Sony says the Xperia E3 offers the same great battery life of the Z3 and Z3 Compact
As our tests from last month have shown, Sony’s Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact both offer record battery life in their respective categories (see here and here). As it turns out, the more affordable Xperia E3 is also a battery champ: according to Sony, the E3 “matches the same two day battery life standards” of the Z3 couple.

Of course, the Xperia E3 doesn’t have a power-hungry processor, and neither a high-resolution display, but at the same time its battery capacity is smaller (2330 mAh).

Sony started selling the Xperia E3 last month, asking about $200 for it. The handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and has four color versions: black, white, yellow, and copper (though it isn’t widely available yet). The E3 sports a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, further featuring LTE connectivity, a 5 MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, and 1 GB of RAM. There’s only 4 GB of internal memory, but, thankfully, you can use a microSD card to get extra storage space.

We’ll probably review the Xperia E3 in the near future, so check back if you want to find out more about it and its battery.
