Ok so i have had this phone since launch. And verdict is, TOP Class. I wouldn´t trade it for M8, S5 or Crapple phones.
Does have its pro and cons though.
-Excellent battery life with Stamina function to squeeze the standby to the limit. All thanks to a very good and optimised Android OS:
- Power under the hood
- Magnetcable snap on for charging.
- Slippy like a bar of soap. Use a bumper or a case.. (i use a flip case)
- Camera is not so good on Intelligent Auto. Needs improvement. Works best on Manual mode.
- Although great sound on player, still plays to low on volume like most Androids.
Needs root and xLoud mod for best feature.
- SMS app is crap and lacks features. Use Textra or other apps.
So yeah, In build and hardware it is great. Still needs some work on the Software.
SAM-06, 25 Feb 2015Sammy,im not sure of how it fell compared to the Samsung used to fall either hiting the ground... moreI've had a Samsung Galaxy S2 for like 2 years now, dropped it on the floor for probably 10-20 times or more and still the screen is perfectly fine. So I don't know what you're talking about.
costy, 28 Feb 2015we losing the price..to high..buy xiaomi mi4. good smartphone.cheaper price. high specification. really
AnonD-298938, 01 Mar 2015Omg I know right. It says 2.2MP but it's basically a camera that hardly beats any front camera... moreThe front-facing camera on the next year's iPhone could have more in common with its always-superior rear camera, as Apple is reportedly in talks with Sony about supplying the parts.
first read this.
Just today S6 launched with enforced glass back, but I agree that its appearance that counts than software. In all Chinese its same android more or less functions, so why pay double if appearance is not attractive. Sony is dying its natural death, closing all ventures except playstation depart. Design since inception is prototype. Change it fr good in Z4 .
ishu, 24 Feb 2015Performance wise its best but these days people like me are a lot concerned about the selfie m... moreOmg I know right. It says 2.2MP but it's basically a camera that hardly beats any front camera. Even the VGA camera in the iPhone 4s is better, and my iPhone 5s' 1.2MP front camera beats the 2.2MP camera easily.
UpsetSonyUser, 28 Feb 2015If you want a phone with a front screen and back glass that cracks for no reason, than this is... moreSure it is not a real sony z 3. you bought fake sony z 3. ha ha . don't say lie .
AnonD-366759, 28 Feb 2015The best camera in the market (20.4 MP) The best battery in the market (67 H) Slim, light, ... moreyes true. sony z 3 is best. music play 130 hours. 20.7 mega pixel camera. two days battery life. 3 gb ram. very good phone.
What the heck has Sony done? Just remake all those legends like Xperia Arc S, Ray, Active, Play, Neo V, etc., etc, with more RAM, larger screen, same UIs, more PPIs, Gorilla Glass 3 and latest Android versions. I am 100% sure you will scare the hell out of Apple and Samsung!! Lazy Sony. Ericsson was innovative..we can call you that b'coz with Ericsson gone you began to make dull phones!! And please lower the prices too Sony...most of your customers are not a Bill Gates..!
UpsetSonyUser, 28 Feb 2015If you want a phone with a front screen and back glass that cracks for no reason, than this is... morethats a worry, my Z1 has been spectacular in its resistance to clumsiness and down right stupidity. Start by a 1.5 metre drop on its corner into concrete ending up in 2 inches of water. It didn't skip a beat and the phone call was still going. It's been washed, underwater and dropped so many times and just keeps working. Should see my kids cracked iPhones as a comparison.
costy, 28 Feb 2015we losing the price..to high..price is not high for this phone. i have z3 and i think this is best phone ever. sony smartphones are very high quality. sony have beautiful design, good speakers, very good battery, briliant display, software with many options and waterproof and dust resistant.
If you want a phone with a front screen and back glass that cracks for no reason, than this is your phone.
The best camera in the market (20.4 MP)
The best battery in the market (67 H)
Slim, light, big screen, aluminum body, scratch resistant glass
The best specs compare to other smarphones!
The Z4 gonna be a beast! Can't wait to bought it!
I had iphone, samsung, and sony. Sony was the best without any doubt.
z3 if seen for now can be called as "super-smartphone"as the features and its performance is unbeatable.
Really impressed with this beautiful phone, works like a charm, superb phone from Sony.
