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.

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....

My only reservation of buying Sony phones is the process of root. I don't like too complicated processes. And also losing features when rooted. That's a retarded thing. Void warranty is somewhat gotton used to but other things makes me think twice. Otherwise i so wanna but this phone. I will wait and observe the developing of this phone and then i will decide to but or not.

Bluetooth playing music for an hour. few emails , text and calls. .. im also looking about the phone and apps quite a bit as its new, ( as you do). I very surprised at how long its holding out . its as good as my Lumia 1520 , maybe better by a shade
I'm surprised its soo expensive in India, in UK, RRP is £420, but there are some retailers (e.g. Handtec, Mobicity) that are selling this sim free for £350 (approx. 35,000 INR).
Can someone that has the Z3C provide some feedback on the battery and provide any other issues/concerns noted so far (e.g. whether it heats up etc).
Root your phone, and buy Titanium Backup Pro, with that you can remove even system apps, and move whatever app you want to the sd card.

Doesn't the phone have dragontrail instead of gorilla glass... Or is it reserved for only Its big brothers... Z3, Z2, Z1 etc... And isn't dragontrail stronger and more scratch resistant than gorilla glass..? As i saw in a YouTube video once.... Anyway Its a question... Not a statement... I'm asking as i don't know
Got myself a z3 compact and its a very all round gadget , previously i had a z1 compact and it is a very good device , though its speaker placement and volume levels were not good. its good to see sony fixed all those problems and built this great mobile. i dont know why gsmarena said its volume levels are average because my sony mdr xb70 sounded louder than most phones out there . using headphone profiles they were so loud that they were shaking and slightly slipping from my ears. thats super loud , the ui is also not changed much. bigger icons and new themes only. sadly o didn't got noise cancellation headphones bundled. and will test the new high iso feature later . price 41300 inr .
Pros - bigger screen in z1 compact size
2- better ip certification
3- walkman series level sound quality (loud , very loud )
4- light weight
5- glass back panel
Cons - no gorilla glass
2- noise cancellation earphone not bundled in india
3- no freebies , flipcover etc .( a few premium app like office and avg antivirus pro is free)
I have XSP and want to have a newer, more powerful phone with the same size, not bigger. I guess this is the phone for me. Better battery, better RAM, better camera and better chipset, with lighter body.
Can't wait to have it. It's a shame it's not available in our region yet.
