Sony has announced their latest addition to their ‘Compact’ Range, coming in as the smaller model for the Z3.
This new handset comes equipped with a 4.6 Inch full touch screen, 0.3 of an inch bigger than its predecessor and we believe the reason for his small increase is to rival the new Samsung and Apple releases.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact comes equipped 20.7 Megapixel camera and a forward facing camera of 2.2 Megapixel. These cameras are a statement of intent by Sony as they are both considerably better than their direct rivals!
With an Internal memory of 16 Gigabytes the Sony is remarkably average in this aspect; however this is made up by having 2 Gigabytes of RAM and the option to buy a Micro SD card for additional storage of up to 128 Gigabytes.
The big selling point for the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is that it comes IP68 certified meaning it is water resistant for depths of up to 1 Meter, the screen is also shatter proof making the Xperia Z3 Compact one of the strongest touch screens on the market!
With regards to battery power, the Xperia Z3 compact also comes well equipped and has a talk time of up to 14 hours; this is particularly impressive considering that the phone is also able to run on all formats of 4G LTE.
Like all new Android phones it comes equipped with the latest KitKat version as well as having JAVA installed as standard, making it great competition for the iPhone.
The handset comes priced in at a very reasonable £430.00 meaning it is free for new customers on a plan that is £36.00 making it over £10.00 cheaper than its rivals!
When it comes down to choosing it will always be a hard decision, as a brand Apple and Samsung are highly spoken of but with Samsung breathing down their necks they are making all the right noises to become this year’s best manufacturer!
