Most smaller Xperia Sony Z1 Compact experience evaluation

Launched as the flagship model mini is the practice of the many mobile phone manufacturers, you can reduce costs, can cover more consumer groups. Unfortunately Mini Edition size, also shrank in the configuration, which makes many likes the small size of the oil well tangle. If you need a smaller size flagship, Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is your only option.

Xperia Z1 Compact can be said to be the present flagship one by one small size-only configurations on the market. Compare with Xperia Z1 hardware configuration, other than the screen size resolution must shrink, Xperia Z1 flagship Compact is level. Personally, I think that everything in Xperia Z1 Compact can compete with the iPhone 5C models, of course, certainly not the so-called iPhone killers.

Design:

Xperia Z1 Compact Xperia Z1 is the name bright version, from a name you can see is continued Xperia Z1. Xperia Z1 Compact continues to use Sony's award-winning OmniBalance full balanced design, overall very Japanese taste. Unlike the Xperia Z1 is, Xperia Z1 Compact beyond the black and white, and added two more lively and youthful pink, yellow color, more pleasing young people like.

Although in appearance, Xperia Z1 Compact feels is still glass on both sides, but actually is not. Xperia Z1 Compact frontal tempered glass, and polished polycarbonate material is used on the back. Question of explosion-proof membrane, Xperia Z1 Compact front remained, but canceled on the back, makes it easier for friction compared to scratch Xperia Z1.

Xperia Z1 Compact is a name or a continuation of the overall design can be said 99% Xperia Z1, details above can be said to be the same. (It's not crap? ) Next to the SONY logo at the top of each is a front facing camera and sensor lights hidden in the receiver.

Xperia Z1 Compact design of all slots are on the left, from left to right is the mircoUSB interface, memory card slot, contact charging port and SIM card slot. Xperia Z1 Compact waterproof cover and the color of the border is more uniform, there will be no color on the Xperia Z1. And line symmetry better precision, obsessive-compulsive disorder and Virgo's oil should not wait.

The right side is all entity keys, are the landmark power button, volume buttons, as well as physical shutter key. Xperia Z1,Xperia Z1 Compact entity keys are more than small, feel more rigid. Xperia Z1 shutter button is a two-stage Compact entity, but only the size of a grain of rice, blind fuck harder to locate. Xperia Z1 Compact still has iconic lanyard hole.

Xperia Z1 Compact speakers are still at the bottom, pull the design of cavity seems to be very large, but only one-third is the sound on the left. Xperia Z1 Compact voice became slightly larger than Xperia Z1, should further avoid dropped calls may sound much smaller.

Xperia Z1 Compact edge is rounded, not feel top hand in hand. Xperia Xperia Z1 Z1 Conpact with the same design for metal frames, but compared to the Xperia Z1 box using two colors of purple design, Xperia Z1 Compact box is more uniform in appearance.

Xperia Z1 Compact using a 4.3-inch screen, measurements are 127.64.9*9.5mm, very suitable for one-handed operation. (It is not really a load of rubbish? ) And using a 4-inch screen compared to the iPhone 5C, Xperia Z1 a circle slightly larger on the Compact measurements. I personally feel feels Xperia Z1 Compact slightly plump, but feelings are not obvious.

Screen display:

Xperia Z1 Compact uses a 720P the IPS screen, Xperia Z1 much-maligned white before the change with viewing angle issues. Pictured above from left to right are Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact with the iPhone 5C. Open X-Reality for Xperia Xperia and Z1 Z1 Compact Mobile options. From a positive point of view, three screens are excellent. Two Sony machine in red is rich, while iPhone 5C are fresh.

In terms of viewing angle, tilt angle view, Xperia Z1 has begun to appear on the left of white, while the two on the right machines remained good in General.

Somewhat exaggerated point of view, Xperia white situation has seriously affected the perception of the Z1. Xperia Z1 screen in Compact viewing angle and full color performance make up for the previous Xperia Z1 short Board, so members don't have to worry about the screen.

The system UI:

So far, most of the Sony's flagship models are upgraded to Android Xperia Xperia UI based 4.4.2. New Xperia added a lot of new UI features, and interface design on more gorgeous, rich Japanese flavor. Unlock interface from the blinds to the stars, also have diffuse effects after unlock, unlock process as a whole is gorgeous.

Switch dropdown menu Tab to notify shortcut set, but can also choose to order the corresponding shortcut settings, and adjust, also joined the press jumped into the detailed function of movement.

Desktop design remained through the long, two-finger search action to achieve the corresponding function. While the new Xperia UI bar at the end of the background transparent, more beautiful.

Program drawer with a menu is not much changes, redraw the switch button, made more intuitive.

