I just recently bought this phone after a long debate of what I wanted to get. I have absolutely no regrets. This is the best phone I've ever had.
Please get phones for yourselves before you read and judge them by a single review. According to GSMArena, the ZR (my old phone) has better contrast than the Z3C, and that's simply not true. The colors are more vibrant, whites brighter, and blacks deeper. It is simply better in every way you can imagine.
This phone is perfect for me. Plain and simple. No self-cracking, or and nonsense I hear 0.05% of buyers talking about.

drate, 08 May 2015Krystine I can send you mine for free, however it is with shaterred front&back glass.Hello! Are you sure you want to give your phone away? I would be glad to accept it even its glass is shattered. Thanks!
Self cracking glass are all false, i've had my Z3c fell down with touch panel facing downside it never had a crack isntalled was plastic screen protector height is about 5 feet and still in good condition only had minor scrathes in the polycarbonate plastic that houses the glass panel. Nothing is perfect even other high end phones habe it's own flaws. But Z3c i can say that it's 1 of the best value for money you can get right now, cheers.

Bad quality phone? right. Let's see any other so called smartphone to survive this long, then we talk.
Sony Ericsson phones were the best when it comes to durability and speaker volumes, I don't get why you say that. I have living proof my own W995 that Sony Ericsson phones are beasts!
Good quality phone. Have been using for around 2 months. Bought the white version, D5833.
Disabled many of the built-in apps and mainly use for chat, calls, fb/ig/snapchat etc. Snappy with no lag.
Good quality screen and cameras. White balance was a bit blue out of box, but very easy to adjust.
Battery is rarely lower than 60% by the end of the day. Charges quickly. Have never noticed any significant warming.
Bought a cheap, thin clear plastic case early on that provides plenty of protection.
The phone upgraded to 5.0.2 a few weeks ago - no noticeable change in performance.
Only concern is the potential wearing of the charger cover flap. Bought a couple of aftermarket magnetic charging cables but they're hopeless. May consider the magnetic dock.
Highly recommended phone.

I would definitely recommend that you do NOT buy this phone - I owned it for 3 weeks, had minimal problems - until the glass screen became chipped in the corner of the screen by itself. I had not touched it that day - I come home to find a chip missing? I returned the phone immediately - do not risk buying this phone, unless you're willing to pay to get the screen fixed.
Krystine, 08 May 2015am dying to have that phone,God help meKrystine I can send you mine for free, however it is with shaterred front&back glass.
My Xperia z3compact is really working as expected,very fast, no lag,good cam fast browser etc. But I noticed the following from my usage
1.charging from 0- 100 takes approximately 2hrs 30 mins, I thinks it abnormal,I charge it with the it's in box charger.
2.My battery barely last a day, I'm not a heavy user,just basic whatsapp and litle browsing. I dnt have games to play. I charge my phone every night, I thought I would use my phone for a day and half before recharging it. I'm highly disappointed with this mobile.
Everything works fine apart from these, which I'd just pointed out,.
PLEASE HELP ME, I WOULDNT LIKE TO SELL IT SO SOON, I LIKE THE PHONE. I HAVEN'T UPDATED TO LOLLIPOP. I NEED YOUR HELP ASAP,YOU CAN CONTACT ME ON 08064788209 VIA WHATAPP. THANKS IN ADVANCE.
Caelius, 07 May 2015The moment i laid eyes on Z3 i can't help thinking and dreaming to have one. What attracts me ... moreYou have a clear problem of RTFM, it's stated in the instructions that salt water is out of the question, with or without washing the phone after submerging.
