Jim, 05 May 2016Same issue in here.. I'm afraid this is the hardware issue :(It seems that it is hardware issue.
My phone came back today and MB is only thing that is left from the old phone. They changed everything!!! Screen, housing... It looks brand new now and works as it should. I just hope it won't broke again...
I am not getting notification for marshmallow update. It is not showing when I am checking in the settings also. With Xperia companion also it is not showing. I am in India. Please help.
AnonD-533957, 05 May 2016I have the same problem with you. can i ask what did you do?Took it to service center few days ago and still waiting for their response. Will post an update after they bring my phone back.
yup. got te M update on my z3c (d5833). everything works fine, battery fine since im not using stamina mod in the previous version. one thing i didn't like is the search bar on the apps drawer (menu, or whatever it is). it is lousy that i cant disable it.
This is the best phone i've used so far. It runs fast as lightning, the camera is superb, the built quality is top-notch, the screen is surprisingly good for HD resolution. Note that i didnt mention the battery life because after update to 5.1.1 it has been lower by 2 hours of screen on-time.

I have a problem with notification area. Unable to pull it down from center of the screen. It works from left corner. I have 5.1.1 installed.
Got my phone to service center today, will see what they have to say. Anyone had similar problem?
Who the hell said that Z3 compact is water resistant.
When I keeps it in water every time its back and front both cameras are condensed.
Every times water gets inside my phone's camera.
Dewdan, 26 Apr 2016Updated today and battery drain is huge mine too... the battery drains so fast it barely lasts one day now even if it's mostly on standby. i deeply regret updating. any suggestions how i could solve the problem?

Does anyone know what the difference between the normal z3 compact and the Japanese version from dacomo? Beside frequency is there anything else? Is it true that only the Japanese version supports quick-charge 2.0?thanks guys
JL, 24 Apr 2016Update not yet for my sony experia z3c in india. Anyone got marshmallow for D5833 in India? Not yet, even Indian support site is stating Coming soon. In fact my Z3C is still @ .232 whereas support site shows .264
Just updated my Xperia Z3c (D5803) in Finland and seems to be nice update with couple of new features but why leave Stamina-mode out?!? Yes, there is Doze but Stamina was one of the key features in Xperia phones. Also, that left side page on apps screen where you access Play Store, What's new etc. is gone :/ I really liked that. So Marshmallow update for me is kinda 50-50 result.
I got new update 1 hour ago. I didnt installed it yet. I have doubts about battery life and RAM usage. I think marshmallow use more of both. Whats ur opinion guys?
After the update the phone is quite faster but I am not loving the iphone kind of swipe to search at homepage. Battery does drain faster but not that much (without stamina ofc).
Bought this phone and 5 months later the screen shattered falling from a chair to the ground, could not use the phone anymore as the touch was not responsive. I bought an new original display, had a professional exchange it and put a glass screen coat for protection, but it broke again in less than 2 months.
Besides, one of the side lids, the one from the charging plug, fell off, they are not resistant.
I'm very disappointed with this phone
