- Great 4.3-inch 720p HD screen
- Water and dust-proof
- Solid battery life
- Doesn't compromise on performance despite its size
The current king of the mini smartphones is the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact
. It doesn’t make the same performance compromises as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
and the HTC One Mini 2
and as a result is a fantastic 4.3-inch Android smartphone.
The single aluminium frame gives it a construction similar to the iPhone 4S
, and despite the drop down in screen resolution it's still a sharp and colourful place to watch HD video.
It uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU as the Xperia Z1 so expect a similarly slick performance and it manages an all-day battery life.
The 20.7-megapixel camera produces good but not Nokia Lumia 1020
-rivalling photos but if you are looking for classy mini, this is the best out there.
Oh, and it's waterproof too!
