The stunning Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is now available on Three.

The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is available for an upfront cost of £29 on four different 24 month contract plans. For £40 a month you get all-you-can eat data and all-you-can-eat minutes, through to £34 for 600 minutes and 2GB of data.

Alternatively the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is available for £359.99 with Three’s market leading Pay As You Go rates of 3p a minute, 2p a text and 1p a MB of data.

Featuring the Z1’s amazing 20.7MP camera with Exmor RS™ sensor for higher sensitivity and decreased photographic noise, plus other features such as Superior Auto focus where it recognises up to 36 different scene types, the camera can adjust automatically to capture the perfect shot. The smaller, 4.3” HD Triluminos™ screen is also built with the latest Sony BRAVIA® technologies optimised for mobile delivering a stunning viewing experience.

Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact has the same qualities you’d expect from a digital camera and is therefore perfect for photographers or people that simply don’t want to be carrying several gadgets around with them.

“Its portability and size means that you can take the device anywhere and capture moments as they happen. So even when you are on holiday you can easily share your crystal clear pictures to Facebook immediately. Plus if you are a Three customer you can share to their heart’s content with Feel at Home*, safe in the knowledge that you won’t incur any international roaming charges.”

The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is also waterproof** and dust resistant and features a STAMINA mode to improve standby time, so it’s perfect for long haul trips, where preserving battery life is priceless.

We want to give customers a quality mobile experience and address the industry issues that frustrate them.

We were the first UK network to introduce all-you-can-eat data and offer 4G at no extra cost. We let customers roam abroad with their domestic bundle for no extra charge and do not charge for calling 0800 numbers.

We continue to look at ways of improving the experience we offer our customers.

We launched 4G in 2014 and plan to have 50 cities and 200 towns covered by 4G by December 2014. By the end of 2015 98% of the population will be able to access 4G through a combination of new sites and deploying new spectrum.
