salman120, 07 Oct 2015xperia z2 vs xperia z3 compact who is the best pleas tell meif bigger screen size matters to you, go for Z2, otw Z3 compact is better
I bought this phone z3 compact in July, battery life was good but not extraordinary as advertised. With the update released just last week battery life is amazing. Earlier it use to lose battery in standby buy not now. I used it light 1 hr of screen on time, couple of short calls and after 24 hours it lost only 18%. I can say after update it's living upto its name
seems like stouts working hard to defame sony high quality products. cheap phones now a days are doing well. and i am sure sony quality is much better than cheap china androids
Please do not submerge device in water or even try to splash water on it.
While I have seen people do this with the device fully functional under water or in the shower, the devices have shown signs of defectiveness after being in contact with water. It seems as if this has become a "standard" only to prevent phones from getting damaged while being used in the rain or getting wet.
To be safe, treat this phone as if water will blow it up.

My previous post below yours explain how the users themselves can cause it to fail.
Deal with it and be smart.
I am an xperia die hard and this latest brand has killed it.
1. Great feel on the hand
3. Great colours with graphics that are not full HD
4. Awesome updates
I own one, for about 8 months now, it has unresolved headphone or mini jack issue/problem. It just stopped recognising any headsets, of all brands/kinds/types... Oh, and this is not an opinion. ITS A FACT!!! and I'm not the only one with the problem.
DO NOT PURCHASE

Lots of users reporting cracked screens (front and back) for no apparent reason. The waterproofing is just a gimmick - just more expensive to replace and fragile.
Cat S50 or Aspera R6 - while not perfect - cheaper.

I've used this phone for about 8 months and it's pretty amazing. Battery works so fine, and seems nothing's bad for this awesome beast but one thing yet ironically...when Sony build these up with 20.7 MP cameras and stuffs but with a very cheap plastic lens cover which is VERY easy to be scratched, and it happened on my phone. I got to remove it with a new one and its fine now but it still annoys me sometime. I hope Sony will consider this in the future if they still want to seriously compete on a high-end premium smartphone.
I believe this "phone" is one of the best phones for many reasons
1. Fast for whatever you are doing on it
2. battery life is unremarkable
3. Water resistant "which is very reliable if you
are not dumb"
Phone is (or rather was) okay, but the water resistance is a HUGE SCAM. Never buying a Sony product again.
Drape, 27 Sep 2015Yes like anyone would ever believe that. I will teach you how to lie. First tip: follow this s... moreThis is bullshit. I own Z3 Compact for almost 1 year now. Great phone, great battery & great updates. Last week I dropped it in a restaurant & there is no even a scratch. No scratches to be seen after almost 1 year of use without any protection. I've made demonstrations in the sink for my friends - phone proved to be 100% waterproof. Stop trolling, please.
Worst phone I ever owned after having Apple. Batterylife being drained by something, phone overheats, regular freezez. Menus were designed by an idiot. Dont buy this nonsense phone
Someone help me....
I love this phone. I have a 5.3 phone. I have a little doubt about 4.6 size
Anybody can say is this phone enough for web or gaming or els

branimir.erc, 24 Sep 2015hi everyone i bought this phone thinking hell yeah it has a great battery life but boy was i w... moreI agree with you.. I charge mine everyday but I am an extreme user because I am on long vacation rigth now so I got nothing to do but to play with my z3c all day. I notice that some games eats a lot of battery like blitz brigade but some are not like respawnables. Also, there are tips in xdaforums on how to increse the battery life of this device and it helped me a lot. I uninstalled some bloatwares and disabled almost all of google apps like google map and location. Uninstall and disable all apps that you dont need for example I don't have any Playstation at home so I disabled remote play app. Also, do you notice dropping battery by more than 3 percent when you are not using it? If yes, then you have a problem and should factory reset your phone. Mine drops only 2 percent without using for 10 hours. Also, you can gain access to developer options and disable and enable some features (google it) Download greenify(it can work without root). i think it can go 2 days with moderate usage and 3 days with very ligth usage. You can also enable stamina mode, ultra stamina, etc. Your last option is rooting, it will help you save lots of battery. But personally, I didn't feel I need to root my phone because it can already satisfy my needs. Hope this helps.
