Sony once again uses the proven formula for success. Sony Xperia Z3 – an example of beautiful, well-assembled device with productive housing, acknowledges the electronics Japanese quality, so it is difficult to understand why the manufacturer is no longer among the top five on the platform Android.

If all members of the Z line lay in a row, body to body, and ask someone to distinguish then it would be very difficult. Sony Xperia Z3 is a sleek smartphone in the body thickness of 7.3 mm with a distinctive design. The manufacturer did not go on about the increasing trend of the diagonals, but rather made Z3 compact than its predecessor. Size reduction, albeit slight, and superiority over Z2 in harmony benefited ergonomic device. Despite the gloss back panel, the unit is easy to hold in one hand, and the face of the body does not dig into your palm. At this time, a sandwich of two glass panels packaged in aluminum “bumper”. To solve the problem with the reception quality in each corner to put a small plastic insert, having painted it the color of the body.

As with the previous flagship, Xperia Z fourth generation is not afraid of no dust and no water. Certification according to the standard IP58 suggests the possibility of a dive to a depth of five feet for up to thirty minutes in fresh water. Therefore, these vital connections for microUSB-cable, memory card and SIM again hidden deep under the not very aesthetic plugs. Consequently, the perimeter of the gadget is a bit congested functional elements. On the right side posted a double volume button, and a small projecting power key and a private key to start the camera. On the left – the magnetic connector for docking station and a strap hole, which is useful if you use your smartphone as a camera, especially under water.

This classic from Sony: refinement of style OmniBalance, minimalism and harmony. The frame around the screen is almost the same distance from the screen. Symmetrically on both sides settled neat speakers in the corner there is a place for the LED. On the back side there is nothing new: camera with flash modestly settled down in its usual place on the left, a well-known world logo and the name of the vendor line of traditionally painted silver to stand out beautifully in the sun. Xperia Z3 looks like a flagship, and it is. Spoils the overall impression is just too strong response vibrator. And Sony has to regain its place in the top 5 Android phone makers and need to bring a new design with the launch of Xperia Z4 or Sony Xperia Z5 release date later this year.
