There´s a lot of competition on the smart phone market nowadays. More than ever before actually. Apple may have been the top cat of the market for several years now.But times have (and the circumstances) changed.
Samsung has started to take market shares from Apple, and China wants a piece of the pie as well (Google “Xiaomi“, because they are the worlds third biggest smartphone manufacturer now).
Then we got Sony (that´s now independent from Ericsson), whom has been something of an underdog for quite some time now. But that´s about to change. And the Xperia Z3 seems to be the very beginning of that change.
Me, i´m a Gamer. So i really like that Xperia Z3 supports “PS4 Remote Play“, and that it´s a really powerful smart phone (you can play the most advanced mobile games on the market with no sweat!).
Awesome indeed. But what does the Xperia Z3 costs then? About £549 for a unlock phone (Tre sells the unlocked version of Xperia Z3 for 6,000 Swedish krona).
That’s A pretty good price considering what you get for that money (check out the Xperia Z3 features list down below!).
Besides, it´s about time that i get a new smartphone. Because i´m still using a old iPhone 4. But what about you guys? What do you think about Sonys Sony Xperia Z3?

About Sony Xperia Z3:
Xperia Z3 is the smartphone that does more and goes further – whether further is a run in the rain or a dive into the pool on a sunny summer holiday.
