Sony Xperia Ace: a return of compact mobile, at least in Japan

Sony Xperia Ace: a return of compact mobile, at least in Japan

By  Zim Watson 2019-05-20 1948 0

This 2019 Sony has only presented four models: the Sony Xperia 1, the Sony Xperia 10, the Xperia 10 Plus and the Xperia L3, all with screens starting at 5.7 inches. It seemed that the dream of compact mobiles was over, but not. At least not in Japan, where the company has launched the new Sony Xperia Ace, with a 5-inch screen.

But unlike the Xperia XZ Compact of the past, this Sony Xperia Ace is a mid-range mobile with Snapdragon 630 and a price at the exchange rate of 395 euros, half of what it costs there the Sony Xperia 1, which has been presented at the same time.

"Small" in Japan

Phones with screens of five inches or less are absolutely the exception in recent years, although we have seen before that neither Sony follows the conventions nor do they in their country of origin where, for example, Samsung continues to launch every year its model with shell format.

In this Sony Xperia Ace the screen is just that, five inches and is accompanied by generous margins at the top and bottom. Even so, the total height of the terminal is 140 millimeters and the width is only 67 mm. It is one of the few new terminals that can be operated comfortably with one hand. The thickness, by the way, is somewhat plump at 9.3 mm.

The design is a bit from another era, but the specifications are updated to what is expected of a mid-range, with Snapdragon 630 processor and 4 GB of RAM. Storage is acceptable, with 64 GB expandable via a microSD card. What is a little shorter is in the battery, which is only 2,700 mAh.

In the field of photography, the Sony Xperia Ace is again a little free, because in a price range in which others include two or three lenses, Sony includes a single lens front and back. We do not have much data from the camera for selfies, except that it is 8 MP with a viewing angle of 120 degrees, but the rear 12 MP has an aperture of f/1.8, hybrid optical stabilization and Exmor R sensor.

Sony Xperia Ace versions and prices

The Sony Xperia Ace has been introduced in Japan along with the Sony Xperia 1. There it will be sold in a single version with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in the colors black, white and purple. Its price is 48,600 yen, the equivalent of 395 euros right now. This model does not exist at the moment in the rest of the globe, but if we find out otherwise, we will update this entry.
