Sony just announced the Xperia Z3 during the IFA 2014 trade show in Berlin. You must be wondering how it stacks up to the other flagship smartphones that are out there. Well, for one, Sony is promising one of the best cameras it has ever placed in a smartphone, which means it should give other phones like the G3 a run for their competition.

Additionally, it offers even more resistance to dust, and the same rating for water resistance as its predecessors. You’ll find a re-designed body, a thinner profile and Android 4.4 KitKat on the Xperia Z3, but what about the rest of the hardware, and how does it stack up to the G3? We’re here to answer that question with the spec tables.

Check out the comparison of the Z3 vs. G3 below.
