Xperia Z3 CompactとiPhone 6、どっちがどう優秀か。使い倒して比べてみた
Xperia Z3 Compact and iPhone 6, Which is how excellent. I tried than to defeat use

Awake in alarm smartphone, check today's schedule, the smartphone that ...... Check the timetable of the train beyond the realm of "next to the skin using" become "skin itself" gadgets. You a hard time to get used to the operation, but once you get used same as the hands and feet. With glue that ...... or model I a strange successor machine can be used in the same sense also the time of, you or was co author has also transfer to the "iPhone from the iPhone".

However, Android smartphone, especially Japanese manufacturers If you are constantly evolving at a gallop in order along the expectations of people such as "Atarashiimonozuki" "multi-function-oriented", and take in hand suddenly the new model, Glatt to transfiguration that beyond recognition would come. Above all, Xperia Z3 Compact screen size (4.6 inches) of Sony, which also appeared in Japan this fall even for iPhone 6, would Sumaho that suggests that intense rivalry.

Sumaho select will "try to touch it" is fundamental. and if you want to do it on the actual hand and determines Kana ...... in the iPhone 6 "truly" also there "there?" is also there. Point to be may point and mind that it try using Xperia Z3 Compact also what days was found. Compared with the iPhone 6, and what about do me Xperia Z3 Compact? Actually as a user touches the two, I tried to consider from various angles.

Size Xperia Z3 Compact is that fits comfortably in the hand

Screen size is also the same in weight also Donpisha, Xperia Z3 Compact and iPhone 6, such as twins. However, it is separate from the impression of when to hand the actual equipment. Before iPhone 6 in which the liquid crystal becomes a 4 → 4.6 from the product of the iPhone 5S is, in large as also proportional to the size of the body. The only feeling is ingrained in the body in the app many years of association, such as Safari and Mail, thumb is difficult to reach in the upper right corner when you single hand? Sense of discomfort There is also little.

Xperia Z3 Compact remains of body size reminiscent of the iPhone 4, is the feeling that the liquid crystal is spread in 4.6-inch to 3.5-inch iPhone 4. By single hand only can cover every corner of the screen thumb, there is also a grip that it will not come out Suppo.

When the ruler of "nicely in hand", Xperia Z3 Compact might be one step ahead. Bottom in flat, Ryoyoko soft feel made of resin. Even for small women hand, it is the size of the safe.

If you say in terms of appearance, iPhone 6 with a reputation for the design, sophisticated form rounded indeed. The color variations Silver without change from iPhone 5S, Gold, in space gray of three different colors, basic and conservative tint tired does not come. And against, Xperia Z3 Compact is white, green, orange, four colors of black. Especially green and orange "water surface that shines refreshing" Each delicate have expressed the "vivid sunset reflected on the water surface" color is beautiful. Color preference is each person, but it is an attractive color tint that can claim the personality is available.

Camera and high-resolution playback

Probably Xperia if you choose the Android smartphone, a well-established Xperia Z3 series that at the forefront among you there. Xperia Z3 Compact is equipped with a "premium Random auto" shooting functions, such as a full-fledged digital camera, automatically determine the scene, you can take the time and effort rather than pretty pictures. It also supports camera shake correction.

In the case of iPhone 6, then you have a reputation in the balanced quality of balance, and I think better of iPhone 6 Some people look beautiful. Just Xperia Z3 Compact can be done also fine manual adjustment. In addition, since the Xperia Z3 Compact is compatible with ISO12800, dark and without a flash even in the room, take a few pictures of bright noise, there are strengths that. This point might be Sony unique is also the "camera manufacturer".
As the selling of iPhone 6 in camera-related enjoyment of video spread "time-lapse". The unique iPhone 6 be able to enjoy its unique movement with friends by market share in SNS.

