My Samsung W also suffered black screen of death, my Samsung Y also suffered the black spot on screen. That's enough! It's time to change, we want durable not toys!
I dropped my Samsung Galaxy S2 a million times. When the screen cracked in the left corner, the entire phone was still usable. When my Sony Z3C cracked it's screen after being dropped between 7-15 times during its lifetime, it was rendered completely unusable because the digitizer was dead as well, and the cost of getting the screen replaced was so expensive that it made no sense to bother. I just checked the prices and the cheapest place still charges Â€135 to replace it. After my Z3C broke I hesitantly bought a Huawei P9 but I quickly fell in love with the larger screen size, so for me it's a very welcome change to have a 5" Z3C. I am just worried that it is still prone to getting a cracked screen, and that I end up with an unusable phone if even just a thin hairline fracture occurs. Does anyone know if the latter is still the case?
AnonD-749606, 04 Apr 2018My hate for sony phones is based on first hand experience, I owned all of these:
... morelife is short. enjoy your nokia and
let me enjoy my sony xz1 compact. thank you for your "concern"
nice, 27 Mar 2018The amount of hate Sony phones get have really gotten out of control. If am not mistaken, the ... moreMy hate for sony phones is based on first hand experience, I owned all of these:
then a samsung S3
Xperia Z Ultra (still using as E-reader)
(these were amazing phones)
Then i upgraded to the Z3c, overheating and dead camera within 6 mos
got another one... same problem,
then i got an xperia M2, the phone just randomly went off then never worked again
Got the C3 Ultra for my momas a gift.. phone overheated and made her throw it one the floor.
got the z5c... worked fine but the camera was buggy as hell and quality would dip.
then i got the XZ, felt fancy, but constantly hanged, overheated and the camera was unusable in sunlight. and would crap out on me in the most critical situations
After that i said, screw sony... im not buying their crap anymore, not buying any high end crap from any manufacturer anymore.
I have a Nokia 8 and an old Lenovo Vibeshot 2 now and couldn't be happier,
The issue with Sony is instead of listening to its consumers and limiting its product line to focus on quality and tech. it continues to ignore them and pumps out a slew of Phone ranges that no one wants or needs, rebadging older generation flagships as midranges is not gonna generate a profit and when people experience the same bugs its jsut gonna make them angrier.
Believe me i LOOVE THE XPERIA COMPACT series... but sony has lost my trust.
HOW CAN SONY SAVE THEMSELVES??
1-ditch all the This stupid Nomenclature, XA XV, XBABABAE,
just focus on four Series Z, Series X, Series M and sercies C then use MARK1, mark 2, in classical Japanese tradition.
2-The minimalist designs are comfortable, however bring back the Awesome tech that make sony phones like the K800i epic, that xenon flash... GIVE US A CYBERSHOT EXPERIA, BRING BACK THE AWSOME keyboard phones, or phone accessories.
3-STICK TO ONE OR TWO COLORS ONLY, who the hell needs a burgundy metal poop gold frame, everyone uses covers! Make two base colors and release a ton of colored covers.
4-God bless the magnetic charger days, i loved those chargers, now we cant even get wireless charging in a top tier xperia. Use carbon fiber in the body construction and voila!
but will sony listen? NO, they continue to ignore any positive feedback then complain when we stop buying their "falling behind" products.!
Thats my two cents
AnonD-481725, 25 Mar 20185 inches 18:9 is as small as 4.8 inches 16:9,stop complaining please. What matters primarily for ergonomy is diagonal of the SCREEN, because with 5' it is, for many, uncomfortable to easily reach the opposite top OF SCREEN without changing the way of holding phone (with one hand)...
And the previous XZ1 Compact was a 4.6' phone.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2018meh. you again. so who are the trolls?In his imagination
I've been using the compact versions for some time, because it fits the pocket and I could sit without having to take the phone out. That was the only but solid advantage of it. Who, I ask you, dear Sony, who is going to enjoy getting their pockets ripped by this heavy and thick brick ??? It may be a powerful phone, but it's lost every advantage over any other phone out there.
Not too much difference between xz2 n xz 2 compact.. Only few differences like display size, LTE cat 15, wireless charging expect this all things are similar so why should we pay more for only few difference?
i'm not too happy with the design. it seems overly feminine industrial design. i shall pass
also, the battery endurance is not as good as xz1 compact

Â“but noticeably heavier at 168g (up from 140g).Â”
Â“the analog jack didn't make it to the XZ2 series and is now officially retired.Â”
Â“the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact doesn't have a breath-taking or futuristic design.Â”
"The XZ2 Compact is very easy to pick up from a flat table, has a secure grip, and there is no immediate danger of dropping as the sense of slipperiness is gone. We can confirm the XZ2 Compact is of a high-end build and delivers on the promised sturdiness. The metal frame is thick, the front is a very nicely looking Gorilla Glass 5, while the frosted plastic on the back is just great on touch."
I am worry the trolls come here and blah... plastic phone, you know they have the "same again" trolling skills. So I must share the Gsmarena's XZ2 compact review here.
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2018If it's 5", it's not compact, Sony.Believe me I tried it in a store and it is compact.It fits perfectly and it is beautiful at the same time.This phone would be the best compact phone if it had the same material back as his bigger brother ;D
The amount of hate Sony phones get have really gotten out of control. If am not mistaken, the performance review of this device especially the camera is extremely positive. so why so much criticism??
