Awesome: camera, speed, memory, 4k video?!! thin as a biscuit and waterproof. Do you really need this much processing power in a phone?!
Not so good: slippery as a fish without a case, box packaging seems flimsy and cheap and the location of the buttons makes holding the phone difficult - Sony should have copied Apple. Grip much improved by a good case such as Incipio.
In short, the hardware is unbeatable but, for a top-of-the range phone, Sony should put a bit more work into design and ergonomics, because I found it almost unusably difficult to hold without a case.
Beware 'SHATTERPROOF GLASS" as stated in specifications. Mine slipped from my pocket, fell approx. 400mm, smashed the front glass and made the touch screen inoperable. Avery fragile phone. No one wants to know about it, Sony / Telstra unless you have $300 for a repair as it not only the glass that breaks! It's going in the bin.
AnonD-214733, 16 Feb 2015Overpriced. And nothing new feature in it. Better go for other brands.There is plenty of Low End cell phones you can go with, but if you Quality/Reliable cell... go with SONY Z3 beast.
Xperia sp user don't be upset for not receiving kitkat. I used CM kitkat and the performance of gaming became low. Also wifi signal became weaker. I think sony did the right thing, if they provided kitkat with bad support, you would be even more angry.
won't ever buy a sony phone after what happened on SP. promised update to 4.4 from the launch then ditched it. they don't even fix the ambient sensor problem, shame on you sony. they do this to every phone from X8 era, best support my ass.
Love this phone! Bought from Singapore : )
I am an XPERIA lover eversince... In fact, I still have my old Sony Ericsson unit...
People who complaining about price,,, please go buy Low End / Quality cell phone, since SONY Not for you! Haha

I thought Sony xperia Z3 is good quality because of the price of 36,000
But I don't think so because my xperia Z3 I bought last Jan.and the earpiece is already not wworking for just a month of using...it's so annoying...
People need to stop taking phones for dives be it in the swimming pool or anywhere. There are proper dive equipments available for diving.
