Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Strong successor
The new Z3 Compact dissolves only in January in Germany published from the Z1 Compact. It is less than a year between the two models (a Compact Z2 there was never, incidentally). Nevertheless, there are major differences. The Z3 Compact has been improved in many respects and draws the predecessors already at sea and the display housing from. The new Compact is lighter and slimmer than its predecessor, but has a larger screen. Sony uses the front surface from perfect. In addition, the 4.6-inch screen dissolves in HD and with 591.5 cd / m² without ambient light emits extremely bright. Like the big Xperia Z3 of bluish current white point is the only weakness of the beautiful Sony screens. A new design element is the milky plastic frame. The back is made of hardened mineral glass, so it should not be so prone to scratches like the plastic back of its predecessor. The valves for microSD slot and Nano-SIM include clean and can also be easily opened thanks to small indentations. The phone casing meets the IP standard 68. This makes the smartphone dustproof and enables "continuous immersion". Sony sold the smartphone with 16 GB of internal memory for 410 euros.

New plastic frame. Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: clear sound, award suspicious perseverance
The little Sony smartphone with the stereo front speakers is a powerful sound sensation especially with the connected headset. The music player convinces with clear sound, deep bass and very high maximum volume. During a telephone conversation you hear the other party is always good. The voice from the line acts close and natural. In the new rating "Telephone & Sound", the Z3 Compact thus points crass. An extra praise deserved for exceptional battery life of Z3 Compact. Because despite his enormously bright screens it achieved online term of 8:23 hours with full screen brightness.

The physical trigger for the camera has a good tactile feedback, Feedback's per vibration. The Z3 triggers with auto focus by half a second.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Top Performance
In small phone casing a strong power CPU works. The Snapdragon 801 with four cores and 2.5 GHz clock speed is usually found only in large high-end mobile phones. In Compact, it provides along with 2 GB of RAM from an excellent idea. The Compact runs smoothly and fast, all apps start afloat. It is one of the highest performance smartphones on the market. And also on the Web, because the Compact supports HSPA + and LTE of category 4.
An alternative to high quality Compact, the Galaxy S5 Mini. Although it is less valent, but also a very handy smartphone with good facilities. The battery life is weaker than the Z3 Compact, but still good. The 4.5-inch HD display benefits from the AMOLED technology and shows deep blacks and vivid colors. However, it is significantly darker than the screen of the Z3 Compact. A brisk pace of work, a comprehensive software package, and the heart rate monitor and the fingerprint reader make the Galaxy a good choice. A big advantage of the whole somewhat inferior S5 Mini is the significantly lower rate. It currently costs around 295 euros.
