Xperia Z3 Compact – the Mini Phone

While smartphones are getting bigger and bigger, there are still people who love handy and compact handsets. While many companies are trying to cater to this need, Sony has done the best. The Xperia Z1 Compact was a huge hit and so the expectations are high for the Xperia Z3 Compact.

The Xperia Z3 Compact was unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin this month. The Z3 Compact is not an exact miniature version of the Sony Xperia Z3, but is really close. The main missing factor is that the Xperia Z3 Compact has a 720p screen instead of a 1080p one.

The sides of the Xperia Z3 Compact are clad in plastic instead of the regular aluminum, but it feels solid and premium. There are no other notable changes in the features. The battery life has been brought down a bit too, to 2600 mAh, but even that is quite good for a compact model.

Though the 4.6″ screen of the Xperia Z3 Compact cannot be exactly regarded as ‘mini’, the handset is the best option available yet. This slender handset has no competition at all – you get flagship features with a handy screen.
