The Sony Xperia Z3 is just 5.85 inches long and 2.89" wide, but it is able to fit a a 5.2" display. The Sony Xperia Z3 is just 0.35 inches thick, making it one of the thinnest phones in the market. Sony is offering this phone in two colors: black and white. This cellphone isn't very light comparing with today standards, weighting 6.02 oz.

This phone has an astonishing 5.2-inches screen with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look amazing. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 592 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This device comes with an exceptional 2.5 gigahertz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC system chip and a large 3 GB of RAM. Graphic calculations generally uses lots of CPU time, so the Sony Xperia Z3 also has an extra Adreno 330 GPU ticking at 450 megahertz to take care of them, leaving the CPU free for other tasks. A good point of this cellphone is its large 32 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory slot, more than enough to install hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without even thinking about how much memory is left.

The Sony Xperia Z3 is equipped with two cameras, a 20.7 MP back facing camera and a 2.2 mega-pixels front facing camera. this cellphone's back facing camera has an aperture of F2 so it can shoot excellent pictures even in poorly lit environments. It is capable of capturing 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps, and slow motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) up to 120 frames per second (4 times slower than reality).

The Sony Xperia Z3 has a 3200 mAh massive non-removable battery, enough to provide this phone with an amazing battery life. Sony afirms this phone has a 21 hours talk time and a 920 hs stand by time. An issue to take into consideration is that this phone's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins losing capacity, though having 3200 mAh you will probably buy a new cellphone before that becomes an issue.

The Sony Xperia Z3 costs about $ 299, quite high for a phone this level. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a cellphone to mainly use social networks, are a photography fan, will use it as a gaming device or want a work phone, this cellphone is probably a great option for you.
