Sony Xperia X Compact review: Time-saver edition

 

Sony was the pioneer of compact-sized flagships when it first released the Xperia Z1 Compact back in the day. It packed the same flagship-level processor, the same flagship-level camera and the same flagship-level features like waterproofing, at a...

The polycarbonate body changes hue under different angles. ; True to its compact name, it's a joy to use in one hand. ; Display has great contrast and brightness, and class-leading legibility in the sun. ; 23MP shooter is unmatched for detail, has good...

Sony Xperia X Compact

 

Sony's Xperia Compact line was a cult hit a few years back thanks to its no-compromise stance on putting flagship specs in a small body. But this isn't the case with the Xperia X Compact, where compromises are evident everywhere.

Sony Xperia X Compact review: This small phone's camera will blow you away

 

The Sony Xperia X Compact packs tons of goodies into a small package.

The Sony Xperia X Compact is a small, 4.6-inch phone with a beautiful display, an excellent camera and good battery life.

Only the Japanese model is waterproof, and the fingerprint sensor is disabled in the US. There's a bit of lag when editing pictures or taking low-light photos.

Sony's Xperia X Compact is a small phone with an excellent camera, but it lacks some creature comforts, like waterproofing and, in the US, a fingerprint sensor.

Sony Xperia X Compact

 

The Sony Xperia X Compact is a sleek unlocked Android phone you can easily use with one hand, but its price is out of proportion with its size.

Small, lightweight build. Good camera. Expandable storage. Dual-band Wi-Fi and NFC.

Pricey for the specs. Not waterproof. No fingerprint scanner.

Conclusions The Sony Xperia X Compact is a capable midrange phone with a good camera, but at $500, it's priced higher than most of its competition, including our Editors' Choice for compact phones, the Apple iPhone SE. For $100 less the SE gets you a...

Sony Xperia X Compact: It's Compact, Jim, but not as we know it

 

Sony's journey away from the Xperia Z and into the Xperia X series is probably now complete with the launch of the flagship Xperia XZ and the Xperia X Compact. The Sony Xperia X Compact is over-shadowed by the devices that have come before it carrying...

Sony Xperia X Compact review

 

Just buy the Xperia Z5 Compact

Stellar design that fits in one hand ; 3GB RAM boost and USB-C are nice additions

CPU performance lacking ; Isn't waterproof ; Too expensive ; No fingerprint sensor in US

Sony's X Compact is the best-looking yet in the small range. However, the quest to attract more eyes brought about a few too many sacrifices. Compared to the Z5 Compact, it's a slightly underpowered and fragile offering.

Sony Xperia X Compact Smartphone Review

 

Compact and enduring, but no more high-end. Sony once again offers a Compact version of its flagship smartphone this year. However, the smaller model will have to make do with slower components from now on. Our review shows why this is not necessarily...

very good build quality ; good performance ; long battery runtimes in practice ; USB Type-C ; decent speakers ; good camera ; bright display ; storage expansion via microSD

sensitive glossy surfaces ; comparatively thick chassis ; only USB 2.0 ; slower than the previous models in some scenarios ; no IP certification (water, dust) anymore ; no 4K video recordings

After the review of the new Xperia X Compact, we are a little disappointed that there are no more compact and high-end Android phones. If you want to have the fastest components, you will now have to get a larger device or have a look at the...
