A month is about to pass since we saw first saw Xperia Z1 Compact at CES 2014 event, as you all know it is  the first ever true mini smartphone made by many manufacturer. Well let’s put it against other flagship devices, a few days back we saw GsmArena coming up with Xperia Z1 Compact battery test result and it is awesome with 65 hours of endurance rating, beating Xperia Z1 in terms of battery and performance that’s basically because of smaller screen size.

Then we came up with detailed camera comparison between Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia Z1 and as both phones share same MP camera sensor, there wasn’t much difference in the picture quality of both phones. Overall Xperia Z1 Compact seems superior to Xperia Z1 in terms of performance, battery and pocket friendly design. Well professionals at “Strategy Analytics” has performed some test regarding Xperia Z1 Compact Camera, let’s check it out below.
