|Sony Xperia Z1 Compact|
When the term phablet was coined, the manufacturer's race in building bigger and bigger smartphone begun. We thought that we would never see again a flagship in a more pocket-able build until Sony announced the Xperia Z1 Compact.
The Z1 Compact sports a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen display with HD resolution powered by one of the most powerful processors to date, a 2.2GHz quad-core Krait 400 Qualcomm 800 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM.
It also inherits the same imaging capability from its bigger Z1 brother, it packs a 20.7MP shooter on the back and a 2MP camera in the front, both can record 1080p videos. Not only that, it is still an IP58 certified which means it is still water resistant and dust proof.
That being said, it is a truly flagship phone in a much smaller built which most of, if not all manufacturers had been ignored for quite some time.
