Hi People! So this qn goes to those who have used the phone for a while. I'm thinking of getting the Z3 Compact but actually how good/bad is the camera? (Better or equivalent to the new iPhone?) I'll b switching from an Xperia SP to the Z3 compact. I'm weighing my choices at the moment, wondering whether to switch or stick with the SP. I'll miss the SP either ways.
Just purchased this from the Sony Online Store with a 2 year warranty, just in case this phone is as fragile as they say. Still a really good price! Here's my question, I've been reading that certain SD cards don't work very well with this phone. I was considering the SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB. It's expensive, but has a lifetime warranty, and the read/write speeds to keep up with 4k Video. Anyone have any experience with this card in this phone? As well, I was reading that the Sony Xperia Z3(and compact) do not allow the external SD card to be used for certain things... such as installing apps. I am okay with this, as long as it can still be used to store photos, videos, and music. Can anyone confirm? Thank you =)

bc, 07 Dec 2014hi friends plz tell me what is best iphone 6 or xperia z3 compact?z3 compact is the best phone
I bought this phone last month form a local shop, battery gives 2 days on regular stamina mode,i have shifted from I4S to this and thinking abt a long time between Sam Alpha and sony I chose this. I dropped it from a knee height once and the side plastic near power button chipped, its not durable as compare to iphone 4s or anyother iphone as I have dropped my iphone sevral times and(feels like its a military grade fone)so far so long its doing good, but I don't get that feeling of durability or long lasting thing with androids. I might just wait for apple to release a 4 Inch display soon.
This phone is a gaming beast...

Maybe your mobile network signal is weak or maybe you do much more than email and wifi. Your phone may also be defective or you're just trolling.

SONY's: Specs/Performance/Quality grade out performs the Low Grade and Hardly Tech Comp brands by far!!!

Before switching from iPhone 5 to an Android device I'... moreOhh the usual fans from the recipe making company. Try shrinking a processor from a DSLR into a fone. And one more thing, make it water proof and run console graphics games over wifi at the same tym. All should take a moment to appriciate the hardwork and tym spent for Sony to achieve this milestone device instead if bragging over patented product parts which barely ppl know had existed earlier.
Marius Gog, 09 Dec 2014Try LG G2. Battery life is EXCELLENT! I'm more than happy with this device.My colleague also has G2 and he's pretty happy with it as you say. Personally I do not quite like LG's design and since it's also one of the thigns that matter to me while making decision on a phone - I chose Sony. I'll wait for Lollipop for this phone and see if it helps. My colleage's Nexus 4 lasts ca. 30% longer on Lollipop.
If it however will not help for Z3 Compact - I'll switch to HTC One M9 Dual (the current one has this infamous 4 MP camera :/ ) My friend owns One M8 Dual and despite having 2 SIMs active all the time - the phone lasts 2 days without a problem with similar usage conditions as mine.

Battery life of this phone is a joke!
Before switching from iPhone 5 to an Android device I've read many positive opinions that this phone has really impressive battery life. I bought it and after 5 days of usage I may easily say - not true. It lasts more less the same amount of time as my 2 years old iPhone 5 used to live = more less 24 hours. I do have WiFi switched on for more less 14 hours a day + Exchange mail running in 'push' mode and browse the Web on my phone for more less 3 hours a day.
I switched to Android as I was starting to think that Apple only tells bullshit about how efficient their devices are. Sadly it turned out to be truth... Android devices are very power inefficient. So if this phone impresses whoever with it's battery usage - I do not even want to know how it looks like on other droids... :(
