Sony Xperia XZ3 brings out the big guns to challenge the Galaxy S9


Sony is one of those phone makers that gets lost in the shadow of the iPhone and Galaxy phones. But its latest, the Xperia XZ3 wants to be in it to win it at least compared with the Galaxy S9.

The super size, super powered, superpricy handset comes in swinging, with specs you’d want to see on any high-end phone. You’ve got a 6-inch screen, a 19-megapixel camera setup (single lens, like the Galaxy S9), waterproofing and wireless charging, an amenity you don’t often see outside Samsung phones. Google’s latest OS, Android Pie, runs the software show, and the whole phone is backed by Qualcomm’s brawny Snapdragon 845 chipset.
