Note4 (Exynos version) has very low GPU for graphic and gaming
Moreover, note4 is 49 grams heavier than Z3 compact and it is a large, heavy phone with clumsy style
Low quality Exynos with aluminum body and copy_design from Apple
Laggy touch wiz suck battery:)
Z3 compacis the unbeatable smartphone in current market
Norwegian phone site amobil dot no did battery tests with heavy FHD video H264 and talk time, where video was 75% of the score. Z3C came out only #8, Z3 on 4th place beaten by Note 4 (Exynos), S5 and Mate 7. Even Galaxy Alpha with its tiny battery comfortably beat the Z3C.
Note that webbrowsing and standby times were not measured, especially the webbrowsing battery test would have benefited Z3C.
z3c_user, 30 Oct 2014I previously owned Z1C. On paper very similar phones, but in real life Z3C has remarkably diff... moreThe difference in touch is to be expected, before the Z2 all Xperia phones had horrible touch thanks to the shatterproof sheet on the display. Its also the reason why i didnt buy Z1C, oleophobic coated glass is a must-have, the display sheet was the only thing i hated about my Xperia Z, never again.
Its a shame for sony to have such a poor attention to its customer opinionsand feedbacks.shame fot not to be able to develop a flawless camera software. I own a z1c and its camera hangs a lot not working and needs the phone to be restarted to be able to shot more photos. I really am tired of this ridiculous problem and had plans to replace my z1c with z3c maybe this problem is solved in its successor. Í see that defect still exists in their last flagship and I cant say anything except í feel sorry for you sony that are unable to solve such a problem.
I think Z3 Compact deserves more attention and respect. I'm buying it @ SONY store in NYC this weekend year
Sony should leverage on their expertise in photography. They have the best camera module but the worst software. Also, the screen must be really shatter proof in real life not just on paper.
I previously owned Z1C. On paper very similar phones, but in real life Z3C has remarkably different touch. Much more comfortable in hand, little useful tweaks (like slo-mo video, smart screen rotation etc), battery lasts (in normal use) 3 days, better camera button. Both panels are scracthproof, 1 month used and no single scracth on panels.
Only problem is camera software (same issue with Z1C), crashes too often :P
Best phone I ever had!

That's ... moreI would rather have the plastic bumper and nylon toughened corners of Z3C,,i am getting one next week after wanting smaller smartphone and a powerfull one,,forget iphone that is doomed and if it had no apple logo on back would look like chinese cheap phone.
Phone specifications good,
if Sony add camera with Xenon flash, and S-master amp.(sound)
then result will
Like. No. Other.

Sony phones used to have a shatterproof-film pre-applied, but the dumb hipsters complained about that and so they removed it.
Sony should also make there phones shock resistant-especially the screen. These screen-cracking feedbacks discouraged me to buy this beautiful Z3C. LG G4 is rumoured to utilize a sapphire display-wow.

Anonymous, 25 Oct 2014You are just a troll the xperia z1 compact also have plastic surroundings like the z3 compactWell, I have a Z1 Compact and it has a metal frame. And Z3 Compact's frame is plastic. That's the facts.
darkraver, 27 Oct 2014Actually if Im not mistaken, it has metal body and frame topped with plastic coating as to inc... moreIf that were the case, they wouldn't made the Z3 with metal frame. Z3 Compact's frame is pure plastic, which seems arguably cheap compared to Z3, a problem non-existent between Z2 and Z1 Compact.
My Xperia Z3 Compact (white) has arrived. The back is out of glass and although it's beautiful I can confirm that it feels slippery in the hand and on a polished surface. So I'm extremely careful till I get the case. Oh Sony, I'd preferred the polycarbonate back cover.
Although the size fits perfect in the hand and pocket, I'd still prefer bigger screen size of my Nexus 5.
There are a lot of apps pre-installed on this phone and I find it overwhelming. So I disabled some of them already. Sorry Sony.
With all these discomforts I'll keep Xperia Z3C as backup phone. Having used Galaxy Note 2 before and now I'm using Nexus 5, I'd say, the dream phone for me would be a Nexus 5 with bigger battery capacity.
Wthor, 28 Oct 2014They might have but it has made the touch and feel of the phone very plastic compared to the Z1CZ3c has a plastic frame, no metal whatsoever, that's a fact, it's obvious even with the ultra large coluse-up photos. Z1c's frame is metal which feels far superior compared to the newer model.
