    I've been running Sony's phones since ACRO S, which I was very pleased with. Then I've had both compact Z1, Z3 compact and now recently acquired Z5 compact. Still like these phones if you just think of the hardware under the hood, fast, stable, and even like Sony's interface. My Z3 compact, I just sent in for repair after 7 months of use. Unfortunately this is common in both Z1 and Z3, they are terribly fragile, they live not at all up to their marketing. Ie that they should be water and dust proof. I use the phone for almost everything daily, but are still careful handling and always durable screen protectors. Now the screen released in one left, it was already after 5 months of use, but I have always believed that it was my glass of protection that had been resolved, so I was very surprised by the entire screen of separation. Then, the no water and dust proof. When I removed the guard's screen as new, but in spite of it coming off the screen from the chassis. Think it shows very poor build quality. In addition, the cover of the charger came off well after already four months, also a sub rating. The same type of hatch to the charge were on ACRO S, but the door held for two years, maybe it had stayed even longer if the phone does not give up. I've always been a big fan of Sony's products, but I think I may start to rethink about their build quality, it is absolutely not what it once was. If you buy a premium product will absolutely stay at least a year, I think. In addition, Z3 feels more plasticky than the Z1, so perhaps it is also a sign that Sony's quality drops for each model. Sitting now with a Z5 compact, and is generally satisfied so far, but still can not help but think of one that looks even cheaper than their predecessors. Though the rating of the phone is still 6/10. Poor is absolutely not, check it functionality under the hood so I would rate it very highly, but poor build quality pulls down the grade.

    At first glance, the phone is really nice in a good size, however fragile glass on both the front and back cover, the phone must also be waterproof. Unfortunately, it is poorly designed, screen release in the upper left corner of both my and my wife's phone to charge the phone you have to open a door with gasket which is not designed to be opened frequently ie as often as you need to recharge. The door gasket damaged by use. Another reason for the low rating of the Sony support, they sell a product to meet IP68 but the guarantee only applies as long as you have not used your phone (note this is not a joke!) The guarantee does not apply in normal use or normal wear and tear. My phone got a moisture damage reported on the warranty, they asked me to send in the phone, then they searched the wrong so that they could get away to cook it in the guarantee and found a minimal damage to the gasket to the battery door, the entire front screen had been released and glipade they did not bother about. I can guarantee that the water does not come in through the battery cover. You send your phone in for repair, but the only thing they do is look for reasons not to accept the warranty claim. Since you need the information in the phone will ask you what they did to prepare the phone then you must know that they do not cook water damaged phones. So they ask one to submit a water damaged phone that you should pay for the survey when they still never going to cook it and it should be paying for 400kr. No, never buy a Sony product!

    Had Sony ZR before this model. Worked fine but after two years was broken microphone. Bought Z3 compact. good size, good-looking, fast, good camera but after dyrga half starts the fuss. The screen does not turn up, the phone locks up can go a few days ago just work again. But after the problems with the screen, the camera stops working. Leaving it in to Telia and get a new phone (good service at Telia). Already after a couple of months so also begins this screen mess and the phone freezes, it also becomes very hot sometimes. Periodically freezes the screen and when you turn the phone off, you can not turn it on for several hours. It is not reliable but otherwise a good mobile. It is a very important point that drag down whole grade. Does not matter how good the phone is prestandardmässigt if it can not be used. I could not mess with Telia no longer bought an LG Nexus 5X and have Sony as a possible backup.

    Never been in worse quality, submitted for the third time now. The screen has been released, the headphone jack stopped working 2 times, proxmity sensor functioning. Which makes it impossible to put the call. Never again Sony!
