Sony’s compact smartphones are smaller versions of their bigger counterparts with the ability to spring some nice surprises up their sleeves. The Xperia XZ1 Compact is another one of these small devils that are in no way lesser than some of the best flagships out there. If you don’t believe us, take a look yourself!
A strengthened plastic unibody design
Sony calls the Xperia XZ1 Compact’s primary build material a “fiber and glass strengthened plastic”. We’re sure that’s the case as it feels really good to touch while IP68 dust and waterproofing plus an 8.4mm width and 140g weight rounds-off the design department.
The display size might be a bummer for many out there
The smartphone features a 4.6 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 319ppi pixel density and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. You might be wondering where did a 4.6 inches display size comes from but that’s the way it is with Compact Xperia phones. The smartphone’s pixel density allows a 720p resolution so we’re optimistic about the display’s attention to detail.
A feature-rich primary camera sensor
Other than featuring a large 19 megapixel sensor, the primary camera features top-drawer traits that include EIS gyro, phase detection laser autofocus and an LED flash. Its selfie sensor features an 8 megapixel sensor of its own and we can say this with confidence that the XZ1 Compact’s primary camera shelters a beast of a camera sensor.
One of the world’s first devices with Android Oreo
Android v8.0 or the Android Oreo will be the smartphone’s operating system of choice while its processing power stands behind an octa-core processor and 4GB RAM. Confirming itself as truly one of the best Sony releases out there, we have 32GB of internal storage, USB type-C, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, Quick Charge 3.0 fast battery charging capability and a 2700 mAh non-removable battery to power the smartphone. You can also choose its exterior from a host of colour schemes namely blue, black, pink and silver.
