Quick look at Sony Xperia X Compact – first impressions, camera, performance

After we recently presented to you Sony Xperia XZ’s capabilities, we would now like to have a look at the smallest member of the new Xperia X family. This, of course, is Xperia X Compact that has a 4.6-inch display. We have yet to publish our detailed review but before that you can read this article with our first impressions after which we shall begin our tests.

Xperia X Compact’s design is quite similar to that of Sony’s flagship smartphone – Xperia XZ. However, the metal construction has been replaced with a plastic one. We are also presented with a smooth and glossy back which does not seem to retain fingerprints, or at least this is the case with the white version. Furthermore, the specs sheet continues with a USB Type-C port and fingerprint scanner, integrated in the Power button. Exactly below the latter are the volume controls whose position is not that uncomfortable any more because the phone’s dimensions are more compact. It is there that you can find the hardware camera button which also allows you to quick launch the camera app and take photos.

Another noteworthy fact is that the phone is slightly thicker than the remaining Xperia X models but when we consider all of its dimensions, it’s not that big of an issue. What’s more, the small and compact body of Xperia X Compact holds a 2700 mAh battery.

You can expect high performance because we are dealing with a Snapdragon 650 mobile chip manufactured by Qualcomm. It features six cores split in two groups. The first one has four Cortex-A53 cores ticking at 1.4GHz, and the second one – two Cortex-A72, at 1.8 GHz. Also present is the Adreno 510 GPU and 3GB of RAM. Fortunately, you get 32 GB of internal storage and if they are not enough, you can expand via a microSD card slot. For now we can only show you the phone’s results in the Geekbench 3 (on the left) and 3DMark Ice Unlimited (on the right) benchmarks.

As it was already made clear, the phone’s display is 4.6″ and its resolution – HD. This should not disappoint you though because with this screen size the image detail is good enough. In the particular case, the pixel density is 319 ppi. Apart from this, we are met with all the popular Sony technologies meant to improve image quality – Triluminos and X-Reality, for example.

Software wise, there are now surprises. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the OS which should soon be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. In addition, Sony’s UI brings some layout changes in menus and some additional apps.

Xperia X Compact’s main camera is not much different from the one in the flagship Xperia XZ. It is again 23MP and has laser autofocus, LED flash, and a special sensor which adjusts the camera’s white balance. This time, however, the feature-rich camera menu does not offer 4K video recording. Here are a couple of test shots.
