Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Reviews


"The screen performs even better. It's blazingly bright at its maximum setting: we measured it at 550cd/m2, which means it's readable on even the brightest days. Even with Sony's "X-Reality" and "Super-vivid" image enhancements turned off, contrast is a highly respectable 966:1, lending movies, games..."

"Shots in good lighting show up plenty of detail and accurate colours, and the 8MP shots taken in this mode are you’ll ever need if you’re a simple social media shutterbug. The 25mm wide-angle lens means that you can cram more into each shot, too, which is another nice bonus."

"Not only does the Sony camera load up quickly, the 20.7-megapixel camera with autofocus takes fantastic shots. Like the Xperia Z3, it could be a bit better at low-light shooting, especially if you are used to Optical Image Stabilisation on a Nokia Lumia, but consider us very impressed. "

"The Z3 Compact has been getting us through arduous days no problems - leave the house in the morning and it'll still alive when you crawl in at 3am, even if you're not. Of course that depends on what you do with it (which is true of all phones) as it won't withstand non-stop gaming."

"With 16GB of storage, there's plenty of space for your photos and video files on the Z3 Compact, but there's also a microSD card slot which can take cards up to 128GB if you need more room. It's hidden underneath one of the plastic flaps that help keep the phone waterproof up to a depth of 1.5m. Mov..."

"We've found battery life to be quite simply immense, lasting comfortably between two and three days between charges. If left alone, the device will only drop a few percent each day."

"Throughout using it the Xperia Z3 Compact felt comfortable, no matter what task I was performing with it. Though it has a rather stark look to it, the rounded corners certainly help make it feel nice to hold."

"... apps open in a trice and busy web pages load with ease. HD games play without stuttering or lag too, and it delivers as smooth a performance of Real Racing 3 as we've yet seen."

"Call quality is very good on the Xperia Z3 Compact. Voices in the earpiece are sufficiently loud, and clarity is good, but not perfect - you can recognize the natural tonality of your caller’s voices, but they sound a bit muffled."

"'s an extremely well-built device with a certain understated elegance. You've also got yourself a great camera as long as conditions are favorable, and all the power you could possibly need with a quad-core 2.5GHz CPU at its heart. "

"I put its waterproof boasts to the test by submerging the phone in 30cm (12 inches) of water for 30 minutes. After drying it off, the phone was absolutely fine and showed no signs of having leaked water underneath the rubber seals where it could damage the internal components."
