Surprisingly, there isn’t much between the Z5 and Z5 Compact in terms of quality, capabilities and price, only the size of each device, think of the Compact as the baby brother of the Sony family.
The phones are manufactured with a stylish and tough glass front and back body, with added plastic protection on the corners, so the phone never comes into direct contact with a surface, protecting that precious glass. A nifty add on by Sony, and available in a range of 5 stylish colours, they are really appealing to the mass market with this new device.

With memory cards available up to 128GB on the market, you can blitz the competition away and never worry about deleting precious photos to simply do a software update.
