Bigger Isn’t Always Better
When it comes to smartphone technology, the trend is to get bigger and bigger with each generation of phone. For example, the original iPhone spanned 4.5 inches by 2.4 inches. Fast forward to the iPhone 7, and it is 5.44 inches by 2.64 inches, while Apple’s phablet, the iPhone 7 Plus, is a massive 6.23 inches by 3.07 inches. But, for some smartphone users, bigger isn’t always better. They want to be able to comfortably hold their phone in one hand, and yes, navigate that phone one-handed. To fill that gap in the market, Sony released its Xperia Z1 Compact. So, how does this so-called compact phone measure up? Well, it’s not as small as the first generation iPhone, that’s for sure. Standing tall at 5 inches by 2.56 inches, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is only slightly smaller than the iPhone 7. But, it can comfortably be used one-handed – and it has a whole heap of neat features. First up, its processor. With its quad-core processor, this phone is seriously fast. What about its display? With its smaller size, the Z1 Compact obviously needs a smaller screen. However, its 4.3-inch display features 720x1,280 pixels, making it perfectly watchable. Oh and it also happens to be waterproof, and can hang out under water for up to 30 minutes up to a depth of one metre. Add to that an excellent 20 megapixel camera, beautiful design quality and a fantastic user interface, and this is one compact phone to rival the big boys.
