Smartphones have gotten ridiculously big, and unfortunately, most Android manufacturers today have decided that their top-end phones should have five-inch screens at the minimum. It isn't because they can sneak in more space for a larger battery and better heat dissipation; it's just a sort of herd mentality and the desire to outdo each other that keeps things going along a certain trajectory.

  • A compact flagship
    Ragul Sankar (May 6, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Its the mini sorry the compact version of sony xperia z1. Sony xperia z1 compact inherits almost all the features from its big brother the xperia z1(20.7MP camera,snapdragon 800 pro processor,NFC etc), except for the screen.Sony xperia z1 compact sports a handy 4.3" screen with 720p resolution and with wide viewing angles.Its worth mentioning it a flagship phone.The only downside is its price which is just 1500 less than xperia z1.

  • Awesome Phone
    Younis Rafiq (Nov 3, 2014) on Amazon
    It is really an awesome Phone with high specifications. Really meant for Smart Users. The phone's camera is very great with around 5300x4200 resolution. Although the loudspeaker is a bit weak. Premium looks and fits in one hand.

  • World's best compact smartphone
    Sangeeta Shaw (Sep 28, 2015) on Amazon
    Bought this phone (Black) around one year back and making the most of it with watching movies, listening to music, clicking, recording, heavy gaming, internet surfing, partly office work and much more. This phone is way better than any iPhone model, currently available in the market. Even the latest iPhone 6 is not better than this one.
