Overall,

The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact in today’s market is a unique device. It is the only high-end Android phone with a screen well below the 5 “. The 4.6” screen of the Z5 Compact Although no insanely high resolution, but it will make a few users because it is still well-read is. The color reproduction is standard or bad. The battery life is far above average, though he is less than its predecessor. The camera is the best ever put Sony in a smartphone, but the noise reduction remains a concern. All in all this is an excellent choice for anyone wanting a 5 “device simply takes too big.

It would be a good quiz question: how long the brand Xperia exists for smartphones from Sony and Sony Ericsson previously? The answer is … now more than seven years and eight months. The Xperia brand name first came to the Xperia X1, a Windows Mobile powered device that Sony Ericsson on February 11, 2008 presented. Thus, the Xperia line consists one year shorter than Apple’s iPhone series, only about one and a half years longer than the name Samsung Galaxy and two years longer than the HTC Desire line. There are now between fifty and one hundred models appeared in the Xperia line.

Despite the insistence of Sony Ericsson and later Sony’s Xperia line yet become a cash cow. Making smartphones on Android is not very much, everyone except for Samsung. Furthermore, Sony has failed to rank among the best-selling manufacturers and must now watch as competitors like LG, Huawei, Lenovo and Xiaomi off more smartphones.

In early 2013, Sony introduces its first Xperia Z and since that time has become the Z-line series for high-end models. In this review we look at the most distinctive of the three new Z5 smartphones. The Z5 Compact is a high-end Android device, as the name suggests, remarkably small.
