The phone has a magnetic charger flaw from where water entered and my camera, gps etc stopped working. Believe me I am going through nightmare experience with service center. They do not care for their customers. You will wait for min 15 days for reasons like no parts etc. I am very very very disappointed with Sony. I was loyal customer but not anymore. Apart from product having flaws the service experience is worst ever. This is my third phone from Sony in the last four months, one and half months I was running around service center for my C3 Dual and Z3 compact. The resolution time is very long when its Sony. Let me know if Apple is a good choice . I hope there are no support issues like I am facing with Sony.
AnonD-366343, 26 May 2015Which one is better z2 or z3 compact tell me the only real useri never use z2 actually. i'm using z3 compact for 6 month now. great battery life, great performance, great camera. no issues at all. as a z3c user i strongly recommend you to buy this phone

Looks is so boring...but i like small phone and hope next Zcompact will be attractive like a small S6 Edge.
I had Xperia Sola, now using Z3C about 7 days already. Works pretty well, but one issue. Nano sim flap pops up maybe 1 millimeters. Maybe send to warranty. They promised to solve this issue for free.
Don't waste your money!!!
I bought this phone and a month later a bought a magnetic charger to avoid being opening the piece of plastic that cover the regular charging port every time that I need to charge the phone. The result is that after 3 or 4 charges the magnetic port start to fell apart from the phone, of course now is not water proof. Long story short, I have sent the phone back to Sony three time already to be repaired because of the same issue and Sony do not want to refund me my money, even when obviously the phone has a design defect. I'm very disappointed with Sony and the quality of this product. another point is that the phone do not work as fast as they said and do not respond correctly when you have more than five app in the background.
I'm IT so I now a little of how OS should work.
I hope this help others!!!!
Excellent phone. The best I ever have so far. Came from battery sucking iphone5. Battery life of this phone rocks! Camera very speedy. Picture qality superb. Really fast phone. Real good buy. More power to Sony!
Hello Z3C users,
Could you please post here your phone's production week number here? It's because I am planning to buy this phone by next week and I want to know what production number should I look for to avoid the "sudden death" issue experienced by some of the Z3C users. https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z3-Compact/Sudden-Death-of-Sony-xperia-Z3-Compact/td-p/877345
By the way, to determine the week production number, just dial this *#*#7378423#*#*.
According to the forum,below's week production number are most likely the faulty one:

Listening to music on the built-in speakers is unbearable on most (if not all) smartphones. These speakers are not capable of producing quality audio on a relatively broad frequency spectrum (as required for music, but not for human speech).

Please do not tell people not to buy sony phones because of your bad experience. I think it is normal for the parts to arrive more than a month because there are a very few sony mobile user here in the phiippines. If you break a samsung phone they can provide parts immediately because apparently it is the top selling brand of phone in the country(kahit sa tabi tabi puwede mong paayos).But apparently I am loving my xperia z3c and show off its beauty to my friends and I love beating their samsung phones in terms of camera, screen, waterproof and performance. Lastly, it feels good to be uniQue.

This phone is by far the best phone that I ever had since the the beginning of smartphones era. Great battery life, awesome performance, beautiful design, good camera (not the best though). I paid more than 500 dollars for it but it definitely worth every cent I spent.

The service center in Indonesia is very very bad!!!
The service center only gives promises like "Your phone will be taken into repair in a minimum of 2 weeks and maximum of 2 months", and reasons such as late sparepart delivery, or uncertain repair period. A lot of users had to wait more than the promised repair period such as 2 months, 3 or even 4 months. And a lot of them are currently left wondering about their devices' status for months. Also some users had to have their devices replaced fully but not like their previous device (such as different device colour than the previous device they bought), and this is of course after a lengthy repair progress too. And some also has considered "not to buy XPERIA anymore".
