usb to headphone jack converter", the digital signal from usb would be converted to analog by the little chip inside your converter.
So you better becareful.. never use cheap low quality converter.

Disappear again and coming back again.
That's a hardware defect

There is always issues with displays with devices. I personally noticed that Iphone SE and Iphone 7 Has yellowish display on the top. It gets whiter as you move down. I went to apple store with Iphone 5S and Iphone SE (Both with same display) and showed it to Apple technician the difference as 5S was white compared to SE and he goes this is how it is designed. Which can't be true as both display are 100% same. You can't say there is a issue with XZ2 Compact as I am owing the devices and didn't see anything concerning so far, may be if I find it if I specially look for it.
As an owner I've never had the display issue so far, and I work with a lot with electronics, often ungrounded (thus electrostatic buildup). Some people complained about the touchscreen having 'deadzone' which I can kinda confirm I guess? But personally my biggest gripe with the phone is that as SOON as I unlocked the bootloader, the fancy dancy camera pretty much died (except making photos with the official app, black preview, no video, let alone high speed), and so far it's taken Qualcomm until a few days ago to release the source on the chipset (sony hasn't released it officially afaik), therefore it isn't even possible to compile your own ROMs, so it was useless to unlock the bootloader to begin with. So yea, I can't speak for the camera, but the device itself is a bliss to use, definitely has the best screen responsiveness so far compared to the older xperias (Z1c, Z5c) I've had, and that 4gb RAM and bigass snapdragon 845 is reaaaaally nice for a multitasker like myself, running spotify + waze + navigation augmentation apps + possibly getting called? my Z5c would literally hang and reset, this one doesn't :D so idk, depends on what kind of user you are.
This is a premium-priced phone with a known display issue.
I suggest you people to skip this phone and wait for the upcoming xz3, or buy other brands.
Dont waste your money for a defective product.
daimon, 05 Jul 2018Electrostatic or not or whatever you call it, the issue doesnt happen to the other brands. And... moreNo, you don't test all of it, just like Jerryrigeverything test the scratch burn bend to the phones. Show me all your test if you a YouTuber on testing every phones.

But why those so call "Sony user" can collect enough electrostatic? And release the static on the screen? My finger always have static but never blasting on my phone when I touch the screen, why the minority people can make it like a big problem?! Anyway it will disappear soon. Do you watch the Jerryrigeverything burn test, it also recovery very fast on the burn test.
