Terrible phone, Heats up. The sound is too low. short life battery.
Sony xperia Z3 is the best mobile .the only problem is overheating during some games and during taking pics and video, i just hope that Sony will solve this problems in his upcoming mobiles , i select 4 stars for Z3 ......................thanks
Shatterfree display... might be true, however one scrash and it is total unusable as the part of the quick response comes from the screen.
mine last one was xperia arc when it first released and I am totally satisfied,two days ago bought z3
its a fantastic phone,
an amazing phone,
much valuable than the price tag,
so many features,be patient to learn and handle those.
Any(my), 18 Aug 2015Never been disappointed with xperia smartphone but for z3 it really bad.I purchase on 1th Janu... moreplease every body has to understand there is big difference between water proof-ip65 and water tight when you put under water for time means you need water tight
this phone is a beast.. best android alternative if your not into iphone.. very smooth & good battery performance which lasts 1.5-2 days with 3g always on.. don't forget to turn on stamina mode for better battery timing.. thanks sony..
My Z3 has been loyal to me since Dec'14 till date, i don't care about all these negative reviews, it has everything I want in a smartphone.
Bought on 10/2014 and until today it was two times on repair because display is unstuck from rest of mobile phone...
You take it to make a call and see the display is half removed from phone....and it is heating when you use camera for long time, wathcing you tube also....

AnonD-373511, 18 Aug 2015Yes I too have the same problems. I had my D6603 since January, never had any issues up until ... moreExactly the same as mine. To test I did few things and found when I use some app it starts to get heated. Playing songs through Music or Poweramp, take photos or play video songs it get heated immediately. What is the use of this mobile then if I can't take photos, watch videos, or play music. Xperia Z3 has been my best purchase till now but with 5.1.1 I'm starting to hate it every second. Such a waste Sony who provides their flagship mobile such a poor service. Will not recommend anyone to buy Sony either hereafter.
Any(my), 18 Aug 2015Never been disappointed with xperia smartphone but for z3 it really bad.I purchase on 1th Janu... morethat's exactly what happened to me! They say it's waterproof but then my phone got damaged the first time i placed it underwater. And then they blame me.
please take time to read.
I bought my z3 compact last january from a sony store. The ad said it was waterproof and the video adverstiment even showed the device being used underwater. I used it once, knowing that it was safe since it was waterproof and it was clearly made for the purpose of using it underwater. A few hours after I used it in the pool, the screen went black and it didnt want to open anymore. I took it to the service center and guess what they told me. Water seeped in inside my z3 compact and various parts have to be replaced. They gave me a quotation of how much I needed to pay them for labor and parts. The total amount that I have to pay is almost the amount when I first bought it. It was around 23,000 pesos. In us dollars its 500. I would have to pay the amount of a new xperia to have my current one fixed because they said it wasn't covered by the warranty. These are their exact words "unit was found void warranty due damaged USB cap which caused liquid intrusion which is not a normal breakdown".
And to think that I have a food container worth 1 us dollar and liquid surely doesn't get in it or out of it.
PLEASE DO NOT BUT ANY MORE WATERPROOF XPERIA PRODUCTS.
also please tell me where I can complain here in the philippines.
Vino, 18 Aug 2015I'm getting irritated day by day. Have been using this from Nov 2014. Bloody hell it is behavi... moreYes I too have the same problems. I had my D6603 since January, never had any issues up until about a month ago. It all of a sudden started heating up very hot from very light use. Batter takes a lot longer to charge, I can't even take a couple pictures on superior auto mode without getting the temperature rising message and camera app closing. I don't play games on my phone, always have the screen brightness very low, I have an excellent cell signal, wifi is turned off when I'm not using it, I have literally no 3rd party apps that I use. It's very annoying. I did 2 factory resets and still have the same problem. Last week I made the mistake of updating to 5.1.1 and things have gotten really bad. My battery is constantly between 35-45 Celsius, the CPU jumps to 60-65 Celsius in a matter of a minute just from awakening the phone and browsing around in the phone. This is bad for the phone, I'm scared to even use it for more than a few minutes at a time because I don't want to fry my phone. I guess it's at the end of its life span or starting to die out. I never had any issues with heat up until a month ago so I don't understand what would cause this, my phone was working flawless and I was able to use it to do everything it was intended to do. Now I'm stuck with a pocket sized portable heater :-(
bought my Z3 in july
nice good looking phone, amazing battery life, amazing camera
