My experience with my z3 compact was bad from the beginning to the end. Since day one, the sim and microSD plastic flaps where a problem. Closing properly was not possible. Then I had a touchscreen malfunction. Sent it to assistance and they replaced the screen (warranty). When I decided to sell it (last week), I realized the sim plastic tray was broken, so had to replace it before selling. My z3 compact never fell down or had any accident, so it was very hard to accept eveything. Going to nexus 5x and, probably, never going back to sony. Unfortunately, it was a big disappointment.
AnonD-497637, 06 Feb 2016Is it good?? or Z3 is good?? plz reply...Both are amazing. But Z3 feels so premium compared by Z3 compact...
Is it worth to buy this phone now compared to Z5C ? Any really significant issues faced for this phone in general & not just by a single user ?
My z3 compact one year and one month has a defective screen. Started at small and now got bigger. Seem that its dying slowly. Been monitoring this using the diagnostics > test > touchscreen and the dead pixel started at the upper side has now going down. Im very disappointed. Thought that i will have this for more than 2 years up :-(
AnonD-463920, 31 Jan 2016When using the phone outside, in sunlight, blue dots appear on the screen. Any I deal what this is?It is digitizer. This is normal and can be seen with other phones also - depends of the display type.
The phone is amazing,it does get a bit warm but only when you play a high demanding game or something like that,the camera is good but not really good in low-light situations,it performs like an S6,but maybe even quicker and overall it is a solid performer
Doe it heat very much? Or it just gets warm? What is thev average temp it reches while playing games, movies, heavy usage, etc. And frankly r the heating issues true?
Anonymous, 03 Feb 2016hey guys..want to buy this z3c soon..is it worth in 2016??? I think yes it is worth. I did it after using ip5s and blackberry passport and I am very satisfied. Fast, compact, good Camera and pretty balanced android. And this days also very good price. If you doesnt need fingerprint i dont think so you need to throw money for Xperia z5c.
Has anyone in India received 23.4.A.1.264 update? It is showing on Support India site as latest update but when I am checking for update, it is showing you have latest update.
I had mine on holiday 5 months ago and i was taking videos under the water in the pool and it still works perfectly today
I have this phone about 1 Month, before that I had S5 mini. Z3C is much better and faster compared to Samsung which become pretty lagy after after only few months of usage, but there are some stuff which frustrate me in comparing to S5 mini. For instance, stupid unnecessary information which constantly occupy lock screen and can not be turned off. Idiotic gallery which can not be opened as default in folder view but it always open in "All content" and mix pictures from different sources like Viber, etc. which is quite stupid. On screen navigation buttons are very non ergonomic, occupy part of screen in most applications and in some cases they are hidden and it is sometimes problem to perform fast navigation, return to home or start task manager (in camera mode for instance). No usable weather widget, so you must search for 3rd party solution which is not an easy task, finally I somehow settled with Amber weather which seems most informative and least irritant. You can not perform infinite swipe on main screen, so I tend to keep minimal number of home screens. Earphone output volume is to low for my taste. Buit-in email app has stupid way of handling with image reduction size (main reason why I despite gmail app), on samsung when you select multiple images and send by email, he once asks me for picture reduction (small/mid/full) and apply this settings for all selected images, on Sony this works in much more stupid way, sony asks me constantly for image reduction for each image. And If I select "always", than he will make same image reduction for all mails in a future, I must to dig deep in to menu to change that option. Irt seems that all app which I used on Samsung is made to be more stupid and non-ergonomic on Sony, only good side is that it is not laggy as Samsung apps. But hey, I had lot of complains on Samsung also, this is the reason why I sell it at the end.
BTW, seems that OTG is not functioning after Lolipop update, Sony WTF you done?
My last phone was an xt910. The She gave this phone to me for christmas. This phone is awesome. It is more powerful than my laptop and does everything I could ever ask it to do.
Only idiots take their tech for a swim. Even GoPros have cases.
Z3 User, 01 Feb 2016I bought a sony Z3 two months ago (through vodacom in South Africa) and i took it for a swim i... moreUnfortunately you and many people can't understand it:( Sony phones are amazing and water resistant not waterproof... They designed to work when raining and not in water...
I bought a sony Z3 two months ago (through vodacom in South Africa) and i took it for a swim in my sons pool (less than 300 mm in depth for 30 sec), guess what that was the last i used it and i didn't even dipped it fully in the water. Now sony refuse to repair they say its beyond economically repaired (WTF????). How can you advertise a product saying its waterproof then its not, and you refusing to repair. this personally disgusted me and i am not leaving this until its sorted. Sony is selling lies.
