3

It is true that the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is an amazing device and is also an exception that makes it clear to the world: it’s a mini version of a flagship mobile device that is worth purchasing.

However, does the brand new Sony Xperia Z5 Compact carry on that theme and make the users rethink of mini devices in a whole? Read on to find out which is the best.

Design of these Devices

The design of the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact is the same compared to the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. Sony has designed its own and unique OmniBalance design impression since the beginning of the Xperia Z range. It is dependent on ensuring or making sure the balance and evenness in every element of the device is assured. Due to the fact that OmniBalace was successful, new phones in this range look similar to their predecessors, coming with the same but sharp rectangular designs.

The Z5 doesn’t look or feel as amazing and of high quality like the Z3 does. Due to the fact that it doesn’t have the frosted glass effect plastic sides and colored trims, it looks and feels quite cheap. However, the Z5 has some very unique and similar designs to its predecessor such as expandable storage, waterproof body, dustproof body and includes a combination power fingerprint or button sensor as well. The internal memory of the Z5 has been proudly increased to 32 GB, which is better than the 16 GB the Z3 and other predecessors were made with.

Dimension of Both Devices

The Z5 Compact comes with the very same dimensions to the Z3 Compact. However, it is a little squared this time and has its stereo speakers moved to the top and bottom edges of the mobile phones. Both devices come featured with storage that can be expandable through MicroSD cards. This means, you can increase the storage space at any time.

Display: Z5 vs. Z3

The size displays of both devices are the same. They both have a 4.6 inch diagonal screen and similar High Definition resolution screen. HD resolution feature can be found on devices that cost less than the Z5 which was considerably reduced to $650 and this decrease happened after three days of the device being on sale. Although most people expected better screen display quality, it didn’t happen and some people are quite disappointed with this feature of the Z5. Strangely, Sony has reduced the resolution of the Z3.

Special Software and Features of Both Devices

One of the newest models comes with a unique feature in the form of the fingerprint scanner. This scanner is on the right hand side of the device. This is one feature that makes the Z5 a better option compared to the Z3. This is because the Z5 has this feature and the Z3 doesn’t have it. Also, the Z5 is designed with the latest Android Lollipop version. Although the Z3 doesn’t have this feature, it can be upgraded to get it and makes use of the UI interface.
