Straight to the point – yes, non-US variants have working fingerprint sensors out of the box.
Performance is as good as it gets with Snapdragon 835, if not the best, thanks to the 720p resolution of the display. Which, by the way, is perfectly sufficient on its 4.6″ display, and goes easy on the battery. I love the fact that it’s a high quality LCD panel (not a big fan of OLED panels).
It’s easier to describe the shortcomings of this device. The biggest one is the amount of bloatware, it’s just too much. Xperia this, Xperia that, check out this nonsense feature, try this useless app… ugh – just annoying, clunky, and takes too much space.
The second one is not as bad – I’m talking about the camera. You certainly can take good pictures with it, especially if you know what you’re doing. But the problems begin at low light conditions, similarly to cameras in mid-range smartphones. And, given the quality, the average file size of pictures is too large (I use Google Photos editing tool, which applies much smarter compression). That said, if you get the phone for less than $480, the camera is forgivable.
But when it comes to video, the camera surprises with great stabilization, especially at 1080p – probably one of the best stabilization algorithms out there. Super slow motion mode (960 FPS) isn’t executed in the best manner, but still is a nice feature to have. Front camera has a very wide angle lens, and I really appreciate it – it makes video calling so much better.
To summarize, after years of using Nexus devices with clean, stock Android, I have to say, the size of the XZ1 Compact, its battery life, great performance, solid stereo speakers and, thankfully, presence of the 3.5 mm audio port – all that makes the overall experience worth the switch.

I lament the loss of the magnetic charge connector that happened back in Z5 and the corresponding “dock mode”, but at least the USB C connector, while not as good as magnetic connection, is easier to stab in than micro USB.
It seems a bit sturdier than Z3C, which is good because there’s still no RhinoShield screen protector for XZ1C. The back is also no longer glass, which makes it less crazy slippery — the phone is no longer guaranteed to slide off the night stand when it starts vibrating, and I haven’t dropped it once.
The significant bezel is about the only real downside, as it makes the phone physically only slightly smaller to the 5-inch XA.

The 960 fps camera feature is really cool but the length of the recordings is very brief making it difficult to time without practice. The 3D capture feature is also really neat with a little practice. Overall I am very happy with this device.
