SONY XPERIA Z3 REVIEW
Sony decided to release Xperia Z3 less than a half a year after its predecessor Xperia Z2 got released. We are definitely sure that it has something to do with the release of the iPhone 6 (September, 2014). As well as staying in the race with HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3, regarding its body design, camera quality and apps variety. Remember that these outstanding phablets were released just a few months before Xperia Z3 was.
SONY XPERIA Z3 DESIGN AND BODY
To be able to see the mighty improvements of this device let’s start with its body and design. Bearing in mind that Sony gave a new look to Xperia Z3 introducing tempered glass display, curved corners and aluminium frame, we are convinced that this is a major advance ever since the Xperia Z was first launched half a year before.
Comparing its body dimensions 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm and weight 152 g with the Xperia Z2, the Z3 is 11g lighter and a little bit slimmer than its predecessor. The IPS LCD display of 5.2 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels, and the density of 424 pixels per inch, makes this fellow one of the best phablets on the market, and indeed bigger than Galaxy S5, iPhone 6 and HTC’One (M8), but smaller than the LG G3.
What we liked about the display is the improvement regarding the reproduction of the pixels (1), and the images are way sharper and clearer which only proves that Xperia Z3 put effort in improving the quality of the image (2). Z3’s display even got better in showing a detailed image which will appear more colorful with a great contrast among colors, and also keep the authenticity of the picture (3). This would not be possible without the Triluminos display technology and X-Reality technology that reduced the noise of the pictures taken in low-light (4).
SONY XPERIA CAMERA
The features that come with this phablet are fantastic! The “Superior auto” will enable you to take pictures with automatically optimized settings; “Sound Photo” will allow you to arrange background music while viewing the picture; If you want to shoot a video or take a picture and in the same time to entitle your reaction to it, use “AR Fun”; other features are "Multi Camera", "Face in", and many more interesting sets.
Not to mention that with the 4K video recording, videos are more sharped and detailed which gives them a new authentic look. Imagine your home-made videos with 4 times better resolution!
