sam666, 03 Feb 2016is it worth to buy this phone in 2016?
sorry for my english.No doubt the phone is excellent value for money.
But, it was launched in 2014. Android N not coming. Also being old, repairs will be a problem. Will be very difficult to get parts depending on where you are. No fingerprint sensor, which is default on new devices.
My recommendation -> don't buy it now. Go for a new compact.
It's the best phone among phones I've used but parts can't be found. Please I am a Ghanaian and need the screen of Sony xperia X3 compact.
It's the best smartphone I've ever used. I've got an iPhone 6S,a xiomi redmi note 3(snapdragon version 650),an xperia z1compact,a htc one A9,an iPhone 4S and a LG G5.Among all of me phones my z3compact is the best. Who says it ain't waterproof ? Ergonomically speaking it's the bestest phone in my collection .
What a shame that z3 and z3 compact won't receive Nougat 7.0 update.

This is a great phone. It did all the way on Camino de Santiago with me during rain an sun in dust and mud. Pictures are great, the batery lasted long. No scratch nothing wrong so .... it's my first sony phone and I have only great experience with it.
Dear gsmarena, it's widely known that after Lollipop update, battery life on many devices ( including excellent Z3 Compact) has dropped significantly. I've clearly felt it on my Z3C. Why wouldn't you retest this and may be some other interesting in terms of battery life devices to provide readers with more accurate and practical numbers? It seems no resource around did that and information about battery life is badly outdated and based on KitKat version of Android.

I was wondering how long do you have the phone and how are you satisfited with the build quallity since it's all plastic phone does it scratch easily on the front and back panel?
I love my z3 compact, especially the faster charging speed and the long lasting stamina while using non stop.
Had it for just over 8 months now, suddenly got that headphone or mini jack problem I read about. I'm getting mine repaired and possibly sold.......no, wait.... definitely sold... bye Sony.
Rhett, 21 Nov 2014You can adjust the screen calibration on the z3 screen... Not a problem on me xperia z3 compact so far and it's over a year old.
