Sony XPERIA Z3/Z3v Review

 

Marketed with “Demand Great” by Sony, the XPERIA Z3 is a high-end phone that has a lot of attributes that are attractive: a thin metal and glass design, an IP65/68 ruggedness rating (water and dustproof), along with Sony's best camera sensor available...

Review: Sony Xperia Z3

 

With the Xperia Z3, Sony once again makes a fantastic piece of hardware that's marred by horrible software.

Great looking hardware. Snappy processor and plenty of RAM make the Z3 a speed demon. Shoots 4K video. Waterproof up to 5 feet ; TIRED

Glass back makes it a fingerprint magnet—and a slippery one at that. I dropped and shattered mine. Finicky camera produces inconsistent photos. Stability issues aplenty. Mystifying software choices, including pointless redesigns of great stock Android...

Sony Xperia Z3 review: Superb design and capabilities that best the Apple iPhone 6

 

Sony doesn't release too many smartphones on US carriers, but T-Mobile has a real winner here with the Z3. Matthew not only tested one out, he bought his own and put aside the iPhone 6 Plus.

Sony has a limited presence in the US with most of its devices being sold either overseas or at the US Sony Store as unlocked models for AT&T and T-Mobile customers. Verizon just recently launched the Sony Xperia Z3v, which is a variation of the Z3 I...

Sony Xperia Z3v review: Verizon's spin on Sony's excellent Xperia Z3 is nearly as good

 

The Sony Xperia Z3v is a top-notch Android phone that's waterproof for up to 30 minutes, can stream games from a nearby PlayStation 4 via Remote Play, and has expandable storage.

The design is a throwback to earlier Xperia models, and not as slick as the standard Xperia Z3.

Sony's variant on the Xperia Z3 is nearly the same excellent overall phone on Verizon, albeit with a slightly dated external design.

Sony Xperia Z3v (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Xperia Z3v marks Sony's triumphant return to Verizon, offering high-end specs and features without some of the compromises of its smartphone peers.

Attractive, modern design. Waterproof. Refined software with useful tweaks. Qi wireless charging

On the thick and heavy side. Tons of bloatware

Sony's in the midst of a mobile revival, but for all of the positive critical response, the Japanese monolith seems to have fallen out of favor with major U.S. carriers as of late. The Xperia Z3v ($199.99 with contract) is the first Sony cell phone to...

Sony Xperia Z3v review

 

The Android world is jam-packed with great phones that also have great, compelling designs — the new Moto X and HTC's excellent One M8 both immediately come to mind as phones I want to look at and caress as much as I want to use. This isn't the first...

Fast performance ; Great battery life ; Good camera

Clumsy, dated design ; Lots of bloatware

Not exactly the Z3 you're looking for

It's got powerful internals, a 20-megapixel camera, and a version of Android that isn't annoying to look at—hopefully a stint at Verizon will help it reach more users.

Bright, vibrant display with customizable settings ; Water and dust proof—mostly life proof ; Front-facing stereo speakers for groovin

Camera can be a bit inconsistent depending on lighting situation

The Xperia Z3v's powerful hardware and neat bundled features are also a perfect example of what Sony is capable of when it takes its time with a product.

Sony Xperia Z3v Review

 

Over the past week we've had a look at the third in a line of Sony's "Z" devices in so many years, this one called the "Z3" when it's not carried by Verizon. This version of the Xperia Z3 goes by the name "Z3v", appropriately, as it runs on Verizon's...

As any good manufacturer does, Sony once again delivers their finest work of smartphone art in the Xperia Z3v. Each successor to the Z becomes better - and bigger. Now we've got to see about the Z3 Compact to get the slightly more pocketable...

The Z3v combines a bright and rich display with an excellent 20-MP camera, packaged in an elegant and waterproof design.

Sony Xperia Z3 review: a classy flagship with great battery life

 

When you're trying to compete in the phone-making game, there are certain challenges. On the one hand, you want to dazzle customers with innovative featu

Fantastic battery life ; High-quality finish ; Great camera

Software feels a little dated

For a phone that, initially at least, looks a lot like the one it's meant to replace the Z3 has a few tricks up its sleeve. Best of all is the standout battery life. Android photographers will love the camera too. It's easy to recommend the Z3, unless...
