Reviews Word on the street

Xperia Z3  vs OnePlus

Alternatively, you can eschew Android altogether, and take a dive in the iOS pool, as the new iPhone 6 now comes with a much larger display than before, thinner body, improved camera, Apple Pay, and is a better value-keeper, for roughly the same price as the Z3, though you'd have to wave goodbye to the waterproof wrapper, record battery life, and the stereo speakers of the Z3.
