You buy something directly from China, then generally speaking you are at the mercy of their safety standards. So; what safety standards do these devices conform to? They don't have to, and therein lies the problem. It's not say that they can't work perfectly, they can and many do I imagine. The problem is that you're relying on some nondescript, heavily profit motivated Chinese company to regulate itself.One thing Britain prides itself on are safety standards which have come about by learning hard lessons in the past. Well, the more people import stuff directly from China, the more we go back on them.


They do technically have to conform to safety standards if they are to be imported to/sold in the UK - they should be CE marked to indicate compliance with EU regulations, regardless of country of manufacture. However, obviously this is difficult to regulate and manufacturers can 'self-apply' the CE marking, with some Chinese manufacturers even cheekily labeling their products with 'CE' and claiming it stands for 'Chinese Export'. These chargers are labelled both 'CE' and 'FCC' (to indicate compliance with US regulations), which of course could mean nothing, they're just letters written on plastic, but again these are not complicated devices, they contain such simple components that it would be almost impossible not to meet EU safety standards.

They're so simple you could make one yourself with some basic components (resistors, capacitors, etc.), but low quality ones may do a poor job of regulating the voltage, and it's possible that a voltage spike could damage the device but a good device will be able to manage that. Major problems occur when there is too much current, which would be a problem with your device rather than the charger, because, as Bradders said, the charger only provides the amount of current provided because it is down to the device being charged to 'pull' the electricity from the charger.

Mine died badly about 5 minutes after being in water (a few cm). Had to send it back for repair as well. After 2 weeks got it back with the usual main oard replace (essentially meaning they have given you a refurb back). As with you it has a different EMEI number and thus is relocked. The worst thing is that I encrypted the ad card so have now no chance of recovering the data on it. Great. I've chucked it in the draw. Will use it as an outdoor camera now on hols and that's about it.

The processors ageing now, and you can probably get a bit more power and efficiency from Chinese phones at this price. I can confirm that it works on 3rd party companies using the Vodafone network (i.e. Talk mobile) without needing to unlock the phone. Also had to use a Firefox browser trick to order without compulsory £10 top up. There is a 'keep existing sim option' but it disappears before you can click it. Use Firefox, click "View - Page Style - No Style" and the text page appears allowing you to select the option.



Are there chinese phones of this size? I'm meaning phones that although being chinese seem somewhat/partly UK based in their selling, like Huawei. (And thus seem safer to order.)
Im really in 2 minds about buying this phone.

I bought the m4 aqua last year which is of the same design. Most recdntly the sd catch doesnt work, i can only speak when loud speaker is on, rear camera pictures have lines on them.

But at £150... This is tempting

Agree, no coincidence that the Z3+ is now cheaper on the O2 site than the orginal Z3. My Z3 is still going strong without the Plus's issues. Great battery life. No need for me to 'upgrade' unless I lose/break it.
I have switched to Samsung after being a Sony user for years and years. I had the Z2 which despite being a lovely phone had several issues of sudden battery drain, not charging to 100%, heating up etc. My daughter had a Z2 that cracked the screen through over heating. She then upgraded to the Z3 which she still has problems with. My other daughter had the Z1 compact and her problems were really bad. Over the course of a year I was googling for solutions to these problems and hundreds were also suffering the same issues with no fix offered by Sony so that's why we switched to Samsung. S6 edge and S7 and absolutely love the phones no issues at all.
However I have no problems with my Z2 tablet.
But the newer Sony phones I would not recommend at all.

Thanks for that!
These are not waterproof as have been refurbished it say in the description, so not really the bargain it looks when you consider that feature is one of its big selling points.
