Sony Xperia XZ3
Before I jump into the Xperia XZ3 Verse (pun intended), I want to give a massive shout out to Sony for not only giving the fam the opportunity to review our first ever gadget but also the fun side of doing it. Never would though we would have so much fun over a phone.
I’m not going to bore you with the typical information you usually get on tech reviews, If that’s what you was hoping to get then scroll down and watch our Unboxing & Review video. Instead I’m going to give you my full experience with the XZ3 for the past few weeks.
The latest model of the Xperia X series Is something you can call the pathway to the next generation of phones, without being overly charged.
My first contact with this phone felt like MJ: Smooth!! It is so smooth It slipped straight out of Sam’s hands and mine, but don’t let the super slick slim glass fool you, this phone is designed to whitstand any type of liquid thrown at it and it’s built with Corning Gorilla Glass 5, protecting the phone on the front at back. MAD!
I was going to leave this aspect to last, but If you know me I’m all about the visuals and I cannot contain the excitement to talk about the OLED display. The XZ3 has set new barriers when it comes to displaying videos on handheld devices, this phone comes with Sony’s BRAVIA TV technology! It is insanely good watching movies, being on YouTube and watching NBA games showing more on the screen with the bordbless and curved design. To add to this, It upscales the image making everything look super HDizzle (basically a very high definition) even If the original source’s quality is lower.
Colours and sound is a madness! I have never felt this way about a phone’s colour and contrast abilities and the X-Reality and Sony’s Dynamic Vibration System is a bonus, when watching movies or series. I mean what do I need my tv for when I have this phone? Seriously I cannot commend enough on the entertainment this phone brings, while still handling the normal job of a phone.
I have always turned to androids since I rely alot on my phones to stay organised and having it set up to cater to my everyday needs, again Sony has impressed me with their efficiency and ways I can get around the phone quickly. I tend to have lots of apps due to my responsibilities and the diversity of jobs I do, the AI on this phone is pretty slick even though I am still getting the hang of the quick access by tapping on the side (I tend to forget I have this shortcut) but when I do, It feels like myself and the XZ3 are synchonized together. I like that.
Speaking of responsibilities, one of them Is Video Managing and I wouldn’t be doing my due diligence If I did not test the camera. I am more than happy not having to carry my heavy DSLR Camera and instead have this feather weight phone that can shoot 4K. Winning!
While on the subject of using the phone for work and using the camera, the battery can really last despite of recoding long periods.
Overall this feels like a very complete phone, which is very unsual as from my experince phones tend to have no more than three strengths but with the Xperia XZ3 Sony has built a complete if not a flawless smart phone. I still find myself learning more about his phone, as the more I seem to be synched with it the more I am enjoying having it.
Again hats off to Sony for their approach in adding the OLED Technology, taking phone entertainment to a new level.
See more. Hear more. Feel more. Escape from the everyday into your world of entertainment with the Xperia XZ3. Experience an HDR OLED display, stereo speakers and Dynamic Vibration System at your fingertips in a stunningly slim and borderless design.
To buy or Not to buy?
Being an Android user over the past decade, the Sony xperia XZ3 is the new meaning of transcending in the world of smart phones and the price for what you get is unmatchable. It’s a buy!
