I am planning to buy z3 compact. but many people complaining about self cracking screen. It is really true or not?
Screen is sensitive. I have changed it ones and have a new crack in it now. Unfortunately the complete screen is dead if you have a small crack in the corner. The screen is expensive change as well (200 Euro) and unfortunately it does not make any sense to change it again since it will probably break soon again.
I bought Z3C 6 months ago. It was an excellent phone for me until yesterday when 3 button (back, home, minimize) were suddently dead.
I tried all method I know to recover but didn't work. So disappointed.
Any one here got same problem? Pls share your experiences. Tks.
I have this phone for one year now and it was so good at the beginning!
But then I realized all the problems it has...
- Since Lollipop the battery is very shitty... It lasts than one day. What's the point of buying a 400Â€+ phone if you have to turn off all the features...
- It heats like crazy... when I am just using Facebook, Maps.ME or even Instagram for a few minutes... It is VERY unpleasant.
- The back, made of glass, is very very fragile. It already cracked two times, and the second time it had a cover Ringke Fusion... Not going to repair it again.
- When I am walking and I have the phone in my pocket, the pin code is typing all alone... I can feel the phone vibring because the code is not good. But then again the battery doesn't last. OR even weirder, it's unlocked and then the bluetooth, the flashlight, LTE is activated, ALL ALONE... What the f*ck?
- Finally, the IP certification is just a big lie. Good thing that Sony changed his policy about it, but it was too late for me...
I am going to come back to Apple, at least for the price I never EVER had any lag or any other problem, except the battery life. I was thinking of maybe Blackberry PRIV but I like less and less Android. And the Windows Store is so poor that I don't even think of it...

I bought it a week ago and i'm so glad i did. I had to think twice before my purchase because of bad opinions in here. It really is fast and battery lasts a whole day even though i use data streaming up to 5 hours. It certainly is more durable than most bad reviews in here. Depends on how you handle it i think. But self cracking, i doubt it's true. If you want it, go get it! You will not be disappointed.
Anyone here who have experience unresponsive screen? especially the upper part (notification area) and the home,back and recent apps area.Can you suggest any possible solution for this problem? Thanks guys
Guys I recently got this phone but the proximity sensor works when it's close to 1 cm. Can we increase it?

I got my Z3C 1 week ago. I must say I'm very disappointed. There are 2 or 3 really stupid mistakes Sony made here. First, the LED flashlight is way to weak, almost useless. It's said to be dimmed to only 30%, making it only as powerful as a normal turned on screen. You need to root the phone to change this. Second, the camera. It's a true sadness. It doesn't seem to be able to take a sharp and clear picture. Always blurry, sometimes more, sometimes less, but that's not it. I'm trying Google Camera now, seems a bit better. Any suggestion which camera app should I use? The third thing would be audio output. It's unpleasantly quiet. I only tried on 2 external speakers, haven't tried headphones yet. But comparing to my old Xperia Ray, it's significantly quieter.
However, I can't complain on speed and battery life, those are extraordinary good. But if I was to buy a new phone again, I would not buy Z3C again, even though it's my 4th Sony (5th phone in 12 years).
Not the best phone but it's OK for me. I'm using this phone with a panzer glass right now. My phone is rooted using root exploit app and flash pre-rooted lollipop 5.1.1, no need to unlock bootloader, so cool for me. i don't have any problems with the software so far.
The phone overheat while i gaming, up to 40 C temp... yeah that's normal. The screen glass is not good, because when you broke the screen, you can't touch it. Good thing is a OTG USB cable that was in the box. You can connect a wired mouse or wireless mouse+keyboard to control your phone, backup everything to Sdcard, and send it to the repair.
