The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact packs everything you'd expect from a flagship phone, but squashes it into a size small enough to use easily with one hand.

It has oodles of power, a great camera, it's waterproof and its 5-inch screen is bright and sharp. 

A supercharged small phone is something that no other Android manufacturer offers. And at £529 in the UK, $650 in the US and AU$830 in Australia, it's not badly priced either when you consider Samsung's Galaxy S9 will set you back £739 and the iPhone X starts at £999.

Narrow bezels allow the screen to stretch to the edge.

The camera takes good shots and can shoot video in 4K and super slow motion.

One-handed mode hardly seems necessary for such a wee device.

The small size of the phone makes it comfortable to hold.
