Apple make me laugh. Iphone 4, then the new one better camera with S on it. Then 5, and then 5s, Then 6.no doubt there will be a 6s, at least all Samsungs look different. And there hardware are different.
Iphone 4/4s/5/5s/c all dual core, same spec, just different shape. why??
I just ordered a Sony Z3 Compact. Battery life, small size and water resistance sealed the deal, and the low price didn't hurt. The performance of any of these three phones is more than adequate for my purposes, which are mainly e-mail, navigation, Web browsing and plain old phone calling. However, I carry my phone always and everywhere, so water resistance and durability are big for me. I've had issues with both Apple and Samsung products breaking in normal or even light use with a Samsung phone, with less-than-helpful customer service responses in both cases (though to be fair I've also had a couple of dicey experiences with Sony customer service for a computer). My new phone will wear a case from day 1, and along with the dust and waterproofing I hope this will make it last.
ABADDON, 21 Oct 2014Sorry Sony! Your Xperia Z3 compact looks so cheap IMO.Actually iphone6 here... Looks the cheapest
It has awful design
Which it actually is by production cost ;-)
X, 13 Oct 2014Just for your info you can greatly extend the battery charge on the iPhone 6 by enabling the g... moreEven u can extend iPhone6 battery life, sony z3c has more battery life.. It has stamina mode and extended low battery.. It has been tested to stay for 1-2 days without charging.. And iphone can't do that.. Also powerbank is available for both devices so z3c has an edge..
They all have wins. Though I debate the useful of the "design"category where so many aspects are lumped into one big score.. kinda meaningless.
But Z3c's wins are where it counts, and its losses are minor:
- Camera (still works just fine)
- Screen (still perfectly usable)
- Marketability (if this was your game you'd have already bought an iphone).
No question for me, Z3C by far the best balance, and gets things right that really make a difference.
Z3's camera & photography segments are not as unique as like in Alpha. Despite having my loyal support for Z3 compact, I must agree & admit, that overall camera performance of Samsung galaxy Alpha is much better than Z3 compact even after having its so called 21 mega pixel camera.
How many guys agree with me.
Daparagon, 19 Oct 2014Hey dude. The sony xperia z3 compact got a glass back vs iphone's aluminium back. Which one do... moreDragontail glass is actually the rear panel is so unlikely to crack compared to a conventional Gorilla glass used for front screens. Plus glass is better looking than aluminium, its funny how ifans loved the glass in the 4 & 4s but now they like the aluminium! I do have a good memory and they were mocking other phones with aluminium construction claiming its too heavy and will scratch easily.... well talking of scratching easily.....
unattributed , 19 Oct 2014I agree vitaz, i think they are over rated to be honest. As for the i phone 6 getting the bes... moreHey dude. The sony xperia z3 compact got a glass back vs iphone's aluminium back. Which one do you think would get more ugly in a hard fall
Vitaz, 16 Oct 2014Because the Xperia Z3 Compact doesn't have the fingerprint it does not mean it's a weaknesses!... moreI think its for everyday use. It's a new method to keep others from peeking thru our phones when we enter PIN or Passwords or Patterns, etc... I'd still go for Knock code though. :)
Vitaz, 16 Oct 2014Because the Xperia Z3 Compact doesn't have the fingerprint it does not mean it's a weaknesses!... moreI agree vitaz, i think they are over rated to be honest. As for the i phone 6 getting the best design, I dont think so, it's too big for one handed use and with the aluminium it will scratch plus them massive bezels.The Z3C should of won that test but there is a bit of biased reviews on GSM for a while now
the complete phone of 2014 xperia z3 compact... best battery life thats important for all best size that you can put it in ur pockets easily work with one hand and the best performance .what do you want of the phone to do for you ? this phone not enough for you? z3 compact best choice for everybody dont miss it
It's only me who thinks that this would be perfect last year?
One Alpha with 4.3" 720p would be a better deal, and it's sucessor would be free to this 4.7" screen, but 1080p res.
Would Apple launch 5S and 5 Plus in this scenario?
Well if one could use an iphone for remote play then we would be living in a "perfect world".
KK India, 15 Oct 2014My take on all three:
IPhone : best screen, premium looking, better hardware software integra... moreThe screen difference between iphone 6 and z3 compact is only 7 pixels per inch,I'm sure you see the difference!
Z1 Compact had 342 ppi compared to iphones 5/6. 326 ppi did you see it then too?
Z3 has 440ppi is it better than iphone?
