With the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact could be the pocketable phone you’ve all been waiting for. The Z3 Compact brings you the power of the flagship Z3, but with a 4.6-inch display.

That smaller display means a device that fits more naturally into the hand than the larger brother the Z3, with a body that’s 8.6mm thick and a weight of only 129g.

The Xperia Z3 design is close to that of the Z1 Compact launched in 2013, but it’s now slimmer and lighter, with an edge that Sony is calling the “liquid reflection frame”. The liquid frame holds the tempered glass front and back panels in place, for that Xperia Z design.
