Anonymous, 14 May 2016Should I get the Z3 - 335 $ or the Nexus 5x - 265$Go for Sony.
Anonymous, 14 May 2016Should I get the Z3 - 335 $ or the Nexus 5x - 265$I went from Nexus4 to Z3, camera is better, phone is faster, more RAM, I'm realy satisfied with the phone, but Nexus is Nexus, and I still can't get over it. What ever choice you make, I think you won't regret it.
Anonymous, 14 May 2016Did you try listening to music with high-res in earphone inserted?? how's the sound quality??Quality is excellent. Without issues and noise.

Gleez, 14 May 2016Yes I completely agree that its a real shame to put a case on such an elegantly designed phone.Yes. I agree too. But screen protectors and cases protect your phone from cracking and scratches. I hate scratches. My phone is look like new.

Don't worry but this awesome phone. I have black one. Don't faced any issues till now. Inserted huge memory from sandisk. Waiting for marshmallow update. If you have any questions ask me please.
hello, I have T2 ultra dual sim on 5.1.1 Android lollipop it's very good no lags at all SUPERB battery life!.. should I sacrifice T2's 6 inch screen and switch to Z3 just because i want more ram and internal storage?
I heard that Z3 have some problems with usb flap cover and has sucks battery life and over heating is it true?
Massart, 13 May 2016damn- sorry for your experience- it sucks realizing that you made a wrong purchase when it's a... moreIMHO..... It really depends upon personal preference....to me it is better to buy a last year "Flagship" phone rather than current year "Mid ranger"..why....??
+ You can get longer update support from company than mid ranger.(examples of XPERIA SP and XPERIA Z are in front of you)
+ More developer support from XDA and other forums.(like root, recoveries, custom roms... if company ditched the phone for further updates you can get latest android version from prestigious developers,Chances of developer support of Midranger phone is less than that of Flagships)
+Xperia Z3 vs Samsung A5 (2016): IMHO.... It depends upon you.... I haven't use any Samsung phone because I hate the burn in issue of AMOLED. So I will give you my honest comparison based on paper specs hope it will help you....
If you want good performance, reliable able Display (LCD does not have Burn in issue), better UI(IMHO), and if camera is not a big deal for you (If you not a hard core photographer,if you are, I would recommend to buy Low end or Budget DSLR, it would way better than any smartphone camera ) , then Go for SONY Z3.
+ If you want solid metal built , Slightly better camera in low light and indoors due f1.9 although it may not be a huge difference, better front camera, an Go for SAMSUNG A5 (2016)
+Battery on both of them will be same.
---- If I were you then first of all I would think What are my priorities... my priorities are Price> Design> Performance> Battery>Display> Durability> UI> Camera.
There are certain things which we can't upgrade especially in smartphones.Like Processor,ram, e.t.c, Until the release of Project ARA then there will be no problem of camera,processor,ram internal storage e.t.c e.t.c ,on the other hand If there is no official update no problem we can install custom roms based on latest android version,if you are not satisfied with camera no problem you can buy DSLRs and Camcorders, but if your processor is slow or your ram is low you can't upgrade it or change it.
Regarding to fragility of Z3 i would every smart phones are fragile from one side i.e. front side or screen side but because of glass on the back side of Z3 it is fragile from both sides ... applying covers will minimize the color degrading of aluminum frame it is like a bumpers present on the vehicles....its up to you if you do care of your stuff it will last longer and IMHO it depends upon your fate...
so Z3 vs Samsung A5 (2016).... I would go for Z3 (C6603) bcz of performance, UI, Developer support, you can live with the camera of Z3. the only phone I am considering from Samsung is Galaxy S7 Edge...but its cost is very high and By the I am also student can't afford it right now I am not able to find better phone than Z3 and despite of experience with D6616 variant I can't try to hate Z3 i don't know why . and also it not officially sold in my country which means no warranty at all but I still love SONY, It is good brand just need to improve their camera little bit....Strange thing is that other brands like Samsung also use SONY camera sensor but I don;t know why SONY ruin their camera in their own Xperias....
I have considered LG G4 but its camera is good but battery is not good and also it has some issues in OIS while recording videos and one major issue of boot looping.
S6 has no SD Card and low battery performance... Hope you will under stand what I am saying.... Correct me if I am wrong .... thanks...:)

Each of them has different personality sometimes. But just handle them with care it will do. I just enjoy using it before I let it go. Other phone sleep before it'll be sold.
