err, 01 Mar 2018damn now that Samsung realize how stupid it is to remove 3.5mm Sony goes and did it...well Sony has the best wireless head/in-earphone product line on market. Customers can also be benefited by Sony's LDAC support and. Since Sony has added wireless charging to XZ2 series, customers can connect to a wired adapter while charging or choose Walkmen series for their wired earphone and smart phone couldn't provide premium sound source for wired earphone anyway. Another major feature should also be noticed that XZ2's speaker should be much much better than others.

Everything is ok I love this model.. but too much thicker.............

Don't compare to previous generation, but compare to what you consider a compact, "pocketable", easy-to-handle phone. For me, it's around 12cm. The XZ1 is 0.9 too big, so not nice but borderline bearable. The XZ2 is 1.5cm too big!!!! No, just no.

And future removable storage are sure to imp... moreif you use your sd card as internal storage it will be encrypted. so in the best case you can only format it to use in your new device. If you use it as an external storage, it won't perform as good as an internal storage for applications and games.
It depends on how do you like to use your device. I might prefer cloud storage for photos
(since I dont shoot nudes any cloud is secure for me) over micro sd card any day. Besides I'm a desktop guy who holds several 2tb disks to store all of his archive. Besides you can always lose your microsd card along with your phone, cloud or regular pc sync sounds like a more solid option to me.
I remember using the Moto G (2014) with a curved back, thickness was 11mm. It was super comfortable to hold in the hand due to the curve and I didn't think it was too thick at all. If the XZ2 compact is like that, thickness shouldn't be a problem either.
Viktorir, 27 Feb 2018look at the thickness of their predecessor, smaller phones with less thickness I know, it's thinner. the XZ2 Compact is 2.5mm thicker, but you have to keep in mind that on the edges the phone is 7mm thin (thinner than an iPhone), but in the middle the phone is 12mm thick. It's not a huge deal. If the phone wasn't curved and getting thinner on the edges, it would be 12mm thick everywhere and really uncomfortable to hold. But it would have a 3500 mAh battery at least.

Copy paste, calibrate and see for yourself
marko97sx, 27 Feb 2018But it's a small phone.look at the thickness of their predecessor, smaller phones with less thickness
Any one stating the size is still a compact then consider this is nearly the same size as the GS3, and actually thicker.
Plus nearly a full oz heavier then the XZ1 Compact.
not a compact phone.
My votes are still for XZ1C....
Nearly a perfect phone either aspect.... And with 'Nothing Missing'....
Sooooo happy I upgraded to Compact xz1.
Fingerprint on the back
Hardly a compact
Looks like a GS3
only Positive of this being released is the Price will drop on the XZ1 Compact for others.