Walkman and the consolidation of more home movies application resources, such as Video and Music Umlimited Umlimited, further enhancing the overall experience. Also Walkman and movie download media information and features such as subtitles, feature more useful. Video playback using the player, you can also zoom in video viewing.

New Xperia UI redraws the status bar icon, the main direction is more concise and easy to understand. I highly recommend the new theme called Air, and its dynamic wallpaper will change as the desktop mobile, very with sense. Current Sony Xperia built-in white balance adjustment function in the machine, I personally recommend the 0/57/150 parameter, this screen will dry white.

Still have the STAMINA I personally like pattern and location based on WLAN, STAMINA mode causes standby is very powerful. WLAN based on location is convenient in the home from automatically connecting, more convenient.

New calendar and alarm clock to remind far more useful concise new Xperia UI overall direction to the more simple and clean, yet gorgeous. This evaluation using the international version of the ROM, and in certain functions and interface are different from the domestic version. Domestic version was replaced in the localization of Google services, more suitable for domestic use and State of the request. (My wonderful hands, brush International Edition I'll blather? )

Performance range:

Sony Xperia Xperia than Z1 Z1 Compact size reduces the many, but the main configuration remains as mycophenolate mofetil Dragon 800 with 2G RAM, while resolution decreased from 1080P to 720P, making load lower hardware, better game performance. Tables have the same configuration on the same resolution of the LG g-Flex, as well as comparing iPhone 5C. Runs from the theoretical data, Xperia Z1 Compact is no need to worry about its performance.

But in the actual game experience, is very good Xperia Z1 Compact. Due to the resolution from the Xperia Z1 1080P drop 720P, Xperia Z1 Compact at the games for a hardware load reduced a lot. Test using the wild racing 8, Xperia Z1 Compact full almost unchanged at 30fps, the game experience is quite good. Also compare with Xperia Z1, Xperia Z1 Compact still has certain advantages in loading speed.

Soft decoding of video is an important measure of CPU performance test project, the test project test multithreaded performance CPU, and video hardware solution is different, this is one way to test CPU general purpose computing power, and will use multicore processors. Test using 1.14.167 version of BSPlayer, video format is 1080P ref16 FPS60,Xperia Z1 Compact frame for an average of 43.

Using playback software to above video resolution video decoding in a variety of formats, other than the blank screen sound in FLV format, Xperia Z1 Compact for most major video formats supported are very good. Videos without worrying about the party. Louis Vuitton (LV) iPhone 6 Plus Case

In some of the resolutions are not case sensitive, such as extracting the files, Xperia Z1 Compact performance no performance advantage. Wild car chases with the Xperia Z1 is installed the same version 8 GPK file, using about the same time.

I thought the size gets smaller, and same hardware configuration, will make the Xperia Z1 Compact will be hot, did not think the results gratifying. Running for 15 minutes after wild Chase 8, Xperia Z1 Compact high temperature of 39 ° c or so than Xperia Z1 all the "big" screen Xiao long 800 machines around 43 ° c, with good results.

Battery life, running for 15 minutes after wild Chase 8, Xperia Z1 Compact 6% power is consumed, the results slightly better than Xperia Z1. But Xperia Xperia Z1 Compact Z1 2300mAh 3000mAh drop, if you want to play the ball or be prepared to reserve power.

Daily life, after you open the STAMINA mode, Xperia Z1 Compact standby battery life is quite powerful. According to my personal use, from 8 in the morning to go out to a home at 8 o'clock in the evening, as communication and basic Internet application, you can do a full two days. Of course, if you stand, the STAMINA mode play as possible.

Most Sony Xperia flagship models were upgraded with the system now, during the filming of the interface and is not much different from before. Still various options that can be set at the top, the function keys at the bottom.

With the highest ISO can choose to 3200, 6400 on the actual maximum or even, in extreme cases is useful. Resolution added 15 million pixel option, but it is still 16:9 8 million pixels.

Under indoor low light, compared to the iPhone 5C Xperia Z1 Compact too much better, the overall brightness too much. In the process of testing, indoor low light quality are better than iPhone 5C proofs under Xperia Z1 Compact. Taking into account the Xperia Z1 Compact with a larger sensor sizes and larger aperture, this situation is so urgent.

Filmed at night, Xperia Z1 Compact exhibit hardware advantage, crushed iPhone 5C. Xperia Z1 Compact proofs than iPhone 5C even more bright, more details. The night, Xperia Z1 Compactr focusing much higher success rate than the iPhone 5C.

In simple terms, Xperia Z1 Compact thanks to larger aperture and larger sensor sizes, has an advantage in the night shooting. With system upgrades and optimization than Xperia Z1 initially poor, night shooting already has the advantages of good experience.
