my Xperia Z3 Compact works as well as new since I changed the battery. It is not that difficult and you only pay 5Â€ for it. Now it gets up to 2 days again.
I still use this because I never need my phone other than for calls and texts. The battery barely lasts 6 hours in normal use and it gets worringly hot extremely quick. But I turned on Stamina mode permanently and now it can last for 2 days straight. It's hanging in there!
Used the phone from 2015 to 2017. It worked well for the first year until the screen started to peel off and phone overheated most of the times. It wasn't a bad phone though and enjoyed it a lot until those setbacks kicked in.
you are right the problem begin until i replaced the screen now the screen coming out from frame

possibly because you bought a used one or a refurbished one that has replaced screen, you can tell a replaced screen by seeing the screen thoroughly you can see like squarish pattern on the screen, you have to look really close when the screen is turned off and use reflection to see it more clearly.
lukmansy16, 21 Jan 2020How About Battery LifeIt has a decent battery life because of the small screen and low screen resolution. At the beginning it was easily able to do 1 to 1.5 day. But be aware of the screen, the glue that they use to attach it with was really weak, so me screen started peeling off after I accidentally dropped it from a 25-30 cm height(which is laughable). Also, headphone jack died after 5-10 times I plugged in my earphones. And when screen peels off it messes up with a proximity sensor, so screen might go black automatically if you make phone calls, because system thinks your face is close to the proximity sensor. I loved the form factor and its battery life, but build quality is really really poor. So food for thoughts...
I had this phone for 2.5 years. My experience: the front screen broke twice which never happened with 3 iPhones I have had. The replacement dual-side tape available on the market is poor quality: it keeps un-sticking on both front and back which was annoying so I did it again- with a 2nd set of tapes and it was un-sticking again so I set it on a super-glue that made the phone not serviceble from that point on. The battery life is great. No signs of degradation. Reception is good/no issues. Built-in radio was a nice. Price was reasonable- noticebly less pricy than iPhones. Blutooth is not great- it kept disconnecting from my home phone headset system all the time/not reconnecting. Neither of the iPhones had that problem.
Resume: will not buy this model again for sure. Considering my choice on another Xperia - not sure because of the experience of the fragile front screen on this model.
Im personally a fan for small size powerfull phones and by far this is the best ive come across,i used to own this phone and I loved it...can you please upgrade it to double sim and increase the selfie megapixel,size is perfect...Thank you

Great phone, even in 2019. Until the touch dies. I used a 3rd party application (pill). Unfortunately recently I restored the phone to factory settings, and I can't skip the welcome screen. Dead.
Now it has hit me. The Touchscreen dies after three and a half years. Display still looks fine but the touch-digitizer is giving up. It started a few weeks ago at the bottom and the top, so I helped myself with third party apps for the notification- and the navigation bar.
But now there are two stripes across the keyboard, makes it nearly impossible to type text and renders the device useless.
I really loved this phone, the compact size, the fluid performance and the long battery endurance.
I'm so sad now.
Hey guys..i have bought this phone about 3 months ago..a week ago,this phone can't get charged properly..when it dies,i charge and the phone won't turn on..what should i do?
NoLauncherPls, 08 Nov 2018I find this nonsense of having a 'launcher' forced upon users to be insufferably dictatorial -... moreAll Android phones have a launcher. Apple has a launcher, even if they don't call it that. It's like the old Windows Start button. All you have to do is long press the icons you don't want and delete them from the main screen. And when you open the Apps Drawer, long press the apps you most often use, and drag it to the main screen. Easy as pie.
Instead of spending time complaining about it, better you invest that time on learning the OS.

It has Xperifirm built-in, so you can download the latest ROM for your device direct from Sony, then use Flashtool to "update" your phone.

I flash mine with Android 6.0.1 for D5803 and it is working great. But, I loose the NFC. Try to look for official stock rom. Google will help you to find one.
