Sony Xperia Z3 Compact vs Samsung Galaxy Alpha

Which stylish smartphone should you get? The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact or Samsung Galaxy Alpha? Well, we’ve compared them to show you which one will suit you best.

Metal phones are in right now, so the Galaxy Alpha has a sleek metal frame. It’s stylish and shiny and will really help you stand out from the crowd.

The Z3 Compact, on the other hand, is made from plastic but comes in some great colours. And it’s been designed to be waterproof so you never have to worry about dropping it in a puddle.

Normally we’d expect a plastic phone to be a bit lighter than a metal one, but the Alpha is one really thin and light phone. But the Compact uses it’s extra thickness and weight to pack in a larger battery. And when it comes to battery life, the Compact might very well be the best smartphone you can buy right now.

We love the screen on the Alpha. It’s a little bigger than the Z3 Compact, but it’s the colours and brightness that stand out .

When it comes to fitness, both phones have got plenty. The Alpha has the S-Health app for tracking how far you run and cycle, as well as a heart rate monitor for checking fitness. The Sony has a unique app called LifeLog. It tracks all your activities, from walking and running to texting friends and listening to music. It’s like a digital diary.

So which will you go for? Let us know in the comments below.
