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.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 is suitable for almost any task. The device takes good photos and has solid system performance. Our test device also handles complex apps and games well too. The one-handed mode is hit or miss, particularly as we frequently...

Sony Xperia XZ3 Review


Our Sony Xperia XZ3 review takes a look at Sony's first phone with an OLED screen, a true premium flagship priced to fight with the biggest names in the game, but can it stand its ground?

Design looks very stylish and refined ; Beautiful OLED screen ; Powerful, crisp dual loudspeakers ; Impressively clear call quality ; Support for wireless charging; water protection

Mediocre battery life ; Side Sense fires up randomly and is better left turned off ; Pricey at $900 ; 64GB of storage is less than what competitors at the same price offer

Sony Xperia XZ3 review: OLED screen marks a return to form Review | ZDNet


A superb 6-inch OLED screen and Android 9 are the highlights of this flagship-class handset, although it's matched by less expensive rivals.

Superb 6-inch OLED screen ; Ships with Android 9 (Pie) ; Strong performance

Side Sense side-tapping controls are erratic ; Chassis is slippy to hold

Sony Xperia XZ3 Review


The amount of choice in the smartphone market at the very moment is very broad. There’s something to suit a wide variety of budgets, with the Sony Xperia XZ3 slotting fairly squarely into the mid-range section of the market.

Sony Xperia XZ3 review: a great phone, except for one thing | AndroidPIT


With the new Xperia XZ3, Sony is finally entering the battle for the top alternative smartphone. An OLED panel, fresh software and an optimized design should finally get Sony back into the game. In this review, we'll find out whether it has been...

Sony has taken into account the criticism it received on its XZ2. The large 6-inch OLED display makes it a smartphone well suited for multimedia content, i. e. to watch videos in high definition but also for gamers thanks to powerful hardware. The...

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.
