Had this phone for about 6 months now and I'm sad to say that it is the worst phone I've had. However, I do believe that my main issues are due to a faulty single product and not a large scale issue.
Battery - main issue
Around a month ago my phone battery started to last less and less time, usually going from 100% - 0% in 6 hours. A few days ago I had charged my phone fully, turned it off so as to preserve battery as I was away from home for a week and couldn't charge my phone as needed. It then wouldn't turn on or charge at all. The next day the red light flashed and I managed to get it to charge but this didn't last long. Only when I got home yesterday did I manage to charge it to at least 10% and now its returned to not charging at all.
It already has several apps pre installed and this leaves very little space for anything else. I had to disable all the useless apps, including Facebook which didn't work, and still constantly get the low storage space warning. I have an 8mb sd card and I've transferred all I can onto it.
Definitely seen better cameras on phones... inner camera is dark so you can't take decent photos with it and outer camera is blurry unless you're taking the photo from over a foot away.
Pretty decent, not echoey or rough sounds however the storage doesn't allow you to have much music
If I had known all this before I got it then I wouldn't have got this phone because I have a further one and a half years with this phone and it's already unusable
can we connect this phone to sony bravia led via screen mirroring ?
rply me any one
Had the e3 for 4 months now. Here is my review
Sony known for its sophistication in terms of the design section did not fail on the e3. The build and feel are premium on the hand. Although the back is not made of glass, its self-healing rubber like material prevents that unavoidable scratches when you pop your e3 together with your keys or any other scratchy items. My only critic is the overly placed bevels on the top and bottom which makes the e3 unusually long.
In terms of processing power, the speed of the e3 separates it from the mediocre performing set of smartphones. The device is fluid all throughout which i really like.
Sound support as known for any sony device is superb. Sound support using your sony earphones is almost noice cancelling. Sound quality is converted by sony in the most crystal clear quality. Overall sound support is very impressive and a nice experience.
Battery is decent. Impressive Stamina Mode support, really extends battery life. Nice one for sony. Will surely last for a day with moderate use.
I have a lumia 620. Sadly the e3 does not compare with camera quality of lumia range. Although there were hefty camera support features, the image quality is still decent.
The price range of the e3 compensates for the display department. Although not comparable with some mid range competitors, the display quality will still be decent, although you would still wish that the display be improved a little more.
Overall, the e3 is a good buy if you are looking for an affordable xperia experience. Sony known for building dependable units, the e3 stays true on sony DNA.
Anonymous, 04 May 2015e3 is better,much much better as e3 has quantum dot ips display-true colors,high brightness,gr... moreHi, I've been reading some posts that says E3 supports DLNA, but I checked it in a store and doesn't seems to have DLNA support , can someone confirm this.
I need it to stream videos directly to a smart tv on the same network.
Also, does it have notification led?
mickey, 10 Jul 2015Otg cable doesn't working in e3 why? Please help meOtg cable not support why?
It's not a problem in the phone than in the software. From ice crem sandwitch Google has made the primary sd card is sd emulated as the internal memory. To solve the problem root the phone (find on xda forum) and download xposed framework, after that download xInternalSD. You can flash kernel to swap internal sd to external sd. Find on xda forum
Well this phone is just bad, the memory is so low and the batery is heating. Main problem is that the root wont work, i tried all youtube ways and it wont work. Never ever buy this phone if u like apps
Easy to solve storage issues.
Root Phone, install Link2SD and never have an issue again.
I went one further, reflashed stock, rooted, deleted all the sony junk, then did link2sd. Now it installs everything to my external sd card ext4 partition.
Internal sd always shows 1.5GB.
I do agree though, space sucks on this phone if you are not android savy and know ways around issue.
Bad worst phone, internal memory is big problem, cannot update apps. phone always shows storage space running out. And you can't never install big apps like asphalt games,
Sony experia E3 should have atleast 2GB internal storage,other features is normally ok.
it's front camera..#not enough..it's internal storage should be of 4GB instead given only 2 GB but the network Quality to catch the range is excellent.