It has become 1 weather, reproducibility of color in photographs taken in the two models. Xperia Z3 Compact to save in the real truth of color but, iPhone 6 seems to be equipped with initial settings to save color darker than the real thing. I am happy for those who contrast prefers a dark image. However you will not be able to return the color to that of the remains real. In terms of reproducibility would be tactics to Xperia Z3 Compact.

And, indeed cause groan with Walkman Sony Hi-Res (※) corresponding to the playback. On that can be played even without an external amplifier if there is a high-resolution sound source, there is also a function and noise canceling function that boosts the sound quality close to the hi-res even MP3 of Futsu, we Gunto pull the iPhone 6.

But, still high-resolution / noise-canceling headphones or speakers such as optional equipment is necessary. Since the built-in speakers are also up performance, I can enjoy the music well enough to be alone.
※ can be found in high resolution (high resolution) and high-resolution. It becomes granular sound information in a large amount of high-resolution source than CD, it is possible to express the realism with air feeling that can not be played on CD.

A "multi-functional" Xperia Z3 Compact

Let's look at the other functional aspects.
The characteristics of the iPhone 6 There is a fingerprint authentication. It is the wrong place to hit with it or when tracing the point you can hit the number, the lock can not be released at once when you want to open in a hurry, My God than everyone has experienced. In that respect, it is not annoying it is possible to unlock the smart one and only fingerprint.

For iPhone 6 is a global model, Xperia Z3 Compact is the impression that "the Galapagos in a good way." Yes Seg inherited from successive Xperia, there is also a mobile wallet feature that will not let go and use once, also is equipped to "gloves mode" that can be manipulated, leaving the gloves for the coming cold season. So more "waterproof", perfect to accompany the women of sitz bath. Delicate customization snuggled in Japan of infrastructure and living environment is a place is welcome. This is not parted anymore!

"Fingerprint authentication", "time-lapse" such as whether iPhone 6 that is installed in the global model, mobile wallet, hi-res music player, high-sensitivity camera, gloves mode such as Japan's Xperia or that we have continued to evolve to suit the user. Only to each attractive terminal, and try to comparison can be taken by the hand by all means, respectively, such as over-the-counter?
Xperia Z3 CompactとiPhone 6、どっちがどう優秀か。使い倒して比べてみた


しかし、Androidスマホ、特に日本のメーカーは「新しいもの好き」「多機能重視」といった人々の期待に沿うべく駆け足で改良を重ねていて、ふと新機種を手に取ると、見違える変貌にグラっと来てしまう。中でも、この秋に日本でも登場したソニーのXperia Z3 Compactは画面サイズ(4.6インチ)もiPhone 6に対して、強烈なライバル意識がうかがえるスマホでしょう。

スマホ選びは「触ってみること」が基本です。iPhone 6で決まりかな……と実際に手にしてみれば「さすが」もあり「あれ?」もあり。Xperia Z3 Compactも何日か使ってみることで良い点や気になる点が見つかりました。iPhone 6とくらべて、Xperia Z3 Compactってどうなんだろう? 実際に2つを触ったユーザーとして、様々な角度から検討してみました。

Xperia Z3 Compactは手にすっぽりと収まるサイズ

画面サイズも重さもドンピシャに同じで、双子のようなXperia Z3 CompactとiPhone 6。しかし、実機を手にすると別ものの印象です。前製品のiPhone 5Sから液晶が4→4.6となったiPhone 6は、本体のサイズも比例するように大型に。Safariやメールなどのアプリは長年の付き合いで感覚が体に染み付いてるだけに、片手持ちすると親指が右上に届きづらい?的な違和感も少しあり。

Xperia Z3 CompactはiPhone 4を思わせる本体サイズのまま、液晶がiPhone 4の3.5型から4.6型に広がった感じです。片手持ちして親指だけで画面の隅々までカバーでき、スッポ抜けないグリップ感もあります。

「手にしっくり」という物差しにすると、Xperia Z3 Compactが一歩リードかもしれません。底面もフラットで、両横はソフトな感触の樹脂製。手の小さい女性にとっても、安心のサイズです。

