Sony says the Xperia Z3 provides the ultimate smartphone viewing experience
posted by Florin T. / Sep 12, 2014, 8:20 PM
Sony intends to launch its brand new Xperia Z3 flagship smartphone before the end of this month, and, until then, the company is restlessly showcasing the handset’s capabilities whenever and wherever it can. Earlier today, we posted a list of Z3 features that you may have not known about. Not long after that, Sony uploaded a promo video - embedded below - according to which the Z3 can provide “the ultimate smartphone viewing experience, even in bright sunlight.”
As mentioned many times before, the new Xperia flagship sports a 5.2-inch IPS TRILUMINOS display with 1080 x 1920 pixels. It’s not too different from the screen of the Xperia Z2, but its brightness has been enhanced. This, alongside Sony’s intuitive contrast adjustment, seemingly makes the screen the best that the company has ever put in a smartphone.
Just like the Z3 Compact, the Xperia Z3 can already be pre-ordered in various European markets. Needless to say, the smartphone doesn’t come cheap: you’ll have to shed out €649 to order one. The Z3 will also be available in the US, where T-Mobile expects to start selling it sometime this fall.

I still remember how Sony advertised blah blah blah about their Triluminos display on Xperia Z1. Result? It's one of the most disgusting flagship recently Sony kept praised about about the Z2 screen. Ok it's good and much better than Z1. But still not on par other competitor in color reproduction, viewing angle and outdoor visibility.

But Z1 Compact did very well, and Z2 also followed with good results... and according to GSMArena, the Z3 Compact reviewed had an improved screen with a lot better sunlight readability and better colors and contrast all around In my opinion Amoled tech has gotten so good that regular LCD with IPS has no advantage over it... but Xperia's display has never bothered me, not even the bad viewing angles (since I watch my phone perpendicularly) Z3 Compact will be the best device to get this year if you like this screen size, specially with the best battery life ever reviewed for its size on GSMArena with an endurance rating of 101 hrs!!... if you like phablets, then the Note 4 is the other one to get....

I'ma current user of Z2 and if my opinion mean anything, let me say that the maximum brightness has never been a big issue but THE problem is the minimum brightness, which is far too bright to read in the dark. I hope Sony do something about it.

I'll pass on that washed out, saturated mess. Not even user-adjustable white points will help that because of the other set in stone factory calibrations that go into comprising the display.

Sony was bad with phonescreens until z ultra. But saying b0that its bad on tvs? You probably never seen the hx905? No "full led" tv can compare from the brands you are naming after that they made the hx920 and hx950 each better than it predecessor. Also the hx850 edge led even beats up all the tvs only the beovision 7 did it a bit better. The w9 serie is even better. The only thing is you should always calibrate the tvs depending on the place its in. And samsung/lg/philips are the same tvs only different designs

Samsung phones never have washed out colors.... On the other sony phones for years have washed out displays.... It's fact....i was hoping for big change with Triluminos display...yeah it was better...but still not in level with competition..... If you want saturated colors why not use amoled instead if tweaking hell out of LCD....

Yeah, that's why I wondered why he mentioned washed out there. Look at HTC One M8 display, now that's what washed out is. S5 is over saturated and rather cartoonish. Z2 has the most brilliant display till date. Go do your research.

This triluminous display looks too saturated to me actually. Their tv's on the other hand have the best calibration out of the box next to Panasonic but once you professionally calibrate an LG or Samsung tv it's game over for Sony.

I admit Sony could not have the best panels for smartphones but since Z2 most reviewers and I, personally, owning one, agree Sony has improved the quality of the display to meet today's standards. AMOLED displays have the sharpest viewing angles in business in comparison to any LCD panel, that's for sure, and of course if you are looking to see your content at a 90 degree angle then Samsung should have you covered. About color reproduction, most review sites that make serious measures say the Z2 has the best color calibration compared to GS5, One M8 and iPhone 5S. Sony should not be dismissed anymore as a decrepit OEM that is just trying because now Sony is truly delivering.
