To display the screen pinning icon, swipe upward. Made the switch myself recently. When the device is fully charged, disconnect the cable from your device by pulling it straight outward. How about the gap between screen and bezel? Hi Mark, thank you for contacting Sony Xperia Care. Flick left or right to browse to the pane that you want to set as your main Home screen pane, then tap in the top left corner of the screen.

Looking for a bit of help. Trying to flash the new Telstra firmware, and have created the ftf file. I am trying to install the drivers to connect the Z3 to flashtool, but a few of them such as flashmode throw an error when Windows tries to install it.

Search for ‘Change advanced start-up options’ and open it. Choose option 7 Disable Driver signature Enforcement 9. Extract Xperifirm to the Flashstool folder on your C drive. Run Xperifirm and download the firmware that you want for your device.

Under Telstra there will notice there are two versions whereas all other carriers have only one. If you’re running Windows 8, perform the steps listed above to disable Driver Signature Enforcement.

Select the folder where Xperifirm downloaded your firmware to, and add all the files across and hit Convert. You should then have a FTF file created. Deselect the wipe options unless you do in fact want to wipe your device.

Power down your phone by holding Volume Up and Power. You may have to repeat the power down instructions. Wait for the flash to complete and you should be good to go. Having flashed the new firmware, signal strength does appear to be slightly improved from dbm to dbm at the same location.

Annoyingly though, I now have a Telstra boot logo! It has also installed TelstraOne, but it can disabled not uninstalled unfortunately. No other bloat in site. I know, Im going to go to optus when I get back and see if they can do anything as I dont want to be without a phone.

Luckily I had a tempered glass on the front screen so no damage. Im more worried about the bent frame. How long did it take for you to receive it? I bought two of the adapters because I already have some 3 metre charging cables I want to use with it.

Hey Crazy — do you still have your stock Browser after updating to the Telstra firmware? Mine seems to have disappeared Haven’t got the phone yet though. Which leads me to my next question.

Anyone know if this phone will be available in store on the 5th? Black Dawg Down writes This is probably a real stupid question but it’s been bugging me since I got the phone and I can’t seem to figure it out What’s the ‘n’ or sideways ‘z’ in the taskbar to the left of the alarm clock icon — screenshot linked.

It pisses me off that there’s no preview of text messages. Not even the screen lights up. Tap and Pay is visible in settings only when you have the NFC turned on Doubt you can use the tap and pay in Australia at this time anyway.

Does it show on the screen when you are taking the photo only? Or on the photo itself? The Commonwealth bank sent me a breathless email a month or so ago touting their “new” system. But no, they send you a tag which can be “stuck on the back of your phone”, unless you’ve got a Galaxy S4, which uses the phone’s NFC.

Tad smaller than my MTC One. Does the Z3 use a nano sim or something? Is there an Aussie supplier somewhere? I’ve got the Z3c from Telstra and I have to say this phone is superb. Just the right size and weight.

So ill hang around this thread and see if theres possible problem that might make me change my mind: This is a pic of the top right corner of the phone http: Does anyone else have this with their phone?

If you look closely at the gap between both joints you will see that it protrudes on the right side. Is anyone using the Sony charger dock with the z3 if so how is the fit?

As in does it connect quite easily to the charger pins or do you have to line the phone up perfectly. I have a kidigi dock and it’s an absolute pain to line the phone up with dock pins.

There’s an Aussie seller on ebay and their sending the case faster than from Reaarth themselves. I should have oredered from them rather than ordering straight from Rearth website which takes weeks for your case to arrive.

Mmmm looks like a good mix of people don’t have it, so i’ll get mine exchanged. Would that be considered a defect – the manufactures must have a tolerance for this sort of stuff. Yeah it’s not exactly a fault, but i seem to have my way know friends in the industry who help me out.

Looks like it, Googling “Prestons CLOC” brings up a few results that show items are usually on board for delivery the next day. Mine is getting delivered to work so hopefully security give me a call so I can sign for it, and if they don’t I hope it gets taken to my local post office the same day.

Looks like I’ll have to be pretty careful with it, my screen protector and case don’t arrive till the end of the week: Same boat here — couldnt find any store in Highpoint which sold either. Managed to get a Z1 screen protector for the rear I didn’t even bother looking, TBH I’ll probably end up just setting it up and playing with it on wifi for a couple of days while the accessories arrive.

I’d hate to think what these things would cost to fix assuming there are even parts readily available, so I’d rather wait for a decent case and screen protector to arrive, than risk smashing it I read a few pages back that some case will cause the phone to crack???

So now that you’ve had the Z3 for a while, which one do you think stands up better to scratches, the anodized Z3 or the aluminium-insert plastic Z2? I’m starting with the Ringke Fusion Hybrid: For those who have the Z3, how are you guys finding the battery life?

My girlfriend has one and doesn’t find the battery life anywhere near as good as the reviews which is a damn shame. Phone is unrooted, but I’m not sure which bells and whistles should be deactivated or whatnot.

I bought this on Thursday night and it arrived already! A huge improvement coming from the original Xperia in my opinion. No stamina mode and just wifi is on and brightness at full, but adaptive so its cut back a bit.

I was streaming music for about 30 mins over 4g on the way to work and thats where half of my screen time comes from as well. Click on screen and the screen on time shows a much more accurate measure of battery.

That’s pretty average, the low reception is really killing your battery. Yeah my office on Bourke Street has always had crap reception, even with my original Z. Only get two bars Signal Strength dBm 34asu.

I haven’t noticed a drastic change after putting on, good in some poor in most. So I started switching my phone to 3G in weak reception areas. Sony have improved on a lot however the basics, radio quality, loudspeaker on calls and poorer WiFi chip nearly send this phone back to the stone age.

Mine has it but only ever so slightly. I have to look super close to notice it. If I run my finger over it, the side join is not as smooth as the top. But this is the case all around on each corner.

Using my phone today on my trip to Hayman Island, I really came to appreciate the Z3. The speed of the interface and boot up time was very good going in and out of the plane.

The camera was excellent on the boat — fast, snappy and accurate. Really liking this phone. I noticed my wifi was getting a lower signal than before thats for sure. But even on one bar I can still max out my speedtest at close to mbps One thing I was happy with was I always hit a dead spot between Essendon and Newmarket train station where my streaming will die but that didnt happen this morning But still ill keep an eye on it I guess.

For those who have a Nillikin screen protector, can you please explain what the story is with the “Replacement Pulling Tag”, I have NFI what it’s talking about and can’t really find any instructions on how I’m meant to use it exactly.

This is the only thing now bothering me about this phone. The occasional drop outs — which is an issue. Seeing “time without a signal” percentage is a real pain! Longest the battery has lasted is my current charge.

A question to those who have bought the nilkin screen protector I see why its hard to put the magnetic charging cable in, I wish I bought a more expensive one There is no support for the cable and of the two cables I bought only one works ‘well’ as in the magnet is in the right position and doesn’t force the top pin off The charging is pretty fragile easy to knock off and I might return these or keep them probably more expensive to return them and buy the DK48 dock Max brightness with adapt.

For those who have a Nillikin screen protector, can you please explain what the story is with the “Replacement Pulling Tag”, I have NFI what it’s talking about. Another question, does anyone know how to reinstall the software on the Z3?

