At first glance you will mistake the Z3+ for a Sony Xperia Z3, and wonder why it did not announce the Z4, and then you realise the Z4 is what Sony is launching worldwide as the Z3+, with refreshed hardware and a slightly thinner body.
The 5.2-inch full high-definition screen on the Xperia Z3+ is gorgeous and sharp. Inside, the Z3+ runs on an OctaCore Snapdragon 810 processor, and is supported by 3GB RAM onboard and 32 GB of storage. Sony claims that its battery can run up to two days. Quick Charge on the Z3+ allows you to run the phone for about 50 minutes on a recharge of just 10 minutes.
It also features a 20.7 megapixels camera with a new 1/2.3 inch Exmor RS sensor with backlight. Its Bionz Image processor and Pulsed LED flash make the camera much better than its predecessor when it comes to low-light photography. The Z3+ also has a 5 megapixel front camera with a 25-mm wide angle lens that allows you to pack more people than before into a group selfie.
Where the Xperia Z3+ shines is its IP65/IP68 equivalent certification for water and dust proofing. You can use the phone in the rain and even wash it if you want to, and this time round, you don’t even have to worry about covering the USB port. Another upgraded feature of the Z3+ is that you can use the touchscreen even if it is wet or you have wet fingers.
The Z3+ also features LDAC compression technology that lets you listen to high resolution content on your wireless headphones— you need Sony’s LDAC compatible Bluetooth headphones to enjoy this advantage, though.
The Z3+ is encased in an light aluminium body and sells in white, black, copper or aqua green options.
This smartphone supports 4G LTE and has Bluetooth and WiFi on board, as well as NFC.
