So we can all agree that the Z5 Compact is the new /g/entleman's phone of choice?
>small form factor
>32GB storage + SD
>makes girls drool
I'm gonna be honest with you senpai, it's too small. I have an LG Volt (4.7" screen) and I always feel somewhat cramped. A larger screen would improve touchscreen touch typing and I would better enjoy watching movies and whatnot in bed.
in a sea of phones adding speed lines and random shapes and being forced to add antenna lines cus they couldnt get around it, compromising the design with bulging cameras, lack of strap holes, and not even being water resistant
i find something cleaner and at the very least symmetric to be refreshing
I have never tried the z5 compact (4.6 in), but I have tried the Moto x 2013 (4.7 in), which I had trouble typing with because of the screen size, and I don't have fat sausage fingers, how do you /g/entooman do it?
To all the people saying the only thing keeping them from buying is it's too small
You are aware there is a standard version of this called just Z5 right?
It even has some better specs like higher res display and bigger battery
I own this phone and have since launch basically. I imported it to the US.
It was laggy and hot on the first month, by they have released two system updates since then and it runs great now. Really happy with it. Also the phone is getting Marshmallow this week, based Sony.
prefer my z3c to my brother's z5c, we both have devilcases on our phones. really helps with the grip, with z3c being sleeker than the z5c and all that
still a solid phone, but I see no point in upgrading
>makes girls drool
Buying a flagship phone because it looks "sleek" and you think it will help you impress women. You know what women like? confidence. Like not worrying about what fucking phone girls would like you to have.
That said, learn to hold a bigger phone. It's not hard.
And buy the phone that's the best phones, not the "sexiest".
You know what people like? People that understand jokes.
I don't have the need for using a bigger phone. That's is why finally we have a phone that is both fast and small.
I don't care how a phone looks when it comes down to it. I've been using a moto g before because of it's cost, speed and form factor.
So please don't try to impose on others what you think is normative for you.
Also suck a dick.
>I don't have the need for using a bigger phone.
You don't have a need for a smartphone. But having a better phone would obviously be better.
>I don't care how a phone looks when it comes down to it.
Oh? Are you op or just someone else? Because the op, and most of the thread is mostly talking about the aesthetics of it.
Well the thing is that my main priority is a reasonable small size phone combined with high speed specs. That it happens to be flagship fast AND small AND looks nice (which is subjective) makes it a great purchase for me. The looks are a nice bonus.
I see no reason to upgrade my Z3 21mp camera 3gb RAM and 2.5 quad core. Unless my screen cracks or the battery shits itself I don't need more power.
Only upgraded from Nexus 4 because of battery, double glass is no problem if you have a case and don't treat your phone like shit
Yeah, I looked up the price and it's ridiculous.
>Finally some not too round corners
Exactly the reason I still use my old Moto
Never had it overheat on me. It does get a bit warm at times, but nothing to actually throttle the thing.
The only time I've had mine crash is when I opened a shittonne of Chrome tabs at once.
>glass randomly cracks
I got two cracks in my Z3 Compact, but my Z5 Compact is still perfect. Haven't seen any reports of cracked Z5 backs, though. Frosted glass > clear glass.
>64GB storage + SD
>Biggest phone that can possibly fit in a normal pocket
It fits in a pocket and it has an LTE radio. It's a phone.
I'm so glad the Xperia Z Compact line exists, and I feel terrible for having bought none of the phones. The timing was just always bad. Now the Z5C is out and looking better than ever (except for the battery life), and I even need a new Android phone for work, but I just can't justify the price.
I seriously hope these phones will be successful and encourage other manufacturers to make compact flagships, meanwhile I'll give the Oneplus X a shot.
I actually own(ed) one unlike 95% of faggots in this thread and I can actually confirm it's shit. it overheats from watching video (rather, it gets warm and because shit material choice you feel it and it's annoying), and the battery life is AWFUL. I get about 1.5 times as much on my custom rom moto g WITHOUT disabling wakelocks
great on paper, sucks in practice
eh, mine hasn't. then again the most resource intensive thing i've run on it is hearthstone
no it doesn't. what the fuck are you doing with it?
>glass randomly cracks.
agreed, there are some articles on it and mine cracked out of the blue, no idea how or when but i had used it for about a month.
that's the backcover glass, the screen is the same unbreakable shit every other phone uses
I could see wanting a larger screen if I watched vids/streams/etc on my phone, or if I used it for tasks more complex than posting on 4chan, but I don't do either of those so what's the point? I have to wear a suit to work and I don't always keep my jacket with me, don't really want to walk around with a phablet in the pocket of my slacks.
I like the design and specs, but I wish it had better band support. So few phones have support for multiple carriers in the US, which is disappointing. Currently running a Moto X Pure, which was the best compromise I could find.
