    I have been using the z5 compact ever since my Note 4 gave up on me. Since the X compact is out I have been contemplating buying it.

    Your views on x compact vs the z5 compact.

    I too am attracted to it. The use of a Snapdragon 650 and other cost cutting measures don't seem to have compromised it enough to matter, though the UK price is still a little high.

    Well I personally feel the cuts are too much to compromise. Lack of waterproofing alone is a lot. Plus the design seems to have taken a step in the wrong direction. Dsnt make owning a small phone as rewarding as the z5 compact.
    Still, owing a newer phone is a tempting proposition!
    I hope nougat lands soon enough on the z5 compact. Will make it easy to make a decision

    I have about a dozen devices I rotate through (I'm a software developer) and have to say the X Compact is my favorite.. The camera on the X Compact is noticeably better than the Z5 as is the battery life in my experience. Frankly, since I've never dropped my phone in water, I don't care about the waterproof feature...it's fine with an occasional couple of drops of rain which is all I need.

    The camera is still crap like the Z3C and Z5C but otherwise it's a solid device.

    I don't base my purchasing on how good the camera is, but my iPhone 7 takes way better photos.

    I agree with this. I had and loved the Z3C and the Z5C.... The XC is a durn fine phone.. Don't let the specs fool you as it's actually snappier than my Z5C is..

    Camera is better on the XC, the phone does not get hot like the Z5C did and battery life is a little better on the XC..

    My one and only complaint is the glossy finish on the XC.. I wish they had kept the same exact form as the Z5C but all in all I highly recommend the phone..