I finally got around to unboxing my device properly after getting my hands on a screen protector and a nanoSIM but I’m having a lot of issues with my phone and I’m not sure if it’s hardware or software: Was standing holding my dog’s lead and my phone in the same hand while I was replying to an email.

Dog lurched excitedly at something, phone went flying across the carpark and bounced several times on the asphalt. My heart sank, expecting the glass to be smashed and dents everywhere.

Escaped with only a very tiny dent on the RHS aluminium, just under the corner. Plastic corner has a minor scuff on it. Seems these phones are tougher than we give them credit for. Haven’t activated it yet just playing on wifi till my screen protector and case arrive but it’s pretty nice so far.

Looks like it’s Tap and Pay enabled through Commbank so I’m curious to see how that goes. Not until CBA enable it. Tap and Pay only works on the S4 for now I think. So it gets denied during the transaction?

It’s the cracks you get when you don’t drop it that you have to worry about — the infamous “phantom cracks”: Mine went in today rear glass cracked. Rep had seen a few like this, and wasn’t the least bit surprised.

She thinks it will be covered under warranty — either way, I just want it fixed. Hmmmmm seeing a few little bugs at the moment, not sure if it’s a phone or app issue. Once I had some random menu options stuck to the home screen, and another time all the apps in the drawer were replaced with black boxes.

Both problems were fixed with a reboot. I think both occurred while using Apex Launcher Pro. Occasionally when in the camera playing with the different presets a message pops up saying the phone is getting hot and the camera may close.

Does the image enhancement have a negative effect on the battery? Maybe whatsapp and snap chat are degrading the battery. On another note does anyone’s z3 randomly play music, I had mine on the Bench this afternoon when all of a sudden the walkman app started playing music Must say the Z3 feels better in the hand than z Would not bin Z2 as not enough to warrant, will wait for z I’m coming from an iPhone 4s and must say I quite like it.

Quite a bit bigger than I am used too. Was on charge half a dozen times a day. Whoever suggested the ringke case needs to be shot. Do not recommend it at all. Love the Nilkin screen protector though.

I honestly don’t not even notice it is there. I did mine at lunch today and it still has not activated. There seems to be an issue with the online activation. Calling Telstra has a staff member manually activate the sim.

If it was a upgrade it should happen in less than 4 hours. Does the screen protector make it less slippery? I’m looking at buying it but am unsure. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated: Can anyone enlighten me on how Sony are with keeping firmware up to date?

I’ve been rocking a Nexus 4 for the last few years and I’m having trouble deciding between getting a Nexus 6 or a Z3. I don’t do a lot on my phone but frequent regular firmware updates are a necessities as I use the device for testing Android applications I’ve written which is why I’ve always stuck to stock Android phones.

Please use the Buying thread for all discussion of pricing, ordering, deliveries etc. Use the Accessories thread for discussion of cases, screen protectors etc. God these things are slippery: Really hoping my case arrives tonight.

Mine does this too It’ll be innocently sitting on my desk, next minute I hear a crash and it’s on the floor. Rescued mine the other night when getting a haircut.

Put sunnies and phone on the bench in front of me and it started to slide slowly. Just caught it before it went all the way off. I haven’t checked on the thread in a few days, and I seem to be one of the few who have issues when use anything other than GSM only for calls.

Wife has the same issue too with her Z3. Does anyone get bad static through the earpiece when on a phone call — it’s a lot more noticeable than my old nexus 5 and there a fix?

On another note what’s the go with image enhancement — does it cause severe battery drain and is there an advantage in turning it on? Finally managed to place an order with Telstra! Absolutely can’t wait for this phone!

The battery life on my N5 is abismal and Remote Play will keep the girlfriend happy ;. For those who pre-ordered through Telstra, how long did it take for the online activation to kick in?

It’s been almost 24 hours and nothing yet, pretty ordinary since it’s a simple SIM card re-burn. We do these every day at work and they generally take 5 minutes after a simple phone call. I had the same problem.

If it is just a handset upgrade number was already Telstra it should take less than 4 hours. It will then say it worked, ignore that. It will eventually give you a phone number to call some number.

Ignore that, it will then forward your call. Just tell the rep your mobile number, she will ask for details to ‘Open the account’ She will ask for the 13 digits on the sim card before the ‘N’.

Then she I keep saying she because the person who assisted me was female will start working on activating the sim card. It will happen instantly when they do it only if the number was Telstra before the new sim.

Any opinions on why Sony hasn’t gone OIS with the camera? I had an extended play with one of these in store and the camera seemed pretty reasonable. Just wondering why no OIS.

What sort of screen on time are people getting from the phone? I’ve read the battery life is awesome and then I see reports in forums of people getting only 3 hours SOT. Does the phone generate much heat doing normal tasks like web browsing on 4G?

I don’t play games on my phone so it’s never overly stressed. How’s everyone call quality through the earpiece — is there static in the background or is there nothing but clarity? I wouldn’t go as far as that, even on HD Voice the sound quality is still sub-par to other devices out in the market.

The guy in a Sony shop told me it was up in blue tick territory with regard to reception. Sounds like he may have been exaggerating a bit. From what I’ve read the charging dock comes with adapters that allow it’s use when the phone is in a case.

Is it a particular case that is being referred to or would I be able to get away with using it with a generic thin hard case attached? The device is certainly no where near blue tick territory.

I’m running now and im getting 1 bar reception in a normal full coverage zone. Looks at my Note 4 with full bars and crys Just a noob thought here, but is it possible that it’s to do with the ‘scale’ of the reception indicator?

Or have you verified the signal levels and it’s still shit? My Z3 seems pretty reasonable on Optus, I expected far worse. And the 4G is generally lightning fast even when only on bars.

With lower signal the phone is working harder to keep that signal thus draining battery. No one on Telstra running 4G the entire day will get 8 hours SOT a day or more if it keeps bouncing between 1 and 4 bars constantly.

I was in the Telstra store today, the big one in the city, and the Z3 that was on display was bouncing between 4g, 3g and, surprisingly, 2g. All this while my N5 was solidly on 4g with 3 bars the whole time.

That store has an in building cell I’ve got the pink spot. Only happens when in lowlight with a white backdrop. I hope Sony release a fix, but I’m not holding my breath and I don’t take too many photos of white walls so I should be ok.

I was really starting to think the phone is a good thing but poor reception is a deal breaker. Is there any Aus information that can be trusted that rates the reception of various phones?

Reviews obviously can’t be trusted because many of them are done overseas with different carriers. It could be an issue with not using the correct APN settings on the phone.

Basically its a mix of hardware and software. But it will never be perfect, even on other carriers, this phone doesn’t perform like the Z2 reception quality wise. Im about to get a Z3 from Vodafone, coming from Virgin which is quite average for coverage is the Reception good in Sydney with Z3 on Vodafone.

Also from anyones experience do you think it will be long before the Z3 is free on vodafone 80 plan as the other flag ships currently are? Whats the connector on the left hand side used for?

Half way down with the two little bumps. I thought sony had been doing this for a while with JB and KK but has never gotten to a mainstream “daily driver” release. I use Gmail as my main email account so I get double alerts from both Gmail and the regular email loaded.

Quick camera question for those more experienced with the Xperia’s. I notice it takes photos using a sequentially numbered filename eg. However, if I move some of these files elsewhere, it picks up numbering again from the first removed file rather than holding the sequence.

