The Sony Xperia XZ3 is the Anti-2018 Smartphone

We’re starting to hear rumors and see leaks of the Sony Xperia XZ4, but the Sony Xperia XZ3 is still kicking. The Xperia XZ3 bucked a lot of the big design trends of 2018. It doesn’t have a notch or hole punch display, the bezels on the top and bottom are still pretty big, it has a traditional fingerprint scanner on the rear, etc. Our friends at Pocketnow published a video review of the Xperia XZ3 and they call it the “Anti-2018” smartphone. Do you agree?
