Support for xperia z3

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

The Sony Xperia Z3 isn"t a phone that you"d have thought would make a lot of sense. After all, the Xperia Z2 was a nifty little handset và yet it"s now been replaced barely six months later.


The new phone, from the outside at least, doesn"t seem to add much more into the mix, merely improving things a little more & tweaking elements that were already pretty good. So has Sony really done enough?

The Xperia Z3, which lands alongside a new tablet và mini phone khổng lồ complete the family (the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact và the Xperia Z3 Compact), is a really good phone that does it all, on paper at least.


Sony told me that the reason these flagships are coming thick và fast is simply because it wants khổng lồ start making waves in the high-end điện thoại thông minh market, và the way to vì that is always offer the best innovation.



That"s perhaps true, and perhaps customers won"t get too confused by seeing a new phone on the shelves & advertised all the time, but there"s no doubt it kills the lustre that might have been built by users having khổng lồ wait a year lớn get the best of Sony in a smartphone.


It needs to work as well - while Sony does OK in some markets (it"s still got a lot of fans in the UK, for example) the profits are dipping in the điện thoại thông minh business, and something needs to lớn be done lớn arrest the slide.

So is the Xperia Z3 that phone? It does come in attractive colours (white, black, copper gold & "silver green") and has a shrunken frame, improved camera & that all important Sony PS4 Remote Play compatibility.



Black, white, a silvery-green và copper are your choices

Those things alone would be good enough for most, và the IP68 rating (which might not really change the way 99% of people use their phone) is at least a good "peace of mind" sale tool.

Sony has now introduced the sequel to the Xperia Z3 as well, the Xperia Z3+. Sony has skipped the Xperia Z4 name for this iteration & once again it"s fustratingly only an incremental update.

A new processor mix up, a slightly different body toàn thân shape, new colours và a slightly trimmed battery pack cosplay the new changes. We"ve had a little hands-on time with the new phone but we"re currently unsure whether it is enough to blow the Xperia Z3 out of the water.

We"ll know better when we manage lớn get our full review under way but for now check out our hands-on nhận xét with it here. But for now, here"s the Xperia Z3.

Design

The kiến thiết of the Sony Xperia Z3 is something that surprised me from the word go - I didn"t expect to be as impressed as I am.

This is a phone that has dimensions of 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm, which compared to the Sony Xperia Z2 (146.8 x 73.3 x 8.2 mm) doesn"t seem all that different.

But the slightly shrunken nature of the chassis is very nice indeed (especially the millimetre thickness shaved off the phone), và something that I really want to laud the brand for.



The ergonomics still don"t quite impress - this is, after all, a slab of light-feeling glass encased in a metal band, and the flat edges make it slightly harder to hold and grip (and easier lớn drop, as I did a couple of times).

But in terms of aesthetics, it somehow impresses me every time I look at it. Yes, the bezels above & below the display aren"t anything lớn get excited about (they"re just too large lớn look nice, but presumably pack some important components) but the overall package looks premium.




Why the dock connector?

The rest of the phone is largely as expected: the Omnibalance key at the side is pretty easy khổng lồ strike, and although the volume key is positioned just below and theoretically too close, the larger kích cỡ of the phone makes it easy enough to lớn differentiate in the hand.

I vì chưng hate that Sony keeps putting a dock connector on the left-hand side of the device - this confuses in the hand, feeling a bit like the volume key, & I can"t see that it"s something many people would actually use given the smaller sales of such aftermarket accessories.

Then there are the port covers. We clearly need these khổng lồ make sure the phone is fully waterproof of course, but the problem here is that they ever so slightly stick out, even when pressed in as hard as possible.

The main culprit is the cover for the microSD & SIM thẻ (which is now a nano option, showing Sony is starting to fall in line with the rest of the industry) which just protrudes slightly và therefore ruins the sleek, premium air the Sony Xperia Z3 has.


The port covers just don"t stay flush

The other change to lớn the design is the nylon covers in the corners of the phone - apparently these are cleverly added to lớn stop the phone looking so damaged. According to lớn Sony, most phones land on these corners when dropped, so putting the covers on helps stop the tarnished metal.

Except, well, it doesn"t. The corners on my review device are fine, but even before dropping the phone later in the test, there were already two small nicks in the metal band in just over a week.

This is the same thing we saw with the iPhone 5, and anyone that"s owned one of those & kept it out of a case will see the scratched up monstrosities that some people are walking around with.

I don"t think the Xperia Z3 will suffer to quite that degree, but it"s interesting to lớn see the effect happening so quickly.

The front facing speakers are worth a mention here too. Not only vày they help to justify the oversized bezels, they also provide some pretty good và rich sound.


Thank you Sony, long may the camera key continue.

Some of you may be wondering if it"s now worth waiting for the Xperia Z4 and if the rumours turn out lớn be true, it will be.

According khổng lồ various sources the thiết kế will be of the same language as previous Sony Xperia products but this time around it"s going khổng lồ have much thinner top và bottom bezels with the iconic square corners rounded off.

None of the rumours are anywhere near confirmed yet but it"s worth bearing in mind the Xperia Z4 may be a drastically different looking smartphone when considering what Sony offering you want lớn pick.
