Comparisson review

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has a global score of 8.77, which is a bit better than the Xperia Z3's 8.74 global score. These phones come with Android OS, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has newer 5.0 version while Xperia Z3 has Android 4.4.4, so it provides a couple additional features and performance enhancements. Even being the best in this comparisson, we must tell that it is also a heavier and somewhat thicker phone.

Xperia Z3 features a little sharper screen than Galaxy Note 4, although it has a little worse screen pixel density, a quite smaller screen and a way worse resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The Galaxy Note 4 counts with a bit better performance than Xperia Z3, and although they both have the same RAM memory amount and a Quad-Core CPU, the Galaxy Note 4 also has a faster 500 MHz graphics processing unit.

The Xperia Z3 shoots a little bit better videos and photos than Galaxy Note 4, and although they both have the same video frame rates and the same 3840x2160 (4K) video quality, the Xperia Z3 also has a bigger aperture to capture better low-light photography and videos, a larger sensor taking higher quality photographs and a much higher resolution camera.

The Sony Xperia Z3's storage capacity for apps and games is just as good as the Galaxy Note 4 one, both have equal internal storage capacity and a SD extension slot that holds a maximum of 128 GB. The Sony Xperia Z3 has just a little bit longer battery performance than Galaxy Note 4, although it has just 3100mAh battery capacity instead of 3220mAh.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 not only is the best phones in this comparisson, but it's also cheaper.
