It's rectangular with a flat top and bottom, and curved sides (the casing, not the screens).
Look how easily the (metal) 5.2-inch XZ dwarfs the 4.6-inch (plastic) X Compact.
The two phones share the 23-megapixel camera on the back, with which Sony has made its name in phones.
Filters and extra apps are built right in.
You can add expandable storage here.
The all-metal unibody design means no popping out that battery.
It's slim without feeling too stark.
The power/lock button works with a fingerprint scanner...unless you live in the US. Why?!
A dedicated camera shutter button and USB-C charger port live toward the phone's bottom edge.
The phone rebooted when the SIM tray's pulled out.
Laser autofocus gives the rear camera an assist. The front-facing camera shoots with 13 megapixels.
