Sony Xperia Z3 Mobile
Waterproof Design Smartphone
Xperia Z3 Compact is the smartphone designed to enhance your life. And life isn’t lived inside. With the highest waterproof rating*, Xperia Z3 Compact lets you answer calls in the rain or take pictures in the pool. Here’s more about the waterproof design smartphone that lets you do more.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact ($529.99) is one of a kind: It’s the only small premium Android phone on the market. With the iPhone 6 selling millions of units, it’s shocking that Android manufacturers aren’t offering same-size alternatives. The Z3 Compact is all we get. And while it’s an excellent phone, it’s not quite a slam dunk because of its heavy-handed Android skin, camera troubles, and price.
Let’s start with the primary assumption. There are those of us who like to use our Android phones in one hand. If that’s not you, that’s okay—there’s more than one phone for you out there. But I walk down the street a lot. I’m holding a kid’s hand and using Maps to figure out where we’re going. I’m holding a coffee and looking at my Feedly. I’m holding onto a subway pole and playing the latest Kemco game. I don’t think I’m the only one.

It’s been understood for the past few years that many people have trouble using devices wider than about 2.8 inches without repositioning them in their hands. That’s just about the size of thumbs. I did an amateur study a few years ago with the 2.67-inch Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and LG followed up when it launched the LG G2 by saying it had done a larger study. That’s why the 2.57-inch-wide 2013 Moto X became a cult device for a certain group of one-handed phone aficionados.
