The Xperia Z3 compact is mini version of the bigger Xperia Z3 by Sony, this phone has a Snapdrragon 801 CPU, comes stadard with 2GB of RAM, 4.6″ screen that is not 1080p but rather only 720p but its camera is impressive rated at 20.7MP. The Xperia Z3 is also safe to be around water, although I would not take it swimming.
The Xperia Z3 mini features a rather disapointing “plastic” casing a big difference from the aluminum casing found in its big brother the Xperia Z3
Features we liked about the Xperia Z3 mini:
1. The size.
2. Dedicated camera button.
3. Nice 4.6 inch screen, bright with HD.
4. Great sound quality thanks to Boomsound.
5. NFC capabilities.
6. Above expectation in its battery, expect lots of hours of play.
7. 20.7 Mega Pixel Camera will not dissapoint.
The not so good include, somewhat sluggish Android 4.4 KitKat that Sony incorporated with its own skin. Then there is the bloatware issue, comes with many unwanted apps.
Don’t forget the Xperia Z3 compact allows you to use the PS4 Remote Play feature and is dust resistant.
