This phone is great, great size, great performance, great screen, great camera, great UI design (friendly user interface), and it has fast charging (docomo version). Unlike Samsung and other vendor, it has almost no bloatware so it saves your memory and increase its performance.
If there is a problem, I find it only on the battery. After it got upgraded to Marshmallow, the overall performance are superb. But the battery is draining slightly faster when data connection is On, and more when you're online. No heating problem except it got warmed when playing certain games. I recognize, some games or apps are simply "badly coded" and some are "well build". Those badly coded ones will make your phone (any phone) warmed up or in some case heated up. The point is, Z3 battery performance is lower after the upgrade.
I hope, it can get update to nougat or higher. I really love this phone, this phone is almost perfect l. The keyword is "almost", because nothing is perfect.

Anonymous, 19 Sep 2017got my Z3 today~ might do factory reset and small tweak before using itfrom which place you bought the phone..?
Did SONY fix the pink spot problem while taking picture using rear camera???
Hi to all I'm back. My Z3 got the paste loosen up the back and front cover but I managed to put super glue and now still great after 3 years of usage.
Anna , 16 Sep 2017Hi! Is the xperia z3 better than xperia xa1? Which one takes better photos? XPERIA XA1 definitely. Even if it is a mid-end smartphone, the performance is almost the same as XPERIA Z3 since newer smartphones already surpassed XPERIA Z3's level. Taking photos definitely the main attraction for XPERIA XA1. It takes better photos with lesser noise and u will not regret buying XPERIA XA1 :)

Should I buy this or XZ Premium? Might use it for playing game (currently using iPhone SE),
I dont care about the Camera, I mean would it worth for now (2017 Q4) to use Android 6.0 which is the last update (CMIIW) for gaming? I afraid soon Android 6.0 is unusable to Play games in short time... (I never use Android for almost 4 years so I dunno is 6.0 is lack of apps or no)

Hi! Is the xperia z3 better than xperia xa1? Which one takes better photos?
OK.. Where do I begin? I am not the kind of people who writes reviews here, but after I bought this phone I felt that I have to. long story short, this device is AMAZING. I got my Z3 a week ago, my galaxy s5's screen was acting Strang, so I needed something reliable. I was about that close to get a galaxy s7 for 420$, and suddenly I ran into this z3 in some random mobile shop. This phone was the docomo version, white, almost not used with a very tiny dent into the upper frame. I got it feeling like gambling cause my last experience with Sony wasn't great. It was on 5.0.1 lollipop and yes what I was afraid of was there, HEAT 🔥. But the good news it was unlocked and I got a bunch of updates both from Android and Sony, during that process, I was able to fry an egg on the back of the phone. I spent almost the whole night updating and fixing the phone settings. I checked the android version and it was 6.0.1 marshmallow. I made a hard reset and restarted the phone and it was GOD.. A whole new phone, fast, fluid, beautiful and no heating issues whatsoever. OK I don't play games at all so I don't know about that. Anyway, as there's no perfect phone there are few cons, no stamina mode after the update, can't have an icon in the quick settings for choosing among general, silent or vibration like all the other phones in the market. YES the battery is draining faster than before cause I tested that before updating to marshmallow. But definitely not drastically, the battery life is still better than all the phones I owned before. But all those cons aren't a deal breaker. It's worth updating to have a wonderful device. The camera is good day and night. But not better than the new galaxies. I like the vibrant ( oversaturated) colores in Samsung cameras. The Xperia cameras are a little dull but who cares. And the icing on that cake 🎂, I got this powerhouse with only 120$. Dropped it twice on the floor and nothing happened, thank God.
