And according to GSMarena photo comparison tool the Z3 is also better than Note 4.

Yes definitely. The Note 4 is similar to the S5 in some ways and apparently uses a Samsung ISOCELL sensor. While shots are great in good lighting, low-light shots are unimpressive.

With the Z3 Sony has finally made a capable smartphone camera, but the auto mode still has a lot of work to be done. It is a bit frustrating to use the manual mode to get fantastic shots.

Yes it is very unfortunate because most users will only use the auto setting.
Even my girlfriend was very confused when she realized that with superior auto the Z3C is only able to take photos with maximum resolution of 8MP.
And my girlfriend plans to return her phone because, she thinks that the phone is just some chinese clones.
Luckily she tells me the problem first so that I could explain to her and now she finally starting to learn about how to use the camera with manual settings, she also realized that taking pictures with manual settings is far more fun.

I've ordered the Z3 and was wondering what headphones it comes with SIM free in the UK. Did everyone get the noise reduction headset or just stock, cheap Sony headphones?

My O2 branded Z1 didn't have any headphones in the box and Sony kindly sent me some.

iphone 6+ vs xperia z3
stabilization fight

amazingly, the z3 does better
did they really activate OIS there? or can you even deactivate OIS?

still, sony should fix the colors/white balance/contrast on auto. they already deviated from the "natural" look on their displays. it shouldn't hurt going "unnatural" with the camera this time since that's what looks more appealing to most buyers.


also,

xperia z3 vs galaxy note 4

does not look that credible, though. the note 4 pics look unusually blurry and dull. but maybe just a defective unit.

I haven't been here in a while. After a 3 year stint with Samsung, I'm back to Sony.

Loving my new Z3.

Any more details on this? Where did you see this offer? Also, where is the Sony booth in Westfield - not sure I've noticed it before!

I wonder what the "participating stores" are. Might just head along this week at some point and try my luck!
