why lollipop update has those big ugly app icons?
is there any way to make them normal like kitkat?
Sony is the best Battery Life Performer right now because:
- Sony's Saving Battery Mode "Stamina Mode" is very effective & efficient.
- Sony's Li-ion & Li-polymer Is the Top Quality Battery Cell, IMO the best battery cell in the world is Sony, Panasonic, and Sanyo (Japan Cell).

Xperia is the coolest phone there is, all i wanted was a
better processor and gpu and they delivered, now its
the perfect device for remote play and android games
with the dualshock 4. Its almost stock android which is
best and AMOLED 2K screens are cool but i can settle
for lcd and its benefits of a slimmer/lighter device and
better battery life. Sony aims perfectly at its target
demographic which is people with a ps4, that love
gaming and going to the pool, jacoozi or taking a bath
everyday. As far as people complaining about the
design? Dont fix what is not broken, Sonys name is
awesome and so is the design from an artistic point of
view, the sleek subtle designs, logo and accessories to
accent the phones qualities (gaming mount, magnetic
charger for maintaining ip68). It sells great in Japan
but not here...marketing is bad out here, i sell phones
for verizon and my manager gets mad when i sell the
phone because it doesnt gain good gross profit for
retailers and other employees dont sell it because sony
offers no incentives. samsung goes out the door like
crazy because the employee pay checks go up with
cash spiffs and better gross profit. we hate selling
apple because theres no gross profit and no cash spiffs
but at least there is crazy accessories all over the
store to help our pay checks.
SONY I LOVE YOUR PHONES AND I SELL THEM FOR
PERSONAL REASONS BUT PLEASE FIX YOUR
MARKETING IN AMERICA, OFFER MORE GP TO
STORES AND INCENTIVES TO EMPLOYEES TO SELL
THEM AND YOU WILL SEE THE CHANGE!!!
ps when its slow i play on my game mount and show
off the ds4 with modern combat 5 and it sells its self,
too bad i have to defill the phone cause theres never
any in stock!
use ur brain-in usa people buy a sony phone to play PS4 GAMES THROUGH REMOTE PLAY.AND WITH SUCH HEAVY GAMES(PlayStation games are mind blowingly graphics intensive) , IT DOESN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS -BECAUSE IF IT HAD ANY PROBLEMS, HOW DID SONY Z3 RUN OUT OF STOCK IN USA??(it ran out of stock and people had to wait for a month after registration for new stock to arrive from sony -would people buy in such large number if it had any issue????
Bryll, 24 May 2015Thats not true...Unfortunatly, about 25% of all Sony "Z" series phones have self cra... morego away troll and buy a real sony phone.do u even know what 25%means???u see friends, samsung has failed miserably with s6-with low s6 sales.and people are buying z3 in large numbers -z3 ran out of stock at t-mobile in usa.so samsung is resorting to such bashing like this.use your brain-do u really think glass cracks??no it doesn't. its a fiction created by trolls.
TannHauser, 19 May 2015Go google z3 drop test on youtube and see for yourself if it dies meet your standardsyes, the screen is very fragile and this is a.known problem, but Sony won't afmit it...approx 25% of all 'Z' series phones are having self cracking screens....google it and see for yourself
TannHauser, 19 May 2015Nope, but there is 1: 30 000 chance you ll get a selfcracking defunct unitThats not true...Unfortunatly, about 25% of all Sony "Z" series phones have self cracking screen problems. And Sony is denying it. Do a google search to see thousands of complaints on forums and even some dedicated facebook sites about this major problem. Bad service and design from Sony...too high of a risk for me.
hellenw, 23 May 2015Why does my camera show blur images, its not clear and am so disappointed now, are all the cam... morego to xperia photo academy site -learn tips how to take DSLR QUALITY PHOTOS FROM THIS AWESOME PHONE.u tell blurry becausr u don't know how to use this insanely awesome camera.go ask any renowned photographer which smart phone camera they prefer-they will say the XPERIA Z3.IT HAS ISO 12,800 FOR GODS SAKE.
Where did the "xperia with facebook" option disappear after the lollipop update??
