Anonymous, 09 Apr 20163 broken screens in 2 months, with Glass screen protection and hard cover . BIG Disappointment My Z3 screen never cracked.
I have a sony z3 almost a year now and no problems at all. The sony z3 battery is awesome! 100% fully charged for 2 days normal use.
3 broken screens in 2 months, with Glass screen protection and hard cover .
Gotta tell you I am disappointed. I have been using the phone for about a month and here are my initial impressions:
Phone: This is the main function, right? Opening the phone app is really slow. I have a good number of contacts, and that may be it, but its unacceptably slow. I often wait about 10-15 seconds for the display to give me the ability to open the dial pad so I can make a call. Everything I read said this processor was fast, but it has not been.
Bloatware: Beware the bloatware. Sony is terrible with this. There is a great deal of crap on this phone. One of the features, which could be cool, is "throw." This is an app that allows you to throw what is on your screen to another device (TV, etc.). Problem is, you can't shut it off and it continuously tries to connect to something, wearing out the battery, and frustratingly popping off and on the task bar. Sony has been absolutely no help in resolving this. They have no way of removing or disabling it, apparently, because everything they have suggested has failed.
Its a pretty phone, I like the size, the waterproofing is nice, the camera is fair, not outstanding as I might expect. The sound is reasonably good. The battery life is ok, but if you have a bunch of bloatware that you can't shut off running, I can't get through a day without recharging by 2-3pm.
I bought this because samsung has gone to having no SD card. I swore by samsung because of its removable battery and external memory card. Sony's battery is internal but you have a removable sd card.
I have had no problems with overheating.
mark, 09 Apr 2016what about the battery....? For how long can u play games ...?Depends on what games you play, i.e light games like Sudoku you can probably about 1 hour an lose about 20%. Moderate gaming like Temple Run about 1-1:30 hours can take about 20-40% and heavy gaming like Modern Combat can drain alot 30-50% in 1 hour. But please take these values with a grain of salt as these aren't exactly "accurate" and depends what you have on. I can push to 5 hours SoT (having 2% left over) by doing moderate gaming for 1-1:30 hours, 1 hour of browsing, 1 hour of Youtube
