The main reason is that as you can see below mine bent.
Sony have made a flimsy phone which I am told isn't covered by warranty on twitter:
@stowgood We're sorry for the inconvenience, this is consider physical damage that voids the warranty, you can send it in for repairs 1-2I was reasonably happy with the z3 until this but if you are still not convinced to avoid it here are some other reasons not to by the z3:
— Sony Xperia (@sonyxperia) January 12, 2015
- You can't remove the battery
- The wireless charging port on the side is pretty useless. QI charging requires an expensive case.
- The glass back makes it slide off anything.
- Sony phones lose their resale value really quickly.
I used to be a huge fan of Sony. I have fond memories of my first Hi Fi, my treasured silver and orange portable CD player and of course the first Play Station! They have also made an excellent pair of waterproof headphones I really like with an MP3 player built in, until recently I was looking at upgrading them to the bluetooth version.
So I decided since the split with Ericsson and with the way they have adopted android I would take a risk on their new products. I excitedly purchased the z3 and as soon as I could I got the Sony Smart watch 3 to go with it. I'd love to be telling you it worked out great for me but I feel I've been burnt and I won't be buying anything else Sony any time soon after receiving such poor customer service.
