- Great 4.3-inch 720p HD screen
- Water and dust-proof
- Solid battery life
The new king of the mini smartphones, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact
doesn’t make the same performance compromises as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini
and the HTC One Mini
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, is still a sharp and colourful place to watch high resolution video. In the power department, it uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU as the Xperia Z1 so expect a similarly slick performance and it also manages an all-day battery life.
Packing the same 20.7-megapixel camera as the Z1 the Compact produces good but not Nokia Lumia 1020
-rivalling photos. If you are looking for a classy mini that comfortably sits in the pocket this is the best out there.
