I am you can use exterior little USB Thumb Drive,
USB Flash Memory Stick, or External USB/SD adaptor Mini Drive,.plugs into Phone and the phone will play right off the Drive.
Check which type is fast enough to allow games to be read-they MAY need to be loaded temporarily into phone to play- but still a workaround, cause you could have many Apps, Games on USB.Drive.
Anomynous, 08 Nov 2014By the way, your internal storage, its easy to think of a 16GB device being only twice as big ... moreYes, I am hoping Sony is switching back glass to
the same glass as the front ( Dragontrail or GG3)
to reduce cracking and scratching on back glass
but who knows.
Seems like Production Runs are relatively small for USA so far,
amazing z3 compact,best smartphone i had ever...battery life is about 2 days , using it heavily.very fast,compatible with lte ,i love this sony
Anomynous, 08 Nov 2014By the way, your internal storage, its easy to think of a 16GB device being only twice as big ... moreWell here in UK two main suppliers will not get more stock till Nov 11th,,this is third time this has happened..Either Sony underestimated how popular device would be or its selling out fast,,know its the latter..
Also our Carphone Warehouse only gets a few in and they go on contract..Seems Z3C is in short supply in allocated countries never mind opening up to even more countries.

Still not a lot i agree but its getting closer. Lets hope for Z4 Compact having 32GB and 1080p, plus being less fragile. Looks like Sony is delaying launch in some markets, still not available here, but why??? The auto-crack "feature" may be the reason.
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2014So guys before i rush off and get this device. Has anyone had any issues with self cracking sc... moreCheck out the xperia z3c support forum. Full of self cracking phones.

Sony just isnt any good with software, you only have to look at the PS4 and compare it with the ancient Xbox 360 to see how primitive solutions Sony are using, low-tech workarounds that were barely forgivable in PS3 are still present in PS4 and its an outrage, they didnt do anything to rectify the bad situation, while MS made big improvements to already superior software tech, ie Kinect.
This is just how Sony choose to roll, its their mentality, they are not willing to go out in the market to buy tech they need or to hire expensive devs with special knowledge, they just keep their old crap and hope it slides under the radar.
hi guys ..help ! which model of z3 compact got a 4G network (LTE) D5803 OR D5833 ?? which one is better?? please reply thanks...
Got the Z3 Compact a couple of weeks ago and I am very impressed with this phone. Its my first Sony handset and 1st Andriod so it was a bit of change for me after nearly 20 years on various Nokia & Blackberry units. I really cannot fault it in any way and the real standout features for me are the over functionality and especially the battery life, camera and music/sound capabilities. Its very fast on all applications and everything you could wish from a mobile phone. Highly recommend this phone for a business professional who is on the move and requires a device which ticks all of the boxes that need to be ticked!
[deleted post]Don't go for xperia sp as it'll not receive any more android update and u have to stick with jelly bean 4.3
