When the Xperia Z3 flagship was announced, it was joined not only by its compact 8″ tablet but also its compact smart phone the Xperia Z3 Compact. While other smart phone manufacturers churn out “mini” version of its popular flagship, there’s a good reason why Sony is calling it Compact after its Z3 model name.
Despite going smaller in size, the Z3 Compact doesn’t compromise on its vital hardware. It runs the same 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and even has the same 20.7MP main camera that’s found on its full sized flagship. The only set back is a smaller but decent serving of 2GB of RAM and its 4.6″ display that does HD 720p resolution. There’s also 16GB of expandable storage with microSD, while the battery has 2,600mAh capacity which Sony claims to be able to last for 2 full days of average use. And that’s without Stamina mode turned on.

Looking at the specs alone, the Xperia Z3 does look like a minor update or a mere facelift over its predecessor. Well, let’s do a quick recap of what Sony has done in the past flagship models. The whole high-end waterproof smart phone trend began with their original Xperia Z in early 2013. It was a great device at that time and its water resistance opens up new underwater camera possibilities. 6 months later they released the Sony Xperia Z1, a solid device with metal frames but the screen had poor visibility. Then at MWC 2014, we have the Sony Xperia Z2 that looks the same as the Xperia Z1 but it gets a much improved and slightly bigger 5.2″ screen, front stereo speakers and a larger battery which actually lasts us slightly more than 24 hours of average use.
So what’s in store with the new Xperia Z3? Read on for our first impressions.
Maxis has released this interesting teaser and the operator wants you to guess what are they up to. While many on the site are saying that Maxis will be announcing something about the iPhone 6, we are inclined to say that that assumption could not be entirely accurate.
It’s true that the iPhone 6 announcement is happening in a couple of days but it’s unlikely that local operators will announce anything about the new iPhone this early. What is likely is an announcement about the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (and probably the Note Edge). Why are we saying its the Note 4 and not the iPhone 6? Here’s why…
