I have been using this phone for 1 year now and I must say that this is the best smart phone I have ever had. I like small phones for convenience in carrying. Sony has put the best features in a small size - bright display, excellent battery life, powerful camera, no issues with software - with continuous updation, very attractive double glass casing and a dedicated camera click button. This phone will definitely go in the list of top 5 small screen cameras available in market today.
Dean F, 30 Aug 2016My screen stopped working after 1 year. Unable to pull down top notification bar. It's happen... moreIt you can't pull down the notification, maybe you can try installing zen ui launcher from asus. I use lenovo phab and having hard time pulling the notification bar because it's too high. I tried installing zen ui launcher. With it, you can pull down the notification bar by swiping down anywhere in the homescreen. Once installed, long tap homescreen, choose preference, tap homescreen then choose swipe down gesture. Hope this helps.

Muahmmed Safad, 01 Sep 2016My screen stopped working after 1 year. Unable to pull down top notification bar. Any solution?You need to change the touchscreen. It's a hardware problem and Sony isn't bothered. See the forums! After changing touchscreen, you'll have issues with proximity sensor :) .Will never buy a Sony..
After updating to the latest firmware and my device running build number 23.5.A.1.291, my phone doesn't recognise headphones anymore and thus can't use the radio or listen to music on with any pair of headphones. Any solutions?
GREAT phone... Of course both sides are glass so put a protector on it. DevilCase I have been using for 2 years and is great. Had one protector finally shatter but phone was intact.
After a month of use and without any fall, its back cover glass broke, when it was standing on a desk. I was shocked, that it is impossible. I will never buy phone like this.
I'm using my second z3c for just over 4 months after cracking my last one after 1 year. I keep it in a case so it's so far been safe from any damage.
The latest system update seems to have further improved the battery life and I'm really happy with it. I love this phone so much that only thing I hope is not to crack the phone again. Otherwise it has all I need. Size, weight are unbeatable amongst all the recent Sony minis and speed and camera are more than good enough for me. I don't care if there's no more android upgrade.
The back is made of glass. It breaks. Really easily. Just a wee drop.
You don't need glass that you can't even see through on the BACK of your phone.
I want a polycarbonate phone. That's plastic. It doesn't break.

AnonD-122669, 29 Aug 2016Yup google & Qualcomm have shown us the middle finger.The thing is Sony tried to give us and I appreciate that. It would be really cool if they would update the UI
Same problem with my phone. The touch sensitivity lost on top, bottom and one vertical band. Sony Service center estimated parts-replacement worth of 135$ (9000INR)
I am getting the whole front panel black color, Display and touch screen replaced for 75$ (5000 INR) @ Bangalore, India
Checked online it is available for same cost.
btw, the phone is upgradeable to 6.0.1. This page says only 6.0. if somebody knows how to update the data, please do it.
