Looking for a compact phone, that doesn’t compromise on specs? You have found it, in the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. As it has all the features of the flagship Sony Xperia Z3 – only with a smaller screen, in a more pocket friendly size and with a camera that takes a truly stunning, and amazing picture.
Built-in is a 20.7-megapixel camera, backed by the Sony Exmor RS sensor. This is partnered with other great Sony camera tech – such as G Lens, and the intelligent BIONZ for mobile image-processing engine. That all makes for one great picture taking camera phone – and it is just 8.6mm thin.
Shots are captured in great high definition, with enhanced depth and realism, beyond what you would expect in a smaller version, of the larger high-end phone.
These pics can be seen in the TRILUMINOS, TV quality, 4.6-inch HD screen. The screen quality really shines, none more so than in gaming.
The Z3 Compact can play Sony PlayStation 4 games, straight from the console. This is using the Remote Play feature, running over the WIFI network – and with your DUALSHOCK 4 controller – you are now able to play your favourite games, away from the TV.
That screen has been increased from its predecessor – the Z1 Compact. This is all while retaining the same overall footprint, gaining no extra height or width, only it has become lighter, at just 129grams.
It is a powerhouse, running a very fast quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm processor – quick enough for all your needs, and then some. Snappy at running apps, snappy at zooming around menus, handling everything thrown at it.
That is the same CPU found in the Z3, with 2GB of RAM. Backed up by 16GB of storage, for all your apps, pics, videos and music – with support for 128GB microSD cards.
Its battery is capable of two days of regular use or 14 hours of talk time; 920 hours on standby time, and 110 hours or music or 10 hours video playback. That is all coming from its massive, 2600mAh power source.
Sony has even carried across the waterproof and dustproof nature of the other Xperia Z range, upped this time around to be completely dust tight.
Making it easy and friendly to use is Android, with its access to hundreds of thousands of great titles, on this compact by name and compact by nature handset, with the power behind it of the Z3, in a pocket friendly size.
