I want to buy this phone. But reading many bad reviews about weak glass & weak Camera.
Shoud I go for it ? I wanted to wait for Z5 compact but it has not been realeased in my country yet & will possibly be costly. My current phone is giving many problems & i won't be able to wait much longer. So, shoud I for Z3 Compact ?
Have u notice that the upper speaker of z3c had low audio since the update??? And the phone call had also reduce, Reply asap if you have same problem
Rain, 07 Dec 2015Wonderful phone, terrible build quality. I am extremely disappointed in Sony as my phone had ... morewell at least it fall on the ground , mine it was cracked in my pocket ... but the solution is easy just buy new one from amazon it wont cost you more than 11$ ..
I have the phone 6 months now , and its close to perfect. A little brighter screen so i can read in the sun in the snow (yeah , i use it as GPS compass when ski touring , so i need brightness). All else , its super stable , very nice battery and you even get the choice to upgrade or not.
Hope Sony keeps their mobile business..will sit out on the z5 as mine is still too good, but z6 could do , chuss
Wonderful phone, terrible build quality. I am extremely disappointed in Sony as my phone had a short drop (less than 50cm) onto a tile floor and the entire back glass panel cracked straight through from left to right. The crack ends right at the power button and since then the device would not switch on again. And off course Sony's warranty does not cover accidental damage, even though this would not necessarily happen to a phone with good built quality at such a short drop. I am sorry to say, but I will never buy a Sony again until they stop making these horrible glass back phones.
Dictator, 26 Nov 2015The Mighty MiniatureI ve bn using Sony Z3 compact for about 11 months,it's perfect no any problems at all.
Had my Sony z3 compact for 4 months now..several times my daughter drop my phone on the floor for about 2meters but good thing nothing happens even small scratch.we always love having selfies and videos on it because of the cute applications.we love the camera itself as well,its perfect.but what I love the most is the battery life.I can actually used my phone straight for about 2-3 days without charging just using my data connection,music,messenger,text and camera as well..everything is perfect on it..so I really doubt about the cracked screen on some z3 c.
is people came in here to give their opinions about the device or just to tell the story of their lives?
I bought mine at kimstore for Php16k. I attached a lanyard to it so everytime i use it, my fingers go through the lanyard. That way,it still clings to my fingers if it happens to slip off my hands. I had mine bare because it looks sexier that way.

am sorry for what i will saying for you, but am sorry your sister she is right what she she said to you about Sony Z3c very easy class break , my phone class broken from 0.750cm its wast that height distance.
Yesterday my favorite z3c just fell down from little hight even I have covered it with a tempered glas too, but the touch was completely broken.I think they might not used a gorilla glass inside it..
Screen is not shutter proof.Buyer be warned.My phone dropped from about 0.7m and it cracked.Once the screen protector was removed further damage to the screen.Currently phone cannot power up.Buyer beware

Then yesterday happened. I have read a lot of reviews about the glass breaking too easily. My sister even warned me about it. But I didn't listen. I trust the Sony brand so much to believe the reviews. Now, you don't know how much I regretted it. I have only been using it for 5 mos, and it was the first time it dropped too since I'm so paranoid about the breaking glass. Now, goodbye to Php 26,000+.
i don't know why I see many posts about device braking for falling from small height, I was watching videos on youtube about drop test on street on 1 to 2 meters height and no damages on screen, some people even post phone falling from half meter and on carpet but device broken or even breaking just to have it on your pocket, I don't know......
The screen of my Z3c just shattered today, despite the fact that Sony claimed it to be shatterproof. My daughter tripped on the charger, it fell from the bed to the floor (the bed is only as high as my 2-year-old daughter's waist) and it shattered just like that. The phone screen itself is more shattered than the glass protector. I really like the Sony brand. I just don't know how to feel now.
I am seriously thinking about getting this little monster but now I also have the option to get the oneplus x, I know difference on prices and specs but my concern is about built quality for sony device, any advised?
