Sony Xperia Z3 underwater unboxing results in deep blue selfie
Among its many other virtues, the Sony Xperia Z3 has one of the highest dust- and waterproof ratings this side of rugged unwieldy bricks like the CAT Android series. It is IP65/68 certified, and can last more than an hour in up to five feet of water without damage to its internal organs.

As if to prove that point, British electronics retailer chain Carphone Warehouse chose precisely the Xperia Z3 for the first underwater unboxing video. It looks, like, well unboxing done a few feet under, and takes a heavy toll on the cardboard box, while the Xperia Z3 escapes unscathed.

The Xperia Z3 upgrades in a few main areas, compared to the Z2 - its screen brightness and processing power now rival or surpass those of the direct competitors, while its pretty unibody glass chassis is made even thinner, still keeping the high waterproof rating. In addition, our battery benchmark placed it in the top 5 battery marathoners currently, so there's plenty to get excited about even if we don't count the high waterproof rating.

That phone can do things no other phone on this planet can. That is why it's the best OVERALL phone. Sure other phones are phablets & have styluses but OVERALL this phone just does more than the competition.

I am a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owner who is going to get the Nexus X or the Sony Xperia Z3.

I can easily say that with no bias.

Bro , i don't talk about staylus or about certain OEM but i said so because every phone has it's own cons and pros and i talk to you as xperia Z1 and i know that sony has many flaws that they didn't fix it so far (the main one for me is the crappy camera software and post processing .
Peace :)

Yes nothing is perfect. I understand, but OVERALL the Sony Xperia Z3 does more things right than other phones & can do things other phones just can't.

That is why I say OVERALL it is the best, even with whatever flaws you peg it with. Supposedly the camera on the Z3 is actually awesome!

Imo if they put a physical button or go back to the capacitive ones, it will be the best Android ever built. Till then, it is tied with the Note 4, they both offer almost everything the consumer ask for.

Wasn't the iPhone 6 fully leaked, specs and hardware, more than 6 months before it's released?

Sony? Marketing? Sony is no good in that territory. But who knows, maybe Z3C will put Sony back on top. I doubt it, but it can happen.
