The flagship model “Xperia Z3” and “Xperia Z3 Compact” from Sony which sees its business performance continue to slump. Both are of high quality and will stimulate your purchasing desire. The top of the line model Xperia Z3 is equipped with a 5.2 inch full HD display.
Compared to the high end model such as the Samsung “GALAXY Note Edge” and LG Electronics “LG G3” with its WQHD display it does not match in terms of specifications.However, having actually used it, those devices with WQHD display have slow response and heavy battery consumption and therefore are receiving the full adverse effects of high quality display. On the other hand Xperia Z3 with its full HD display is more user-friendly.
The side of the body is made of metal and exudes luxury. The previous model was sharp edged but with the Xperia Z3 it has evolved into a rounded design and is designed to fit the hand. It was announced earlier than iPhone 6 but it can be said that it is similar in design to the iPhone 6.
The back of the body is glossy, therefore it may slide if you put it on a table depending on the material so care is needed.
On the one hand “Xperia Z3 Compact” is the little brother of Xperia Z3. The CPU is Snapdragon 801（2.5GHz）which is the same as that of Xperia Z3 and the camera also has the same 20.7 million pixels.
The obvious difference to Xperia Z3 is the size of the display. This one has a 4.6 inch HD display and a built-in memory of 2GB (Xperia Z3 has 3GB).
The side of the body is also of resin material and therefore it does not have the luxury feel to it. However, in terms of ease of holding, Xperia Z3 Compact wins hands down. If you look at other smart phones on the market, big display is becoming the norm but if you are mainly a phone user you can say that the 4.6 inch size is very attractive.
With regards to the camera, both models can take a 4K movie and pictures with the fastest ISO Speed in history and hence taking pictures in the dark is its strong point. In addition, it has high resolution audio processing capabilities so if you use a compatible headphone you will be able to enjoy a very high quality sound.
The camera and the sound is jam packed with the latest Sony technology. However, if you take a 4K movie the temperature of the body rises and sometimes the filming can stop in about 13 minutes. If you are taking a 4K movie it is best if you choose a subject that can be filmed in a short period of time.
Sony products are apt to concentrate on specifications and the main concern is that it lacks in usability.Having said that both Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact have good waterproofing capabilities and even in terms of design it is of good finish and therefore as a high end model of Sony it is faultless. It can be said that it is a good buy for users fed up with iPhone.
