To what extent do we recommend the Xperia XZ1 Compact? We have summarized the ease of use and convenience of each point that people look at when choosing a smartphone.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Xperia XZ1 Compact

Xperia XZ1 Compact's size

The Xperia XZ1 Compact is 2.6 inches (65 mm) wide, 5.1 inches (129 mm) tall, and 0.4 inches (9.3 mm) thick. At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands. In the case of the Xperia XZ1 Compact, it weighs about 140 oz (140 g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Xperia XZ1 Compact make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

The CPU performance of Xperia XZ1 Compact

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has an extremely high processing power of 2.45GHz+1.9GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has 4GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Xperia XZ1 Compact's storage capacity

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has 32GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Xperia XZ1 Compact is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Xperia XZ1 Compact's screen

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has a 4.6 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Xperia XZ1 Compact is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The camera function of Xperia XZ1 Compact

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has a 19 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Xperia XZ1 Compact comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Xperia XZ1 Compact

The Xperia XZ1 Compact has a relatively large battery with 2700 mAh. The Xperia XZ1 Compact has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Xperia XZ1 Compact

The Xperia XZ1 Compact is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
