Also really recently my phone spazzed out and the audio went nuts. I restartes, same thing, then I turned it off and on and finally went back to normal. For those that want to buy this phone, please think about it first. Ask people who has the same phone about any feedbacks or critiques about the phone. Apparently the older models had the same problems....
Also the sound is fine but the camera is really disappointing. Even if it says 20megapixel it doesn't look as good as iphone photos
Ive had this phone for months now. I havent tried the water resistant part of the phone but this is what I can say about z3: there are some basics things that I miss when I used to use samsung. Imo its not worth the price. All im pretty happy about is the battery life. What I hated the most is the echo or feedback when talking to someone through a headset or bluetooth headset, it really frustrates me. Also having it in loudspeaker mode has it worse with echo or feedback. Im really disappointed of this phone to the point I want to switch to iPhone 6 (im not a fan of apple but this phone is changing my mind) coz my brother speaks well about it. So maybe I'll be switching to iPhone 6 but im still thinking about it. I dont think ill be getting a Sony phone for awhile (had a Sony xperia before as well and yeah it was horrible, and I gave it a chance for Z3...)

I don't ever see that phone being sold here in my country. that phone may be tough but is not as good looking as Z3 and is not available WORLDWIDE.
Jowieboy, 25 Feb 2015guys is it okay to have greenify, clean master and du battery installed at the same time?all those apps are useless. you don't need ram cleaning app or battery booster app on Z3, as Z3 manages ram wellm I tried DU but it doesn't look like it extends my battery life. Greenify app somehow does helps to have more free ram. Hibernating option is good. but is not really needed.

Have you ever tried comparing it to fujitsu arrows nx f02G? it will surely kicks the ass of sony.. and also you can take some shots in salt water... eat that sony fanboys
Performance wise its best but these days people like me are a lot concerned about the selfie mode and that SUCKS..
Seriously with everything fine why they say 2.2mp front 1080p HD camera.
Its freaking VGA.
My S4 is damm better than that.
Wrong decision to buy z3.

Man this phone has a stunning camera no matter what the lighting conditions are, simply superb, infact it's a complete smartphone in every aspect,love it!!
Sony has some very amazing phones and TVs too but their marketing is so bad. im based in kenya and people are stuck on sumsung because they have no clue what sony has to offer. I have been shopping for a phone for two months and i did not think about sony at any point. when a friend in the UK suggested I look at sony, i found so many options. wake up sony or hire me to help with your marketing strategy, especially in Africa.
