Weekend poll: Sony Xperia Z3 vs. HTC One (M8) vs. Samsung Galaxy S5 vs. LG G3

In this week’s poll, we get a little break from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and concentrate on the Sony Xperia Z3, which we reviewed earlier this week. We are pitting it against its main Android rivals: the HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5 and LG G3.

The Sony Xperia Z3 stands tall with its superb waterproof skills under its IP68 certification allowing it to dive below 1 meters of depth for over 30 minutes. It’s also lighter and a bit more compact than its predecessor and comes with a new design, so the outcome of this poll is going to be interesting.

First up, we place the HTC One (M8) against the Xperia Z3 in a battle of two of the prettiest phones out there. The One (M8) features stereo speakers, but that’s something the Xperia Z3 matches. Sony is has the upper hand with the 20.7MP camera on the Xperia Z3 compared to the 4MP UltraPixel shooter of the One (M8). In terms of chipset performance, the two are on par, which makes this particular poll even more interesting.

The next match brings the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the boxing ring. The other waterproof flagship is not quite as pretty, but has the upper edge in functionality thanks to its fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor.

Finally, the slim bezel LG G3 has just slightly larger dimensions than the Xperia Z3 while managing to pack a 5.5″ QHD display. The Xperia Z3′s 1080p 5.2″ IPS LCD is no match for this monster, but the G3 has no water protection nor is as pretty as the Sony flagship.

You have one week to post your votes and we’ll share the results with you the next weekend. Happy voting!
