Sony Xperia Z3

 

Update 22/06/2015: The Sony Xperia Z3 has been with us for nine months, but it is still the formidable flagship we once knew? When it comes to the performance, our Z3 is still running power-hungry apps without issue, and the camera is as good as ever....

Sharp, vibrant display ; Massive battery life ; Slick overall performance ; Hi-Res Audio support

Still some overheating issues ; No PS4 Remote Play yet ; Too much Sony bloatware

Sony Xperia Z3+ review: Sony phones in another incremental upgrade to its flagship line

 

More of the same from Sony – but is that a bad thing?

Slimmer build ; Great media options ; More power

Only incremental upgrades ; Loads of pre-installs ; Disappointing battery

Sony Xperia Z3 review

 

Best smartphone 5in+, Awards 2014. An outstanding all-rounder that really takes the fight to its big Android rivals

Much improved design Outstanding battery life Strong music and video performance Waterproof High-res music support Great camera

Audio could go louder Camera auto mode is hit and miss Still a lot of Sony bloatware

The Sony Z3 is every bit the flagship handset that Sony wants it to be, looking the part with its improved design, and offering just enough innovation and new additions across the board so that the Z2’s short lifespan hasn’t been in vain (the Z3 was...

Sony Xperia Z3 review: Third time's a charm

 

Sony has revised and updated its flagship smartphone more times than any rival in recent years, with the Xperia Z3 model arriving just six months after the previous Z2 hit the shelves. Having criticised the earlier Xperia Z1 and the Z2 models, we feel...

Battery life, great build, waterproofing, camera performance, powerful

Sony bloatware, still a little tall, design could be a little more seamless

Having criticised the earlier Xperia Z1 and the Z2 models, we feel like Sony has made the right moves in its latest handset. The Z3 gives you the design, the power, the display, the camera and importantly, the battery life. It's the flagship device...

Sony Xperia Z3 review

 

Another Xperia smartphone so soon? Who cares when the Z3 is this good...

Sleeker, lighter build ; Day and a half battery life ; Takes stunning pictures ; Water resistant ; Supports hi-res audio files

Default white balance is off ; Sony pushes its subscription services ; Camera's auto mode isn't 100% reliable ; PS4 Remote Play isn't ready yet

Refinement more than revolution, the Xperia Z3 is the phone the Z2 should have been and every bit as good as that sounds

It's only been 6 months since the Sony Xperia Z2 hit the shelves, but the company has already announced its successor, the Xperia Z3. It offers a more

Sony Xperia Z3 review

 

Has Sony added enough to warrant a Z2 sequel already?

Brilliant battery ; PS4 Remote Play is brilliant ; Premium build

Bugs in the operating system ; 4K still doesn't work properly

An improvement over the Z2, but not a huge one. It does pack a great, bright screen but needs to be better packaged to fight the best on the market.

Sony Xperia Z3 review: A smartphone that has style, performance and battery life

 

A beautiful design, good performance and a very long battery life make the Sony Xperia Z3 a fantastic phone

It's also a better bargain than the Xperia Z3+, as I much prefer the Z3's design and the difference in speed isn't worth paying such a high premium for. However, its performance levels are starting to look slightly long in the tooth compared to the...

Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z4 comparison: What's the difference?

 

The Sony Xperia Z4 was a no-show at MWC 2015, but it is on its way. Here we look at how the new Sony Xperia Z4 will differ from the current Sony Xperia Z3 smartphone. We compare what we know about the Z3 and what we think we know about the Z4 to find...

It's impossible to reach a verdict until we have seen the Sony Xperia Z4 in the flesh, but from the sounds of it we'll get a significantly better screen and much improved performance. Will that be enough to make you upgrade? We'll have to wait and see.
