From z1 to z3 or iphone 6?

Hi all,

first of all no hate intended here. I just want to know what will be the pros and cons if I choose the iphone 6 over the z3 and vice versa. I know that z4 is already coming out soon but I wanted to change my daily driver. I've used all Sony's flagships since 2010 and just skipped z2 and z3 since both are minor updates only in processing power

Will it be wise to jump to ip6 or just get the z3 instead? any opinions? Thanks a lot.

Simple answer, get the Z3 or wait for the Z4. 

 

A bit more objective answer. 

 

Go to the store and compare both phones, how they feel on your hand, camera, screen, weight, etc.

Re: From z1 to z3 or iphone 6?

Sorry but iPhone 6 is an insult to the sheep that bought it,
750p screen in the age of 1440p coming through
Low ram
A cpu that is almost guaranteed to be slow in 2 years.
Limited Bluetooth and nfc usage.
And at the highest price?

I think the last android flagship to be released with a comparable screen was galaxy s3!
Unless of course you go with the plus, which like for like is kicked to crap by android 1440p phablets for less money.

@Rickard has posted this before

We forwarded this internally for more information some time ago and the information i got is that Z3 Compact does support Quick Charge 2.0. The following Xperia devices supports Quick Charge 2.0:

Xperia™ Z3 CompactXperia™ Z3 Tablet CompactXperia™ Z2 TabletXperia™ Z3 (only Japanese variants SO-01G, SOL26 and 401SO)Xperia™ Z2 (only Japanese variant SO-03F)

Of our docking stations, only DK48 supports it.

 

But i don't have any Quick Charge 2.0 charger so i haven't been able to test how much faster it will charge.

So the magnetic charging dock that comes with the z3 will not utilize the quick charge if the charger itself is not a quick charger right? So the charger inside the box is just a normal one?

It's a regular charger.
