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...

Sony Xperia Z3 review: Hat trick


To say we are eager to get the Xperia Z3 out for a spin would be a massive understatement - with the race track still warm from the Compact. After all, if the Robin in Sony's IFA lineup can do that well, we can only imagine what Batman is capable of....

5.2" IPS LCD, 1080 x 1920 pixels, 424ppi, ambient light sensor ; LTE connectivity ; Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Xperia UI on top ; IP68 certified - dust and water proof up to 1.5 meter and 30 minutes ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with quad-core...

Non user-replaceable battery ; Slightly larger than most direct rivals

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 (T-Mobile)


The slender, long-lasting Sony Xperia Z3 appears iterative, but delivers one of the most roundly excellent Android experiences on T-Mobile and features exclusive PlayStation 4 game streaming capability.

Slim, refined design. Dust- and water-proof. Excellent camera. Long battery life. PS4 game streaming.

Wi-Fi could be faster. Sony and T-Mobile bloat.

Sony Xperia Z3 review: Refined design makes this Sony's most promising smartphone to date


Sony's Xperia Z3 hits all the right notes and delivers powerful performance in a beautiful, sleek design.

The Sony Xperia Z3 packs great battery life, a brilliant display, beautiful design and waterproof features. If you own a PS4, you'll also be able to play PS4 games remotely on your phone.

The UI can use updating -- all the icons just look way too big. While it may have a 20.7-megapixel camera, autofocus can be a little off, but nothing a quick tap on the screen can't fix.

The Sony Xperia Z3 is Sony's most formidable to date with a formidable display and promising features that easily give Android competition from HTC, LG and Samsung a run for their money.

Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact review


We call it battery life because it is vital. Without it, e-readers wouldn't be so popular, electric cars wouldn't threaten gas guzzlers, and smartphones would never have taken over as the primary...

Waterproof without sacrificing aesthetics ; Good looking without sacrificing ergonomics ; PS4 Remote Play finally capitalizes on Sony's PlayStation advantage ; Probably the longest-lasting Android flagship around

Camera takes some getting used to ; Optical image stabilization would have been nice to have ; Spammy Xperia Lounge notifications ; Like the iPhone 6 Plus, the Z3 is bested by a smaller model

Sony Xperia Z3 Smartphone Review


A rapid update yet again. Apparently, Sony aims to attract attention with a new top smartphone every 6 months. The user can only benefit from it: Although the innovations are small, our test proves that the Xperia Z3 is still a top smartphone.

nice materials, stylish design with rounded corners, dust and water protected, great cameras, very good connectivity, very bright display, very clear voice quality, numerous accessories are available, Remote Play with PlayStation 4, very good battery...

back side is a bit slippery, prone to fingerprints, bluish display, battery is not replaceable, low internal memory, GPS is partly inaccurate, speakers are only good average, shorter battery life under load than predecessor

Existing customers might take offense that Sony rapidly updates their products: They might just have bought the Xperia Z2 and the new model is already available, which is even better in several respects.
