This phone is simply better than iphone 6
Thank you GSMarena ...

Stereo crosstalk is too bad when headphones are plugged in, so the sound quality is NOT good at all, barely even stereo!

You should tell the hangouts and skype people about this issue. I know it seems strange, but these devices have nothing to do with such errors and all they can do is to try to block them through software, which is nothing more than a compromise.

Discrepancies are implicit. Yet, they don't matter. Imagine that this phone will definitely, most certainly and in ANY circumstance last you for over a day, which is all anyone needs.
That's a one elegant piece of phone :)
Awesome job, but i did expect better battery than z2. Is this test accurate? Anyway, brilliant battery no matter what.
- the copper color
- the dual sim
- the rounded edges

You comment the loudness of stereo speakers as average whilst they measured 75 db, quite the same as m8, but with different frequency range....I would call that perfect sound
And...others sites battery tests shoved better results than z2, why is there a discrepancy there?
"Audio quality is good"
So I suppose this phone would still make for a great MP3 player?
Perfect phone. Weldone sony
This is what i hate in z series. Whats the point of being waterproof if you cannot use the touch accurately.sometimes it is almost impossible to pick a call.Otherwise this is the best Android phone available.
Battery life may actually be better than z2 in real use. The z2's screen is extremely dim at 50% and is a dim screen even at max. The maximum nits are higher in the z3 than z2, so it is likely that the 50% setting is higher. I say likely and not definitely because 50% doesn't necessarily mean half brightness.
One thing I have to alert Xperia users to the issue of voice feedback when one uses Skype or Hangouts for video calls.
It seems apparent on Z1 and Z2 despite software updates and Skype app updates. The npise cancelling functions seems to be the culprit and there is no way to disable it during Skype or Hangouts video calls.
Is irritating to hear an immediate echo of what you spoke to the other party. Whether I used the original or 3rd party headset, the same voice feedback was there. I hope Sony addressed this problem in the Z3.

They chose to be fooled into paying top dollars for a subpar spec device which has less than 1Gb RAM and only Dual Core CPU.
Besides, the iCrap 5.5" model could be bent and become iBend.
Not that I have not used idevices before. I had been an iPod and iPod Nano and iPhone 4 user, all four crap devices kept crawling for the charger in a few hours of usage. Damn they have the crappiest batteries ever. Yet their batteries are embedded and not removable for a spare swap.
A Note 3 easily surpassed the spec of the 5.5" iCrap. This Z3 is definitely gonna be mine as soon as it launches. The battery life of the Z2 had already won me over. Next will be Z3.
Jin, 24 Sep 2014I don't know how people prefer iphone over this!Regardless of how IPhone is reviewed or what battery endurance it receives, millions of people will still fall in line for it...
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2014great.... but still i need a removable battery... i stopped reading the review at "Non user-replaceable battery"
