Making a smart phone stand out in a crowded market is an inconvenient job, even for famous players such as Sony.
The company Xperia brand went into its 10th year in 2018, and the latest addition of the KSZ3 device to the line. Sonny opposed a popular trend in the newest leading market, choosing to evolve rather than to revolutionize – but is it good to make a modest approach?
Design and display
The latest Ksperia, KSZ2, you can easily make a mistake with KSZ3, because the design is almost identical, unless the edges are more curved, and the latest Samsung Galaki S headphones.
This definitely gives a sleek look and it is comfortable to hold and use on the one hand – something is difficult to find with many great smartphones that have become commonplace today.
However, the elegance is emptied with the glass glass material, which is even more pronounced on the black headphones.
At 9.9mm, the KSZ3 is slightly thinner than 11.1mm KSZ2 and weighs 5g and now is 193g, but it does not go far enough to remove the density of the phone.
The back is still largely identical to its predecessor, including an uncomfortable positioning of the fingerprint sensor in the center.
Sony's energy-saving function and durable soap is its stunning OLED display, using its power as a TV producer with the Bravia range. The 6in 2160 × 1080 screen offers striking colors and one of the darkest blacks that you find on a smartphone, making it ideal for watching movies or motion pictures on the go.
Most KSZ3 hardware is the same as before, with the same Kualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip set and 4GB of RAM for handling the phone's speed.
Despite a reasonable specification sheet, the phone does not work as smoothly as you hope, especially if you have multiple applications in the background.
Side Sense, a feature that allows you to touch one page to display your most commonly used apps and shortcuts, is a great addition, but damaged by accidental add-ons – you can also turn it off well.
Sony also lacks the opportunity to upgrade its rear camera, keeping its 19-megapixel snapper. Although photos still look decent but do not coat other Android devices, such as Google's pixel phones and OnePlus 6T.
Strange, Sonny decided to focus on the camera facing the front, and absorb it to 13 megapixels, so you can definitely notice the difference in your selfi.
Sony successfully maintains an initial price of 699 pounds – increasing the tendency to increase every time as other phone manufacturers – but unfortunately, the KSZ3 carries a synchronization with its predecessor instead of striving better.
If you are looking for something with a beautiful screen for watching movies, look for the right place, because the screen is simply the only new and valuable part of the KSZ3.
The shape of the phone is excellent for holding in one hand, but again, relax for the great weight.
Maybe it's time for Son to go through a series of revolutions, not keeping the security of evolution.– Press Association
