So all this accusations comes from haters and Samsung, Apple fan boys? (I read Samsung employs posters to spread negative comments to competitors) It's not just on official Sony site though.
There are more sites reporting it. I do take it with a grain of salt. But putting just a regular glass back, instead of a tempered or Gorilla Glass made them vulnerable to false claims.
Phones with Gorilla Glass aren't unbreakable, and I read complaints about them too but not out of proportion with Sony phones.
So unless it's some tempered glass I will avoid glass back phones.

Mine is going strong on six months. I don't have a case, and it has taken some decent drops. Lovely phone. No complaints so far.

They saw a few and keep on posting the same thing over and over. Look at LG and samsung they dont open their forums in public.
....it clearly says OUT OF STOCK, as is z2 and z1 out of stock....so it is sold out awaiting for new shipment
They have same page for discontinued and out of stock phones...
This was the best for battery life. Hope Sony come out with a worthy replacement.
Because the glass cracks due to heat and fast contraction afterwards. They need to sort this out on the next Compact models because it existed on both Z1 and Z3 compact. Also the Camera is too hit or miss.. Great photos sometimes and awful in other situations. They need to follow S6/G4's strategy of quick shooting, and advanced mode.
Because of the problems with the back glass. About 15% had problems with their back glass cracked out of nowhere.
AnonD-915, 02 Jun 2015maybe because Z3 Compact sells more than his bigger brother?Probably! It's a lovely phone!
Hmm, sounds strange..
Low demand as usual?
Sony never got the same place with samsung, LG and others
It was a pretty phone. I have a friend who has or had white and let me check it in February when he got it brand new.
