The 720 x 1,280-pixel resolution may sound underwhelming compared to the 1080p flagships, but the display's modest physical dimensions mean you won't notice the drop in pixels. Images are sharp and bright, and the screen makes the most of its real estate...

Although still fairly common, smaller Android phones have certainly taken a backseat to their much larger counterparts as of late. Sony is one company, however, that continually manufacture smaller versions of the newer flagships, and the 4.6-inches Xperi...

Since we last reviewed Sony's first entry into the true mini flagship space ‒  the Xperia Z1 Compact, the market has seen a more widespread adoption of smartphones with larger form factors and even Sony's key competitor has since moved from a manageable f...

Bad Sony's UI is fast showing its age, Camera functions and modes still limited to 8MP, Premium qualities lost in plastic frame compared to aluminium Z1 Compact, Sony's included bloat...
Bottom line It seems most OEMs are turning their backs on truly one-handed smartphone experiences. Sure there are a few out there which claim to be a shrunken variant of their flagship sibling, but none of these minis compare to the Z3 Compact, just as the Z1 Compact...

It's a little gem of a phone boasting quite outstanding battery life. If your ideal phone is a tad larger than a classic iPhone, and you have no wish to follow the market (or Apple) into 5-inch territory, then the Sony Z3 Xperia is a no-compromise option...
Bottom line For users who value pocketability and want a strong all-rounder with outstanding battery life, the Z3 Compact is really out there in a class of its own. Alas, the price is stubbornly high and there's no sign of a fire sale yet. ® Sponsored: Focus on 5...

Bottom line This isn't the first Sony phone to bear the “Compact” moniker, and after playing with the Z3 Compact for a while I really hope it's not the last. Sony's delivered flagship-class specs and performance in a smaller size than we've seen in the last few years...

Bottom line I've had the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact for a day or so now, so far I really like it. It makes you want to pick it up and just play about with it; using one hand of course. Often with smaller devices the performance is a little lacking. So you just use it for...
