Best of the Small Smartphones: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact
Considering the push toward phablet-sized devices, Sony made a real case for the ongoing popularity of small smartphones when it unveiled the Xperia Z1 Compact at CES 2014, bringing home an armload of awards in the process.
One of the reasons for the excitement around the Xperia Z1 Compact is that, unlike some other small smartphones, the device doesn’t feel as though Sony is offering a diluted experience.
The Xperia Z1 Compact is waterproof, and features a range of available colors. It offers a powerful 20.7 MP Exmor image sensor in its camera, a quad-core CPU, 18 hours of talk-time, and Android KitKat. And its 4.3-inch HD display is one of the best, thanks to use of Sony’s Triluminos and X-Reality mobile technology.