見た目の面で言うと、デザインに定評のあるiPhone 6、丸みを帯び洗練されたフォルムはさすが。カラーバリエーションはiPhone 5Sから変更なくシルバー、ゴールド、スペースグレイの3色展開で、飽きが来ないベーシックかつ保守的な色味。対し、Xperia Z3 Compact はホワイト、グリーン、オレンジ、ブラックの4色。特にグリーンとオレンジはそれぞれ「爽やかに光る水面」「鮮やかに水面に映る夕日」を表現していて繊細な色味が美しい。色の好みは人それぞれですが、個性を主張できる色味が用意されていることは魅力です。


Androidスマホを選ぶならXperiaでしょ、と定評のある中でも最先端に位置するXperia Z3シリーズ。Xperia Z3 Compactは「プレミアムおまかせオート」撮影機能を搭載しており、本格的なデジカメのように、自動的にシーンを判別して、手間なくキレイな写真を撮ることができます。手ブレ補正にも対応。

iPhone 6の場合、バランスの取れた画質には定評がありますし、iPhone 6の方がキレイに見えるひともいるかと思います。ただXperia Z3 Compactはマニュアルで細かな調整も行うことができます。またXperia Z3 Compact はISO12800に対応しているため、暗い室内でもフラッシュを使わず、明るくノイズの少ない写真が撮れる、という強みがあります。この点は「カメラメーカー」でもあるソニーならではかもしれません。
カメラ関連でのiPhone 6のウリとしては動画の楽しみ方が広がる「タイムラプス」。SNSでシェアして友人同士でその独特な動きを楽しむことができるのはiPhone 6ならでは。

1点気になるのが、2機種で撮った写真における色味の再現性。Xperia Z3 Compactは実物ありのままの色味で保存しますが、iPhone 6は実物よりも色味濃く保存する初期設定が備わっているようです。コントラストが濃い画像を好む方には嬉しいですね。ただし色味を実物ままのものに戻すことは出来ません。再現性の点ではXperia Z3 Compactに軍配でしょう。

そして、さすがウォークマンのソニーと唸らせるのがハイレゾ(※)再生への対応。ハイレゾ音源があれば外付けアンプなしでも再生できる上に、フツーのMP3でもハイレゾに近い音質に引き上げる機能やノイズキャンセリング機能もあり、iPhone 6をぐんと引き離しています。

※ハイレゾとはハイレゾリューション(高解像度)のこと。 CDよりも情報量の多いハイレゾ音源ではきめ細やかな音になり、CDでは再生できない空気感と臨場感を表現する事ができる。

「多機能」なXperia Z3 Compact

iPhone 6の特徴としては指紋認証があります。番号を打ったり点をなぞったりするとつい打つ場所を間違えて、急いで開きたいときに1回でロックが解除できない、なんてことは誰しもが経験しているのでは。その点、唯一無二の指紋でスマートにロック解除できるので煩わしくありません。

グローバルモデルであるiPhone 6に対して、Xperia Z3 Compactは「いい意味でガラパゴス」という印象です。歴代Xperiaから受け継いだワンセグあり、一度使うと手放せなくなるおサイフケータイ機能もあり、これからの寒い季節に手袋をしたまま操作できる「手ぶくろモード」までも搭載。さらに「防水」なので、女性の半身浴のお供にも最適。日本のインフラや住環境に寄り添った細やかなカスタマイズが有難いところです。これはもう手放せない!

グローバルモデルで「指紋認証」「タイムラプス」などが搭載されているiPhone 6か、おサイフケータイ・ハイレゾ音楽プレーヤー・高感度カメラ・手袋モードなど日本のユーザーに合わせて進化を続けてきたXperiaか。それぞれ魅力ある端末だけに、ぜひそれぞれ店頭などで手に取って比較してみては?

隆盛スマホゲーム  その歴史と現実は?

