They only have more changes to design when they were Sony Ericsson back then.
Actually before the Xperia Z era when Sony started with the Omnibalance design, Xperia phones are still quite different in design too in terms of varying models~

What this XZ1 did right over XZs:
1) Moving the volume button above the power button.
2) Moving the NFC to the back.

I actually wouldn't have minded the X Compact if it was available from the telcos. But oh well, the timeframe for me to get the XC has passed. Might as well wait for the XZ1c.

Most likely no. Sony seems to be ditching FM radio for online radio apps.

that's bad news. compactness and fm radio is one of the reason why I chose compact series. now only left the midrange Samsung a3. hope Sony will spring a surprise.

But only Sony have flagship hardware in compact size.
The rest of the phone makers are going for larger flagship phones.

Tough choice, I feel you man.

actually the Samsung s8 is surprisingly narrow enough to wrap my hand around it. if I'd have to give up fm radio, s8 would be in my sights.

But that is a tall phone compared to compact size phone.

Though all Sony compact phones are thick, perhaps for the battery.

Maybe the thicker bezel is to fit in the camera sensor and possibly also the accompanying sensors and NFC haha

Might be also because they lack the R&D money to do the innovation in design.Cannot blame them as long as they make at least some $.
