11 Sony Xperia Z3 Compact cases and covers that will further shield your handset

Considering today's standards, we can safely say that the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is a true “munchkin” by size, but we can't use the same word compound for its feature set and spec sheet, which allow it to easily stand up to most of the "bigger" rivals out there. What's more, the device recently went all the way to the top of our battery life chart, trumping each and every smartphone we've tested and leaving its bigger peer, the Xperia Z3, on the second spot in the battery life hall of fame.

That said, such a compelling "mini" beast surely needs some protection from the outside world - we all know that the Z3 Compact is dust- and water-resistant, but this doesn't mean that you have to deliberately gamble with Lady Luck and treat the device like there's no tomorrow. That's why you might want to opt for the better "insurance" a protective case provides and put your brand new Xperia Z3 Compact in such an accessory right after you've bought it.

The Sony Xperia Z3 might have been treated to a larger array of available cases and covers, but we simply can't neglect the Xperia Z3 Compact and go through some of the more notable protective cases and covers for Sony's newest mini-powerhouse.

Done yet?  Well, while we are talking about Sony's newest devices, why don't you go ahead and check out some of the available cases for the Sony Xperia Z3 as well?

So am I, and so do I. Barely bigger than the iPhone 5, but with a significantly bigger screen, stereo front speakers, waterproof, and 3-4x the battery life of an iPhone. But the sites will probably give the POTY awards to the Note 4 or iPhone 6, even though the Note 4 is just more of the same (but improved), and although the iPhone 6 is a big upgrade for Apple fans, it's nothing Android users haven't had for years.

I have one - along with the Terrapin gel case, and I can still use the magnetic dock too.

I've had mine for almost a week now and it's a great phone. I've had the original Galaxy Note for years and i wanted to switch down to a smaller phone, and this came at just the right time. I need to buy a case for it as it's one 'slippery sucker', I rested it on the corner of my bathroom sink and it slid off onto the hard tiled floor (it did chip the glass very slightly); it is an extremely smooth phone so make sure you get a case. It's looks great though and is fast as ****, well at least compared to my dying Note. 9 covers? Which one to get?

Just got the z3c today and I think it's a great case so far after a couple of hours use. I've been looking for a case or two. I found a Rearth Ringke case on eBay that should be here in a few days. I think I'll pick up one of those Case-Mate tough cases since I've had good luck with them in the past.
