Cedrickk, 27 Nov 2014im from philippines and i want to buy a phone and choosing between z, z1, z1c. z has outdated ... moreIt will not drop anytime soon. And Z is a better phone than z1, by far, z1 is the poorest crap ever to come out, big heavy ugly with 4 hours battery life. If you think Z is outdated you will be surprised if using one, its a very fast and smooth phone. Somewhat bad battery life is the drawback but all in all the best phone at its price.
Z3c, a very overpriced midrange phone, not worth it.
Cedrickk, 27 Nov 2014im from philippines and i want to buy a phone and choosing between z, z1, z1c. z has outdated ... moreIt may take 6 months to drop price
I'll still suggest z1c over z3c
u won't feel any difference in performance
except 0.3 inch more screen front speaker
im from philippines and i want to buy a phone and choosing between z, z1, z1c. z has outdated specs for me. z1 has powerful specs and very fashionable with its glass back but i find it too bulky/big. z1c has a powerful specs too and better battery life due to the screen res which is 720p among the rest. but i since i'm currently owning a galaxy s duos phone with 4" which sucks and lags a lot, i dont think i'll be satisfied if i get a z1c which is just 0.3inch bigger screen than galaxy s duos. Then I went to the store and held the Xperia Z3 Compact. After holding it, it felt really amazing with just a perfect screen size and trendy design. but when i checked the price, it was just very expensive! here in Philippines, Z 16,900 pesos. Z1 20,900, Z1C 19,900, Z3C 25,990. I wonder, what month would the price of the z3c drop?
i have a z3 compact but its front camera is 2mp only i thought it was 2.2mp.. Does anyone have this kind of problem?

Do we have to hold the phone in a certain angle to make the proximity sensor to work during calls?
Hello all, I recently upgraded to this phone from a phone of about 7 years ago so still in awe of the new advances with apps and specs of this. Just a couple of questions.
What is the ideal sd card used for this. Keep on reading 64gb for optimal speed but then going for 32 or 128 gb for flap something. Not sure about this.
What type of protections did you guys go for?
Last one is how to turn off the notification sound when reading new messages from default messaging app.

Get a Ziploc snack bag or equivalent. Put phone in and stay in the water all you want with phone in your pocket! Get the external charging cable too. Cheap on ebay and do not have to keep removing the usb cover
Ram, 23 Nov 2014Bought new Xperia Z3C. It has problem in sim card cover flap. Was loose and popping out itself... moreI don't know if you got a reply already or not, but for the seals pop out I found out that if you degrease them very well they will stay in for days instead of popping out every time in you pocket. But when I go in water I use clear tape to secure them properly... Sony has not made a good enough job with this seal design. Its quiet flimsy.
Z4C, 21 Nov 2014Just an opinion, I believe the reason why for this FRAGILE screen is due to increased IP ratin... moreMaybe but it's fairly certain that the Glass on the
BACK is not,GG3 or Dragontrail, it's just ,,,,,glass.
Sony in.the FUTURE needs to use,GG4 on the Front and flexible glass on the back -NOT,a flexible back , just glass that is very flexible and thus , nearly shatterproof.
OR GG4, on both sides.
OR a ceramic baked glazed metal back.
Sony never failed my expectations. very nice handset, smooth, fast, good battery life, just what i wanted! you should buy it. z3 compact. i have the white one.
Cai Moules, 23 Nov 2014Anyone know when Android L is released for Sony devices? Thanksearly 2015
Ram, 23 Nov 2014Bought new Xperia Z3C. It has problem in sim card cover flap. Was loose and popping out itself... moreI've had the same issue as you, but after i bent a bit the flap cover's stick(tiny plastic stick that holds the flap cover between the port's hole and the flap cover), the flap cover was fixed.. you need to check if the stick aren't straight, make it straight, it worked for me.
