    Not to bash anyone but LG G2 from 2013 was as compact as this "compact" phone 5 years ago … If not more …

    Swollen htc U12. Thicker phone to accommodate less features, cheap fp sensor placement.
    RIP Sony

    I'm glad i stopped at my XZ1 Compact. The XZ2 looks like an HTC and LG hybrid, and they hurt most of their Compact market by making the XZ2c bigger. What I hate is that Sony seemed to have obeyed non-Sony fans who complained about their design and wouldn't have bought a Sony anyway and ignored positive criticism and suggestions for improvements from loyal fans.

    Not cool Sony. Bring back the sleek square design. Looks like everyone's round-cornered, effeminate handsets now. Won't be buying this one.

    The XZ2 compact would've been the perfect phone if it still had that headphone jack.

    So..more of a preview than review? I like how they changed up the style for the first time in 5 years and improved some features, but some big steps back. The fingerprint scanner is finally coming back to the US market and was in perfect location on the power button, but now it's a dimple on the back. It still retains the front speakers and added a DAC for better audio, but they removed the headphone jack. Personally, 1080p display is fine but as a flagship that'll be as expensive as other top phones, 1440p should've been in there
