Had the e3 for 4 months now. Here is my review
Sony known for its sophistication in terms of the design section did not fail on the e3. The build and feel are premium on the hand. Although the back is not made of glass, its self-healing rubber like material prevents that unavoidable scratches when you pop your e3 together with your keys or any other scratchy items. My only critic is the overly placed bevels on the top and bottom which makes the e3 unusually long.
In terms of processing power, the speed of the e3 separates it from the mediocre performing set of smartphones. The device is fluid all throughout which i really like.
Sound support as known for any sony device is superb. Sound support using your sony earphones is almost noice cancelling. Sound quality is converted by sony in the most crystal clear quality. Overall sound support is very impressive and a nice experience.
Battery is decent. Impressive Stamina Mode support, really extends battery life. Nice one for sony. Will surely last for a day with moderate use.
I have a lumia 620. Sadly the e3 does not compare with camera quality of lumia range. Although there were hefty camera support features, the image quality is still decent.
The price range of the e3 compensates for the display department. Although not comparable with some mid range competitors, the display quality will still be decent, although you would still wish that the display be improved a little more.
Overall, the e3 is a good buy if you are looking for an affordable xperia experience. Sony known for building dependable units, the e3 stays true on sony DNA.

I need it to stream videos directly to a smart tv on the same network.
Also, does it have notification led?
mickey, 10 Jul 2015Otg cable doesn't working in e3 why? Please help meOtg cable not support why?
It's not a problem in the phone than in the software. From ice crem sandwitch Google has made the primary sd card is sd emulated as the internal memory. To solve the problem root the phone (find on xda forum) and download xposed framework, after that download xInternalSD. You can flash kernel to swap internal sd to external sd. Find on xda forum
Well this phone is just bad, the memory is so low and the batery is heating. Main problem is that the root wont work, i tried all youtube ways and it wont work. Never ever buy this phone if u like apps
Easy to solve storage issues.
Root Phone, install Link2SD and never have an issue again.
I went one further, reflashed stock, rooted, deleted all the sony junk, then did link2sd. Now it installs everything to my external sd card ext4 partition.
Internal sd always shows 1.5GB.
I do agree though, space sucks on this phone if you are not android savy and know ways around issue.
Bad worst phone, internal memory is big problem, cannot update apps. phone always shows storage space running out. And you can't never install big apps like asphalt games,
Sony experia E3 should have atleast 2GB internal storage,other features is normally ok.
it's front camera..#not enough..it's internal storage should be of 4GB instead given only 2 GB but the network Quality to catch the range is excellent.
Brotha, E3 is the most, make no mistake it's THE MOST PREMIUM LOOKING PHONE IN IT'S RANGE ..... Screen is good, Sound is a awesome, volume is a bit low but has a luxurious feel, Camera is 5 MP but could have been better, Battery Is ok !! Overall you may go for it

Ilove sony xperia...so i bought e3 because it comes in my price range...but the problems r disgusting....1:front camera not suitable for selfie ,i think most important in new selfie world..2: main camera is okk..but not up to mark..important because in this price range better other options available...3:most disgusting,pathetic is the internal memory ..short of 2 gb,1.25 gb used by android application..rest only 800 mb nearly available ...main problem due to this is some softwares cannot be moved to sd card..they can be stored in internal memory only..whatsapp videos and images can be stored only in internal memory..big issue...nothing to do with this low internal memory..very disappointed abt this low internal memory and very poor front camera...but in this price range sony offering a mobile which is so touch sensitive,fast,good looking,very handyyy...
Sony xperia e3 is a great phone, im using it for 2 months it is so very nice, but there is an only one problem have low internal memory. Because of his update 4.4.2 kit kat to 4.4.4 kit kat update. It gets lot of internal memory when you update it. Sony Xperia phone is great.
