I've already purchased the device and it is the smartest decision I have ever made. I've been using it for 4 days now and I can't see any cons on it. Z3 rules! Pity my Z1 though. Haha.

Gosh, the crap people can write...
Your iphone makes crap photos compared to xperia, try the zoom in and wonder...
One touch of a softbutton in cam settings and xperia makes a 20.7 mpx photo with same colour reproduction and better light exposition than your iphones 8 mpx...
and that is sth those ignorant reviewers dont tell or show you in tests
can anyone help me? my z3 does not shift to landscape mode even if i already turned on the auto rotation. it does not rotate.im using a magnetic charging dock and it does not shift to landscape also. this started a week after i bought my z3. but other than that my phone works perfectly.
Paragb, 17 Nov 2014I never had to deal with any fried mother board,battery or chipset ...on premium smartphones .... moreAre you serious?!? laggy UI? And then a touchwiz comment?! Beautiful....
You must be a sammy fan...
Guess you never heard of problems on samsung phones either ha?:
SD failures, burnt in screen pixels, battery lifetime dropping to half in 6 months time, loudspeaker failure,etc...
I seriously stand behind my glass better than plastic comment, all because of durability improvement...
Either way, if you drop your phone, back crack is not ones biggest problem, but front screen crack is...and it happens to every smartphone out there....
Obviously your on the wrong post!
Since, you completely sound.like.competitor Marketer promoting competitor brands...
Sad and waste.of.time.since.we.real Sony cell phone owners know what's legitimate on user experiences!
So get lost competitors haha

why on screen botton everytime sony??
and why does the phone have lots of lag in the UI. The laggy touchwiz UI is better than the UI of sony.sony learn something from note4....i know it asks for the higher price but did not u alreay reduced the screen size and the ppi for that plus less powerfull chipset hope fully z4 will do the rest.

Plus, Those come Nothing close to Sony Quality!
i did a mistake,i burned my money crap sony,samsung is too good ,i have it but i dont like it,plz,dont buy it
I have been using z3 for at least 2 weeks by now so let me tell my reviews
cons: 1. lacks a lot after every 5 to 6 hrs of use I complained but found no results
2. speakers not up to the mark for a high end phone
3. charging time is too slow had to wait 5 to 6 hrs for full charge
4. whatsapp crushes frequently
5. screen protection not up to mark since I broke my screen with a hight from knee level a had to pay 40k+ for repair
everything works fine excluding the cons.
anyways from my side instead go for z2
I have owned the device, charging the battery is taking around 4 hours using the PC USB cable, from power source taking around 3 hours and a half.
Really long time to recharge the battery which harldy loasts for one day!
For those who're complaining about the back glass getting easily scratched simply put a back glass protector & things will be fine, it's not a great issue.
Paragb, 16 Nov 2014Yes the glass back is the worst design decsion ever it heats & is also more prone to scrat... moreI am not so sure about that....
All phones containing the newest SoC like 801 or 805 heat up to a same level...but having a plastic or wooden back only means all that heat cannot dissapate outwards and instead keeps more of that heat inside and transduces more to front screen panel, so logically more likely to make damage to internals, especially the battery, the screen and main board...
I d rather have my phones back a bit hot, than having fried pixels on my screen, my battery life getting worse, or my main board having fried.... ;-)

The differance was soo immense, especially the display. Upgrading to Z3 will be the best thing you could ever do to yourself.
