Very nice. Though only main changers are slimmer, better display, and better iso. Mostly same as Z2.
The S5 and Note 4 are still overall champs.
Though if the Note 4 was not around I would be getting the Z3 for something amazing and slightly different.

They should fix their lousy freezing lagging 20 mp camera first. Later they can talk and.brag about their.phones.
Sony z1 and z1 compact cameras have errors the camera keeps on freezing every time. When I wrote an email about this topic, they told me clear the cache! Or turn the phone to safe mode. They just don't want to accept the error. Instead of fixing the error with a little update, they.are. Insisting on not. You can also find tons of people complaining about the same thing. They are going to lose customers!
Here's a quick unbiased review(from my brother's z3)
Undoubtedly best looking smartphone i ever saw
the speaker volume is average,in fact slightly worse than the z2 but not bad at all.
camera is really amazing.only downside is high noise in some cases.overall best camera experience on a smartphone.
kind of expensive right now and z2/s5 is a better deal in my opinion.
And the sound, oh, the sound.... ;-)
DeDeTe, 26 Sep 2014Xperia is a great line of phones, but the new iPhone 6+ camera kills my Xperia one.

Dont know about that...
Steadyshot and better mic do make a difference ;-)
Xperia is a great line of phones, but the new iPhone 6+ camera kills my Xperia one.
The 6+ is the new king of phone cameras.
To all the people out there complaining about water damage: NEVER use an electronic device under water!! Electronics and water never go along, nor they ever will. You know that!
YES Sony claims it is water resistant to some extend, and yes most of the time it works. But you have always things like faulty phones and statistical errors. Some phones aren't just waterproof, like some iPhone 6 Plus' can bend. Or Z2's can have a 'selfcracking screen', and so on.
Now taking a so claimed 'water resistant phone' to the swimming pool with the full awareness that your specific device can be a defective unit after all is just plain stupid. You can't explain it afterwards to Sony service centre since they would never know whether it was just a defective device or you were just too stupid to not close the flaps. Just play safe and be ensured of a working device after some rain drops.
Don't take a risk and go out there looking for trouble in the swimming pool.
gayankap, 26 Sep 2014i'm a previous xperia z lte user and it was a disaster i switched to it from my galaxy s3 back... moreFalse. All of it.

And yes, i did plenty underwater pics and movie
gayankap, 26 Sep 2014i'm a previous xperia z lte user and it was a disaster i switched to it from my galaxy s3 back... moreHeads-up Not to listen to useless gibberish and Not
Sony Xperia user,,, sounds like competitor Marketer worried about market share!
gayankap, 26 Sep 2014i'm a previous xperia z lte user and it was a disaster i switched to it from my galaxy s3 back... moreI have my Acro S and Z1 for quite some time already
2 years for Acro S and almost 1 year for Z1.
And the flaps are still working properly, even when i dunked them in a glass of water.
Stop misleading people with your "truth"
And stamina mode do work.
But i turn it off because i need my data connection.
BTW, the 'motion sensing' as u said were already implemented from z2 onwards.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 2014Dummer,,, keep saving.and.you eventually Buy Nothing!!i said i will buy next sony device worth to buy, not save my money and buy NOTHING, some people just didnt think before they make a comment
I have a htc one m8( amber gold),my second choice is only z3.

gayankap, 26 Sep 2014i'm a previous xperia z lte user and it was a disaster i switched to it from my galaxy s3 back... moreAhah, NONE of that is true of xperias newest flagships
I ll tell you a feature that z3 doesnt have though...
Its called Troll-free mode...
Wish they had implemented that...
gayankap, 26 Sep 2014i'm a previous xperia z lte user and it was a disaster i switched to it from my galaxy s3 back... moreBs, the flaps are now much better than on z. I have z2 and been using it the last 6 months. Flaps still working fine, no lag and still water resistant.