If I remove files, the camera will restart again at Bit of a pain, as it means I get filename clashes if I move multiple sets of files into a single place later.

Loving the phone though. Was mildly concerned about no blue tick up in NE Vic, but the signal is comfortably stronger than the S4 it’s replacing. Does anyone know how to customise the lock screen clock?

I’ve already enabled widgets under the security settings but none of the KitKat swipe functuons seem to be working. When I select and hold the clock on the lock screen I have the option to delete but don’t really want to do it as I’m worried I can’t get it back.

She wants a clock but does not like the new 4. That’s interesting because there have been reports in this thread of poor reception with this phone. How are others finding the reception?

Yea looks a lot cleaner Is it available to the public to ‘update’? Also has anybody had any experience with the PS4 Remote Play yet? How is it on Australian internet speeds? Bought my Z3 through the Sony website last week and after a week of being extremely careful with it I picked it up a moment ago to see a big crack going from the magnetic charger area to the bottom of the back screen.

I have no idea how this has happened as I haven’t dropped it even once and the last thing I had done was place it back down on my desk the night before and I am fairly certain it wasn’t cracked then, It’s not like I’ve been throwing this around or anything and I haven’t even been keeping it in my pants pockets because I was worried about it till I got a proper cover.

Guess I’ll have to try to get in contact with Sony support on Monday when they are open again but I’m freaking out pretty bad right now as I never had anything like this happen with my old phones.

Does anyone have any idea about how expensive it is to have the back glass replaced or if this is covered under warranty or whatever? My brother just smashed his brand new Z3.

Fell out of his pocket while he was sitting down about 25cm and destroyed the front screen. To be honest i’m finding mildly better reception than my S3 4G that its replacing Telstra. I bought a Z3 from Telstra and i am extremely happy with it, especially compared to my old Z1.

The battery life is insane, the screen is gorgeous, the dual speakers are nice. Though sadly i am finding 4g reception in my house a little worse then the Z1 but by the same token my Z3 is getting better 4G reception outside my house then my Z1 did.

However i have to say the best thing by far is the touchscreen doesn’t go all wonky like it was doing on my Z1: Anyone know what the best way to get repaired or replaced? Go through Sony or Optus?

You can take it here: Also is there a way to make the recent apps button work as the menu as you could on previous phones. Had this phone for a few weeks now and have just noticed the top speaker is very distorted when the volume of calls is up.

When turned down it goes away but is obviously a lot harder to hear people especially outside. I think it’s a mix of hardware and software, but mostly hardware.

Sony have seemed to cheap out on a few of the necessitates like call quality, speaker and reception. The same thing happened to me, and the phone is with Fonebiz at the moment.

I assume it will be covered under warranty because the phone was not dropped, but I’m aware that I might have a fight on my hands — it’s my word against theirs. I’ll cough up if they want me to pay for it, but I’m disappointed that the phone appears to be really quite fragile.

Having said this, I know a few Z2 owners who are less careful than me with their phones, and they haven’t had any problems. Can people with self cracked screens actually post some feedback about how it was fixed.

Alot of people experience issue yet no one updates how it got resolved. Was seriously considering z3 now its way on the backburner and with lack of any warranty feedback, even more hesitant.

It’s been a known issue with the Xperia Z build for the past two years, the phone build needs to be put together to ensure water resistance. Don’t drop your phone.

Front and back glass intact, metal frame flattened. It’s a record for me. Z3, total of 6 days. The iPhone 4 frame is stainless steel, the Z3 frame is anodized aluminium which is the same as the iphone 5 back Im waiting for my loan phone from optus but they said chances are it will be covered under warranty as its not reasonable for a phone to bend even when dropped.

I’ve got a screen protector for the back glass, had a look at it today and it has a crack in it not sure how it happened but lucky I had the screen protector on or it could have been the glass.

How many charge cycles should i expect to start seeing peak performance from my Z3 — im on my 4th charge — and battery is not really that impressive. Worse than my LG G2 so far. Kind of hard when it doesn’t last the whole day.

But hopefully it will get better. Can anyone recommend a good dialer and messaging app can’t stand the Sony ones and not a big fan of hangouts. Another popular app is Textra SMS. I use it fairly heavyish, movies and web browsing Facebook for 2.

But now have auto on. Still phone is new and wearing in. Not worried to much just wondering what others experience is in first weeks. BTW I’m with Vodafone, I’m sorry of wondering if the Flasky reception is having something to do with it, my reception is quite often at 1 bar.

I found that reception really hurt my battery life just changed from Vodafone to boost. Also google location reporting. Another thing that had an effect was double tap to wake as I keep my phone in my front pocket with the screen facing my leg.

I am now very happy with battery life after figuring out what has been draining it. Boost is Telstra, there are problems with the Z3 on Telstra. Thus your poor reception problems. Actually I have had excellent reception on boost compared to Vodafone.

Maybe the problem is with Telstra 4g as Boost is 3g only. My battery life is better on Boost than Vodafone. Why would double tap to wake causing battery drain?

I thought this should have minimal effect on battery. Yes, you are correct, the phone only has problems on 4G. Seems the IP rating has been shot to poo, which was the other driving force behind my descision to get it.

I’ve struggled with remote play wtih this phone to be honest. Had a vita using the same network setup and it was miles better with that. Pretty sure this phone can’t do wifi direct with the ps4 so that limits the usability of remote play.

Hopefully seeing its only new that they can fix it up. And hopefully they release the phone holder for the dual shock 4 soon as well. The IP rating and remote play had me sold, pretty disappointed that these features advertised are not turning out to be the real deal: Nope none in the box, they have one on their site, but it’s not available yet.

I’m guessing its not going to be cheap either. I’m disappointed with the remote play thing for the moment but i think it can be fixed. Apart from that i really do love this phone.

It’s snappy, has great battery life, good screen. Really happy with it. Hahaha and I take showers with the z3 screen lock ofc and also regularly drown it in a bucket for 5 minutes to wash off.

My port covers aren’t perfectly aligned just that the pressure test seems to show that it’s still working. Sony Z3 for 10 Days. Whilst GUI is crisp and functional the phone itself is more fragile than an egg.

It has developed cracks around the camera no longer Waterproof then and it has only been in my pocket or on the desk — not a scratch on it. Once you look into it you find its claims are untrue — only Waterproof in Freshwater, dies in Salt and indicators are it doesn’t like Chlorine.

So basically it wont die in the rain but otherwise don’t get it wet. Should have stuck to Samsung. This phone honestly sounds like the most rushed piece of hardware to come out in years. Maybe Sony’s push to get a flagship out every 6 months wasn’t such a great idea.

It seems they have skipped a lot of QC tests to get it out there. Not that it really concerns me anymore. I’m now hanging out for the droid turbo after seeing posts in this thread and XDA about the Z3’s issues.

The really annoying part is that most reviews of the phone are glowing. It’s not until real world users post in forums like this that the truth starts to be told. The exemplary battery life that a lot of reviewers crow on about doesn’t get talked about a lot by users either.

I’m seeing lots of reports of 3 or 4 hours SOT. My old Note 2 does way better than that plus I can change out the battery if needed. I was looking at this phone closely but now I don’t think I’d touch it with a barge pole.

No Sammy fanboi here but despite being made of “cheap” plastic I’ve never had one fall apart or crack despite fairly heavy use. The Z3’s glass and metal just doesn’t live up to the hype.

