Recent update for Sony Z3 dual made USSD codes to stop running - past four weeks now - Sony not responding.
Don, 27 Sep 2015How will I know if the Xperia Z3 is clone or original? Help please.. Also you can check by phone id:
Go to phone -> dial *#06# -> type that number to imei.info -> if you get information about your phone than it is original...
You can also install CPU-Z and check hardware...
Check benchmarks, camera, storage, etc...

I used my z3 more often than my note 4 :) because it's faster than samsung as i used them both
Trever, 26 Sep 2015So much hatred for this phone, surprising. Using it since Dec'14 & still works great, no i... moreMost of these people who comment negatively are obviously paid by samsung. You can understand it because their accounts in here are new, and their 1st and last comment is a negative one towards sony. Then they create a new one to post another negative comment. In some forums that someone was complaining about Z3 compact's screen crack by itself I saw that everyone who agreed with him was commenting for the 1st time! Like wow, don't people have better things to do? Like getting a real life?
Just like the other comment in here, throw some fairytale with a girlfriend and a pool and people will bite your trash, guaranteed.
It's pitiful ain't it? Some people are just technology servants.. pitiful.
Hey please dont post negative opinions.
This is excellent phone and all smartphones can heat if you use it wrong way (too long gaming or video shooting, etc....)
It works fast and smooth - with brilliant and lag free user interface.
Camera is perfect and battery life is amazing.
I never faced issues and problems - Also inserted 128 GB micro SD card.
Better than any Samsung with laggy touchwiz and worse ram management or any iPhone with lack of customization and worse battery life...
So much hatred for this phone, surprising. Using it since Dec'14 & still works great, no issues at all, will be sticking to it till it can survive. One of the best camers I've ever come across in a smartphone.
All true. The phone heats up for no reason. On December 2014 I got the Sony Xperia Z3 for my girlfriend. The phone worked fine for the first 5 days. It was even waterproof. Then the back of the phone cracked from the heat the phone was giving off. Ot went in for repairs and 9 months later we eventually got ot back. The phone is no longer waterproof, the camera especially overheats the system, forcing it to shut down and the back of the phone is busy ungluing.
The Sony Xperia Z3 is an expensive paperweight. It heats up to temperatures too hot to touch, constantly has to shut down applications due to becoming too hot, is not as waterproof as claimed, breaks easily and has a very poor battery life compared to other smartphones in the same class and price range. If you want to spend a lot of time and money on constantly having to send a phone in for repairs, then get yourself a Z3.
i've read many reviews on amazon saying that the sony xperia z3 is not really water proof. that this feature only worked once and the second time it died. also that because it overheats when using the camera for a long time, the screen will "unglue" eventually. is this true??
Due to super amloed screen, g s3 pics picture look better than any sony phone
Guys....my humble opinion.... Never upgrade. Use as it is. If you want an upgraded version..get a new phone with that features. Lucky I am not a camera kind of guy.
Worst camera ever, i have an old G S3 and camera is better, more vivid colors and video is better too. I am so ashamed of buying this phone.
