Powerful, yet tiny - Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact size-compared to Xperia XZ1, LG G6, Galaxy S8, and more

It still befuddles us why Sony is the only Android smartphone manufacturer who caters to the compact handset market. While any other handset maker is happy to sling out 5.3", 5.5", and even 5.7" screens, they still forget that there are users out there that like their phone to be easy to pocket and easy to wield with one hand. Sure, it's a diminishing amount of people, but their money is still good, right?

And wanting a small smartphone does not make you less of a poweruser — you may still want powerful hardware and a great camera. Who doesn't? Apple got that and it made the iPhone SE. Sony gets that and it keeps its Compact line going. With all that said, let's take a quick look at how the new Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact compares in size next to its big brother — the Xperia XZ1 —, the aforementioned iPhone SE, and the many other contemporary Android flagships, which have the same hardware as this little scoundrel!

It still befuddles me how Apple makes the iPhone SE with a sub HD display. Yet Sony is making a small smartphone with at least a HD display.

After a series of phone have screens larger than 5 inches (Motorola's phones and Nexus 6P). The phone feels very refreshing in the hands and surprisingly is quite comfortable to hold as well. The battery life is quite good as well. I wish the phone had come with OIS and Sony could have done with Bloatware. Surprisingly Sony branded apps can be uninstalled but not Facebook, Amazon's apps

With 4.6" screen and 70% screen to body ratio is not small at all.