I’ve not had the same experience. However, it doesn’t mean you mistreated your phone. So far, I am happy with my Z3 and while it does seem to be more “fragile” than an all plastic phone, I’ve treated it normally and not had any issues so far.

For me, battery life is great and I can easily get over 5 hrs SOT on a regular basis. Of course, if your SOT is spent using data heavily, well.. Maybe I’m too easy to please, but for me the battery life of this phone is amazing I think those reviewers were spot on, amazing battery life, at least for my needs, it is.

And pretty happy as well with the build quality of the phone too, managed to drop it last week, no case, bumped of my foot and slid about 3 meters on the concrete car park floor Apart from scratches on the frame and a couple of scratches on the front glass, which are not that bad anyway, the phone is fine, probably would have been much worse is if hit the concrete full on, but still, before I picked it up from the ground, I was sure the damage will be much worse after seeing it flying on the concrete.

Will definitely get a case now, I was waiting for the official smart case, but now that I’ve seen it Yes, and having been one of the unlucky ones to have experienced the cracking issue, I’d strongly recommend buying tempered glass front and back covers like Nillkn at the very least.

The cracking is probably a by product of the water proofing. Perhaps there’s a fair bit of pressure being applied to the glass back and front. I would imagine that during the manufacturing process the glass would need to be aligned perfectly so that its sealed evenly and pressure is distributed evenly.

Environmental factors probably come into play too. I’ve never used a samsung phone but im sure some samsung users have their own unique complaints about their phone. It’s been proven the battery life is among the best in its class.

Your mileage will obviously vary depending on reception. People who are generally happy with their new Z3 will have no reason to post about their phone working fine, what’s the point?

So you’ll see a disproportionate number of people complaining about problems, the same with any other phone. As for me the Z3 is a refreshing change. I was a Samsung fanboy for the last 3 smartphones until their lagtastic firmware and design made me move on, I will be missing their plastics though.

Dropped my Galaxy S4 multiple times and it survived with no cracked screens, definitely getting at least a bumper case for my Z3. Had a look at one at JB and the clamps around the phone have pushed the frame in Extremely pleased with my Z3 but also extremely disappointed with unfixable blue tint from screen.

I’ll live with that for an otherwise great device for my needs. One of my units had a strong blue tint I’ve used it in the shower a few times and fully submerged it in the spa yesterday, still no issues!

I had my wedding last weekend and was connected to our hotel’s WIFI and was able to make and receive calls perfectly with no voice distortion or clipping. I was connected to 4G as well.

One thing i will hand to this phone is sound quality; very happy, Sony delivers in crisp sound even on the non-stock players. My tint is too strong and cannot be calibrated out enough.

I’ve tried the best settings but when I compare it to my Z2 or G3 the blue tint and washed out colours are too obvious. I checked the compatible devices on the optus website and it doesnt say anything about the z3 so I take it this isn’t compatible at the moment.

A common complaint with the Xperia Z series, the waterproof speakers are very low in sound quality. I find it better than the full auto setting. This phone is really good.

The battery performance blows my mind coming from my iphone 4s. I cannot get used to android however. Some of the most basic of functionalities are missing:.

There are some positives like easy to use plug-in features of phones plug-in, drag some files and be done, battery life and battery life. I find android hard to get used after using multiple generations of iphone.

I might sell this later and and pay the difference perhaps. Long time iPhone users hate the move to android. Seen from my experience. Personally I switch between the two platforms seamlessly and whenever I feel like it, however find iOS more pleasurable to use everyday.

I persevered with the stock z3 keyboard for a month but it’s lacking. Swiftkey is far better. Anyone have tips for getting the most out of the camera for closeup macro type shots in low light eg.

Even when using the manual mode with the touch focus the shots don’t have the same sharpness as my 2 year old HTC m7, which I find strange. After having on the LG G2 i cant be without it.

A small warning to future owners — This phone is slippery as a fish without a case, it’ll slide off even the slightest incline, i’ve had to rescue it a couple times already. Either get a case, or watch it like a hawk when you have it out on a table.

Yeah I smashed mine after 6 days. Got a replacement from Telstra. No idea how on earth they did it, but I got a Reco phone. Found out about an hour ago that the screen also has a single dead pixel.

I have been an iPhone user for the past 5 years, I’m also now onto my third iPad air 2 and didn’t find the switch that difficult. Android does have its disadvantages, but nothing that cannot be worked around.

I will probably never buy an android tablet, but in terms of a mobile phone you can’t beat it. I just downloaded two episodes on utorrent and watched them straight away. All on my phone!

I wish I could do that with my iPad! I’ve been using iOS for 4 years and I find android has given me the true potential of smart phones. I love my z3. Most of these can be fixed with apps. Heaps of other keyboard apps as well.

Was that through stay connected or did they give you a freebie? I’m surprised there are refurbs already since the phone is so new. You should definitely take it back though.

Under power management, there is location-based Wi-Fi, should I turn it on or off? If turn on, should I choose standard or advanced power policy? How does this setting works and does it makes any difference to battery?

If a phone company gives you a freebie after you smash your expensive new phone you should probably take it and run. And seriously, this thing is more than a handful. Its a bit heavy and kind of thick as well.

But overall, the phone is a great performer. I see that it runs on Android 4. The size is a step up for most people but you get used to it or forget about it pretty quickly, I went from an S3 and I don’t notice it any more.

As for the weight Yeah coming from iPhone you do tend to find a lot of annoying little irks. Some things that were simple before seem a total hassle That said once you start taking advantage of the extra freedom android provides it’s hard to go back.

I’ve got a quick question for all Z3 owners I’m trying to get a customisable live wallpaper on the lock screen but can’t seem to be able to do it You can change the lockscreen wallpaper, but not to a live wallpaper.

There may be an app to do it though, its just not a default. On another note, my screen just died on my phone. I was looking at the internet, when all of a sudden the screen went white and it has lines up and down it.

If I get it replaced, it will be my 3rd Z3 due to faults. My first had a speaker phone issue. With Vodafone, it has been just over 30 days I think since I got the replacement on ELF, will they do that again as its really obvious or will it have to go back?

So glad I got the G3. Far too many Z3 horror stories, especially for a phone that had barely any market share. I had the G3 for a while and it has the worst battery life couldn’t get over 4. Luckily the Note 4 fixed that Yes, it’s a very nice phone.

I thought about it for a long time also. Every phone is a compromise imo and the S5 fitted my needs a bit better. Not sure how this will plug in to the side micro USB port but looks like we are getting battery cases for the z3.

My Z3 black just arrived by Star Track this morning. My first impression is it’s huge, coming from iP5. I do have to note though for future reference: I have been given a Sony Z3 handset by Telstra free of charge to review.

The comments expressed by me reflect my user experience and personal opinion. It’s taking them way too long to release this in Australia. I bought mine here: It’s already available — http: Is there much latency, what’s your internet speeds?

This was pretty much the whole reason I wanted a Z3. The Z3 may make a gr8 hover board: Apparently new firmware is out for the Z3. Any idea how long it will take for carriers to roll it out?

No, just the source code which means people that make ROM’s can work on it. God I miss my phone, I have gone back to the Note 2 and the 10 day’s i’ll have without it are going to be looooong. Hope someone can help me here I’m looking at getting a Z3 for my son, he wants 32GB internal storage and I’m a bit confused regarding which model to get.

