Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is based upon its larger model that has already made its name in the smartphone’s market. The 4.6-inch handset has loaded with the Snapdragon 835 processor that promises to deliver impeccable performance. With its compact design, the device perfectly fits into your hand and one can even use it with one hand. That calls for some applause, at least when every other smartphone measures 5 inches or more.
XZ1 Compact’s battery will sail you through a regular day.
Let’s take a ride and get to know more about it.
To keep it compact, Sony has rightly designed its frame. Though for some, this device can be a bit boxy and bulky, but if you compare the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Compact, there is not much difference. The plastic build has surely drawn a lot of criticism and calls for some upgrade. The one plus point of the glass fiber woven plastic is that the device is both strong and lightweight.
The right side of the device is occupied by volume rocker, power button, and camera shutter. The power button has an inbuilt fingerprint scanner that rightly fits your thumb and you will hardly feel any inconvenience while authenticating your fingerprint. However, the fingerprint scanner option is missing from the models available in the US.
The display is shielded by Gorilla Glass and top and bottom surface are brushed with the metal touch. XZ1 Compact is dust- and water-resistant and have an IP65/68 rating, so you can take it for a ride. It is available in various colours including Black, Snow Silver, Horizon Blue and Twilight Pink.
The XZ1 holds 4.6-inch higher-resolution display that supports 720p HD resolution. At 720p, the device impresses with decent picture quality. By not bringing the HD display in the compact version, Sony has rightly tapped the battery output, which could have drained it much faster.
Its Triluminos display produces some vibrant graphics and can be optimized according to the colour temperature. Viewing angles and brightness are also wholly pleasing.
Sony has packed the device with Snapdragon 835 chip and 4GB of RAM on board. Hence, if you doubtful about its performance, take my words, this phone can outperform many of the phones of the same segment. This makes it one of the most powerful smartphones present in the market. Even after putting Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact with multi-tasking, there is no visible lag in its performance.
The device comes in 32GB of storage variant, which is way less than what its rivals are providing. Sony should have worked in this area as, these days, 64GB storage space is fast becoming a standard feature.
Out of the box, Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact runs on Android Oreo, which certainly gives it an edge over others.
The device has 19 megapixels in the back and 8-megapixel in the front. The primary camera is apt for capturing slow-mo videos that can record videos at 960 frames per second. The other key feature is the Predictive Camera, which will save you from taking a blurred image even if your hand get a flick at the last moment. It does this by shooting three images in a burst before you press the camera shutter and here comes the smile-detection technology into play. Though camera performed really well all through the testing, it didn’t impress in the low light conditions. The picture may get some grains while clicking during the night.
The front camera offers a 120-degree field of view, which is perfect for selfies and group selfies. So, if you are a social media addict, make full use of the secondary camera.
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact comes powered with 2,700mAh battery that can last a full day. All thanks to its 720p display, Snapdragon 835 chipset, and Android Oreo software. You will find the same battery pack in the Sony Xperia XZ1 which survives less than the compact battery pack due to obvious reasons.
Interestingly, the plastic body of Xperia XZ1 Compact can support wireless charging, but due to unknown reasons, Sony has back stepped on this pivotal feature.
Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is an apt phone for people who don’t wish to carry big metal pieces and are more concerned with performance rather than looks. Being the younger sibling of Xperia XZ1, the compact model has ticked most of the boxes in terms of overall experience. Whatever downsides of this phones are, still they are not major enough that one can’t sideline them over its performance and
Like most of the Sony devices, Xperia XZ1 Compact is priced a bit high and that may become a limitation for a person, who is looking for a budget smartphone. Its rivals stand out to be Honor 9, iPhone SE, and OnePlus 5T.
Where to buy: MSRP $599.00
