Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Review

Here is a true value on the smartphones market. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is slim, compact, and yes - waterproof! Its small size allows you to use it with one hand only and take it anywhere, in a pocket or a purse. For those who want a solid, compact phone along with wholes benefits of latest generation smartphones ... Sony creates here a true champion! Sony claims its smaller version of the Xperia Z3 has the best camera to be brought to their lineup for spectacular pictures in any light.

 

Whether you are going to be using it in low-light areas or in the brightest sunlight, this smartphone really is smart as it can adjust to the environment when it’s time to take the perfect picture. This is due to two amazing technologies: Cybershot and Handycam, which help you take perfectly balanced pictures, clear and crisp videos, and even getting an underwater shot! It is compatible with the most innovative Sony audio technology from headsets and digital headphones to the last generation game console, Sony PlayStation 4, through a PS4 Remote Play! Another good surprises: the battery life is quite amazing for a top smartphone ! Using it intensively, it lasts up to 2 days, allowing you to carry this adventurous smartphone with you everywhere, even without its charger.

 

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is close to the same body size as its older brother the Z1 and yet has a 4.6 inches in display size. The screen is bigger, but you don’t get a very much bigger phone! This android phone offers a 2.5 GHz quad-core processor and benefits from the latest Sony’ apps and options. However, some preinstalled apps aren’t useful to everybody, and you might want to suppress them to gain storage room. This smallest version of the Xperia Z3 has a minimalist approach to its design with a glass front and back, and a plastic opaque band wrapped around it, instead of the aluminum one (mostly adding to the waterproof aspect of the phone). Its resolution is slightly lower than come of its competitors can offer as its display only has a 720p resolution as opposed to other mobile phones that offer up 1080p. It has a 319 pixels per inch display that pays up for its waterproof ability but won’t be sharp enough to compete with other smartphones or phablets you would be able to purchase with the same budget. No worries though, thanks to Sony’s technology, the screen is perfectly suitable does offer clarity and HD quality, just not at the 1080p mark.

 

Android software powers this phone with the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat release and it keeps the same structure many have grown used to. Such as for instance, multi home screen choices, notifications that pull down from top to bottom and the settings bar that users have grown attached to. A few differences appear in this version, such as a help menu and an app tray to stay organized, and those reveal really useful and won’t be hard to handle quickly. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact has a 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and boasts a nice 2 GBs of RAM memory. So what it lacks in display it definitely makes up for in power not just for the phone but for its 20.7 megapixel camera as well.

  • The Good :
    Powerful processing speed; Waterproof during 30 mins; 20.7 MP camera
  • The Bad :
    Display not as clear and crisp as other offerings; 720p in a sea of 1080p offerings
Our score:
4.5 / 5
