I love Xperia xz3. Best phone
Best colors and amount of color detail captured by camera. Auto pre-shoot also great. Shame they lag behind in using right auto mode, even more of they advertise that hdr. Noise is also funny with that processing power(probably no stacking), my old phone can do better without stacking, and if its detail, just capturing stack of raws will yield better output. It comes with hw shutter, but feels unfinished, same as awesome screen without colors set right, do they wait for gsma to set it for them?...
No soap opera going on with Sony XZ3 flagship...
Sony is legit and thus just beginning of there cell tech.

I think the auto brightness is not available bcz the pie's adaptive brightness might be working under the hood.
Very interesting that the XZ3's portrait mode even works with non-human objects, although it doesn't have a dual pixel sensor.

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.

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.

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.
Great review Gsmarena team thumbs up 👆
