Xperia Z3v Verizon_5Earlier this week Sony Mobile and Verizon announced the Xperia Z3v. The device itself is very interesting, being the first Sony Xperia device to feature embedded Qi wireless charging and using a mixture of hardware from the Xperia Z3 (chipset, IP rating) and Xperia Z2 (battery, camera).

The design itself is closer to the Xperia Z2 than the Xperia Z3, although one could even argue that it looks like a cross between the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z, which is no bad thing. At the time of announcement, there weren’t many press pictures. However, we’ve now got you covered below. Let us know how you find the design compared to the Xperia Z3 and older Xperia Z flagship devices.

    nice one!

  • phil g

    Nice looking device, minus the Verizon branding on the front and back.

  • Malik Shahid Farooq aWaN

    Great

  • Hussain Quadri

    Looks exactly like the chinese variant of the Xperia Z2!

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    It’s just.. Mind blower.

    *still waiting that goddamn xperia Z3 32gb international model.

    Yes, I hate root.

    I bought playstation vita from second hand two days ago. Im writing it just to let you know :) i think i enjoy it mostly by playing sotn, but getting other games also ;)

  • I like how people complain that Sony doesn’t release their phones in the US, but when they do, they complain about the carrier branding.

  • xperiaDROID

    You know, it’s like Sony told them “Hey Americanos, so you want our latest flagship? Here, take this shit. You guys won’t buy it anyways.” LOL jk.

    Jokes aside, this weird design is because of Verizon, they love to ruin the original design of the phone, just like the Verizon LG G2.

  • JHMBB2

    I’m not sure it’s American’s complaining, we pretty much expect this. Verizon is known to sticker bomb their phones with their logo.

  • Btw is that red messaging app next to the phone app meant to replace the stock Sony sms app for verizon users? Is it a verizon sms app or something?

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    Loool man,
    “Hey Americanos, so you want our latest flagship? Here, take this shit”

    I laughing as hard as I can!
    :-D

    Vita is the most underrated console, 3DS is totally suck hardware wise. In a perfect world, Monster Hunter 4(G) is on Vita and it’s totally kick 3DS a**. Too bad, Capcom ruined the perfect portable MH: better graphics, controls and trophies.

  • Faisal Armand

    The side profile is a reminiscent of the original Xperia Z

  • FermentedDischarge

    How can you hate something that does more good than bad?

  • Bastiaan van Oossanen

    But looking at the pictures of this Sony Xperia Z3v I miss the option to connect my magnetic USB charge cable.

  • Danny

    Verizon is offering both Black and White, 32GB, Wireless Charging and accessories like PS4 Dualshock Controller strap. What is T-Mobile offering? Black only 32GB, no news on accessories bundle. Many hoping for Z3 Compact, this would add brownie points for T-Mobile if they offer the Z3 Compact. but no news.
    T-Mobile USA is shocked into silence by how Verizon is marketing the Z3v. about the logo, just buy a case to cover it up.

  • Nah. Just Verizon.

  • XxRampage07xX

    That Verizion logo just ruins the Z3v’s beauty -_-
    Well, it’s too bad though. To me, it is the best looking phone on the market :D

  • Guest

    Don’t know why Sony would say, “Hey Americans take this shit” knowing that they won’t buy it. We all know the Sony needs all the sales they can get.

  • TechGuyChris

    You guys all have it wrong. The carriers pay them extra to have their logo all over their phones. Those are called advertising spots… That’s why if you look at the phone and compare it to the orgininal model its replaced with Sony in both spots and xperia in the other. The maker of the phone pitches this to them and charges them for it. Apple however prefers to keep all branding to themselves however and doesn’t make its phones available for stamping carrier logos all over it.

  • lol

    now verizon uses sim card?, I thought they were CDMA ?

  • xperia z with a z3 inside?

  • chris

    Tmobile version looks better!

  • InspectorGadget80

    It makes it looks hideous. only verizon would put more logos on a phone than any other carrier

  • Emil Oskarsson

    How can anyone hate root?

  • B@D €NGLI$H

    Me and many people complain a lot about XPERIA flagship phone’s camera, I think Sony can do much better than this but NO, they didn’t!

    I use Xperia S then Xperia Z then Xperia Z Ultra and now Xperia Z3 and it proves that Sony never changes, Sony still stuck with the same shit camera, Z3 is everything great except its own camera(yup! Camera Apps are so cool whatever) I’m so disappointed.

    I have no idea why, Sony is very expert about camera, their Cyber-shot RX, alpha NEX, HandyCam are fucking cool and Sony still make camera sensor for Nikon and phone maker like Apple, Samsung they’re also use Sony’s camera sensor but Why Sony Xperia Z series, thier own smartphone, have very suck camera than those competitors, suckest auto mode!

    Pictures of Camera from Samsung Galaxy S5,  Galaxy Note 4 and iPhone 6 are much much better than Xperia Z3!!!

    the big disappointed ever! I love Sony very much but look like Sony isn’t sincere with their fans/costumers

    I’ll wait android flagships phone from Nokia next year, Nokia is coming back in the game!!!

    Still love Sony whatever!

  • Wolf0491

    Whether it looks awful compared to regular Z3 or not I hope Verizon advertises it well and gets a decent a mount sold to start the momentum over here for Sony phones. Just got my Z3 6633 unlocked and using it on ATT. Loving it.

  • tinawoods085

    This is a classy phone design is very attractive http://sparrowsurf.com/recommends/hidemyip/

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    I love the way they are.
    I just won’t root a device before even they reach their End of life.
    Watching official updates is always fun for me. :-)

    Well this is my personal taste.. :-)

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    I can.. I hate un-official..
    My personal taste again..
    My bad.
    :-D

  • cesar suarez

    Recycle all unsold z2 = Z3v

  • RbbrDcky

    Finally! Someone who actually see the big picture!

  • Faisal Armand

    You’re exactly the same as me, bro!

  • TechGuyChris

    Its not Verizon. Sony pitches this to them to make more money. Those are called advertising spots… Verizon or any carrier foe that matter doesn’t force them to do it.

  • JHMBB2

    Oh OK, interesting. It’s pathetic looking either way

  • TechGuyChris

    I agree

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    For me this is the perfect Xperia Z.
    Z2 specifications and Z design. Beautiful.

  • Luís Alberto Pérez

    I didn’t notice that before saw your comment. That’s real bad not to be able to charge the phone with the magnetic charger or dock.

  • spade

    I think Verizon choose Xperia Z2 design because the front stereo speakers placement, you know they can’t slap their logo on Xperia Z3(they could if they had made the logo smaller, but they didn’t and won’t *LOL*), so they picked Xperia Z2 with Xperia Z3’s SoC.. Anyway this is a win win situation for Verizon for bigger logo(credit to huge bezels) and the unsold Xperia Z2.. XD

    /S

  • spade

    Nope, i think that due to the front stereo speakers placement, Verizon couldn’t slap their logo on it :P

  • Fynjy7771

    As to me, stereo speakers like in Z2 are much better looking then in international Z3.

  • mark

    There is nothing wrong with branding but Verizon overdoes it. Why can’t they be like tmobile and put the branding in only the back? What makes Sony phones so desirable is their aesthetic appeal.

  • hi

    China Mobile version Z2 + Qi charging = Z3v

  • Jamie West

    Z3v has wireless charging. Burn your cables

  • Bastiaan van Oossanen

    As far as I know you can only charge wireless at home and mayby in your car. So it is of no use without a car or homecharger when you are out walking.

  • i used experia and it was one of the best phone i ever had http://phonedetectivehub.com/
