World's best battery performance in a premium compact smartphone
Did you know your current phone is draining battery right now? Even though you're not using it, all those apps may still be running in the background. Battery STAMINA Mode recognises when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want – conserving every precious bit of power from that mega 2300 mAH battery. As soon as you wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
Smart, sleek and waterproof*
Underwater selfies just got easier. Xperia™ Z1 Compact takes pictures in up to 1.5 metres of freshwater for up to 30 minutes. And with its solid aluminium frame, it's ready for whatever else life throws at it. OmniBalance design means balance and symmetry in all directions, so your smartphone nestles perfectly in the palm of your hand. Durable tempered glass reflects the world around you, so when you're really into that game or movie the hardware virtually disappears. A magnetic socket and no fiddling with USB caps means that even charging is smooth and comfortable. And due to its IP55/IP58 rating, this slim and sleek smartphone is both waterproof* and dust resistant – right down to the headphone jack. Xperia™ Z1 Compact is as tough as it is smart.
Transfer makes the move seamless and painless
Moving over from a different smartphone? There's no reason why you can't bring all your stuff with you. Xperia™ Transfer moves your contacts, messages, music, photos, videos and more from iOS and Android in one seamless and worry-free transition, even without a computer.
World's best camera in a compact smartphone**
When you put Sony's industry leading compact digital camera technology in a compact smartphone the results are predictably amazing. The large 1/2.3" 20.7 MP Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor is so highly sensitive it's used in Sony's Cyber-shot™ digital still cameras. The light-sensitive, 27mm wide-angle, award-winning G Lens with bright F2.0 captures more light in dark conditions. The sensitive ISO 6400 enables incredibly clear low-light pictures without sacrificing detail. The high pixel resolution, aspherical lens and noise-reducing BIONZ™ for mobile super resolution technology enables zoom without quality loss — just like an optical zoom, while the high shutter speed prevents any risk of blurry footage. Images are delivered with super sharpness, clarity and brightness — every time.
Display so good you'll feel like you’re there
The 4.3" TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile with X-Reality™ for mobile picture engine (1280 x 720 HD resolution) reduces noise, enriches colours and delivers bright pictures with razor-sharp details. But it doesn't stop there. The Xperia™ Z1 Compact's Intelligent Super Resolution technology finds and reproduces missing pixels, displaying incredibly crisp pictures, free of jagged edges.
Snapdragon gives you super power
Forget load time. Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 Quad-core 2.2 GHz processor gives you super-fast performance and unparalleled graphics. Xperia™ Z1 Compact supports super-fast LTE networks, giving you entertainment anytime and anywhere. So stream your favourite YouTube clips and download the latest podcasts and don't worry about running out of juice; the Battery STAMINA Mode means you can just keep on watching.
