Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact review: the triumphant return of the compact – Hardware reviews


Last year, Sony experimented with its compact middle-class smartphone, the Xperia X Compact, and now it returns with the new Xperia XZ1 Compact as its 2017 contribution to the compact flagship smartphone world. Will Sony make a comeback in 2017 or is the Xperia XZ1 Compact likely to flop?

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact release date and price

The IFA has always been an important event for Sony since the launch of the Xperia Z3 Compact in 2014. Each subsequent year, Sony has launched a compact flagship smartphone at IFA. Unfortunately though, fans were disappointed with Sony Mobile last year because its small and handy smartphone with a 4.6-inch display, the Xperia X Compact, was delivered with middle class hardware instead of the usual high-end hardware from the top smartphones in the Xperia line.

So in 2017, Sony Mobile is bringing us the Xperia XZ1 Compact, going back to its roots with the compact Xperia smartphones. The convenient housing contains almost the same hardware as in the top Xperia model, the XZ Premium. The more expensive and more powerful hardware of the XZ1 Compact is also reflected in the pricing though. The Xperia X Compact launched in 2016 at $500, so we can expect the price of the Xperia XZ1 Compact to rise to $600 or so.
