Xperia Z2 vs Z3 vs Z4: Can You Spot the Difference?

Sony officially unveiled the Xperia Z4 about a week ago. It is their newest flagship smartphone, but from the Japanese press release that came with the announcement, it seems like there’s just been a few upgrades from its predecessors. We placed the Z4’s revealed specs beside the Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z3 — can you spot their differences?

It seems like a bump in the processing aspect is the biggest upgrade we can see in Sony’s new flagship phone. From the major specs, screen size remained the same as well as the amount of RAM installed in the device.

The company’s 20.7-megapixel camera has also been retained. It’s understandable, though, since Sony’s Exmor R sensor already produces crisp images with natural colors thanks to its BIONZ image processing engine. Also, front camera has been improved to 5.1 megapixels.

If we were to ask you, will these new upgrades be enough to persuade you to get one when it comes here in the Philippines? As of now the Xperia Z4 is only exclusive to Japan, but stay tuned as we wait for any news regarding its possible local launch.

    they’re being lazy – and they’re the company who said outright that they’re having difficulty making a mark in the smartphone market. where’s the effort to improve? to catch a larger share of the market? at least samsung stepped up it’s game, you can’t deny that.
