It is equipped with A8 chip, Touch ID, faster 4G LTE wireless connection function, 8-megapixel iSight camera with Focus Pixels, running the newest iOS 8 that was released also in September (on 17th).

2. Xperia Z3: thinner and compact, waterproof, dustproof, capable of shooting 4K video
The Z series of Sony flagship smartphone is divided into basic and compact forms. Mounted with a magnetic charging cable slot and micro SD/USB charging terminal, the dimension of Sony Xperia Z3 is 146x72x7.3 mm, which is much smoother than Xperia Z2. Whipping straight out by 20.7MP "Exmor RS" CMOS sensor, it makes shooting a 4K video possible. Using the Timeshift video, it applies slow motion to any particular part of the recording, letting you shoot in 120 frames per second at 720p resolution and select scenes to slow the playback speed. In addition, the background defocus, AR effect and digital noise cancelling technology earn a high score for it. It is also compatible with high-resolution playback of sound source, but only when you output to a USB DAC, such as a micro-USB port. The following is the table listing the detailed specs between Apple iPhone 6/iPhone 6 Plus and Sony Xperia Z3/Z3 Compact.
