Sony has been rather quick in replacing their flagship devices with a new successor with its bi-annual upgrade process. But the manufacturer gets full points from us for always coming with few of the best devices out there, and top notch hardware and laid-back software design. At IFA this year, Sony unveiled the Xperia Z3 for the first time along with its smaller sibling the Z3 Compact, and the Tablet z3 Compact; and these came with updated versions of the trademark Sony apps.
So, the new Sony Xperia Z3 has a new launcher which continues on the beaten path followed by Sony’s signature user interface, along with a new set of custom widgets. We for one, really liked the new stock Clock widgets which came with it. Many of you, Sony and non-Sony users alike, might have liked it and hoped to get your hands on it. Well it seems you won’t have to wait that long since XDA recognised themer Ben Ling has come up with all the goodies for a direct download. You really don’t need to worry about compatibility as there are ports which work on most devices running Android 4.1 Jellybean or higher although Kitkat is recommended.
