From the first time I lay eyes on the Xperia Z3 I knew it was going to be a premium product and I wasn’t wrong. Everywhere you look around the device it radiates quality , from the Gorilla Glass 3 on the front and back, to the aluminium band and buttons on the sides to the amazing 20.7MP camera. You really get the impression alot of effort went into designing and producing this phone and it shows.
The OS on-board the device is Android 4.4.4 KitKat, with Lollipop planned for the early months of this year (2015) and it runs very smooth, thanks to the beast that it the Snapdragon 801 2.5GHz Quad-Core processor,giving a flawless experience what ever you do with the device, play games, browse the web or play video’s.
The Camera as I previously said is a 20.7MP powerhouse w/ 4K recording. The image quality is outstanding, everything is crisp, colours are nice and true, it’s a high quality camera. 4K recording is present on the device, but you wont really get the full quality of the recording because the device only has a Full HD screen. If you are going to want to to get the full video quality , you’re going to need a 4K monitor or 4K TV,none-the-less a nice feature to have.
The device is also IP68 water and dust proof, like all the other flagship Z devices. This means you won’t have to worry about damaging you’r device if you drop it at the beach or into the sea, a feature I think is keeping the device from having a 2K/4K screen, but it is a feature that can save you alot of money and time.
The Xperia Z3 is an absolutely amazing phone. I have to say it’s the best android phone I’ve tried to date. If you are on the market for a new phone I highly recommend looking at this phone. The build quality is outstanding, the camera is amazing, the OS runs smooth, gaming is a pleasures and overall a flawless experience all round.
