Sony Xperia Z5 Compact – Design and finishing
The Z5 Compact resembles the rest of the range Z5 in the hardware, the design is fundamentally different. The aluminum frame is reserved for the two larger models, the Z5 and Z5 Premium, the Compact must comformarse with a plastic frame that this time is not clear. Its rear glass ceases to shine of the previous editions thanks to its matte finish that not highlight the mark of our fingers.
Compared Xperia Z3 Compact (127.3 x 64.9 x 8.64 mm), the Z5 Compact (127 x 65 x 9 mm) increased in weight subtly adding 10 g to 138 g placed in. The weight of the terminal gives an impression of quality desired effect probably helps not scare us with the price.
The handling of the device is generally good. Using his left hand is easier because I can press buttons on the right side with the little and ring fingers, for example increase or decrease the call volume. Use right hand becomes more complicated because I have to access all the buttons with your thumb and placed a little below the natural position of the finger.
The friction of the terminal is quite low, especially if you only touch the sides covered with glass. A protective sheath can be a good option to avoid unwanted slippage.
With respect to Z3 Compact, front camera and proximity sensor have changed places. On both sides of the screen in the frame edge. The slots through which the sound comes out are so subtle that almost not appreciated at first glance.
The main difference with most of the flagships is the compact size of 4.6 inches, which makes it suitable for all budgets and any hand size. We are facing almost the only compact high-end smartphone market and can satisfy lovers of smartphones less than 5 inches.
Like all devices in the Xperia Z the Z5 Compact series is also waterproof and dust certification IP65 / 68. But when the device or touch screen or digital fingerprint sensor gets wet work.
Sony Xperia Z5 Compact – Screen
Xperia screen Z5 Compact has a resolution of 720p HD, like the Z3 Compact but below the Full HD Z5. Its battery and RAM are also lower. Returning to the screen, the pixel density is 319 dpi, enough to stand up to Apple iPhone 6 which has a pixel density of 326 ppi. The quality is exceptional even in this resolution with the correct color, saturation, brightness above average and with good viewing angles, even in the sun, thanks to its LCD screen.
