• Our Sony Xperia Z3 review

    Conclusion:

    While the Z3 doesnít look like a big upgrade on paper, the brighter display and more powerful and better sounding speakers make a big difference as does the slightly smaller, more ergonomic body.

    More importantly, the speakers and display address the Z2ís biggest weakness when compared to other flagships.

    4 Howies out of 5.

    Pros:
    • Water resistant
    • Ergonomic improvements
    • Long battery life
    • Slick body
    • Separate camera shutter button



    Cons:
    • Too many extra programs
    • Camera software is obtrusive

      Nice review, Howard
      While I like reading about the flagships phones out now, it just seems to me like they are all pretty much the same with one thing or another to set them apart from each other. The same processors, nearly the same size, great screens, good batteries(they all need to be better here for the price, though some are getting it like this here Sony). Even the prices are pretty similar. It really comes down to brand loyalty, really, and for the prices you have to pay for these phones, it really isn't enough for me anymore. The days of one really innovating and standing apart are all but over unfortunately. Just my 2 cent's on this one

      Wondering if the Z3 has that factory-applied screen protector... According to Android Central Sony ditched it mid-production in the Z2.
