Why Sony Why???

Dear Sony Team

You were the last manufacturer to build a small cell phone with a lot of power.
The XZ2 Compact is a big step backwards. 5 inches is not Compact. Why the omission of the 3.5mm connection? And why is it 12mm thick ??

In addition, it would be nice if you had introduced the QI standard also here.

The XZ1 Compact will be my last Sony, if it does not become smaller again.

Re: Why Sony Why???

Totally agree with you.
I thank Sony on the beautiful new designs and reduce blank spaces over and under the screen.
But why was the increased display size?!?!
All the lovers and users (compact) why their love for the purchase and use of this series is the display size appropriate to them 4.6-inch length of the appropriate device to 130 mm.

You can display size was increased to 4.8, for example, reducing the blank spaces on the screen in the same size 130 mm former.

Re: Why Sony Why???

XZ1 Compact could have been those 2 mm thinner, but apart from that - it looks sexy and it the right size. XZ2C looks TERRIBLE and is TOO BIG - and especially 2:1 ratio screen is nonsense. My main issue with phones is reaching top & down of the screen with thumb - with XZ2C it will be even more difficult for no obvious reasons.

And cutting on minijack?! No, thanks. I will keep my XZ1C until it lasts.

Re: Why Sony Why???

It's not the design or the bezels that bother me, I actually quite like the design, its the length of it that I don't like. It's not a Compact anymore.

Yes, totally agree, Sony's R&D must be smoking some good stuff for them to come up with this ridiculous Ambient Flow design.

Re: Why Sony Why???

I just came here to express the same feelings. I am owner of Xperia Z5 Compact. I've passed on XZ1 because they removed waterproofness. Now I am passing on this phone as well. Sony - stop following others.
