The last year has seen a trend of top smartphones being released then followed up quickly with a smaller more compact version.


The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact bucks the trend of smaller versions of flagship models having their specs scaled down by being just as good as its namesake.


Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Specifications


The 4.3-inch HD display is packing all the very best technology that can be seen on Sony’s TV and other products. TRILUMINOS delivers stunning reds, emerald greens and aqua blues whilst Sony BRAVIA delivers an optimised viewing experience.

The one piece aluminium frame and chasses is IP55 certified for dust protection and the phone is even waterproof.


The camera is also packing all the very best from Sony that can be found in their compact cameras including an Exmor RS 20.7 megapixel lens for stunning detail and blur free images. Superior Auto is on board and this nifty feature recognises up to 36 different scene types and adjusts the settings accordingly to get the perfect shot. The BIONZ image engine works to minimise blur on photos and Social Live lets you share image and video as they are captured. As the phone is waterproof too you can even capture underwater shots up to 1.5 metres under the water surface.


Android 4.3 is on board so you get all the usual Google bells and whistles and this is upgradable to Android KitKat so all the very latest OS enhancements are on offer. As you would expect Sony has added a number of its own features to the phone including Xperia Transfer for a super-easy way to transfer all your important stuff from your old phone to your new Sony Xperia Z1 Compact.
