31 January 2014

Tech2
8 March 2014
  • Summary: At Rs 36,990, the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is nearly the same price as the Xperia Z1 , which makes it a bit too expensive. Other than the smaller form factor, there’s no reason to buy this over the Z1, which has a higher resolution display and a bigger battery.
