In modern times, Sony Mobile is king of the compact smartphone market. Nobody really makes flagship-tier Android smartphones that are smaller than 5 inches anymore. Sony dominated because their compact devices were only smaller than their full-sized counterparts in size, not performance.
However, with the recent release of the Sony Xperia X Compact here in Malaysia, some are fairly disappointed with what the handset has to offer.
And honestly, can you really blame them? Inside the X Compact, you get a mid-tier processor, an average amount of RAM encased in a plastic outer shell.
The X Compact also ditches one of the most popular features on a Sony handset but I suppose that’s not too surprising since the smartphone it’s based on doesn’t have it either.
Then we come to the one thing the smartphone is supposed to shine at — its camera. Sony developed a brand new camera system for the X Compact but was it worth it? If you ask me, I think Sony chose the wrong basket to put all their eggs in.
