Sony Xperia Z3v: Out to Make a Splash
Here’s a review for Sony Xperia Z3v and we’re getting it straight. It’s bright, vivid and has awesome front-facing speakers. It has 20.7-MP camera, a dedicated shutter button and waterproof design, which is one of its most appealing features.
Evidently, the waterproof Xperia Z3v offers a lot more than its ability to get wet. Its camera, 20-megapixel, is one of the most promising in the market.
The slick Z3v can be enjoyed in two colors (black and white). It shows off thin tempered-glass panels in front and back and has stereo speakers hiding beneath two small slits at the top and bottom. Its sides and edges are plastic, emphasized by metallic inserts that double as covers for the micro USB, nano SIM and microSD ports.
Additionally, it has a noticeably flappy covers which helps waterproof the Z3v. The shiny tempered-glass back also has built-in wireless Qi charging. Unlike other phones that rely solely on touch-based controls, it has a shutter button that allows you to take underwater pictures. By holding the shutter button, you can even skip the lock screen so you can head straight to the camera in just a sec, which is awesome for unexpected photo opportunities you never want to miss.
It measures 5.85 x 2.89 x 0.35 inches and weighs 6.02 ounces and is just a little taller than the 5.6 x 2.9 x 0.31-inch and 5.1-ounce Samsung Galaxy S5 (5.1-inch display) but considerably heavier. In comparison with the iPhone 6 Plus, it is smaller and lighter.
Finally, Z3v features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip like the previous Xperia Z2, but gets a slight boost from 2.3 to 2.5 GHz. And with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of flash memory, the Z3v has no trouble keeping up with other flagships such as the Galaxy S5.
