Viktorir, 27 Feb 2018Dude, it only has 2870...But it's a small phone.
marko97sx, 27 Feb 2018You try fitting a 10000 mAh battery in a 6mm thin phone and then you can complain how much you want.Dude, it only has 2870...
A true winner compact , well done sony for keeping the phone at 65mm as te previous compacts so we can use it in a single hand . bravo
marko97sx, 27 Feb 2018Xperia XZ1 Compact dimensions: 129 x 64 x 9.3 mm
Xperia XZ2 Compact dimensions: 135 x 65 x ... moreit is big difference if you want to use with one hand. i'm pretty sure after certain age, thumbs not getting any longer, you need to stretch your thumb to get those top and bottom screen and with those bezel less design, it won't help you to reach those top and bottom screen with one hand without having some issues. it is still compact but it's certainly less comfy to use for single hand, that's the whole point of compact phone, single handed use. samsung s8 compare to other big screen still comfy to handle with one hand. it is not that big but some people would have problem to use that phone only with their thumb
xz2c its not that bad.it is still a good phone.but you're missing the whole point of the very first reason why this line exist in the first place. compact size, manageable with one hand, and comes with high end specs. those changes are not a big deal but for some people it is deal breaker, they lose the interest to get this phone because basically xz2c is not special, it's just like other phones on the market, there are options in the market you know, sony is not the only phone manufacturers. very different case compare to xz1c, there is no other phones like that other than iphone se
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2018You're saying that a phone that's 4mm longer on the top and bottom side than the Z3 compact is... moreApologies, it's actually a 12% bigger screen, not 18%. I was counting 5 inches 16:9 but the actual ratio is 2:1.
[deleted post]You're saying that a phone that's 4mm longer on the top and bottom side than the Z3 compact is bulky. Listen to yourself dude, you're being silly no matter how you look at it. They managed to fit a 18% bigger screen at the expense of 8mm vertical space, anyone would take that trade off other than you.
I would understand if you were complaining about Sony of all companies dropping the headphone jack, or the pricing, but you're complaining about the stupidest thing possible.
Even with the absence of a headphone jack I'm seriously considering picking up the Z2C in a few months. I really wish it had a headphone jack - if it did I would buy it on release, it's such a shame really because it could have been perfect.
[deleted post]Am pretty sure all of the compact phones cost that much when they were released. I don't see the downside here, sure, it's thicker and stuff, I get it, but it's only 3mm and we got a bigger battery, you can't deny that having a bigger battery equals more battery. I know about efficiency, no need to educate me, but with that efficiency and more battery, this phone has the potential to have one of the best battery life out there. And since they increased the screen size to 5" and bumped up the resolution to 1080p, they had to improve somehow. I GET IT, it's thick, the XZ2 is thick also, but I don't understand how the thickness prevents someone from buying a phone. Yes, I understand, it would be nice to see OIS and 4K60, the headphone jack is gone (at least don't complain about that, it's not 2016, plus, in a few years we probably won't see a headphone jack on ANY smartphone. Samsung and LG are one of the sole survivors and they're gonna ditch it eventually, I guarantee you. Same thing with the Pixel, Google bashed Apple, and 1 yr later, they removed it). Yes, I get it, we need smaller bezels, hopefully on the Premium coming soon. The only thing I wish this phone had was 4K60, side mounted fingerprint sensor and not too thick. But,
Despite a lot of people not liking its dimensions, I highly doubt there'll be an SD845 flagship phone more compact than this. Screen-to-body ratio could have been higher though, but it's not really bad as it is. Hopefully, next year's Snapdragon flagship SoC will be even more power efficient so that a smaller battery would still last really long. Thus, the successor to this phone would have more compact dimensions and even higher stb ratio. For now, let's just take a moment to appreciate this phone for having a very high pixel density.
marko97sx, 27 Feb 2018I just have to be, because people on here are impossible. Sure, it's thick, bot okay, not a hu... moreLet me educate you. It's not just about the thickness. It's about the whole package. The beauty with the xperia z3 compact was the very fact that you can hold it and squeeze it and use it comfortably in one hand. It wasn't bulky. It wasn't unwieldy. The design was ergonomic and it worked very well. It had an amazing battery life and it was one tough cookie. The screen could have been better but at its heyday, 1080p was the riot and so 720p was not bad at all.
