jaguar1980, 21 Oct 2015Hello, In fact i have been happy with Sony Z1 , and wanted to get the small new version of Z... moreif its still under warranty and fixed many times, either reject it via sony manager or claim on house insurance...
Not good after 2 months ,it has sudden death and not work again.
I brought it to Sony Service Center and the technician said it 'll take long time to get the spare part.2 weeks for sparepart,1 week for repair ,and now it has been 3 weeks since I put my z3 compact in Sony Service Center. If they're correct, it'll take 6 weeks for service,but honestly I doubt for it. My colleagues faced 2 months for repair. :(
Just suggestion for you guys, pls buy the mobile phone which has the good service after selling.
was really happy with everything about the phone for 2-3 months then the "shatterproof screen" shattered after a slight knock which was cushioned by a coat, not happy at all, im waiting to see what the verdict is after arranging to have it sent back to sony
Been Using the phone for the past 3 months. no problems whatsoever. Excellent battery life- easy 2 days with normal usage. performance is more than adequate as well. No negatives to report at all. highly recmommended.

this drawback is very common ... moreHahhah, it is not sudden death, it is common battery glitch, just plug it on charger while it is turned off and leave it for 5, 6 hours on charger then turn it on... I am Xperia user since 2011.
mahmoud, 27 Oct 2015not good after 4 months it has sudden death and not work again this drawback is very common ... moreIve had similar problems my lcd screen broke! My phone was in my bag hadn't dropped it. My phone was 7 months old when talking to a customer service assistant in a foreign country they were unusually honest and said she had a lot of similar complainrs. One of her curomers had mended his phone three times and it kept happening. My phone provided has refused to mend my phone saying i must have dropped it because of the screen problem it only does this when pressure has been applied. Ive been advised by two other independent phone companies not to mend it beacuse its widely known in this industry that this particular model has this problem and shall probably break again.
I want to get this phone, but after seeing people's review of, I am scared mine will spoil easily and my money will be wasted, should I just get an xperia z1 compact, or should I just get this phone. Would buying a case help!?!?!?
I've had this phone 14 months - amazing battery life great phone to use BUT: flaps don't close, terrible glue used and this phone slowly disintegrates. Screen essentially falls off, flaps fall off, magnetic charger falls off. The volume button got stuck so had to disassemble that side. Build quality ZERO
Anonymous, 26 Oct 2015Read all of the great reviews, and hurried off to by my Sony Xperia. The Sim-card flap didn't ... moreSeems you are not alone there are other people reporting screen or back cover (which is also glass) breaking by themselves. Maybe a bad batch. Thankfully I dropped wife's twice on wood floor and nothing happened, not even a dent

this drawback is very common in sony mobiles
Worst phone ever! screen broken 3 times, for stupide reasons, in less than 5 months. I will never buy a Sony mobile again!
Without prior planning I got this wonderful phone and it is pity how is not valued properly. Great mobile phone, great specs...
Read all of the great reviews, and hurried off to by my Sony Xperia. The Sim-card flap didn't close, so I looked on the internet and found it was a fault, so I sent it back and got a new one. Ignoring my prejudices at some of the negative reviews, I began using my new, repaired one.
Two months on I dropped it from 50 cm (46 to be precise) which is 18 inches, onto a soft carpet. It fell face up, but nevertheless a crack appeared in the screen (which hadn't even hit the floor), and the top three-fifths were rendered useless. Can't type in password, and can't even turn it on. When you find out about the pros (water-proof, great battery life) you think 'oh great phone'. The reality is, unless you keep it wrapped in bloody bubble wrap all the time, it will, realistically drop, and immediately break. So, verdict?
Not worth the price, although it would be a great phone if not for that.
This phone is awesome, I don't know about you but I have no problem whatsoever :)
Use to be fan Sony. Not anymore. Worst scren ever. Third time in less than 8 month screen broken. So I've just paid the phone one more time. Have to look some were else than Sony.
Using this phone for about 8 months and I can say that it is an excellent device. If you don't need a big screen or you don't want to search all the time for a plug to charge your phone, go for it.
I bought this phone last May 2015 and unfortunately after 4 months of use its bluetooth and wifi wont turn on anymore so i brought it to a sony service center and technician there told me that the motherboard has to be replaced. And to date, its been a month since i had my sony z3c for repair. I must say I regret that i bought this phone.:-(
