This phone is good, flagship-grade alright, but I guess people have higher expectation. I guess if it's priced below $500 it would sell like hot cakes.
AnonD-311857, 24 Sep 2014why the battery isn't as good as the z3 compact. It's even worse than its predecessor The Z3 Compact has a better battery life because it is using a smaller screen (= less power required for backlight) with a lower resolution (= less processing required with 777,600 pixels vs. 2,073,600 pixels). That is the disadvantage you get with 1080p and I'd rather have the Z3 Compact because 319ppi is still more than adequate unless you use your phone with a magnifying glass.
Also interesting that GSMArena has a slightly different tone on the camera performance than in the Z3 Compact review. I assume they have the same camera performance?
These phones are the best on the market by far and it is sickening to see the degree of hype given to other fashion devices in much of the media while completely ignoring these. As far as I'm concerned you are an idiot if you buy any other phone than the Z3 or Z3 Compact.

AnonD-224733, 25 Sep 2014iphone and samsung owners, wake up! the new king is xperia z3. seriously. sony deserve so much... moreSeriously?! This looks boring to the max!! There is no innovations at all! Still the same MP camera as previous Zs, even the running of multi layered apps looks bad as compared to Note 4. Is a waste of money to get this.
Z3 should have Snapdragon 805, QHD screen, OIS, dual Led flash and fingerprint scanner. This is not even an Z2s.
Bad move from Sony, selling same phone 2 times
So, 99 per cent same as Z2, only with weaker battery. LOL
Put xperia z, z1, z2 and z3 to each other and spot the difference?
AnonD-224733, 25 Sep 2014iphone and samsung owners, wake up! the new king is xperia z3. seriously. sony deserve so much... moreOh please... let them buy iPhone and Samesung. The less people have the same beautiful phone as ours, the better. We are the classy minority, not common hipsters.
Only took 4 tries to real flagship worthy flagship. Finally, Sony.
LOL at the picture comparing Z3's body with Samsung S5. Like beauty and the hunchback of notre dame.
Seriously, GSMA? There are no disadvantages with this phone! Slightly larger than its competitors! Are you kidding? Go use a compare tool and it is perfect for its class. Suggest you try the iBend 6 Plus and you will truly understand what large looks like.

iphone and samsung owners, wake up! the new king is xperia z3. seriously. sony deserve so much more sales then iphone and galaxy phones. so much better.
The flaws still there. As a Z1s user, I just want to say that Sony really should've move to sim card slot to the left instead of staying on the right. Reason? Well, get a case that came with cover and you can immediately see why. Cause then charging the phone is pain in the ass. And the charging port for the docking station, Sony should've replace it with wireless charge already. I'm not saying that the xperia Z line isn't a good, in fact it's a great phone. But, I just can't stand my usb charging port and the cover for the port so it can waterproof. Cause my started to became loose now.
Image and video quality are absolutely stunning! Z2 looks like a total crap compared to this. Absolutely amazing!
One does wonder why headphone output is always very quiet with xperia devices.
Also Supernatural rulez, one of the best series befitting the best mobile site!
I do not agree with the suggestion that this phone may attract Z1 owners. I still get vast support like 4.4.4 and almost monthly update of all default apps. Do not miss 4k video, miss the stereo speakers though.
The copper colour should have been just for the frame. The back should have a light tan-sand like colour. Also that light blue is not very good. They should have gone for dark blue. Still not as hideous as those coloured samsung galaxys
