just got this small powerful device.
what i can say that it's awesome.
- battery life is wonderful.
- Camera images are very natural (a colleague got a note 4, but camera look photoshop and fake)
- didnt tested its waterproof but well when an unfortunate event will happen and the phone got well then will know :P
- performance super
- design cool
con: Just while trying to put in my sim card the corner protector came off -_-' ...powerglued it...

Why don't you believe people having their screen cracked? The screen looks pretty fragile indeed to me...

After 5 days display cracked inside!! I had xperia GO for 2 years and still works. Survived a lot more and far more durable and still works. Xperia GO has much better speakers and LED light, which may be a priority for someone.
The display cracked very quickly. There are visible internal injuries on the screen (smudges). On the phone there is no any small scratches or impact. Does anyone else has a similar bad experience?
I have owned the phone for a couple of weeks and the only problem is it randomly gets hot. This always happens when I have it in my pocket and I'm not even using it. It's strictly in standbye mode. I check to see what apps may be running but there is nothing unusual. I have to cold boot the unit to get it back to normal temp. This is very unsettling for such an expensive phone. I don't seem to be the only one with heat issues on the Sony forum. Very dissapointing Sony
irma86, 22 Dec 2014Thanks. Great review. I also was thinking that this gossip about cracking glass,is non sence. OK folks. Apparently self cracking screens are too difficult for some people to grasp. Fortunately the people at Sony are smarter than you and do understand that improper cutting or install techniques can cause micro fractures where with normal use the screen will appear to crack on its own. Sony is currently fixing my screen free of charge after 30 days of use.
It's a great phone otherwise and can't wait to get it back in action. Also delighted to see that Sony is standing by their product.
Bought it yesterday! the black version! unlocked!
this phone ROCKS!
super fast and practical!
the screen is good and sharp tho it could be bit better! STILL it has a good tasty vivid image.
have had NO issue with it after some use discovering its features!
the battery performance is awesome and if you turn STAMINA mode it becomes EPIC!
camera photo quality is very good!
The 1080 and 4K recording is stunning although i notice the autofocus being a bit slow to work but non the less I LOVE IT!
I am sure that under the 5 inch sized android phones this Xperia Z3Compact is the king!
Sony really putted an effort on this one!

not all people are liars,not all pople are haters.
a week ago i bought z3 compact fro abu dhabi,
I was really impressed with the phone, every thing was very impressive,4 days down the road i have extensive cracks all over my front screen,even worse not responding to touch.apparently replacing the screen is going to cost me 334 dollars.
i did love sony,but am dissapointed.
its glass isnt close to shatter proof.
I've been using this phone for a couple of weeks.
It's a great phone and we've all heard the pros, that's why I bought it and i don't regret it, but when it comes to my personal experience, there are a few cons.
1. compared to my old galaxy s3, daylight vision is not so great even with 100% brightness
2. If you like listening to music with your phone speakers, it sounds awful due to the waterproofing.
3. I never used a phone with on-screen menu buttons before and i don't really like it, the screen is 4.6" but in most apps the menu is not hidden so most of the time it's like i am using a 4.3" screen or something like that.
It also bothers me when i am texting, sometimes instead of touching the text input or space button at the bottom, i touch the home button which minimizes the app.
OMG lots of haters here spreading absolute BS about this phone, u guys should be ashamed of urself, for anyone who might have any doubts at all about either getting this phone or not i tell u what, i have this phone since launch and believe me this is the best phone ever, screen sharpness is exactly like a 1080p phone with a 5in screen size or bigger, camera is one of the bests if not the best, audio quality and loudness is much better than Z2 and more than enough, battery life is phenomenal, and man is this a sexy phone! dont wait, dont hesitate and most importantly dont listen to all of these haters and liers, just go ahead and buy this beauty of a beast.
