The Xperia Z3 is still one of the best smartphones of 2014, offering a sleek water-resistant design and solid specs. It comes equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 20.7-megapixel camera and a 3100mAh battery. Meanwhile, the Z3 Compact Tablet packs an 8-inch 1920 × 1200-pixel display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 4500mAh battery and a water-resistant design.
Of course, buying a premium device unlocked and off-contract means it won’t come cheap. The Xperia Z3 will cost you $679.99 with 16GB of storage on Sony’s website, while the Z3 Tablet Compact starts at $499.99. For those prices you might want to consider the new Nexus lineup from Google instead, which offer faster processors and newer software at a lower price.
