I was told to choose a new mobile phone which will serve as a gift for my college graduation. Being a fan of cutesy that I am and loving pink more than any other color in the world, I was inclined on finding a chic phone in pink!
I searched on the Internet and somehow stumbled upon the android phone SONY Xperia Z1 Compact, which is offered in 4 colors(black, pink, white and lime). And so, I started eyeing the pink Z1 Compact! I’m not what you can call a “techie” or a person who is really into gadgets or technology. I couldn’t care less about a phone’s function, but with this review, I’ll try my best to be as useful as I can be.
Z1 Compact boasts a 4.3 inches screen display, a shatter proof glass, and a dust and water proof body. I have small hands so I really prefer smaller phones rather than the bigger ones coming out lately. Some other Xperia phones(Tipo, Sola, and Miro) which were released earlier all have defective touchscreen function. Unlike these earlier releases, Z1 Compact has a very good touchscreen function, you can just easily tap/slide your fingers on its screen. The battery life is good. Of course, it runs out a little faster when you’re connected to the Internet, but it has a very good battery life when you’re not using the Internet.
This mobile phone has 16GB internal memory, and you can insert an SD card up to 64GB. I have 176 apps installed, that’s a lot and my phone is still running just fine! Since I can insert an SD card up to 64GB, I can store a lot of media files as well. The phone memory’s huge capacity and the external SD card are both very convenient.
The Z1 compact has primary and secondary cameras which are already common in new phone releases today. It has a 20.7-megapixel primary camera and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. I don’t have much complaints about the camera, since I’m not really into photography, and I don’t really take pictures that much. Even then, in my opinion, the primary camera still leaves me in awe, because it really captures well. When you zoom in a photo, it’s still detailed and not pixelated! If you will read other reviews online, you will surely be able to read about the LED flash bleeding problem of Z1 Compact. The good news is that SONY already acknowledged this problem and they stated that the defect is already corrected on newly produced Z1 Compacts. Luckily, it seems what I got is a newly produced Z1 Compact without the flash bleed defect.
My SONY Xperia Z1 Compact serves me well. Other SONY flagship phones might be better, but this is really the “chic phone” I was looking for and I’m satisfied with it. I don’t think I’m going to replace it with any other mobile phone anytime soon!
