Hands on: Sony Xperia E3 review

by Gareth Beavis |
HDR mode in the 5MP camera is a welcome addition, and although the snaps I took were nowhere near the brightness and quality of the Z range, they weren't terrible.
The Omnibalance design makes an appearance again, and the bezels above and below the screen are a chunky as ever.
