2 reviews for Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact 32GB

  1. Vera Gray

    Advantages: Perfection in every inch. Very beautiful and hard 2.5 D glass, wonderful stereo loud speakers on the front panel, sensational quality screen and colors with perfect black. Two built-in microphones for stereo movie recording. Very good functionality and smooth operation with good system optimization. Good quality photographs and even better movies in FHD or 4K. In fact, only superlatives. Here everything works perfectly with a design that is pleasing to the eye and soul
    Disadvantages: Although 3 GB Ram does the trick, it would look nice 4 GB, Instead of 32 GB of memory – it would be good to install 128 GB there (no problems with moving large applications from obb / data) to SD without root.

    The “compact” flagship Sony phones are a very nice variation on the market where every manufacturer seems to be convinced that we want to replace televisions with smartphones. I already had several phones from this series and I am very happy, the phone is in my hand, you can use it comfortably with one hand, it is packed with functions such as a fingerprint reader, NFC, advanced camera and much more. The phone’s performance was also not affected when zooming out and is on par with other flagships. It can not be hidden that a smaller screen means less space for displaying pages, videos and applications but this is, in my opinion, a small compromise. XZ1 Compact, like other phones in this series, I recommend for people who need a device lying comfortably in their pocket, efficient when it is needed and movies and websites prefer to watch on monitors
