Sony Xperia X Compact review: Eggs in the wrong basket

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.

Sony really need to fire their mobile division and get a new team. Nothing spectacular with a huge price.

Love the small factor but wish the x compact are 1k cheaper. Maybe I will not hesitate to buy the x compact if there were no rm849 redmi note 3 that used the same processor. Xiaomi can u please make a 4.6inch phone will u?

I feel sad for Sony. They have stopped making affordable phones like the E, T and M series so they can focus on making better high end phone. Sadly the flagship are also disappointing. Soon they better sell off like their PC business.
