Anonymous, 19 May 2015z3 compact. trust me. i'm using this phone for about 6 month now I am afraid of several reports about the cracking issue of its glass exterior???
hello there..please advise what to choose..I can't really decide over this phone or z1 compact..
Z1 compact is great phone but Z3 compact is even better (I believe)..The price difference is about $80-$100..I am thinking if it is worth it...my last phone was xperia tx but I lost it.

I have compared it to my s6 edge and you are correct the s6 does have in my opinion the better camera on any mobile device but please don't just take my word for it if you get a chance do compare your self. I have never had any problems with the z3c regarding cracking bits dropping off or lag either and i have kids that tend to get a hold of all my devices.

Ofcourse it is not a... moreOn the other hand, I have using my Z3C since late January and I bought a third party Magnetic Charger adapter (from Magnector, 3 of the first version and 2 of the new one) and I have charge my phone EVERY SINGLE DAY with them without the port getting loose. I still take my Z3C to the shower, pool and rain and it still remains waterproof.
In my experience the phone does not lag even with many apps opened... the only lagging apps for me has been Emulators that do not go well with Snapdragon... And the Camera has been superb, I have compared it extensively with a Nexus 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, 6+, Galaxy S5 and S5 Mini... and the Z3C has absolutely nothing to envy from them, in fact, the Z3C best them all in low light photography (using High Sensitivity ISO or Manual settings) and the only android phone I think is better all around regarding the camera is the Galaxy S6, but I haven't compared it first hand.
Drape, 16 May 2015I never put any screen protector or cover in this device because it will only spoil the premiu... morehi! im also from the philippines. where did you buy your z3 compact? do you think its safe to buy from online gadget stores? im a bit hesitant to buy from online stores but the price point is really tempting
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

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).
