Sony Xperia Z3 Compact along with Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact was unveiled at the company’s press event in Berlin two days ago. We were at the show floor during the announcement and we had a chance to spend some quality time with the Xperia Z3 Compact.
Sony has re-written the concept of true compact flagship smartphone with the Xperia Z3 Compact. The fact that the device has virtually the same hardware specifications as its bigger brother is what makes us to say that.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is as impressive as the Xperia Z3 in almost all aspects. If you are wondering why, well the small-screen version features the same processor, GPU and internal storage among other things.
The only aspect we think that could have been better is the screen resolution. A 4.7-inch 720p display is not sharp by today’s standard.
The Xperia Z3 Compact is a proper upgrade over its predecessor, the Xperia Z1 Compact. The newer model is thinner, lighter and comes with gorgeous color combinations. However, the smartphone has lost its metal frame, but doesn’t feel cheap in the hands.
Sony had built the Z3 Compact with a slightly different design approach. The dual-glass panels grow out from the front and back of the device, while the same panel sit flush with the sides on the Z3 flagship. The device feels great in hands and has a very distinct looks.
Apart from sharing the same processors, the Z3 Compact also shares some of the new camera options from the Z3. The 20.7 megapixel rear camera with the increased IOS sensitivity and 25mm leans is retained. The Z3 Compact also brings the newly introduced extensive PS4 connectivity support.
The device comes with IP68 certification, which means that the smartphone will be dust and water resistant.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact will be released along with Z3 flagship and Z3 Tablet Compact later this month.
