33 Comments on Xperia Z3 Compact Review: A Small Phone That Packs a Big Punch

  1. buying one of these as a stop gap after my note 4 decided to let me down with its lag and random reboots!

    actually looking forward to it and am now onto my 3rd smartphone manufacturer (2 HTC's and 2 Samsungs previously)

    still holding out for project ara though.

  2. Any Idea which is the best front and back 9h glass protector ?

    I searched high and low and get conflicting opinions on the Nillkin, rhino shield, mocolo….

    I want a good screen protector that covers the back and front from impacts, shatter and scratches

  3. Although a little to late,i have a question regarding the z3c's quick charge 2.0 capability.Are all variants quick charge 2.0 compatible or only the japanese variant(as some sites suggest) Thanks in advance!

  4. I was an iPhone user, now I switched to z3 compact and it is running Android 5.2, maybe a stupid question, but how did you do forecast at 2:30? My forecast looks awful, this is quite simple and I really like it…

  5. "The Sony Xperia Z3 Compact may be small,.." since when 4,6" is small? Around 2-3 years ago it was the biggest screen now it's small. As if people had only a short distance memore.

  6. Definitely goin to grab this phone, there's the Z5 Compact, but right now it is too pricy. I think that this phone should be just right, specs are great and the screen size is just perfect compared to my current Xperia Z with a 5inch display. BTW, anyone here knows if Sony's Service Center can fix my Xperia Z Phone housing? My little sister dropped it badly, and the sides are loose. >.>
