In the beginning of the year Sony proved to the world, that a flagship smartphone does not need to be comparable in size to a brick to come with top specification. The Z1 Compact is a brilliant smartphone that we can highly recommend until today, but it looks like there is a new player on the market. Sony presented a refreshed model called the Z3 Compact a few weeks ago. Is it going to be as good as the predecessor?

Xperia Z3 Compact features the newest Android 4.4.4 out of the box, Snapdragon 801  2.5 GHz quad core processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB RAM and a 4.6″ HD display packed into almost the same size shell as the Z1 Compact. We also still have the brilliant 20.7 MP Exmor RS rear cam, now capable of recording 4K videos ( 3840×2160 pixels/30p ) and 2.2 MP front cam.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is the most impressive smartphone from Sony we have laid our hands on thus far. It is difficult to find any of its weaknesses.

If you are wondering whether to buy it and you have the necessary funds, in our opinion it is a solid choice. We have done a comparison review of Z3 Compact and Z1 Compact and the predecessor remains a great choice if you are on a budget.
