Best Android phone, but still not perfect.
Downsides - glass on back is fragile, I've heard it is supposed to have very tough glass front and back. That's a lie. Rear glass is not high quality like the front screen. Due to waterproof and heat generated by the powerful specs, the phone is prone to inner pressure and that makes the glass much more fragile than even other phones with glass on the back like iPhone 4. Get a good quality case and be careful with this phone.
Also, I find it less comfortable than I expected. Its smaller, yeah, but not compact. It's square, kind of heavy.. doesn't quite "become a part of your hand".
Other than that its perfect. Love the phone.
I own 1 , and its amazing...
Quality? N0thing c0mpares!
Xperia Z3 Compact is The best 4" android smartphone in the universe
Very well done Sony

I would recommend gamextreme but i dont know if your the area in eastwood libis.. or shop around coz some online seller even meet up they unbox it infront of the buyer.
as far as i know their items are not sealed. before meet ups, they open up and unseal the box checking if the device itself works fine. i've read some negative feedback. some users encountered some probs with the device. they asked and messaged kimstore but no one respond. Kimstore's customer service is kinda poor after you receive the device. im still doubting on Kimstore.
AnonD-915, 12 Dec 2014That's good news! I'll buy this z3c/z1/zc or z2 maybe at Intogadgets, hotstopmobiles or Kimstore. Kimstore has a vey good feedback, but i dont know if they have physical store.. they do meet ups if you want to buy phone from them. Just make sure that its still sealed. They should unbox it infront of you... dont accept it if its already open..

[deleted post]This phone doesn't have to be number 1 on daily interest. It is a very good phone, it has features like play station remote play, backlight control, smart call handling, 2 day battery life, 20.7 megapixel camera and a 2.5ghz snapdragon 805. You're such a troller and insulting other people is just beyond childish.
Anonymous, 11 Dec 2014Do these online shops offer warranty?It doesn't come with SONY Warranty but they have 7 day replacement and 1 year SHOP warranty included. I bought mine in GameXtreme, they have physical store in Eastwood, I'm not sure though if they have other branches. Choose an online seller with physical store.
I bought my Z3 in GameXtreme more than a month now and so far I'm not having any problem, I already used it under water in a pool and it's still working great. I bought dock charger to avoid opening the charger flap though.

They sell international version.. the only downside is it doesn't have warranty that why they sell it in a lower price.. its thesame when you buy for example in amazon in the us.. when I bought mine i went to sony shop in sm and have it checked, they said its original..
Looks nice and cute, but the glass finish of the phone seems extremely fragile. Just one small fall and the glass will be shattered. Plastic back of my Samsung is indestructible...Anyway i will probably buy it as my first Sony. How is loudness of the speakers compared to Samsung S5 or Alpha ?
