Little worried about its delicacy now! Will it be ok just to stick tempered glass protector on both front and back ?

Varun4130, 01 Feb 2015I have been looking through the reviews of z3 compact for couple of weeks and got to know that... moreCommon, if something works for one person, it doesn't necessary works for other, you need to go to shop, and check the phone! How it feels, how it looks, then you will know, will this works for you!
When I checked phones, I checked many models, but they always missed something, somewhere screen is crap, somewhere battery for one day, somewhere it feels crappy.
Why I picked Sony Z3 Compact? Mainly, battery, secondly it's specs and size, it's so small!
Also, a lot of thing about phone, can be found on forums, especially xda forum, used for tweaking mine phone :)

Glass doesn't just break on its own and the temperature differential from it heating up isn't enough to break it. More often than not, people claiming phones breaking for no reasons are full of it.. Either they've dropped it harder than they admit or do stupid things like keep the phone in their back pocket.
Varun4130, 01 Feb 2015I have been looking through the reviews of z3 compact for couple of weeks and got to know that... moreHi, the Lime version is for the Z1 Compact. the Z3 Compact is offered on green (mint) and mandarin (red) besides black and white.
If you are looking for a midrange phone, this is not it. The Z3 Compact is a full blown high end device on a small size. It is definitely a BEAST of a phone, and if you need something cheaper but still great performance in a small size check the Z1 Compact out...
I have been taking a lot of care of mine and hopefully it doesn't suffer the fate of cracking glass that people complain about. I did put it in a soft case and use it with a Wrist Strap to prevent falls.
So far I can totally recommend this phone. But the design is a bit delicate.
Sahiru, 31 Jan 2015Any xperia z3c user tell me,the flash of z3c isn't powerfull for night photo shooting?Actually the flash has different intensities. If you turn it on as flashlight or assistant light for video, it will be dim... but for pictures is actually quite potent... Actually using Superior Auto on a night club recently, the flash blew out many of my pictures, I had to change to Manual and EV to -1,3 to get normal pics
UI, 27 Jan 2015Hater / Troller detected !!!nope, no hater, no kiddo here dude. I have the phone so shut up.
I have been looking through the reviews of z3 compact for couple of weeks and got to know that people are having more or less good experience with it. I am looking for a good mid range smart phone and think that this will be the best option. I like the lime colour of z3 compact. I'd like to seek advise from people here who owns z3 compact and would like to recommend it for me. Thanks in advance.
DanGogh, 01 Feb 2015What you call research, I call complete BS. The glass cannot get hot enough to cause the temp... moreBecause YOU refuse to acknowledge what others have experienced doesn't mean they're "full of it". On what do you base your distrust in them? Go to XDA forums to and read testimonials regarding the Xperia Z series cracking issue, watch Dan Roe's "hidden feature of xperia z" youtube video amongst many others. There's even a survey being carried out to identify the batch number and types of cracks appearing. These are real people who've spent money on a flawed device and feel hard done by.
Do you even own the device? If you do then pass comment on your own experience. The thing is if/when this happens to you, you'll also cry foul. To simply not question the issue is plain ignorance. I've have experienced issues so MY advice to potential buyers is to steer clear of the Z3 compact.
Best compact phone ever ! Just go for it without hesitation.
Amazing performance,camera and of course the battery life !
The camera with manual settings is excellent.Took some hit on the screen, but faced no crack issues whatsoever.It's definitely well-built unless u go boxing with in your pocket.
Recommend to anyone looking for a slim and compact device.

The glass cannot get hot enough to cause the temperature differential to make the glass break. People claiming the Z3 glass breaks for 'no reason' are full of it.
I cannot send/receive text and call or even use mobile data after it was left idle for sometime. Its frustrating that i have to restart it every now and then. I brought it to service center and sent it back to me saying they just do a pc companion and its fine but its not. Really not. Waste of money i say.
ganja bobby, 31 Jan 2015Beware before buying this phone! Yes, it is the best compact android phone currently available... moreThat is just some isolated case for what I know. I have a z3 compact and does not have any issues with neither does my friends who own a z3 got any screen cracking issues.
Sahiru, 31 Jan 2015Any xperia z3c user tell me,the flash of z3c isn't powerfull for night photo shooting?The camera is amazing and flash is excellent. Its very good in low light pics, sometimes you don't even need the flash at night
Beware before buying this phone! Yes, it is the best compact android phone currently available and the battery is simply outstanding.. BUT.. while aesthetically it's a beautiful device, the build quality is pathetic. Do yourself the favour and research into the cracking screen issues. Sony Z series are notorious since Z1 and was even featured on BBC Watchdog. Expansion and contraction issues cause the screen to break without force. Samsung and Apple get hate for quality and bending but they will replace/repair and acknowledge the issue. Sony simply doesn't give a damn. I fully understand now why Apple and Samsung are market leaders.
