Got a question guys, how much RAM does the Z3 compact use by default, like when you just get it, and you haven't installed your own apps.
Hayalet, 02 Oct 2014I did some research. For now you have to unlock your bootloader to root the phone. And that ma... moreHave you tried e-root?
Anyway buy yourself this phone...
I guess you need more space for games, no other reason...
Luckily for me I'm not that much into games...
But you have an option until proper rooting method comes
In settings, backup your apps with all data and stats to SD card...keep only games you play most on internal...(I have 7 big games on my 16gb Z1C)
Whenever you want to get back games from SD card just reinstall them...

For now you have to unlock your bootloader to root the phone. And that makes you lose features. That's a huge deal breaker for me. I really want to buy this phone :'(
The Z3 Compact seems really nice with ideal form factor for me. Too bad the phone doesn't have larger internal storage options, which is a deal breaker.
I prefer large internal storage to expandable options. Well, It'd be nice if both were present though. I hope..
Hayalet, 01 Oct 2014Yeah root.. But rooting is not as easy as at all phones. My only reservation of buying Sony ph... moreYou should check e-root
Its a one click root app...
You dont loose anything by rooting, only by installing other roms
Then get Titanium backup or sth...
I got this phone last week. I was a bit sceptical becuase I have do not like large phones. This phones is the right size. The battery life is great I get 2 days with good use! It is super fast and I love it!
robertkoa, 01 Oct 2014Yes, I was referring to the Speakerphone of Z3 Compact and was reading the specs from GSM Are... moreGsmarena actually rated the audio output as very good. And I can tell you now that there fairly good. But I think people are not reading the review correctly. Gsmarena said the loudspeaker volume is poor and when you have someone speaking on loud speaker is pathetic
Trust me, z2 is too heavy, i have use that for a month, and i ditch it, everything is good, specs are good, just it is too harsh for one hand operation (even i have a above average size hand).
Trust me, size does matter for your daily life, it's even smaller than iphone 6 almost 1cm shorter, i will buy Z3 compact very soon =)
Hey z3 compact users, is this a worth it buy?? I am confused with z3 compact and z2 which phone do you guys recommend? I always do with my phone is nba 2k14, twitter, facebook and instagram
Hey z3 compact users im planning to buy this and im confused with the z2. All i do with my phone is play nba 2k14, twitter, facebook and instagram.
Z3C, 14 Sep 2014The average volume is your complain, and u shamelessly compare the toyish plasticky S5 mini ju... moreYes, I was referring to the Speakerphone of Z3 Compact and was reading the specs from GSM Arena Review.
Now that I have seen some Youtube Videos of Z3 C and asked a few owners it seems the volume of the speakers is higher than the Review Specs.
Maybe a pre production Z3 C was measured in GSM Review and the actual production Models are better ?
Either way, the Z3 C volume of speakers seems to be very good , so will not be a problem if I buy one.
Your point about Headphones volume is well taken, I think manufacturers keep volume lower to protect Hearing, but volume seems to depend on which headphones, some report loud volume, some say lower.
Speakers on Z3C are said to be about like Z2 was, good volume ,not as full as HTC ONE M 8.
Anonymous, 24 Sep 2014The only problem here is people are hyping some issues to create bad publicity. Obviously LG f... moreI am not a " fan" of any one Brand .
I am a fan of the features I need.
Iphone 6 has a lot of great features and so does
For me the Z3 C wins for being more pocket friendly , IPhone 6 is almost height of S4.
IPhone 6 may have a better Camera for Still Photos and great Auto Modes.
Z3 wins on battery life, twin speakers, and Price.
Personally I like pocket sized Flagships and there's only 2 right now and I was hoping
Alpha would be ( almost , in some ways ).
Was hoping HTC would do one, or LG but no and IF the Xperia Z3 is popular, maybe we will see Alpha Pro or Note 4 Mini, HTC MINI 2 etc.
But I am very happy I can get a Z3 C around $500
which is very close to what I want.
I hope Apple does well and everyone who wants a larger Flagship -you have way more choices.
Small Flagships are very rare, just IPhone 6 and Z3 C that I know of, and both are excellent options IMO.

Wait , it's your opinion of other people's intelligence.
Wait, we are supposed to be talking about Phones and Features here, I forgot.
Maybe it was NOT a good point you brought up ?
Maybe that point should be on some Psychology
or Intelligence Forum, or a Forum where everyone can assert and demonstrate that they are smarter or more correct than everyone else instead of staying on Topic.....
Maybe a Junior High Superiority Forum ?
I don't know, look into it.
I bow to your Superiority...
Might still buy a Z3 C , but I am going back on topic now.
flavefino, 25 Sep 2014the z3 compact is tagged at 349GBP at the momentYes.
But on Clove UK , for example USA buyers pay no VAT.
So is about 289 GBP or about $ 500 including shipping to USA , great price really.
Lowest price on Galaxy S4 unlocked new is about $400 plus shipping....
