Xperia Z1 Compact vs Desire 500
Part of our continuing series comparing the new Sony Xperia Z1 Compact to other available devices on the market. Featuring the same processing power, performance and camera of the larger Sony Xperia Z1, the Z1 Compact only truly compromises on screen size & resolution.
If you are thinking about ordering the Z1 Compact, then we also have a number of official and 3rd party accessories available here.
At launch, the Desire 500 was touted as the cheapest quad core handset available. This moniker held true until the Moto G launched right at the end of 2013, although the Desire 500 remains extremely good value for money. The overall specification certainly doesn’t challenge the Z1 Compact’s top end processor, however if you want to see just what you would still be able to get hold of after saving some money then you need look no further.
