on Z2 camera stopped functioning after being in water.
sony refused on warranty.
I think the water resistant issue is not relevant until it is IPX8.
PS4 remote play is available
Playing your ps4 games no matter where you are with xperia is a charm indeed :-)
On its way for z2 too ;-)
Anomynous, 03 Nov 2014T3 has a terrible resolution for its size, fitting content is not about size but about resolut... moreOh really! so what does that make me with the 6.4" Sony Z Ultra. Please think next time before you make silly comments. Try the Z Ultra and then tell me what the larger phablets are actually for rather than buying these boring 5" phones, the Z1, Z2 and Z3 look awful because they are so small and have bezels the same size as those on the Z Ultra. The Z Ultra rules because it is the perfect size with perfect bezels. Think next time before you make any comments.

I used Note 2 for many months, it was just bad display wise, i want a ~4.7 inch 1080p phone for optimal experience, 5 inch 1080p is acceptable but anything bigger is for the farsighted who need to hold the phone at arms length to see the display clearly. BlackBerry Z10 has higher resolution (768p) than Note 2 at only 4.2 inch display and the Z10 is more than big enough for its 768p, after all its still only 355 PPI.
Everything is good except a little bit small, if come with 5.3 inches is precise, even just 0.1 inches. I compare this phone with Sony T3, I found that 5.3 inches screen is just nice. Just hope the upcoming Z4 would be considering this size.

I would like to ask a question that is really important for me. Does ... moreI own a Z3.
The camera on my Z3 has had no issues (I have beenusing this phone for over a month now).
Lu Che Ver, 01 Nov 2014Oh my ive read in a Sony Support. Forum.. A few unlucky buyers had defective units with the ... moreI find very very hard to believe that. My own Z3 is perfect. In every respect. The differences in quality between this phone and other brands on the market are visible from the first glance. I wouldn't trade this phone for anything else, even if I had to pay a third of the price. It is definitely (and I know what I'm saying here) the best phone on the market right now.
I got my T-Mobile Z3 on Monday (pre-ordered). Previously, I had a Samsung Galaxy S III. Never had any issues with it. The Z3 is a nicely designed phone. The camera takes great pics. The installed software is relatively free of manufacturer clutter (unlike Samsung which has all kinds of crap you can't remove). The battery is amazing, easily able to last 2 days. On the negative side, the phone seems quite heavy even though it is not much different than other phones. Also, the square edges are somewhat annoying.
Unfortunately, I had many issues. I had a problem where I could not make phone calls (happened twice in 3 days). Power cycling seemed to fix this, Then, on the 3rd day I had the phone, I got the gray screen of death. Basically, I could see that some backlighting of the screen was occurring, but could not see anything on the screen. I tried hard resets to no avail. After researching this issue, it seems that this is a known issue for previous Xperia phones (without a known solution).
I decided to return the phone and will go with either an iPhone 6 or one of Samsung's newer phones. I just don't trust a Sony phone after this experience.
Oh my ive read in a Sony Support. Forum..
A few unlucky buyers had defective units with the following issues below, Ill do my own quality check before I buy mine.
1. Failed Water Proofing - I will have my unit tested in the store if permitted
2. Pink spot in pictures - No idea yet if this is software or hardware related
3. Battery issues - I will test this as soon as i buy a Z3 by fully charging it then see how it goes. Then another test - simulate the one that they publsh in the sony z3 official website
One reason why people choose Sony is the quality assurance
I guess with the rapid change of technology and demand for quicker manufacturing
Quality is being sacrificed as a few defective units leak out..thats the risk consumers have to take as this applies to almost any brand.

It charges much faster on airplane mode, with its original charger, and on quality electricity source
I noticed difference charging at my home and my work, airplane mode on or off, old charger instead original phone charger
My 2400 battery charges at best in 1 hour....up to worst 3 hours using old charger at work and no airplane mode on
Where do i find forums about the Xperia Z3, especially about user experience, bugs encountered?
Ive been reading a lot of good feedbacks here...Now I want to see the negative points of the phone..
This will help me decide if I should buy the Z3 or maybe wait for the Z4( If my dying phone survives until Z4 is released) :)
Vibhas, 01 Nov 2014Nope it takes an hour and a half or to the max 2 hrs for a complete charge.Really from 0-100%?? I've Z2 & it takes over 3 hours to get fully charged even from 15% to 100%. If you're right then it's a good thing with Z3,may be i can move to Z3.