They only come with 16GB internal, the one model that comes with 32GB is Not fully compatible in Australia so I would recommend avoiding. Thinking about buying the Z3 Dual Sim variety for business and private use.

My Telstra contract has just finished and I am about to roll in another 24 months contract and going to get Z3 maybe next week. Were you after specific views on the strengths and weaknesses of the Z3 against the other devices you listed because a “good choice” is subjective depending on your own needs and usage?

Yeah I guess you’re right. One of the main reasons why I didn’t choose iPhone is because I don’t want to use itune to manage my MP3 files. I just want to have a drag and drop system — from my understanding Z3 allows this.

Battery life is important to me. But I gotta say HTC looks very nice though. Hi djmocok, I can confirm battery life on z3 is the best I have ever experienced on a smart phone.

Are there any major differences between the different offerings from carriers and Sony stores here? I’ve read the bloatware level on these phones is pretty low from the local carriers nothing from optus unless you use their sim — boot screen and one or two apps from Telstra?

Will probably just go with whoever offers the cheapest probably buying two phones at this stage unless there is something I should watch out for from a particular carrier.

I’ve read the bloatware level on these phones is pretty low from the local carriers The Z3 that Telstra provided me had over 60 apps already installed on it, though aside from Telstra One none of it was Telstra related.

Sony appear to have a whole bunch of apps they throw in. Some useful, some not so much. For example, Xperia Lounge. However with the Sony apps, there is duplication. So the free videos can only be viewed via the Sony Video Unlimited app.

The Sony apps can only be updated through the Xperia Update Centre. Thanks for that info Kalak. I guess that means there will be bloatware, no matter which one a choose: At least the carriers seem to be keeping theirs minimal.

I’m assuming I could flash any of the D firmwares — eg. To be honest this is my first Android phone, but I assume so. Got my phone Thursday, got bumped into at a club Saturday night which caused me to drop it and smash the screen.

You don’t even need to be bumped. This thing floats off seemingly flat surfaces. My reflexes are improving from catching it. Better than what it looks like now Haha!

Have to agree with that. I almost bought the same style case as you, but want to try and get away with a gel cover first for added grip. Anyone finding streaming issues over Bluetooth on apt-X devices?

I seem to have poor streaming on my headphones and receiver. It keeps chopping up or skipping but never drops the connection. Where my iPhone paired and worked perfectly with my Pioneer head unit it took 15 minutes just to get the Z3 to pair.

Since then half the time it doesn’t realise I’m in the car, especially when it comes to playing audio. I often have to ‘throw’ the audio at the head unit for it to pick things up, and even then the track information is ALWAYS incorrect.

Battery lasts for a day at least with constant emails and internet usage. How are you finding reception? Also does it tell you which sim is being dialled when someone rings you?

Probably should have purchased it from the Sony store instead I guess. I am with Vodafone and can make calls and texts but can’t access the internet. I have the Telstra logo on start-up and then on the home screen the Telstra account and internet icon.

Is there a way I can remove these and access the net through my Vodafone account? God, tell me about it. This thing has a mind of its own, my last phone I dropped maybe? It’s succeeded a couple times, only casualties are ‘thankfully’ two dents on the corners prefer this over a cracked screen and a glass screen protector about to be replaced Specific details should be on Vodafone’s website.

I swear if you look away long enough it’ll find its way out of a closed zipper pocket Yes its a slippery not so little bugger Wife put on top of toilet holder and Z3 did not like it, preferred crashing to floor, went to charge at home, it just started gliding towards edge of bench I had to do this with TPG Optus since it didn’t detect and add APN settings automatically Also change the default signature because it will say from the Telstra mobile network on outgoing emails.

I went and got the Z3 yesterday — got the copper one. Coming from Motorola Razor Hd, this thing is impressive, especially the screen and speaker quality. Hey guys I was hoping you guys could do a quick check for me when you shake your Z3 do you hear a slight rattle.

Maybe it’s unrelated maybe it is. My Xperia Z3 headphone port suddenly stopped working. I have a pair of the Xperia Noise cancelling headsets however when I plug them in it opens up a the mic settings option.

Regular headphones register but no sound comes through them. I’ve found putting a plastic screen protector on the back the one that was included with the Nilkin glass front protector makes it much less slippery.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. XZ1 Compact Verified Purchase. In today’s quest for larger and more vibrant screens, there seems to be a niche forming for compact phones, one which Sony seem to be the only company willing to fill!

The Xperia XZ1 Compact is a 4. I’ve been using this for around 3 months now, and it is my first Android device since moving away from iPhone. While not stock Android, I’ve been told this is a fairly minimal overlay, and while I did notice some “bloatware”, this was easily disabled from within the settings.

The fingerprint reader is mounted on the side, very ergonomic and unobtrusive. I didn’t find it quite as fast as Touch ID on my old 6s Plus, but it was still extremely responsive, and ergonomically very well placed.

Despite having no reader on the front, this phone is definitely not one you would class “all-screen”! There are some very chunky bezels at top and bottom. For me, this is not an issue whatsoever, and I don’t understand this obsession with making phones difficult to hold – but be aware if you are not a fan of this style.

The body itself is “glass fibre woven” plastic – not sure how this works but it feels premium, and I would believe it was metal if you told me! The bars at top and bottom are metal, while the screen is Gorilla Glass, so this should be a durable little beast.

The actual dimensions are x 64 x 9. Using the Samsung Galaxy again as an example, x 68 x 8mm, g, you can see just how small this is. The display is only p, though I can’t say I’ve really noticed in day to day use, with the screen being so much smaller than others.

It means the battery lasts longer too, another bonus. It’s nice and bright, at around nits. There are options for balanced, vivid lots of colour saturation or professional closer to sRGB.

I’ve had no issue using this even in bright daylight. The camera is one of the standout features here, with Sony being well versed in this arena, and utilising their experience well.

It is capable of recording 4k video, as well as fps slow-motion albeit only a second at this speed, so needs to be timed carefully. The “superior” auto-focus is reasonably sharp, although it does struggle with close-ups and in low light.

Sony have thought to include a dedicated camera button here, which makes “point and shoot” much more accessible and natural feeling. The chipset officially supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3. Apparently, this helps protect long-term functionality.

If you stream lots of videos, you will obviously see lower figures than this. So is it a good phone? Well, as with everything, it depends, but I have no hesitation recommending it. Here’s a quick summary: If it has, please leave a vote below, or feel free to ask me any further questions and I’ll try my best to help you out!

Comment 26 people found this helpful. Was this review helpful to you? Sony are the only manufacturer to make a full-power Android phone that has a smaller screen.

This phone wins on three key areas: Immense battery life up to 2 days – Speed: If you don’t want a huge screen on your phone but do want a fast capable phone with good battery life, this should be your next phone.

Please try your search again later. If it is just a handset upgrade number was already Telstra it should take less than 4 hours. It will then say it worked, ignore that.

It will eventually give you a phone number to call some number. Ignore that, it will then forward your call. Just tell the rep your mobile number, she will ask for details to ‘Open the account’ She will ask for the 13 digits on the sim card before the ‘N’.

Then she I keep saying she because the person who assisted me was female will start working on activating the sim card. It will happen instantly when they do it only if the number was Telstra before the new sim.

Any opinions on why Sony hasn’t gone OIS with the camera? I had an extended play with one of these in store and the camera seemed pretty reasonable. Just wondering why no OIS.

