In It 2 Win It, 30 Sep 2014I'm surprised its soo expensive in India, in UK, RRP is £420, but there are some retaile... morehi. no issues with heating up. my battery makes it through 1 day with about 30% left. 7.00am to 11pm. couple hours on net. 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.
[deleted post]I do not know how much that is, but the 550$ price tag for this marvellous phone...is a bargain

Hi does anyone know if you can get chinese language input for the UK xperia z3 compact.
Anonymous, 29 Sep 2014Stop talking about SAR if you don't fully understand what it is all about. Yeah these SAR ratings are very unfortunate but it can also be useful if you want to compare signal strength, lab tests have shown that the higher SAR rating the better signal (naturally, more transmitter power = higher SAR = better signal).
As for those who use SAR ratings for deducting cancer irisk, they are all from India as it is the only country where a scientist has said that cellphone usage causes cancer. That same scientist is being laughed at internationally since all extensive studies has come up short, they cannot find any damages whatsoever even at very high intensity. Indias view on SAR has undoubtedly damaged their international credibility in science and research, the SAR case is just too flawed and so poorly executed.
Rad-K, 29 Sep 2014I came here to say that :)yes it is possible, any andorid will work off line.just research n u will find.
Phaethon, 29 Sep 2014Does anyone know the SAR rating for this phone?Stop talking about SAR if you don't fully understand what it is all about.
finally i got z3 compact in india in my hand...superb handset with 4g lte support with indian network provider..
Bogdanl, 29 Sep 2014What is the point of your comparison? It's like comparing a compact sedan with a pick-up truc... moreThose guys are epic and not in a good way, they been posting the same in Z1 Compact thread since forever also. They are not too bright. About pickup vs sedan, last time i bought a car someone tried to sell me a van ahah, and they even got offended when i pointed out "but this is not a car". As i said, not too bright.
