Voice of reason, 04 May 201824-bit/192kHz internal audio DAC, with NO headphone jack to be able to listen to it. This.. ... moreThis is almost certainly the same board as XZ2 with a couple of components unpopulated, which is dramatically less cost than creating a new board with a lower quality DAC, so probably not stupid.
2018, the year the Xperia Compact became a plus phone :(
This isn't a bad phone per say, but it stands as an example of Sony dropping the ball and completely missing the target audience, I trialed one of these as a potential replacement to my Z3c and thought against it, yes it has more MHz and RAM but that in no way makes up for losing the wireless charging, nevermind being too damn bulky to use comfortably with one regular sized hand. Bad form Sony, much disappoint.

This.. ... moreThere are some reports that they include usb type-c adapter to hook your headphones into.
All these goodies in a small form factor bound to get a little chubby. The best phone todate; Full stop. Dont care what the LGBT community thinks!!
A phone is meant to be held in one hand. Full stop. Kudos to Sony for keeping this form factor. I'm %100 certain that they will eventually win people.
One thing that keeps this phone from perfection is lack of Qi wireless charging. Let's face it, Type C connectors are dodgy, and wear out quickly. Wireless is essential for these phones. Please Sony, hear our pleas.
Sony XZ2 COMPACT is the BEST phone in this planet full stop . compared to the IPHONE 8 : 3.4 millimeter shorter 2.3mm less wider ( excellent one hand handling ) a bit heavy 20 grams only and thicker which is perfect to hold battery 2870 mHa vs 1821 mHa which is 1049mHa more juice . screen bigger 5" vs 4.7" much higher resolution 483 ppi vs 326 ppi . excellent camera for 4k video and stills . But all my girls in my family using I-phones 8 and 7 and crying like babies year after year and after years the I-phones loosing battery at 12 at noon . What else can I say spending 10th of thousands on the stu...ied Iphones

I will stay with Sony forever when they keep one hand sized phone , yes I will keep spend my money with you Sony on every compact iteration doing so since the Z3 compact

I belong to that neglected demographic people who love the small dimension phone factor like the same who love the iPhone 5 . I hate big screen televisions in my pockets anything wider than 62mm phone cannot hold in one hand . I love to use a phone with one hand . my hand are so tiny like Donald trump hands and there is a billion sorry two billions Asian with tiny hands like mother Theresa . The Sony " miniature " " compact " " out of fashion " size phone is basically the same size as the most sought out and popular phone in the world the iPhone 8 . the Sony leave the iPhone 8 in the dust . people don't know that Sony phones are exist
Thicker more durable, slimmer more fragile, this is common sense. The slimmer phone must wear on a protector case which will become thicker too, so why not just take a phone without the protector case?
initially I don't like the design (still dont like the design)
but its really comfy in my hand, unlike xz1c the edge is really uncomfy,
I had to choose between xz1c and xzc2, I chose neither becoz of low storage in xz1c, and no headphone jack in xz2c
xzc will be perfect if it got headphone jack, altho it is fugly, but I accept it as it is so comfortable to hold
I guess ima stay with my huawei nova caz al10 for a long time.
Honestly, I hate this new design, reminds of of an HTC. The only current phone on the market with the classic Xperia design is the Razer Phone. If I want a new Sony style phone, ill be getting the Razer.
Got this phone and it is amazing. Looks much better than its two predecessors (XC and XZ1C) with the ugly "Loop Surface" design on photos, and even better than that in real life. Has a distinguishable Sony design.
It's snappy, the camera is awesome, it is comfortable to use and the battery lasted all day yesterday (which is something I haven't seen in flagship phones for a long time). What else is needed?
Well, I'd appreciate it having a minijack and a fingerprint scanner on its side, but nothing's perfect.
Hey SONY...... If u don't know how to design just search in Google images.... type XPERIA CONCEPT PHONES.....ok!! don't release stupid designed phones...!
24-bit/192kHz internal audio DAC, with NO headphone jack to be able to listen to it.
This.. is actually retarded :-|
(For those who don't know: wireless headphones, have their own (crappy) little DACs inside them, and don't use the DAC inside the phone.
So the only way you're gonna listen to that Hi-Res / High Fidelity Audio DAC, will be through the built-in speakers)
batman, 08 Apr 2018Really awesome specifications but worst design ever from sony Xperia Z still better than this ... moreBecause normal people are tired of wafer-thin phones that are like trying to pick up a razor blade by it's edges every time you lift it off the table.
Outside of a few spec fans boys whose heads are buried in their phones 23.5 of 24 hours a day, who actually just "has to have" a bezel-less phone? I mean really, is a 2 or 3mm bezel a real deal breaker? If so, you need to get a life kids.