隆盛スマホゲーム  その歴史と現実は?
Prosperity Sumahogemu its history and reality?

Sales of about 880% over the previous year - November 7, 2014, mixi, which operates a social network service "mixi" announced the quarterly consolidated results of. But, surprise of voice uncannily from the market in this figure did not rise. Already, because the number of downloads extension of Sumahogemu "Monster Strike" to lead this strong performance had been told.

Performance of SNS "mixi" that the world by storm a few years ago is not wielded as ever even now. On the other hand 2013 "monster Strike" was released later in the fall, stock prices of mixi continued to stop high, finally market capitalization ballooned up to 450 billion yen to be a beginning of more than 20 times. Mixi was even 100 billion yen stand a market capitalization immediately after the listing. One of the game between only one year, he a "mixi" which became until a social phenomenon has created a value far in excess.

As in this "monster Strike", the one of the game alter rattle the performance of companies, it is not uncommon anymore in the world of Sumahogemu. For example, the Gung Ho, which was released a popular app "Puzzle & Dragons", in a year of 2012, operating income has ballooned to eight times close to the previous year. Market capitalization is more April of the following year is to reach 1 trillion yen, I called a big topic. In the other, KLab and that the performance was V-shaped recovery in the music game "Love Live", such as like the GUMI that TSE First Section was announced the other day, performance is greatly in a short period of time by the enormous profits to bring the game department has changed.

Why this much Sumahogemu lucrative. And heck, or industry of the that appeared in what holds. Not the day you do not want to see in now TV CM, Let tease the history of this game genre.

Whether Sumahogemu of Japan came from where

That was the prototype of the game who called Sumahogemu, it is has been played in a previous smart phone "social games". Became and its revolutionary will, appeared of the Glee of SNS operators from the second half of 2010 went gimmick in earnest, social game play is centered on card collection (hereinafter referred to as "card type") is.

Often, what is talked about as the origin of the history of social games, but such as "Mafia Wars" and "Farm Ville" of Japanese reading (Zynga) that the game company that has been prevalent in Facebook to around 2009. Certainly in the Japan of the dawn, such as user named influenced by these "Kaito Royale" is grow their own fields of games and "farm Hokkorina" compete for treasure game has become a hot topic. The name "social game" is with respect to the accompanying billing game to SNS was Tsukawaredashi in Japan also, it is from this time. However, here, referred to as "play by collecting Card", there is no definitive features of a social game later.

In hell, whether it came from where -. The first game, has been referred to as the "Dragon Collection" that Konami has issued in September 2010. However, most of the where-used that technique, actually in the world of "Avatar service" which has made its own development in Japan, had just those already had been tried long.

The avatar service and is created on the Internet, "virtual space" is a service to play to own their characters that the user called avatars. Service "Hangame" of NHN Japan was the largest in this field in the 2000s, provides a game using the avatar to the user in the basic free, the revenue from billing to items such as clothing and weapons used by the avatar obtained had. Align the rare items in the lottery of expensive billing and "Konpugacha", to create a new item and avatar by coalescence of two items include "synthetic", refinement of the technique to link this to the revenue had begun. In fact, before DeNA and GREE also full-scale entry into the social game, we have been avatar service, such as "Mobage Town" and "Kurinoppe". Ties with Hangame about the game but was not strong, these techniques are not in any way that operators such as Glee has invented all in one night.

At that time, from technique Hangame is the prototype of the current social games, has not been disclosed to or had gained much of the profit. However, Japan's listed companies such as Gree and DeNA is, when this was developed in conjunction with the full-fledged game at that time of the mobile phone, the height of its profitability became clear within immediately. For example, glee from around the end of 2010 by changing cut most of the self-developed game "card type", CM of idol group TOKIO is going to launch a stretch offensive, etc. became the topic "Dorirando". As a result, market capitalization was more than a temporary 600 billion yen.

