Sony Xperia XZ3 review: One flagship too many


Sony's Xperia XZ3 is the six-month-old XZ2 with a slightly better OLED display and an improved selfie camera. That still makes it a good-looking, high-performing flagship, but the XZ3 doesn't bring any unique or interesting updates to the table to...

Attractive design ; Top-tier performance ; Competent camera

Lacks compelling features ; Expensive ; Minor update to the XZ2

It uses multiple CPU cores for speed and reliability.

Sony Xperia XZ3 Review: Too Little, Too Soon


In the grand scheme of things, the Sony Xperia XZ3 is a serviceable premium smartphone with a gorgeous OLED display, top-tier hardware and build quality and the latest version of Android onboard. But serviceable isn't good enough when you're spending...

Beautiful OLED display ; Android Pie at launch ; Wireless charging enabled

Expensive ; Slow to charge ; Gimmicky features ; Middling cameras and average performance for the price

Sony turned around and trotted out a successor to its Xperia XZ2 just a few months after that phone came out. Unfortunately, the Xperia XZ3 is a worse deal for buyers.

Sony Xperia XZ3 hands-on: Japan's answer to the Galaxy S9


With the Sony Xperia XZ2 and its compact offshoot, Sony Mobile began a journey into the future, which now continues with the Xperia XZ3. The Ambient Flow design language was fine-tuned, and the necessary software optimizations, including the...

Sony has taken some of the criticisms of past devices, especially the XZ2, to heart. After a few hours with the Xperia XZ3, even if the software wasn't in its final version, the Xperia XZ3 made a much better overall impression than the XZ2. The 6-inch...

Sony Xperia XZ3 review: Sony is back with a bang


The Sony Xperia XZ3 is the Xperia flagship we've been waiting a very long time to see. It finally pushes design boundaries, resulting in a stunning

Stunning design ; Fantastic OLED display ; Good battery life ; Android Pie software setup ; Side Sense works well

Some camera features could be better ; Hardware will be old in a couple of months (and likely replaced y 'XZ4')

Sony Xperia XZ3 review


OLED finally arrives on an Xperia phone - and it's every bit the stunner

OLED display up there with the best of the mobile world ; enough power to run anything you can throw at it ; camera and video quality impresses

fingerprint sensor in an awkward place ; no headphone jack ; Side Sense not quite ready for prime time

Sony's best phone to date combines display, camera and performance prowess into a single desirable package. It slips down in a few minor areas, but not enough to stop it warning the full five stars.

Sony Xperia XZ3 review


A jaw-droppingly good screen on a decent smartphone

Incredibly good screen ; Feels and looks premium ; 4K HDR video is excellent

Fingerprint scanner placement is awkward ; The camera is good, not great ; New UI features stutter and misfire

The Sony Xperia XZ3’s jaw-dropping OLED screen is a huge accomplishment and sees the company leapfrog LG and Samsung with its first OLED effort. As for the rest of the phone, things are less clear-cut. A combination of a misplaced fingerprint scanner,...

Sony Xperia XZ3 review: Sony’s first OLED smartphone


Sony's first OLED smartphone has arrived, but can the Xperia XZ3 stand out amongst the flagship big-hitters?

Sony’s first OLED screen is stunning ; Swish redesign ; Android Pie from the get-go

Rather pricey ; No better than cheaper rivals

Why, then, am I not recommending Sony’s flagship? Well, £700 is asking a lot for a phone that doesn’t do anything better than its cheaper rivals. The OnePlus 6 is just as good in all departments, if not better in some, and it costs a whopping £230...

Sony Xperia XZ3 review: Hands on with Sony’s first OLED smartphone


Sony's first OLED smartphone has been officially unveiled at IFA 2018, but can the Xperia XZ3 stand out amongst the flagship big-hitters?

Alas, at the time of writing there’s no word yet on how much Sony’s flashy flagship will cost when it finally arrives on UK shores. As such, I can’t quite deliver my final verdict just yet, but the Xperia XZ3 is shaping up to be a noteworthy phone...

Sony Xperia XZ3 release date and price: All the details about Sony's next flagship phone


Sony's flagship phone, the Xperia XZ3, is expected to launch very soon – everything we know so far, including UK price and release date

The renders also show a curved edge to the screen, similar to the design of the Nokia 8 Sirocco, with chunky bezels above and below the screen – a Sony staple.
