My wife accidentally dropped Z3c through elevator shaft, the fall was about 1,5 floor. She had the device protected by Frosted shield case and 9H protection glass, both from Nillkin. The phone did survive the fall and works alright, only the protective glass is shattered, and the case has 1 cm crack in one corner.

I changed 2 screens and they still crack easily. The Phone is a Great Phone, just that it needs help with durability........................
I do love my Z3 Compact after all. But really why do phones have to be glued together but not using old school screws and nuts...
My first xperia z3 compact fell and the glass broke, the glass and the LCD in this phone are glued together so the repair is not easy. I sent it to a tech shop for repair also knowing that I would lose the waterproof feature. They couldn't repair it somehow so I bought a new one. Now after three months the second phone suddenly crashes without notice and I can't restart it right away, I have to wait for some time until it's able to turn on again. It hast lasted a couple of days on, down to about two minutes, the crashes I believe are totally random and I haven't been able to find what's causing them. I used to love Sony, but now I won't be buying anything from them again.
Z3 compact LCD touch are somekind of disposable. I've purchased 3 in a row and all same problem. I dnt put in my pocket or drop. This phone is bad
M N Y S, 25 Jun 2016Lately i got a notification that Android 6 Is available Is it good enough... What is you... moreIt 'works' if correctly installed! There have been quite some issues reported from the up-grade, however it looks like most of them are due to a 'failed' up-grade and installation. I would recommend to do it by using the PC Companion software and the 'repair phone' menu. Remember to do a full back-up first. This way you get a clean install and less risk of crashes.
Greatest phone I have ever had. I am a sales rep and use my phone for business and am constantly on it. Making calls and using it to check my figures. Integrates perfectly with my work applications. Only issue I have is its time to upgrade... How do I make the choice.
Lately i got a notification that Android 6
Is it good enough...
What is your opinions
Thanks a lot ...
Touch screen start to have problem just after 1.2 year, after warranty period. Seems lots of people got same problem. Angry!!!

Did no 'tweaking', only installed general mail apps and security. Battery drop might be due to some apps having been up-dated during night according to notification.

Mine drops max %5 without power saving modes while sync WiFi and mobile data are always turned on. Try to repair your phones software via Pc Companion.
Finally got my replacement (warranty!) phone yesterday (Z3Compact) and got it set up. Transferred the most from the Samsung A3 (2016) that I bought while the SONY was a sent for repair. What a disappointment! The SONY works, at least for now, but: the SAMSUNG better screen, better key-board, better ring-volume and sound and not to forget battery life! The Samsung drops about 5% overnight, the SONY had dropped 15% this morning. The SAMSUNG might be slightly slower, however as a 'phone' mainly used for calling, e-mails etc I like the A3 better. The SONY might have a better camera, might be 'waterproof' to a certain extend, might have a sleeker design, but for daily function? To me the best about the SONY phones is the PC Companion software giving quite good possibilities to 'service' the phone, far better than the SAMSUNG Kies.
nev, 07 Jun 2016Z3 Compact . using phone for less than a year , phone went blank shows red led when try to cha... moreCompletely agree . My z3 is an expensive paper weight. Very fragile glass and plastic casing. Disintegrates with normal use. Sony should concentrate on Tvs.
I have a Z3 for a year now. The camera was brilliant at first. But after 3 months of using it. The camera quality is terrible. It's not that I don't look after my phone. I update my anti virus and always chek up. I Love the other features though. But the camera quality is really bad. That for me is really disappointing. This didn't only happen to me. This happened to 2 of my friend's phones too.

Would it be correct if I say it is better than ever? I don't know. One thing I can surely say is that I would not change my phone to any other one out there.
I have z3c 1.8 year's, and it work like the beginning.
Speedily and responsible to the top.
I think sony's phone is the best phone products.
My next phone without a doubt is Sony!!!!
recommended for anyone's
I,ve been using Z3C for about 1year and Ringke Fusion cover to protect it so there is no problem like unglued or cracked screen.Although I usually run HD games like Mortal kombat X or Real Racing 3 It's been still performing like the first day I bought it , everything is fairly smooth and I can hardly find lag on it. I,ve updated it to Android M recently and it's completely in sync with my vaio laptop, I should say "I DO LOVE MY LITTLE MONSTER".
Sony Xperia Z3 should be ideal for you, given the accompanying highlights:
Reduced, water safe body, IP68 ensured
20.7MP camera, 2160p video
4.6" 720p screen, IPS
Powerful Snapdragon 801 chipset
Android 4.4 KitKat, Lollipop 5.0 coming soon
It's amazing phone.
Well, i am using this phone for 1 year and almost 4 months. There are many pros and cons.
Pros: battery life - all day long lte on, mobile data on, i still get home at 15-20%, at 8pm from 7am; GPS -best positional lock, using here maps. Before i had lg g2, the gps sucked ( lumia 920 at least on par with z3c if not even better); NO LAG - i have many apps and games on my phone, using a samsung class 10 sd card, no problems at all! I have at least 4 gb of memory empty on my phone and it runs like new; Android 6 - love it ( some don't) but i like the way it made my phone feel flagship again; GAMES - no game lags, full stop!
Cons: fragile!!! - Though i dropped it a few times, even from my pocket while i was on a bike, it only had a few dents, it is very slippery and i dropped it from my van, rhe back instantly cracked. The screen is also very prone ro finherfrints and also scratches ( thank god i only have one visible) though i do not like cases and stuff. EARPIECE - so low i could not hear my mom talk during a funeral!!! This is the most annoyong thing to have on a phone! At first i thought i had hearing problems, but i gave it to friend to take some calls and they have always complained about how low the sound is!!! I do not understand why. Also the sound from the stereo speakers is very low!! DISPLAY - after about 6-7 months, the ipper left part of my display just unglued itself, amd it stickks a little further than my roght side. HEADPHONE JACK - Though i have an ipod for music, at first i used the phone for music too, with some top notch sol republic headphones. Now, the jack does not make the connection anymorr, with no headphones ( i have tried 30 pairs at least ) though it does not bother me so much.
Another pro, as i forgot, is the rich package which also includes an usb otg cable ( more than 20 euros in my country).
If the volume was fixed somehow, i would have given this phone 11/10, but i am giving it 8/10. What about you guys?
