Good odds of getting Android P?

Good odds of getting Android P?


Should do as it was one of the first on Oreo and Sony tend to cover two major updates of Android broadly speaking.

Great phone for the money, and the one I use daily alongside an iPhone.

Sony guarantees 2yr OS updates for their premium handsets. Xz1 released with Oreo, so you'll definitely get Android P
Great price for one the best compact android phones out

It is the best Compact phone! The XZ2 lost its identity and the 3.5mm socket... which was annoying to say the least.
Can anyone that's used one of these comment on performance in terms of lag/crashes etc?
I was tempted to sell my Samsung S8 and get one of these. I find Samsungs sketchy to say the least.

Remember reading one of your comments regarding owning this phone.
And totally agree it is the best compact phone, and the only one I'd recommend currently.
Having read reviews about it, and seeing people's comments on hukd.

If I didn't already have 45 phones, I'd buy this.

I briefly had an S8 but found it too big. So I upgraded my z3 compact to the xz1 compact. No crashes as yet. It performs well with 4GB RAM. Battery life is excellent. Quick to charge.

There are a couple of negative points when comparing it to the z3 compact. The xz1 compact has sharp corners which dig into your palm. Suggest buying a case with rounded edges, although there isn't a massive choice when it comes to decent cases. It's also a little heavier than the z3 compact, around 15 grammes.

Heat for the deal.

It's ridiculously quick. It's not far off stock Android, the bloatware is minimal and unintrusive. The only 'lag' is for some reason when going between landscape and portrait when doing something (e.g. video). It's miles quicker than the XZ and Z series before it. I have an XZ2 but couldn't tell the difference in speed. The battery also lasts about 2 days in normal use. It's a very good all-round handset. Don't worry about the HD display, you don't miss full HD at this size.

To help you decide - I had an S8 Plus and this phone, had to choose one to keep and one to sell. Sold the Samsung because it's too big, too cumbersome and laggy - plus I just don't like that curved display, it's too hard to protect.

This is the case I use, I actually got mine from eBay but all the 'branded' cases that look like this are the same. For some reason Spigen (my go-to brand) don't make one for the XZ1 Compact but do for the XZ2 and Compact?
ebay.co.uk/itm…PQT
Also, buy a case - all phones need cases, they are too fragile and the Sony is no different.

45 phones? Wow that is a serious phone addiction!
Was literally gonna bite at 299 last night but held off. Nice one op. Cheers
looks like a nice phone for those that want something a bit smaller but still have plenty of quality features and power. However I would have still like to see a full HD screen on it. I have a Zuk Z2 which is only 5 inch and I still appreciate the clarity of reading text by having a full HD screen.
Check out the bezels on that!

I'd happily take bezels in place of laggy performance and 57 types of the same app...
I own one of these and have to say it is an awesome phone and is the ONLY choice if you want sub 5". I do find that chrome and Google search constantly freezes for no good reason. It is completely unresponsive for 5-10 seconds and then runs like a dream. No such problems in any other apps

Depends on whether you want the screen estate. Will get better battery life from this and more likely to get software updates

i got mine a few weeks ago when it was £218 for black one. had z3 and z5 before cause i dont like big phones. this is waterproof, brilliant camera, really fast, takes micro sd and brilliant battery. what more do you want? i always buy the proper sony case cause they look the best in my opinion

Hardly mid range is it?
Thanks! Will nicely replace my Z1 Compact. Why does no-one else make flagship small phones? Even the replacement XZ2 Compact isn't small darnit.

I shall immediately be running Xperifix on it so I can work around the limited storage with root.
