Why is about 50% of these reviews or opinions negative as hell, ive been using my phone for just a year now as my contract upgrade and its doing really well 4.4.4 kit kat was brilliant 5.0 update i will admit was an absolute failure but i see alot of comments sayimg battery issues and saying it jumps amd saying go to samsung but 5.0 android was a absolute failure so samsung, sony, motorola, and other big companys that received the update all suffered the famous galaxy's werent working with headphones, xperia's were battery and others were various, cause 5.0 was rushed so it wasnt completed in time, then 5.1.1 came out fixing these as i noticed as time went on it improved and it worked better for me, and moving on to the beta of marshmallow for z3 and its a compltely diffrent phone, i habemt the offitial release but its got alot of bug fixes, apps load faster, battery lasts longer, camera has faster focus, and is overall a smoother and great experience, i swear by mine, basically what im tryimg to say is if you find a fault with one thing on a system likely hood it may be on another phone, they all run diffrent systems, granted samsung add touch wiz ui (please do away with it samsung i know a few folk that hate it) but my opinion, but its the same base code of android, its like windows it can have a disc read error in the code, it dosent matter if its acer, sony, toshiba or dell its still gonna have that fault untill microsoft patch it, same goes for google with android

Raj, 25 Jan 2016hellow frnd plz help me, sony z3 D6603 this model is useable in asia continen.....? plz help me...Yes, it is international version, it works almost everywhere. Mine is D6603 too. I'm from Georgia.
Had my Z3 for a year. At first I was very happy with it, then after a while it started falling apart:
- It's NOT water proof, the build quality is simply too poor. I ruined one Z3 taking it into the pool (everything sealed). Luckily the shop gave me a new for free.
- The battery gets too warm, which makes it expand (using 4K camera for 30 seconds). As there's glass on both sides, one will break when this happens. Broke 3 front screens and 2 back screens in 3 months due to this.
Sony will provide NO service at all and when it breaks due to overheating, which is a known problem with this Snapdragon processor, they blame it on a fall. Further Sony provides NO global service and they shut down most of their service centers. After calling/writing Sony more than 10 times and visiting 3 of their service centers, I just gave up.
This will be my last Sony product ever!

Thank you Sony for this amazing update...
Good specs, good design, good performance, good battery. Really enjoying this device. Got bored of Samsung and I switched to Z3, it's really a good device with executive looks. Camera is also superb. The front cam just needs improvement but still the device is awesome. Really loving it....
