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?

After using for two months, my Z3C screen black out every now and then. Unable to switch on as well as hard reset by pressing power button & volume buttons immediately. Need to wait for few hours later to switch on again. Sent for warranty but same thing happened again two days later. Is this common for Sony mobile phones?

Nice phone handling so good battery awesome, cam and lcd quilty also much better.
I've been using it for about a month now. So far so good. No problem with my screen as of yet. Still fast. Still no scratch. Still no problem w/ it's jack. Didn't bother to submerge underwater,though barometer says it's seals work. I've dropped it once from my desk to the wooden floor, no cracks from that. It looks so sweet!! I'll remove my plastic screen protector and update this site again after a month.
Everyone who is going to buy Sony, forget it as a nightmare, before i had Xperia Z - same problem with touchscreen even earlier Xperia P - permanent brakes and with the incoming calls, now Z3C - phone bought year ago, used with protective glass + protective which did not save it. Sony looks beautiful, but the build quality and components just awful!!!
mine has given the same problem... the headphone jack has some glitch...
a good phone tbh , its drain battery when sync is on , otherwise it will last for two days normal use ! i didnt like the speakers the sound sound glitchy , i had a serious problem with the phone and its the headphone jack it stopped working probably and music would cut from a small move from u headphone wire and its not from the headphones dont worry guys i checked other one , so i had to the repair center and here where i suffered teknosat are the worst in this stuff i wish i had bought it from media market there assisstent would be better , now the phone is still being repaired , today i went to take the phone to know that they didnt actually do anything to my problem by saying your headphones are not working which is a lie bcz teknosat repair center is to lazy to work there assssEES .
ok to sum everything :
1- yes u should buy this phone
2- dont buy it from teknosat
3- take care while using ur headphones or any headset
4- GO BUY IT DONT LISTEN TO THOSE MY BATTERY IS DRAINING WHINNERS
5- btw it is waterprof ! some mobiles came out from the factory and they were not water prof , but not all , use it at ur own risk . !!
Mustaqdem , 22 Nov 2015Go to display select glove mode and it will work Many thanks for your sharing.
It worked. But still can't use my finger, just fuctioned by nail or anything not relate to skin. So inconvenient.
So this failure caused by hardware or software? Do I need replace touch screen to recover 3 button? Pls advise me.
Don't believe that its water resistant - My brand new Z3 died just after I simply rinsed under tep! Silly...
AnonD-233747, 22 Nov 2015I have z2 for 1.5yrs and z3c for 7months. Using both but besides the size factor, z2 is better... moreThanks. Actually, I also thought that Z2 is better than Z3C in many ways. I am thinking to buy Z2 in some years (currently I've M4).
AnonD-458606, 22 Nov 2015Just a question; Is Z3 Compact better than Z2? I have z2 for 1.5yrs and z3c for 7months. Using both but besides the size factor, z2 is better in many ways: better screen (color calubration), slightly better battery life, much better speakers, camera is same
