Hello, the X Compact is not 100% black... 

 

When I compare it with the Xperia J and M2 whith photos taken with flash it seems more like a deep blue... 

 

Still looks beautiful to me Slightly smiling FaceXperia J - M2 - XC.JPGXperia J - XC - M2.JPG

Hey guys! This is why I love the our forum boards being user based, we help each other out and give each other feedback. Slightly smiling Face

After I saw your photos using flash, I decided to try it myself:

It may be me being a terrible photographer but I can't capture the blue hints all too well. However, when looking at the phone in different light sources I can definitely see that it has hints of a darker blue - but under normal conditions it is black to me. I think it may be best to scout it out at a retailers physical store prior to purchase so that you can judge for yourself.

Either way, it's a beauty if you ask me! :smileysmileythumbsup:

I took my photos with a "real camera", Lumix TZ7 so maybe it's the reason why you don't have the same result... 

 

Yes, it looks black with normal light, dark blue when there is more light, like in the sun, for example... Slightly smiling Face

Haha yeah @Delph84, it's a bit of a chameleon to me - it's best viewed in person I'd say (all devices look better in real life in my opinion). Grinning Face

Oh, and also, nice collection of Xperia devices!


@JIJOK I hope we were a bit of help, even thought it may only have been slightly! Slightly smiling Face
