Sony took advantage of IFA 2014 to lift the veil on the new flagship of its fleet, and therefore on the Xperia Z3 . Those who follow me on the networks know, the manufacturer invited a few bloggers to an event in Paris at the beginning of the week, to allow them to take charge of the beast. Better, he even let us leave with a copy so that we can test it in peace.
Before getting started, with the complete test, I therefore suggest you discover a first video which places the terminal in front of its predecessors, namely the Z2 and the Z1.
As some of you may know, the Xperia Z3 shares a big chunk of its spec sheet with the Z2. It thus embeds a 5.2-inch IPS screen capable of displaying a Full HD 1080p type definition, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage , a port for micro SD cards, a sensor of 20.7 million pixels and the same front camera as its big brother.
Is it a copy of the Z2 so far?
Absolutely not. Technically speaking, Sony has made some notable changes and the firm has worked a lot on the brightness of the terminal screen. The latter now reaches 600 nits and it offers a more natural rendering of colors. The same goes for the main sensor built into the phone, which now offers a sensitivity of ISO 12,800 in extended mode.
But the first thing that strikes you with the Z3 is ultimately its looks. While it looks like the other devices in the range, it also has many differences. In the list, we must mention its rounded edges, of course, but also its hatches, its strap attachment system, its speakers and its new colors.
Points that I wanted to address in this video which lasts a little over seven minutes, but which will allow you to see what the Z3 looks like in real life.
Otherwise, well my Getting Started should be published next week if all goes well. In the meantime, if you have any questions, do not deprive yourself of them. Same thing if you want me to address some points in detail.
