darkraver, 02 Jan 2015I guess you are dependent on camera auto mode only, and do not know how to use manual, so yes,... moreAre you trying to say that there are modes in which you get fixed geometry or high details and working autofocus?
I doubt it... This can't happen with a piece of hardware whose only purpose was to state the 20.7MP (pretty unusable/unreachable in 16:9 or different settings) and the crappy software support in terms of the "superior (?!) auto" mode. I will shoot only within the dinosaurs' mode - at least nobody would look what was the purpose of the picture :)
Although I hated my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy SIII) I have never had such camera issues.
And yes, If I need high quality pictures, I use my EOS 700D and I perfectly know how to use it. With a phone with a dedicated camera button I just take device out of my pocket and snap. That's it. I would never bother with manual settings.
DJV, 02 Jan 2015Hi,
I have been a hardcore Android / Samsung user since 4 yrs now. My previous phones were ... moreI've been using Windows Phone for a couple of years now and really like the OS. However, Windows Phone does not allow you to enjoy the full Google experience because Google do not support the Windows Phone platform. That said, there after plenty of third party applications that fill the gap, where Google refuse to release an official application.
I have been a hardcore Android / Samsung user since 4 yrs now. My previous phones were galaxy y - 6 months, galaxy ace 7 months, galaxy s2 - till date.
I am looking for a change now and the confusion is between the 2 devices 1) XPERIA Z3 2) LUMIA 930.
I am kind of bored using the same OS AND SAMSUNG PHONES for years now and looking for a change, but my peers keep on telling me that I would not be able to move from Android to Windows OS as it is a frustrating experience. For eg, the GMAIL APP in Windows is useless and it cant attach documents/photos etc.
I really want to switch from those samsung devices and try something new maybe a xperia z3 or a lumia 930 but I expect atleast the basics from Windows OS. Please help me out on these confusions guys. Happy new year to you all
This phone has some camera,love taking pics with my Z3, no matter what the conditions are,brilliant!!

jj, 01 Jan 2015I'm actually disappointed with all the reviews that I had read before buying this phone, incl... moreHave you tried going into manual mode and lowered the
ISO level to 100-200.This should give better looking low light images. It does wonders for my Z1 but not sure if it works for Z3.
phone cannot even getting protected for small falls,z3 display break quicker than other xperia z series
I'm actually disappointed with all the reviews that I had read before buying this phone, including yours GSM Arena!
Phone is great in terms of design, build quality, battery life and functionality, but if you wanted to stay on top of reliability of your reviews, you should have destroyed Sony for the pathetic camera. There are no straight lines even within the pictures in your review and the "superior auto" mode is useless - I can get less than 10% usable indoor pictures: crashed colors, funny smoke effect not present in the room, missing flash way too often if there's a light source in the scene. Other modes (like normal) may provide good picture after 2-3 minutes of tuning and 2-3 tries. And image details are absolutely disappointing too even on day light.
So, Sony, this camera is complete rubbish! You should have known better (same valid for the reviewers here). It's too late to fix the wrong geometry with the camera, but at least go fix that superior auto mode!
great phone excellent battery timing no heating issue but there is one issue in my set, games lag like temple run 2 and the maze runner.1.3gb ram is free but still games are lagging any one please help me if any one else have this problem...

But will get settled as you use it. It will almost be burning when you take 4k video for quite a long time. But nothing to worry about that. Overall this is an excellent phone except for a few s/w glitches.

Tamer, 31 Dec 2014from my experience, Note 4 is better and more usable AND more expensive.
Hi all....I had the Z3 for a week, but after heating up after 20/30 minutes on Internet, I returned it. Do u also experience heating up problems? Thx for your feedback:-)
