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:-)

I had it for a week and it started to heat up after 20/30 minutes on the Internet..not ayoba for such a great phone. i am a Sony fanatic, but after that experience, i'm not so sure anymore. Someone pls tell me their handset is NOT heating up?
why sony walkin in moile market if they dont have partner like ericsson earlier they do best in industry n now they are just out of market
There is some problem with respect to sound settings. Couple of months I posted a question for changing ringtone as it says Unknown Ringtone. I can set that through music player, but the issue is with Notifications. Unlike earlier, it doesn't show the inbuilt notification ringtones. Also If I try to set some customized from Internal/External memory it doesn't set. Again it shows Unknown ringtone. Bloody crap this is. My Whatsapp doesn't have a notification tone, it sounds some tick as though speaker is not working. Ridiculous by Sony. Can someone help, I don't want to factory reset as I have almost 5.5 GB of apps and games in my mobile.
I've been using this phone for 3 months and i hva had no issues so far. But i'm not a heavy user, mainly for browsing and calling. I have the 2sim version and the only difference is the battery life, which is still not bad, full charge may last for 1.5-2days for me. What i like in this phone is its design and ips display, quite close to the iphone i had used before it.
Wishing you all & your families a very very happy new year, have a great year.
guys we all know note 4 is much better then z3 , BUT 5,7 inch is to big for mobile phone . That why i never buy note 4 . Dont think if that sony is not popular is not good quality . I think z3 is very good phone . Pls someone who have z3 write here his experiance ?

Tamer, 31 Dec 2014from my experience, Note 4 is better and more usable From my xperience note4 is too big to be usable as a phone. plus full of specified features most users actually dont need or use...
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2014Worst phone ever! Battery last only 2 hourDo you often keep your phone in the crack in your back? I think it is the reason for the poor battery life!
Coming from HTC One m8, here are my observations from 2 months with Xperia z3: Software is very laggy after the m8, keyboard as well. Freezes from time to time as well. In 6 months with the m8 i had to restart it only a few times. With the z3 its few times a week. Hope it gets better with android l. Otherwise it has a nice build, I even dropped it a few times with no problems. Volume on the headphones is useless! They advertise it as audiophile phone but actually its not good. Speakers are good for music, but when it comes to calls or skype its near to useless because of the low volume and tinny sound.
