Apart from the 4K Display wonder Xperia Z5 Premium, Sony also launched Xperia Z5 and its more manageable avatar, the Xperia Z5 Compact at IFA 2015. Both of these smartphones sport water and dust resistant body with improved omni-balance design.

The rear glass has a frosted coating on it, which is extremely resistant against smudges. The side edges are made from Aluminum and include a finger print sensor combined with the power, where your thumb will naturally move towards.

On the rear side, there is a large size 23MP camera with F2.0 wide aperture G lens, OIS and LED flash. A 5MP front camera is also present for selfies. The new camera app allows you to click full 23MP images in auto mode. The rear camera can record 4K videos too.

The Xperia Z5 compact is indeed quite compact and a bit chunky at 8.9 mm thickness. It includes a 4.6 Inch display with 720p HD resolution, which is again good enough for the display size. To transfer  same high end experience to this manageable smartphone, Sony has used the same camera hardware and chipset.

It includes a 2700 mAh battery, which should make it last the longest when compared to other members of the Z5 family. Connectivity options also remain same. If you among the minority who value compact smartphones, this is the best you can get.
