Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Review

The baby brother of 5.5-inch Xperia Z3, Z3 Compact is a new entry in the Sony Xperia’s Z line. A 5.5 inch is hard to handle with one hand for most of the people so Sony decided to launch a compact version of Z3 so that more and more people can enjoy the features of this amazing smartphone. Despite being small in size, Z3 Compact share almost all the functionalities of Z3.


Taking the design cues from the bigger Xperia Z3 it features a stylish and elegant design. It features an OmniBalance design which according to Sony is a design which can easily be handled and used no matter what you are doing. Either making videos, browsing webs or chatting with your friends. The extremely thin bezel surrounding the screen is responsible for its compactness and keeping the dimensions down to 127 x 64.9 x 8.6mm. Weighing just 129g it can easily be handled with one hand and you can easily reach the corner of the phone with your thumb. Z3 Compact features a translucent plastic surround that protects it from drops and bumps plus also give it a classy look.


With 4.6-inch IPS LCD screen you get enough room to do your things accurately plus it is the perfect size for keeping in the pocket. Having a 720p HD resolution and the pixel density of 319ppi it delivers you bright and vibrant images. Anyhow it does not share the Full HD display of Xperia Z3. Though Z3 is sharp and extremely bright but if you take it in sunlight you may have to face some glares.


The factor that stands Sony apart from all other smartphones is the power. Like other Sony Xperia phones Z3 Compact also has blistering fast speed. It is powered by 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor which is same as Z3 but it is equipped with 2GB instead of the Z3’s 3GB. With this complete package of powerful specs it gives you a smooth performance in every task you plan to do on it. But there is one problem which is common in most of the Xperia Z line’s phone and is also found in Z3. These phones overheat very quickly, if you are playing a heavy game just for 30 minutes the back will start warming up.


Most of the phones which are the mini versions often lack behind because of their cameras. But this is not the case with Z3 Compact. It is equipped with same cameras as of the original Z3. Which means you’ll be able to enjoy some most advanced features like 25mm wide-angle lens, ISO sensitivity and much more in this mini version. Featuring a 1/2.3-inch sensor, dedicated camera shutter which when combined with the water proof body of Z3 Compact becomes an outstanding camera for taking under water pictures.


If we compare Z3 Compact with some of the best smartphones then it might not be able to compete them but if we compare it with the mini versions of smartphones then definitely Z3 is capable of excelling them. So if you are planning to buy any mini smartphone then Sony Xperia Z3 Compact can be a good option for you.
