This phone is totally not good.. With video streaming issue and very fragile.. I just bought this phone 6 days ago and its totally dead. Not powering on. I just gave it for warranty and i have to wait 3 days. Hopefully they will replace it.

Other time recorded 1080p 5 minute video. No issues. Yes a bit fragile but mine look like new without any crack or scratch. Protect it with case and screen protector and it will last longer. It looks and feels so premium. WOW.
Yes, Z3 is made in 2014 but trust me it is 2016 phone. Go for it. Sony UI won't lag and battery life is superb, camera is very good.

I mean never shuts down due to heat up.and take good photos in daylight and decent photos in indoors and low light.
If you allow me then I want from you to give me a favor if you have XPERIA Z3 then kindly check how much time it will take to force close it self while taking pictures and recording 1080p.as I heard a lot things that it force close it self after 2 -3 minutes of usage.

Arogsm, 11 Mar 2016Sony is much better than LG. LG is much better than Samsung...I know that SONY is good in every aspect infect, flashing ROMS using Sony FLASH TOOL is way more convenient than that of SAMSUNG using ODIN.But comparing both XPERIA Z3 and LG G4, which one would be better in terms of CAMERA,PERFORMANCE,DURABILITY,BATTERY,and most important reliability.and also I have heard too much things about heating of XPERIA Z3 because of its waterproofing what is your experience in this regard.
Arogsm, 10 Mar 2016Z3 is better than even S6... What about LG G4 I am considering it over Z3.
My priority is CAMERA,PERFORMANCE,BATTERY,DISPLAY.DURABILITY.
I had Compact camera but according to my experience I would say If you want to buy Dedicated Camera then you should buy a DSLR,and if you want to buy a compact camera then I would recommend to buy Good Camera phone,because other than OPTICAL ZOOM and POWERFUL FLASH Compact camera does not perform better than SMARTPHONE CAMERA (like S7,S6,LG G5,LG G4,Z5,Z3,Xperia X series and even my friend's HUAWEI ASCEND G7).and who knows what will happen in 2017 and onward may be we will see xenon Flash and optical zoom in SMARTPHONE CAMERAS,as we have already seen xenon flash in smartphones like LUMIA 1020,N8,808 PUREVEIW,LUMIA 928, n82,SONY ERICSSON K800
Because I have compared SAMSUNG WB100 with HUAWEI ASCEND G7 and I did not see any difference,from here I gave my above mentioned opinion and I respect others opinion also, everyone has one's own opinion.
Thanks in anticipation
Xperia Z3 is a crap. It has a lot of overheating issues and when that happens, battery comes down as a lightning. There was a time when I charged it to the 100%, started playing FPSe emulator, and 3 hours later I was at 1%. 3 hours maximum Screen On Time. Think about it.
Using light applications like WhatsApp perhaps you get around 5 hours Screen On Time.
But playing games or using camera you get 3 hours maximum.
It could be because of an electric defect on the CPU unit.
anaz, 09 Mar 2016z2 or z3 ?Well, Almost everything is same bt camera performance is better in z2.. Colors look pleasant n well saturated compare z3's dull pictures.. Screen is more vibrant of z3 bt z2's camera captures better colors.. Z2 is also a bit cheaper than z3 n it has bigger battery.
