imho i feel like the Xperia phones that sony release at the beginning of the year is the more appealing choice to get because the one at the end of the year is like an upgrade the same way how the S line for apple ( e.g-4s,5s etc) are upgrades for their predecessors (e.g-4, 5). so if i'd buy the amazing phones that sony put out, id get it at the beginning of the year, that way im with it the whole year and when i upgrade, my mind will get blown.
whats the point of launching this phone if its pretty much a Z2 o_0.... sigh
its going to be a flop because they are basically pulling a samsung but worse. an update is like no update at all except the new jacked up price!
Lol ofcourse its fake.. How can there be no difference between z2 and z3? people stopped using there common sense it seems :/
I was gonna buy but now seriously Sony are u f**king kidding. It needs 32gb at LEAST, snap 805 and qhd. Sony can't afford to slack when the note 4 is around the corner.
I guess a fingerprint scanner would be presented in Z3 to meet the market needs since most of will known web sites starts to accept payments with swipe of finger, I suggest to locate it on the upper right side, once you pickup the phone it would be easy to scan the finger and login to the device
This is ridiculous to introduce a phone that is same in specs like the previous model.
And as for the camera: no improvement at all, no OIS etc. And in all reviews picture quality is worse than in the Galaxy S5 or LG G3.
You could expect Snapdragon 805 from a device that will be sold in the second half of the year.
If those are the features of the Z3 then I'd rather wait for Z4. I hope the Z3 has better features, I need to upgrade from Z1.
With those specs and commercialization in Q4 it will be a flop ...
Better to wait for snapdragon 805 availability to show something slightly new.
Sony seems to keep trying catching up without a good plan of action.
Anonym, 23 Jul 2014May this be the one whose screen (or back) doesn't just crack by itself. That issue (just goog... moreI got a z and didn't crack till now, and i droped it a few times and it didtn't even got a scratch so stop saying things if you never had one.
The alleged specs for Z3 seem stupid. Really, what's the difference between this phone and Z2?!
I don't know, and time will tell, but I think that the Z3 will be at least a bit better (than the article says) and it will be an absolute must for Sony to make it quite better than these predictions, 1 to give the reasons for switching, and 2 to stay at the technological levels of the others, like Samsung, LG, Oppo, etc. At least Sony have to include in the Z3, obviously same specs as the Z2, plus QHD DISPLAY, 3GB RAM/ 32GB internal storage (128GB SD card) better Stereo Speakers, at least 5MP front facing camera, the Snapdragon 805, and minimizing a lot more the bezels!!!!!! And then it will be really an excellent contender! !!!!!!!
Mobilemaster, 23 Jul 2014Again only 16 GB. Why not more if their competitors offer more than just 16 GB?Agreed! As a consumer I'm really frustrated with Sony in producing these 16GB (and below) storage smartphones where as Samsung, Apple even the Chinese company namely ZTE could produce more storage than that (ZTE produce 128GB of internal storage in their ZTE Nubia X6). As far as I concern, there is only three 32GB model available from Sony which is Xperia S, Xperia SL & Xperia Z1S (only available in the US markets). Come on Sony you got to keep up the pace or else its the end of you.
