i have bought the device in june 2015. after nearly 15-20 days of purchase i started facing problems.
i have the following problems with the device :
1. the screen suddenly went static and within a day the display was completely gone. the phone was in working condition. i gave it for repair , after which the screen fitted is not the original one , it is without a sony logo. i was charged for the replacement, even though the phone is in warranty and their was no physical damage to screen.
2. after screen replacement, the phone earpiece and speaker sound horrible.
3. i am not able to connect to net using 3g or 4g connection.
4. the camera does not work well. within a minute of shooting videos , it shuts down automatically, giving a message that the device is hot.
5. whenever i try to dial the ussd codes to check the phone balance, make some request to service provide, it does not work on this phone. i have tried using the sim card on other phones and it works well there.
6. if i choose the lte mode in this phone, i get a weak signal. while for the same sim card the signals are ok on other phones, like on moto g.
To me upgrading my Xperia Z3 Dual to 5.1.1 has been a nightmare! USSD code messages not running anymore. Consequently; No top-ups, No balance checks, No nothing!

And now I decided I never buy Sony Xperia device.
Sony developer more unresponsive. So if u facing a problem.. But Sony developer don't fix it immediately.
Got my z3 dual 6683 more than a month now and its amazing. Battery life is very good. However im sad because sony did not release fw 5.1.1 for this particular model. Anyway USSD seems working fine on 5.0.2

RiAz477, 19 Aug 2015Are you sure Mr Shadi Alasaad? Your USSD code running properly. You see your Account balance. ... morewell nothing more pity than an ignorant but a sarcastic ignorant!!
if you are having issues with your device along with some others it doesn't mean that you are the majority, there are millions of happy users out there, so keep whining if you like, but don't take it for granted that all users are having the same miserable experience that you are having with your device
So the way I see it... you live miserably @ your whining world Mr. RiAz477 and may god help Sony to put up with such ignorance
Shadi Alasaad, 18 Aug 2015Well, you have to check it manually if you want, to do that conduct the following,

Are u sure ur device very Cool after playing games(Clash of clan). Are u sure using mobile data(without WiFi) your device cool? Are you sure you device cool after simply(excess 4k) using camera. Hmm every android device hot after playing games, many time browsing Internet. It's OK. But Sony hot uncomfortable. Just need 2 minutes. This time I can't receive any call. It's not only me. Many many Sony Xperia user. Many people avoid Sony Xperia. Only cause it's heating problem. Sony developer great job.

jhayehm03, 14 Aug 2015I have z3 dual but i didnt receive yet the 5.1.1 update. im living here in Kuwait. Can someone... moreWell, you have to check it manually if you want, to do that conduct the following,
go to : Settings > about phone > Software update
or you can just connect it to a PC with a PC companion installed and it shall automatically indicate if the update is ready for you,
if not, you may have to wait a little longer as the update takes a while to reach all users,
I have received mine OTA a few days ago, and it is going smooth so far without any bugs or issues, and it made the UI faster and more responsive than ever in addition to the change log details,
Thank you Sony.
Sony did a good job with this update, it effected the UI interaction respectively in addition to the updates of the change log provided for this update (loving the home screen rotation and the drop down lists for Wifi and Bluetooth...)
updated my Z3 dual OTA three days ago and no bugs so far.
Xz3, 16 Aug 2015Heating problem with Z3... Not at all... Just coz it has a glass n metal body, it does tend to... moreIf it has tendency to heat up fast due to its metallic body, what can u expect the hot phone touching the ear if u receive a call meanwhile or using skype etc. please there will be a way to keep it cool.
My device is getting hot while browsing or using whatsapp for 15 minutes contentiously or camera is on for few minutes. please advise what to do in order the device keeps the temperature normal. Android version 5.1.1
