i was at a sony store yesterday and i saw a dummy of the orange version of this phone (somewhat red somewhat orange). it's a beauty, only if it is also orange on the front panel.
anyway, can we transfer apps to sd card with this? i was really disappointed that my xperia sp won't transfer my fb, games, etc to my sd card... and the phone keeps telling me that my internal storage is almost full (the phone is barely a year old).. annoying, isn't it?
also, i would like to know:
don't sony read the reviews here at gsmarena? ever since the first Z, the review was not good with regards to shooting in panorama... wouldn't sony do something about it???
JoN, 05 Nov 2014DOn't know why but Sony phones have small fonts very hard to read. Samsung fonts are much bigg... moreThis is just because Google changed from Roboto to Roboto Condensed in newer versions of Android.
my verdict after 2 weeks with this phone one word ....BRILLIANT.. battery life is the best I have seen on a smart phone to date 3 days and I am a heavy user ..ordered rhinoshield front and back screen protectors and a crash guard also this phone is perfection..
at 1st, I'm having hard time choosing between iphone6 and xperia z3 compact. when i had this phone...... forget iphone6!!! XD
DOn't know why but Sony phones have small fonts very hard to read. Samsung fonts are much bigger and pleasant to read.
For me, Sony is one of those companies that will always impress me, just look at this phone, its by far, the best in it category :D
Chamamen, 04 Nov 2014you should use for the back a matte or LCD film protection. Non of the Back o front are scratc... moreIt is because the Xperia Z had shatter proof plastic sheets on its back and front glass panels. They get easily scratched.
Starting with Z2 Sony gave up those sheets and it's just glass. However, I recommend some back cover at least because it's still very thin glass nevertheless.
caslin, 04 Nov 2014Nope....mine have already got two minor schratches and I'm extremely careful!the front panel its scrath prof but back panel not
This is my dream phone, but can't buy it as it lacks a removable battery, a requirement for my usage :( :( sony, please do the Z4 compact with removable battery!!!
Freddy, 04 Nov 2014Hey Guys, whats about charging with a docking station if i use a cover?! Has someone any exper... moreThe dock will work with a cover. There are special inserts that come with the Sony dock that you change depending on whether you are using a cover or not.
Hey Guys, whats about charging with a docking station if i use a cover?! Has someone any experiences with covers and "wireless charging"? Does it works/connects? ;)
you should use for the back a matte or LCD film protection. Non of the Back o front are scratch resistant, they are shatter-proof. I used my Xperia Z without any protection and even being careful it gain many scratches. Now, with Z3c I didn't risk it.
juan valero, 04 Nov 2014the back panel its not scratch proff Nope....mine have already got two minor schratches and I'm extremely careful!
juan valero, 04 Nov 2014well i have Z3C for a month right know, in general amazing phone.. u can see the reviews.. but... moreCover is never an option for me. Just the thought of it is a disaster.
FF Camera as you said bad in low light, this has always been a problem on Xperia, no idea why they didnt improve it yet, we had many Xperia phones including flagship ones but always had to use iPad for video calls, Xperia FF cam is only usable outdoors in perfect light. Funny how low end phones like Galaxy Grand has much better FF cam than top of the line Xperia phones, even old laptops with truly terrible FF cams can be used indoors, why not Xperia then... Poor quality all the way.
well i have Z3C for a month right know, in general amazing phone.. u can see the reviews.. but here the people whant to know the "bad things" so he where go.
-front facing camara its "ok" and in low light conditions its bad. if u go skype call like me u need to be in good light ambient
-the cover looks well made. but if u whant to protect those cover buy a manetic cable to allways charge with magnetic (google it).
-the headphone comes with the phone are old-style headphone.. (are a shit)
i think this stuff are not really a cont... the general performance, principal camera, OS, sound, baterry(its a goodlike baterry. 100%-4% take me 2D, 13h, 6h screen time)
its a cristal phone, its really delicate, so BUY a COVER WTF.. stopo posting stuff like " i droped this phone , it crack its a shit phone"... all phone u droped in right potition it will crak.. at this moment i use Z1C cover it fit right it fit like 90% at moment the Z3C covers comes to my country. at least to protect the phone.
