Amaging... Money having worth these days with sony...lollipop will be late i think....thanku sony
I don't know why everyone is going on about this glass cracking thing, seriously. Its like dropping an iphone 6, if you drop it the phone might break apart and screen might shatter and if some people drop it the phone doesn't break at all. Same thing with the Z3, if you drop it the glass can break and screen can also shatter but many z3 users drop their phone and it doesn't break at all. Self cracking back glass panels I do believe only happen on the color versions of the phone (I've searched for cracked white z3c and found nothing), not white and black so I thing its something to do with the colours that Sony added or something. A friend of mine dropped her s4 mini and the screen shattered. The main message is if you drop phones don't expect them to still work or still be in great condition.

You are totally uninformed on the topic yet are still trying to sound smart and argue. That's some audacity assuming every Z series owner who has corroborated and said their screen/back cracked without force is a liar. But please continue, Mr Scientist and tell everyone how glass behaves theoretically without looking at real life evidence. Why not get the mythbusters to help you debunk this one? ;)
Best mobile with best battery and great camera.... Blindly go for it....great colors....main thing is music in earphones.... Great mobile.....in all spects no comparison in market...and single hand use....loved this badly...
Little worried about its delicacy now! Will it be ok just to stick tempered glass protector on both front and back ?

AnonD-310089, 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.
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.

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.
