Detail review for Sony Xperia Z3
The Xperia series have been well-known for the simple design style with the aluminum and glass combination. These smartphones are just a little bit thicker than the market-leading iPhone 6 from Apple and the recently released model – Sony Xperia Z3 has a major competitive advantage: the waterproof capability. The phone can survive under the 1.5-meter depth within up to 30 minutes. This feature is nice and together with the smooth performance in general, the Xperia Z3 is really worth your consideration.
People have underestimated the design of this phone, but it’s still easy to identify that the front and back panels are made of sturdy glass and the curve sides are made of aluminum. Although the phone is 5.75 inches tall and the screen measures up to 5.2 inches, you can still hold the phone comfortably in hands. This is exactly a smartphone for those who don’t bother large size smartphones.
The screen of this phone is not as expected. It doesn’t have a QHD screen, but at least the brightness is proper and the colors are lively enough for viewing the screen at any angle. The screen has a 1080p resolution and Sony applies the IPS LCD technology for this screen, but its performance is not really impressive. Using the phone outdoors may be challenging because of the sun glare and in comparison with other screen, the viewing angles of the Z3 screen are narrower. This screen is nice, but not outstanding.
The camera is on the back of the phone. It’s also nice like the screen, but in the same way, not excellent. The image sensor of this camera is a six-element sensor, which has the resolution of 20.7 megapixels and ƒ/2.3 aperture. The sensor is of large size and great in general, but because the photo processing is just under the standard, so you will notice images of overexposure and the colors turns to be warmer, compared to the images produced by other smartphones.
For fans of the game PlayStation4, there is one nice unique feature in the Sony Z3: the game can be played right on the phone. But to be able to play this game, the phone is required to connect the same Wi-Fi network with the home console, and an attachment will be needed so that you can use the PS4 controller with this smartphone. This controller will be very useful for you to play top-tier console games while staying far from the couch.
The greatest smartphones often go with strong processor, great camera, the powerful battery as well as other nice features. Meanwhile, the strong points of the Xperia Z3 are the waterproof capability and PS4 game playing support. The Z3 has not been ranked in the top positions of our favorite list, but it’s good enough for a fan of Sony.
