Had a quick look at the XZ2 Compact and S9 together in my hand and I'm still baffled to why its so thick. Fair enough they have bezels for the speakers but I see no need for that kind of thickness. Also, the battery life is nothing compared to the XZ1 Compact which is a real shame, its one of the most appealing aspect of the Compact line. Yes you have a better screen but they should add a larger battery to compensate.

You're also forgetting the "less-than-top-shelf" CPU in the XZ1C that lends to it's better battery life. Also no IP68 rating on that device, which has always been a hallmark of Sony and SonyEricsson phones long before the industry even thought of making it a standard. thickness does help lend to less drops out of the hand when hardly paying attention (along with the raised edges).

It seems you are confusing XZ1 Compact with the older X Compact. XZ1 Compact has the Snapdragon 835 and is IP68 rated. But having exactly the same battery capacity as the regular XZ1, as well as a lower res (720p) and physically smaller display results in amazing battery life (probably the best in a Sony device to date).

You are correct. I was thinking about the X Compact ... that was the interim model between the Z5C and the XZ1 Compact. Design looked nice but just didn't bring the goods the fans and faithful really needed.

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.


Got 6 month ago the MDR-1000X with the XZ1C ... But I still think the older MDR-1RBT have a better sound quality and are much more comfortable .. but no noise cancelling.
And the deal was only with pre-order (same for the XZ2C) ,but too late for the XZ1C .

This phone has almost every greatness the XZ2 have. But the design.. dear lord, I can't get over at how bad this phone looks. The front looks good, but when I look it from the side and its rear, especially, looking very bad to me. The ambient flow design works well for XZ2 for me (since it has glass back, I thought the design of XZ2 is a step up from XZ1), but for a phone that has that type of design, it looks ugly, especially with that plastic back, a downgrade from XZ1 Compact's design (which has a great design).

Although, the performance of this phone and how it could cram those great things from XZ2 to this very small body, made the phone spectacular. Not my first choice but if I love small phones, I would buy this phone.

Just got mine
well ,
It's really better than I expected, specially the design , It look much better in real life.
The curvy back REALLY comfortable to hold , as I have Z5 compact with flat back, I noticed the difference.

Everything in this phone is good and high quality, specially the speakers , much louder than Z5c.

maybe the only 2 things hoped to be better :
1- the notification light, so small and not bright enough
2- the weight , not a big problem , but holding both Z5c and XZ2c , u can feel the weight, also I understand
hot hard to pack all these features and such small body , sure the weight will be more

one last thing, the size is not really can be considered as a COMPACT

OK smaller than the rest , but not compact.

I found another annoying thing

why the scene selection removed from Manual camera setting?

I was playing with this one in the shop the other day,
really great one!
I think of getting it (or XZ Premium).

Scenes have been deleted from Manual loooong time ago.
