Fancy getting your hands on a white Sony Xperia Z3 Compact? We've got one to give away, and it'll be with our winner before Santa comes down the chimney...


The Xperia Z3 Compact from Sony offers huge power and top notch specs in a pocketable chassis, and it’s one of the best-reviewed Android handsets this year. Want one? We’ve got a white Z3 Compact to give away to one lucky winner.

And what’s more, our winner will get theirs in time for Christmas, so it’ll be in their pocket before Santa’s in their chimney. To find out how to enter, and why the Xperia Z3 Compact deserves a spot on your mobile wishlist, read on…


The Xperia Z3 Compact from Sony crams market leading tech into a phone with palm-friendly 4.6-inch display. That display boasts a stunning 720 x 1280 pixel resolution alongside Sony’s TRILUMINOS tech, which means everything from games, to photos, to movies look crystal clear and bright.

Round the back there’s a 20.7-Megapixel camera that benefits from Sony’s many years of camera knowhow – it takes brilliant shots day or night, and can shoot video in 1080p HD at 60 frames per second. And, to help the Z3 survive the Great British Winter, the whole thing’s wrapped up in a waterproof seal that means it’ll withstand dunks of over one metre for up to 30 minutes.


All told? It’s a stunning little package, which is we’re really pleased to have a white Z3 Compact to give away – it means that you could still have a white Christmas this year, even if it doesn’t snow!
