Anonymous, 28 Feb 2018hi.. can this phone choose only 5ghz band on wifi hotspot?yes
I have Xperia Z3 Compact from day 1 as it appears on the EU market, still works fine, no issues, just once broke display (my fault), repaired with original one for 85 Â€.
Heavy user, many apps, accounts, banking, 3 navigations, Nova Launcher, Opera + Chrome, Snapseed, Kindle, ...
Can work whole day (first battery!).
Camera could really be better compared to other similar phones, but I anyhow use Fujifilm X-T10 camera (mirrorless) as I want to have good photos, so not important for me.
Really satisfied with responsiveness and speed of this "old" phone.

Although I have never heard of an Xperia phone having that many issues in one phone, although it's possible to be unlucky enough to get a faulty problematic one, but not to write off the all Sony phones. But if it was 2nd hand the question does beg to be answered, (why did that person get rid of phone?). I've been using Xperia phones for years from z1 onwards. And there have been bugs like notification pull down issues experienced in z3 along with WiFi issues. Rather disappointed with that as z3 is awesome.
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2018You're not wrong, I've owned my Z3C since 2014 and my headphone jack has gone wonky twice now.... moresame problem happened to me twice :( wonky headphone connecting point on the top of the mobile
The Z3 compact was a really nice phone. The size is not gigantic like the most other phones, it still had a headphone jack, it was responsive, very durable, and it did not have any hardware issues in the almost 3 years that I had it. My main issue with the phone is that it only has 16gb internal storage. This is problematic for me who plays multiple mobile games. Even with transfering content to the SD card, I would constantly be within 1gb of full capacity. The battery is another problem. Initially it would only need to be charged once every ~36 hours, but near the end of my time with it I was charging it twice a day. Though this could be due to my increased use of my phone. I still use it as an alarm and to read news when I get up, but I upgraded to the XZ premium which is a massive phone, but has the memory, specs, and functionality that I was looking for.
This is my 3rd sony mobile.touch screen stop working automatically.i never buy sony product in my life.

First time the headphone jack went bad was just a tick over 1.5 years, which got repaired by Sony under warranty but happened again, for the second time about 14 or 15 months after it was repaired originally.

the only issue that is really bugging me is that the AUX port is wearing off really fast. I like to listen to musik on my phone from time to time, but after the first year the AUX port was unusable, headphones and speakers can't connect to it anymore which is an absolute shame if you're fond of music.

Your just obviously trolling anyway so hater gotta hate.
Bought the japanese version. It's working good despite it overheats quickly. The camera is bad (maybe because I bought a pre-owned). Overall, look for the custom rom since this phone still hold much potential coming to 2018.
Do we have same touch and less volume issues in docomo z3 compact Japanese version as we have these issues with international version.
Good phone but worst quality ever. If you want good small and phone that will fail on multiple reasons This is the right one.
Problems I had:
Micro SD holder failed. Card was poping out all the time...
hatches for water and dust resistance failed even I did it charged with magnetic connector...
Partially Touch failed soon after that.
Display failed after that.
And after that display connector burned on motherboard so you could not change display anymore.
Im using Ericsson's phone from 1998. After that i was using Sony Ericson. And this is my first Sony and definitely last Sony.
The only thing is headphone audio quality that was extraordinary with proper after buyed headphones. Iphone 6s cant even get it close with same headphone...
Well last time I posted an opinion, I thought the phone went dead after suddenly stopped charging. By then my partner broke his Samsung galaxy s5 and I had to give him my galaxy a3 2017 and I then tried my 3rd attempt to fix this phone. And you know what? It worked. It tends to overheat easily but for 2014 model both internet speed and battery life are incredible. While my partner loves his new Samsung, I'm more than happy with this little trooper.
I love this phone, it's fast and the battery life is pretty decent.
It's a shame the glasses are so fragile, I never hit it, it never fell but it's been almost a month and both front and back glasses are cracked. I don't care so much about the back one but the front crack will eventually render it useless.
AnonD-709823, 22 Oct 2017my Sony z3 compact while on charge the LCD cracked and Sony refused to fix itI have same problem , after 3 monts use
I used slimm rom 3.8 marshmallow and very good battery life. Elitekernel v3 seems good.
Cyberian Camera 8.0. And quality is unbelievable.
Anturu score 59450.
I thought that this would be my favorite cell forever, but I end up being the one that ended with my preference for Sony. Too low audio volume; The audio jack stopped working in a few months; and a year later the touch screen also stopped working as it happened to the vast majority of its owners.
I bought this phone new 2014/2015 Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. Unfortunately, the screen lower all 3 buttons not working. I can not go back to main screen if I received any call or if I am on internet. What a sad. Only can go back if I switched off totally and on again. Sony should have a look all this problems with free of cost. I was mad fan of Sony now very disappointed.