Dissemination of powerful business model that this "card type" what is, is a factor that history was dictated subsequent social game. At that time, also said that profit margin is 40% with 50%, many of the net operators wearing an eye on the height of its profit margin. Under the influence of the Lehman shock at the time, advertising revenue that has supported the web business until it was a time to continue to decline. So, they are had been participating in the social game in this "card type".

"Pazudora" as a symbol of the smartphone transition

As a platform for placing the social game, Gree and DeNA flourish. Not only those of our own development, other companies and games and that was jointly developed, it is of went put such also actively competitors of the original game. In addition, from this time, even now spate of social game of the famous manga and anime, social game in a corner of when deploying content in multiple media began to sit.

Its the middle to happened is, is was widely reported in the mass media "Konpugacha" problem. Consumer Agency has questioned the "Konpugacha" an increase in complaints and inquiries to the background of the high claim, he is in May 2012 came out a formal opinion of the Premiums and Representations Act violation. However, even at the closing briefing of DeNA and GREE at the time, it is not the estimated increase its influence. Led to DeNA announced significant sales and profit growth at the closing of immediately after, it was maintained still sales and profit growth in the next quarterly results.

However, presence of Gree and DeNA from this time is fading big. Big shift had occurred in the industrial structure level in this period - ie, because the migration of the mobile phone to smartphone began.

Platform operators in the Internet browser of Glee and DeNA is, we are deprived of new customers to the app store, such as the App Store and Android Market smartphone operators. On the other hand, in order to allow the game with high expressive power in app expertise existing gaming industry has accumulated began to say things. Thereby, room for developers and maker of the game industry born to play an active role was greatly expanded.

This forces to symbolize the change of the map, which is a popular online game "Ragnarok Online" Gung Ho apps that we have worked on such as "Puzzle & Dragons". After the advent of February 2012, in the midst of criticism of Glee and DeNA gather in Konpugacha problem, this game is going to rapidly gained popularity. The following year in 2013 the market capitalization of Gung Ho was more than 1 trillion yen. What is just one development company Gung Ho is than had pulled far the market capitalization of the platform operators such as Gree and DeNA. On the other hand, for example glee but was going to actively the original games development of rich route to this time, noticeable hit could not get one also.

Advanced game property and enrichment

Sometimes operators hated the notoriety that went from this time to the designation of "social game", was increasingly referred to as Sumahogemu. However, the basic skeleton remains of the era of the "card type" to raise revenue in the Free-to-play. But, that "Pazudora" has taken the game element in the battle of the "card type", had a great impact on the current flow.

The first place, and how does that game is the "card type". The basic pattern is, while fostering the of his hand of characters who card, is that going down one after another the enemy coming appeared in the dungeon of a single road. Flexible move or branch, such as in the home for the game, almost no. Therefore, once the social game had been ridiculed as "Pochipochige". It is because the flow Press Pochipochi intently button the text of the scene that the enemy appeared to fight is only of time accounted for the majority. But, Pazudora, even while following the route of this "card type", was the attack part in mini-games. Specifically, although it to attack the opponent by erase to match the same color of the sphere, the puzzle part of the game company unique had reached the fun and operation of the level to enjoy independently as such a game . Other companies also now imitate this technique, go born blockbuster such as "Wiz Witch and black cat" of Koropura that attack to answer quiz.

In addition, from about the same time as the transition to the app, the enrichment of the game itself has progressed. Currently, to go the most ahead of the flow, is Koropura came out this spring "white cat project". Screen and narrative reminiscent of a traditional action-RPG is a popular secret. And, in recent years, new work of Hironobu Sakaguchi was the producer of the popular RPG "Final Fantasy" series "Terra Battle" has attracted attention. Such a game is, it can be said that while riding in the business model to bring the enormous wealth of the "card type", to pursue a high game of, is a work that was challenged in an attempt to increase the game user satisfaction.

