Xperia Z3 Compact vs One M8 (Video)

In terms of size alone, it would stand to reason the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is a better match for HTC’s One mini 2 and the full-sized Xperia Z3 is better suited for a comparison with the One M8. The latter may still be true, but the Xperia Z3 Compact is actually strikingly similar to the One M8, at least on the inside.

Both phones have front-firing audio, similar chipsets, the same RAM, similar storage options, the same battery capacity, and most of the same connectivity options. The One M8 does have infrared and the Z3 Compact has water resistance not found on the One M8. Otherwise, it’s level pegging and boils down to design preference, software, and user experience.

Which is the better buy? Which phone is better for the average user? Watch the below Xperia Z3 Compact vs HTC One M8 comparison video below to see for yourself!
