Though camera appears impressive on specs, after watching sample photos from Z3 on internet it appears Sony still fails to perform good in auto mode, specially the green color. World is green but photos from Z3 are not green enough. They appear to be under saturated and washed out even in manual mode, failing much applauded Sony G lens on sony website and make it appear cheap.

I need to know that whether Z3 dual can be upgraded to Lolipop or not. Apparently it wont be... Just to confirm...?
Nice phone. Nice specs.
Bad for a few things:
1. Can't change fonts, can't accept downloaded fonts.
2. The phone looks too ordinary for the value.
3. It would have been special if it was dual active, it isn't.
4. Despite the high mega pixel, the camera is not as good as a 13mega pixel of Huawei's latest dual phone.
5. Without a pouch, the back part scratches.
This could have been more attractive.
I could have opted for Note 4 dual for all the dynamics in it or the lHTC m8 dual.
Most phone Makers will have to beat Samsung if Samsung slows down on too many varieties, especially the unnecessary ones.
phone addict, 16 Dec 2014Which specific dual feature capabilities exactly are u referring to?i.e. call forwarding
vis, 16 Dec 2014Use Nokia Lumia 1520 ,everything u get Inside it...Does it have whatsapp?
Is the dual feature capabilities is same as other models like T2 ultra or C2 Dual? (ignore other mobile features i.e. batarry or 4G etc, just focus in Dual feature )
AnonD-260817, 13 Dec 2014which one is better g3 dual or z3 dual ???? help me to buy... G3 dual? Which phone is that? Are u talking about LG G3 dual? I didn't know such a phone existed. LG G3 is such a lovely device except for its battery. Hardly lasts a full day.
AnonD-333475, 12 Dec 2014i was looking forward to buy this device, but the glass cracking problem it's a deal breaker s... moreEvery phone has its negatives. There is no perfect phone. People either buy what they like, phones with the latest specs, or what they can afford or what suits them best. But whatever phone u buy can never be the best. The iphone 6 plus bends. some Samsung users complain about Touchwiz or the lack of premium build quality in their phones until the Note 4 and the Alpha came out and I personally think Samsung did a great job in making their phones look good this year. And yet there are some who will complain about battery life. Others are having an iOS v/s android war. The thing is...With every device u buy there's always a "give/take." U cant have it all. Unless someday, someone will build a phone the exact way u want it !!
I have used the iphone and an HTC M7 before switching to the sony xperia z3. What I personally liked about the Sony Xperia z3 dual is that the battery life is outstanding on this phone. I can get by a day and a half easily before I run out of juice. I have had no problems with Android except for a persistent downloading document notification when i receive attachments in my e mail. That could be an software issue. So that leaves us with hardware. Yes the back of the phone is made of glass. And it's not Gorilla glass. But isn't glass supposed to break when dropped onto the floor? Plastic / Metal would have solved that. But hey atleast it's water resistant. I always use a case and screen protector on all my phones so that when i sell/exchange it for an upgrade, the phone is still in mint condition and there are no dents or cracks or scuffs. I realise that some people dont want to cover their phones up and want to flaunt it about. In that case u could go for some minimalistic protection like aluminium bumpers that will protect the aluminium frame around the Z3. And there's also the Nillkin tempered glass screen and back protectors that u can use on both sides of the phone for some extra protection. Surely there are ways to protect ur phone no matter what brand, from accidental drops and breakages.
I have been using it for over two months. No lag, jam or hang. Apps run smoothly. Battery performance superb ! LTE worked smoothly but drained battery faster than usual 3G/HSDPA. Camera / images quality above others. Top of the top. I doubt other brands can defeat the camera performance. Specially when u combine with QX30. Killer beast pocket camera. One thing that really really dissapointing alot is Sound ! when i plugged headset both Apple Iphone5 earpod or Sennheiser Headset i have, Z3Dual better and have quite deep bass compare to HTC model i have, but seriously Sony needs to improve on the high range frequency response. High frequency gone resulting in unclear voice / songs performance.
i was looking forward to buy this device, but the glass cracking problem it's a deal breaker several users on android forums are reporting it also ...this is ridiculous for a phone on this price range. Shame on Sony , sadly there is no z2 dual :P
There is no such a perfect phone ...all of them if u read all the reviews in other sites u will find out what i mean...those reviewers have high rating on those phone with one gb of ram than those with 3 gb of ram...is this correct? there is also comparison of built in camera that the other is been focus poorly just to try to please who paid them to destroy the reputation of the other cp....
i have the latest 3 of the high end cp of the 3 most popular cp..and this Z3 top them all...
