Sony reveals Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone


Not sure about carriers, but they will have unlocked gsm versions as they have before.

It is a step down to 720p but I suspect it is still quite nice. Have not seen the prices differences yet.

AFAIK, they never stopped calling it that. Supposedly my Z2 tablet is "triluminos", but they baked in some added goodness and used an IPS screen. It looks amazing. I can't see them stepping backwards on this.

If you look at the Xperia Z2 phone, it is also a TRILUMINOS display, with Live Color LED. Same as on the tablet. My tablet looks great. I'm not worried.

If it only came to Verizon.......
But anyway, a mini done the right way. The only compromise is the screen.

Looks nice! Hopefully this one will support AT&T lte network. That's the only thing kept me from getting Z1 compact.

Man, this might be my next. Really solid specs in a smaller form factor. If it has a great camera (seems like spec-wise it's there) and great battery life, I'm sold. Can't wait for reviews!
