  • maybe best not to take closeup photos with tons of dirt and grime

  • VXIII

    The camera lens is creepy. Why are you looking at me like that ?

  • Raj Singh

    Amazing engineering prowess…
    Don’t need to see the guy’s dead skin and dust though… maybe give it a blow like it was a Nintendo cartridge.

  • Faisal Armand

    Note 4 camera isn’t as good as Z3/Z3C camera, look

  • Niels d. G.

    Sorry, tried to clean it as good as I could. :P

  • Doubleyoupee

    Very nice.
    You can see the dead skin cells :P

  • Niels d. G.

    Some more: closer-up of a touch grid intersection thingy, more pixels, and screen-off pixels.

  • Raj Singh

    Who cares?

  • Faisal Armand

    At least 10 people who upvoted does.

    Btw, any Z or Z1 users here who have used the phone for 1+ years feel confident about submerging their 1 year old phone into water? And I’m not just talking about rinsing it under water, but FULLY submerging your device.

    Reason i’m asking this cause I also not sure how much I can trust the flaps waterproofness of my Z3 after a year LOL

    I’m still use the Xperia v(late 2012 flagship), pretty much everyday it gets soaked, dunked, and rinsed by me, still works like a charm

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    I have a Tablet Z and my sis has a ZR for a year plus now. It’s been fully submerged for god know how many times. No problems occurred.

  • Baston

    Some of the parts used have a cheap look . Also the power button on Z1, Z2 it’s great when it’s new, after some months of use it turns black … cheap parts tough.

    Don’t you know about a compressed air can?

    pixel off?

    Nenhuma LCD consegue desligar os pixels…

  • Niels d. G.

    The picture was taken when the screen was off, using high exposure to make the dark pixels visible.

    I had Xperia Z from 01 March 2013, after using 1 year, I gave it to my brother. A few days ago, the phone unfortunately was dropped into a river. After searching for about 5 minutes, it was found. Everything was fine. Nothing happened to it. The phone is about 20 months old.

    My Z broke underwater after nine months of use. Water entered around the home button, I guess the rubber seal under it suffered from the heat during summer. Result: Phone completely broken, but fortunately Sony support replaced it.

    Stick with my z1 or upgrade to the z3?

    I bought Z1 6 month ago, i think stick with your Z1. Z3 is probably aiming at Z user and other people switching from Samsung or Apple, not for Z1 or Z2 yet.

  • Kafi

    I am confused about xperia Z3C vs Z2. Both same price. All benchmarks showing Z3C superior then Z2. What do you think guys?

  • Rob

    Yeah, that’d be great for the speaker membrane.. Totally worth destroying it for that perfect picture.

  • Rob

    One is compact, the other is not. Screw the benchmarks, get the phone that feels good to use.

  • Rob

    I’d consider it an upgrade from the Z1, but that doesn’t mean I’d replace the Z1 after only having it for 6 months.

  • CuriousPanda

    Wow! How’d you get Sony to replace a water damaged phone? From what I understand, water damage isn’t covered under warranty. Care to share? =)

  • arcwindz

    Errr, i know this is xperia blog and i own sony myself, but i think the comparison is unfair. Note 4 should be in 8mp too rather than the cropped 16 mp.

  • xperiafan324

    Wouldn’t make a difference unless you use a 3rd party camera app. As far as I know, samsung use supersampling, so using 8MP samples for Note 4 will only reduce the FOV and won’t improve the quality.
    Other than that, the comparison is justified in the sense that these are the “default” resolutions for each phone’s camera app (which let’s be honest, most never bother to change).

  • xperiafan324

    *doesn’t use supersampling

  • Faisal Armand

    Downscaling note 4 to 8MP is no use, it still loses to Z3

  • peyeumstein

    they’re 118 including me now. Eventho this post wouldnt affect note 4 or iphone6 sales..

  • Raj Singh

    You and at least 33/39 people care that Faisal thinks the Note 4 camera isn’t as good as the Z3/Z3C?

  • Raj Singh

    That’s awesome that you and 117 others care that Faisal thinks the Note 4 camera isn’t as good as the Z3/Z3C even though that statement is based on personal feelings, tastes, or opinions.

    My point is that cameras on high-end mobile devices, including the Note 4 and Xperia Z3, are really nice, both of them, and you’ll have really nice pictures regardless of which one you choose. Bringing the Note 4 into this conversation when we’re inspecting a close up of the Z3 Compact is a bit lame.

    nice meme pic Mr. Singh :) +1
