This phone really does look gorgeous, just wish they'd taken the opportunity to throw an 805 in there, make the change for people like me (current Note 3 owner) worthwhile in some aspects.

After reading about the pretty average (in some cases rubbish) camera, even without the bootloader issue, I think I'll scratch this phone off the list.

I haven't read anything that has said the camera is bad or even average?

The z2 camera was a really nice camera and this is only improved software wise I thought.

iirc the camera also has a wider 25mm wide-angle lens, and also a higher ISO (12800 iirc). It may not be the best camera around but it will certainly be closer the top than the bottom cameras around.

Does anyone know if the the models being sold by Spark have the noise cancellation headphones in them or not? Reading GSM Arenas review the model they reviewed was bundled with Sony's MDR-NC31E Digital Noise Cancelling headset.

We have 3 different Sony Xperia Z3 family threads which despite their respective original specific topics, all ended up as general discussions for a particular model so I have done some tidying up.

I see on Spark, if you preorder the Z3 and get in fast enough, you get a bonus PS4. It's limited to the first 35 customers though.

Think I missed out on the PS4, if only I checked my mail :P

Interested to see what the Sony store "free gift" will be.

What kind of smartwatch? If it's a 2, I bet it's just to get rid of them.
