Sony Xperia Z1 Compact D5503 Features

The Japanese smartphone company has added a mini version of Xperia Z1 to its high end or flagship series. Sony Xperia Z1 Compact has a smaller 4.3-inch Triluminos 720p display with X-Reality engine (the bigger sibling has a 5-inch 1080p display). Even with a 720p display, the smaller screen size translates to a crisp pixel density of 342PPI. It also ensures ease of single handed use.

On the hardware front it is similar to its big brother, similar in design with an aluminium border to give a premium feel. This waterproof phone has a 2.2 GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor with the latest Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset to deliver powerful user experience. The dust resistant smartphone also comes with the latest Adreno 330 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). The device has 2GB RAM and 16 GB expandable storage. The device has the same camera features as compared to its sibling, it has a 20.7-megapixel Exmor RS sensor, BIONZ processing engine and LED flash, supplemented with a 2-megapixel camera at the front. The device is capable of recording full HD videos at 1080p. Other features include-Back-illuminated sensor (BSI), Digital image stabilization, Face detection,Geo tagging, High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), Panorama and Scene modes.

The device runs on Android v4.3 (upgradable to v4.4 KitKat). The supports 3G and is available in many funky colours.The phone has NFC and other features such WiFi, Bluetooth as well.The miniature has a 2300mAh battery with Stamina mode (which is smaller than the 3000 mAh battery on the Z1, but the lower resolution display should help save some power). All in all, it is the first no-compromise ‘mini’ verison of an Android flaghsip we’'ve seen (the HTC One mini and Samsung S4 mini have been stripped of certain features to achieve a lower price point than their bigger avatars).
