MY Z3 compact model for the last few days ringing tone not hearing and embarrassing situation that I fact that my contact assume that I don't pick up and some callers say that they don't hear the ringing tone too while calling. Any solutions or I take the phone to SONY centre. ??
I have had this phone for almost 2 years now and love it. Had no issues and it's still fast even with a ton of apps on it. I took good care of it and made sure to do "housekeeping" on it every now and then but cleaning up apps I didn't use and making sure I kept the software updated. I am almost done with this cell contract and I will be getting the Z5 Compact in 4 months. Keep it up Sony!

SONYnoMORE, 26 Oct 2016been using sony mobile phones for 5 years and this unit has been the worst ever!!..very annoyi... moreIt's because your display's digitzer stopped working. Digitizer is a layer over the LCD display which senses the touch and converts it to a digital signal. It's a well known problem of Sony Xperia Z3 compact devices and thousands of people have already complained about the same. It generally starts after 1 year of usage. First you face difficulty in pulling down the notification bar in home screen. Then you loose sensitivity of back and home buttons at the bottom. After that it spreads like a cancer and disables the entire screen.
There is only one way to get rid of this. Change your display. If warranty is still valid, you are lucky. Otherwise you have to pay almost half of the phone's cost to Sony to get it repaired. But if you are in Chennai, you can get it done within 4000 Rs. There are many shops in Ritchie street, Mount road who will replace it with a good quality after market display unit and it will come with 100 days of seller warranty. I got it repaired there and it's still working fine after 4 months.
been using sony mobile phones for 5 years and this unit has been the worst ever!!..very annoying and disappointed,!...home button, back button, drop down screen not working anymore!..any recall sony manufacturer.???
The worst phone I had ever... In 22 months it was failed 2 times the touch sensor, and once the screen and twice the back sealing unglued... Its so unprofessional form SONY brand... Before this phone i had 4 sony phones, but this one was the last one... If you have is, sell it quickly!
Sony doesn't really care to this phone, all sorts of problem starts due to recent upgrade!
i thinks its intention for you to change your phone! piece of advice choose another brand!
I 've been using this phone for last 2 years. It was the best till my update to android 6. Then back button stopped working. Now, this spreading like cancer many spots stopped working.
Tip: activate glove mode from settings>display
it may help a bit.
Touch screen starting to fail after 21 months gentle use. Suspect it's a hardware issue rather than the recent update. V disappointed. Android backup/restore sucks compared with IoS - so many settings not included in backup. Back to Apple for me.
This is just a temporary solution. The reason you are not able to open the notification bar is that your digitalizer (active screen) is on its way to total breakdown, top part has become non-responsive! The app just moves the 'activation' to another part of the screen. Soon your back-button will fail, then slowly rest of the screen!! Been there, changed phone!!
