I donÂ‘t get how they could cheap out on the back material. Nobody is going to pay Â€ 500 for a plastic toy. ItÂ‘s the first time since Z5 Compact they got the front right (bottom bezel not thicker than top one), but now they messed up the back :/
XZ2 is available at the same price as XZ2 Compact. Even people who tend to prefer a smaller screen will get the XZ2 as it is the better phone for cheaper
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2018Just bought an xz1 compact and the camera, images are soo over processed and blurry and noisy.... moreI use the phone since 2 months and no issues with the xz2 compact. If You are a xz1 user, post Your opinion on the xz1 page. The xz2 compact is a amazing phone. Trust me I used Samsung, htc, motorola and iphone and the worst is Samsung.
Just bought an xz1 compact and the camera, images are soo over processed and blurry and noisy. I'm told it's a known problem with the device. My faith in their cameras has been shaken. I mean it's worse than phones 5 years ago. For battery it's perfect.
xz2 be sure to try in the shop before buying. Don't bother with reviews. They have serious issues going on hardware wise.
Fast to open applications and web browsing
Battery life (For a tiny smartphone)
Comfortable in the hand
Sound quality (Speaker and calls)
Camera is equal to Iphone and Pixel 2 (If you want better buy a Nikon)
Build quality (Iphone is the best but IOS is not really good0
sony other phone is bad. (Low sound qulity, bad camera) but sony xz1 & xz2 series is very Good.. my phone is xz2 compact. i used this phone 2 month.. no problam this phone.. good sound & camera. Speed is verry good.. all is good
The XZs Compact is amongst Sony devices that will soon enjoy Android 9 Pie.
My question is about the screen.
With almost all gestures and a small nav buttons will the screen to body ratio actually or theoretically increase slightly or significantly after the 9 Pie update you think?
Hello, i'm looking for a compact phone, is it better xz1c or xz2c? thank you.
* Nearly 2 Months of user experience.
+ First of all it's the only "compact phone" in market which upto flagship standard.
+ Some say it's too thick but it's not a problem due to curved edges and design. Suits comfortably in my pocket.
+ Good battery life, improved with time. Stands up to nearly 2 day's with average use.
+ Fast, No lags and works smoothly. Great for games regardless of screen size (after all it's compact phone)
+ Sony is giving frequent software updates.
+ Very good sound quality, both speakers and earphone.
+ Camera is good but I feels it would be better. Specially in low light and moving objects.
+ Overall I'm really happy with this.
I am a little disappointed with its camera. I am not looking for Â‘special effectsÂ’, just a clear picture. Its jpegs have too many artifacts for my taste, there is no raw option and sony doesnÂ’t allow 3rd party camera apps (I can install them but they can only access half the resolution of the camera).
The battery is not great and heats up when I use the phone.
To use the second SIM you must sacrifice the external storage.
If I could return it, I wouldnÂ’t. I love the size.
Milo, 13 Aug 2018Hows batery life on this device? Battery life is good. It nearly lasts up to 2 days with average use. Battery life improved with software updates and several charging circles.
Another bad joke from Sony...xz1c better in many aspects. They shouldn't choose a design, same like in older 2013's phones...ZR,SP...Looks like they're not capable to improve what is good to make it better.XZ2c could have a bigger screen and no more then the thickness of xz1c.But,think about. Another companies were capable to build very slim phones with strong configuration and great cameras,but Sony...not even a great camera...sad,but we still have hope!

Great compact phone. The 12mm thickness is compensated by smooth curves which means I don't notice it in my pocket. My previous phone (the awesome XZ1c) required a cover with rounded corners to prevent my pockets from being torn, but the XZ2c is fine without a cover for me. The screen size and resolution is better than my old XZ1c. I was apprehensive about the removal of the 3.5mm headphone port until I realised I could simply buy on ebay a bunch of adaptors to leave in my lunchbox, car, truck and bedside table (I hate using Bluetooth headphones).
Q: Does anyone know whether the XZ2c can output video through its USB-C 3.1 port?
