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.

Sony Xperia Z3 compact OR Samsung galaxy s5 neo .. Weatherproofness and the main thing CAMERA? front and back ? I know sony is 20 and Samsung 16 but in general is it sonys one better? Im getting a new phone and those are my options .. Which should I choose? As I said photography plays big role here. Is it true that sony breaks easy? Any comment of other characteristics will be of helpful. Thanks :)
I have just upgraded from ZR to Z3 compact but I am not able to restore the backup done on ZR to Z3C, can anyone help?
Best phone ive ever owned.The build quality is superb. Dropped it too many times!and not a scratch. Takes great photos and video.Perfect size. Enough RAM and slot for external storage. Surfs the internet like a dream.Enough said.Thought about replacing it but at this moment utterly pointless. Specs will have to improve significantly before this is going to happen.
