I'm new using this phone, just wanna ask is there a way to have a notification window / pop up whenever receiving text messages. I get them in the notification bar but i sometimes miss them. Would just see several messages already on the messaging app. Thanks!
I need loud ringtones.
Even if there is dual speakers, i read that only one speaker is activated for the ringtones, and that the sound is weak.
Is it true ?
Tired of big phones, so i would like to buy one. But i think 500 € for a small phone is too high, even if i know the specs are great. It looks like it is not worth the money because it is just not an impressive phone, as can be an LG G3 for example...Doesn't feel premium or anything like that.
I have the charging dock of the Xperia z2..Will it work on the Z3 compact or not? Does anyone know?

There are options where u can select which app you still want to run .
How does the battery really last? For real? Mine under above average usage does not reach 2 full days yet...How can I find if the battery really has 2600mAh? Don't get me wrong, I 'm etremely happy with the phone, it's probably the BEST out there in this category/features/price...but I was expecting a little more considering the reports and reviews, including the gsmarena 101 hours testing.

Go figure your nonsense reasoning....
If you are satisfied with your monomic phone in this 2014., well...Im glad you are happy with it

I actually own a phone with stereo sound recording...

By the way, go and record sound at a concert and see which one does better, you will find that the mono one is very superior. Stereo is nice at the cinemas and so on but on cellphone recordings?? LOL. Even on real Sony camcorders they will put additional microphones for better recordings, and many successful youtubers like Derek Muller use separate audio recorders altogether, even when its only for youtube. Please stop being such a laughable fanboy.
Got it today.. great phone, been playing with it, setting it up whole day .. still 68% of battery left.
darkraver, 14 Oct 2014And yes, I actually send my video recordings via dlna wirelessly to my TV with stereo surround... moreWell you wouldnt be able to tell if is was iphone or xperia, it has been proven several times that people cannot tell the mono from the stereo video recorded with a phone. Mono is just as good in reality.
KiM, 14 Oct 2014How about loudness of speakers ?If you mean for listening to music. The sound easily fills a 15 Ft by 10 Ft room

Gueno, 15 Oct 2014In what country are you? Philippines? this phone too expensive than my expexted price...
from... moreI feel you brother. Been trying to save for this beast but disappointed when I learned about the price. Its way overpriced compared to online shops. WidgetCity site do sell it for around 20-24k I think. But dont think It's a good idea to buy from online since we do not the authenticity/state of the phone so does the warranty.
Also, Z1C also drop 2k in price :( :( :(... Sony PH must learn how price their phone properly. Specially when you can get an HTC ONE M8 with lesser money but having SAME/BETTER Specs.
I just can't understand, being a unique in digital camera segment since last couple of decades, how come Sony is just struggling in actual mobile camera segment with Samsung or Nokia!! Though Sony is declaring above 20 mega pixel as their capacity in their latest flagships, but in reality its performance is way behind than that of Samsung's & Nokia's. Even Nokia's earlier Symbian based N series' 5 mega pixel is batter than Sony's today's flagships. However, Sony should be in number one as far as at least camera performance is concern. Also Samsungs Galaxy S4's camera is much better comparing to Sony's Z3 series.
If I am wrong, need an expert opinion to prove that Sony's camera segment both for front & rear especially for Z3 series are better than Samsung's Galaxy S5 or Lumia 930.