What sort of screen on time are people getting from the phone? I’ve read the battery life is awesome and then I see reports in forums of people getting only 3 hours SOT.

Does the phone generate much heat doing normal tasks like web browsing on 4G? I don’t play games on my phone so it’s never overly stressed. How’s everyone call quality through the earpiece — is there static in the background or is there nothing but clarity?

I wouldn’t go as far as that, even on HD Voice the sound quality is still sub-par to other devices out in the market. The guy in a Sony shop told me it was up in blue tick territory with regard to reception.

Sounds like he may have been exaggerating a bit. From what I’ve read the charging dock comes with adapters that allow it’s use when the phone is in a case. Is it a particular case that is being referred to or would I be able to get away with using it with a generic thin hard case attached?

The device is certainly no where near blue tick territory. I’m running now and im getting 1 bar reception in a normal full coverage zone. Looks at my Note 4 with full bars and crys Just a noob thought here, but is it possible that it’s to do with the ‘scale’ of the reception indicator?

Or have you verified the signal levels and it’s still shit? My Z3 seems pretty reasonable on Optus, I expected far worse. And the 4G is generally lightning fast even when only on bars.

With lower signal the phone is working harder to keep that signal thus draining battery. No one on Telstra running 4G the entire day will get 8 hours SOT a day or more if it keeps bouncing between 1 and 4 bars constantly.

I was in the Telstra store today, the big one in the city, and the Z3 that was on display was bouncing between 4g, 3g and, surprisingly, 2g. All this while my N5 was solidly on 4g with 3 bars the whole time.

That store has an in building cell I’ve got the pink spot. Only happens when in lowlight with a white backdrop. I hope Sony release a fix, but I’m not holding my breath and I don’t take too many photos of white walls so I should be ok.

I was really starting to think the phone is a good thing but poor reception is a deal breaker. Is there any Aus information that can be trusted that rates the reception of various phones?

Reviews obviously can’t be trusted because many of them are done overseas with different carriers. It could be an issue with not using the correct APN settings on the phone. Basically its a mix of hardware and software.

But it will never be perfect, even on other carriers, this phone doesn’t perform like the Z2 reception quality wise. Im about to get a Z3 from Vodafone, coming from Virgin which is quite average for coverage is the Reception good in Sydney with Z3 on Vodafone.

Also from anyones experience do you think it will be long before the Z3 is free on vodafone 80 plan as the other flag ships currently are? Whats the connector on the left hand side used for?

Half way down with the two little bumps. I thought sony had been doing this for a while with JB and KK but has never gotten to a mainstream “daily driver” release. I use Gmail as my main email account so I get double alerts from both Gmail and the regular email loaded.

Quick camera question for those more experienced with the Xperia’s. I notice it takes photos using a sequentially numbered filename eg. However, if I move some of these files elsewhere, it picks up numbering again from the first removed file rather than holding the sequence.

If I remove files, the camera will restart again at Bit of a pain, as it means I get filename clashes if I move multiple sets of files into a single place later. Loving the phone though. Was mildly concerned about no blue tick up in NE Vic, but the signal is comfortably stronger than the S4 it’s replacing.

Does anyone know how to customise the lock screen clock? I’ve already enabled widgets under the security settings but none of the KitKat swipe functuons seem to be working. When I select and hold the clock on the lock screen I have the option to delete but don’t really want to do it as I’m worried I can’t get it back.

She wants a clock but does not like the new 4. That’s interesting because there have been reports in this thread of poor reception with this phone. How are others finding the reception?

Yea looks a lot cleaner Is it available to the public to ‘update’? Also has anybody had any experience with the PS4 Remote Play yet? How is it on Australian internet speeds?

Bought my Z3 through the Sony website last week and after a week of being extremely careful with it I picked it up a moment ago to see a big crack going from the magnetic charger area to the bottom of the back screen.

I have no idea how this has happened as I haven’t dropped it even once and the last thing I had done was place it back down on my desk the night before and I am fairly certain it wasn’t cracked then, It’s not like I’ve been throwing this around or anything and I haven’t even been keeping it in my pants pockets because I was worried about it till I got a proper cover.

Guess I’ll have to try to get in contact with Sony support on Monday when they are open again but I’m freaking out pretty bad right now as I never had anything like this happen with my old phones.

Does anyone have any idea about how expensive it is to have the back glass replaced or if this is covered under warranty or whatever? My brother just smashed his brand new Z3. Fell out of his pocket while he was sitting down about 25cm and destroyed the front screen.

To be honest i’m finding mildly better reception than my S3 4G that its replacing Telstra. I bought a Z3 from Telstra and i am extremely happy with it, especially compared to my old Z1.

The battery life is insane, the screen is gorgeous, the dual speakers are nice. Though sadly i am finding 4g reception in my house a little worse then the Z1 but by the same token my Z3 is getting better 4G reception outside my house then my Z1 did.

However i have to say the best thing by far is the touchscreen doesn’t go all wonky like it was doing on my Z1: Anyone know what the best way to get repaired or replaced? Go through Sony or Optus?

You can take it here: Also is there a way to make the recent apps button work as the menu as you could on previous phones. Had this phone for a few weeks now and have just noticed the top speaker is very distorted when the volume of calls is up.

When turned down it goes away but is obviously a lot harder to hear people especially outside. I think it’s a mix of hardware and software, but mostly hardware. Sony have seemed to cheap out on a few of the necessitates like call quality, speaker and reception.

The same thing happened to me, and the phone is with Fonebiz at the moment. I assume it will be covered under warranty because the phone was not dropped, but I’m aware that I might have a fight on my hands — it’s my word against theirs.

I’ll cough up if they want me to pay for it, but I’m disappointed that the phone appears to be really quite fragile. Having said this, I know a few Z2 owners who are less careful than me with their phones, and they haven’t had any problems.

Can people with self cracked screens actually post some feedback about how it was fixed. Alot of people experience issue yet no one updates how it got resolved. Was seriously considering z3 now its way on the backburner and with lack of any warranty feedback, even more hesitant.

It’s been a known issue with the Xperia Z build for the past two years, the phone build needs to be put together to ensure water resistance. Don’t drop your phone. Front and back glass intact, metal frame flattened.

It’s a record for me. Z3, total of 6 days. The iPhone 4 frame is stainless steel, the Z3 frame is anodized aluminium which is the same as the iphone 5 back Im waiting for my loan phone from optus but they said chances are it will be covered under warranty as its not reasonable for a phone to bend even when dropped.

I’ve got a screen protector for the back glass, had a look at it today and it has a crack in it not sure how it happened but lucky I had the screen protector on or it could have been the glass.

How many charge cycles should i expect to start seeing peak performance from my Z3 — im on my 4th charge — and battery is not really that impressive. Worse than my LG G2 so far.

Kind of hard when it doesn’t last the whole day. But hopefully it will get better. Can anyone recommend a good dialer and messaging app can’t stand the Sony ones and not a big fan of hangouts.

Another popular app is Textra SMS. I use it fairly heavyish, movies and web browsing Facebook for 2. But now have auto on. Still phone is new and wearing in. Not worried to much just wondering what others experience is in first weeks.

BTW I’m with Vodafone, I’m sorry of wondering if the Flasky reception is having something to do with it, my reception is quite often at 1 bar. I found that reception really hurt my battery life just changed from Vodafone to boost.

