Sony Xperia Z1 Compact Review


After the popularity of HTC One Mini and Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, the Japanese technology experts present Sony Xperia Z1 Compact—a small device with complete flagship characteristics. With 0.37 inches of thickness and 5.0 inches of overall length, the smartphone is easier to handle as compared to its much larger predecessor. There is, however, no compromise on power which is boosted up by a 2.2 GHz Quadcore processor along with the functionality of Android’s latest iteration of Jelly Bean. The 4.3 inches display brings you Sony’s best quality features owing to Triuminos and X-Reality Engine technology. In addition, a 20.7 MP shooter is another major highlight of the gadget.

Sony Xperia Z1 price lies on the higher end of the cost range as this is not a low-end device. The smaller size is only for convenience. The rest of the features are just as amazing as any remarkable smartphone can offer.

Design – Beauty Combined with Durability:

The phone’s beautiful design is the result of its glass front and back. However, this material does not impart fragility to the device. The durable frame is strong enough. On the other hand, 137 grams of weight feels so light that you may sometimes forget you have the phone sitting in your pocket.

Just like its famous predecessors, the mini version also carries IP58 certified protection against dust and water. Submerging the phone in one meter deep water will keep it unharmed for up to thirty minutes.

Remarkably Sharp Display:

The manufacturers have given a great deal of attention to the mini phone’s display and have succeeded at removing a few glitches which blemished the display experience in the predecessor. For instance, IPS technology has helped improve the previously poor viewing angles. In addition, Triluminos and X-Reality Engine bring the best sharpness.

The 720 by 1280 pixels resolution is quite sufficient for the 4.3 inches screen. Moreover, 342 PPI of pixel density makes the gadget even better than its 4.0 inches and 340 PPI pixel density counterpart: Apple’s iPhone 5S.

Magnificent Camera:

The 20.7 camera of the phone is, indeed, magnificent. It is one of the biggest attractions which may mesmerize potential buyers. It is accompanied by a 1/2.3 inches sensor and is supported by numerous features to provide the best quality photos. Make use of HDR, panorama mode, LED flash, smile and face detection, image stabilization and much more. In addition, video quality can also be perfected through video stabilization and HDR.

At the front, there is an average 2MP cam. The results are better as compared to VGA secondary cams. Moreover, 1080p at 30 fps for video capturing is also satisfyingly enough.

Excellent Performance:

The phone delivers excellent performance as it is run by a 2.2 GHz Quad-core processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974 800 chipset. The output is, therefore, nothing short of brilliant. It is really worth the Sony Xperia Z1 price in Pakistan.

Furthermore, the 4.3 version of Jelly Bean can be upgraded to the brand new KitKat 4.4.2. Therefore, you can enjoy the latest software functionality and have access to all upgraded versions of your favorite applications.

Connectivity, Memory and Battery:

In the end, let’s take a look at how the phone connects for internet and sharing, how much memory it holds and how long it can stay working on a single charge. Firstly, the mini gadget is a giant in reality when it comes to connectivity options. It offers 4G for the fastest access to internet. Moreover, the regular Wi-Fi, USB, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi hotspot options are also all available. The additional NFC functionality further enhances the phone’s attraction factor.

For memory, 16 GB is quite impressive when combined with 2 GB of RAM. It does not come without the added option of a memory card slot. You can extend the storage up to 64 GB.

Finally, how long your phone stays with you in terms of battery life is an extremely important factor at the end of the day. With quite a powerful 2300 mAh battery, there are 94 hours for music playback and 600 to 670 hours of standby time on 3G and 2G networks, respectively.
