Sony has announced its most rumored smartphone Xperia Z3 replacing the already impressive Xperia Z2 at IFA 2014. The Xperia Z3 arrives at six months after the Xperia Z2, but Sony claims that its bringing a new and refresh design that are more relevant according to user perspective. The new device is much attractive in looks but question is that: Is it much better than Xperia Z2? So here we are to take a closer look in both device:
Xperia Z3 and Z2, both follow the same design principle as well as same resistance to water and dust damage. Looking-wise both handset are similar and attractive. But on the other hand there are several things that set the Z3 and Z2 apart. Sony’s new flagship Z3 is more slimmer and lighter than its predecessor.Also, Xperia Z3 is more narrower and has more rounded sides traits that make it is a bit easier to carry in your hand.
If we take a closer look in both smartphone’s screen, then there is no difference between these two models. Both have same diagonal size 5.2-inch and the same resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. The two screens exhibit pretty, popping colors and produce excellent details.
Performance and Memory:
The Xperia Z2 supports a 2.3 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 SoC, model MSM8947-AB, which is almost same as Xperia Z3. But Xperia Z3 is little bit faster as compare to Z3. It is equipped with the slightly faster Snapdragon 801 version, the quad-core MSM8947-AC, which can reach higher clock speed.
These both handset have same 3GB RAM and equal storage capability in their device as 16GB. In other words both are capable multitasking machines.
Camera and Battery:
The Xperia Z2 is announced with the G Lens and Sensor, which added some few more applications such as 4K video recording. But now Sony improve the camera of new model, Xperia Z3. The company increased the ISO to 12800, that will help to improve low light photos.
Also, Sony improved SteadyShot and intelligent Active Mode for steadier and crisper video. Further more is added some more features like AR Fun, Multicamera, Face-in, Sound photo, Live on YT, and Sticker creator.
If we compare the battery life of both handset, than Xperia Z3 is little bit behind as compare to Z2. The Xperia Z2 comes with 3200mAh battery capacity while the Xperia Z3 has a 3100 mAh capacity, but the company claims the new Xperia will offer two days life compared to the 1.4 days the Xperia Z2 is claimed to have.
According to comparison of both handset, it is more similar but still, we have to admit that the slimmer and lighter Z3 feels more elegant, and upgrades where it counts, much brighter display, and a better camera features. It is definitely a phone worth keeping an eye out for if you’re on the look for a zero-compromise Android high-end handset.
