I turned of NFC ,and turned off email sync.
and battery is better now ,
In fact , best betterylife up to now ever i seen .
Now I think , battery will last long 15 hours with mixed usage .
But I m not that fully satisfied .
Camera is 21mp , its good , but still not as expected .
But best in low light , compared to other phones.
Phone is not smooth as it should be .
slight lag when going from any app to lets say, the home screen? It happens frequently with me, in fact, when going to the home screen sometimes the wallpaper is not even there, it takes about an additional second for it to appear.
I think I made a mistake to buy Z3 ,
But battery life is very impressive and better than all phones .
It prevents me to sell Z3 .
Display quality of Z3 is average
Sony ui is not good , little Jerky .
Asphalt8 is running not that smooth as my friend's iphn 5s .
If u are from India , there is not much difference between Z3 and iphn 6
Only 4,000 INR (60$ only )
Also HTC M8 is good option at 40,000 , But camera of M8 is worst
also good option is Galaxy Alpha
My friend just bought it , and seriously
Its superb phone compared to my Z3 , but battery is average and last long only 9 hours for mixed use.
I purchased my Z3 a few weeks ago. I noticed the camera images just didn't seem to render the correct color in various conditions. The issue, which I can confirm and have, is a pink spot in the photos.
I took the phone to the shop; their response: "Yes, we see it. Send it to Sony." GREAT!
Here is the problem as I see it: The pink/red issue is not always visible. So sending it in for service may result in a classic: "We checked it and didn't see it." Or, "Never heard of this before."
I now cannot recommend this phone! Do not buy!
Krishnaik, 04 Nov 2014Can anyone let me know whether Xperia Z3 is scratch proof? Do i need to apply screen protector... moreI have the D6603 Xperia Z3.
There is no protection, aside for the 'Dragon Glass.' This glass is easily scratched!
you guys are so annoying. i dont even know why you guys keep debating about which phone is better. it's usual preference.im using xperia z3 and it's really performed well. no bug or freeze or lag noticed from the first time i bought this phone. running smooth as butter and fast. i don't say that this phone is better than iphone. coz it's a comparable phone to iphone and its way cheaper in my country ( z3 costs 750$ and iphone 6 costs 1100$). if the iphone costs the same with z3 , i probably will buy the iphone 6 because i like the way apple keep the iphone simple but really usefull. i never see a phone as fluent as iphone and i think that's the reason why a lot of people buy an iphone. so it's all about preference. if you like costumizeable phone you must choose android. if you like simple and fluent phone you gotta choose iphone. please don't give such a useless argument if you just compare the specs ,it jut on paper. in real life will be just different. GROW UP!!!
I bought the Z3 Dual two days ago (KSA,)
to replace my iphone 5, i was very reluctant to jump ship from iOS to Android. but Xperia Z3 is the only phone with build quality to match Apple's.
The phone is sexy to hold, camera and its short cuts are AMAZING and not any gimmiks, it does what it is asked to do, the 20megpixls give detailed images.
More over the biggest plus is its PHENOMINAL battery, and the stamina mode really is good , i come to bed at the end of the day with 20% battery and i'm a heavy user...
I am enjoying Andriod and love it that you can tweek everthing , however I miss alot of applications (games) that are not yet available on android, Ios is way ahead in apps. especially waiting for "world of tanks blitz game"
I give this phone a 10 out of 10 and reminds of how revolutionary iphone 4 was
Z3 Xperia, 04 Nov 2014Hii guys , I got my Z3 yesterday .
Sony guys said me , this phone has 2 day battery life .
... moreHeating issue is a normal issue.Now a days. Every phone had this problem. While playing a real racing games like asphalt,dead trigger, mortal combat..
And the Sony Xperia z3 body is a glass made only ( front & back)..while heating time u feel more warmth on the back panel...casual one...
You don't have to panic for that...
And the battery depends on your usage..
Playing like HD games as I mentioned above... Battery drains faster...
And activate stamina mode & ultra stamina mode to improve your battery endurance... Go to settings >power management >stamina mode& ultra stamina mode...
I hope this thing helpful for you
Can anyone let me know whether Xperia Z3 is scratch proof? Do i need to apply screen protector on it??
Thanks for the help in advance.

That feature is just extra on ps4 and xbox, not at all that responsive as wii...preffer a controller in the hand too, against catching flies on kinect....
Well, each to its own...

Google it bro....
Tons of videos out already
Playing PS4 games on yojr mobile is....a value feature indeed
On home wifi working flawlessly, if connected 100 miles away has some glitches, depends on wifi quality...
But a feature that Lumias, samsungs, iphones and all others are lacking...
darkraver, 03 Nov 2014PS4 remote play is available
Playing your ps4 games no matter where you are with xperia is a ... morePlease get real, noone has tested the feature yet and it probably doesnt work well as usual with Sony as of lately. Even before making the feature available Sony has been trying to cover their bases by recommending wired connections for the PS4 and use only on the same WIFI network. This "feature" is going to get a lot of hate for being useless, just wait and see,. Lucky i am an Xbox guy anyway.
Additional comment for the non-fanboys: Everyone who has played for example car racing games, like Sony is pretending will work on PS4 Remote play on Xperia Z3, know how a few milliseconds more or less will make the difference between totaling and victory, in NFS games on PC as you advance to higher levels with faster cars with great handling you can barely drive at all if your FPS keep falling below 50, in fact every millisecond counts so even a 60Hz LCD monitor is a big disadvantage, and then Sony want us to think we can play a racing game over a wifi network? LOL no way.
If Sony was so great with software then why does PS4 require PS Move to play motion sensing games? Even the old Xbox 360 with the old type kinect can do great without, why not PS4? The truth is that Sony has fallen so far behind that they have no way of catching up to the competition on the software side, those who want remote play better get an Xbox One and wait for Microsofts take on the matter, im sure they will find a way around latencies, if Kinect vs PS Camera/PS Move is an indication it will be 100 times better. Ok ok i know, Kinect is more than 100 times better than PS Camera/Move but im trying to be nice to Sony here.

Z2 has ip58 certified and Z3 has ip68 certified, which one is capable of strong for water resistant?
I dont recommed.
Im an apple user since long time and the following are my issues with Z3:
1-In my first day to use it, when somebody bodyvwas calling, the answer screen was not appearing. So i hear the ring but cant answe.
2- you dont hear sharp voices of people calking you.
3-You can not control with one hand.
Mobile is too expensive and worth the money.
For iPhone users: dont switch...
