Battery, looks great, waterproof
Reported mic issues (mic input too low), Loud speaker not loud enough on speakerphone, bend easily, Low GSM signal when compaired to iPhones/Note 4/ASUS PadFone on the same network. Rubber cap broke off after few months of use.
Yes...beware of bending!
Sony do not cover any physical form of damage. Spent around $150 to fix the bending, but now the phone looks like it have small gap between the top part of the glass and the side aluminium chassis.

To me, it is waterproof enough to be used out in the rain. But i would never ever take it into a pool or drown it.
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2015Does this z3 have heating issues? Thnx in advanceIf you are thinking in relation to the Z3+ that has heating issues, then NO.. This has a different chipset. The 810 in the Z3+ is known for not playing ball with you. I recommend anyone to select the Z3 than the Z3+ despite Z3 has lower processor power than X3+
Anonymous, 13 Jun 2015Does this z3 have heating issues? Thnx in advanceWhich phone doesn't but it never overhests. For me Z3 is the king of smartphones, it's been six months i'm using this beauty & it has never let me down. Love my Z3, it's right here with me to stay for looooooong!!
Xperia z3 : Heating and heating,lagging and lagging,Not that waterproof as sony shows and a lot of problems. Sony doesn't have idea of making high spec phones.Sony phones are totally waste of money.So friends it's your money and spend wisely.

Gaurav, 11 Jun 2015I bought dis z3 fone on 6 june.. Every thing was fine.. But dont know whats wrong after dat...... moreThts the nature. you sholud understand every mobile comes to the market is not 100% complete. some of them has bugs. thats why companys provide u WARRENTY periods. be positive. this is a execellent device even compareble to the samsung galaxy S6.
I purchased Sony Xperia z3v & 2 days later the USB cover snapped off. Phone isn't waterproof without the cover. Being waterproof was a major reason for my purchase decision.😕 No one has an answer about repairing or replacing the phone. Sony and/or Verizon aren't going to help correct the problem. I hope that before new versions are released for sale this common flaw is corrected!!