Now we have a taller and thicker and heavier phone with an asymmetric back that, while possibly making the grip better, does NOT, for all intents and purposes make a compact phone. And for what? To allow for a measly increase in battery capacity? I wasn't one of the people clamoring for a bigger battery. Efficiency beats size any day anyway. I can probably forgive it if it also increases battery life nearly 50% but i'm not holding my breath here.
At the end of the day, marketing it as a compact and slapping a price tag twice that of a proper xperia compact is a travesty even to the loyal sony fanbase.
The xperia x8 bulge doesnt work well iphone 8-esque sides oh well makes the xz1c an easy choice
Imperator Neubaticus, 27 Feb 2018It's taller than the z3 compact, the last great xperia. It's also nearly 50% thicker for only ... moreI just have to be, because people on here are impossible. Sure, it's thick, bot okay, not a huge dealbreaker, and since when do we care about phone mass? When did someone say 'Oh, I can't hold it, it's too heavy'. Okay, sorry for calling you names, I was triggered, I have no quarrel with you. But, here's just a friendly note (to everyone, not just you) the phone on the sides is 7mm thick, it even explains on their website, but it's 12mm thick in the middle ONLY, and most of smartphone users don't touch the middle too much, so it's not everywhere 12mm, it's only in the middle, so from the sides, the thickness is increasing to the middle and that is it. So,
1. Thickness should not be a problem, you all wanted a bigger battery, so there you go, the biggest battery in any Xperia Compact phone
2. 5" screen, it's still a Compact PHONE, not the screen.
So it's not a bad phone at all, calm down y'all
marko97sx, 27 Feb 2018You HAVE a 4.6" screen, they made it taller and trimmed down bezels, but NOT INCREASE THE SIZE... moreIt's taller than the z3 compact, the last great xperia. It's also nearly 50% thicker for only 270mah increase in battery. Then it's around 40g heavier. There's nothing compact about it. How about you use YOUR brain and not be ironically ignorant?
Don t like no radio no jack. Finnaly small phone big hd screen. Also only 5 mm more is like for those without an xperia device ,more like gigantic godzila phone.
Ha ha ha 5 mm.only
At first, I was also dissapointed with the thickness, but then I saw that the thickness is only in the most center point of the phone, with a round shape which fits nice in the hand. The bulge is probably because of the fingerprint sensor or something, because otherwise I don't see any reason they would need that. Battery is only 170mAh more than the old compact, so not related to it.
Related to the size of the phone, yeah, I think it is a move in the right direction. As long as it is the same width, it is ok.
All in all, a nice package, but not worth 600 euros, more like 500 tops.
Viktorir, 26 Feb 201812.1mm?? Is it 2009 again?You try fitting a 10000 mAh battery in a 6mm thin phone and then you can complain how much you want.

Okay, Basics 101: The screen is the exact same width as XZ1 Compact, but it is TALLER, and because it's TALLER and not WIDER, it has smaller bezels, you know, the thing you WANTED? Now, the phone is thicker because of the battery, because... Logic... What is there not to understand?

Wow, a few mm surely makes a GIGANTIC difference. Sit down
xvi, 26 Feb 201812mm thick?! I'd rather have low battery life and carry around a battery pack than own a phone... moreMKBHD Quote: 'Dear every smartphone manufacturer ever, feel free to make the phone thicker to fit a bigger battery. It will not make the phone too heave or too thick, and everyone will appreciate the big battery' BOI WHAT ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT. It's 12mm thick because of the BIGGER BATTERY.
