There are four notable improvements that the Xperia XZ3 brings to the table. Firstly, there’s the slightly bigger 6-inch size with an even better P-OLED screen technology. Then there’s the higher Quad HD resolution which ensures a great viewing experience.

Under the hood of the Xperia XZ3 is nothing short of phenomenal with its Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with a blazingly fast Kryo octa-core processor, great graphics and either 4GB or 6GB RAM.

But the highlight of the show is definitely on its latest camera technology. With expertise from Sony cameras, the Xperia XZ3 captures every moment in higher quality. The Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor captures photos with detail, while the G Lens captures detail and texture accurately. BIONZ™ for mobile image-processor gives precise motion detection and fast image processing. Get ready to shoot with AI in Xperia – you will never miss the moment with the Smart launch.

For selfie lovers, you can now take brighter, clearer selfies with the 13MP selfie camera that delivers great shots in low light conditions. There is also a display flash for night time shots. With Bokeh effect that defocuses the background and beauty effects, you can make your subject stand out.

The latest Android Pie 9.0 operating system is there to ensure that the most powerful hardware gets the optimisation and most recent features that the newest software from Google can offer.

Finally, the Xperia XZ3’s battery is built to last, combining a large 3330 mAh size with intelligent optimisation. When you’re using extra energy, Smart Stamina works ahead of time to keep you powered up for longer. It has no problem to power up the smartphone for a full day of usage.

Conclusion:

Sony Xperia XZ3 improves slightly but comes with a slightly higher price tag. The $100 price difference gives you a larger 6-inch screen with better P-OLED technology and higher Quad HD resolution, better 13MP selfie camera, slightly better battery and the latest operating system all combining into one.

Sony Xperia XZ3 had just been released in October 2018 for ~ USD 900 price tag. Choose from Black, Silver White, Forest Green and Bordeaux Red colours.
