Great phone, and good price. Just a word of caution the photos are of the Z3 compact, but specs match the Z3. So make sure you check if you buy

I saw this yesterday, nice price, great phone.
Almost tempted to get, but will stick with my Z2 for now.

There's not too much difference in performance is there ?

Both have rather good battery life for sure.

Thinking of ditching my iPhone 6 for this. What do you guys think I should do as I can't make up my mind

Is it a standard IPhone 6 not the Plus? If its a plus I would keep with it, if not I would seriously consider it. I love my ipad for tablet duties but will always go with Android over IPhone for mobiles. This has sd card slot for expandability and is fully water proof which are big pluses over IPhone. The major factor is the app store, the IOS apps are much better than android IMO. I love Sony tech though and the Z3 is up there with LG G4 and Samsung G6 for me in desirability

Had this phone for 8 months now.
Solid phone, very responsive, good camera and nice design.
Ex iphone admirer converted.

A very reasonable offer for this grand phone!

Cracking price, heat added.

There is one thing amazing seriously going for this phone and that is battery life. 2 days, yes 2 days!

OK so in real usage (unless you play lots of Candy Crush) this will last you at least 1 1/2 days with the normal day usage (checking social media, taking pictures, listening to music)

I do find the the flap for charging annoying though and with time, the rubber does degrade, so I have the DK48 charger too (but word of warning, those are not very well made)

Thanks for your response, yeah it's just standard iPhone. Really been thinking of moving to android as I've had iPhones since the 3g and fancy a change. Think this might just push me to it.

just couldn't take to Sony, so just recycled this with mazuma for £176 in Argos vouchers and got the edge. A great phone but I'm more of a Samsung fan

Great phone, insane battery life

I did when I was due an upgrade and was sick of the apple's new phone every six months and Itunes always need to update all the time, Never looked back since having it and the camera is amazing at 20.7mp plus lasts for at least 2 days on the battery also never scared of using it in the rain (Live in scotland so thats almost always) I say go for it you won't reget it.

A LOT of fake magnetic chargers about, the first one I ordered through Amazon said it was 'Genuine Sony Magnetic Charger*' *not in retail packaging - it was a load of rubbish, poor quality plastic and lots of flash on the joins. Returned and sourced an official one (used) through eBay with full retail packaging and it's a hundred times better.

Great deal.

I really don't know whether to go for this. It's a toss up between this, Oneplus One (or wait for the Two), LG G3 32gb or an S5.

I was going to buy a Oneplus One today, but out of stock now. Then this comes along and I've been somewhat put off by the supposedly poor battery life of the LG G3. I was even considering the Z3 Compact a week or so back, but decided I want something larger coming from a Nexus 4, which I'm now finding a little small.

Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated

How do you use the code in store? Do you use fasttrack and the enter a code during checkout?

The OnePlus will be a pain in the bum to ever repair. The G3, as you said, has poor battery life and the screen is supposed to be mediocre. The S5 is old and imo ugly.

I can't fault the z3 and would recommend it to any one. It doesn't do anything wrong.

Pay at till and quote TECH10 to assistant, they will input into the order

GRRRRRRRRR All these Xperia phones on sale and the only one I want the xperia z3 compact, isn't on sale!

Gutted ! Got fed up with waiting for this to come down to a reasonable price so jumped on the recent Moto-X offer instead.

Although I have always been a Motorola fan - just wanted a Z3 for the option of playing the PS4 on it.

Never mind, the Moto-X is a great phone anyway, especially at the price it was going for.

I'm also using a Nexus 4 still, I've been trying tom decide between a Z3 and Z3C for ages. Might wait and see if the rumoured normal size new Nexus turns up at the end of the year, see if I can keep the Nexus 4 going for that bit longer.

Argos state

"This particular phone is SIM free meaning that any network SIM card can be inserted. However, please note that this phone is not unlocked and that it will lock to the first network you use."

is that right ?

One warning - the glass front and back on these crack easily if dropped and the touchscreen won't function if only a single hairline crack across it. The price to replace the glass? £180!

Great phone though - I love mine but glad I've got it insured...

what the person above said, it's a great device but ever so fragile. The glass can shatter even if dropped with a case on - former z3 owner

Thank you for posting! I've been waiting for this to drop for a couple of months now and looking forward to picking it up later today!!!

I think the E3 @ £65 from Asda is better value.

Would still take the Z2 for £199 over this. Not much difference between them for the extra cost.

Love my Z3 Compact battery is good, even better now with Lollipop update and paired with my Smart Watch 2, battery last considerably more (since i get notifications on the watch, I do not need to activate phone screen as much). With magnetic charger you do not need to keep opening the waterproof flaps either

I'm in the market for a new phone, but not in a mad rush. Got Nexus 4.
I like to buy top end once the price has dropped due to next model being out or imminently out.
Does anyone have any thoughts on of this 'may' drop cheaper in the next month or two due to the next flagship release?

Also, would you say it's worth holding out for the S6 to drop or would that be a long way off dropping to this price?


Thanks

​The next flagship is already out, the Z3+!

Oddly it isn't as good as this model tho, complaints about the snapdragon 810 processor overheating and the device throttling power to cope with it.

I got this.

One of the main features I was looking forward to was remote play. Using a genuine PS4 pad looked brilliant. But simply put, on the Z3, it doesn't work. It's laggy, got screen artifacts and disconnects frequently. Totally unusable. Which is disappointing, as it is great on my Vita using the same set up. Good for emulators though.

the dk48 I got was genuine, and I had to send it back for repair, twice now! second time was faster,but first time took them about a month to return to me.

I'm still using the z3 now, and it is a great phone

If only they had it in White...

I have this phone and I love it BUT the volume output via the speaker during the call (loudspeaker mode) is so low that you can hardly hear it.

Some of the apps also do struggle with the volume and it doesn't matter what changes you make to the equaliser or other sound settings.

Not sure what colour you want, but the white model is available directly supplied by amazon for £ 290.00. Seems a good price

Amex card holders, worth checking if you had/have the £10 off £70 spend - http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/new-amex-offer-10-off-70-argos-10-off-50-hof-25-off-85-achica-2222236

I'm still running my Nexus 4 - worth the upgrade? Camera and battery life have me interested, plus an extra £20 off over 2 x Amex cards.

Does anyone know how long the TECH10 code is valid for? I can't see details online and my local stores won't have stock for 5 days. Thanks.

Don't want to seen a damp squib but I have this phone, they are slow at getting updates out n when they do half the stuff isn't working ie my hotspot doesn't now work Sony won't reply to my problem, and looking on the forums there's a lot of problems.... My Mrs has the Samsung s5 and it's much quicker....i would be getting the G3.... Not a disgruntled Sony owner just better out there, haven't mentioned the screen cracking issues yet...... Oh hold on....
