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

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
not good after 4 months it has sudden death and not work again
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.:-(
In fact i have been happy with Sony Z1 , and wanted to get the small new version of Z3 compact
BUT IT WAS A MISTAKE
when i bought it November 2014 as soon as it came out, by March 2015, less than 5 months from buying it I found the screen getting detached from the phone , and the SDcard holder decided to eject the memory card on its own.
Since i bought it from UAE , i had to send it back to be fixed, and cost me time to transport it. Then it has been delivered to the agent and found that these issues are common within this model.
WHICH IS A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT.
received it back in September and within 2 days found that the SD CARD is still ejecting , so left it in UAE to be fixed received it back yesterday to find that the Touch Sensor of the top of the screen is not working and i can not drop down the notification menu.
tried the diagnostics tool and found that i can not clear the very top part of the screen.
THIS IS REALLY CHEAP quality of service, and Hardware. I do not understand how would a maintenance center of a SONY AGENT does not fix what they deliver before delivery.
In addition to the fact this experience reflects a real cheap product and terrible after sale service.
Am i suppose to through out a phone that i have paid quiet a lot for only after using it like 4 months ??????????
my warranty will be void soon, and due to the different countries it takes time to get it fixed then get it back to use and test.
After some time i m use z2 update lolipop otg bug show . otg not support on lolipop version. Z3c batter handling compare z3 and z2 . Z3c fast charging compare z2. Battery backup also better on z3c.
