This is the first CDMA phone from Sony in three years. Also, a note form Sony website:
"The Xperia XZ2 Compact US authorized variant is certified on the Verizon network in the US.
The Xperia XZ2 Compact International variant is not compatible with the Verizon network in the US."

It seems that smartphone features are a bit saturated at this moment. Maybe Some people will pay extra for a smaller form factor phone that can be used on all 4 carriers.

I ordered from Bestbuy. Supposed to get here in Friday.

It was $599 after a combo deal with simple mobile sim. It also came with a $100 BBY gift card.

So $499. Yeah. Not cheap, but small. And supposedly good battery life. We'll see. If I like it I'll sell my old phone to pay for part of it. 1

I played with it in the store. It seems much faster than my Galaxy S7.

For me, it's battery life (my S7 battery is dying and not replaced easily), size and speed.

Ok..Got the phone today. Not working so great. Might return it. Any ideas on here?

Trying to use the Xperia XZ2 Compact H8314 on a Verizon MVNO (Red Pocket).

Doesn't seem to work at all without VoLTE being enabled. Does this phone have a CDMA Radio? Can someone confirm this? VoLTE isn't available everywhere with Verizon. There are some areas that only have 3G/1x.

Also, when I have VoLTE enabled on my account, I can make/receive voice calls, use data, send sms/mms, but can't receive SMS or MMS. I had my provider turn off VoLTE and Re-enable it. Still doesn't work.

Moving the SIM back to my old Galaxy S7 works fine.

On XDA forums a bunch of people are experiencing issues with not receiving SMS. A few have changed SIM cards and/or turned VoLTE off (waited 10 mins) and then turned it back on.

I've tried changing SIM cards. I'll try VoLTE off and On thing, otherwise I may have to return this.
