Re: black phone not 100% black ?

Hey @JIJOK!

I decided to unbox a brand new X Compact in Universe Black for you! I put a UCH20 next to it for comparison in blacks, so that you can make up your own definition on how black it is. :smileysmileythumbsup:

In my personal opinion it really is "fully" black, but if you are still uncertain after these photos then it may be wise to see if a retailer carries this on display so that you can see it in person! Slightly smiling Face

Re: black phone not 100% black ?

Z line blacks were black, like really black.
X black is more like dark grey
XZ black has a hint of earthy tones in the light. But looks proper cool.
The last "so black Apple nicked it and rebranded it as a premium" Xperia, was Z5 premium.

But, the XZ black is really, really dark and nice.

Yeah, it is black indeed. Maybe not as black as my Xperia M2, but still very very dark. I wish it was a dark navy blue, just for a change.

It's not black. In artificial light it looks black but outside even under clouds you can see it is dark blue.
