Really bored with the constant repetition of the fact that Sony makes nice products. Well – again, however, I must point out, as the Japanese corporation contributes to the attractiveness of the entire market next Xperia Z. This time with number "3".
Already Xperia Z2 is for me an almost perfect example of the equipment (at the end of the arena comparative won the general classification). Xperia Z3, however, adds our vaunted predecessor more charm, grace and convenience. Maybe it's only my impression (first, after a few minutes spent with smartphone), but the Z3 is a bit more cylindrical. More rounded, which adapts better to the hand, but not to the same extent as the iPhone and preferably less profiled Galaxy S5. It is worth while to note that Sony is consistently developing its own product idea from both the visual and ergonomic precisely.
I noticed distinctly narrower frame around the display – the same thing that should cheer some of our readers. Generally, hardware design is slightly different. Slightly changed shape, size was reduced (from 147 x 73 x 8.2 mm and 163 grams to 146 x 72 x 7.3 mm and 152 grams). [Nggallery id = 1026 template = techmaniak] A remarkable element of the remaining aluminum frame, but now the hardware corners are reinforced with nylon. By use of this material Xperia Z3 to be more resistant to falls during direct contact of the passage of the housing to the ground. In practice, it is difficult to check I was this view. Logic would suggest, however, that it is true – if only due to better shock absorption.
These parameters are the same – but the increased brightness
The Xperia Z3 find a 5.2-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 dots – on paper it looks exactly the same as the previous generation screen smartphone. The manufacturer boasts that we have to deal with greater clarity; Unfortunately, we had no opportunity to measure luminance. The company declares, however, that we get around here. 600 candelas per square meter. A lot.
Performance also close
Snapdragon 801 again, but with a processor having a higher clock speed
Xperia Z3 is based on quad-core processor Qualcomm, featured by a 2.5 GHz clock speed. We have not had the opportunity to check the factual differences between her and her predecessor, but at first glance, both phones work just as quickly. In the course of just a few minutes, we could spend the final version of the phone, did not notice any slowdowns animation, cropping or terminating processes. Everything works as it should.
Sony reduces the focal length and adds an option to the higher ISO
Again, we get 20.7-megapixel sensor, but this time she works with glass with a focal length equivalent of 25 mm for full frame. What does it mean? Well enough that we can shoot with a wider angle, while remaining within more elements in the frame. In practice, we also have to deal with more distortion, but the final judgment to hold off until we get the first pictures of examples.The second thing is to increase the available ISO sensitivity up to 12800 – not yet had the opportunity to check if the function is available with a resolution of 8 or at 20 megapixels. It seems however that this is a native sensitivity; therefore remains only a matter of checking the quality of the image and the noisy level. This will, I suspect, better than most phones, but in general still average at best – in the end we have a sensor 1 / 2.3-inch. From the general I can say that the camera Z3 works faster than the predecessor. Individual applications to run smoothly, it seems to me also that the AF system to work with more confidence – and it worked in difficult conditions Lighting.
Longer battery life, more complex functionality
