    I've got the Verizon Xperia Z3v, you've got questions. Fire away!-xperia-z3v.jpg

    Hey, folks. So I've been using the Xperia Z3v for a week now. Perhaps you've already read my review. (If you haven't, start there. It'll answer a lot.) And now you've got questions. Fire 'em at me here, and I'll answer 'em!

    How is the sound quality compared to the other Z3? I ask because the speakers are positioned differently

    Can you confirm that the camera in the z3v is the lens setup from the z2, rather than that of the z3? That's how it looks from the spec reports I've seen. Not that there's a HUGE difference, but it's there nonetheless.

    Not sure yet — need to pick up a T-Mobile one soon as I can. But I was pretty impressed. Not as good as M8, but better than most anything else I've used. Only annoyance was the way it reverberates through the back.

    Reading the review would be a great place to start with that. But both are really good.

    Dunno. But I was plenty impressed by the camera. Just have to wade through the settings and get a good feel for it.

    Did you test out the waterproofing at all? I'm very intrigued by the idea of having a waterproof phone that I don't have to worry about being stuck in the rain outside.

    Yep. Not much to say. Make sure all the covers are closed and get it wet. That's not really that much of a novelty anymore — if you've seen one phone under water, you've seen them all — but it's a nice feature to have.

    Gotcha, thanks. My fiancee has the z2, and the camera is really outstanding once you get a feel for it, like you mentioned. Was just curious since the z3 has a little bit of improvement in low-light and a wider-angle lens (27 instead of 25mm? don't remember). Just trying to see what makes this a z3 instead of a z2 for VZ other than the 200mhz bump in cpu clock speed.

    GS5 is more enjoyable to hold and use, I think, but that might just be me being unfamiliar with the Xperia line. There's a lot to like in this phone. It's just that the design was so boring. :-/

    Yep. Hopefully that'll give enough time to get the carrier stuff figured out.

    Once you have it all setup are you going to post your screen shot on the sticky?
