The Xperia Z3 is the latest super phone from Sony, and although it looks a lot like its predecessor, there are enough internal updates to make us want to buy one. It also looks gorgeous, but the metal frame is prone to picking up small dents or chips when dropped, and if you’re really unlucky, one or both the panes of glass could crack.
Why take the risk? Check out these cool Xperia Z3 cases and guard against disaster.
Sony Style Cover Window ($65)
This clever, official Sony cover offers basic protection front and back. The front incorporates a window to access some phone features, such as music player controls, incoming messages, and the camera. You can actually configure exactly what it does when opened and closed, by downloading specialist widgets and apps. It’s a slim cover with a premium feel and it has accurate cut-outs so you can still use the ports, including the magnetic charging system, and features like NFC – all with the case on. In addition to the turquoise and copper colors pictured it also comes in black and white.
You don’t need to break the bank to get a basic layer of protection. Ten bucks will get you one of these malleable, easy to fit TU cases from Cruzerlite. There are openings for all the ports and buttons except for the microSD and SIM card flap. The circuit design with the Android mascot on the back looks cool, plus it’s slightly translucent so you can still see the Sony logo, and the wide variety of colors mean you shouldn’t be stuck for choice.
If you demand a case with a svelte profile then you’ll appreciate this one from Case Mate. It is extremely slim and comes in plain black or clear varieties. There are precise cut-outs for the camera, ports, and buttons, as well as a bezel on the front to protect the screen if it’s placed face down. It is a very minimal case, but there is protection on all the corners, and it will safeguard the glass back against scratches.
Incipio PlexFolio Case ($30)
A polycarbonate shell keeps your Xperia Z3 safe and a fake leather cover wraps around folio style. The cover can also be folded back to act as a landscape stand. The inside is lined with soft microfiber to keep the screen clean and scratch-free. There are cut-outs for most of the ports, the controls, and the camera; but it’s not going to work with the magnetic charging port. It’s a slim solution, but you get pretty decent all-round protection.
