Sony Xperia Z3v

Sony Xperia Z3v Information:

Sony Xperia Z3v is Verizon version of the new Sony Xperia Z3 came out after six months to replace the Xperia Z2 - it was needed to keep up with the Samsungs, LGs and HTCs.  This was the first flagship Sony in a long time that was released to come out in the U.S. on a major network (T-Mobile) on time.  A short while later we spied another version sneaking through approval - the Xperia Z3v is being launched exclusively on Verizon sometime by the end of the year.

The Xperia Z3v is basically the Z3 - a beautiful glass and metal device, rounded edges and easy to hold.  It sports a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution.  It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, although there is a microSD card slot to allow you an additional 128GB of internal storage.  The normal Xperia Z3 has a 3100mAh battery, but the Z3v opted for a larger 3200mAh battery for a little extra power.

The main camera remains 20.7MP, however, the Z3v will use a 27mm wide-angle rather than the 25mm used on the original Z3.  The Xperia Z3v has the IP 65/68 certification for dust and water resistance and will come with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. It can also be used as a PS4 Remote Play device. It measures 146 x 72 x 7.3mm and and it weighs in at 152 grams.

The new Sony Xperia Z3v, destined for Verizon only, should be ready for sale by the end of the year.  It has a few differences than the the original version, but is a true flagship device with a great look and feel with enough power to glide through any operation. It has a terrific camera and should provide great pictures and because it is IP 65/68 certified dust and water resistant, you can even take a few snapshots or shot a video under the water. The device may be too large for some, but it is an excellent smartphone to use as your main device.
