Product Description

Demand greatness

The Xperia Z3 Compact is a premium smartphone featuring a waterproof* design, a 20.7 MP camera, a 4.6-inch full HD display and PS 4 Remote Play. So there’s no need to settle for good anymore – it’s time to demand great.

Low-light camera

A 20.7 MP Camera in a Waterproof* Smartphone

Despite its 8.6 mm slim handset, the Xperia Z3 Compact still packs in a 20.7 MP camera and 4K video so you can capture life as you see it and relive every moment in stunning detail. The Xperia Z3 Compact features a combination of Sony Cyber-shot and Handycam technologies for capturing the moments that matter most. What’s more, the Xperia Z3 Compact is designed to have sensitive ISO settings so that you’ll take superior photos even in low light.

Waterproof

Waterproofing Ideal for Taking Pictures Underwater or in the Rain

Dive to new depths and capture every moment with the fully waterproof* Xperia Z3 Compact, for calls in the rain and pictures in the pool.

Sound

Crystal Clear Sound and Astounding Acoustic Performance

Good is having all your music in one place. Great is making your favourite tunes sound even better. The Z3c has been designed for crystal clear listening and astounding acoustic performance so that your music can sound better in every circumstance, from a quiet environment to a bustling everyday location. And with Sony’s Digital Noise Cancelling technology, exterior noise can be reduced by up to 98 per cent when paired with headset MDR-NC31EM.

Processor

Good is Fast. Great is Supercharged

The Xperia Z3c runs on 4G/LTE, with an ultra-fast Snapdragon 801 Quad-core 2.5 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM, designed for making every interaction fluid, browsing lightning-fast and multi-tasking a cinch.

Camera

Full-HD 4.6-Inch Display Designed for High-Quality Picture

With its 4.6-inch screen, the Xperia Z3 Compact is ideal for one-handed use. The super-bright Full HD TRILUMINOS display for mobile with Live Colour LED and X-Reality for mobile picture engine reduces noise, enriches colours and delivers bright pictures with razor-sharp details. But it doesn't stop there. The Xperia Z3 Compact’s Intelligent Super Resolution technology finds and reproduces missing pixels, displaying incredibly crisp pictures, free of jagged edges.

The World’s First PS4 Gaming in a Smartphone

PS4 Remote Play*** on the Xperia Z3 Compact lets you connect your smartphone to your PS4 via Wi-Fi and play games using the DUALSHOCK4 controller. So whether you’ve been kicked off the TV, are chilling in the bath or relaxing in the garden, you can play anywhere within signal of your PS4.

A Battery that Won’t Let You Down

Battery STAMINA Mode recognises when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want – conserving every precious bit of power from that mega 3100 mAH battery for up to two days of battery life**.

Xperia Transfer Makes the Move Seamless and Painless

Moving over from a different smartphone? There's no reason why you can't bring all your stuff with you. Xperia Transfer moves your contacts, messages, music, photos, videos and more from iOS and Android in one seamless and worry-free transition, even without a computer.

Hope that you get on with the company and you don't need to return anything. They're a nightmare for returns, all sorts of red tape and costs that you burden, whereas Amazon.... they'll take anything back, for pretty much any reason!

good price, esp from amazon.

True - Amazon are very good, perhaps it is worth the extra £1.

So far so good for me with mobile phones direct, but not had to actually speak to them.

Hot hot hot! Been looking for this phone from a reputable company - wasn't sure about the mobiles direct etc as a lot of stories about screen cracks with this phone.
Now just need to find a new cheap sim only deal ... :-)

Same argument as mobile phones direct. Surely worth paying the extra £2 for the peace of mind of shopping with Amazon......

Brilliant phone, good price

Can get for £299 for reputable sellers on ebay. Cold.

Cold. Was £299 on ebays daily deals all weekend! Great little phone though.

Totally agree - I ordered one from Handtec and they were a total let-down when it broke... Amazon have always been much better when things go wrong.

Great price for this phone. I can't recommend it enough!

Is it possible to use secretly under the pool to capture nice nice boo..ty..z?

I had to return a faulty handset to mobile phones direct and they were fantastic

love my z3. would recommend

Although the eBay daily deal might not have been a UK device AFAIK.

Display is not full HD (1920x1080 aka 1080P)!

It is only "HD ready" 1280x720 aka 720P. That's lower res than WXGA 1366x768. That's what's kept me from this phone

Eeeerrr, yeah. That was the glitch price. Amazon pulled it within 2 hours of offering it up on the website. Read my deal description!

I'm gutted I didn't grab the eBay daily deal. Ahh well, here goes the Flubit.

Thank god it's not 1080p on a 4.6 inch screen.

I'd take the awesome battery life over a very hard to distinguish res bump. It's a shame it's not amoled though.

I really don't get the pixel density issue. 720p on a screen less than 5" is more than enough, in fact it's plenty for 60" lounge tv. Look at the lag issues with g3, no doubt caused by its 4k screen, also impacts battery.
The Z3c screen is beautiful and crisp. If you prefer its smaller screen, nothing touches it for features as all the other compacts limit the camera and processing power etc.

I just don't get the pixels wars. Processor, camera, build quality, os etc. I get.

Can get this for £325, would post link but HUKD don't allow the site.

In which case it probably isn't worth the hassle of saving a tenner. Sometimes HUKD can seem a pain in the ar5e when it comes to what they will allow and not allow when it comes to retailers, but just bear in mind that they have these rules to protect us....the punters!

yeah its about pixel density not resolution these days, you should care about resolution for your photo and video taking

saying that, the Z3 Compact's pixel density at 319 ppi isn't amazingly progressive, but its near the resolution that iPhone has had from 4 up to 6 (the 6 plus however has a 400+ ppi)

the HTC One (M7) that came out last year has 400+ ppi, which almost all flagship phones have followed the trend with, you can see how much nicer it looks when you look proper, though as mobiles have small displays you're not going to be able to tell the difference as much as you can with say a 40" TV going from 720 to 1080

great phone have some heat

Best Android phone in the market if you are looking for a less than 5 incher. Will get Lollipop update too.

The only question is if it's worth it if you can get a Nexus 5 for less.

Waterproof to 1.5m, so can you? yes, should you? no (although if you want your name splashed all over the local rag as a pervert, go for it!!)

Blame the tech media for that and their liberal use of the words 'beautiful' and 'gorgeous' in their write ups and reviews. Oh, and everyone for holding up 1080p as the holy grail.

Have used the site before with no problem. One of these that get there stock from Hong Kong for cheap and then ship it to UK warehouse. That's why HUKD won't allow them. Look up Expedite Electronics on Trust Pilot.

You've always been able to get a Nexus 5 for less. As you say, its for the people who don't want 5"+ phones, its definitely the highest spec of the smaller devices. You compare it with the Moto G which is the same size screen/resolution and for £150 you're getting a better camera, processor, battery and a more premium looking device.

Think I'll be in the phone shop tomorrow comparing the two. I've heard the Z3 can be quite slippery.

True dat. I once bought a win 8 tablet on amazon and after a month and a half i realised i dont want it anymore. I told amazon that it freezes and i want to return it and i have been refunded even before i returned the item
