    Featuring a 20.7 MP camera sensor that can shoot in 4K resolution, First up the Z3 flagship -

    What I like is that everyone is going metal now. Sony have really done an impressive job by going for a full metal edge feel (It's still plastic in some areas).

    If the Z2 and Z2 Compact are anything to go by, they surely indicate that the Z3 and Z3 compact should be some good looking phones with the premium feel to match the experience.

    Going all out and launching it in 4 colors is impressive though I do not forsee sales for the greenish one.


    Both devices are certified IP68 (Water resistant upto 1.5 meters for 30 minutes), which does add to their functionality and chances of you doing water damage to them under regular usage are next to nil.

    What I really liked however is the PlayStation 4 Gaming option, where in you can hook up your console controller to your phone for some serious gaming. Nice.

    So they make a new phone which has 4K recording capability, a brighter screen and has PS4 gaming feature (which nobody will be using)?
    Plus to make the phone slimmer they reduce the battery from 3200 to 3100mAh. :p
    Really don't understand how this is an upgrade from Z2.
    This is what happens when you have 6 months refresh cycle.

    For the same price, it's much better than the new iPhone 6.

    I have a feeling the iPhone prices are going to be even crazier.

    UAE prices are out. The 6-16 gb is actually cheaper than the launch price of the 5s. Around 44k INR here.
