Hi, guys, pls what's the difference b/n Xperia z3 and z3 compact. which one is best?????
Anomynous, 10 Oct 2014Z1c was and is pure garbage, very bad touch experience and scratches like crazy thanks to the ... moreIt is so DISAPPOINTING to see some reviews about Z3C screen weakness. SONY, must have been playing with this gorgeous device that they're not treating it really like a flagship. Why didn't they use Gorilla Glass3, instead of some useless shatterproof screen. I was really excited to buy this phone but after seeing its weaknesses I'll just wait for the Z4 Compact. Also, the 20.7MP camera is inferior compared to Iphone6/6+, it is very DISAPPOINTING since Sony supplies most of the camera modules to other companies, yet their own are not on par with the competition.
Anomynous, 10 Oct 2014Z1c was and is pure garbage, very bad touch experience and scratches like crazy thanks to the ... moreoh please... tell me what kind of bloatware you are talking about, and don't spare details! :D There is not so many apps that could be named as bloat... Half of them could be deleted with easy. For example every Samsung flagship has 3 or 4 times more bloat apps (+just a few of them could be removed...). Sony has just a basic stuff + few extra SONY exclusive applications
SonyFan, 10 Oct 2014How about heating problem?I did not faced that issue so far. Only once, maybe. When i got the device - plugged it to charge but couldn't just leave it be. I was very excited with may new phone, so during charging I've kept using it. After downloading and surfing net for ~30min phone's back got a little warm. But nothing similar to be extremely hot
SonyFan, 10 Oct 2014But there are so many people who complains about it. Is the front glass panel still scratch ea... moreZ1c was and is pure garbage, very bad touch experience and scratches like crazy thanks to the shatterproof sheet on the display. Z3c doesnt have this sheet so it should be ok. But beware of Sonys bloatware, some people are leaving Xperia because of Sonys new direction, the cleanliness and freedom to chose that Sony Ericsson valued is gone, Sony will force you to use their bloat.
So, iPhone 5s is a good alternative for a compact phone, almost no software garbage and its a bit cheap now. Apple did force their users to have horrifying music on their devices with the free U2 album but they are allowing people to delete it from their iTunes now. Its still gross though, U2 of all things, lots of people rather have Ebola, and it is a concern if Apple will do something as stupid as that again. And by the way, Z3c isnt coming to Ph yet, only the oversized Z3 at first, they are trying to get rid of the horrible Z1c stock first before launching Z3c.
It could have a better secondary camera - 20MP, just like HTC did.
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2014I think much better if "Sony Xperia Z3 Compact" contained this specs: 1.Display.-... moreIn the real world, what would you do with that specs that you can't do with the actual phone?
BullCat, 10 Oct 2014How would you know if your Z3 Compact is D5803 or D5833?Go to android definitions -> about the smartphone (I don't know the exact words in english)
I just bought the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact (Model D5803) and I only have to say good things about it.
I saw some comments about the screen being only 720p and 319ppi but to me this image quality is awesome.
There is no lag, it is very fast and the battery is really good.
My only concern was the screen not being gorilla glass, but we cant have all.
SonyFan, 10 Oct 2014How about heating problem?You can check on the review from NoteBookCheck.net, though the review is written in German, but if you scroll down to the temperature section, you can see the phone maximum heat that reached under their test is 39.9 Celsius, which is not bad (not using 4K recording in their test though). You can read more detail if you use Google Translate on it.
But there are so many people who complains about it. Is the front glass panel still scratch easily? Thats the main reason why I didn't buy the Z1C. I went to there display store and the sample Z1C had so much scratch on it.
SonyFan, 10 Oct 2014I have read in many blogs and user reviews that the screen cracks all by itself. To those who ... moreI currently own this phone for two weeks now. I could say, that this issue was made out of some ppl, who dislikes sony flagships and is envy of it's popularity. Z3C is top quality device. Dropped once, not even a scratch. I just don't like the U.Stamina mode. it's a bit clumsy.. But even without using it phone last 2/6 days (heavy/easy usage) :]
I have read in many blogs and user reviews that the screen cracks all by itself. To those who own this beast, is there any truth to it? I really wanted to buy this phone but I'm still waiting for comments about this issue. Probably gonna wait at least three months just to be sure. Don't want to spend a fortune and find out later that my screen cracked by itself.

But people are reporting back glass scratches easily.
Do you guys think ... moreI had a scratchguard installed on day one just outside the shop where I purchased the Z3C. Yes, there are cutouts for the speakers (obviously), for the front camera and the ambient light sensor.
The back of the phone has not gotten scratched till now (thankfully) since I put it in my jeans pocket and don't mix it with keys or anything else. It has fallen a few times from about 3-4 feet in my house and nothing has happened so far. i have ordered a case from Amazon.in but it is yet to arrive.
I am also using a magnetic charging cable (from ebay.in) so that I do not have to keep opening the flap to charge it. The flap seems flimsy and if it breaks, I wouldn't know where to find one since the Sony Center shops here are utterly useless - they didn't have a case nor a magnetic charging cable - they just looked at me as if I was asking them for some alien meteorite.
swapnil, 09 Oct 2014im planning to buy this phone for my sister .just want to knw if in power saving mode we can ... moreYes, we can use it when the phone is on. You can choose which apps you want to keep running even in power saving mode, but then, that defeats the whole purpose of the power saving mode :) But that being said, I also keep my whatsapp running even in stamina mode
