      Kahit mga 4.4 inch lang since halos bezelless na ang trend ngayon sa flagships. Masyado nang maliit ang body ng 4.0 kung edge to edge dispaly.

      Kumusta ang market sa compact Android?

      Sony lang yata naglalabas ng compact ‘flagships’ pero bakit parang hindi nila nate-take advantage to?

      Theoretically dapat dito na nila ibuhos ang attention at resources nila sa 4-4.7 inches category kasi saturated na ang 5.2-5.7 inch Androids.

      Bumenta ba yung Galaxy Alpha na 4.7 inches?

      sana nga e, kahit midrange lang. flagship na yung sony compact. 4.7″ i think is the sweet spot pagdating sa mga compact. ung 4 parang kulang na yun. OR 5 incher pero sobrang nipis ng bezels sa lahat.

      sana kahit manlang sa midrange. 4.7″ i think is the sweet spot for compact androids. or kahit 5 inch basta thin bezels top bottom at sa sides

    Purchased one last Monday (December 12, 2016) at around 3PM. Charged the phone of four hours. Setup the phone and test, it’s great. At around 10PM (at work) my phone shutdown on its own for no reason and the power button is not responding. Removing and re-inserting the battery resolve the issue for a while. The power button works and turn on my phone. After a few minutes maybe 10 the phone shutdown again. I tried the following but the issue still persist. Turn on the phone with and without the sim card (each slot), Turn on the phone with and without my SD card. Factory reset. All the same results. I contacted the point of purchase and was advise to contact service center first. Please advise.
