Sony just introduced the Xperia Z3 in Berlin earlier today, along with the Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, and a whole mess of accessories. But what’s really the deal with this phone? Is it just a minor tweak to the Xperia Z2? Does it do enough right to really make a name of its own? We stopped by Sony’s IFA 2014 presence to find out for ourselves, going hands-on with the Xperia Z3.
Thin bezels, a beautiful display with tweaks like an intelligent contrast engine, and a camera that’s not just high-res, but also offers some impressive optical performance, all add up to make this a pretty compelling smartphone package.
Beyond features, we also look at the build quality – this is a phone that doesn’t just seem to have its act together on the specs page, delivering in the performance department, but one that has a body that’s not just quite thin, but also resistant to attack from the elements. Watch below to check out everything we got to see for yourself.
