Today’s Deal is on a great phone that I reviewed a few months ago. The Sony Xperia X Compact has a lot of punch in a little package and right now, it is on sale for $379 at Amazon. Normally this 4.6″ phone is $499, so this is a healthy amount of savings. It is powered by the Snapdragon 650 hexa-core processor. It has four 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 cores & two 1.8 GHz Cortex-A72 cores. The processor is coupled with the Adreno 510 GPU which provides good graphics performance. The X Compact has 3GB of RAM onboard and has 32GB of built-in storage. That storage can be expanded up to an additional 256GB thanks to the Micro SD slot that is built into the SIM tray of the phone.
Display wise, the Xperia X Compact has a 4.6″ IPS LCD display that renders at 720 x 1280. That gives you 319 ppi which is low compared to other devices out there. I caution readers to consider that this device has a much smaller display so 319 ppi is actually very comfortable on this screen size. Indeed for comparison, the iPhone 6 had 329 ppi so we aren’t talking about a massive difference from even larger devices. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.
