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.
Man HTC is sending update to even e8 & Dezire Eye phones. I am feeling bad having to wait updates for Z3 series.
But the new update takes away stamina mode so now I also feel not so sure about it but I want the camera2 api too. Damn it can't make up my mind.

Gps doesnt work anymore after lollipop upgrade, no solution so far (6 months!), hard reset doesnt help, sony says i have to submit it to repair but they say i have to pay even if its under warranty!! A lot of people has the same problem, try to google "z3 compact gps issue" and check by yourself. No more sony for me
xperia sucks not really a waterproof device tsk and if it had damages better to buy a new phone than repairing it. Never ever trust this phone under water :( really upset with this malfunctioning phone.

But... The Z3C has more refined design, not as chunky and odd as the Z1C. It´s also nicer in your palms. Improved grip of the handset. The Z1C feels a bit old desing-wise. (Sorry all you Z1C-owners out there!)
Z1C and Z3C is otherwise very similar phones. Shows there´s not much happening in the smartphone department of 2013-2016. I could have gone for the Z1C and saved some dough. I´m not a power-user so the only important thing for me is that they dont cancel updates for the OS. Newer = Hopefully longer lasting pleasure.
microphone stop working after 10 months. I can hear the caller but the caller cant hear me unless I talk on the speakerfone. Gave it in for repair , under warrenty, and got it back afrer 6 weeks. Authorised repair centre says its beyond economical repair. They say I damaged the SD card slot!! Whats this got to do with the microphone I ask. They say its abused!!!
I am so angry and dissapointed at Sony SA. I asked for proof, as my sd card works perfectly well. The fone was never dropped, and looks new after nearly a year.
They sent me a pic of my fone with a damaged SD slot. Guess what? I took a foto of the SD slot, and its not the one from the pic. AND... I gave my fone in for repair in January 2016. Their foto was dated 17th December 2015.. !!!

My Z3C's audio speakers are real poor in hear-ability. Low sound, both with speakerphone and ring tone. Very bad. Rest all good features
Hey! I jave thing I gotta check with you guys. My Z3C's audio speakers are real poor in hear-ability. Low sound, both with speakerphone and ring tone (incoming). Is this typical Z3C? My friend got a Z1C and it is MUCH better. By miles. Due to the speker grill or something? Hmm..

I have read about phone warming up but never read about screen coming out.
So U are either blabbering or have a defective piece.
On paper it is a really nice phone, but for one issue. The phone gets really hot an my screen is coming out! There are many reports of this online, an it has happened to two friends as well.
Because of this issue I can't recommend the phone.
AnonD-122669, 06 Mar 2016Does anyone kno when are we getting Marshmello update ? It's out on M8 already which is older.I want to know that too. Well, Z5 series started getting Marshmallow in Japan already so my guess is that Z3 series will be getting it in April-May. But i hope sooner than that.
The most fragile phone i've ever have... got a dead zone in the upper part of touch screen after 8 months of normal use, not to mention the overheating issue.
