Be excited, ye lovers of small smartphones; be very excited. Sony is apparently working on a new compact phone. The Xperia Compact will feature a 5.5-inch display with a physical footprint smaller than that of the Xperia XZ2 Compact and Samsung Galaxy S10e.

hm.... well, at least they're trying, but the newer models still keep getting longer. It's the length that bothers me, not the width, because the length is the limiting factor in waterproof phone bags or pants pocket.  I liked the 129mm lengths of the original compacts.

Good news. I like the longer aspect ratio, but any small edge to edge phone with decent cameras would be good enough for me. I just need something to replace the SE.

If it has a headphone jack & is available in Canada it'll probably be my next phone

It looks physically bigger than the 5'9" Xiaomi 9 SE.

The 9 SE is 147×70 mm, even larger than the S10e.

I am excited! Returned the Xperia 5 because it was way too tall. Using a "compact" Nokia 4.2 right now but the snapdragon 439 is slow and laggy and the screen is mediocre. I will switch back to Sony the day this is released in the US!!

If it's got a headphone jack and dual SIM I'll likely get it. Some elements resistance and a big battery would make me very happy and sure to buy. I just hate the USB C this will certainly have as all my other gadgets are usb micro.

Compared to the balanced design of the XZ1C, that new Xperia is .. ugly. The screen ratio is a complete nonsense. When in landscape mode, it is totally unusable except for viewing movies. When in portrait the virtual keyboard is compressed with tiny tiny keys, and you only get 2 words max per line of text. Brilliant for a 800$+ gadget! I don't consider my smartphone as a camera nor a movie screen. It's a serious communication tool , to be in touch with my friends, my bank and for my business. Maybe the occasional picture but nothing more.

I'd love a small phone that was actually small. A 5.5 inch screen is not really easy to use one handed, your thumb will not reach the top of the screen unless you've particularly big hands.

Something with Android the size of the iPhone SE is the dream and has been for over 4 years now. 4 - 4.5 inch screen and less than 130cm tall.

Psyched to see the potential for another real compact - but it's disappointing that it "will not be a flagship device".  The big draw of the Xperia Compact line in the first place was that it was pretty much the only one that had flagship specs in a small package.  If you don't care about performance, you probably aren't going to be spending $300+ on a compact smartphone. 

Also, this is a bunch of BS:
"Most flagships these have displays bigger than 6.1", which is ample proof of what the market wants in that segment. Making a small flagship device may appeal to enthusiasts but would most buy actually go out and buy it?

The Galaxy S10+, for example, is the best-selling S10 device, not the S10e. It would be unreasonable to expect Sony to invest money into a device that would likely not sell well; a mid-range offering is the more sensible business decision."

It's ridiculous to assume that because there are no true compact smartphones on the market right now, no one would buy them if there were.  The S10e is not getting as much of the "compact" market because it's NOT a compact phone, it's just "less enormous" than others.  If I can't use the phone one-handed, it's not a compact phone.

No sony have not listened to its hardcore users.. We want a phone NOT bigger that ZX1 compact and a FAST cpu.
Why is that so hard to understand, its not a compact just because its smaller that 6-7 inch crazy tablet phones.
Compact means small..

small = ~130cm tall, 3.5 audio jack, oled,wireles charging, sd card slot, gps.
Everything else is bonus :)

All of this specs has older phones, like Lumia735. Now in year 2020 nothing like this exists.

Because no one--relatively, at least--would buy it.
