Both 1st and 2nd rep at the local SONY certified and recommended/requested service shop. About your issue with 'loose' screen - a far too common problem, and seems to be increasing! The glue used is a type of thermo-plastic (like glue-gun) and heat is needed to soften it and remove the screen. With the increasing reports of 'overheating' phones after latest Android-update (6) how will that impact the glue? You are lucky if you are living in a country where they take customer service seriously and wants to protect the SONY brand name, I'm not that lucky.

So I send my phone to Sony to repair I only ask for the screen and micro usb cover repairment they did a full check up and repaired for free I am just waiting for it to come back and I will see how they did it.
If your problems won't come to an end you should make sure a real professional person repairs your phone.
My Z3 Compact will be my last SONY ever!!
Twice in for warranty repair in 10 months of ownership. 25% of warranty time, phone in service center for repair. 1st rep: phone turned off when receiving calls+++= motherboard changed. 2. time: no back-button, no drop-down menu. Most likely error screen/digitalizer, but have not got that confirmed yet. Add to the grouses, an extremely bad and unprofessional service in my location: Malaysia. The phone might be high spec and high tech, but does not last for long, always need a back-up phone when it starts acting up!
In marshmallow SD card can be added to internal storage. But has sony provided this feature in their update ? I can't find it in my xperia Z3 compact ? Has anyone else done it on their phone ?

With the marshmallow the battery takes over 4 hours at 100% load .. :( and lasts half compared with the stamina :( :( very disappointing
Guys I send my phone to technic service and the info page says "Model Explanation: D5803/Exchange Unit/Dummy ExU/Black". What does it mean?

Sony has found around 400 bugs, a system update is coming next week. Z3C is overall a nice phone just needs some protection (cases and stuff).

There are alot of people online who ha e had the same problem as me.
The top left corner of the phone comes apart from the case not waterproof anymore, also the jax piont broke as well.
If you have a look this has happened to other people, Sony really fucked up with it.
All Xperia contains DRM on their own apps, camera included, so unlocking the bootloader wipes the DRM, so a few apps will be negatively affected. Good thing though that the main Xperia series are the only phones that I know that can be rooted through exploits, so no need to unlock the bootloader.
I have had mine for slightly over a year, and just recently I got a hardware problem with the touchscreen not working partially (only the navigation bar...), fortunately still on the final days of warranty, so I didn't need to pay to get it fixed. It's a good phone, though I do miss the Z1's back glass and aluminum borders
