Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review summary

It seems that you can't buy a high-end phone today unless it has a screen larger than 5 inches. Thankfully there is at least one exception. The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is just what its name suggests - a compact version of the flagship Xperia Z3. Unlike its peers, Sony hasn't hobbled the Z3 Compact's specifications just because it's a smaller phone. This phone is easy to hold and carry, and it has most of the features and specifications that also make the Xperia Z3 a winner. Sony's Android skin is just as cluttered as ever, but the Z3 Compact makes up for that with a great camera, good screen, and of course loads of power. Read detailed Sony Xperia Z3 Compact review
