I'm using mine as a phone and it's brilliant. I purchased a normal phone sim, must be nano sim by the way, paying just £4.95 a month 30 day contract, and the quality of the speaker is excellent, people have said that my voice sounds so clear, and strangely a lot clearer and louder than on my Z Ultra. Texting as you would expect is also great, nice big keyboard. I also place the tablet up against my face for better sound even though its using the loudspeaker and I don't care what anyone thinks, I recommend to anyone to use it as a phone.
Just bought this tablet and use it fot more than a week now. So satisfy with this tablet. Only holding it feel so premium. Few of my friend fall in love with it. But this tablet already discontinue. Thinner tha my ipad air 2.

Hi can anyone tell me what screen this tablet is using. When i bought this Sony said IPS but gsmarena mentions TFT. Please clarify this for me please.
This tablets brilliant, head and shoulders above any tablet made by Apple or Samsung. Cost me only £220 last year and it's so powerful, being playing Nova 3, UFC and Real Racing 3, unbelievable graphics and no hint of any lag, the s801 chipset is utterly insane. You get what you pay for but with this tablet you get a lot more for your money, well done Sony.
Sleep doesn't work after updating to 23.5.A.0.575. Anybody has the same problem?

However there are some shortages in some markets,but it is an appropriate smart device that I love to having it in my Virtual Grand Dream Museum!By the way,it is a good tablet for those whom like both qualities and beauties!!Of course,please don't forget to read complete scientific gsmArena,s reviews before any purchase decision-making!Thanks all Plus those whom enjoy technology electronic progresses....+Good luck.
Guys can you help me pls!
Wohow can I update my z3 tablet to marsmallow (or even to lollipop),
it keeps saying your device is up to date (its ver 4.4.4)
Note: it is just factory reset
I would appreciate any help... thanks!
After upgrading to Marshmallow I still can not make the sd-card a part of the internal memory to install games, often more than 3 Gb, on the sd-card as it then would be a part of the internal memory! Goodbye Sony!
Z3 tablet, 15 Mar 2016When will it get 6.0 Marshmallow? Will be updated also to Android N? Next year we will get.
Live2Deliver, 14 Apr 2016Make sure auto rotate is in your quick access settings within the notification pull down. R... moreYeahh!!!, it's a back on my Sony tab. After updating I try this way more than once, and nothing - only two ways ; 1) auto rotate, and 2) portait, and via menu nothing too. Perhaps he wanted one more restart after last updating and I do it few weeks ago, but did not look this option any more and I agreed with destiny. Thank You that drew attention :)
rainman, 14 Jan 2016Can you fix screen in landscape mode manually with Lollipop?Make sure auto rotate is in your quick access settings within the notification pull down.
Rotate your tab to landscape. Pull down the quick access settings.
Turn off auto rotate, make sure it shows landscape.
If you have further issues, go into settings -> display -> screen rotation -> smart screen rotation, and then turn it off.
Lollipop works fine. If facing issues do a factory reset after upgrading. Sometimes it's a must.
When will it get 6.0 Marshmallow? Will be updated also to Android N?

There is nothing wrong with Lollipop 5.1.1, if anyone has a problem they should contact Sony rather than telling others not to download it.
