Before anyone comment l ask you to take a look at the photo comparison yourself with the xz3 note 9 and the p20 pro. In low light.
Look at the letters on those five dollars and pounds.
Anyone would say that the xz3 is better.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2018Let's face it, Japan is behind South Korea as far as mobile technology is concerned. Best so I... moreisn't the Mate series of phone's second rate to the P series?
I don't really follow Huawei or Xiaomi, Oppo or other devices that aren't popular in my area so I can't say for sure, but I thought the Mate series was the cheaper version.
Get it right GSMArena and start fighting for the consumer. The 3.5 mm headset jack is NOT "legacy" - it is still very relevant and lack of such needs to be placed as a con on EVERY phone without it.
I am a massive Sony/Sony Ericsson fan and would not even consider the XZ2/XZ3 because of this - better off with the XA2.
Kingslayer, 13 Sep 2018Sony can brag its getting Pie pre-installed first on their XZ3 but it doesn't mean you will be... moreThat is good.. I do not want a phone with Android that works like iPhone X...
It is ridiculous to swipe up, down, left, right and press long to do stuff instead of just clicking on virtual buttons..
Almost as stupid as the windows 8 desktop ( the worst version ever).
Let's face it, Japan is behind South Korea as far as mobile technology is concerned. Best so I've seen in ages yet delivers the same specs as a Samsung S9+ or close behind and its September... The new mate 20 is just around the corner, also the oneplus 6T...
For Sony lovers only this baby, others will look elsewhere
Good review. But could the reviewer or anybody in the know clarify if it has the full screen/gesture navigation features of Android Pie? By that I mean completely eliminating the navigation bar without any root or ADB. Thank you.
I hope screen is RGB, but the QHD might be sign of pentile.
Which is a poor technology.
Sony can brag its getting Pie pre-installed first on their XZ3 but it doesn't mean you will be getting updates as fast as Pixels. XZ3 is sprinkled with Pie. It doesn't truly feel like Pie like on a Pixel or Essential.
AnonD-632062, 13 Sep 2018Hmm. So all the people who bashed OLED all those years ago, will now have to eat their words a... moreP20 has much larger sensor. Using 6s would not give same results. Maybe it would work for Premium.
Come on GSM thus SONY cell was just named top flagship at IFA, should be at least 4.75 stars!
So happy that Sony is releasing a very nice phone (the curved edges look great).
When I look for a new phone my 2 primary brands are Samsung and Sony, will see what Sony has cooking when the S10 comes out.
GOOD JOB SONY.
Nightmare101, 13 Sep 2018I just checked this same verdict/conclusion pages of Iphone 8 plus and 10 and none of them say... moreYeah because of sponsors and needed to trash some brands for money's sake
This phone is better than the other smartphones who's out there but for the price people will chose the S9/S9+ but the camera and everything else is good.
This phone giving 2K native and OLED with a Quantum Dot technology namely here Triluminous So this is a first because no other OLED phone have QDs.
Also it's much cheaper than the new iPhones and yes they other 64GB of Storage and 4GB of Ram and in Asia 6GB of RAM and in Japan a special edition 128 GB of ROM as reported and all that with SD card support.
The camera is good because the noise never stopped the details to appear.
I know it's OLED and it will have sometime in the long run a burn ins but I still rather the LCD is much better until the microLED coming.
Some OEMs are taking the miniLED as a backlit and that would have been fine and greater.
The camera is more than too perfect and it has the AI camera like Huawei, It's just marketing that this site can accept to say it's better and that's OK.
