Anonymous, 05 Mar 2018Very very nice compact phone but it's too thickHow do you like the XZ1 Compact?
Never considered it until I saw XZ2 compact, lol,..
Do you have any problems with it?
The Sony forum has it all full of issues... :(
This phone is way too thick.
This phone has no headphone jack.
This phone has no more radio.
I'm actually ok with the screensize. It's the smallest 1080p+ smartphone and therefore can be called compact.
What people not realize is that this phone has a 18:9 ratio instead of a 16:9 ratio. It's still 6mm but it's still the most compact 18:9 phone today.
Sadly, the thickness of 12.1mm is ruining this phone entirely. I know it's thinner on the edges but I don't care because you can feel this bulge when you have this phone in your pocket. And that's what's bad about it.

Dont like this new design...
I loved how Sony had their own desing if i can call it that way... Today all phones are 6inch and 5inch is a compact now, whats next 7inch phones?? In a year or 2 we will have to buy bags for our phones XD

So they took everything I like about the design - which is what made sony so unique -and then threw it away. Might just wait for the next compact phone and hope they got their mind straight for it

Ali Bashir, 03 Mar 2018I will say it again, since when the compactness of the phone is measured by the screen size? Compact means being able to reach top/bot of the screen one hand with a thumb without stretching it forcefully. And 5" inch ain't cutting it specially if your a girl with small hands.

It looks like a Â€100 phone. XA1 has classier Design than this. They should have just taken the XZ2, which looks good (only a bit thick), and shrink it down in size and they had a winner. But as it is, the iPhone 8 is probably a better small phone option.
