Samsung Galaxy A3 is slowly making its way into the markets worldwide, along with the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, which has been available already since a few months. Samsung sure does work on high-end devices. But in the past year we’ve come to know it also had some good developments on the low to mid-ranged smartphones in the second half of 2014. Similarly, Sony keeps a good balance in all their low-mid-high range Android phones.
Samsung Galaxy A3 and Sony Xperia Z3 Compact are two of the best examples with great specifications and an impressive design. Both devices are awesome and we love both of them. Expect a camera sample comparison soon as well. Let’s take a look at our comparison between both for these Android phones.
Samsung Galaxy A3 vs Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
Samsung Galaxy A3:
First of, Samsung Galaxy A3. A mid-ranged phone that contains all the basic necessities for normal everyday use. Lets take a look under the hood. Galaxy A3 contains Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 which is fairly good for average use and a Snapdragon 410 chip-set along with 1.5GB of RAM which is also not bad. The 4.5 inched screen has a not so good screen resolution but Super AMOLED plus makes a lot better of a display.What a normal user wants is a good camera. Which Samsung Galaxy A3 fulfills very greatly. It has a better than average camera i.e. 8mp and shoots in 720p also it has a good front facing for your awesome selfies a 5mp just enough to please you. Besides that, it has both 3G and 4G LTE support which is we think a very good addition as for today slow data connection is worst then no data connection.
Sony Xperia Z3 Comapct:
What bad does it has if a mobile with good specification also fits in your pocket? Samsung Galaxy A3 and Z3 Compact share almost the same screen size. Xperia Z3 Compact is a bit larger, it’s 4.6 inches in size. Yes, it does has a better display than the Galaxy A3, not only has more PPI, 319 (A3 has 245 PPI) but also has an HD screen, which the Samsung Galaxy A3 doesn’t. Sony has come up with a new trend in the Z series. That is making their phones water-proof. Sony Xperia Z3 Compact also is a waterproof device and not only that, it holds the record for the best waterproof rating among other waterproof devices. that’s not it, Z3 Compact has other things to boast too. Let’s start with the camera. It has an amazing camera – 20.7 megapixels 5248 х 3936 pixels camera which also records 2K videos. Amazing, eh? Next, it comes with a Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 and Snapdragon 801 which is much better than the Snapdragon 410 in the Samsung Galaxy A3. Not to forget, the epic design of the Z3 Compact leaves just the best impression of class and elegance it ever could.
Let’s just face the truth, Xperia Z3 Compact easily wins this battle in almost every way possible. It has a better design, a better camera, a better CPU, is waterproof and has a better screen. Price wise, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is slightly higher than the Samsung Galaxy A3, but that is completely justified with the high specifications you get with the phone. Samsung Galaxy A3 is a full metal phone with an extremely beautiful design, but that still doesn’t beat the Xperia Z3 Compact in our opinion — just because of the overall technical specifications. Yes it is a little expensive than the Samsung Galaxy A3, but it sure does gives you an premium, elegant, comfortable and satisfying experience.
