At first, I was also dissapointed with the thickness, but then I saw that the thickness is only in the most center point of the phone, with a round shape which fits nice in the hand. The bulge is probably because of the fingerprint sensor or something, because otherwise I don't see any reason they would need that. Battery is only 170mAh more than the old compact, so not related to it.
Related to the size of the phone, yeah, I think it is a move in the right direction. As long as it is the same width, it is ok.
All in all, a nice package, but not worth 600 euros, more like 500 tops.
Viktorir, 26 Feb 201812.1mm?? Is it 2009 again?You try fitting a 10000 mAh battery in a 6mm thin phone and then you can complain how much you want.
Naz, 26 Feb 2018disgusting i certainly wont be buying this what f this is no compact 5 inch isnt compact what ... moreI'm gonna create 1 entire page me just replying to people about the 5" screen. Okay, Basics 101: The screen is the exact same width as XZ1 Compact, but it is TALLER, and because it's TALLER and not WIDER, it has smaller bezels, you know, the thing you WANTED? Now, the phone is thicker because of the battery, because... Logic... What is there not to understand?
Maz, 26 Feb 2018not a compact at all i may aswel stick to my iphone se mind you iphone is going to be releasin... moreYou HAVE a 4.6" screen, they made it taller and trimmed down bezels, but NOT INCREASE THE SIZE BECAUSE OF THE SCREEN. I must be triggered because people here are arrogant and ignorant and don't understand basics 101
eurasia, 26 Feb 2018I agree with u, I actually okay with front design, but the rear design, with curved at the ba... moreIt IS THE XZ1C size, a 5mm difference in height does NOT make it gigantic. Are people blind? Can they not read the dimensions?
Chrsjns, 26 Feb 2018It is a compact 5 inch phone... Great job sony!Xperia XZ1 Compact dimensions: 129 x 64 x 9.3 mm
Xperia XZ2 Compact dimensions: 135 x 65 x 12.1 mm
Wow, a few mm surely makes a GIGANTIC difference. Sit down
xvi, 26 Feb 201812mm thick?! I'd rather have low battery life and carry around a battery pack than own a phone... moreMKBHD Quote: 'Dear every smartphone manufacturer ever, feel free to make the phone thicker to fit a bigger battery. It will not make the phone too heave or too thick, and everyone will appreciate the big battery' BOI WHAT ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT. It's 12mm thick because of the BIGGER BATTERY.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2018I was waiting for the XZ2 compact specs, but since it's larger, I will go with the smaller XZ1... moreThe only thing larger is the screen. Do you not get the whole 'Big Screen, Small Body' Trend?
Emo, 27 Feb 2018Big disappointment!!!! This is not "compact" phone! 5" screen - what makes it different from o... moreUmm, screen size does NOT mean phone size. The XZ2C is bigger than XZ1C by a millimetre, no difference, the screen is 5" but it has smaller bezels than previous XZ1C. It's better in every way, I don't see what's your problem here
AnonD-733739, 27 Feb 2018You have clearly never had an Xperia device before.Oh tell me about it. I'm sick of these people just complaining. 3000 mAh battery in a small phone? Umm, isn't that a Win-Win scenario? Everybody should be grateful.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 201812mm thick, maybe in 2007...haha sony go homeDo you want a big battery or no? iPhone 8 has like a 1700 mAh battery, and it's 7.3 mm thick, the XZ2C is 5 mm thicker but almost double the battery. Do you want it or not? STOP COMPLAINING
According to some rumours, Sony will release a phone 22mm thick without 3,5mm jack...hehe Sony is a joke, sadly
I riley like sony phones,this one u have made a mistake they are a lot of good looking concept u can choose from not this can u do some changes to this two phones,

i actually liked the design.I never liked a sony after z3c until now. phone looks fine 12mm is acceptable by me. but I'd expect a bigger battery when I heard 12mm. since I have bluetooth headphones I'm fine with no 3.5mm jack. Only if it had 6/8gb ram and 128gb option everything would be better. micro sd never works as fast as internal memory.
Big disappointment!!!! This is not "compact" phone! 5" screen - what makes it different from other brands' models? 600 euro is crazy!!! Sony was the only one to offer a small sized phone until now. Now they lost this market. I will wait xz1c to drop price - the last compact phone.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2018Haha COMPACT, made my day Sony. And 2870mah battery on a 5 inch android? I can safely bet all ... moreYou lost all your bet .
xz1 with 2700mah which less that xz1 compact endurance rate = 82h
Now with smaller screen and larger battery with updated processor it will be 90h
You iphone ? 66h
