I have checked on my PC, nothing wrong with the files.
Plsanswer, 06 Apr 2015i am so very confused right now bout what should i buy. LG g3, xperia z3c or asus 2?????? plss... moreI am not loyal to any brand other than what suits me at the time I decide to purchase a new phone. If you are going for a contract phone I would sit back for a month or so because at this moment there are a lot of new phones on the market like HTC one m9 with the new 64bit chip and samsung galaxy s6. Both are very powerful. If your buying one the nexus 6 is a beast and nexus are always reasonably priced with a lot to offer. Out of the three you mentioned I would not go for LGG3 because most of the power is used for the screen which makes it heat up fast and the battery is the worst of the three. I preferred the LGG2 than the G3 which performs better in benchmark tests. Sony z3c suits me because battery speed and size of the phone. Hope this helps
KCU, 06 Apr 2015Really? How about the battery life of this phone? The heating issue? The battery life is very good. I'm a real heavy user with phones and compared to my old samsung galaxy s4 my iPhone 5s and my wife's samsung s5 the z3 compact gets through about a day and half. The battery is better than any smartphone I've owned or any my friends and family own. As for heating issues I have not experienced any major problems but I have with other phones. I think heating problem's are down to the type of user. I know my wife's samsung galaxy s5 is always hot but it looks to me that she is having a problem with the software lollipop and she never shuts down apps running in the background. If you run lots of apps and forget to shut them down any processor will start over working and heat up. With any smartphone I've always put a screen protector and a case on it and never had issues with screens cracking.
i am so very confused right now bout what should i buy. LG g3, xperia z3c or asus 2?????? plss share ur feedback bout this phone is cracking issue in this phone is real???
About the cracking, I have owned the z3c for months and worried about the screen from day one until last week when my daughter got hold of the phone and threw it onto my tiled kitchen flaw. After inspection I found no signs of damage at all. Yes I had a ringke fusion case but still my daughter threw the phone hard so I don't see how these phones are supposedly so fragile. After reading idiots comments on other sites on how their phones just fell apart in their hands and even reading about one idiot who had supposedly broken the screen three times from 2 foot It made me paranoid to use my phone. I now believe a lot of the people are just trolling through sites making up sh*t either they have broken it through doing something stupid or trying to make sony have a bad reputation because they want other brands to look better. There will always be some badly made phones that do suffer faults when being made but that will be a minority.
nick, 29 Mar 2015Are the rumors about the easily cracked screen and glass back actually true? How long will the... moreMy phone lassted less than a week before it got a small crack in it... 4 Months later ad the phone is useless with acrack across the screen and the touch screen wont respond. Buying this phone counts among the worst decision Ive ever made.
So I bought a Z3C three weeks ago and had to return it because headphone jack broke. The phone excellent and I'm hesitant to buy it again because the same problem happened to my friend. Did anyone else have the same problem?
Do not install lollipop on z3 compact. Battery drains much faster and the phone is always warm, even with minimal tasks such as browsing internet... I recommend staying in KitKat. Will be reverting. Wasted my time with lollipop.
I've had this phone for over 6 months and it has worked very well. It works very smooth. Battery life last forever. I haven't had any problems with the front or rear glass cracking. I have it in a slim hard plastic case which i bought from eBay for like $4. I've dropped it multiple times, including on cement, hardwood, and ceramic tile.
The back does get noticeably warm when running more processor heavy apps, but so far this hasn't damaged the phone.
I'm running KitKat and probably not going to update to Lollipop 5.0. I read that this OS has a RAM memory leak problem which may get fixed in the 5.1.1 version. I hope Sony updates it to 5.1.1. Has anyone who is running lollipop noticed this memory leak?
The phone is water proof, and I wash it under running water regularly without any problems.
The one major flaw for me is that it doesn't support T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling. This has to be baked into the OS by Sony or Google, according to T-Mobile. My last phone had that and I really miss that feature.
