Anonymous, 05 Apr 2016Nice information to know on Sony cells you are welcome but it's not only regarding Sony cells same could be considered for other phones such as new S7 for example that is also waterproof now...

I only had small issue with Z3 back then it's headphone jack stooped working but it's was my fault actually since I connected headphones before 3.5mm jack was dried out completely and that caused short circuit...I think on newer models like Z3+ and Z5 that can't happen.
anyway I could repair phone under warranty but it's to big of a pain for me to ship it to Sony service...so I did service on my own.
I don't know about your case but if any service repair work is done on your phone that could make it no longer waterproof or if it was exposed to extreme heat and made back cover loose (like under windscreen in a car sun rays would be magnified and could produce a lot of heat)...I mentioning this things since it sometimes happens without people to be aware of such risks...

Either way...im not against the xperia...as its a great device...but sony are stupid on changing they're policy to whatever suits them.

Hi, im from sri lanka, all i need to know is does Sony Marshmallow update bring up Sinhala font rendering? (unicode) Lumia, Samsung offered this for a long time, but my Z3 doesn't have it even with lollypop. Can someone google "Sinhalese" and tell me whether it shows proper fonts or some black boxes
I don't think it's really WhatsApp but due to the display. It does take up the most amount of power. 10% reduction after that amount of time - a bit high, but not abnormal.

I wasnt watching any videos and was using wifi the entire time. I also was not playing any games. the first hour I saw a 30% drop when I downloaded the following apps :
then I was continuously using watsap for 45 mins at 40 percent screen brightness and saw a 10% drop.
Just would like to know if this is normal or do I have some kind of faulty handset?
Dezousa, 31 Mar 2016Hi all,further to the comments i read,i am confused.can you please suggest me Z5 or Z3,which i... moreBoth are great. Z5 is newer, so it has some new features like new camera, processor, fingerprint scanner etc. But, it will be costly. Z3 on the other hand is good too but will get updates later but will be cheaper.

None of the previous 2 had to be replaced like this. There coud just be a problem with the devices shipped to your region or that store in particular. I suggest trying to buy online for a change.
JustBought, 02 Apr 2016Hi guys, how long does your battery last on default settings whilst using apps like watsap?

Continuous screen On time,
continuous use of data [not WiFi] , especially downloading things.
U are doing 3 of these things continuously then obviously battery power will drop faster.
