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
Anonymous, 20 May 2016how is its camera low light,indoors and day light and I heard it heats up while using cameraCamera isn't the best but super. Can heat due heavy gaming and long video recording. But every phone heats. Don't worry Z3 is awesome phone.
