Bought Xperia Z3 10 days ago , after selling my iphone 5s .
First of all both phones are good ,
It depends on u which one u should go.
I m not new to android , before 5s , I had galaxy S2 .
I bought Z3 cause Some of my friends told me that , Z3 is having much much better spec. Than iPhone 6
And this is my comparison
1 - Display. , of coarse Z3 has got Good ppi resolution , but u can not see much difference at normal distance .
I m not impressed by Z3 display ,
iPhone 5s display had Great Colour reproduction , Better Deep Blacks ,
Great Contrast , better sunlight visibility .
2 - Size , Z3 is not compact , I should bought Z3c.
And I need time to get used to
3 - Camera , Spec of camera is impressive 21 mp Camera.
Z3 and IPhone 5s both camera are great ,
Resolution and zooming of Z3 camera is looking Better than ip5s
But colours are looking more accurate and attractive on ip5s camera .
but other than resolution and zooming ,
I m dissapoimted to say that , overall ip5s camera was better it was taking more accurate pics and More accurate Details
4 - Performance , Disappointed too much
I found dual core 1gb ram much smooth and fluid even in multitasking , 3gb ram is trap
5 - OS , android is very cheap is , same apps are looking much better graphicaly and interface on iOS
6 - gaming , iPhone 5s had better frame rates and more graphics effects , but gaming on 5" screen is much better experience than 4" .
7 - Bluild quality and status , of coarse its iPhone 5s ,
1 of my friend say after looking at Z3 , why u bought T3 Xperia and sold apple ?
That was frustrating movement
8 - Touch id , I missing a lot , frustrated always , when I have to enter 6 digit pin password .
9 - Water resistant , Great feature , I have taken underwater pics. On z3
10 - Heating , Z3 heating more than ip5s
11 - iphn 5s , I cannot transfer files over Bluetooth or Software data cable .
ITunes dependences etc.
12 - 4k video record Z3 , I cannot record more than 2 min. , dont know why its heating too much .
13 - I think call quality was better on 5s
14 - don't know why , from yesterday , Z3 is not smooth as before ,
I think should do factory reset , its frustrating .
16 - Battery life , its impressive , it last long 1.5 Days for me .
While ip5s Only 8 am to 7 pm
But it takes near double time to charge compared to 5s
doubt, 12 Oct 2014guys does sonyz3 really gud in water proof bcoz they say so and even all the ports are closed ... moreI've dunked my phone in water and ran the tap over the phone. The headset jack works just fine after those tests.
I'm honestly really impressed with the screen visibility in bright daylight. My old Galaxy S3 would struggle outside but the Z3's screen remained clear and visible despite being under bright sunlight.
Overall, I didn't regret switching to Sony. Was planning to get the S5 but the Z3 swayed me over to Sony. The build quality is impressive, it feels solid in your hand. Despite its size, it doesn't feel unwieldy.
The speakers are surprisingly loud. I was blown away how loud it is. Though, I've never handled a One M8 so I can't really judge but the speakers are definitely louder than my old S3. They are as loud as the speaker on my iPad 3.
One downfall would be the rear glass, I started to notice scratches on the rear glass only a day after I got the phone. Perhaps I should invest on a case as this seems expected for a phone with a glass back.
All-in-all, I'm really satisfied with my purchase. The phone is fast and snappy. Sony phones are underrated. Probably the reason is that they didn't spend much on marketing as Samsung and Apple.
sharath, 11 Oct 2014guys,
I am planning to buy z3 today.but people @showroom say z3c is having better battery lif... moreit depends on your choice . if u want bigger screen then Z3.
Z3c have better battery by around 2-3 hours , so its fine. it should not be a matter of concern
both can last 2days of normal usage
saint69, 12 Oct 2014i can't decide between this and the G3, i want a cameraphone that won't let me down, the perfe... moreI Advice you Z3 over G3 because their camera qualities are almost equal .
If G3 has OIS then Z3 have Steady shot.
Z3 have have highest ISO rating means better in dark also.
with Z3 you can take pics underwater too
moreover Z3 have numerous camera apps which are awesome to have fun , which no other brand have.
Z3 video quality is better than G3.
Top of all , Z3 battery is more than twice as good as G3 . G3 QHD display sucks lot of battery , its web browsing last only 6 hours while on Z3 its 12+ hours .
i can't decide between this and the G3, i want a cameraphone that won't let me down, the perfect all-rounder. s5 is ugly as hell, note 3 also and it's getting old, the m8's camera is shit, so the z3 and g3 are my choices. i've tested both countless times, i find the display of the sony more vivid, and those speakers are great, but the camera seems unimpressive compared to the g3's... any advice?
Compare them to the bezels of the m8 and add the ip68 rating and they won't seem huge at all
bruce waynee, 11 Oct 2014sony xperia phones are worst , thats why company is making loss , instead of profit, camera ... moreSuggest you go buy your iBend 6 Plus! And as for the iP6 and the Z3 being the same price point...only if the iPhone fell off the back of a lorry!
bruce waynee, 11 Oct 2014sony xperia phones are worst , thats why company is making loss , instead of profit, camera ... moreOh dear, another tool who thinks sales equal quality or the best! It just means brainwashing people with great marketing and people buying brand names rather than the best!
asdfgh, 11 Oct 2014Sony is known for listening to their customers. However, there is still one issue remaining. T... moreGo look at the bezels on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and then talk! The bezels on the Z3 are absolutely fine especially when I am watching movies in landscape mode and compared to the iP6, it is relatively bezeless!
guys does sonyz3 really gud in water proof bcoz they say so and even all the ports are closed headset jacket is open is it save just had a doubt.....
Just got my xperia z3 dual and I report it works with At&t LTE AND MUCH MUCH better than my iPhone 5. Sony hit it out of the park no doubt!!!!!!!!
bruce waynee, 11 Oct 2014sony xperia phones are worst , thats why company is making loss , instead of profit, camera ... moreUhm.. Dude, you buy iphone, you only get the brand coz ur only paying for the brand. Thats the brand of fools. We bought sony coz we're paying for the high end specs and features
