Sony Xperia Z3 Compact size comparison stacks up Sony's mini phone against its mini rivals

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact size comparison stacks up Sony's mini phone against its mini rivals
Several weeks ago, we conducted a poll where we asked you to vote for a favorite "mini" Android phone. Most of the votes were in favor of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, which was hardly as surprise given the handset's clear advantages over its pocket-friendly competitors. Its premium construction, its water-resistant design, and its top-notch hardware specs are only some of the highlights that put this phone ahead of Androids of the same caliber. Having this in mind, our expectations for its successor, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, are set pretty high.

Speaking of the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, spicy bits of information about it have been leaking for a while now. Photos exposing the phone from all angles have already surfaced, and its exact proportions are now known. That's all we needed to put together this visualization of what the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact may look like next to other popular "mini" smartphones. 

Clearly, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact will live up to its name. It will be a pocket-friendly handset and won't be much bigger than an iPhone 5s – impressive knowing that Sony's "mini" phone will sport a 4.5-inch display. Alternatives like the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, HTC One mini 2, and the LG G3 s, have a noticeably larger footprint. Also, it is interesting to know that the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact will have the width and height of its predecessor, which had a slightly smaller, 4.3-inch screen at its front. The two will differ in thickness, however, as the new model is likely to be under 0.35 inches (9 mm) thin.
 
Sony is expected to announce the Xperia Z3 Compact at IFA 2014, alongside its new flagship, the Xperia Z3. Check out our rumor round-up for more details on what the two smartphones will have to offer.
