Sony Xperia Z3 Compact few months later…

It’s been 6 months now since I bought Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, so it’s perfect time to share some thoughts about it – maybe you’re considering to buy it. It’s probably very affordable now.

Let me tell you my verdict at the beginning – yes I would buy it again. It’s a great peace of tech packed in a small container.

Sony Z3 Compact


The first reason I bought the Compact version is that although it’s smaller – it’s still as powerful as the regular Z3. The biggest changes are in the screen size, apart from that it’s the same peace of tech. I wanted a smartphone with great performance but not as big as 5 inches.


Battery life. What Sony says is actually true the battery life is outstanding. Maybe not 2 days when you use it actively, but 1,5 to 2 days. I’m very pleased with the 50% battery after one day – and I’m not even using stamina mode.


Waterproof. Yes it actually was one of the requirements – I tried it – it works. One of the test I did was to jump into he pool with the phone recording and swim a length. The phone survived this test and it works fine ever since.

Those are the three main reasons I decided to buy Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. I don’t regret it coz I also paid only 249 Ł for it. A bargain!
