Overview

Adopting the same 5.2-inch HD (1080 x1920 pixel) screen and similar if slightly lighter and slimmer aluminum chassis, the waterproof Sony Xperia Z3+ Android-based smartphone boasts a more powerful 64-bit Octa-core Snapdragon processor and an improved front-facing camera, but the spec of the rear 20-Mpix camera looks unchanged. However, in our industry standard tests consisting of real-world use and lab tests, it notches up some impressive results, proving that you can’t judge performance from spec-sheets alone.
