Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Comparison

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Comparison

By Rich W Woods Let me say this: I have never been a fan of Samsung phones. Anyone who knows me and anyone who follows For the Love of Tech knows it. Last year, I reviewed the Galaxy Note 4 and it was titled A Perversion of Innovation. A few weeks later, I reviewed the Galaxy Note Edge, which was called Samsung Makes the Note 4 Worse. Imagine my shock when I was absolutely delighted…

HTC Desire 820 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I’m almost done putting the HTC Desire 820 through the rounds for the camera comparisons. You may have noticed that I’ve been focusing more on the HTC Desire 820 instead of the Microsoft Lumia 535 and the Amazon Fire Phone. That’s because I have to give this one back. HTC and Sony both make great smart phone cameras; however, they do it in different ways. HTC saturates the image, using their…

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact vs Nexus 6 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods It is the smallest flagship on the market against the largest. Why not? The truth is that I don’t have my Sony Xperia Z3 review unit anymore so we’re going to have to use the Xperia Z3 Compact. For camera comparison purposes, it won’t make a difference. I have been living with the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 for a little over a week now. It is the first time…

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods For all of the flaws that come with the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, there are two things that it’s great at: the display and the camera. This is true of all Samsung devices. Sony is not too shabby on the camera front either with their 20.7 MP camera that they ship in their flagships. I had wanted to do this comparison with the Sony Xperia Z3, as I’m sure there will…

Nokia Lumia Icon vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia Icon vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods When Microsoft sent me the Nokia Lumia 830 to review, I also requested a Nokia Lumia 930 so I could compare the camera to a couple other phones, including the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, considering that they both have 20 MP cameras. They didn’t have any Lumia 930s, but they has a Lumia Icon, the 930’s CDMA sister phone. The Nokia Lumia Icon still has not received the Lumia Cyan update,…

Nokia Lumia 830 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 830 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods When Microsoft first announced Nokia’s first ever affordable flagship, I was skeptical. After all, it uses the same Snapdragon 400 processor as the Nokia Lumia 635. In case you don’t know much about smart phone processors, Snapdragon 400 is the low end of the mid-range; however, the more I use the Nokia Lumia 830, the more impressed I am with it. As with all new review units that come in, I’ve…

Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Does Size Matter?

Sony Xperia Z3 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact: Does Size Matter?

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, the Sony Xperia Z3v was made available on Verizon. On October 29, the Sony Xperia Z3 will be made available on T-Mobile. Somehow, in all that, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is lost. Although there is an unlocked version available from Sony’s web site, it won’t be available from any carriers and that’s the reason why Sony has never really taken off in the United States. After spending the last…

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison: Apples and Androids

By Rich W Woods I have been spending a lot of time with the Sony Xperia Z3 and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact as of late. They are both a pleasure to use. In fact, I’ve developed a bit of a preference for the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. While I intend to compare the Sony Xperia Z3, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to all of the competing phones that…
