I love a good durable flagship phones, and this is one of them.
Used to have the z1c but that has been used and lasted with me for almost 2 years till it battery became trashy... So I switched to this phone and I'm liking it so far except I noticed the internal 16g of storage had became insufficient with the apps and their growing sizes with each update as well the data being stored while using them on the long run, and now I keep getting the notification of internal memory 75%!!!
Sony is considering this over noticed in their new line ups of the z5, still they need to provide bigger internal storages to cope up.
Hmm, the other thing is that I've noticed was the durability of Sony products, let's say after using the phone about 2 years or so it becomes useless and junk then you'll have to go for another new device, but for my iPhone 5s noticed it's still having strong durability than sony and lasting longer with me than other phones.
Really would love from Sony to make phones with high quality that could last longer and longer rather than end up in trash...

I have the Z3c for 1 year and 3 months already and I didn't have any problems! Until 2 days ago when I could not swipe down my notification bar... :( it is really frustrating because now sometimes it works sometimes not. And I have to swipe down multiple times until it works.
Jjj,I am currently running this beta and it is pretty fast,but it isn't too much faster than 5.1.1.
I am getting a bit of a lower AnTuTu score but probably because the device was very hot at the time I ran the test,and I do have the same battery life as before but it should be better for you because I have Viper4android which does drain battery
Water proof is a myth. Just fell into swimming pool (all compartments on phone closed properly) the phone is f#@ked!
Is anyone updated the beta version of marshmallow? Share the experience about the update.

Is just dust I was frustrated but since I used the air gun sounds like new. Have look at internet where the speakers are. Good luck.
Man HTC is sending update to even e8 & Dezire Eye phones. I am feeling bad having to wait updates for Z3 series.
But the new update takes away stamina mode so now I also feel not so sure about it but I want the camera2 api too. Damn it can't make up my mind.
jjj, 13 Mar 2016Which mode is better to get good detailed images? Superior auto or manual modeManual.
Gps doesnt work anymore after lollipop upgrade, no solution so far (6 months!), hard reset doesnt help, sony says i have to submit it to repair but they say i have to pay even if its under warranty!! A lot of people has the same problem, try to google "z3 compact gps issue" and check by yourself. No more sony for me
xperia sucks not really a waterproof device tsk and if it had damages better to buy a new phone than repairing it. Never ever trust this phone under water :( really upset with this malfunctioning phone.

sanju, 11 Mar 2016i have z1 compact it real good. but now i buy z3 compact it speaker not same like z1. it not g... moreI agree there! Z1C has better audio output and also better build quality. But... The Z3C has more refined design, not as chunky and odd as the Z1C. It´s also nicer in your palms. Improved grip of the handset. The Z1C feels a bit old desing-wise. (Sorry all you Z1C-owners out there!)
Z1C and Z3C is otherwise very similar phones. Shows there´s not much happening in the smartphone department of 2013-2016. I could have gone for the Z1C and saved some dough. I´m not a power-user so the only important thing for me is that they dont cancel updates for the OS. Newer = Hopefully longer lasting pleasure.
microphone stop working after 10 months. I can hear the caller but the caller cant hear me unless I talk on the speakerfone. Gave it in for repair , under warrenty, and got it back afrer 6 weeks. Authorised repair centre says its beyond economical repair. They say I damaged the SD card slot!! Whats this got to do with the microphone I ask. They say its abused!!!
I am so angry and dissapointed at Sony SA. I asked for proof, as my sd card works perfectly well. The fone was never dropped, and looks new after nearly a year.
They sent me a pic of my fone with a damaged SD slot. Guess what? I took a foto of the SD slot, and its not the one from the pic. AND... I gave my fone in for repair in January 2016. Their foto was dated 17th December 2015.. !!!
