While the “mini” iterations of Android flagships are generally indicative of not only a smaller form factor, but also a lowering of specifications to a more mid-range level. That certainly isn’t the case with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact though, which, despite its small stature, certainly packs a punch. With no compromise in specifications, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is a fantastic option for anyone hoping for a high-end smartphone, but without the large display sizes that you will have to choose from.
The Xperia Z1 Compact features an IP58 rating for resistance against dust and water. But while it may be well protected from the elements, accidental bumps, scratches, and drops can harm this device just like any other.
