    Dive straight in with the Sony Xperia Z3

    The Xperia Z3 takes things to a whole new level. With the highest waterproof rating, you can take pictures and videos underwater. So take your phone with you when you go for a dip. It's water resistant up to 1.5m, and can stay wet for up to 30 minutes.

    Go for longer with a two day battery

    Even with so many features to choose from, you don't have to worry about the Z3's battery life. The 3100 mAh battery gives you up to 16 hours of talk time, up to 920 hours standby time, up to 130 hours of music listening and up to 10 hours of video playback. And with Stamina mode, you can keep your Z3 going for up to two days without a charge. So you can do everything you want, without worrying about running out of power.

    Take great pictures in any light with the 20.7 megapixel camera

    The Xperia Z3's 25mm wide angle lens means you can take clear photos in any light condition. With Sony Exmor RS for mobile sensor, plus the first ISO 12800 in a smartphone, even if you're in the dark, your pictures won't be. The Z3 has a 20.7 megapixel back camera with auto focus and a 2.2 megapixel front facing camera. The main camera features 8x digital zoom and with HDR for photos and videos you can get even clearer shots. And the range of Sony camera apps and features make it even better. Use SteadyShot for image and video stabilisation. Timeshift puts the camera into burst mode, capturing 30 shots in just two seconds. Superior Auto automatically picks the best setting for the photo you're trying to take. With geo-tagging you can add location information to your photos. And object tracking locks focus on a specific object. Plus with 4K video recording, you can relive the memories again and again. And when you're done, you can look back at all your photos and watch your movies in great detail on the bright, 5.2 inch, full HD triluminos display.

    Looks good, sounds great

    With a slim, aluminium frame, the Z3 isn't just packed with clever features, it looks smart as well. At just 7.5mm thick, and weighing 152 grams, it will slide comfortably into your pocket. The Z3 is powered by Android 4.4, KitKat, the latest Android operating system, and runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. And to give you the best music experience, it uses High-Resolution Audio and Digital Noise Cancelling technology, so you can listen to all your favourite songs, loud and clear.

    Transfer your old content with ease

    If you're switching to the Sony Xperia Z3, you can easily transfer data from iPhone, Windows or Android. So you don't have to worry about losing all your contacts, photos, videos, or anything else you want to move over onto your Z3. Xperia Transfer makes switching easy, and you even get an Xperia Transfer cable in the box.

    Log your life with Xperia Z3 and Sony SmartBand

    Pair your Xperia Z3 with a Sony SmartBand and you'll be able to track all your training and social activities. The Lifelog app lets you log all your movements for the day, and play them back on your Z3 when you get home.

    Play your PS4 games anywhere in the house

    With Remote Play, you can stream your PS4 onto your Sony Xperia Z3. There's no need to fight over the TV, just carry on playing your games on your smartphone. Your PS4 and your Xperia Z3 both need to be connected to the same wifi network, and you'll need a Dualshock 4 wireless controller to make the most of Remote Play.
