Best Phone just i have one issue Z5 Compact comes with tough coating screen but not Z3 compact remaining all are superb.
First I saw positive comments about this phone and got one. Now i see mostly negative comments. I m using it since a month and its going great. God knows how people handle it and face issues.
its hard to find anything rock solid here for everone that says z3compact is good theres one that has a horror story about, that coupled with just how poor the dam grammar is my god im not expert on english but i almost feel less knowledgeable on this subject having read a few pages,
I had a Z3 Compact for 4 days before the screen cracked... in my pocket!
Sony have refused to repair this under their warranty and refuse liabiity for the problem. I've been left with the choice of paying for the repair of an item whose fault I did not cause or giving up altogether. Not good.

If that doesn't work you can reinstall android software with sony pc companion.
I had my compact for months now and had updated its software the latest of the lollipop version. however, my phone when blank a few use after it was successfully updated. it won't start up. HELP! I guess the lollipop update was a bad move. can anyone help me? ;(
Same problem as countless before me--screen separating screen from the device after only 6 months. No physical damage to cause it, either. I advise staying away from this phone.
I'm a z3 compact owner and after 8 months the front of the mobile (screen) gradually separated from the the back. My guess is because of overheating since device never suffered any physical damage (dropped and etc).
So I would avoid suggest avoiding whole series....
p.s. Sony is not replacing faulty device even though you have warranty. Mobile is still being serviced after 1 month and I'm positive it won't be waterproof anymore ;)
I have few tips. I read many blogs, reviews etc. All says it's best to keep our battery between 40% to 80%. I'm following it. For my convenience, I installed battery alert. It gives a notification tone when my battery reaches 80% while charging. Then I installed battery solo widget. We can keep it as a widget in home screen. When giving a single touch, it says out battery temperature.
The music quality is top notch. One of the best. I'm in Android 4.4.4 and I don't see any issues. It's going smooth. And I use both screen guard and case. I got the tempered glass as free with my purchase. I got a transparent silicon case from online. I'm using a green colour phone. So I like showing off. So bought a transparent case.

Yogi , 04 Sep 2015Is it good to wait for a Z5c...? Or Shall I go For Z3c...? Plz suggest me... did u use a case and screen protector??? If not, then you might need to be a bit more careful... ;)
Best smartphone and i bet you will never find a compact perfect phone like this ever again.
I'm a happy owner of my z3 compact. It's an awesome phone for particular category users like me. I do always prefer compact phones. A phone which should be easy to pick from pocket and shouldn't feel awkwardly big while taking phone calls. This phone is a real beast in all departments. The screen clarity, camera clarity and the sound quality are the awesome features. I'm using a green one. This phone is absolutely for people who prefer compact phones. Though the phone is compact, it's actually 4.6 inch display. So looking at the display estate, it's really good. The one thing which will impress everyone is the amazing battery life. I'm a moderate user and getting a battery life of about 2.5 to 3 days. Camera clarity is superior and the sound quality is awesome. The only thing is people quite won't believe that this is a 30k phone. As I hear people say I spent too much for a small phone. But that's the way it goes. It's a real flagship. Never let's you down. The processor never freeze nor slow down. It's super fast. And people just don't complain about screen cracking. As we spend too much for a phone, it's our responsibility to keep it safe. My 1 year old Xperia e3 still looks fresh out of the box. It's the way how we handle them. So I completely advice people to go for this beast. You will never regret.
