I've got my 5. Its blue. Not had chance to do much with it yet, but the tweaks to Game Enhancer are good. Changing it to the bar that then hides itself, but is easy to pull down and grab a screenshot is nice.

Cinema Pro has been tweaked, the auto focus pull is nice. Not much else to report yet.

Most UK Retailers will be doing the headphones, and the big ones will have a lot more than 40 or 75.

Congrats, UK doesn't get blue until November according to Clove. We know it doesn't have 960fps slow mo but does it have any other slow mo mode?

I'm pretty sure CPW Will have it in blue from launch.

It has the old basic 120fps slow motion. That's all.

They usually look different from what we see on photos.

It's tall but narrow so easier to handle, it's taller than a Note 10 but much narrower. If you're looking for a relatively compact phone it can only be the Pixel 3 or S10. Don't know how the S10E did in sales but users I know say that the battery life is shocking so many went for the S10+, not even the S10 as a replacement.

"tall but narrow" Sorry I do not have a pocket 16 cm tall... do you?
I gave my XZ3 away because of its size (16cm)

Held a Xperia 1 and 5 jeez they're both compact imo (5 more obviously).
As people are saying the 'tall' (vertical height) could be an issue for pockets but in the hand both sit well.

It has the height of a 5.5" 16:9 phone (iPhone Plus)

Pretty regular these days. At 68.3mm in width it's narrower than many (maybe all) flagships. It should be a lot easier to handle. My only complaint of my 5.5" phone is its width. Hard to reach the other side, it fits in all of my pants. It is a struggle to get it out while sitting but so was my 4.6" phone when you have jeans skinny enough.

Don't know in which age people are living. There was a time when a 5.3" note was gaint for most. But now a 6.5" screen is so normal... Similarly what was a compact 5-7 years ago is not valid anymore... When the regular model increases in size and display so does the compact. A 68mm wide phone is very decent in width and handling in current times. Any less and it will enter a very niche segment which isn't a good idea for a company already in a bad situation.

And seriously if your pocket can't handle a 16cm tall phone then you need to buy new jeans as all jeans and trousers even 3-4 year old have deep enough pockets to house a 16cm tall mobile... That's how everyone in the world is carrying their mobile phones...

Accept the reality... You are not going to get a 3" mini phone like compared in the photo...
