after my z1 screen got cracked ( was left on table while i was sleeping ) and sony refused to repair it to me saying warranty not covering such things and wanted to charge me half of phone's price to repair it , i will never do the same thing i did buying sony's phone , how would the high end specs be useful for me if the screen gets auto cracked? no sir ...
All I can see is a one day increase from 15 to 33% interest for this fabulous phone....
Maybe some iphone users actually coming to their senses after than bend test....
RaviSS, 25 Sep 2014Pretty impressed with this phone. I am not very fond of big phones and anything over 4.7"... moreNice comment. If it was released earlier buyers of iphone 6 undoubtedly would've considered this before wasting their hard earned money with a pseudo bendable iphone 6 with a lame battery, but then Sony is busy releasing low end phone which are trumped b cheap China phones. Sony needs to be aggressive in releasing quickly the Z3/Z3 Compact and forget about making low end ones, will help them save costs.
Pretty impressed with this phone. I am not very fond of big phones and anything over 4.7" is too big for me.It is one of the few phones to provide flagship performance in a compact factor.
However the most impressive aspect for me is the BATTERY LIFE. Due to my work, I often have to stay overnight in different places, sometimes rural, and sometimes they don't have regular electricity supply (I am from India). Plus I don't like to carry chargers everywhere around with me.
My average usage is about 1hr of call, 4hrs of browsing/mails and 2hrs of video (generally a movie or a couple of TV episodes while I am travelling). All the phones I have used start running low on the second day. But if I go by the battery test figures, it will be able to last me for over 48 hours with this usage!(This is the first compact phone in the GSMAarena Battery Test Database to do even 40 hours) I could maybe even get a third day if I have to.
Add to that the Dust and Water resistance, which is useful because of the outdoor nature of my work, and I AM SOLD.
It is launching today in India. Can't wait to get it as soon as possible!
CAli, 23 Sep 2014Your comment/question is cracked! What type of foolish Question is that??? SONY=TOP NOTCH It isn't foolish, it was very real and many people were quoted $300 to repair it on the original z1 compact. Maybe overheating issue was the issue, maybe it was something else. This is why I am interested to know if this glass is different from the first phone. I'm mostly sold on the phone but his issue bugged me.

This smarthphone is just one of the many out there that is screaming quality yet is overshadowed by the IPhone.
Wifestealer, 24 Sep 2014i have one question...unlike moto x 2014 IT has google voice like if we lost our phone in a ro... moreYes, just dial the number of the phone then press call.
Wait till it ring. Do moto x have head phone that comes out of the box? does moto x have the good baterry life?
I can stomach in some people want to look for something on a phone, well in fact they already know it doesnt have it. Then rant. They are called trolls.
i have one question...unlike moto x 2014 IT has google voice like if we lost our phone in a room if we say hello google moto x has feature to reply about your command and you will get to know where is your phone. so does xperia z3 compact have too?

In z1 there were many users who complained the glass self cr... moreThey have done a good job improving their screen quality that is why z2 has very minimal screen problem, hopefully z3 series will have even better glass than z2. And being a Sony/Sony Ericsson user for past 10 years, I didn't got any problems in my devices :)

Hopefully xperia z3 series will have better glass but this is true that there will be some issues also as it is impossible to get rid of this problem completely. Each manufacturers have this problem, some has more and some has less, but I agree that Sony has done a great job to fix this issue as I have seen very minimal screen break issue.
hekmat666, 23 Sep 2014I am a heavy user (like millions out there), sir. Iphone6 silly battery cannot be up to my sta... moreWell, let's see Iphone 6 is well......more....metallic...lol.
Really Sony did a great job on Z3 Compact.
Even better if they tweak the Manual Modes on the Camera to maximize but the
powerful speakers, great SOC, nice screen WITHOUT too many pixels to eat battery life, 2600 Mah Battery( very long use per charge), 4.6" screen in a
5.0" tall Device,up to 128 Gig SD Card, waterproof, Flagship Performance , two fun colors, two classy colors, almost everything
I have complained about has been upgraded in this phone.
I will get one.
I don't care about Apple Versus Sony debate but I'll take the Z3 Compact.
