7 solid months with this phone. Im currently dealing with the "sudden death" issue since last week. I've already exhausted all software repair available to an end user. Still died a while ago after flashing .726 firmware. But im still hoping the next update 5.1 will fix it.

Regarding major aspects like Display,Camera,Heating Issue etc.
Please help me guys...
norwin, 12 Jul 2015i bought mine lst oct 2014. first the swipe down began to malfunction so hard for me to erase... moreHave the same problem, i think they call it "sudden death". Sent my unit to the service center and until now, still no news on its repair. Apparently this has been happening quite a lot of times to other users of this phone. I had my z3c for only 3months. Booo Sony!!!
faz, 26 Jun 2015I hav z3 compact, from 1 month b4 suddenly it's getting swith off. This occurring many times, ... moreI feel for you, have the same problem with my z3c. Extremely disappointed with Sony...
william, 28 Jun 2015I want to buy this but i read there is a lot of sudden death/brick z3c. Anyone experience this... moreYeah, had this problem with a z3c i bought last april, it suddenly "died" last june. the phone is still with Sony service center at the moment. Im extremely disappointed with Sony. Ive read a lot of stuff on forums that this has been happening quite a lot.
i bought mine lst oct 2014.
first the swipe down began to malfunction so hard for me to erase some notification you have to auto rotate the screen to do it,and when its on auto rotate mode i have to shake the phone at 8.0 magnitude to go to my desired angle sometimes i need to do some aftershocks.2nd it restart on its own and 3rd wala na, ayaw na nyang gumana!!!(not functioning anymore).
By the way i am a sony user since 1996 thats why im very disappointed with sony, maybe because it is chinese made and now start to switch to other brand.
My one is intact and beautiful as ever, just put a cheap case and your fraid to crack the z3 is gone...the magnetic charger is a great idea!
dropped mine for almost 5 times already with heights above 5 feet. just had dents on the plastic parts but no scratches/cracks on both front and back glass. i can say that those people crying about their phone screen getting cracks are just urban legends. i salute to sony for making such a sturdy phone. i havent put on tempered glass yet. if you have doubts buying this phone then buy it now without hesitation. im planing to root this and install custom rom to achieve true "2-days battery life" on average to heavy usage
Let go this crap with dropping and cracking screen. I have dropped mine during a ride with a bike, from about a meter high, and it only got a few dents in the plastic frame!
Rae13, 08 Jul 2015Anyone using z3 compact in the Philippines? I read some negative reviews about it really isn't... moreIm in Indonesia, my Z3c screen shattered when it dropped from 1m. I thought it was shatter-proof....too expensive phone for low glass quality
Excellent battery life. Excellent camera, easily beating HTCs flagships. And up there with the iPhone and Galaxy. Unlike other compact phones this keeps the high performance and specs of its bigger brother. Haven't noticed any lag whatsoever after 3 months of intense use. The phone is quick, you'll be surprised and no need to change the stock keyboard it's as good as any available. Baked in software is annoying but root to get rid. Listening to music is a decent experience even with the freebie in ear phones provided, if not as loud as some would like or indeed compared to my old HTC One M7. It's waterproof too. The screen specs isn't up there with some phones however it's barely noticeable. I'm very happy with this phone however here's some negatives. The camera when filming video will automatically shut down in hot conditions. One can't say the build quality is poor afterall it's waterproof. However the plastics and glass build makes it feel very fragile compared to the HTC Ones superior metal body. If using a plug in charger the opening seems to get less secure with time, it will still see the phone waterproof however you'll find you're pushing it harder back into its socket compared to when it was new out of the box. That said a wireless charger is available cheaply online that would see you only needing to open it up for the memory card. If only Sony would start using metal for the phones body. And it didn't heat up in hot conditions when videoing. Until then this gets 8.5 out of 10 from me.
Best phone I have ever had. No laggs, lovely design, I like that it's small compared to Z3, great performance, beautiful images even in low light, sound is great also. Only minus is sony app for music, a.k.a walkman.
Excellent phone, JUST NEVER DROP IT, NOT EVEN FROM 30CM:Result?= THE SCREEN WILLLLL CRACK - PERIOD. TO fix= half the price of the damn phone: no coverage on warranty!!!So, by all means go and buy this excellent phone and with it a proper protective cover!
