Review: Sony Xperia Z3+

Called the Xperia Z4 in Japan, but Z3+ everywhere else, here’s how the new Sony Xperia Z3+ stacks up. The Xperia Z3+ is Sony’s newest flagship smartphone, but it’s title might soon be usurped when the rumoured Xperia Z5 arrives next quarter.

Design

Sandwiched by two layers of glass, and all around metal body and aluminium trimming gives the Xperia Z3+ sleek, premium look. I particularly like that the Xperia Z3+ is only 6.9mm thick. Featuring the same “Omnibalance” design style, the Xperia Z3+ looks like a carbon copy of the Xperia Z3, and even the other siblings. But there are improvements, the reduced thickness of 0.4mm makes the Xperia Z3+ easier and lighter to hold. Although it seems like the trade off spec was the battery, which is now reduced from 3100mAH to 2900 mAH. Another new addition is bumpers to the Xperia Z3+ corners to give it reinforced strength.

The right side of the Xperia Z3+ features the volume rocker, power button, and retains the same dedicated camera shutter key from the Xperia Z3, to help with taking photos.
