Thank you for our detail information about Z3.
I would like to reconfirm again, how much time needed to charge Z3 from battery with 30% ?
I am using Samsung Note 4 and basically satisfy with its performance and the speed battery re-charged from 30% (arround 90 minutes).
Can't believe that. Have dropped it accidentally from 3' 5" height twice and nothing happened. Sat multiple times on it and still intact. Know what? Have left giving it any special care ever since. So far so good. Cheers! ;)
Just bought my z3 compact green and so far so good. I hope to have this phone for 2 or more years. I love the size. Just right and the screen resolution is awesome. Camera is better compared to my samsung s4.
I bought z3 compact on. 3rd jan 2015 after six days the phone is fully dead. That night i put the phone in airplane mode. There was about 35 % battery. Next morning the phone is seen switched off. I put it to charge but nothing happened. The device is fully dead. Next day o contacted the vendor and they replaced with new one. But i lost all contacts and data in the phone memory. Never expected this kind of problems from sony and that too from a this much costly device.
probably one of the best phones. better than any iphone. great screen, scratchproof body, powerful processor and best battery life.
Owned a green Z3 Compact (wish i got the red one though). . .responsive and battery life's awesome. It'll be another year or two before i upgrade.
But OEM's have this mindset of increasing the screen each year because they think bigger is better. So Z4C will be 4.7, Z5C=5" and soon... because people are greedy of having extra large phone. But please Sony just keep it at 4.7" maximum. You have Z4 or Z4 Ultra ro play with larger screen, if u want u may have 100" Z4 Ultra.
After 3 years using HTC one X, great superphone, I just upgraded to Sony Z3C. Just the right size terrific specs very happy. The combination of hardware and size was the final decision. Plus looks gorgeous fantastic good. Flat screen TV in the pocket not for me thanks. Battery life is good but do not expect miracles.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is the best Android phone (or smartphone in general) that's come out in the past 3+ years. While every other flagship phone has gotten progressively larger with each new version, Sony has properly listened and created a fully-featured, fully-powered smaller version of it's huge Z3, and the results are an overall better phone.
The 4.6" 720p LCD screen looks beautiful and crisp, while also sucking up less power, resulting in the Z3 Compact's fantastic battery life. In fact, it is the highest-rated Android smartphone based on battery life in GSM Arena's charts. The smaller screen also manages to fit on a phone that's no larger than the 4.3" Z1 Compact, while being slightly thinner.
So what you get is a top of the line, Snapdragon 801, 2GB of ram, a microSD slot, 20MP camera with camera button, stereo speakers, and waterproof rating in a phone that actually fits in your pocket or hand.
The Sony skin on top of 4.4.4 is very minimal, and if you want to customize further, the phone is fully unlockable so if you know what you're doing, you can unlock the bootloader (per Sony's instructions) and root the device.
Front glass is not shatter proof. Just one time it felt on the floor ( phone has cover) and glas has a crack line. Part of display is not sensitive anymore. Never happened with Nokia...
I have a Z3 Compact and I'm having no problems at all with it. Its super fast, the screen is excellent, I love Smart Call Handling and Smart Backlight Control they all work perfectly. The phone even tells you if you're preventing Stamina mode from working properly and if your device is left on standby for a long time, the phone will suggest you switch on stamina mode to save even more battery life. Its a really smart device and I love it. I have the white version and it looks beautiful and feels solid and very premium. Other ppl keep complimenting me about the phone. When I'm not using it I actually just hold the phone in my hand because it feels so comfortable. The phone lasts me about 51% at 22:01 laste at night and I text on bbm a lot a few whatsapp messages, 4G, listening to music for at least 4 hours and browsing for 1 hour and about 30 mins. When I got it and charged it for the first time it took an hour and 30 mins to fill up from 15% to 100%. I even dropped the phone when I was standing coz it is a bit slippery and it landed on tiles and it has no cracks whatsoever. I haven't tested the waterproof yet. Best phone I've ever had.

I got a Sony Xperia Z3 since it got released it didn't have any defaults and it has satisfied me ! , users should use the product properly until and unless if they know how to use it
i have one, on the 8th day of ownership, i can only assume it flexed in my chest pocket, and shattered the back.def no impact, been carrying various smartphones there 4+ years with no issue. sony repair, 3 weeks later i drop it onto a laminate floor, no higher than 400mm to fall, smashed it again. my fault,yes, to all you haters, but ive dropped my prev phones countless times from much higher with no consequences. it wasnt in a wallet, i dont like them, and before anyone says it, if they have to go in a wallet now cos they are so thin/fragile/fantastic or whatever, then why not make them as thick as they would be in a case, with a rubber back, because whats the point of it being shiny glass both sides if it cant handle a bit of real world average use. my money has gone where my mouth is, im fixing it to sell, and have already replaced it, at my own expense, with an s4. as far as operationally, im not blown away by anything it does,and though virtually every single electronic device in my house is top of the line sony, this is the last sony product i will ever buy
I've owned this mobile since November last year, and I'm sorry to say it has been a real disappointment for me.
* Without any particular reason the back side has shattered into a thousand pieces. (I even have a protective case around it)
* It drains battery like no other phone I have had and needs to be recharged at least once a day.
