I purchased the Sony Experia Z3 on the date of launch after getting fascinated by its features and looks. However the overall experience is par below my expectations and the reasons are as follows..
1. I am unable to delete message strings from my SMS inbox even drafts are not getting deleted. Every message has to be deleted one by one which is very very irritating.
2. The 3 GB ram doesn't give a feeling as the processing is not electric and big let down.
3. Camera the auto focus takes lot of time to focus most of the times and requires big time improvement.
4. Charging takes lot of time in comparison to other similar high end phones of other companies.
5. So far as user friendliness is concern lot is desired and Samsung beats it hands down.
Net net not a great experience using the Experia Z3 except the look and feel. Also despite giving feedback on their website tey neither respond nor take it positively or rather seriously.

We are a real Sony users and we have real experience in Sony Z lineups
Don't mind, this guys,
They are Samsung/ LG trollers and they always tell about non removable battery
Without having Sony Z lineup, They also tell the fake story
Don't explain to plastic persons,
Have a nice day,

I cannot remember the last time I dropped my device. I also never put an ugly case on my devices. Why cover up such beautiful design. And don't you have insurance?? Educated decisions are not required but suggested, take some time to read about what you can do to improve your ability to handle a device such as this & you'll have better results in the future.

This is a good device for playing ingress. As it's weatherproof getting it wet doesn't matter and thanks to it's battery you can play for four hours without having to charge.
Strange really, i've never had a problem with the glass breaking even though I have the Z Ultra which as you will be aware is nearly 1 and a half inches bigger than the Z3. I have it in my trouser pockets most of the time and I do bend over on many occasions and find it OK. Secondly about non user replaceable batteries, I have no problem with them, never had to replace a battery in any of my phones. Batteries will get weaker with time but I still feel that there will never be a need to replace them, plus the phone looks so much better with a unibody rather a phone that has a back cover which comes off so easily.
Z3, Think Twice! I bought a Sony Z3 based on them being a Solid Quality Company & it was time for a change, coming from Android & Samsung I was most impressed with the Look, Feel, Speed, Battery, Photos It took and of course Screen Resolution. Ive owned the phone for 3 mths & want it gone! With a leather case on the PH, my rear glass battery cover smashed from only a small fall, with that same fall a Microchip dislodged of the Mainboard so it now can not Auto Rotate or recognize any of the "Bump" functions. I got that replaced 1 mth later I sat down in a chair "normally & I weigh 78kg" & the Front Screen Cracked and the Phone is unusable! Cannot swipe to get into phone at all! Now I know ur thinking, "Oh bad run of luck" No, the Glass front and backs a Paper Thin just a matter of time before they smash, time & time again. Iv had Samsung for 5yrs dropped them countless times, they have actually fell apart yet never cracked a screen Also not that I needed to, but the Battery cannot be removed or replaced without destroying the rear glass cover, also bit Trivial BUT- the charging port is top LH side, when ur in bed & phone is on charge the cord pulls across the front, Bottom Charging is way less annoying trust me. If you are considering a Z3 buy a big roll of bubble wrap along with the purchase, and "write down" the number to the local phone repair guy in town because you WILL need it.

I'd never ever dip my expensive phone in a flask or something just to test it's water resistant capabilities, now it's dust resistant also so i should bury it in the sand then.
S . SUDHAKAR, 04 Jan 2015Who will buy the xperia and some lumia series which are waste (non user replaceable batteries)?.Who will buy iphone?
I got Xperia Z3,on the very 1st day I dipped it in water flosk & set became dead.
Will Sony pay for the damage????????????
I think not buy sony because the product is not good and the service center is not good, can not fix their own products. and fixed charge repair
i really dont get it! people always complaining about mystical cracks appearing on z2 z3 z3c. one question though, DO YOU GUYS REALLY OWN ANY OF THESE?. I GUESS NOT. YOU DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA!
