sold my z3 last month to get Redmi Note 3 Pro 16/2, and i must say i make right decision.
hardcore games that lags on full graphics setting on z3, works smoothly on RN3P.
why consider this overpriced fragile phone(you should put cargo fragile sticker on it lol) since u have lots of better options, i most recommend Xiaomi.
this RN3 have the faster-than-801 first in world to use snapdragon 650, among the fastest graphics driver available, Adreno 510.. fingerprint sensor, IR sensor, pure metal body, 4050 mAh battery that surely outperform Z3, beats Z3 in Antutu test, and MIUI8 coming soon. all of that priced less than secondhand Z3!
Anonymous, 22 May 2016It can be happen due heating.oh then that's bad, then the phone is too fragile even for normal usage, its like its constructed like a shell of an egg, even the slightest contacts could crack the phone :/
Anonymous, 20 May 2016Hey Chap1 I want to buy this phone what do you say give me your honest opinionYes ofcourse,but read this mini review; there is no perfect phone! Z3 has an awesome screen; its clear and sharp(ips lcd this time,not ugly tft like z and z1),the z3 screen is much brighter than any samsumng amoled(brightest amoled is still s6 with 560 nits brightness while z3 has 730 nits,only iphone has over 700 nits brightnes); z3 is very fast and nuch more fluid than samsung or lg: ram is well optimised,UI is fast,fluid and beautiful.Camera;u wont like it at first,but when u explore all the camera settings and modes u will like it.So go for z3

Hazoom, 22 May 2016Plz guyz z3 or z2???? And why???Go for Z3. Because of better battery life, less heating, premium look, faster processor, chance to get android N...
Hazoom, 22 May 2016Plz guyz z3 or z2????
And why???Z3 -
1) Smaller in size
2) Nylon edges, reduces the drop impact
In Some markets, this comes with noise cancelling headset (five band)
If you are not a diehard on Xperia, I would recommend S5 which is an overall better phone.
D6603 variant is global and mainly europe based where D6653 is mainly based on Asia. When both variants are unlocked you can use them regardless of where you are so you don't need to worry as I have bought my phone in Hong Kong and I am using it in UK. However depending on where you bought your phone OS updates may be faster/slower as Marshmallow still hasn't come out for Hong Kong I'm still stuck on lollipop even though I live in the UK, just something to be aware of.
HI to all prestige owner of XPERIA Z3, I am the person who own Z3 t-mobile (D6616), you have read my story in early days, I have researched a lot and looked for other options but I can't disregard Xperia z3, I have consider following phones other than that of XZ3
LG G4( some serious bootloop issue)
SGS6(no SD-card,AMOLED, small Battery),
Xperia Z5 ( SD 810 heating history scares me, I don't know about its battery life,also it is 100bucks more than Xperia z3,)
HTC m9 ( same SD810)
So, I am thinking to give second chance to Xperia z3 but at this time (D6603),help me guys to get best value of my hardly earned money consider that I have always lost my savings for no use....
Guys I have watched video of Xperia Z5 in which it records 4K for a long time for about 40 minutes, so it seams despite of have overheated SOC SD810 it does not force close it, I love SONY and want to buy Z3, I can't find any video of Z3 regarding 4K heat test, I am not fan of 4K just want to know about heating while recording 1080p @ 60 fps and 720p @120fps, and also does it is stock camera app that force close it or if we use third party app it will also force close,guys help me I have believe in you,give me your honest opinion should I buy this one or is there any other better option than Z3 under 250 USD,thanks in anticipation
