Bottom Line

Sony’s Xperia Z5 Compact target’s smartphone users looking for a premium phone in a compact frame.

The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is a late 2015 4.6-inch smartphone praised for its premium design, fast performance, and compact design. It is a smaller version of its sibling, the Xperia Z5; featuring the same high-end specs but on a reduced frame. Blazing through tasks is its MO, and taking great pictures all day is its favorite pass time. Users also loved how easy it is to use in one hand, where reaching any corner of the screen does not require the use of your other hand. However, while the reduced screen size is welcomed by most, the reduced resolution is a bit offputting. The screen just isn’t as dazzling as on the Z5 and Z5 Premium.

    By squashing powerful specs into a smaller, water-resistant body, the Z5 Compact earns the title of best "mini" Android phone.

    Sony's new small form phone is the hidden gem of the Xperia Z5 range - it's just a shame there isn't a Full HD screen.
