Sony recently unveiled two of its newest handsets in the form of the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact. Both the handset are an upgrade of the previous Xperia handsets, and it shows with the specs that have been incorporated inside.
As you may expect, the new Xperia Z3 is the bigger of the two variants. The Xperia Z3 Compact, on the other hand, is just a smaller variant of the original one but nonetheless powerful. But that isn't the only difference that's noticable here.
Here's a look at the 5 basic points of difference between the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact.
The design and form is easily the most obvious difference between both the handsets. While the Xperia Z3 keeps up with others like HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy S5 with a 5.2-inch screen, the Xperia Z3 Compact comes as the perfect solution to single handed use with a 4.6-inch screen.
while both the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact pack an IPS LCD screen, the 5.2-inch model offers a Full HD 1080p resolution, which produces beautifully crisp images. The Xperia Z3 Compact, however, drops the Full HD resolution and offers a 720p screen instead
While Sony maintains its status as the only company to offer similar kinds of processors for both the original device and its slimmed down version, with a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the memory for the Compact version has been taken down from 3GB to 2GB.
While the original Xperia Z3 comes sporting a 3100mAh battery, the Z3 Compact offers a bit lowered down 2600mAh battery. However, that doesn't mean the power is anyway less.
There's no real verdict in this sense since both the handsets offer their own specs in terms of price. And although the Xperia Z3 actually looks the better choice, the smaller variant of it isn't really far behind.
