I'm looking for a new phone. I found a Z1 compact at EUR 125 cheaper than Z3 compact. Can anyone tell me if the 'upgrades' for Z3 compact is worth the money? Should I go for Z1 compact or Z3 compact, given the price difference?
ctrang, 24 Mar 2015how about z3c sound? many people say it not good. I'd say it's average...but little better than z1c
Bcs the speaker position is in the front in z3c compared to side on the z1c,so users may get better sound on z3c
look here for speaker comaprison

and THERE IS NO CRACKING ISSUE.I MOVED FROM IPHONE 5C TO Z3C AND sony is amazing.i am really surprised that sony isnt the top smartphone vendor.and yeah,it doesn't crack at all.these are baseless rumors.
i also realised that the crack phone comments increased after s6 release.this is very unusual and suspicion arousing..... so i can infer that its sammy agents at work trying to create interest for the bad s6.
Ive had mine for about 6 days and from day 1 the waterproof port cover for the sim card pops open slightly on its own. it does this within 20minutes almost every time even if its just sat on the side. apart from that the phone seems great (well except its having trouble connecting to wifi networks but i think i can solve that) Even so i think i might replace it with an S4 MINI which i know is reliable.
im using this phone since 3 months...this phone really have self cracking issue...i know coz i paid for that.. believe me...rest phone is awesome
Haidar, 23 Mar 2015Hi guys,
i have Note 4, but i may sell it coz i love to have a stonger battery. My Note ca... moreI have the Z3 Compact and it's been 2 month already, I consider myself a heavy user with over 5 hours of screen-on time daily... Most of the time my Z3 Compact delivers that and more... but the most I've got from it has been a little over 7 hours... All of this with Stamina OFF...
I think the only way to achieve close to 9 hours is to only do a single activity... such as web browsing... but when you mix it with music playback, games, chats, etc... it goes down quicker...
I wouldn't trade the Note 4 for the Z3 Compact, but I do like compact devices more... so I also wouln't trade my Z3 Compact for a Note 4 :)
First of all, everything about this device is just incredible and fantastic. Having coming to it from iPhone 5s/Samsung S4/htc m8, i can easy tell its the best in class for its performance and battery life. Having passed thru 3 months and 15 days, the only fault which affected me badly was the scratches on rear camera. To clarify, i used a silicon cover from day 1 of purchase, even the front screen protector is intact. Never fell from pocket, nor any scratchable item was placed ever in the same pocket. Anyways will soon check out what is the charge for changing it.

My Note ca... moreHi all, I'm a very glad user of the Z3 compact, I used it all day: waze, email, calls, messanging, tethering, etc. and from the day a buyed (2 months ago) and I daily charged at night, only one time i need it to charged in the middle of the day. I hope it helps.
i have Note 4, but i may sell it coz i love to have a stonger battery. My Note can stay max 4 hours screen.. i saw a lot of users having up to 9 screen time on their Xperia devices.
right now, i am hesitated between the Z3 & the Z3 compact.. the compact version has a better battery, but i love big screen...
do you think the battery of Z3 is powerful? and is it really true that it could reach 8 or 9 screen time?

My z3c screen cracked in my pocket the day after I got it.Sony dare not admit there is a fault as would cost them loads!
