PhoneArena just tested the new upcoming phone by Sony, the Xperia Z3. Xperia Z3 is a battery powerhouse packs a total of 9 hour 29 minutes in the small sized battery. As pointed out in the original post, the phone itself takes almost 4 hours to charge it completely.
Xperia Z3 is yet to be launched to general consumers, but it seems it will be out in the last week of this month(September 2014) around the world. I didn’t know that it was coming out, possibly many of us would not know that it was coming out. Many of the reddit users have pointed out that it is maybe because of Sony not investing as much as Samsung and Apple in marketing of their products.
Anyways, now you know that Xperia Z3 is coming out and just as before Sony has consistently given out a good battery life in its smartphones. The battery benchmark conducted by PhoneArena is by running a custom web-script, designed to replicate the power consumption of typical real-life usage.
This test has put Xperia Z3 ahead of every other phone and many phablets too, including Huawei Ascend Mate7 which has also over 9 hours of battery life in the same benchmark test. Seems that they’ve focused heavily on maintaining consistency in battery life. Put on a lower resolution screen but sharp enough to save the battery. The slow charger, to improve long term battery life.
Seems like they figured out the aspects of phone usage that users end up caring about in practice. Good way of retaining brand loyalty, even if it’s not as immediately marketable as bigger competition such as Apple and Samsung.
Smartphone buyers need to know that what is shown in your daily soap and movies are advertised to be there, the real smartphones who perform far more better are there in the market. Do your research before buying a smartphone. A battery life which last much lesser is very much annoying than the soothing beauty of the phone.
