Design and display

Clean-cut design

The Xperia Z5 Compact is the epitome of bigger not always being better. If you want a lightweight, powerful smartphone you can easily use with one hand, look no further. 

Sony’s TRILUMINOS tech

The display measures in at 4.6-inches, featuring Sony’s trademark TRILUMINOS display technology. See more colours than ever, and enjoy everything in amazing high definition. 


Most powerful camera on a compact smartphone

With 5x clear image zoom for better close-ups, a huge 23MP resolution and the fastest autofocus on the market (less than 0.1-seconds) the Z5 Compact’s camera is incredible. If that’s not enough, you can also record video in stunning 4K.

Perfect selfies

If that’s not enough, there’s also a 5MP front-facing camera with an ultra-wide angle lens so you can fit more in to your photos. And it’s not just selfies that’ll look great, video calls look amazing too. 

Under the hood

Processing power

With a powerful octa-core processor, this miniature marvel will have no problem with multitasking, so you can make the most of big games and epic films.

Big battery, small size

The Z5 Compact has a sizeable 2,700mAh battery, which is impressive for its dainty size. There’s also quick-charge technology built-in, so you can get 5.5 hours worth of usage from just a ten-minute charge.

Other features

Fingerprint sensor

The power button has a built-in fingerprint sensor, letting you to save up five prints for that extra level of security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucy from Highly recommend it I had been wondering whether to defect to Apple but decided to upgrade to the Xperia Z5 Compact. I am really thrilled with it and the transfer from my old phone was so easy and completed in a very short time. It is very fast and the screen is lovely and clear. The camera is amazing and the size is just right - big enough to read everything clearly but yet small enough to hold easily and keep in your pocket. The really big advantage is the storage - 32GB in the device memory and a further 32GB from my SD card. Very good Android phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rob s from Poor purchase This phone is less than a week old and the screen has become unresponsive three times. I had to reboot to make it work. It isn't fit for purpose. I haven't had this issue with either Samsung or HTC.
