Sony Xperia X Compact Pros & Cons Review

A sidekick model (specs-wise) to the flagship Xperia XZ during the IFA 2016 in Berlin, the Sony Xperia X Compact is marred by a couple more cons, but it does pack a few flagship-caliber pros of its own.

Unlike several other upmarket Xperia models, which rock Full HD displays, the X Compact settles for a 4.6-inch HD-720p-only screen , potentially giving it a hard time versus comparable devices from other brands. It does, however, mimic the XZ's sophisticated 23-megapixel camera with triple image sensing and hybrid autofocus , although it drops the 4K video-recording option .

As for the remainder of its features, the X Compact runs on a dual-cluster hexa-core (dual 1.8GHz + quad 1.4GHz) Snapdragon 650 CPU aided by a 3GB RAM , with a fingerprint sensor leading the security department. Additionally, it comes with 32GB of memory with an up-to-256GB microSD support that we rarely see in the high-end market (as of August 2016). Topping off the X Compact's mix of pros and cons are Sony's signature PS4 Remote Play , a 2700mAh battery with Qnovo Adaptive Charging , and a 5-megapixel sub-camera.

In essence, the X Compact is an Xperia that offers flagship-class imaging and performance for high-end phone hunters who find 5-inch displays too big.
