Rather disappointed with this phones design, the plastic feel around the edges. I have the Z1 Compact which has an metal frame around the phone. That gives it a very quality steady feel. But this new Z3 Compact the metal has been replaced by plastic and it feels awful.
Sony go back to the Z1C design with the metal around it for the Z4C this is not good enough on a £400 phone. Even the Xperia M2 feels better quality..
My sister is using this fone for almost one month trust me this us the best fone till date. Its 2700 battery is more powerful than it sounds. My god she has been using it for hours widot enabling stamina mood guess wat battery is still more than 60% wth! Just loved the new UI. Damn i hope z3 is better than this compact version coz i need a bigger screen. Ppl if u want everthng in a smaller n more handy device thn this is it the sony xperia z3 compact.
It is normal that the phone reboots when you removed the sim. You may try it on other sony android phones.

Brynn, 26 Oct 2014I have 5s and have been on GSMArena charts comparing its cam with Z3C and most of time Z3C is ... moreyes it have better detail thant iphone (i compared with a iphone friend) but the color in iphone are reproduccion (mb cuz they are more intentionaly vivid and not like xperia z3c want to look like DSLR) i change my iphone 5c to this cuz i really hates ios8... its like breaks my phone... i never was a iphone or android "fan" just wana a phone with good specs.. (not im paper just real world. good performance, batery, camera, screenn)
I have 5s and have been on GSMArena charts comparing its cam with Z3C and most of time Z3C is better using 8MP mode.Although don't own Sony just yet it seems fine to me.Off now to do video comparisons.Up to now i think this should get handset of the year,,all the power in a proper smartphone size package..Also it has lanyard and notification LED and waterproof and proper shutter button and superb battery life over most other smartphones..
OK Lets be picky and say it has no xenon flash .
Brynn, 24 Oct 2014Well i have read and read and ordered one yesterday.Had to get black all others out of stock,,... morethe MP on a camera its not important i recomend u use superior auto mode (8mp) have nice post procesing and nice lvl of details (better than iphone 6). yes it have notification led. and the size its perfect al least for me.
robertkoa, 23 Oct 2014Regarding your Z3 Compact- Some versions and Reviews report muffled audio on calls on phone... morethe front speaker not sound to loud remenber its a water prof phone.. IP68.. the speakers are sealed.
Dn nS, 25 Oct 2014you probably bended the iphone xD
