Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Specs

At a time when phones were endlessly growing in size, Sony took another approach by coming out with a device that was intended to buck the trend. The Z3 compact has a “compact” 4.6-inch display at 720p resolution. It’s dust and water resistant, and is made of glass and metal, granting it a quality feel in-hand. Inside, the Z3 compact has the Snapdragon 801 CPU with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, plus a microSD card can expand the storage up to 128GB. The battery is large for a phone of this size, at 2600mAh, and offers fast charging.

Reviewers say: The camera is excellent, battery life is outstanding, and performance is top-notch. The Z3 Compact is a favorite among reviewers thanks to these virtues, and many agree that if you’re looking for a smaller phone that runs Android, the Z3 Compact is “it”. The main complaint is towards Sony’s UI, which can be a bit heavy at times.
