to those who bought this device, if you are facing reloading of apps often, disable smart cleaner
would be nice if Sony made it a bit larger screen than a room for that lower bezel, look for almost all LG`s phones
[deleted post]My experience with Z3C:
1. Perfect until now, since 14 months.
2. Thanks Sony.
I've had the huge phablet Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo for 2 years and I want a smaller phone. I was considering this phone or the z5 Compact and I am going to get this phone. However bad you say this 650 processor is, it will be far better than mine right now. I don't really need the extra power(the only power hungry app on my phone is Hearthstone, and it runs smoothly on my old Note) and I would rather have the new generation camera (for photos, I don't like shooting videos) and fingerprint scanner, and the new port usb type-c. It looks cute and I will be a happy girl with it :)
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2016Disagreed. 410 is too slow, even with the 2GB RAM. Processor is important, and you can also f... moreIf you want S650 or S652 in X Compact, it would need at least 3,000 mah battery. Such a big battery is going to add to the size. No so compact anymore, if not S625, might as well use S820 or S821. S650 is just lame.
Gsm please battery life review for this phone, i am pretty sure that they need very long time to test battery life :D.

I'm just saying so people don't get the false impression of the 'famous' quality some of you seem to know Sony from. I do, however, believe that some of you people do actually have as nice experience with your choice of Sony as you say. Just can't understand how some people take it so personally if there are negative experiences or opinions about these products. :/

I see your same post from months until now on many sony pages about your wife's m4 aqua which is probably not normal "defected", while in the other side, i see every moment on sony pages people saying " i had xperia z,z1,z2 or z3 from 2,3 years and still very smooth, like rocket or luxury like when i bought it " so what is your porpoise from mentioning your many times on sony pages???
Good news. The fingerprint scanner at first was not listed in the specs on Sony's website, now it is. So it appears the US version may get the option.
With this news I guess it's best to wait as you wouldn't get a warranty if you bought the international version. Also, the US model hopefully will have att bands 29, and 30 which are rolling out now.
I actually bought the z5 compact. Loved the phone. It gets warm which I can deal with, but it suffers from random lockups and reboots and there is no solution to this problem so I had to send it back.

And no, as long as their design-style is from a brick, I won't bother myself and buy one of them. Why are you trying to make people into buying these if it's clear that it's a no-no? Or well, the situation in which I would have to decide between Sony vs. Apple, it would be clearly Sony in that case... But that's too extreme example of a situation to happen. :-) But as I've said, I almost bought the Z2 instead of the HTC, but didn't as people started to post about gaps near the screen and rear camera. I was ready to cover the phone's looks with a case.

I could try one at the local phone store, but I would never blow away my own money into one of these. Simply I believe these aren't worth the high price, which also goes for HTC as well. High praises around the web, but personal experience with both has been nothing like people say. :)

I've already mentioned several times, I've owned a Galaxy S4 and while that was a decent phone with a custom rom (CM), it was horrible in stock-condition and unusable. So conclusion: never Samsung again, same goes for Sony as my wife's M4 Aqua was a disaster quality- and software-wise (parts falling off, like the rear camera unit; no adoptable storage-feature with Android Marshmallow-update) and I heavily dislike Sony's way to design a phone. Don't be a sheep and become a brand-fan, that makes no sense.
