I don't think I understood your question completely... I'll try to explain anyway:
The Z3 Compact has a plastic frame and a glass back and front... the Z3 on the other hand has a metal frame and also glass back and front. Sony ditched the Anti Shatter Film that came preinstalled on the screen of older units (and I used to love that, but it was prone to scratches). Inspite the plastic-glass construction, the device feels very solid and robust, and mine has survived a couple of drops to hard floor (with a Ringke Fusion Case).
The battery for MY PERSONAL USE last around 6~7 hours of Screen-On Time, this is a mixture of web browsing, some gaming, taking pictures, listening to music (mostly over Bluetooth) and so on.... My phone never dies on a single day, I always reach home with battery left, even when using heavily. I have activated Google Now, Lifelog (with location reporting), whatsapp, FB Messenger, Hangouts, 3 emails accounts through Gmail app, Google Inbox, Google Keep, LinkedIn, and a couple of games that notifies me of online feedback... everything else does not use much online connection, though I did uninstalled Facebook App (I only access it through Chrome).
I almost never use Stamina mode.

Batterylife is 2 days. The only downfall is in deed the glass backpanel wich had broken over night about a month ago. Sony recognised the problem and i got a new one :) so yes it's true about the back panel but Sony knows of it so you dont losse youre warrenty
I cannot wait to own one of these when my contract comes around again in a couple of months, i've done my homework and these phones are superb
I am appealing to bloggers not to comment negative and sowing false review. I know you are not owning a z3 compact. It's either you are apple or Samsung fanatics.. Pls leave this site. You're not helping..
I got this phone last week. And I'm having some concerns with the battery life and we after some advice. In the battery settings with the screen on ccomponent, it says when I've got the wifi on, il get 7 hours (which is what i expected) of the screen been on out of a 100% charged battery. But only 4 hours, if that with just standard 3G / 4G which I think is pretty crap. Now snapchat has started using 60% of my battery when the tally of minutes of me using it is only 3? Just wondering what other people are getting out of their screen life
Are the rumors about the easily cracked screen and glass back actually true? How long will the battery last without having it changed? Plan to keep a phone for 3years or more. Would appreciate advice from people who actually own a sony z3 compact D5803. Thanks
where is the lollipop
i am using this phone, nice phone, exclusive hands on, easy to handling
Thinking of buying this phone but im worried about the glass cracking, some people are saying it cracks for no reason so im wondering if a screen protector would even work. Also the non removable battery. Is there a hard reset button or combination if the phone freezes? Would really appreciate some advice. Thanks

Lots of great features but shame the phone as god awful. What's the use in having a great phone with a screen that cracks within 3 days.... Menus are a minefield to navigate. Loce the battery life, hate the rest.
yoney, 27 Mar 2015I respect your opinion too,still as u said facts are facts so here it goes again 1."LOL... moreCool, I'm not going to continue, but rather thanks you for defending the Z1c so much, I think it will be a no brainer to get that one for my wife... Enjoy
DQ, 27 Mar 2015LOL, you are seriously taking SHEM's video as your proof that battery life is not truly improv... moreI respect your opinion too,still as u said facts are facts
so here it goes again
1."LOL, you are seriously taking SHEM's video as your proof that battery life is not truly improved???"...no i'm not taking SHEM's video seriously but still he is right to my opinion...
2."Please go and see professional reviews and actual test performed on both devices"...hah i don't need to bcs i already used two of them and i know what i'm saying
3."GSMArena have an Endurance rating of 101hr vs 65hr"...that is standby time not On Screen Time,which i checked myself by running battery test with my friend's z3c
and surprisingly z1c survived around 10 min more...
4."Again, most people will NOT root"... u can't be too sure,rooting is easy now a days
5."I don't get the "joke"... My phone charges pretty fast"...did i say z3 or z3c didn't charge fast,all i said is that quick charge 2.0 is available on other devices too and also it's an integreated feature from S800(check qualcomm website)
it may looks stupid discussion to u but fun for me
again as i said before the difference in specification not worth that much bucks
my friend is using z3c for more than 3 months now and we exchanged our phone for few weeks..
and yeah both devices are great no doubt..
end of discussion for me but u can go on

Please go and see professional reviews and actual test performed on both devices... the Z3C is a lot better than the Z1C on battery life. Even here on GSMArena have an Endurance rating of 101hr vs 65hr.
SHEM only did a 30 minute test on a device that was probably brand new and not even calibrated by some battery cycles, he then extrapolated the results to ASSUME what would be the battery life...
You really got me thinking that you knew about your stuff, anyway I still stand behind my post. Both devices are really good, and each of us are entitled to our own opinions, but facts are FACTS.

1."300 mAh coupled with the new display, gives the Z3 Compact around 40% more batte... moreI respect your opinion and if you read my first post I commented about both pros and cons vs the Z1c...
1. The battery is vastly improved that is a FACT.
2. The slightly less ppi will not be noticeable under normal conditions, unless you look at it extremely close and next to each other.
3. Again, most people will NOT root...
4. I don't get the "joke"... My phone charges pretty fast.
This is a really stupid discussion, I explained in my first post my opinion and if the person looking for one of these devices, finds its features useful, then just get it, if not get the older one... I even stated that I am going to get the Z1c for my wife... But for me the difference are worth it...
What is really sad is that you think you are right over my Opinion... And I've used both devices... At the end he/she can't go wrong with either... both devices are great IMO
self craking issues, it means you've buy the fake z3c
buy it on official sony store then you'll suffer no craked screen
khule, 26 Mar 2015My z3 compact back glass just cracked I don't even know what caused it it didn't fall or anyth... moreEeehhh!!!
Please your Not even a true SONY user based on your gibberish/poor story telling! haha
