Samsung Galaxy S6 vs Sony Xperia Z3: Final Verdict

The main disadvantage of the Xperia Z3 is that a processor, which is not even near as fast as the S6’s, powers it. The Snapdragon 801 of the Xperia Z3 still does not disappoint. The Xperia phone has a brilliant camera, which takes detailed shots, but it still is of a lower quality when compared to the Galaxy S6’s camera.

Except these few, there are not many weaknesses in the Xperia Z3, in fact it beats the S6 in few areas, like the sealed flaps that covers the ports, making it water- and dust-resistant. The presence of a microSD slot. In addition, the battery life is amazing.

And the fact that the Sony Xperia Z3 will cost you considerably less than the Galaxy S6 makes it a Smartphone you can totally get over the pricier Samsung Galaxy S6.
