Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Xperia J1 Compact

The camera function of Xperia J1 Compact

The Xperia J1 Compact has a 20.7 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Xperia J1 Compact comes equipped with a 2.2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Xperia J1 Compact

The Xperia J1 Compact's battery capacity is 2300mAh, a standard level for these types of phones.Compared to other smartphones, the Xperia J1 Compact has a standard battery life. It should not be a problem for normal use. However, if you spend a lot of time online or playing games, you may find the battery life a bit dissatisfying.

Xperia J1 Compact's size

The Xperia J1 Compact is 25.6 in (65 mm) wide, 50.4 in (128 mm) tall, and 3.8 in (9.7 mm) thick.At this size, a man with large hands would be able to operate it comfortably with one hand, but it may feel a bit large for a woman with small hands.In the case of the Xperia J1 Compact, it weighs about 4.9 oz (138 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

Both the size and weight of the Xperia J1 Compact make it easy to hold in your hand and are unlikely to cause any trouble when you use it normally.

Xperia J1 Compact's screen

The Xperia J1 Compact has a 4.3 inch screen.The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen of the Xperia J1 Compact is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The CPU performance of Xperia J1 Compact

The processing power of the Xperia J1 Compact is, at 2.2GHz×4(Quad core), relatively high. Its features would position it somewhere between high and mid-level among currently available smartphones, but it will be rather stress-free in terms of using most apps. Most 3D games that don't burn up too much memory should be playable to a satisfying degree for the most part. 2D games should be no problem at all.

The Xperia J1 Compact has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the Xperia J1 Compact rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

Xperia J1 Compact's storage capacity

The Xperia J1 Compact has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Xperia J1 Compact is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of Xperia J1 Compact

The Xperia J1 Compact is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
