I got this phone a few months ago. And I have dropped it quite a few times. But still it worked. There was no scratch on the screen or a crack. Then suddenly one say I picked it up and the top half of the phone, the touch screen stopped working. I restarted it several times. But still it didn't work. Now only the bottom half of the touch screen works. :(

- Is there a solution to this???

after one year using this phone here's my comments :
- No heating at all
- Never hangs even after updating to 4.4.4
- very good battery
- camera compared to Samsung is not good enough
- suitable for heavy games

and now counting days for the lollipop update :)

> In reply to Shogun @ 2015-03-12 17:54 from qd}F - click to readMy Xperia Z C6602 was the same issue. No voice during call (earphone didn't work). Even I downgrade to Jelly Bean 4.1.2, the problem was still exist. I did touch the top of earphone, when the sound came back again, I used it normally. Don't squeeze the earphone, the problem would reappear. The best solution at that time, I touched (like knock the earphone using finger) the earphone at the top LCD. The problem could gone for long time.

I have a problem with this phone. Sometime, I don't hear voice or they don't hear me. Problem only solve when I switch to speakerphone. I'm not the only one with this issue with the Sony Z series. It seems to be relate to the KitKat update, not the hardware itselt. Have someone resolve this?

I think I need to grab a new phone, I really like the looks of this phone, simple and elegant. I'm using this phone for almost one year.

Pros:
- The looks is awesome.
- Camera quality is outstanding using standard camera app (I'm using some of premium third party camera app, the quality is blurry, so I think sony doing a great job with their camera app)
- Bravia quality is sick, any video become amazing!
- Water resist, I can using the phone in my bathtub.

Cons:
- Battery. I'm doing many trick to reduce battery drain, but it drain battery really fast, I need to charge it 3 times a day.
- Hot. This phone going very hot even when you using it for whatsapp, when playing games, it feels like you touch a glass with hot water inside it.
- Lagging, this phone is so slow, I'm doing many tricks, but still lagging, sometimes I want to kick my phone :P
- If you're using standard room, there're lot of unused app you can't remove, e.g. I can't open walkman before updating the xperia account, in other hand that xperia account is useless.
- Bad viewing angle. It feels like old phone :P
- Over price, another smartphone got dragon trail or gorilla glass, oleophobic coating, but why sony just give us a cheap glass? even for z3?

For a comparison, a couple month ago I've octa core smartphone with same battery capacity, with octa core processor, when playing HD games, the phone just got slightly warm, and I only need to charge once a day.

@vijay:
In my country we have similar condition, sony is really popular with their worst after sales, even when your phone still have a guarantee, they don't want to replace with new phone, they'll repair it.
But, here, you can repair the sony phone, you must waiting 2-3 month, and some people got bad luck must wait for 6 month. that's unbelievable.
And 50% of them, got a problem after repair their phone, e.g. the phone become not water resistant, can't close back casing, camera become BSS, etc.

I choose sony because they design looks elegant, and camera quality. but I'm not interested to buy any sony smartphone, sony, z3 with that price you can add a gorilla glass!
