Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Review
The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is the smartphone that you will want if you are a fan of the Sony Xperia Z5 or the Z5 premium but you prefer something smaller. It succeeds the Sony Xperia Z3 compact and this means that it comes with a few inheritances such as the 720p HD screen and the water resistant body.
Just like its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact packs as many high end features as possible into this small frame and that’s where it gets the name from. So in essence, you can be able to get out your smart phone whenever you need to get those eye-catching moments without a problem. You also get a high-performance snapdragon processor which has the ability to shoot 4K video. All of these in a small box.
Basically, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is a few bucks cheaper than the Z5. So if you don’t mind a few compromises with the screen quality and the design, then you can go for the compact. However, there are a few issues that you will realize with time. Okay here is what the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is capable of.
There is much to like about the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact. To begin with, anyone looking for battery life would be very impressed by it. Moreover, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact does not compromise on the design. In fact, it is one of the best smartphones on the market right now in terms of battery life.
You will definitely fall in love with the fingerprint sensor. Although it’s not one of the best on the market right now, it’s doing pretty well and it will definitely be a great addition especially when android pay starts working. What’s nice about the fingerprint sensor is the positioning. It’s perfectly positioned and you don’t have to struggle to get to use it.
When it comes to design, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact doesn’t disappoint considering it is a very small phone packed with a lot of features. Consequently, it’s a bit thicker than the Sony Xperia Z5 but you will notice this only when you put the two phones side by side. However, the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact feels more comfortable in your hand than any of the other Z5 variants. Of course the water resistance body is still in place and the lack of flaps makes it an awesome experience.
There are a few things that do not basically make the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact a great phone. For instance the screen resolution was a bit of a disappointment given the price of the phone. We would have expected at least full HD rather than the outdated 720p. However, it’s also a blessing in disguise as it also means better battery life. For some people this might be more important than those extra pixels. Moreover, Sony did not consider new technologies such as wireless and fast charging which is what other manufacturers are doing. It might not be a dealbreaker but could have been good.
