Review: Sony Xperia Z3 – The Best Android Smartphone of 2014?

When Sony introduced the original Xperia Z smartphone to the world, it also introduced a manufacturing and philosophical shift in its flagship smartphone strategy: to have a six-month cycle for its Z series of flagship Android smartphones. As a result, since the Xperia Z debuted at CES 2013, we’ve now got four Z-series smartphones in under two years: the Z, Z1, Z2 and now the Xperia Z3.

The company’s faced some pretty harsh criticism over this move, as many consumers feel that they are being short-changed for buying a premium smartphone that’s only going to be a flagship for six months. But since using both the Xperia Z2 and the Z3 almost back-to-back, I’m beginning to see some semblance of logic in Sony’s apparent madness.

Somewhat reluctantly, Apple quickly announced the new iPad mini 3 shortly after announcing the iPad Air 2. The new smaller iPad received very little on-stage time unlike the new iPad Air and the new iMac with Retina Display, and it is likely due to the lack of proper hardware improvements over last year’s iPad mini with Retina Display.

Nokia’s HERE Maps is one of the most solid alternatives to Google Maps, and provides one advantage that even Google Maps still struggles to offer: offline maps and turn-by-turn navigation. After Nokia’s mobile division was acquired by Microsoft, HERE remained part of Nokia, where it was then free to pursue development of HERE for Android.

Apple making a large-screen smartphone? You must be joking.

But this isn’t Steve Jobs’ Apple any more. This is Tim Cook’s Apple, a company that’s more open to feedback from its users, instead of one that makes you believe its one phone is the best phone you’ll ever get…until the next year, when the new iPhone is the best phone you’ll ever get.

Now, there’s a choice. Last year there were the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s; it wasn’t a difficult decision the last time. For 2014, there’s the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, a huge 5.5-inch phablet catered for those yearning for a big iOS-running smartphone that can do everything.
