Xperia Z1 Compact vs HTC One
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.
The HTC One received some serious praise during its life, positive comments being based on its design – including shape, style and speaker placement for excellent sound quality – as well as interesting notes on the camera. Dividing users, the 4 megapixel sensor actually used unique 2µm pixels, dubbed HTC Ultrapixel. This results in incredible low light performance, however a lack of sharpness was a noticeable trade off.
Alongside these positives, the HTC One was also powered by a top range Qualcomm quad core processor. Now falling in price due to the imminent arrival of a successor, the HTC One can be seen as a real alternative to the Z1 Compact at this tier.
