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

I m thinking to repair the software via pc companion i hope tht wil fix the camera or else use my warranty to make a miracle. Anyone else having this issue?
Its been a grt smartphone until i updated to marshmallow. I was in kitkat for a realy long time dint update to 5.0 coz of the bad review i saw in google. And as marshmallow had a bad version goin on which had good reviews i tght of updating via pc companion without any hesitation bt as i updated everything i fyn except the most important thing the camera its like the same thing that happnd with xperia m2 in 5.0. Less detail,more Noise and high exposure. I hate the camera so much nw whatever sony does their updates r nt gud even after testing beta l is fyn i jst want the camera to b like bfr
I have submerged this smartphone underwater at least 3 to 4 ft and for more than 30 minutes while swimming in the swimming pool. It died on me. But after opening all the flaps and ive submerged it on rice for a couple of days and charged it for a day it came back to life. It also have experienced falling from the top of a bunk bed twice. Only complaints? Yes, the touchscreen on the middle part of my screen due to my wrongdoings :P
Other than that, hats off to the hardware, Sony.
~PS if you have the option, if you have the option, never update your version beyond 4.4.4
(wish I can buy a brand new unit of this one, and may it give me another chance)
Giammi, 25 May 2016What is The best firmware To have a longer battery?I was looking for it for a long time and recently I flashed 23.5.A.0.575 Customized NCB via Flashtool. I am in college and use it often, in the morning it is at 90-100% and when I go to sleep it is at around 30-50%.
This is my recommendation.
