Quite disappointed. I have been a Sony fan for 6 years now. My Z3 compact 21 MP camera just died and the screen black. If you turn on the flashlight it won't go off unless you restart the phone. Apparently it's a common problem from Sony support forums but without a solution. My next phone will definitely be an iPhone.

Anonymous, 31 Mar 2016Well the camera UI is like the Z5 now but did not really notice any improvement in camera qualityAre more settings available like shutter speed. Have U used any 3rd party app ?
Is manual mode still limited to only 8mp ?
Jjj, 01 Apr 2016Can you explain about the manual mode settings(like iso)to take better shots?U will have to read about it on net & look at videos to understand because there are different settings for different scenes.
But Generally, high iso is used to for low light but that can increase the noise too. So, U have to find the optimal settings.
Increasing EV[exposure value] can also increase the light in the image.
If the object U are shooting is not moving then use HDR mode.
All manual controls are available in 8mp resolution which is generally enough. But if U are going to use zoom then high suggest U use higher mps.
Also, try 3rd party apps as well. There are many good one like Better camera, Camera mx, FV-5 & google camera.

Jjj, 26 Mar 2016Thanks...what about camera after the update?....Is any improvement in the camera?Well the camera UI is like the Z5 now but did not really notice any improvement in camera quality
I love a good durable flagship phones, and this is one of them.
Used to have the z1c but that has been used and lasted with me for almost 2 years till it battery became trashy... So I switched to this phone and I'm liking it so far except I noticed the internal 16g of storage had became insufficient with the apps and their growing sizes with each update as well the data being stored while using them on the long run, and now I keep getting the notification of internal memory 75%!!!
Sony is considering this over noticed in their new line ups of the z5, still they need to provide bigger internal storages to cope up.
Hmm, the other thing is that I've noticed was the durability of Sony products, let's say after using the phone about 2 years or so it becomes useless and junk then you'll have to go for another new device, but for my iPhone 5s noticed it's still having strong durability than sony and lasting longer with me than other phones.
Really would love from Sony to make phones with high quality that could last longer and longer rather than end up in trash...

I have the Z3c for 1 year and 3 months already and I didn't have any problems! Until 2 days ago when I could not swipe down my notification bar... :( it is really frustrating because now sometimes it works sometimes not. And I have to swipe down multiple times until it works.
Jjj,I am currently running this beta and it is pretty fast,but it isn't too much faster than 5.1.1.
I am getting a bit of a lower AnTuTu score but probably because the device was very hot at the time I ran the test,and I do have the same battery life as before but it should be better for you because I have Viper4android which does drain battery
Water proof is a myth. Just fell into swimming pool (all compartments on phone closed properly) the phone is f#@ked!
Is anyone updated the beta version of marshmallow? Share the experience about the update.
Ajith , 10 Mar 2016 My Z3C's audio speakers are real poor in hear-ability. Low sound, both with speakerphone and ... moreAir gun high pressure (with care) or those Air bottled spray to clean keyboard. Is just dust I was frustrated but since I used the air gun sounds like new. Have look at internet where the speakers are. Good luck.
