This is a wonderful compact 4G phone from the Sony Xperia with an immense performance. The device is packed with a 23MP primary camera making it very special for the photography lovers. Let’s check further details in this review.
The Sony Xperia X Compact is surprisingly sturdy with the plastic body and there is no creaking sound anywhere. It comes with a super glossy finish which makes it look like a ceramic and it does look pretty clean with the glossy finish. The Sony Xperia X Compact attracts fingerprints like crazy. The top and the bottom of the phone are completely flat which means it can stand up on your own.
The smartphone has a loop design. The phone feels the lot more comfortable in the hand. But it still has the Sony’s signature design which is a rectangular shape. It is really easy to use in one hand. The best part of the X compact is that it is really easy to use in one hand. And that is the point of having a compact phone. It is quite refreshing to go back to the smaller display while many large display smartphones are prevailing.
It is very nice to have a phone that can be easily reached from the top to bottom of the display with just your thumb. Going around the device you have a headphone jack at the top, USB type C port at the bottom. A sim card slot that doubles also as a micro SD card at the left. Finally on the right side, you have the power button, volume rocker and the dedicated camera button that you typically find on the Sony phone.
The dedicated camera button is super convenient because it acts as a shutter and also acts fast and it is also a direct way to go from the camera. But the volume rockers are way too downwards which feels very uncomfortable. But when using the camera it acts as a zoom in/out buttons which is very comfortable but not as a volume rockers. The X compact has a fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button. And this also not a dust and splash resistant phone either.
The Sony Xperia X Compact comes with a 4.6” Triluminos IPS LCD display with an x reality engine technology and bearing a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The screen to body ratio of the device is 69.6%.
It is supplemented with a pixel density of 319ppi which is virtuous for such a small display. It comes with a 10 touch multi-point. Scratch-resistant glass, oleophobic coating are provided.
Sony Xperia X compact is a dual sim mobile with a 4.6-inch display. The device is stuffed by Hexa-core (4x1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 & 2x1.8 GHz Cortex-A72) processor along with the Qualcomm MSM8956 Snapdragon 650 chipset. It runs on Android v6.0.1 version marshmallow and there is a planned upgrade to the Nougat v7.0.
Consisting of 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory expandable through micro SD slot up to 256GB for loading videos, music and much more. Having primary camera of 23MP camera with f/2.0, 24mm, phase detection autofocus, LED flash. Provided with 1/2.3" sensor size, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama features. It has 5MP front shooter for selfies and video calling.
Stereo speakers are available. Sensors like Fingerprint, accelerometer, gyro, proximity, barometer, compass, and color spectrum are available. This is a single sim smartphone with 4G connectivity. The battery capacity is 2700mAh.
Typing didn’t seem much of an issue either. If you are big into playing games and watching YouTube this phone may not be good. It is not going to be that much of deal breaker in watching videos as it feels congested. The stereo speakers are present at the bottom gives a sound I find it on the quite side. But the sound coming out of the phone is clean and good. But you will get a better audio experience when you plug in the earphones or headset.
The 720p works perfectly fine for a smaller 4.6-inch display. It is sharp enough that it didn’t have any issues reading the text and the screen is generally pretty good itself despite how it sound on the paper. Nice color, very good viewing angles. Surprisingly very bright making it easily viewable outdoor and in direct sunlight. Performance has not been the issue in the device as it responds faster and even runs high in games.
Its load times are the little bit longer than some games but once you open it runs very smoothly. Even on the 720p screen, the high resolution plays well. It is provided with the Sony skin on the top of the android Marshmallow. I hate to say it as a skin because it has the lot more than a skin. It comes with a lot of bloatware including the Sony’s own apps and the third party once. The front camera works pretty well for the selfies and the back camera is also good with the image stabilization software.
Sony has given a fantastic job keeping the experience clean and simple. Battery life has also been surprisingly good. And the 720p display helps a lot better on the heavy usage of gaming. Finally, this is an awesome compact phone available at a price range of 30K. For more info please check the price link available.
