I'm a big fan of experia, however, I bought Sony Xperia z3 last year in January. It work great for 5months, but after I upgrade to lollipop. Wifi stopped working, I'm just using mobile data when connecting to Internet. I tried doing a factory reset and update but nothing works. After several month, it just stopped charging...
Well, I bought it online as brand new, and the Sony technician told me that my phone is not covered of their warranty. That sucks... But in my opinion, this smartphone have the best design. I loved it.
Btw, I also have have xperia z3 tablet, and it is having an issue with the wifi hotspot. I read articles and many z3 users are having some wifi problem with android lollipop.
Fede, 01 Apr 2016z3 or a5(2016) why?Same dilemma. But prefer Sony, a big player in smartphone, reliable, keep on improving n trustable. Last thing, Sony phone is prestigious, compared to Apple n Samsung.
Fede, 01 Apr 2016z3 or a5(2016) why?Z3 Because of more ram,better camera,longer battery life,lag free ui...
Don't think. Go for Sony.

Anonymous, 01 Apr 2016Lol.:) true. Trust me Sony is much better.YEAH I am a huge fan of SONY since the SONY ERICSSON days their designs ans UI both are awesome in those days and as well as now a days...and there aesthetic sense is much much good ...,I think After Sony,LG is good brand to buy ,But they just ruin their Smartphones Using QHD Screens.Come on LG Just learn from SONY, they made all of three versions of XPERIA Z5 (Z5 Compact with 720p Resolution, Normal Z5 with 1080p Resolution and Z5 Premium with 2160p(4K) Resolution.I don't know why, there is no market in my country and why they are not getting enough sales revenue that they deserve a lot.

Its available for 23,999.. z3 is fo... moreEvery electronics heats up.like your TVs,Computers,laptops,UPSs,e.t.c e.t.c,but for that purpose they have COOLING FAN and have larger surface area which ventilates heat quite efficiently,
Smartphones are compact type of computers and now a days they are powerful enough and and in my opinion they can be compared by some core i3 laptops,as cooling fans need power to work so to save battery drainage and compact sizes they don't have cooling fan and have less surface area for ventilation thats why they heats up more than other types of electronics. and in case of XPERIA Z3 it is also WATER RESISTANT there is possibility that it can heat a bit more than that of other smartphones with on water resistance,
Now a days there is some implementation of some heat pipes which have reduced some heating issue,
On the other hand more powerful the Processor and GPU you have more heat will produce, following link of YouTube will help you to figure out the heating of XPERIA Z3
I'd just like to let anyone who's considering buying this phone know that it is extremely fragile.
This is not a negative point if you are someone who never drops their phone, but as someone who doesn't take *perfect* care of their mobile, this device has failed on me three times, and cost me over $1,000 AUD in repairs.
I have had three or four phones prior to the Z3, and while I love the UI, feel and design of this phone, I have never broken a phone before this.
The major issue I have with this phone aside from it's flimsy, brittle screen is that due to its water proofing it is extremely expensive to repair, in or out of warranty.
The phone is also rendered useless after a single hairline crack; it does not matter how small the crack is, as soon as the glass is broken the entire phone ceases to respond, rendering in useless.
An iPhone or Samsung will still function after a crack, but the Z3 will not.
So if you are someone who takes great care of their device, disregard this, but if you are likely to drop your phone even once, consider a phone that does not break entirely from a 2 foot drop.
M.S.Y, 01 Apr 2016I think Z3 will get marshmallow for sure,not sure about ANDROID N,on the other hand if there w... moreRight now here in India there's this discount on z3 plus.. Its available for 23,999.. z3 is for 25,999. but most of them who've purchased those discounted phones from amazon are having lota complaints like camera shutting down due to heat, phone not charging fast enough, battery drains.. Almost feel lik its rejected stock that they r selling for so less.. But it surely is tempting to get such an amazing phone for that price.. z5 is for 40,000.. so that's outta question.. I searched online, saw reviews n found out almost every1 with z3 plus was having those issues, so it doesn't look like they r selling defective pieces on amazon but its a prob with the phone generally.. Its so confusing as I love sony UI.. Wish z3 doesn't have those problems, have ordered z3 on COD.. Just want to confirm before paying.. Orelse was thinking of nexus 5x which has its own set of issues n problms..

Thanks XDA Developers.
Don't worry about Marshmallow Because SONY is working very hard to make this update bug free,which is a time consuming task and I think It is pretty good on Lollipop also I would recommend to buy XPERIA Z3 instead of buying Z3+ which i better than Z3+,and you may also get it Cheaper.other than Z3 If you can afford Z5 then buy Z5 instead of Z3+.
I am confused between buying the z3 or the z3 plus.. As z3 plus has lot of heat issues am nt that keen on 810 processor.. z3 sounds much better but in India most retailers have stopped stocking that phne, they say its out of production.. Now am confused if its sensible to buy 3 gen old phone thats almost stopped manufacturing n still hasn't received marshmallow update.. will it receive future support?
please guys this phone isn't worth a dime. it's not reliable and is well overrated
I bought my Sony xperia z3 4mnths ago and I hav literally discarded it now for a Samsung.I threw it away in frustration, it's a total waste of money. disregard all the good stories u read about the phone, I too fell for it and bought mine after reading the reviews here,
it over heats for now reason, and later the screen calibration progressively malfunctioned. later the screen goes blank once u truth make calls. I took it to the service centre cos it was on warranty only to find out that they had moved. please if u stay in Nigeria or West Africa, steer clear of these Sony phones. reject it if given to you as a gift!! yes it's THAT BAD
