The Xperia Z3 is the third installment in Sony's Z-series, crafted with an IP65/68-certified (waterproof and dust-tight) 7.3-inch casing. Sticking to its multimedia-oriented roots, the Z3 comes with PS4 support, enabling you to use a standard PS4 controller when playing games -- with PlayStation certification to boot. It sports a 20.7-megapixel rear camera equipped with Sony's Exmor image sensor, enabled for 4K video recording. The Z3's performance also skirts the premiums, running on a 2.5GHz quad-core engine, Adreno 330 graphics, a 3GB RAM and a pretty hefty 3100mAh battery power.

Also known as: Sony Xperia Z-3, Sony D6603, Sony D6653.
