i had it now for year and 1 month ...
its the best device i ever had ... no lag , amazing battery , i work as telecommunication eng where i need Data & GPS all day so this is the best solution you can get , its broken now so i replaced it with nexus 5X but i really hope that sony will bring it again with its battery capability , the z5 compact is way back not like this monster ... !!
Had the Z3 Compact for a year, not sure why people are giving negative reviews cuz my experience with it is amazing. I dropped it a few times from around waist height and it didn't break. There was this incident where the touch screen wasn't working and I sent it to my local Sony Repair Centre and they repaired it in less than a week. For those who said the customer service was poor, I'm not sure about you guys, but my experience their customer service was great and they even provide extra info/details about the repair.
Overall, I love this phone and I do enjoying using and showing off it's unique waterproof feature, not to mention a great camera and battery life.
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!
Shame, I thought Sony was quality. Used to be. I have mine on contract with Vodafone, last November, problems with microphones, and screen not lighting up when calls comming in, so can't answer, or use touch screen for numbers, during automated calls, Dies, will not switch on just vibrates even when good charge in battery, plug it into charger for a second and it comes back to life, meant to have been fixed by Vodafone Technicians (Not sure if Sony), same problems, with additional of 'water proof' flap opens all the time, magnetic charger parts also stopped working. Initially promised new replacement under guarantee, but Vodafone told me untruths the first of many, now they will only replace it after failing to fix it 3times! Going to see if Sony are more honest and have more integrity. However was informed that the early models (2014) Had design flaws there was a programme on it, basically saying that even when 'repaired' the early ones malfunction again, a Vodafone employee also stated this. The newer ones are meant to be OK. Though unless you use the magnetic charger, the conventional flap will loosen, and flap open after time, same as the Z2's. Come on Sony, get your reputation back, as solid and reliable and quality please. Thanks
my best cell phone Sony Xperia Z3 its too much best cell of sony z serois
Gonna Have to buy this one! 9/10.still slightly expensive.Buying it if the price falls around 1,500-2,000 by coming months.As of now the price is still quite expensive which is 27k.
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!