Mature markets of "excess supply"

Current Sumahogemu have entered the mature market. However, it is so to speak, social game that has arisen from quite close to the it was a kind of web service "avatar service" is, is also the result was transformed and entered the era of application to a "game".

In fact, former social game development is, by the time being issued a game that personnel of a few people have made, and that foster while watching the user's reaction, was a mainstream style that good at Internet companies such as Facebook. But If you do not already crowded make thoroughly at the time of sale start in the current, it is not uttered a user veteran, it is not uncommon for the development budget will reach 100 million units. In addition, in order to stand out in the app market, also advertising expenses that can be invested in banner ads on the TV CM and web, now require a huge budget. Already be compared with the portable games such as PSP, budget scale basis risk is has become little more than the market.

In, platform operators such as Gree and DeNA is, what are verb. In fact, sales scale itself from the platform business, is surprisingly flat. However, compared to the application market, it can not help said impression on the media are faded securely. As DeNA as a whole of the strategy companies have announced expansion into new areas such as genetic testing services, seek to the next has begun.

On the other hand, Gung Ho, which became the champion of Sumahogemu was announced that in the previous quarter financial results "Pazudora" is in the "sales profits". In answer to an interview with the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, with indications that the Gung Ho Morishita president Suma Ho game market is in the "obvious oversupply", while "novelty is lost from the technique of centering the card training" card type "it is answered that there ". "Monsuto" also of Mixi which was picked up at the beginning, also announced another app that was a match play in the main early, you are taken to the new deployment.

It becomes huge industry within just a few years, Sumahogemu market that has entered a phase of mature markets. Leading operators among them, have welcomed a quiet new phase this year.
隆盛スマホゲーム  その歴史と現実は?







 しばしば、ソーシャルゲームの歴史の起源として語られるのは、2009年頃にFacebookで流行していた日本語読み(Zynga)というゲーム会社の『Mafia Wars』や『Farm Ville』などだ。確かに日本の黎明期には、これらに影響を受けた『怪盗ロワイヤル』というユーザーが宝を奪い合うゲームや『農園ホッコリーナ』という自分の畑を育てるゲームなどが話題になった。SNSに付随した課金ゲームに対して「ソーシャルゲーム」という名称が日本で使われだしたのも、この頃からである。しかし、ここには、「カードを収集して遊ぶ」という、後のソーシャルゲームの決定的な特徴がない。


 アバターサービスとは、インターネット上に作り上げた「仮想空間」に、ユーザーがアバターと呼ばれる自分のキャラクターを所有して遊ぶサービスである。2000年代にこの分野の最大手であったNHN Japanのサービス「ハンゲーム」は、アバターを使ったゲームを基本無料でユーザーに提供し、アバターの使用する服や武器などのアイテムへの課金から収益を得ていた。高額課金のくじ引きで珍しいアイテムを揃えられる「コンプガチャ」や、二つのアイテムの合体によって新しいアイテムやアバターを作る「合成」などがあり、これを収益に結びつける手法の洗練が始まっていた。実際、DeNAとグリーもソーシャルゲームに本格参入する前に、「モバゲータウン」や「クリノッペ」などのアバターサービスを行っている。ハンゲームほどゲームとの結びつきは強くなかったが、これらの手法は決してグリーのような事業者が一夜にして全て発明したものではない。












 また、アプリへの移行とほぼ同時期から、ゲームそのもののリッチ化が進行した。現在、その流れの最も先を行くのが、コロプラが今春に出した『白猫プロジェクト』である。従来のアクションRPGを思わせる画面と物語性が人気の秘密だ。そして、最近では、人気RPG「ファイナルファンタジー」シリーズの製作者であった坂口博信の新作『Terra Battle』が注目を集めている。こうしたゲームは、「カード型」の莫大な富をもたらすビジネスモデルに乗りながら、高いゲーム性を追求し、ゲームユーザーの満足度を上げる試みに挑戦した作品であると言える。
