Sony Xperia XZ3 Review

Score: 79.6 / 100

Sony Xperia XZ3 is a wonderful device released back in 2018, packing a 2.8 GHz Octa-Core processor, a big size 6-inches display, and 2 cameras, a 19 megapixels back side camera and a 13 MP front camera. Let's take a better sight of what this cellphone can do.

Sony justmade this cellphone in 16 777 216 color. Regarding its construction materials, this cellphone is mostly built with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 5) and Aluminum . The Sony Xperia XZ3 is incredibly slim and practical, with a thickness of just 0.39". This cellphone is quite a compact phone, considering it features a 6 inches screen and it has just 6.22 inches long and 2.87 inches wide. This time, it seems like Sony didn't care so much about the weight in this 6.81 ounces cellphone.

Sony designed this phone with an astonishing 6 inches display, and a 1440 x 2880 resolution, which makes it impossible to even distinguish the pixels forming the display.

Sony decided to build this device using an extremely fast Octa-Core processing unit clocking at 2.8 GHz, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845 system chip with a great 4 GB RAM. This cellphone counts with a 64 GB impressive internal storage and a slot for SD memory cards, which allows the user to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games currently available without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This phone features wi-fi capability (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a wireless router), LTE-A (4G) super quick connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a lower speed 4G variation) and fast 3G connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it can to work with 2 different phone numbers at the same time.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 19 MP back camera and a 13 MP front camera. this cellphone's back camera has a F2 aperture so it can shoot sharp photos even in low lighting situations. It is capable of filming videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 fps, and Full HD 1920x1080 slow motion videos up to 960 frames per second. In addition, the camera has time lapse video.

This phone features an inmense 3330 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery providing the Sony Xperia XZ3 an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is not removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to get older, though having 3330 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes an issue.

This device also includes many great features like Biometric fingerprint, Wireless charging capability, Near Field Communication (NFC), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Localization, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Sony Xperia XZ3 is not cheap at all considering it costs 900 dollars, and some similar devices cost a lot less than that. This cellphone is a good choice for you if you want a phone for work, want it to take plenty of photos, want a cellphone to mostly use social networks or need a cellphone for gaming.
