The Xperia Z1 just got smaller.
As the name implies, the Compact is smaller in size than the Z1, but that is really where the differences end. The Compact has a smaller battery and a smaller lower resolution display but the same feature set.
The battery has dropped from 3,000 to 2,300 mAh and the screen is now 4.3” with a 1080 x 720 resolution, in comparison to the 5” 1920 x 1080 display of the Z1. Of course the physical size and weight has been affected too but more on that later.
Unlike HTC and Samsung’s Mini devices, Sony set out not to compromise on specification like their competition and the Z1 Compact really is a small version of its big brother.
