The Argument For A Google Experience Z3 Compact+Google
, +Sony Xperia
, please hear me out.
(and please reshare this if you agree)
1) We need a small pure Android phone. I'm sorry. The N4 is small enough, but the camera SUCKS.
2) Sony doesn't appear to actually have any plans to released the Z3 Compact officially in the US. Sure, you can buy the unlocked version from their store, but it's not a pure Android option.
3) It's a true powerhouse compact phone. Amazing battery. Amazing camera. True one-handed operation.
4) Not everyone loves big phones.
5) Getting pure Android to work on the Z3 Compact should be easy. Sony already has AOSP running on the Z3.
If Google released a GPE edition Z3 Compact, I'd probably have to get one just on principle. Lollipop on a high quality phone that's smaller than an iPhone 6 would appeal to a LOT of people not upgrading to the bigger iPhones. And that's a LOT of people right now.
Not everyone likes two-handed phones. Give them an outstanding alternative.
