Description

Right off the bat, the new Sony Xperia Z3+ looks very much like the Sony Xperia Z3, down to the 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. Inside, though, Sony has opted to go ahead and power the device with the 64-bit Snapdragon 810 SoC which features an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside. The rear camera is the same 20.7MP snapper employed on the Xperia Z3 (still no OIS) but the front camera has been bumped from 2MP to 5MP in order to take better selfies. Sony has trimmed the sails on the battery, choosing to enlist a 2900mAh juicer rather than the 3100mAh cell that powered the Xperia Z3. But the smaller battery allowed Sony to cut the thickness of the phone to a svelte 6.9mm from 7.3mm.

      IP certified - The IP code indicates the degree of protection against dust and water. The first number represents dust protection, while the second represents water protection. In IP67, for example, 6 means a completely dust-tight device, while 7 means the device can stay immersed in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. In IP68, a higher level of water protection is expected, but exact numbers aren't specified: both depth and continuance are specified by the manufacturer on per device basis.

  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 424 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
