if z3 compact is anything like my actual z1 compact ill upgrade definitively.
I just saw z2 as the latest hot model and now Sony is releasing z3?!! Wtf sony.. why u wanna spam the market? My Z trade in price is already on the bottom line since z2 and now another z3?? Seems like Sony love spamming the market with same design. And sony fans will say gud no matter what. And when same thing happen to Samsung, they bash around and call them Spamsung.. and noe what?? Sony = Spammy?
I should be dumping my Samsung S4 for Sony Z3. I am sick of samsung phones already
I'm in the same boat as you. I been waiting for the z1 compact since November 2013, now i want z3 since its slimmer. it sucks
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact :
1.Display.- 4.5 inch FHD - LTPS - Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 3 ( 450 PPI density)
2.Memory.- 3 GB RAM
3.Chipset.- Snapdragon 805
4.Battery.- 2500mAh minimal
I didn't buy the Z2 because I refuse to spend a small fortune just to get tiny 16Gb of storage. And no, sdcard is not the same thing, far from it.
Sony should release with all carriers so that way it will sell like hotcakes. I want to buy with contract $200 its cheap way to buy.
If this is true, Sony doesnt want to delay technology. The twice a year highend phone release is a subtle way to show that THESE companies are delaying the technology for US consumers. look at apple, after 1 year, iphones just make a subtle face lift to their phone.
however, it does not mean that you have to buy a phone twice a year. you may skip generations before buying the next iteration.
From the looks, Z3 compact will be:
- Snapdragon 805 or 801 (actually doesn't matter), if 805 then more memory (coz 801 supports up to 2 gigs);
- Memory will be 3 or 2 gigs, depends on processor;
- Screen will be 4.5 inch 1280x720 most definitely, and that's the biggest difference with Z1 compact;
- everything else is the same as Z1 compact, but I hope for bigger battery actually :)
For Z1 compact users, there won't be any point in changing phone, for others, it is good to consider :)
Anonymous, 09 Jul 2014Both need contain Snapdragon 805, but Sony Xperia Z3 have to be 2K, while Sony Xperia Z3 Comp... moreI think it can't have 4 GB of ram. It would need a 64 bit cpu/SoC and 64 bit os to address that much of ram as far as I know. At least this is the case with PC and Windows (maybe addressing method in android is different?).
EX Sony User, 09 Jul 2014As I was enjoying Z2 cause I bought it last month, now Z3 is on the way. Sony have you become ... moreWhat? It's a personal ego problem not a Sony problem....
What is the difference between htc m8 prime, samsung S5 prime and z3... but in naming only?!?!
Your reasoning is quite illogical...
Z3 compact?? what about the z2 compact? as far as I know, after 1 comes 2 not 3.:)
Hope Sony release this phone before August. I was waiting for the Z1 Compact now I hear about the Z3 Compact now I have to wait longer :(