Also google location reporting. Another thing that had an effect was double tap to wake as I keep my phone in my front pocket with the screen facing my leg. I am now very happy with battery life after figuring out what has been draining it.

Boost is Telstra, there are problems with the Z3 on Telstra. Thus your poor reception problems. Actually I have had excellent reception on boost compared to Vodafone. Maybe the problem is with Telstra 4g as Boost is 3g only.

My battery life is better on Boost than Vodafone. Why would double tap to wake causing battery drain? I thought this should have minimal effect on battery. Yes, you are correct, the phone only has problems on 4G.

Seems the IP rating has been shot to poo, which was the other driving force behind my descision to get it. I’ve struggled with remote play wtih this phone to be honest.

Had a vita using the same network setup and it was miles better with that. Pretty sure this phone can’t do wifi direct with the ps4 so that limits the usability of remote play.

Hopefully seeing its only new that they can fix it up. And hopefully they release the phone holder for the dual shock 4 soon as well. The IP rating and remote play had me sold, pretty disappointed that these features advertised are not turning out to be the real deal: Nope none in the box, they have one on their site, but it’s not available yet.

I’m guessing its not going to be cheap either. I’m disappointed with the remote play thing for the moment but i think it can be fixed. Apart from that i really do love this phone. It’s snappy, has great battery life, good screen.

Really happy with it. Hahaha and I take showers with the z3 screen lock ofc and also regularly drown it in a bucket for 5 minutes to wash off. My port covers aren’t perfectly aligned just that the pressure test seems to show that it’s still working.

Sony Z3 for 10 Days. Whilst GUI is crisp and functional the phone itself is more fragile than an egg. It has developed cracks around the camera no longer Waterproof then and it has only been in my pocket or on the desk — not a scratch on it.

Once you look into it you find its claims are untrue — only Waterproof in Freshwater, dies in Salt and indicators are it doesn’t like Chlorine. So basically it wont die in the rain but otherwise don’t get it wet.

Should have stuck to Samsung. This phone honestly sounds like the most rushed piece of hardware to come out in years. Maybe Sony’s push to get a flagship out every 6 months wasn’t such a great idea.

It seems they have skipped a lot of QC tests to get it out there. Not that it really concerns me anymore. I’m now hanging out for the droid turbo after seeing posts in this thread and XDA about the Z3’s issues.

The really annoying part is that most reviews of the phone are glowing. It’s not until real world users post in forums like this that the truth starts to be told.

The exemplary battery life that a lot of reviewers crow on about doesn’t get talked about a lot by users either. I’m seeing lots of reports of 3 or 4 hours SOT.

My old Note 2 does way better than that plus I can change out the battery if needed. I was looking at this phone closely but now I don’t think I’d touch it with a barge pole. No Sammy fanboi here but despite being made of “cheap” plastic I’ve never had one fall apart or crack despite fairly heavy use.

The Z3’s glass and metal just doesn’t live up to the hype. I’ve not had the same experience. However, it doesn’t mean you mistreated your phone. So far, I am happy with my Z3 and while it does seem to be more “fragile” than an all plastic phone, I’ve treated it normally and not had any issues so far.

For me, battery life is great and I can easily get over 5 hrs SOT on a regular basis. Of course, if your SOT is spent using data heavily, well.. Maybe I’m too easy to please, but for me the battery life of this phone is amazing I think those reviewers were spot on, amazing battery life, at least for my needs, it is.

And pretty happy as well with the build quality of the phone too, managed to drop it last week, no case, bumped of my foot and slid about 3 meters on the concrete car park floor Apart from scratches on the frame and a couple of scratches on the front glass, which are not that bad anyway, the phone is fine, probably would have been much worse is if hit the concrete full on, but still, before I picked it up from the ground, I was sure the damage will be much worse after seeing it flying on the concrete.

Will definitely get a case now, I was waiting for the official smart case, but now that I’ve seen it Yes, and having been one of the unlucky ones to have experienced the cracking issue, I’d strongly recommend buying tempered glass front and back covers like Nillkn at the very least.

The cracking is probably a by product of the water proofing. Perhaps there’s a fair bit of pressure being applied to the glass back and front. I would imagine that during the manufacturing process the glass would need to be aligned perfectly so that its sealed evenly and pressure is distributed evenly.

Environmental factors probably come into play too. I’ve never used a samsung phone but im sure some samsung users have their own unique complaints about their phone. It’s been proven the battery life is among the best in its class.

Your mileage will obviously vary depending on reception. People who are generally happy with their new Z3 will have no reason to post about their phone working fine, what’s the point? So you’ll see a disproportionate number of people complaining about problems, the same with any other phone.

As for me the Z3 is a refreshing change. I was a Samsung fanboy for the last 3 smartphones until their lagtastic firmware and design made me move on, I will be missing their plastics though.

Dropped my Galaxy S4 multiple times and it survived with no cracked screens, definitely getting at least a bumper case for my Z3. Had a look at one at JB and the clamps around the phone have pushed the frame in Extremely pleased with my Z3 but also extremely disappointed with unfixable blue tint from screen.

I’ll live with that for an otherwise great device for my needs. One of my units had a strong blue tint I’ve used it in the shower a few times and fully submerged it in the spa yesterday, still no issues!

I had my wedding last weekend and was connected to our hotel’s WIFI and was able to make and receive calls perfectly with no voice distortion or clipping. I was connected to 4G as well.

One thing i will hand to this phone is sound quality; very happy, Sony delivers in crisp sound even on the non-stock players. My tint is too strong and cannot be calibrated out enough. I’ve tried the best settings but when I compare it to my Z2 or G3 the blue tint and washed out colours are too obvious.

I checked the compatible devices on the optus website and it doesnt say anything about the z3 so I take it this isn’t compatible at the moment. A common complaint with the Xperia Z series, the waterproof speakers are very low in sound quality.

I find it better than the full auto setting. This phone is really good. The battery performance blows my mind coming from my iphone 4s. I cannot get used to android however. Some of the most basic of functionalities are missing:.

There are some positives like easy to use plug-in features of phones plug-in, drag some files and be done, battery life and battery life. I find android hard to get used after using multiple generations of iphone.

I might sell this later and and pay the difference perhaps. Long time iPhone users hate the move to android. Seen from my experience. Personally I switch between the two platforms seamlessly and whenever I feel like it, however find iOS more pleasurable to use everyday.

I persevered with the stock z3 keyboard for a month but it’s lacking. Swiftkey is far better. Anyone have tips for getting the most out of the camera for closeup macro type shots in low light eg.

Even when using the manual mode with the touch focus the shots don’t have the same sharpness as my 2 year old HTC m7, which I find strange. After having on the LG G2 i cant be without it.

A small warning to future owners — This phone is slippery as a fish without a case, it’ll slide off even the slightest incline, i’ve had to rescue it a couple times already.

Either get a case, or watch it like a hawk when you have it out on a table. Yeah I smashed mine after 6 days. Got a replacement from Telstra. No idea how on earth they did it, but I got a Reco phone.

Found out about an hour ago that the screen also has a single dead pixel. I have been an iPhone user for the past 5 years, I’m also now onto my third iPad air 2 and didn’t find the switch that difficult.

Android does have its disadvantages, but nothing that cannot be worked around. I will probably never buy an android tablet, but in terms of a mobile phone you can’t beat it. I just downloaded two episodes on utorrent and watched them straight away.

