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
If you have battery problems with lollipop, you should reset your phone, UPDATE to lollipop will probably have that issue, though that will make you lose your data
All those fragility problems can be easily forgoten with a Ringke Fusion case and a gorila glass adhesive screen protection, buy this Phone, its amazing!
I am planning to buy z3 compact. but many people complaining about self cracking screen. It is really true or not?
Screen is sensitive. I have changed it ones and have a new crack in it now. Unfortunately the complete screen is dead if you have a small crack in the corner. The screen is expensive change as well (200 Euro) and unfortunately it does not make any sense to change it again since it will probably break soon again.
I bought Z3C 6 months ago. It was an excellent phone for me until yesterday when 3 button (back, home, minimize) were suddently dead.
I tried all method I know to recover but didn't work. So disappointed.
Any one here got same problem? Pls share your experiences. Tks.
I have this phone for one year now and it was so good at the beginning!
But then I realized all the problems it has...
- Since Lollipop the battery is very shitty... It lasts than one day. What's the point of buying a 400Â€+ phone if you have to turn off all the features...
- It heats like crazy... when I am just using Facebook, Maps.ME or even Instagram for a few minutes... It is VERY unpleasant.
- The back, made of glass, is very very fragile. It already cracked two times, and the second time it had a cover Ringke Fusion... Not going to repair it again.
- When I am walking and I have the phone in my pocket, the pin code is typing all alone... I can feel the phone vibring because the code is not good. But then again the battery doesn't last. OR even weirder, it's unlocked and then the bluetooth, the flashlight, LTE is activated, ALL ALONE... What the f*ck?
- Finally, the IP certification is just a big lie. Good thing that Sony changed his policy about it, but it was too late for me...
I am going to come back to Apple, at least for the price I never EVER had any lag or any other problem, except the battery life. I was thinking of maybe Blackberry PRIV but I like less and less Android. And the Windows Store is so poor that I don't even think of it...
