I'm really disapointed on the backside on this phnoe, i bought it 3 day's later the entire backside cracked, I had the phone on the table and when i toke it, the entire backside was broke. I went to the store i bought it, I got the answer, we can send it to sony however they will tell you this is a dropinjury, but i havent dropped it and there are no dropmarks on the phone, so Im really disapointed, have heard several that have problems with the glas on both front and the backside, a BIG minus from me
Alex, 17 May 2015I'm very disappointed with this phone. Do not work as fast as Sony said and the phone will lac... moreThat is why Sony does not manufacture Magnetic charging cables my friend. Ofcourse it is not a part of the warranty because you used unofficial charger.It is also advertised to use the magnetic charging dock. Next time you own an expensive device buy the official accessories than buying the cheaper version.
I'm very disappointed with this phone. Do not work as fast as Sony said and the phone will lack when you have like 5 app running at the same time, the quality of the camera is nothing extraordinary assuming that has 20 MP. But the worst of all is that if you used the Magnetic port to charge the phone after do it few time the port will dis-attach of the phone. This port is attached to the phone only with glue and apparently a very bad quality glue. Of course if that happen you can not used the phone with water.
To make things worst I have sent the phone 3 time to sony support for repair and the problem persist, even when is clearly a defect of the phone Sony do not want to give my money back in other words they told me that the only thing they can do is to repair my phone until the warranty expire.
I do not recommend this phone to anyone... do not waste your money!!!!!!
A very disappointed custmoner.
Anonymous, 17 May 2015Z3 compact or galaxy s6?I have got both s6 edge and Sony z3c. For the price you can't go wrong with the z3c the battery is the best out there and the phone will handle every thing you can throw at it with next to no lag. I had compared the phone to my iPhone 5s my wife's s5 and my new s6 edge and I'm still well impressed. The s6 edge is in a different league for display, camera and hardware and you would definitely see the difference if you went into store and looked at both devices yourself. The z3c is half the price and still holds its own against all top phones.
Anonymous, 17 May 2015Z3 compact or galaxy s6?Z3 compact if you want a super smartphone in a small form and one handed usage (for busy people) also it has a microsd card expansion plus a 2 to 3 days battery life.. Galaxy s6 if you want a popular and expensive smartphone to boast with your friends(for social status).

In my experience it can withstand high pressure and temperature.. Yes you can put it on the pocket due to its small form
Hey guys I'm about to get this awesome phone but something is keeping me from buying it the self cracking thing... Can the phone stand a lot of heat? Can I keep it in my pocket? BTW I live in the Philippines I need some answers please :-)
Drape, 16 May 2015I never put any screen protector or cover in this device because it will only spoil the premiu... moreGood comment I feel the same with my z3c it's a well made phone with a really good battery plus at its price point I don't think there's any device that can match it.
I never put any screen protector or cover in this device because it will only spoil the premium feel and look of this device :) I only purchased a cheap pouch for this device and up until now it has no scratches nor crack. I experienced several light bumps and occasional hard bumps already and I would say it is not that fragile as some hypocrites say. To be honest I nearly brough LG G3 or Galaxy s5 over z3c after I saw some reviews about this device having self cracking issues and crappy camera. In my experience I doubt that this device would crack under high temperature (It reaches 60 degrees celsius after lollipop update when I am playing high graphics games) or heavy pressure (I put the device in my thigh jeans when going outside and put it under my pillow at night). As for the camera, at first I am disappointed with the images captured by the camera but after I set the camera in the 20mp in manual mode (it is 8mp in default) it can now take superb images comparable to an iphone and the BEST! photo under good lighting condition. Super vivid and Xreality image enhancement is amazing especially if you are wathcing HD movies, all of the companies should try this rather than joining the qhd bandwagon seriously who needs super sharp screen making calls or texting? Sony made the right move here by giving the user a control if he/she wants to have super saturated video/images or not. Highly recommended Device!
maged, 15 May 2015Is lollipop upgrade is good for this device?The lollipop update in this device gave it the ability to move apps to micro sd card easily. The downside is while playing high graphics game or using intensive application this device heats up rapidly in an uncomfortable level (40 to 60 degrees celsius). Also, many preferred the serious looking theme in kitkat than the childish theme in the lollipop(of course it depends on your preferences). You may not want to update to lollipop YET because of the heating issues note that even other high end device have this issue.
Its the only phone with a screen that have less that 5 inches with a camera and a processor of a flagship. And not only that, it have a lot of features like waterproof, stereo speakers (good quality), radio Fm, excelent Battery, Ect.. Only have some troubles: You cant move the apps to the SD card (kit kat), If you use it much heated, doesnt have infrared (for the TV), the sound of the speakers its a little low that the normal but compensates by having front speakers. But it's better that you buy a cover to protect the back and the screen from schatches
maged, 15 May 2015Is lollipop upgrade is good for this device?I've had no issues with it. I know others claimed to have problems with the battery but that only seemed to be when Sony first released lollipop.
