The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is a recent Sony Xperia addition that is one of the best midrange devices in the Kenyan Smartphone market. The Z1 Compact completely changed the rules of the game by having some decent flagship specs instead of being a watered down version of the Sony Xperia Z1.
The iPhone 5S is one of the best handsets on the planet. Every aspect about the device screams premium and this makes the iPhone 5S a favorite of many high-income earners in Kenya. The iPhone 5S is the first Smartphone to feature a 64 Bit CPU and Biometric Authentication (Touch ID).
That was a brief description of the gladiators in the Arena. Let’s now jump onto the actual figures. Here is a one on one comparison between the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the iPhone 5S.
