Greatness awaits .

@mefa2: The frame looks much nicer than the one of the Z3C.

@badassmam: I think in this comparison the Z5C should rather be a Cayman GT4 .

@ascariss: It did only get thicker by 0.3 mm, but it also houses now 100 mAh more.

Indeed, should help in the battery life ever more, maybe it will go for 3 days haha.

Ok how did the z5c get thicker versus the z3c? Wonder if this is for the extra cooling/heat dissipation?

I think it has more to do with bigger battery and other components (octa-core processor). I don't like the frame around it, it's too wide. The frame in the Z3C wasn't wrapped around the glass which made it look thinner than it really was. You can clearly see here:

I also don't like a few other things. First - Compact is no longer symmetrical. Thin lower bezel looks nice but the top one is just too big. They could've used 4,7" display to cover that. Also, promo pic:

Did Sony photoshopped darker areas on the top and bottom of the screen or you can disable them? And my bigget complain720p display and 2GB of RAM for 550€? That's S6 or G4 territory!

Is it confirmed that the frame is metal and not plastic?

@penguino: Z3C was also not symmetrical. There it was the other way round: Thin top bezel, thick bottom bezel. Z5C looks much nicer in that aspect than its predecessor.

@goldenface: The opinions are divided. Here are some sources for metal frame:


We've been told that the frame surrounding the Z5 Compact is aluminum as well.



It's a phone with a retooled exterior, losing the translucent frame of the Z3 Compact and going for the same metallic rim - with engraved Xperia logo - as the other Z5 phones.



Both the 5.2-inch Xperia Z5 and the 4.6-inch Z5 Compact have metal frames and frosted glass backs with the Xperia logo etched into the side.

An interesting question, I pose another which carriers globally actually support this currently and will in the next 8mths and officially posted so on their sites?

Z3C looks a LOT more premium than the Z5C. If not for the latest CPU and better camera I'd be shopping for a Z3C in mint condition. As it stands the touch sensor is a bonus for rapid use and locking and soon to be HUGE global standard for shopping (physically and virtually via the browser), so going back is not something that'll be good for long (6-12mths estimated).

Decisions!

I agree, Z5C's frames are too wide, they're wrapping around the glass.

Z3C was (and still is) much more symmetrical than Z5C:
