In the newest Xperia there are all the most important communication and connectivity modules. It supports LTE of the cat. 18, there is a dual-channel Wi-Fi in the 802.11b/g/n/ac standard, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and navigation modules (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO i BEIDOU). In addition there is accelerometer, gyroscope and a USB-C socket for charging and data transfer.
Of course there is a strong support for other product of the Japanese manufacturer – the PS4 console. Because there is the PlayStation 4 Remote Play function. We just need to install an appropriate app.
As you could have expected from the Sony’s flagship, the quality of voice calls is great – I heard my interlocutors loud and clear and they heard me as well. The sensor was the only problem – during calls the smartphone unlocked sometimes and it happened that I turned on some functions with my cheek or my ear, like muting the call or even accidentally ending it.
Memory and efficiency
Sony Xperia XZ3 offers 64GB of internal memory for files and apps – in practice we are left with around 49.3GB after turning the phone for the first time. In addition we can enhance it with a microSD card – the slot working in the hybrid solution can use drives of a maximum capacity of 512GB.
The model that is supposed to be a flagship one, cannot stand from its competition when it comes to the efficiency. Xperia XZ3 has Snapdragon 845, Adreno 630 GPU, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory – though this hardware ensures a fast and a smooth work, it leaves us unsatisfied. These are not quantities that could impress us in the highest price shelf – smartphones from the premium class can offer the same numbers. I expected something more from a flagship… If we will just consider numbers, a better set of parameters can be offered by Pocophone F1, which costs twice less than XZ3... Still, the smartphone from Sony is fast, it works smoothly and it can handle even most demanding games an apps – so we cannot complain. It scores high in benchmarks – though of course how it works everyday has a bigger meaning. The smartphone has no problems with multitasking, it does not heat up, there are no lags or slow-downs.
