@bono the Z3C is no bigger than the Z1C which was only a hairs width of an iPhone 5s, Sony have done a great job in cutting some of the fat as the screen to body ratio has went up from approx 61% to over 70% although not the best by any means it's a step forward in Sony reducing the size of the bezels.

Any idea what material the frame is? Let´s hope it isn´t plastic...

Looks like the frame is plastic. I hope the front and back panels are glass this time.
So... No optical stabilization?

Transluscent plastic.

I like it, this is an area Sony is doing a great job in, I just hope they learnt their lesson from the Z1C and promote the hell out the Z3C.

The mix of Snapdragon 801 AC, 2600mAh battery and a HD720P screen should make this thing beastly as hell

But no more shatter proof sheets??

Posted by miromiromi
from gsmarena:


**************************************************





**************************************************
the rescaling wasn't even necessary. what is shown in z3 photos are expectedly smaller than those of s5's because z3 has a wider field of view. it's unfair to downscale the s5 photos to match the size of objects in the z3 photos as the downscaling makes the photo sharper.

I like it too. For people that prefer smaller phones this is definitely the phone to get. I also hope Sony will promote it well- thus thing deserves to sell

I think you noticed the lower contrast ratio? It got brighter, but the black levels did suffer. Everything else were good, better even like the sunlight contrast ratio. Gotta wait for PA for their additional display tests.

Posted by randomuser
Doesn't matter how high the brightness is, contrast ratio is what matters overall. Sure it would be more legible in bright sunlight, but it does lose overall quality. The contrast ratio is lower than Z1 Compact and significantly lower than Z1.

Things are turning out to be the same all over again

Posted by itsjustJOH
^Wel, they did not say anything bad about what they saw. And I don't think that it majorly impairs the overall quality. With everything else brighter, I don't think the grayer blacks would be noticeable.

As for the camera, it did improve, but still a wee behind.

Posted by ascariss
Sony's achilles heal on the the z1-z3 seems to be noise, still evident in some photos. The pretty shitty part is the panorama mode, so poor it hurts, using Google's camera, I can get amazing panoramas with much much higher quality. Shame, guess sony still need to fix this.

there is also a 12800 image, which tells me nothing, since I have no idea how the original lighting looks like.

If you compare the z2 and z3c, there is quite an improvement in image quality, bringing up a question, is this improvement due to new software/algorithm or a modified sensor?

Posted by admad
At last Sony fixed their camera issues, look at the difference in quality, it's just miles away, with same sensor... It's a win and shame for Sony at the same time. Win because finally they provide quality, and shame because they do it so late, and with the same sensor, which brings questions, why such a big difference? Same goes for video. And yes, it's time for me to say it, Z3C camera quality is very good, might be even the best among android. I'm impressed.

funny how the display stats of the z1c and z3c don't reflect in the photos.
everywhere, the z3c display appears to be the significantly better display.

i'm happy enough with the camera. the hardware aspect seems good enough. if we want a different way of processing images, we can use other camera software.

the z3c for me is practically the best smartphone this year.
and we need to highlight its relatively low PRICE

Posted by motvikt
XZ3c looks awesome, will buy it for sure. Can't find a single bad thing.

Posted by rss_ndrsn
I dont think the gsmarena's display test is accurate. According to the brazilian youtube review i have watched, z3 compact's display brigthness only maxes outs up to 549 cd (~590 for z3) which is inline with 600cd that Sony promised. Ill take their display test with a pinch of salt.

Posted by McKinley
The image quality is definitely on par with the best there is.

Posted by RandomCarpet
The 20.7MP sensor might be the same, but it seems they have changed the (G) lens in front of it.
As a result - the softness at the corners is significantly reduced.

Posted by Bonovox
The manual mode photos on GSM Arena look dreadful

Posted by zooz
Superior Auto looks pretty OK. Manual OK. HDR is awful.

Sony can never get the HDR correct (plus it shouldn't be hidden in the menu).

Do you think the Android L update will improve it?

But then, so does everything else made by Sony.

That broken record is playing a good tune

Posted by miromiromi
and then gsmarena took out the antutu score from their review.
looks like some folks don't really want to see a sony device winning over a samsung. maybe gsmarena is still redoing the test to achieve a lower score and post it with the claim that there was something wrong in the initial test.

or is something wrong with my browser? i can't see the antutu score there anymore.

i don't really understand gsmarena's bias against sony these days. when describing the camera performance of the likes of LG, they can use the words "excellent" and "one of the best" and other superb adjectives. with the z3, they settle to simply describing certain points of the camera's performance and say "OK" for the conclusion. if you compare the z3 and lg shots, it's difficult to understand how the z3 can't deserve the "excellent" description.


@McKinley, please ignore that negative entity.
it thrives on attention. when it was ignored a few posts back, he just left.

sony says that they have this new tech that automatically adjusts contrast under bright light to make the display more legible. we really need to have that tested.

@miromiromi
Hahaha ... I've just realized that Antutu benchmark results has been missing from their review.
Maybe they will also replace the Z3C photo samples with the worst photos that they can produce. So that people like you, can't complain about their biased reviews.

I also wonder why some people really like talk s**t about Sony phones. But at the same time they don't do the same thing to other phones.
For example, I have never seen bonovox bashing the S5 because the crappy low light performance or because the video looks like an earthquake when you're moving around.

I dissagree!
Z1C have overblown contrast which result in lost details from midtones to shadows which is not good.
Z3C have superior display than Z1c by a mile and it`s contrast ratio is in the very good range don`t be mistaken by the numbers alone. Having more vivid colors, greater viewing angles and sunlight visibility, higher luminance not to mention unparaleled power comsumption is noting but awesome.


I don`t think this is bad contrast at all.

I didn`t think I would be tempted to switch from Z1C because I don`t like missing metal frame on Z3C but with those specs, battery life and the price which is 150GBP less than Galaxy Alpha and maybe 300 less than iPhone 6... here we go Z3C - you are mine!


Posted by itsjustJOH
There's probably something wrong with the Antutu benchmark, as Z1 Compact users also report about 43-44K scores.
