Design and display

Compact design

Extra slim and with a more pocket-friendly size, the Xperia XZ1 Compact is stylishly simple and fits perfectly in your hand. The smartphone is available in a range of colours, including silver, exclusively available from Carphone Warehouse.  

Rich display

Whether you’re flipping through photos, browsing the web or watching videos, the stunning 4.6-inch HD display will make everything look crisp and clear. It uses the same technology Sony puts into its BRAVIA TVs, so you know you’re in good hands. 


Smart camera

The XZ1 Compact’s 19MP camera captures highly-detailed shots, and there’s a range of great features to make them look even better. The unique Autofocus burst mode, for example, follows your subject as they move, making sure you always get the perfect shot, no matter what.  


If that’s not enough, you can also capture incredible slow-mo video at 960 frames per second (fps), letting you see everyday things in a brand new light. 

Fit more into your selfies

The 8MP wide-angle selfie camera captures high-resolution photos at either 80 or 120-degrees, so you can leave the selfie stick at home and still get the whole gang in the frame.  

Under the hood

Top-level performance

The top-line octa-core processor and 4GB RAM means the XZ1 Compact was certainly built with multitasking in mind. You’ll be able to run several apps at the same time without any lag, and you’ll not have any trouble with storage space for them all, with 32GB as standard. 

Lasting battery

Despite the powerful processor and vivid display, the Xperia XZ1 Compact has amazing battery life, with a 2,700mAh cell. That means you can have a busy day of phone calls, texts and web browsing, and still have enough power for reading, listening to music or game playing on your way home.

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little phone Had for around 1 month now. Bought in discount as sim free. Was amazing how crisp the screen is seeing as it's not 1080p. Battery still going strong after full day use still had around 30-40 at charge time each night. After much research def the best small screen phone on the market

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High Specification but screen very easily damaged. Phone was a pleasure to use until the screen cracked mysteriously overnight. The phone was in the Samsung flip cover case and on charge. Supplier and manufacturer deny responsibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flagship phone in a compact body I wanted a new phone but didn't want to go supersize as is the norm now. This phone blew me away. It's super fast, updates apps lightning quick and the battery life is phenomenal. The display is super sharp. Making the display 720p was genius as in a phone of this size there is no discernable difference in quality but you get much better battery life. Plus the excellent camera you expect from Sony and the latest Android 8!
