This is great phone! The only drawbacks I faced are:
1) We have to take out cover from side while charging. There is high chance of breaking the cover.
2) The set is too smooth(no grip at all), I myself dropped a couple of times.
3) The screen glass is not Cornig-gorilla glass, so it is compulsory to protect yourself.
4) The UHD movie recording makes the device very hot.
5) Sometimes, while in pocket, it automatically starts dialing numbers by opening emergency dialer.
Anyway, there drawbacks are minor as compared to the features it provides.
The main drawbak i c in this phone is sound quality. Not tht grt. and the spkr sound not gud enough. So if u r music lovr dont thnk this will be gud option. Anyone agree with this?
I had this phone for almost 3months. I realized that the camera sometimes takes picture even though in lock mode. Then i thought maybe i accidentally press on the shutter botton, but i guess not. The next thing i know there are pictures of ramdom shots in my gallery.Does anybody have the same problem?
try, 20 May 2015 what about your opinion on z3v ? which is better ? z3c , z3v or z2 ?Well the Z3v is made for the Verizon store and it is a CDMA device (with some GSM bands)...
The advantages are thet the Z3v has 32GB of internal memory, and the slightly faster processor, and I think that it has MHL3 vs MHL2...
The other difference is that it has Wireless Qi charging instead of the magnetic port (which I prefer) so this goes down to personal preferences...
I think this should only be an option if you have Verizon
Guys I have recently bought this device. before upgrading to Lollipop it was fine but after updating to lollipop sound settings only applicable to Walkman App. I use heavily Airtel's Wync Music app, sound quality sucks really.
Any solution for this problem?

IMO, the only visible difference between the two is the screen size ratio and other than that, are just small updates and will still be okay to settle with z1c that is much cheaper.
Anonymous, 19 May 2015I am afraid of several reports about the cracking issue of its glass exterior???Just today I dropped my z3c in a concrete floor about 5 meters high. Note that I am hate putting screen protector in my device thus, the only protection it has is a cheap pouch.I thought that my device would crack but that did not happen. It does not have any scratches either. Self cracking issue or the issue about this device easily crack is just a lie or the owners might have defective device. Thus, it is important that if you will buy an expensive device you should take your time inspecting the device. In my opinion those owner complaining about cracking issue did not inspect their device thoroughly before buying note that even a smallest crack can progress into a big crack. I myself nearly brought a device that has very very small dent/crack in the back side luckily I took my time inspecting it before buying it.
Roni, 18 May 2015hi! im also from the philippines. where did you buy your z3 compact? do you think its safe to ... moreHello there, I bought my z3c in hotgadgets store here in the Philippines(search it in the internet) unlike the other online store it has a physical shop. Be sure to inspect the phone really carefully because I tried to buy in the other store and found out that there is a very very small crack in the back side of the device and you wont easily notice it thus, be sure to take your time inspecting the device.Be careful when buying in those online store because they do not offer official sony warranty just a store warranty.

mk7, 19 May 2015is z2 better or z3c ?I think they are both on par...
The main difference will be if you like big screen/phones or compact phones...
The screen of the Z2 is a bit more accurate, but the one on the Z3 Compact is very pleasant when you get use to it... I think the Z3C is more comfortable to hold and the front facing speakers is better place so you don't cover them when you hold it in landscape (but the ones on the Z2 looks better IMO)
Just get the Z3C if you want a small device or the Z2 if you want a big one.
