In 2013, we saw the HTC One Mini, Nexus 5, and Galaxy S4 Mini raise the bar for mobile technology, and now the tech giant ‘Sony’ announces the Xperia Z1 compact smartphone – a downsized version of its flagship Z1 smartphone. The Z1 Compact is smaller than the Z1S, but it’s not a small smartphone. Instead of the 5-inch 1080 pixel display of the full-fledged Z1S, the Z1 compact has a 4.3 inch 720 pixel display.

According to Sony, this new smartphone is more water resistant than the previous model. The company also improved on the water-sealed design by making the headphone connector waterproof too.
