[VIDEO] Xperia Z3 Compact hands on review

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.

We have seen clear pics of Xperia Z3 so far with an idea of its to be specifications but no very clear pics of Xperia Z3 Compact has been leaked so far besides some blurry pics. Today some pics of re-designed Xperia phone leaked which is assumed as Xperia Z3 Compact. It is quite different in design as compared to earlier leaked pics.

What we observed is that front facing camera and rear LED flash are at different locations as seen in previous leaks. We may be looking at two different variants of Xperia Z3 Compact or is it a completely new Xperia device.

It is believed to feature 4.6″ 1080p FHD display i.e. whooping 478 ppi, Snapdragon 801 processor chipset, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB Memory, 20.7 MP rear cam with Sony “G” Lens.