All on my phone! I wish I could do that with my iPad! I’ve been using iOS for 4 years and I find android has given me the true potential of smart phones. I love my z3. Most of these can be fixed with apps.

Heaps of other keyboard apps as well. Was that through stay connected or did they give you a freebie? I’m surprised there are refurbs already since the phone is so new. You should definitely take it back though.

Under power management, there is location-based Wi-Fi, should I turn it on or off? If turn on, should I choose standard or advanced power policy? How does this setting works and does it makes any difference to battery?

If a phone company gives you a freebie after you smash your expensive new phone you should probably take it and run. And seriously, this thing is more than a handful.

Its a bit heavy and kind of thick as well. But overall, the phone is a great performer. I see that it runs on Android 4. The size is a step up for most people but you get used to it or forget about it pretty quickly, I went from an S3 and I don’t notice it any more.

As for the weight Yeah coming from iPhone you do tend to find a lot of annoying little irks. Some things that were simple before seem a total hassle That said once you start taking advantage of the extra freedom android provides it’s hard to go back.

I’ve got a quick question for all Z3 owners I’m trying to get a customisable live wallpaper on the lock screen but can’t seem to be able to do it You can change the lockscreen wallpaper, but not to a live wallpaper.

There may be an app to do it though, its just not a default. On another note, my screen just died on my phone. I was looking at the internet, when all of a sudden the screen went white and it has lines up and down it.

If I get it replaced, it will be my 3rd Z3 due to faults. My first had a speaker phone issue. With Vodafone, it has been just over 30 days I think since I got the replacement on ELF, will they do that again as its really obvious or will it have to go back?

So glad I got the G3. Far too many Z3 horror stories, especially for a phone that had barely any market share. I had the G3 for a while and it has the worst battery life couldn’t get over 4.

Luckily the Note 4 fixed that Yes, it’s a very nice phone. I thought about it for a long time also. Every phone is a compromise imo and the S5 fitted my needs a bit better.

Not sure how this will plug in to the side micro USB port but looks like we are getting battery cases for the z3. My Z3 black just arrived by Star Track this morning.

My first impression is it’s huge, coming from iP5. I do have to note though for future reference: I have been given a Sony Z3 handset by Telstra free of charge to review. The comments expressed by me reflect my user experience and personal opinion.

It’s taking them way too long to release this in Australia. I bought mine here: It’s already available — http: Is there much latency, what’s your internet speeds?

This was pretty much the whole reason I wanted a Z3. The Z3 may make a gr8 hover board: Apparently new firmware is out for the Z3. Any idea how long it will take for carriers to roll it out?

No, just the source code which means people that make ROM’s can work on it. God I miss my phone, I have gone back to the Note 2 and the 10 day’s i’ll have without it are going to be looooong.

Hope someone can help me here I’m looking at getting a Z3 for my son, he wants 32GB internal storage and I’m a bit confused regarding which model to get.

They only come with 16GB internal, the one model that comes with 32GB is Not fully compatible in Australia so I would recommend avoiding. Thinking about buying the Z3 Dual Sim variety for business and private use.

My Telstra contract has just finished and I am about to roll in another 24 months contract and going to get Z3 maybe next week. Were you after specific views on the strengths and weaknesses of the Z3 against the other devices you listed because a “good choice” is subjective depending on your own needs and usage?

Yeah I guess you’re right. One of the main reasons why I didn’t choose iPhone is because I don’t want to use itune to manage my MP3 files. I just want to have a drag and drop system — from my understanding Z3 allows this.

Battery life is important to me. But I gotta say HTC looks very nice though. Hi djmocok, I can confirm battery life on z3 is the best I have ever experienced on a smart phone. Are there any major differences between the different offerings from carriers and Sony stores here?

I’ve read the bloatware level on these phones is pretty low from the local carriers nothing from optus unless you use their sim — boot screen and one or two apps from Telstra?

Will probably just go with whoever offers the cheapest probably buying two phones at this stage unless there is something I should watch out for from a particular carrier. I’ve read the bloatware level on these phones is pretty low from the local carriers The Z3 that Telstra provided me had over 60 apps already installed on it, though aside from Telstra One none of it was Telstra related.

Sony appear to have a whole bunch of apps they throw in. Some useful, some not so much. For example, Xperia Lounge. However with the Sony apps, there is duplication.

So the free videos can only be viewed via the Sony Video Unlimited app. The Sony apps can only be updated through the Xperia Update Centre. Thanks for that info Kalak. I guess that means there will be bloatware, no matter which one a choose: At least the carriers seem to be keeping theirs minimal.

I’m assuming I could flash any of the D firmwares — eg. To be honest this is my first Android phone, but I assume so. Got my phone Thursday, got bumped into at a club Saturday night which caused me to drop it and smash the screen.

You don’t even need to be bumped. This thing floats off seemingly flat surfaces. My reflexes are improving from catching it. Better than what it looks like now Haha! Have to agree with that. I almost bought the same style case as you, but want to try and get away with a gel cover first for added grip.

Anyone finding streaming issues over Bluetooth on apt-X devices? I seem to have poor streaming on my headphones and receiver. It keeps chopping up or skipping but never drops the connection.

Where my iPhone paired and worked perfectly with my Pioneer head unit it took 15 minutes just to get the Z3 to pair. Since then half the time it doesn’t realise I’m in the car, especially when it comes to playing audio.

I often have to ‘throw’ the audio at the head unit for it to pick things up, and even then the track information is ALWAYS incorrect. Battery lasts for a day at least with constant emails and internet usage.

How are you finding reception? Also does it tell you which sim is being dialled when someone rings you? Probably should have purchased it from the Sony store instead I guess. I am with Vodafone and can make calls and texts but can’t access the internet.

I have the Telstra logo on start-up and then on the home screen the Telstra account and internet icon. Is there a way I can remove these and access the net through my Vodafone account?

God, tell me about it. This thing has a mind of its own, my last phone I dropped maybe? It’s succeeded a couple times, only casualties are ‘thankfully’ two dents on the corners prefer this over a cracked screen and a glass screen protector about to be replaced Specific details should be on Vodafone’s website.

I swear if you look away long enough it’ll find its way out of a closed zipper pocket Yes its a slippery not so little bugger Wife put on top of toilet holder and Z3 did not like it, preferred crashing to floor, went to charge at home, it just started gliding towards edge of bench I had to do this with TPG Optus since it didn’t detect and add APN settings automatically Also change the default signature because it will say from the Telstra mobile network on outgoing emails.

I went and got the Z3 yesterday — got the copper one. Coming from Motorola Razor Hd, this thing is impressive, especially the screen and speaker quality. Hey guys I was hoping you guys could do a quick check for me when you shake your Z3 do you hear a slight rattle.

Maybe it’s unrelated maybe it is. My Xperia Z3 headphone port suddenly stopped working. I have a pair of the Xperia Noise cancelling headsets however when I plug them in it opens up a the mic settings option.

Regular headphones register but no sound comes through them. I’ve found putting a plastic screen protector on the back the one that was included with the Nilkin glass front protector makes it much less slippery.

Mine doesn’t slide across surfaces anymore. Restricting calls You can block all or certain categories of incoming and outgoing calls. If your subscription includes a voicemail service, you can send all incoming calls from a specific contact directly to voicemail.
