Sony Xperia XZ3/sony-xperia-xz3
A well-designed phone having Bravia OLED display and one of the best video recording capabilities among its peers, the Sony Xperia XZ3 might just be what Sony needed to resurrect themselves.
Sony is a formidable force in the Tech industry. The Japanese giant’s TVs and cameras have been prominent bestsellers in their respective industries, and its high-end headphones have always been highly recommended.
They have not been able to replicate this success across the board though. In a crowded and supposedly saturated smartphone market, Sony’s flagships have been lackluster at best but have failed to make a significant impact. With the Xperia XZ3, Sony endeavors to make some brilliant strides forward. The introduction of the Bravia OLED screen in the Xperia XZ3 is just one of the many things. For the first time since long, we’re convinced they might be onto something incredible with the inclusion of this new feature.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 Black – 64GB (6GB RAM) is priced at Rs.72,900. It comes with a 6.0-inch Curved Bravia P-OLED capacitive touchscreen display with 1440 x 2880 pixels at 537 PPI (pixels per inch). This flagship is powered by Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 Octa-core processor and comes with 4/6GB RAM. It also has 32/64 gigs of internal storage that can be expanded up to 512GB with a microSD card. The phone runs Android 8.1 and a 3060mAh non-removable battery. It measures 158 x 73 x 9.9 mm and weighs 193gm. Further, it also houses an 19 MP primary camera on the rear and a 13 MP front shooter for selfies.

The phone comes with a great 6.0-inch Curved Bravia OLED capacitive touchscreen display and has good 4K HDR video recording capabilities.
The Sony Xperia XZ3 comes with its shortcomings though, with not having the best camera in the market being one of the more prominent ones.
