I only had small issue with Z3 back then it's headphone jack stooped working but it's was my fault actually since I connected headphones before 3.5mm jack was dried out completely and that caused short circuit...I think on newer models like Z3+ and Z5 that can't happen.
anyway I could repair phone under warranty but it's to big of a pain for me to ship it to Sony service...so I did service on my own.
I don't know about your case but if any service repair work is done on your phone that could make it no longer waterproof or if it was exposed to extreme heat and made back cover loose (like under windscreen in a car sun rays would be magnified and could produce a lot of heat)...I mentioning this things since it sometimes happens without people to be aware of such risks...

Either way...im not against the xperia...as its a great device...but sony are stupid on changing they're policy to whatever suits them.

Hi, im from sri lanka, all i need to know is does Sony Marshmallow update bring up Sinhala font rendering? (unicode) Lumia, Samsung offered this for a long time, but my Z3 doesn't have it even with lollypop. Can someone google "Sinhalese" and tell me whether it shows proper fonts or some black boxes
I don't think it's really WhatsApp but due to the display. It does take up the most amount of power. 10% reduction after that amount of time - a bit high, but not abnormal.

I wasnt watching any videos and was using wifi the entire time. I also was not playing any games. the first hour I saw a 30% drop when I downloaded the following apps :
then I was continuously using watsap for 45 mins at 40 percent screen brightness and saw a 10% drop.
Just would like to know if this is normal or do I have some kind of faulty handset?
Dezousa, 31 Mar 2016Hi all,further to the comments i read,i am confused.can you please suggest me Z5 or Z3,which i... moreBoth are great. Z5 is newer, so it has some new features like new camera, processor, fingerprint scanner etc. But, it will be costly. Z3 on the other hand is good too but will get updates later but will be cheaper.

None of the previous 2 had to be replaced like this. There coud just be a problem with the devices shipped to your region or that store in particular. I suggest trying to buy online for a change.

U are doing 3 of these things continuously then obviously battery power will drop faster.
Hi guys, how long does your battery last on default settings whilst using apps like watsap?
after using the app for around 35 mins i get about 10% drop in battery. Is that normal?
whilst i was fiddling with the phone installing apps my battery had dropped down by 30% after an hours use. Is this normal?
enriq, 18 Mar 2016friends......what about green xperia z5......u like it?I decided to go for the golden one For a challenging change. And I can say that it feels and looks great. It's matte golden.
I think these Sony phones are great....when they are working! I'm on my 3rd Z3 in 18months and I'm a careful owner. My 1st one suddenly became un-water resistant, Sony replaced it with no questions - I think the seal had melted inside the phone due to heat issues. My 2nd phone was sent back due to an issue with the ear proximity sensor - phone just randomly vibrated while on a call, and now my 3rd phone has been sent back today due to the sound not working in the headphones correctly. As much as I like these phones, the build quality is poor and I can't see how they will ever last the duration of a 24month contract - but on the other hand Sony seem happy to keep sending me a replacement phone. I'm a few months away from a new phone deal, but I'm looking to see if the Z5 has any of these issues that seem to be pretty common on the Z3 judging by other forums.

Ashkan M.S, 01 Apr 2016Maybe your phone sim card slot cover wasn't closed properly. I think if this phone wasn't 100%... moreTake your device swimming
If your Sony smartphone or tablet is waterproof to IPX8 standard*, then you can use it in a chlorinated swimming pool. However, avoid keeping the device in the pool for too long and remember to rinse it off thoroughly with fresh water once you get out.
Over time, chlorinated water can corrode the rubber seals, so prolonged use in chlorinated water is not recommended. But if you want to use your device to get underwater close-ups of a spectacular dive or your childÂ’s first swimming lesson, go ahead.
* Sony devices that are rated IPX7 or lower should not be exposed to chlorinated water.
Marjan1508, 31 Mar 2016yeah...but sony doesnt say that...now they are saying DONT SUBMERGE them under water...dont us... moreMaybe your phone sim card slot cover wasn't closed properly. I think if this phone wasn't 100% water proof it shouldn't have ip68 certificate, I mean if this one can handle just some dropped water or rain then it's certificate should be IPx5. When they claim their product has IP68 it mean it has to protected again drowning in water in depth of 1.5 meter and last for 30 minutes. Also note that it is protected against pure water.I guess your phone break down due to environmental situation.maybe depths were more than 1.5 m or it rest there more than 30 minutes , maybe pool water is different from pure water. This phone doesn't have USB port & 3.5 jack cover so it's not a good idea to carry your phone into pool
