I was in the list of first few buyers paid 45k and for your kind information my phone was self cracked and then I went service center but they refused to service it as this was looking like little scratch.
LaSt month front screen somehow started pumping(I was able to press screen inside phone like that) again i went service center and this time without any question they replaced my front screen also small rear crack gone.
so what I ll suggest everyone that just don't buy any Sony phones also its March and we don't know when they will roll out android L update every other brand enjoying this and please don't tell rolling this updates takes time as this is for every brand right.
I see no future for Sony in smartphone market they're not upto the mark for top notch smartphones.
Unfortunately m a Sony smartphone user and very much disappointed with service services.
Better go for iPhone that won't take you to service center within first week of buy trust me.
itsme, 07 Mar 2015dream phone but only thing holding me back from buying this is the fear of "self cracking... moreoh come on....
the cracking glass is a hoax created by people who drop their phones roughly and want sony to replace their phones under wareanty because the glass supposedly self cracked.
I would like to buy it but here in Thailand this phone is even more expensive than the flagship S5, and has no resell value. No wonder i still haven't see someone with a Z3 compact or Z3.
Even if it is probably a good phone Sony should be more realistic with its pricing.
i want to get either z3 or z3 compact. so lil bit confuse here..what should i get ?? and y should i bought it ? :)
dream phone but only thing holding me back from buying this is the fear of "self cracking" glass panels.
I have this phone and I love it. Far and away the best out of 8 different models I've owned. Fast as blazes, stunning display, perfectly sized for one-handed use, and a battery that just won't die. Sony is doing absolute magic with their screen drivers that bring all images to life.
The is a major fault with this device - the magnetic charging point comes away from the phone after a few months of usage, leaving it unchargeable (without using the fiddly port) and exposed to dust and water.
I had my Z3 compact for 2 months and the rear panel cracked, for no reason. The phone was never dropped. It just cracked. I am so disappointed. This phone is such a great phone but this cracking issue does not make the phone worth while.
best service and best sellphone but accessories not available in indore [m.p] market.

It costs next to nothing and should be readily available in most shops that sell phones/accessories.
boriseto, 01 Mar 2015I use airdroid for wireless transfer on Linux. Just use the browser for it. ;)Yeah, there are quite a few options to do it wireless, but most of them are Internet / cloud based. I'd rather use a cable or bluetooth rather than giving personal files to a random company (and the NSA, so easily).
Awesome - minus loudspeaker, headphone music sound and loudness and vibrate. Best small phone out there

I've been using this phone for about a month now, bought it on 31st Jan to replace my broken Nexus 4. So far it's doing great! I bought magnetic charging cable online for about USD 10 since I don't want to keep opening and closing the protective flap. it's just too bothersome. Never dropped the phone (hopefully will never do), but I use nilkin frosted case to address the slipperiness. yes it's a slippery phone, even more than my old Nexus 4. but it's sexy as hell, great size for one handed usage. It's almost stock android, but came with preloaded sony apps which most of them are useless (I only use Walkman media player, sony's official music service - free streaming and download, and sony's photo gallery and camera app). Battery life is superb! Previously with my Nexus 4 I can only get maximum 3 hours screen on time, 12 hours light to medium usage (I dont play games), and brightness set at 40%-ish at all time. With Z3 Compact, I get AT LEAST 4 hours screen on time, over 15 hours medium-heavy usage, with my screen brightness set at 80% at all time. I don't use Google Now on both phones, but I keep the ok google hotword detection on and location settings at battery saving. With Z3 compact, I never leave house with external battery pack or powerbank anymore. never need it anymore. Performance is blazing fast across the UI, never found any hiccup or apps force closing except for social media PATH 3 or 4 force closes in a single month, but maybe that's because bugs in the app, im not really sure.
Got this phone four days ago, and I have to say it's awesome.
Build quality is good, and feels good in my hand, weight is just spot on. screen is sharp and vivid. Registers touch very well, no need to swipe and tap many times for it to respond.
First Android phone for me (old was REALLY old Nokia Symbian phone, so no comparing these two). Despite that i got the hang of things quickly. OS is good looking and fast, was easy to customize also.
Settings are clear and easy to setup, Stamina mode really does what it says, battery life is amazing on this phone.
Web browsing is also fast, though I'm yet to test it with 4G speeds, will be even more enjoyable.
Camera I haven't tested yet, waiting for the back protecting film so I can peel of the factory plastic.. :P
this is the best phone I ever owned . one reason being is the battery life is amazing . another reason it is SOLID and water proof.
another reason the ease of use .
to be better with z4 compact please sony do not make it bigger . you can make the screen few millimeters bigger which will be nice but size wise it is the best.
all other phones can not compare to its battery usage and that's why I think this is the best phone
