I'm a z3 compact owner and after 8 months the front of the mobile (screen) gradually separated from the the back. My guess is because of overheating since device never suffered any physical damage (dropped and etc).
So I would avoid suggest avoiding whole series....
p.s. Sony is not replacing faulty device even though you have warranty. Mobile is still being serviced after 1 month and I'm positive it won't be waterproof anymore ;)
I have few tips. I read many blogs, reviews etc. All says it's best to keep our battery between 40% to 80%. I'm following it. For my convenience, I installed battery alert. It gives a notification tone when my battery reaches 80% while charging. Then I installed battery solo widget. We can keep it as a widget in home screen. When giving a single touch, it says out battery temperature.
The music quality is top notch. One of the best. I'm in Android 4.4.4 and I don't see any issues. It's going smooth. And I use both screen guard and case. I got the tempered glass as free with my purchase. I got a transparent silicon case from online. I'm using a green colour phone. So I like showing off. So bought a transparent case.

Yogi , 04 Sep 2015Is it good to wait for a Z5c...? Or Shall I go For Z3c...? Plz suggest me... did u use a case and screen protector??? If not, then you might need to be a bit more careful... ;)
Best smartphone and i bet you will never find a compact perfect phone like this ever again.
I'm a happy owner of my z3 compact. It's an awesome phone for particular category users like me. I do always prefer compact phones. A phone which should be easy to pick from pocket and shouldn't feel awkwardly big while taking phone calls. This phone is a real beast in all departments. The screen clarity, camera clarity and the sound quality are the awesome features. I'm using a green one. This phone is absolutely for people who prefer compact phones. Though the phone is compact, it's actually 4.6 inch display. So looking at the display estate, it's really good. The one thing which will impress everyone is the amazing battery life. I'm a moderate user and getting a battery life of about 2.5 to 3 days. Camera clarity is superior and the sound quality is awesome. The only thing is people quite won't believe that this is a 30k phone. As I hear people say I spent too much for a small phone. But that's the way it goes. It's a real flagship. Never let's you down. The processor never freeze nor slow down. It's super fast. And people just don't complain about screen cracking. As we spend too much for a phone, it's our responsibility to keep it safe. My 1 year old Xperia e3 still looks fresh out of the box. It's the way how we handle them. So I completely advice people to go for this beast. You will never regret.

Is it good to wait for a Z5c...?
Or Shall I go For Z3c...?
Plz suggest me...
The perfect phone..... except that both front and back glass have now cracked while not in use making the phone useless - Sony appears to still take no responsibility for this well known problem, even though heat seems to be the cause in some way.
Best phone and perfect battery life. White color looks outstanding. No hangs and no plastic feels but can be slippery.
Love this beautiful compact beast
Excellent battery life
Nice colours superb gaming experience
I am using this phone more than 3 weeks now. Really good phone. Battery life is amazing. Superior Auto mode of the camera is hell. But IF you set your setting in to manual. And will select after good settings according to situation It will gives amazing photos too. The pictures which are taken under law lights are have very good quality. I have used samsung S2plus more than 1 year. It is sucks. But this phone is really good.
Anonymous, 02 Sep 2015which one much better? xperia Z3 or xperia Z3 compact?They're almost the same. You should choose by their size basically: Z3C 4.6 inches, Z3 5.2 inches.
Drape, 29 Aug 2015This phone does not crack. I am have it almost 9 months and i had never put any screen protect... moreYeah mine too, I don't like hard case etc like that because I love this phone model.
And I drop it twice but no crack at all not like Zen, you drop it you must replace the screen with a new one like my friends who buy that phone.
Samsung? Nah I don't like a phone with no creativity design etc.
