The main camera of the "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" has a capacity of 7 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB"'s battery capacity is 2600mAh, a standard level for these types of phones. Compared to other smartphones, the "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB 's size

The "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" is 64.9mm wide, 127.3mm tall, and 8.6mm 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 Z3 Compact 16GB", it weighs about 129g. 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 Z3 Compact 16GB" make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB 's screen

The "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" 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 Z3 Compact 16GB" 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 CPU performance of Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB

The processing power of the "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" is, at 2.5GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" has 2GB 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 overall operational speed of the "Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB" rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Xperia Z3 Compact 16GB 's storage capacity
