It says it's waterproof,how come I could not see anything on my screen after dipping it onto the pool??Apparently,my z3c is not functioning right now and I have to spend much just to fix it. I guess the "waterproof" thingy was just a baloney after all.
I have the Sony xperia z3 compact, and the back of phone cracked while in my pocket after just a couple of days. The camera stoped focusing after that.... Then I bought "unbrakable glass" witch I mounted on the front of the phone. After a couple of months, the front glas broke (also while it was in my pocket), but the "unbrakable" front glas was still intact!
The phone is of increadible poor quality, and I would never recomend this phone to anyone!
Best Phone just i have one issue Z5 Compact comes with tough coating screen but not Z3 compact remaining all are superb.
First I saw positive comments about this phone and got one. Now i see mostly negative comments. I m using it since a month and its going great. God knows how people handle it and face issues.
its hard to find anything rock solid here for everone that says z3compact is good theres one that has a horror story about, that coupled with just how poor the dam grammar is my god im not expert on english but i almost feel less knowledgeable on this subject having read a few pages,
I had a Z3 Compact for 4 days before the screen cracked... in my pocket!
Sony have refused to repair this under their warranty and refuse liabiity for the problem. I've been left with the choice of paying for the repair of an item whose fault I did not cause or giving up altogether. Not good.

If that doesn't work you can reinstall android software with sony pc companion.
I had my compact for months now and had updated its software the latest of the lollipop version. however, my phone when blank a few use after it was successfully updated. it won't start up. HELP! I guess the lollipop update was a bad move. can anyone help me? ;(
Same problem as countless before me--screen separating screen from the device after only 6 months. No physical damage to cause it, either. I advise staying away from this phone.
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.
