Does size matter? Xperia XZ1 Compact specs comparison against the big boys — Galaxy S8, LG G6

2

So, Sony has just announced two of its new top-shelf smartphones and let's celebrate — the Compact series is back to bearing flagship specs! Yeah, if you recall, last year the Compacts took a small turn. Instead of being top-tier, the mini series moved to the X line with the Xperia X Compact, which was more of a midrange smartphone.

Anyway, now it's back and fans of pocketable handsets can get all the specs of a flagship in a tiny body with an easily useable 4.6-inch display. How do the Xperia XZ1 Compact's specs compare to actual flagships out there? Well, take a gander!
