The Sony WM-10 was the smallest casette-playing Walkman, the Sony HX80 is the smallest camera with 30x optical zoom, the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is the smallest Android with Snapdragon 845. What can we say, the company loves its petite powerhouses.
But is the Xperia XZ2 the better phone? It has a few things going for it, besides the bigger screen. It has a slightly bigger battery, for one, about 300mAh more. Plus, only the big one has wireless charging (Sonyís wireless charger can do the respectable 9W).
And while itís not standard, thereís a version of the big XZ2 with 6GB of RAM while the Compact sticks to 4GB. Even the fastest chipset canít get much done while itís waiting on the flash storage for an app that was booted out of RAM.
Both phones have stereo speakers, but thereís room for the Dynamic Vibration System only in the big model. It enhances music, videos and games by pulsing a large vibration motor in tune with the sound.
The Xperia XZ2 Compact comes with a matte finish. The looks are a personal preference, but on the practical side, itís less slippery than the glossy finish of the big phone.
And if the choice between the two seems too easy, letís look at the price. The XZ2 Compact is Ä200/£130 cheaper than the big Xperia XZ2, which costs Ä800;£700. With that, we invite you to our virtual voting booth:
