Even more Sony Xperia Z3 pictures leak, compare it with the Galaxy Note

Even more Sony Xperia Z3 pictures leak, compare it with the Galaxy Note
On Friday, a bunch of never-seen-before Sony Xperia Z3 photos found their way to the world wide web, and it was a matter of hours until more followed. Much alike to the first photo shoot, we again have the alleged Z3, shot from even more angles. What's more, the leaker has deemed the original Samsung Galaxy Note a fitting device for a side-by-side comparison, so there's that, too.

As for the photos themselves, we again have a chance to peer into the future, or so the author would have us believe, and so far it seems clear that Sony will be approaching the design of its front-facing speakers differently. The result, as some of you will probably agree, appears to be less refined visually -- in comparison, the speakers on the current flagship, the Z2, are almost impossible to make out. That said, we've got to say that the Z2's implementation could definitely be louder, so here's hoping the new design helps with that.

Speaking of design, the sides of this alleged Z3 are also different from what we have available right now -- they're far more aggressively rounded, and that should, hopefully, make the next Sony flagship a bit easier to grip. More as we get it, folks!

PA, those ads that go to the bottom of the webpage but redirect you to another website (www.onstar.com) when you tap anywhere on the page are ridiculously annoying and hard to close. Please get rid of them...

Just install an ad blocker add-on/extension for your browser.

Opening PA on android device is even worse. PA use advertisement that autodownload some shady APK, and ask me to click OK to install it (no cancel button, must click BACK soft-key).

I havent experienced anything like that. Maybe you already have some bloat that causes it?

It only happened when I visit PA. Maybe the ads agency that PA use used have some IP filtering, and only force to download that shady APK when from Indonesian IP address. Fortunately, whenever android download some android malware (shady APK), it won't install it, because I need to click ALLOW INSTALL FROM UNKNOWN SOURCE.

LOL. I don't understand what he said. LOLx2. I'm sure I don't have any bloat, since it only happened on PA, not on gsmarena, or any other web site. and I only download apps from the google ap store.

This is what happened... When I oppened www.phonearena.com in my anndroid phone. about 20% it will have a pop up say. The page at mt.moneyandroid.com says: Phone getting slow! Install C-launcher to Make your Android Phone FAST (OK) ...... ok button... no cancel. The pop up can't be closed, as there is no cancel/close button, only OK button. But lately, I found out using the soft back button on android can close the pop up. When I click OK it's open a page at mt.moneyandroid.com/topic/mobi/.... and at the bottom of my Chrome browser on android said This type of file can harm your device. Do you want to keep CLauncher_25002_102984169148.apk anyway? (Cancel) (OK)

So the Z3 "Compact" is basically going to be the Z2?

It's going to be Z3. Compact.

Same camera, same UI, same design. Nice job, Sony !

Slightly different with the old z2

Best omnibalance design to date. sony listened to the criticism of sharp corners and made the metal frame curved. smaller side bezels for better grip in one hand. big top and bottom bezel for comfortable grip in landscape mode, the design is much more seamless and minimalist/futuristic. the flaps are smaller and less in your face. the speakers are more in your face. rumors says pvd coating. bottom line: a winning design.

Correct!!!!

bigger bezels because its better to hold in landscape mode? Are you kidding? I haven't heard anyone complain about holding their phone in landscape mode ever. The bezels are just awful!! The phone is a lot bigger too. For me this is not a phone anymore. Its a phablet which is more like a tablet. I surely hope Z3 compact of z4 will be much smaller instead of those huge bezels.

If the camera of this phone lives up to it's full potential, then this will be the best smartphone of 2014.They should also improve the battery life of z2 to make it more better on this device.

What do you mean? The battery life is already the top dog

Sony will have my money again for the 5th time this year lol.

Really hate to see another Samsung arise, recycle a same design over and over again. Oh Sony, please, if you insist to use that again, at least reduce the top bottom bezel.

25. Amir1 unregistered

The top and bottom bezels are a must in order to: 1. keep the device profile slim. 2. give more comfortable grip in landscap mode. bottom line: top and bottom bezel with ultra slim side bezels (z3) = winning design. think before commenting.

Just take a look at the Xperia ZL, that is what Sony done before and what should have done on their upcoming flagship

I have to say..... you are incredible ignorant and stupid. top and bottom bezels is not needed. G3, S5 and a few others have made their phone slip without HUGE bezels. They have it because of front speakers. Think before commenting please. Worse thing is... you made the same statement at least twice and is incredible rude. When its obvious you have no idea what you are talking about other than defending something you THINK is right.
