Sony Xperia Z3 Plus – Slimmer, Lighter, Faster

Sony Xperia Z3 Plus

The Sony Xperia Z3 Plus is slimmer than ever at just 6.9 mm, and incredibly light in your hand. In fact, if it wasn’t so nice to look at, you could almost forget you were holding it.

Sony Xperia Z3 Plus boasts a 5.2-inch display with 1,080×1,920 pixels IPS display. Measuring 146.3×71.9mm, the smartphone has a thickness of 6.9mm. Weighing 144g, it is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor that combines one 2GHz quad-core processor, one 1.5GHz quad-core processor along with an Adreno 430 GPU.

Crafted from premium materials and carrying Sony’s latest and greatest technologies, the Xperia Z3+ still seems like more of a minor spec bump from the previous Xperia Z3 and not a full-fledged successor, but that doesn’t make it a bad phone.
