some peapole handel their phones nicely, for them it is a good thing. But i see your point
Abhimanyu29, 12 Sep 2014GSMArena's photo comparison tool says Z3 Compact's images are more detailed and crisper than G... moreTry the color poster, Z3c basically got it all a little wrong. Also remember that the S5 has a 16:9 sensor, when cropped to 4:3 is ends up at around 12mpix while the Z3c is still 20.7, thats a huge difference in pixel count.
Waiting for Z3c Superior Auto to be added.
The protruding glass on both sides makes me a little worried. How large/small a blow/bump will it take to crack the entire surface????
I frankly don't get the point on glass at the back of a phone or phablet. Sure it might LOOK nice, but a slight unluckily placed bump and the whole back could be cracked, requiring an expensive repair. Had it been metal or plastic it would just get a dent...
i like this phone . im LG G3 user.
i will sell my g3 and will buy z3 compact and i will only replace when g4 comes.
Are all Sony sound enhancement are available in third party music app (e.g. Spotify) ??
GSMArena's photo comparison tool says Z3 Compact's images are more detailed and crisper than Galaxy S5's, in fact it's better than most of the phones out there. Too good to be true.
[deleted post]Still the 6 Plus will outsell the Note 4 with a very comfortable margin and iPhone 6 will outsell Xperia Z3 Compact 50 to 1.
WOW, Z3 Compact has just topped GSMArena's battery-life tables for a phone!!! The only devices that beat it on their list are larger 6+" phablet/tablet devices that have the space for huge batteries. And that was without even enabling the Stamina Mode!!!!
They totally, made the correct decision to keep the 720p screen. Battery life is much more important than a difference in resolution that you can't notice unless you use your phone an inch from your face.
Damn, that awesome battery life!!! :O
I'm loving this phone and can't wait to get it. Perfect replacement for my Xperia S. It was worth to wait for this.
Damn great job Sony!!
One thing that should be added since it is a dealbreaker for some people is that the WHATS NEW cannot be disabled from longpress on the home button unless you disable Google Now or if you root it. It would be a 100% dealbreaker for me but i always disable Google Now anyway, still its quite sad that Sony is pushing their bloat so hard, soon Xperias may be as worthless as Galaxy and Huawei phones.
Anomynous, 12 Sep 2014Quite expensive for an upper midrange but the battery life says it all. However its crap that ... moreThis phone is not upper midranger!Its "full" fledged flagship in smaller form factor.Considering this something must have been sacrificed i.e. 720p screen,which actually isn't downgrade... still has 300ppi+ great colors-contrast-viewing angle and allows exceptional battery life.
About the price,you know that you cant get something for nothing?!Considering all that Z3c has to offer and the competition as well,I think the price is more than adequate.
Tap to wake and integrate answer machine: are presente as Xperia Z2?
Z3c contrast ratio is really low at ~900 compared to +1800 of Z1c :\
And one thing that i been posting lots of times and i think Sony heard me: Give us back the option for 4:3 aspect ratio in Superior Auto, like we had with Xperia Z!
And there it is, finally. This means a lot to me, photos has to be 4:3 (or 2:3, like many real cameras have). And why? Disable autorotate and try to look at a 16:9 photo, its terrible, and its equally terrible when you try to view a portrait orientation 16:9 photo on a PC, for example on facebook, it will be too narrow to see any detail. But now no editing needed.
Btw, the camera sux in daylight but i know from experience that Xperia cameras are the best all rounders, by far. No other phone will give so few failed photos.
deal breaker :
- Non user-replaceable battery
- no native video calling
i am so buying this! time for my SII to retire. hopefully the price is not steep!
