I am truly disappointed with this phone and with Sony in general. Quality of manufacturing is rather poor, phone is very easy to scratch and assembly is imprecise (the glass panels are sticking out of the frame). I would expect to have something like Corning Gorilla glass II or III for that price, but here is just a tempered glass. Worst of all it is not water proof - I put mine in the bathtub for as long as 10-15 seconds and the phone is permanently damaged. Even though Sony says it's IP68 rated they don't cover any water damage.
Anonymous, 19 Mar 2015is it worth to change iphone 5 for Z3? i like Z3 but i dont know if i'll regret leaving iphone 5.. I phone 5 doesn't even stand close to Z3 in any aspect, my friend has an i phone 5 with wireless charging all the time,while i don't even carry a charger atleast for 2 days.
sammy, 28 Feb 2015shock resistant???? are u stupid or what its the most fragile phone i have a broken z3Main fell on tiles in the first day I bought it and it only has a very small scratch in a corner, but it fell from approx. 70 cm ON TILES :))
I think that's a pretty good resistance test fr a phone with glass on the back, isn't it? :D

-Excellent battery life.
- A good processor
- point 1.: Slippy like a bar of ... moreYep, so slippery, I? just bought it yesterday evening and when I got home, I took it out from my purse and, because I wasn't used to it's size and also because it is so slippery, has glass on both sides, fell on the tile :((((
But i was incredibly lucky that the screen remained untouched and the back as well (thank God).
As slick and sexy as it is, as slippery it is!
Tomorrow I receive my case, without it I'll most certainly break this gorgeous jewelry...

chris, 18 Mar 2015ive had this phone for a while now.. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE or any sony phone for that matter ... moreWhy would you pay that much to repair it,,, Nonsense story. Don't you got better things to do??!! Haha
It is so weird as I saw many people reported on Xperia blog.net this issue. My phone is international edition that I bought it from us D6603
Really I don't know what is going on or what to do?
ive had this phone for a while now..
DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE or any sony phone for that matter
the screen has cracked twice and the phone is useless once it cracks (touch screen technology is integrated into glass). they are trying to make it thinner and thinner so they have made the glass thinner as well making it much easier to break. costs about 300 to get the screen fixed.so it went from costing my 700 to 1300.
THIS PHONE IS INCREDIBLY FRAGILE AND WILL BREAK IF DROPPED
NOT WORTH THE $700
This looks awesome lollipop update
I have had Sony Xperia Z3 for 2 weeks by now and very pleased about the new gadget, First the speed as fast as iphone 6.
Second the battery is for about/average 36 hours (well it can be 48 hrs or more, if you don't play music, streaming etc I think).
Third: it is water resist.
Fourth: it has a magnetic cable charger, to keep your water resist(normal cable charger long lasting), Samsung S5 has no this function
Fifth : Memory can be extended by sd card
6th :speaker and audio/video: is excellent (brand quality of Sony). I use my iphone headphone: it is the best combination.
7th: beautiful design,it seems a durable & solid product.
8th: the price is below Iphone
I have an older Sony Mini Xperia I love it also it has an attachment type area that can connect to a neck tie. Do the other experia have that attachment. It certainly would avoid it being dropped.
Amro Gamal, 17 Mar 2015but 23.0.1.A.5.77 is related to 4.4.4 and I see that many people around US and UK have complai... moreYup mine is also on 23.0.1.A.5.77, no issues so far ringtones & notification sound are pretty loud enough, both speakers working really well, call quality is also great.
best mobile ever experienced specifically i can carry it even under water :)
I thought long and hard about purchasing this device. I was torn between getting this or waiting for the M9. Already own the M7 so naturally the M9 would be perfect for me.. but... i wanted to switch things up and i decided to go with the Z3. I do no regret my choice, this phone is sexy, sleek, water resistant, great vibrant screen with great brightness, has nice loud speakers, has a lanyard hole (cool), and last but not least this thing lasts A LONG TIME on one full charge. I'm still in love with my M7 because it has been so great to me but this Z3 is my new daily driver and i'm loving it. You will not regret buying this device.
R, 17 Mar 2015Did anyone else experience the Z3 light turning green while charging even though the battery i... moreIt changes to green as soon as it hits 90. Sony thinks 90% is good enough charge, so it will be orange when charging right until it hits 90%. I also thought it was weird but oh well..
