The Sony Xperia XZ3 tweaks the Xperia XZ2 design with a focus on AI features and improved photography.
Sony's very much forged its own path in the Android world, eschewing the trend for dual-lens cameras or notably flashy gimmicks for the most part and instead delivering a range of solid, if not always exciting phones under its Xperia brand. Its latest announced handset in the premium space is the Sony Xperia XZ3.
- New smoother design style.
- Wide range of colours, although we might not see all of them.
- Super slow motion at 1080p.
- No dual lenses yet.
- Should perform identically to other Snapdragon 845 phones.
- Dynamic vibration is still a gimmick.
- AI-assisted Side Sense makes apps easier to access.
- 3,330mAh battery onboard.
- Sony delivers another great looking handset.
- Tough to stand out in the 2018 premium pack.
Pricing and availability
- The Sony Xperia XZ3 doesn't have announced Australian pricing just yet.
- In the UK it will cost £699, which would equate to around $1,299.
