Sony Xperia Z3 Philippines : The Much Awaited Upgrade

Fits Like a Glove

The Sony Xperia Z3 sports a 5.2” screen with a body that’s as thin as 7.3mm. Despite having a screen that’s already at the border of the phablet territory, the phone’s design gives it a compact feel to the hand – it’s very easy to get a grip on. Walking around with this phone in hand will feel naturally easy as if it were the back of your hand.

PS4 Played Right from Your Phone

Enjoy a complete gaming experience with your Playstation 4 and Sony Xperia Z3! Play conveniently anywhere you want in your home – kitchen, toilet, balcony, or basement. This is now possible with Sony Xperia Z3’s Remote Play. Simply have your Playstation 4 and Xperia Z3 connected to your home network via Wifi, then run the Remote Play app on your Z3. It’s that easy. The Remote Play app is an exclusive app made for Sony Xperia Z3 and later models.

IP68 Certification

Ingress Protection better known as IP is a measure used to determine a device’s ability to keep dust, water, and powder-like objects from entering its internal system. 6 and 8 are the highest ratings given by far where 6 means 6ft in depth and 8 is the number of hours exposed to talc. So, that means, this phone can withstand being submerged in water up to 6 feet for an hour. On the other hand, it can keep circulating talc from entering its insides for 8 hours. This certification simply suggests that the Xperia Z3 that the phone has an enhanced version of its water and dust proofing.

Bigger Battery

One of the most pleasing upgrade that this phone has shown is its battery capacity. The Z3 carries a 3,100 mAh battery – a considerable huge amount of juice for a 5-inch smartphone. The battery will surely hold the phone longer than you need it to before another charge, especially with the aid of the phone’s power saving mode (STAMINA), this phone will be a perfect buddy to bring with your outdoors or indoor, anywhere where performance is needed
