Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

 

Sony's 4.6-inch powerhouse is our pick of the mini Android phones

Fantastic battery life ; Slick performance ; Great audio features

Naff plastic trim ; Still packed with bloatware ; Low-light camera performance not fantastic

This is still one of the best 720p HD displays to glue your eyes to.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review

 

Is this the best little Android in the universe? Spoiler: Yes. Yes it is

Solid, waterproof build ; Great battery life ; Capable of great photos ; Zero compromise on power ; Very comfortable to use

Camera app is overly complicated ; Not quite as premium as its big brother ; Cooler colour balance won’t suit all

Powerful insides, an excellent camera and a great battery life, all crammed into a compact and fairly striking 4.6in chassis. Impressive stuff.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review

 

Finding a compact phone with flagship specs is something of a rarity these days, with many manufacturers delivering smaller-screen devices in the mid-range instead. Not so the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, a device powerful enough to stand up to its...

Some Sony bloatware, display could be better, can run hot

There's so much to like about the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. It's one of few devices as powerful at this size, offers great battery life, is well designed and fully packed with features. Sony's pricing at £429 undercuts the rival Samsung Galaxy Alpha by a...

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review: There's still life in this mini marvel

 

With its incredible battery life and performance, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact brings flagship features to a smaller handset at a great price

Even a few years on, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is still a very capable mid-range smartphone. It was arguably the first 'mini' phone that truly lived up to the idea of delivering a flagship experience inside a smaller chassis. Even today its fast...

iPhone 6 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact comparison

 

The first differentiator between these two smartphones is the price. The iPhone 6 starts at £539 for the 16GB model, while the Xperia Z3 Compact offers only a 16GB model and costs £429 direct from Sony, or even less if you shop around.

There's no doubt that the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is the smartphone that offers the better value here. It beats the iPhone 6 in some areas including camera capabilities and durability, and when it is beaten by the iPhone 6, it's beaten by a smidgen that...

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review

 

The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is one of the best examples of a mini smartphone around, offering top-notch specs in a smaller handset at a cheaper price. Sony, for whatever reason, decided not to launch an Xperia Z2 Compact but is back with the Z3 Compact...

The Xperia Z3 compact is great little smartphone offering pretty much everything available on the full-size Z3 (including PS4 Remote Play and High-Res audio) apart from a Full HD screen. The new design is thinner and lighter plus the display is bigger...
