I m thinking to repair the software via pc companion i hope tht wil fix the camera or else use my warranty to make a miracle. Anyone else having this issue?
Its been a grt smartphone until i updated to marshmallow. I was in kitkat for a realy long time dint update to 5.0 coz of the bad review i saw in google. And as marshmallow had a bad version goin on which had good reviews i tght of updating via pc companion without any hesitation bt as i updated everything i fyn except the most important thing the camera its like the same thing that happnd with xperia m2 in 5.0. Less detail,more Noise and high exposure. I hate the camera so much nw whatever sony does their updates r nt gud even after testing beta l is fyn i jst want the camera to b like bfr
I have submerged this smartphone underwater at least 3 to 4 ft and for more than 30 minutes while swimming in the swimming pool. It died on me. But after opening all the flaps and ive submerged it on rice for a couple of days and charged it for a day it came back to life. It also have experienced falling from the top of a bunk bed twice. Only complaints? Yes, the touchscreen on the middle part of my screen due to my wrongdoings :P
Other than that, hats off to the hardware, Sony.
~PS if you have the option, if you have the option, never update your version beyond 4.4.4
(wish I can buy a brand new unit of this one, and may it give me another chance)
Giammi, 25 May 2016What is The best firmware To have a longer battery?I was looking for it for a long time and recently I flashed 23.5.A.0.575 Customized NCB via Flashtool. I am in college and use it often, in the morning it is at 90-100% and when I go to sleep it is at around 30-50%.
This is my recommendation.
Updated to 6.01 everything is OK except the badges don't work on viber installation watchapp any suggestions ;
I am able to edit music info perfectly even after update. In fact now picture gets saved for only 1 song & not whole playlist.
Z3Compact  from India here.
My Z3 compact just died a month after marshmallow update. This seems to be a problem with most Sony phones. It was a good phone but after my experience i would not recommend it to anyone
alexos, 20 May 2016I updated it by myself, coudln˙t wait for the otain Croatia cause battery drain was ... moreI couldnt wait either, Im from Cro too, contact me if You want solution, I had the exact same problem, but have fixed it.
When i download and install android 6.0.1 on z3 compact i can't change my information music. There is no button for that. In the album all my songs have same artist and same album name. On android 5 i was able to do that. Does anyone know how to fix that?
WHY I can't change my music information on Android 6.0.1? Every song have a same producer and album and picture. Does anyone know how to fix that? Tnx

sony experia z3compact phone is not worth it! its a trash !
i cant believe it, i was fooled by this brand!
water proof? what a perfect lie
overheating and you are unable to use it but, you can cook an egg on it!
good camera yes, but after a week you need to say goodbye to your pictures if you didnt store it on sd.
unareliable phone, screen wont fuction when its starts to heat.!
a waste of money, im even ashamed of showing my phone to my friends coz if they borrowed it and start to heat,? well you cant use it again, screen wont function,and say hello to technician again and pay for technician repair fee again and again
im so disapointed;they should have covered the tech fee or repair if issue is over heating,its not ourfault if sony experia is a garbage
