I Wanna Buy Sony Xperia Z3 Honest Reveiws Needed!!! by Bonnie17: 12:37pm On Jan 25, 2016
Hello folks,

I wanna buy an Xperia Z3(fairly used), mater of fact, I've been obssessing over this phone for weeks.. I've been reading reveiws good and bad alike and I'm kinda confused. I'm particularly worried about it's durability cos' there're a tad too many complaints about broken screens, tho some users are satisfied with it's build quality and never had cases of broken screen.


Abeg Nairalanders wey don use dis phone or get any experience 'bout it.

Would you recommend it as a good buy?

How many times una screen don break? Or d'you have a form of protection for it?

Did your Z3 die off on you? (as in switch itself off never to switch on again)

What are the major pros and cons of owning a Z3?

Xperia Users, help a poor brother out biko!

I've used and if it's about broken screen forget about that cos it's has one of the strongest screen I've ever seen.... Both the front and back are made of same screen and it's a very cool phone... It's default music and video player is still the best I've ever seen.. But I just don't enjoy the battery that much but it's a cool phone... Even the inbuilt apps are cool unlike some phones that I deleted some useless inbuilt apps... I'm using Huawei now and if you see the screen now it's like the map to my village... Thought it's still displaying perfectly but the outer most screen has been screwed.. Lol... Buy the Sony but don't buy a london fairly used... Buy original sony.... Maybe fairly or not... Cos those London used fones are total rum...

Am using Sony Xperia z3 to type this comment. I've used so many phones but sony Xperia z3 is the best machine for now. Talk of the speed, the battery durability, the camera quality, the waterproof ability, the super ram size. I can go on n on bro. U can never regret owning the phone. Get a glass screen protector immediately you buy the phone cos the screen is very flexible and expensive. I once changed my screen for about 25k but it's worth it. I also have an iPhone 5s but u can't even compare it with Sony Xperia cos Sony beats d iPhone hands down

25K #shudders. Man, that's alotta dough...

What exactly happened to the screen? It fell?

Hope it didn't 'self crack'

I read 'bout cases of the screen cracking without a fall. Prolly due to heat or sum'in.

Yes.... A Sony Xperia Fone might be 3gig ram with 64gig memory space and a 20mp camera... But a same london used version might has less specs and all London used fones has bad ba3s...nit really bad but not strong at all... ....believe me I've been there before..

The phone is great, but once the screen falls it is totally unusable. Unlike Samsung phones that after the screen is cracked, you can still use. And will cost you a lot to replace, and with this phone you dont know which kind of fall might break the screen. I cant say the screen is durable. Other than that great phone. I would recommend you Get an S5 instead, also waterproof and premium if thats why you are gravitating towards the Z3. Just my 2kobo

I wore a kaftan and mistakenly sat on the screen causing it to have a little line crack. Any crack on the screen causes the screen to misbehave.

U are talking rubbish. Did Sony male a different version of xperia z3? A London used phone is only a term used to describe a fairly jsed phone. That is a phone that was bought brand new and the owner decides to sell after some times of use. What do u mean by not having same specs? This phone was released in September 2014, so it is just over a year old, when u calculate the time it took for the first owner to buy it, then the amount of time it took before it was resold, the amount of time it took before it was shipped to Nigeria and the amount of time it had stayed in the Nigerian market before op buys it, u will realize this phone might not have been used for more than 4-7 months. So it is very rare to find a London used xperia z3 with battery issues. I have used my htc one m7 for 2 full years now and the battery is still very solid I even dash person. Even if it has battery issues, battery can easily be changed by a technician.

London used phones are fake phones and not second hand phones o. They are not London used per say they are Chinese refurbished rubbish. They are imitated phones. I got to know that when my sister bought a London used Samsung phone and it got damaged and we took it for repairs omo that was when she regretted it.

Ur sister bought a cloned phone, not London used. Affordable in computer village sell London used phones and non of their phones are cloned. There is a difference between cloned phones and used genuine phones, just because ur sister fell guallible doesn't mean every London used phones are cloned.

It is very easy to know a cloned phone just by holding it. For a high end phone, the fake ones will be built with cheap materials. If u are not convinced, ask the seller to let u power it on, if it is cloned the screen will show because a chinese cloned phones will not come with Full Hd display. Still not satisfied? Ask the seller to let u install cpu z and run it. It is always good to buy from a shop than from hawkers. At least when u buy from a shop u can always take it back when u find out it is cloned.

I don't care much for waterproofing.. I like Sony's butter smooth UI, and powerful performance. The SG5 is a no no.. Besides most samsungs i've used lagged terribly after some time of usage.

Thanks for ur input.

I agree with you bro. I too, I've also bought and used a couple of London used phones and had no issues till I sold 'em. There've also been cases of my friends buying cloned ones.

I think it all depends on how much you know the phone you want to buy and how well you scrutinize the phone before purchase.




Inothernews... What d'you think the 'bout Xperia Z3? Is it a good buy.

I see you have good knowledge and experience 'bout phones.

It is a very good buy. Just don't crack the screen, any small crack might lead to u changing the whole display. It is good to have a knowledge of what u want to buy before buying it, especially when buying a used one. By doing so even when the bring u a cloned one u will know eithout even operating it.

Lol. Funny enough bro, we in this poo together.


That screen ish... way too many complaints on the internet, can't possibly be a coincidence. I think in a bid to make the phone slimmer they had to shrink the glass; make it slimmer too. Thus making it fragile.

And the Glass back.. Like, who the heck came up with such a bizarre idea


@ Idris4r83... How long have you been useing yours bro? What about call reception? Is true that you'll have to strain your ears to hear the person on the other end and vice versa?

And how 'bout overheating.. how fast does it heat up when browsing or gaming?

U dey mind the guy? He doesn't know the meaning of the word refurbished yet he keeps using it. Refurbished phones are even better than outright used phones in that they have been tested and possibly repaired if any fault. A used phone is sold the way it is, a refurbished phone is a used phone that has been tested and working like when new. Some people buy new phones with 30 days return policy, that is if they are not satisfied within 30 days they can return it. When they return such phones, they are cleaned and sold as refurbished. In most cases refurbished phones are just like brand new. Also when u buy a brand new phone and u take it for replacement due to factory defect, they are fixed and resold as refurbished. Refurbished phones are not less quality than brand new.

Last year I bought a London use Lg G3 for 40k, used it for 2 weeks and sold it 58k. The phone was too neat; looked just like new with zero scratches.
