Sony Xperia Z3

"This is a smartphone that deserves attention. It's supremely specced in all the right places and shows that Sony does care about how people use its gadgets. And it may just be the best all-rounder you can buy." - Stuff

The Sony Xperia Z3 is the next chapter in the revolution of the Sony Xperia Smartphone range and becomes the latest flag-ship in the mobile phone series. The Xperia Z3 was created to define the difference between “good” and “excellent” – with Sony announcing at the handset’s launch that nobody should settle for the former. This flag-ship boasts a 2 day battery life, an incredible HD display, better waterproof protection and camera technology to redefine the Smartphone experience. The big step forward in the Xperia Smartphone range is the Z3’s compatibility with Sony’s PlayStation 4.

In regards to design the Sony Xperia Z3’s dimensions are 5.75 x 2.83 x 0.29 inches, with a lot of attention on the sleek 7.3mm thickness of the handset. The Xperia Z3 has a 5.2 inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 with triluminos tech and X-Reality for better contrast and boasts the brightest display among contemporary premium smartphones. The Xperia Z3 weighs in at a mere 152g.

The waterproof feature on the Sony Xperia Z2 has been improved to an IP65/68 standard so you needn't worry about missing a call when in the shower! The Xperia Z3 can last for 30 minutes in water to a depth of 1.5 metres.

The big draw of the Sony Xperia Z3, along with all previous Xperias is the camera experience, that at the time of its release is the best available on a Smartphone. The Z3 boast an incredible 20.7MP camera with a 1/2.3” ExmorRS sensor and a 25mm wide-angle Sony G Lens. In a jump from predecessors, the Xperia Z3 now records in stunning 4K video.

The Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery rocks the current Smartphone industry with this latest battery update, providing up to 2 days of battery life.

Sony have allowed compatibility between PS4 and the Sony Xperia Z3 making this the only handset compatible with the best-selling games console.
