hi, i just update to lollipop 5,1,1 and i see the proximity sensor is not working, i enter to service menu and that option of proximity keep loading what can i do ??
I bought two Sony Xperia Z3 Compact phones some 5 months ago, one for me one for my wife. I do look after my toys and my wife let kids to play with hers, Her phone has been drooped tens of times and all is good. My phone hasn't been on the floor not even once and the small rubber corner at the bottom of the phone came off , then I noticed that the charging port cover seal came off loose, bigger surprise I did get when I noticed that whole screen starting from the top of the phone came off. I didn't drop it and the screen still is 100% functional but it can be pulled from the case about 3mm. I've send it to Sony under warranty and they said that is my fault that the phone is damaged and they can repair it if I pay £113 for repair. SONY SUCKS
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2016Sony Xperia Z3 Compact or Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML 4 GB RAM/32GB?undoubtedly, z3 compact.
I bought Z3 C's in December 2014. My younger (23) son dropped his in February, screen cracked, slowly fading screen functionality, headphone jack not working. Replaced in June 2014 with another one: now headphone jack not working, seal on USB flap useless/gone, charger port loose and comes away from the phone with the magnet. Not Happy.
Second original one has issues: overheats, laggy, drops calls, reboots itself randomly. Not Happy.
Third one now has developed headphone jack issues, charging flap seal gone (replaced, now using a mag charger). Not Happy.
All in all, I wish I had NOT bought any of these Sony phones. Very, very disappointed in Sony.
Has there been any update for this phone's camera like Z5 compact received 1 ?

Rain, 07 Dec 2015Wonderful phone, terrible build quality. I am extremely disappointed in Sony as my phone had ... moreYeah, what is the point of a glass back? My Sony SP has a plastic back and metal frame around it, it feels solid and strong. I haven't dropped it yet!

Great phone but unfortunately selling it on eBay as it keeps giving me problems ever since it updated to Lolipop. It had the "sleep of death" three times already........

I have the same problem
My phone gets a swap of motherboard. After that I had the same problem of auto shutdown.
I again gave the phone to Sony service center in India.
But yesterday when i received my phone it was working normal. But from today same problem.
They had reply me as my Sim card or memory card is a problem.
I have been using my Sim card and memory card of 64GB in Samsung Note 2 since a month.
My mom is also using Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. As we took it had the same problem. Buts its motherboard has been got replaced and now its 8 months it working absolutely fine.
I am very disappointed with Sony.
I am using Sony from last 12 years and have used sony's and sony erricsson's best phone but this is the first time things are happening with me.
Great phone, have had mine for a year now, always in its nassin case with nuglass front glass protection. This phone has been dropped lots of times and the nuglass protecter did crack but the screen didn't so I just keep replacing the screen protecters and not the screen(done this twice). The nuglass protecters are a must for any new phone would highly recommend them. I think mine cost ten bucks from ebay. Evey time you put a new one on my friends would say do you have a new phone? The down side of my z3 is the sony cradle I used to change my phone pulled the charging port out of my phone so I had to use the usb port to charge my phone so now the flap that covers it does not shut properly and spends most of its time dangling off the side of my phone being a pain in the butt. This is still the best phone I have had a would get another sony if this one died.
Ador, 29 Dec 2015I have only been using this phone for 2 months..Recently i accidentally dropped it from a heig... moreThe back glass actually is too fragile and sometimes doesn't even require a drop to be broken i.e. can self crack - at least in my case. See what happened to my z3c here:
The first long crack that you see on the top right appeared on its own. However, the rest of it that you see in the shape of web appeared only once I accidentally dropped it from a small height. I am in no way going to replace it since its a good INR 3,500 investment for me.
Hope this helps.
