AnonD-310089, 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.

asdsadsa, 30 Jan 2015What is the difference between D5803 and D5833 What I know is that both references are the same features, except 3G and 4G bands Z3C D5803 is more suitable for Americas and Z3C D5833 for Asia.
Why there is no 3D view for this star handset in gsmarena.com?
I got this phone since mid December 2014, already one month and not any complains, battery life is impressive, phone is fast itself, camera is awesome, big quality display... and incredibly is just fits well in my pocket, so perfect for me and for this kind of users that still think that Compact is not necessary to be second hand features as you can see other brands sacrifice quality to make a phone mini (Including Iphone, HTC, and Samsung).
Got this phone in November 2014
About phone, excellent size, upgraded from Sony Xperia S, no difference in size, nice! Also checked Samsung, HTC and LG phones, there is always something missing =(
About phone, it's fast and have great battery life, but to get good battery life, you needed to shut down a lot of Google stuff from apps, but it was worth of it! Check forums, there are a lot of suggestions ))
About camera, it's good for phone, just face it, it's not like DSLR camera, and probably newer will be, common, it's impossible to get that quality in phone 8mm thick, but for social networks and other purposes, it's excellent.
Other problems faced, none. Never had overheating, shutdowns and other problems, using it daily, life with Bluetooth and 3G/4G on + medium usage ~2-3 days, depends on apps you are using.
If you have some problems, read manual, most probably you just don't know how to use your device :)
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2015Hi I need opinions. I have been thinking of getting the Z3 compact but reading through this fo... moreI had mine two months and had the blank screen problem with random shutdown and difficulty restarting and bluetooth not working properly. Sony repaired it with a new part and new battery. Had it back less than one week and today it has shut itself down. Looks like its finished! Seems you either get a good or a bad one down to luck.
