The Xperia Z3 Compact Android smartphone is a step up from the competition, and a size down. Keeping to Sony's brilliant OmniBalance design, they kept the shatterproof glass encased in a single, solid aluminum frame with smooth edges as to ensure the Xperia Z3 Compact kept the classic, comfortable, and signature Xperia feel while paring it down to 127.3 x 64.9 x 8.6mm size (original Z3: 146 x 72 x 7.3mm).
This dust and water resistant IP68 certified powerhouse has not only the looks, but all the brains you have come to expect from today's smartphones.
Even though Sony may have reduced the physical size, they kept their enormously powerful 20.7 megapixel camera, giving you the ability to take sharp, vivid, and beautiful photos and videos no matter what circumstances you are in; and using Sony's enhanced video mode, you can capture memories in stunning detail in 4K resolution (3840×2160 pixels/30p) at four times the detail of Full HD.
To enjoy the latest content in stunning quality and vivid colour right in the palm of your hand, the Xperia Z3 Compact's screen is a 4.6" Full HD TRILUMINOS™ display enhanced with an X-Reality Engine combined with a gorgeous Live Colour LED Capacitive Touchscreen. This provides the widest palate of rich natural colours for the sharpest images and a viewing experience that continues to be as close to reality as possible.
The Xperia Z3 Compact doesn't skimp on power either, armed with the fully integrated Qualcomm® MSM8974AC Snapdragon™ 801 processor with 2.5 GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPUs and Adreno 330 GPU; accented with the Z3 Compact's 4G Capabilities; there is more than enough power and speed to do everything from super-fast web surfing to video streaming without the wait or disruptions.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is a smartphone everyone from the most intensive users to the most modest of them can enjoy.
