People talking about good battery life don't understand that in real life, the conditions of use may vary from the ideal test conditions. The famous XZ1 with it's 2700mAh battery, won't even take you to the late afternoon if used for messagging (like 100whatsapp msg) and some 9gag browsing, on cellular network.
Who the fk cares if the phone lasts long time under wifi? Almost every phone does so. The real problems come out when you're out of the building. Any modern phone should have at least 3500mAh for the smallest screen, up to 5000 for the biggest. I use an XZ1 and a samsung A50, 2700vs4000 battery, and the second one carries my all day long with still some battery to spare in the evening, while the Sony dies in the afternoon.

I am an ardent Sony fan more than two decade. I am happy with other Sony electronic products even my white colour cordless phone, My Bravia etc. But as far as the cell phone is concerned, they are utter failure in the market, product and the after sales service I had been getting in Cochin.
Now this phone is also not going to get the market, phone display size, battery capacity, etc. are on very wrong side. They have to some thing extra ordinary regain their already pathetically lost cell phone handset market.

The lack of Android phones with screen size smaller than 5.5" is ridiculous.

Yes, bring back smaller phones, but seriously, I don't mind smaller phones being thicker as that enables for a futureproof battery. Look at the first Generation of the Motorola Moto G for example, or the Xperia XZ2 Compact.

Is anything less than 7mm of width called "compact" now???? You have got to be kidding me. And no, it is nowhere pocketable. Give me back my 4.5" phone, then we can talk.

  • FN

I don't see how a device 158mm tall is consideren anything close to compact. There was no new compact device, just hueg phablets... Guess I'll wait for the Pixel 4a and if it ain't a compact I'll have to settle for S10e

18-19,5/9 aspect ratio is totally fine and would bring the size of this phone down significantly, by leaving all the other dimensions the same. Although I wouldn't mind the phone being thicker (even if it were 10mm) to accomodate for the loss in battery size.
Something like ~140mm x 68mm x 10mm (L x W x T) would be perfect and I'd be sold.
