Wow Z3 Compact is the same size as Z1 compact but has 0.3inch bigger screen.
What has science done Sony is chopping it's bezeks adding more screen ....Z3 compact might be killer this year ...
So what's the point of Z3? A slimmer n profile, that's all?
Z3 Compact seems nice though. Still would have liked it see 4.8" display with slightly bigger size. Still for actual Z1 Compact owners it'll be a nice upgrade.
I am happy with my Z1 Compact. The Z3 Compact will be better if Sony uses same screen size but narrower bezel to make it smaller.
Z3compact will be the next beast of smallest android smartphone if the dimension is correct
z3 compact is interesting...for me,iphone 6 and z3 compact will be best phones for this year
I am also on board for the z3 compact if this is true. The z3 or note 3 must offer something truly amazing to consider going bigger. At the moment I am using a half broken z1 (my fault) And prefer my sisters z1 compact.
Eske Rahn, 08 Aug 2014Sony should take a look at what they do in another Japanese company: Sharp Look at the 303SH ... moreWhy would I buy that over the Sony? Too thin top bezel with a gigantic bottom bezel! Plus more importantly, not sure where you live but the Sharp is hardly available widely......!
"5.15" display with full HD resolution and have a Snapdragon 801 chipset with a 2.4GHz quad-core Krait CPU inside it, coupled with Adreno 330 GPU, 16GB of internal storage and a 20.7MP camera"
Sony... Please, Make something new !!
The Z3 compact seems to be a great phone, both size and specwise. I own the Xperia sp and it has the same screen state but bigger dimensions. To me 4.3-4.7 inch is the perfect screen size and if Sony continues to make ZxCompact series and don't make ridiculously sized mins(4.7-5.0 inch), i will someday be able to buy it's successor. Good job Sony. Btw i don't think Z3 will be a good upgrade.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2014Why snapdragon 801, the new sony xperia z3 need contain snapdragon 805, new year new chip new ... moreseriously? alpha? exynos with its overheating problem will kill galaxy alpha for sure
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2014Why snapdragon 801, the new sony xperia z3 need contain snapdragon 805, new year new chip new ... moreMost likely because 805 won't be available as early as they would like to release those phones...
Perfect! The z3 wont size up!!!! And best, it will be thinner and more sexy! Cant wait to see it.
Good time to also further improve:
the sensor (less megapixels, more quality?)
the lens (some high grade glass perhaps?)
Forget it. The marketing guys won't give a green light it seems.
Technology is there. Experience is there at Sony.
But no , They just DO NOT WANT TO CREATE A DECENT CAMERA PHONE.
I don't know why.
Anyone got an explanation why Sony doesn't construct something good?
The pureview 1020, 808 or even the N8 camera module still are on a total different level of camera quality, certainly in noise, and colour area; how i say., Natural Feel?. Real Resolution (not mpix) is the only thing where Sony is somewhat in the direction of these camera phones.
(never liked sony cams in the first place, wx5 and others. older
