If you can’t up with Sony’s releases, you’re not alone. The Japanese manufacturer is known for the rapid cadence at which it launches new smartphone iterations, and we’ve come to expect a revamped Xperia model at very major mobile trade show. IFA 2018 is no exception
The Xperia XZ3 is here to show that sony can keep up with industry trends, naysayers be damned. The new phone comes with an OLED display, some spiffy edges, and, for good measure. a dose of AI. Here’s what you need to know about the Xperia XZ3.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 features a 6-inch Quad HD display. For the first time, Sony is joining virtually every other major OEM in using an OLED panel. It’s an 18:9 screen, which makes the XZ3 feel much more compact and easier to handle than the Xperia XZ2 premium.
Turning to the back of the phone, the Xperia XZ3 comes with the same shiny glass design as the XZ2. The Gorilla Glass 5 is a total fingerprint magnet, but when it’s clean, it looks stunning. We really liked the wine-like purple version, Which is extremely stylish. the other color options are black, white, and a luscious sea green.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 is powered by the Snapdragon 845, in line with the best android devices out there. Where the phone falls a little short is in the RAM department. 4GB of RAM may be enough for day-to-day use for most customers, but we still would’ve liked to see 6GB on the spec sheet. Phones that sell for under $300 now offer 6GB of RAM, so there’s little justification for Sony to stick to 4GB. It’s the same story with storage space 64GB feels mid-range these days.
Sony is the premier camera sensors manufacturer, but ironically. its smartphones are not really known as the best camera phones in the industry. Still, you can always expect a solid camera from Sony. and that’s the case with the Xperia XZ3 as well. Sony has gone back to a single camera. but kept the same 19MP sensor it used on the Xperia XZ2 premium. the lens is a little faster though potentially allowing for some better results in low light.
