Sony Xperia XZ3 Review – Third Time's a Charm



The Xperia XZ3 is Sony’s third 2018 flagship device, and it’s here where we see Sony’s new Ambient Flow design language truly take shape and excel at what it’s been shooting for. Sporting a new 6-inch Quad-HD+ OLED panel with curved edges, a 2mm thinner frame, larger battery, Android 9 Pie, and some truly excellent Sony customizations, the Xperia XZ3 is a stellar device whose only big problem is its price in the US. Looking for deep Playstation integration? A great camera with 1080p super slow-mo and 4k HDR recording? Look no further than Sony’s latest, especially if you’re in Europe where the price makes this a far easier buy. Find out here what we liked and what we didn’t!

Camera review:

The Good
Gorgeous new curved OLED panel
Thinner and lighter design
New design language is stunning with the curved panel
Dynamic Vibration system adds a new dimension to sound
Sony’s vibration motors are uniquely excellent
4K HDR video recording
1080p 960FPS super slow motion video recording
Predictive capture is a great way to catch clear action shots
New camera interface is a huge improvement
Excellent video recording sound quality
Front-facing stereo speakers are the best in the business
Audio output quality rivals the best phones out there
New always-on display options are unique and pleasant
Wireless charging
IP68 water and dust resistant
microSD card support for expandable storage
Better multi-tasking (overview) screen than stock Pie
Navigation buttons are still the most efficient way to navigate
Deep Playstation integration (native remote play, DualShock 4 pairing)

The Bad
Portrait camera mode needs serious work
No 4k60 video recording
Side Sense is a finicky new addition
No 3.5mm audio jack
4GB of RAM isn’t enough for a QHD screen
US price is too high

    Held off on getting this phone when it was first released in the U.S. due to the price. I've always wanted to try a Sony phone, but their pricing always made it a tough sell. Luckily (or sadly, depending on how you want to look at it), their prices don't seem to stay sky-high for long. This morning I was able to order a brand new international versions, with 6 GB of RAM as well as in the Bordeaux Red color (neither of which are available on the U.S. model), and only paid $629 through Amazon! Really excited to get this, as it really caught my eye last year, and it was only the pricing that held me back from picking it up then.

    This why I get fed up of people that review Sony phones because all they want is them to look and be like all the other crap phones I'm so disappointed the fact they going for the curv screen as its pointless and crap and I don't mind the top and bottom bezzles.

    Sonys main problem is its camera. It's shit. When sony will transit to 48-12 mp camera, it will sell a lot better. Nobody buys 900$ phone with crappy camera that blows the sky in 2018. And in 2017. And in 2016.

    R.I.P Sony mobile. Sales are lower then ever. They are closing down their business in several countries and regions around the world. Apple, Samsung, Huawei and other brands sells more mobile phones in a month than Sony does in an entire year
