The smartphone comes in a matte-white box. Apart from it, there are: charger, USB-cable, user manual and warranty card. Sony Xperia Z3 compact represents the style segment and trends of Z-series. This time to the black and white hulls added pink and green (very similar to mint).

Housing of the smartphone rectangular, slightly rounded corners for ease of use. The entire front panel is covered with a protective glass. Above the display is sensors and LED (now it is not integrated into the speaker, and represented by a separate light), in the middle – one of the stereo speakers, to the right – the front camera lens. Below the display is the second stereo speaker.

On the right side is a round aluminum power button underneath (midway) – adjust the volume at the bottom – the camera. On the left top is the live micro-USB connector and a slot for microSD memory cards under tight cap, below – Connector for docking station, just below – the nano-SIM card slot with its plug. The card can be inserted easily.

At the top end – headphone jack at the bottom – eyelet and microphone. The rear panel is also covered with glass Dragontrail. And there are main camera lens (at the level of the body), and with LED flash, below – icon NFC, underneath the logo Sony, at the very bottom – XPERIA. And yes there is no access to the battery.

Narrow frame on each side of the display (3 mm) allow you to conveniently hold a smartphone and manage it with one hand, and the top and bottom (10 and 11 mm) – to find room for it in any standard pocket. Even when using the camera, you don’t need to use your other hand.

Location of volume and power buttons next complicates the creation of screen shots, but for them there is an item in the menu to turn it off. Different in appearance and texture of a button – a long-standing feature of smartphones Sony and very convenient: they are always easy to find and difficult to mix.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact proves good to be in design but it is standard, and we hope to see some experiment in designing of upcoming Sony Xperia Z5 compact.
