Sony Xperia Z3 Full Specification

Xperia Z3 is the smartphone that does more and goes further – whether further is a run in the rain or a dive into the pool on a sunny summer holiday. With the highest waterproof rating*, you can find your way in a downpour, take pictures underwater or just wipe off your phone after an unexpected spill. Combined with a super-slim body and aluminium frame, Xperia Z3 is the Android smartphone that teams durability with beauty.
