the phone is awesome. good battery life, fast as hell, very handy :D i love it.
had a g3 and samsung s6 before. but they are too big for me.
the loudspeakers could be better. the camera is ok. the screen could be brighter in direct sunlight, but the colours in lit rooms are awesome !
which would be the best phone z2 or z3 compact plannining to buy any one of it. Help me on choosing the right one.
gguys don't listen about some funny responses. z3 compact is really an awesome phone for users like me. I'm not such a big fan of large phones or phablets. I'm more towards compact phones. and the best thing is this is just a mini version of z3 with same processor and Camera. the pros are amazing build quality. we need a reliable phone. as we are spending nearly 30 thousand for this phone. this phone have shock absorbers on all 4 corners. then it have bumpers around the phone. so it makes it safe if we drop it. then it is water proof. for me the battery never drains. I just charge my phone once in 2 days. then the Camera is an awesome performer. it looks bit grainy in low light area. but I'm bit satisfied with it. then the ppi of 318 is superb. videos look vivid and colourful. almost like watching on a real tv. then the music clarity is too awesome coupled with dual speakers. the speaker quality is excellent. only con is the phone hears slightly. it's just slightly. and manageble. it's not like on s4. the heating problem is easily manageble. so users like me who wants a compact phone, good battery life and can't compromise on hardware can just buy this phone closing your eyes. thank you
Archazey, 11 Aug 2015What about overheating and camera,are they all ok?Also the battery endurance stays at its top?... moreAll of the devices with android lollipop seemed to be affected with this heating issue even the nexus devices. But the heat is tolerable and will not break the glass. Rear camera is excellent night and day while front cam needs ambient light to capture descent image. The battery life is the best out there. It can last a day under extreme usage. It can last 2 days under normal usage. Also at first week the battery is not good but it needed a week of charge-discharge cycle before it can achieve 2-3 days battery life. Also you need to turn off unnecessary apps/features just like google map(location), etc. Just goodle it.
Anurag Awasthi, 10 Aug 2015All in all Sony Xperia Z3 is a shit phone. First and foremost this is NOT A WATERPROOF PHONE. ... moreMy z3c beat the rear camera of the iphone 6 of my friend. In night photography my z3c can still capture descent pictures while her iphone 6 captures washed out images(because of flash). The camera of z3c captures a realistic photo in daylight while iphone 6 camera captures the photo with oversaturation of colors just like samsung which makes the photo seemed to be somewhat animated(unrealistic). In photography what people want is the realistic type of photo but nowadays some prefer oversaturated colors of photo just like you. In front cam, iphone 6 clearly beat my z3c.Also after how many months im using my device and rising it under running water i never had any problem with its waterproofness. Maybe your z3c is fake or its is a defective unit brought online.

Anurag Awasthi, 10 Aug 2015All in all Sony Xperia Z3 is a shit phone. First and foremost this is NOT A WATERPROOF PHONE. ... moreYou, like my brother are just an apple fanatic who cannot seem to accept that apple are no longer the best. So don't comment here to try and stop people from buying what is really a great phone
All in all Sony Xperia Z3 is a shit phone. First and foremost this is NOT A WATERPROOF PHONE. So keep it away from any liquid just like any other phone. This is just a gimmick. Battery starts dying rapidly after some days of use. Initially it performed well but day by day the performance of the battery is deteriorating.
Iphone 6 captures better image with its 8 MO camera rather than the 21 MP of this junk.
Guys - Better safe then sorry. Stay away from the Xperia or for that matter any other Sony product.

Finally got the latest update here in the Philippines. Fast update compared to the other brands. This phone really the best. Its been 9 months since I bought it and never put any screen protector in it. I just insert it in my pocket along with my coins(rarely). It never had any crack nor scratch! I am still amazed while other devices get scratches easily.. Maybe i got lucky that i bought the perfect batch of this device.
Beakie, 03 Aug 2015Sony Canada refused to repair my flap. Under warranty.Sony philippines will replace the flap if under warranty, if not under warranty they will still repair it but u have to pay 4$ USD.
This is a very good phone I have had it for about 6 months now and it has been very nice for me I previously had the Xperia z2 and I did not like it at all although it was a good phone but it had two major issues the overheating problem and the weak chassis. What I love most about it is the compact size I don't see any performance related compromises made the because of the size. I have had it in a regular rubber case since I got it and I have dropped it a few times and it never showed an issue I guess with the last phones like all the Xperia phones right now you have to be a little bit careful. What was really standing out as a tough phone from Sony was the Xperia acro s may it rest in peace.
I have used Sony phones for 6 years now, and ofcourse, they are now in a much better place compared to their rivals.
This phone is great, I've had it for almost 5 months now and.it's been great.
My previous phone was a z Z2, it was actually good but had the heating issue as well as -what turned out to be a deal breaker for.me
