    “The Z1 Compact is the smallest smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC” Japanese giant Sony is making strides in the crowded smartphone market with a different strategy compared to its peers like Samsung and LG. Not only does it release a new flagship smartphone twice a year, it also aims to cater to users who covet a flagship-like experience in a smaller form factor. The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact was launched in India just ...

    Overall: When iPhone is priced about 50,000 thousand people say it's the world's best smartphone.
    But when Sony releases a premium phone lower priced with better price and specifications people say its expensive. Come on Sony is always on the side of improvement if we see the display has been improved to ips too. In my views its the world's best mini smartphone and as far as about the price it will come down to 34 in few weeks or months so please don't hesitate to buy it. The phone is worth when you compare it with iPhone 5s. As z1 compact was only launched to take on 5s.

    Overall: This is the only small size phone packing in premium hardware .It looks just like the Z1 with almost similar specs except Four :

    1. Screen Size :- 4.3 Inches instead of 5 inch
    2. Screen Quality :- 720p HD instead of full 1080p HD
    3. Battery :- 2300Mah instead of 3000Mah.
    4. Design :- Plastic back instead of glass

    Rest it keeps all the goodies of the Z1 that are :

    1. Sexy Design
    2. Water and Dust Proof
    3. 20.7 Mega Pixel Camera
    4. Snapdragon 800 Processor clocked at 2.2Ghz
    5. Adreno 330 GPU
    6. 2GB RAM

    Advantages of The Z1 Compact Over the Z1 :

    1.Its much more convenient to operate with a single hand.
    2.Despite the 2300Mah battery it has a great battery backup because of the 720p small size screen.

    Disadvantages of The Z1 Compact Over the Z1 :

    1. Unlike the the Z1 , the back of the Z1 Compact is not glass , rather it is plastic and sony have now confirmed this. So the plastic back is more prone to scratches.
    2. I Fell its a bit expensive comparing it with the Z1 . Keeping the fact that sony is using the 720p screen instead of the 1080p , I think they are saving a lot so they should price is somewhere around Rs 28000 to 30000 but i guess in a few months the price would eventually come near that.

    OVERALL ITS A GREAT BUY !!
