Sony Xperia Z3 Hong Kong

The Sony Xperia Z3 is a smartphone that's incredibly slim and powerful. It's svelte design and amazingly slim dimensions hides a powerful set of hardware that's top of the line during its launch. It also has a smaller variant called the Xperia Z3 Compact for those who prefer smaller smartphones.

Impossibly Slim and Intuitively Designed

The Xperia Z3 is made impossibly slim, and follows Sony's design language of squared candy-bar styled smartphones. Its gorgeous tempered glass front and back is conjoined by a subtly curved aluminum frame which fits in the palm. The power and volume buttons are placed on the side of the phone for a more natural fit; the power button is uniquely designed to be unlike any other – you'll instinctively know it’s the power button.

The Xperia Z3 also follows through with Sony's style of making the smartphone waterproof and dust-resistant with an IP65/68 rating. Go ahead, take a bath or dive with the phone – it'll accompany you, don't worry.

Worry-Free Battery Life

The Xperia Z3 has an amazing battery life, as per Sony's amazing innovations. The Xperia Z3 is rated to have up to two days of battery life. This will allow you to do more things on your smartphone without the worry of running out of juice halfway.

It's not all about large battery capacities, but it’s the software optimization and technology that Sony puts into their smartphones that allows for this amazing battery life. Forgetting your charger or even your power bank won't be such a large issue anymore with an Xperia Z3.

Capture The Greatest Moments

The Sony Xperia Z3 has an excellent 20.7 megapixel camera that utilizes Sony's own camera sensor. It has the capability to capture fantastic photographs that are sharp and concise, replicating all of the natural colors and lights. It also performs well under lowlight with an immensely high ISO sensitivity of ISO 12800.

The camera utilizes a 25mm wide lens that gets more of the scene in without compromises, letting you capture more. You can also capture video in 4K resolution; capturing every little detail in high resolution that's four times Full HD 1080p.
