The Z series screens are more sensitive than other brands and even Sony doesn't seem to know the reason. For me personally, that's a deal breaker.

All I'm saying is that the glass is not the issue (as some clueless trolls are ranting below that the glass is cheap). The Z series has a few cases of crack issues. One possible explanation is that its because of the water-proofing features of the phone. Since its water proof, it means it is water tight. And since its water tight, there is no ventilation. Because of this maybe, this causes a build-up of heat inside the phone, eventually causing the glass to crack. I think if you regularly open the charging flap of the phone, this glass cracking may not happen. I've been using my Z1C for over a year, using it in very hot places, and till now the glass didn't break.

Go down to the design section and read with your eyes. It appears that even Z2 uses gorilla glass 3 on the back, with dragontail on the front. The m2 has back plastic, and the front gorilla glass 3. Better luck next time troll.

Apparently, its a combination of design faults causing these screens to randomly crack. Every brand has some design faults, but this screen cracking is a major problem. Do your research online if you don't believe.

Dont be lie.. Please mention one. You can find that all Xiaomi flagship have gorilla Glass and cheapest Xiaomi Redmi 1s has cheaper dragontrail glass and many sites confirm it.

I've been using my Xperia z1 compact for over a year, its still all good, no cracks or such. I think people who use the phone carelessly face such problems. This is not the problem with the glass - no glass, whether it's Chinese made or Japanese made, will crack because of heat made by mobile processors.
John zapper, 06 Jul 2015This is a known problem with these phones.This cracking screen problem can easily be goggled and verified. Sony has a dedicated phone number for this problen in the UK

Does that mean they use cheap glass? Of course not. The z4 tab is the strongest tablet, and it uses Sony's glass, not dragontail. It might cost lesser than gorilla glass, but it is as strong as gorilla glass. Just go away, troll. Better luck next time.

Did you check the drop test of Xperia z3 and Z4 tablet? They both survived them without a scratch on the screen/backside. This proves dragontail glass is strong. Also, don't know if they are using dragontail glass still, it says that they use Sony's chemical protected glass or something. Whatever it is, its durable. Proof- drop tests of z4 tablet. Even the 10.1 inch z4 tab survived drop tests, it proves that their glass is strong.
DenisXD, 12 Jul 2015actually Z3 takes better photos, compare them.LOL no. Dx0mark, the professional camera testers, told that z3+ has the best Xperia camera yet. Scored 82, compared to 79 of z3.

Ive just find that cheap xiaomi redmi 1s has dragontrail glass while flagship Xiaomi Mi Note Pro glass is Gorilla glass. Its clear that dragotrail glass is cheaper and ofcourse sony screen is not very strong. Thats why screen protector is needed, and thats why there is user report screen cracking below...
Do read specifications from Sony official site before judging. =)

Yes, it needs to be 'protected'. Also its cheaper, in my country there is a local vendor use dragontrail glas for their cheap phone $100, and gorilla glass for their flagship. But if the screen protector(with its ugly dot stripes)can be removed easily, its a good news..
Things sony could have given :-
1. Quad HD
2. Better camera from its predecessors
3. A 4000 mAh Battery
4. Some more sensors (Fingerprint, Heart rate, etc...)
5. A new look ( A different one from its predecessors.)
6. Some new features would be nice.
Sony Xperia Z3 doesn't had much advancement from Z2. only some minute ones like looks, 4G availability (Z2 available in India does not support 4G.).
As a result, we all hope a better device (at least a QHD) but they did the same thing
Z3 Plus = selfie cam + dual sim + 32GB + Z3 and - battery
It can be expected like Z5 will only add a QHD and Battery to Z3 plus..... NOTHING IS GONNA CHANGE ON THAT....... Sony knows the business.... Whatever phones they release, they should stay in range in 50k and will have to fight up to samsung.... To compete S7, sony will come up with some another features @ the same price of Z3 plus......By that time sony itself will downgrade their present flagship model like they did to z2. GOOD LUCK BUYERS AND GOOD LUCK SONY..... :)
