Sony’s iterative approach has served it relatively well. Since the original Xperia Z in 2013, we’ve seen a refinement of the company’s “Omnibalance” design language every six months or so. Though the technical improvements that accompanied each generation of Xperia flagship weren’t always great leaps forward, the phones themselves have generally been solid high-end contenders.
But like we said, iteration is nothing new for Sony. What really matters is how the Z3+ measures up to its major Android competitors, the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9. And as we’ll discover in our full review, this is a decent phone, though arguably a regression from the Z3 in a few important areas. Read on to find out why.
Discover a new side of slim
The Xperia Z3+ is slimmer than ever at just 6.9 mm, and incredibly light in your hand. In fact, if it wasn’t so nice to look at, you could almost forget you were holding it.
Loves every forecast
The Xperia Z3+ carries our renowned waterproof* design, so you can meet the day head-on – no matter what kind of day it is. The IP65/IP68 rating means downpours aren’t a problem. Nor is sand, spills or an accidental dip in the sink.
Picture perfect settings. In any setting.
The Xperia Z3+’s camera excels where other smartphone cameras disappoint. Indoors, at night, or when the sun’s behind your subject. With the best Sony camera technologies, your shots end up clear and sharp no matter where you are.
Two days of what you love
Get directions at midnight, marathon-watch your favourite show, or skip the charger in your overnight bag. The Xperia Z3+’s incredible battery life brings you up to two days of power, so you can do more with every charge.
