The most stupid is to make a phone with a curved back
and moving the fingerprint to the back from the best place on the side.
Sony, If in the US you can not use it ,make a phone for the US market and leave us the fingerprint on the side,
Headphones jack can be gone,use bluetooth only already 10 years,
But sorry this phone looks like an LG or other cheap Chinese phones,
why did it grow? the idea of thin bezels is to make a smaller phone,Ok it is 5" 18/9 but it is also 10mm longer than my Z3C and 6 mm than my XZ1C with its "huge" bezels... and only few years ago a 5 inch screen was XXL and not compact.
what a luck that my XZ1 compact is only 6 month old.
let's hope September announcements will fix some of this.

PT020 you've been on these boards for a very long time and an & Sony user.
You do recall used a curved back for a few years since the original Xperia X1 and the Xperia Arc/Arc S right? Worked then for better long term comfort in the hand and with a glass back less prone to slip out of your hands lest the drop break the glass. I'm not in favour of Sony yet again using a glass back to a phone, in fact I'm vehemently against it ... but that's the hand we're dealt for now. Like you said it's a long wait for Fall 2018 and you've only got a 6mth old phone perfectly working until then.

Cheers.

I have never had one of those for the same reason.
when you put your phone on the table you can't use it.
My Sony Ericsson were all flat ... K750,W800i,P1i,W902,W995 and Sony Z1C,Z3C,XZ and XZ1C.

While, like yourself, I prefer flat back phones ... less smudging over rubbing on any surface and the edges fair better for my own grip (small hands) ... you're wrong on the phones you've posted having flat backs.

K750 has a huge camera shutter hump on the back that is not level with the rest of the back which still is slightly curved. (you've must've forgotten this, take a good look at the next pics or dig up your old K750)
W800i modelled after the K750 same thing.

That W995 was the ultimate evolution for the K750 and Walkman series ... but never came to North America. Would've been a perfect phone to modernize with Android, removing the sliding keyboard.

Both K750 and W800i had a bump but it was kind of flat

At that time phones were small and easy to hold in a hand
this days you've got a big phones you want to put it on the table and you can't.
And this is the compact ...
Just forgot one of my favorites ... had also (still have) the SE Xperia Mini Pro.

Sorry a bump is a bump: K750/W800i
Prior to then Ericsson made 2 phones: T28World and T36m both where VERY flat at the back, still easy to hold ... but the round large bump from the antenna made those two not sit flat either.

XZ1 Compact fine piece of kit I've been going over that thread ... I may just order one late this summer just before it's out of production (1yr timeline from release) has a secondary travel phone. As it stands Sony is the only one with a current tech compact smartphone with top shelf specs. Apple's iPhone SE is a year old now.

You are right very few smartphones are flat at the back now.
Samsung SGS 8 Rugged is flat I think,
iPhone 7/8/X are ... save for the camera bump yet it's small in comparison to many curves on the back of other phones. Subjective view of course.

I already tried to explain you that this kind of phones
you did not use on the table.
They were too little and non touch.
I'm going to have a new phone in September,
they better do something nice for me

sweet headphones ... will this sweeten the pot to change your mind and upgrade PT020? I'll have to check if XZ1C has this deal still.