Why does my camera show blur images, its not clear and am so disappointed now, are all the cameras this way? Help please shod. Update or what??
i am from india and i must say-sony made a fan out of me.i really loved the copper z3 and bought it.and by god,it looks so awesome.MOVE OVER IPHONES...Z3 KICKS ASS.and samsung??i don't care about their copy cat phones anymore after getting myself this beauty.
screen top notch with quantum dot ips panel with NANOCRYSTALS(SHORTLY CALLED TRILUMINOS) with the highest brightness in the world.compared it with iphone 6,htc one m8,s6 and z3 holds its ground like hell-awesome.wowww!
stereo speaker, waterproof,dsee,high res audio!THE CAMERA IS AWESOME.the battery easily lasts 2 days.
my rating-11 outta 10...one xtra point TO SONY for GIVING A REAL PRACTICAL PHONE INSTEAD OF CHASING GIMMICKY SPECS LIKE SAMMY,LG ETC.
I have some issue on speaker and submitted for service last month 27th till date they haven'treturned my phone very low service in India
I was the owner of Samsung Galaxy S4 before I switched to use this Sony Xperia Z3. One of the biggest problem I had before was the battery... I usually have have my phone charged all night long and have its battery 100% full in the morning. With the amount of work I have to do with my phone, my Samsung Galaxy S4 often get out of battery around 3pm to 4pm. Since I switch to use this Xperia Z3, the problem is Long gone. This phone's battery is GREAT. Repeat... GREAT. Not only it lasts all day long with the same amount of work,it continues to last all night long and without recharging the battery at night I still get up on the 2nd day with the battery level of around 30%... Best battery performance phone I have ever used... Premium unibody and still offer water proof and SD card... so satisfied
[deleted post]friend first i eould like to cancel s5 from ur list for the following reasons-
1.the design is same as all phones of samsung from cheap price.u buy a s5 and it looks the same as grand2,grand max etcc
2.the display is short lasting.google-amoled degradation. it becomes yellow n loses brightness. as in rgb panel,blue pixels in amoled degrade very fast leaving unbalanced red and green giving yellow hue.also google-amoled burn in.
3.it uses overheating exynos.
4.camera has poor performance in low light as s5 camera doesn't use sony exmor sensor.(samsung uses sony exmor camera in s4,s6,note4).but samsung was greedy and used low quality isocell sensor in s5 that produces severe noise in low light.sony exmor is gold standard of camera sensors(used by iphone,sony xperia,samsung, xiaomi,nikon dslr,etc BUT SONY RESERVES BEST SONY SENSORS FOR XPERIA,ALPHAS AND CYBERSHOTS)
5.POOR BATTERY THAN Z2 AND 3...
*BETWEEN HTC AND SONY -go for sony as
1.sony has the best QUANTUM DOT IPS(TRILUMINOS),XREALITY PRO,AND BRAVIA ENGINE.z2 has phosphorled...z3 has live color led...z3 is the best among all phones u listed as it has the highest brightness and contrast among all ips panels. htc doesn't even compete with sony display.
2.best low light camera with the best sony sensor.ISO-12,800FOR Z3.THE BEST.with huge 20.7mp sensor.
3.WATERPROOF..HTC IS NOT.
4.SONY SUPPORTS WIRELESS MAGNETIC CHARGING..
5.BATTERY BACKUP-SONY IS THE KING OF BATTERY BACKUP.2 DAYS GUARANTEED AS I MYSELF GET MORE THAN 2 DAYS...
BETWEEN Z2 AND Z3-i make it simple.if u can afford z3 go for it..if u can't z2 is still much much much better than htc and samsung.
The Sony Service Center in Indonesia is very very bad!!!
The service center only gives promises like "Your phone will be taken into repair in a minimum of 2 weeks and maximum of 2 months", and reasons such as late spare part period such as 2 months, 3 or even 4 months. And a lot of them are currently left wondering about their devices status for months. Also some users had to have their devices replaced fully but no like their previous device( such as different device color than the previous device they bought), and this is of course after a lengthy repair too. And some also has considered "not to buy XPERIA anymore"
talha cool, 20 May 2015Its a very good phone i like it than samsung its amaizing one
Osman, 20 May 2015Sony :smartphone, not a good idea.

Hamilton, 15 May 2015Hi WhiteShadow, thanks for your comment.
some people say that Lollipop you can still pull dow... moreYes, the notification bar can be roll down even if it is in locked mode except when the light goes off.
I upgraded my Z3 into lollipop via PC (much recommended).
