Although it's a disappointment Sony hasn't increased the screen resolution along with its size, and the camera's quirks are rather odd, the Xperia Z3 Compact's improved design, vast amounts of power, decent battery life and waterproof body help it maintain its position as one of the best mini flagships around.
It isn't quite the same as the Xperia Z3, but Verizon's version has nearly all the same features and wireless charging, too. Take a look.
Our review-in-progress of the Z3v shows plenty of promise, but the upcoming T-Mobile version has many of the same features, too. Read our impressions.
The Xperia Z3 is Sony's latest flagship smartphone, packing a 20-megapixel camera and two-day battery into a waterproof body.
What makes the Verizon-only Xperia Z3v different from the Xperia Z3? Look for yourself.
The Xperia T3 may not have the high-end specs of its top end brother, the Xperia Z2, but its big screen and good looks make it a fair choice for those of you looking for an attractive phone with a display large enough to enjoy movies on the go.
Yes, a phone can double as a game accessory: snap the Xperia Z3v into a cradle that rests on top of a PS4 controller, and it streams games locally. We tried it out, and it really works.
Although the Sony Xperia M2 looks pretty slick, it's let down by its low resolution display and its old version of Android, which makes even its affordable price way too high. For much less money, you could snap up the Moto G or spend a little more and pick up the older Xperia Z with its full HD display and waterproof design.
The Xperia Z3 will arrive on the "Uncarrier" six days after its brother, the Xperia Z3v, hits Verizon Wireless stores.
It's waterproof fro up to 30 minutes, has a 20.7 megapixel camera, and can stream PS4 games wirelessly from a nearby console. Hands-on with this not-quite-Z3 smartphone, coming soon.
