The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is an apt choice for those who prefer to hold phones with one hand. It is a premium device that will soon launch with the Sony Z5 in the United States.
As of now, the unlocked versions of both models will be launched on Feb. 7. The Xperia Z5 will be sold at a price of $599.99, while the Xperia Z5 Compact will be sold at $499.99, reports Tech Times. While Xperia fans have a lot of expectations from the two mobile phones, let’s review the Xperia Z5 Compact and find out how it fares in the market.
Design and display
Appearing small in size, the Xperia Z5 Compact measures 8.6 millimeters in thickness and has a 4.7-inch screen. Given its size, it is easy to put the phone into pockets. However, the device has hard edges bulging outside that do not make it look so appealing.
The Xperia Z5 Compact camera is the same shooter you found in the bigger Xperia Z5 and Z5 Premium phones. It has a 23MP rear camera that can take quality and decent images. The camera, however, takes a few seconds to load, which means that you might miss a few spontaneous and important moments while shooting.
The Z5 Compact surprises you with a powerful battery. After charging the battery once a day to its full capacity, it can survive almost the entire day based on moderate usage. Apart from this, the biggest plus point is that the battery offers two-day standby time.
Apps run smoothly on the Z5 Compact. You will find notifications and shortcuts for apps at the top side of the screen. It is easier for you to access various Android apps like Gmail, Facebook, Messages and Twitter in a bar at the top of the screen, reports Financial Review.
Hence, the Xperia Z5 Compact packs good features, but the price and design of the phone are not so impressive.
