They'll probably make it backwardly compatible, like they did with the Z.... eventually.

Not only will ds4 work on the z3 but so will remote play from the ps4, looking at specs of the z3 it seems no different to my z2 ,well z3 is clocked at 2.5 instead of 2.3ghz, but apart from that the differences seem to be cosmetic.

I am more than a bit annoyed about remote play being included, one of the reasons i bought a z2 (not only reason, but a main one) was sony's way of making there products connect to each other. I remember the ps3 controller worked first with an xperia phone before others. My phone isnt even 6 months old yet and instead of getting features added through updates it seems like sony are keeping these features to sell there next handset.

In all fairness tho, its only remote play and a few tweaks to audio player that make the z3 any different to the z2

Well mate, they have to compete with others, we are all whining about this 6 month old cycle, I myself as well whine about it,
but they cannot show up with nothing at IFA knowing that Samsung is gonna present their Note 4. They are clearly trying to achieve best smartphone of the year thing, but I think they should have gone same as Samsung, in first half of the year the Z line, second half Ultra line maybe.
It's kinda annoying when they are upgrading the same model twice per year mostly because no new things, especially now this z3.
They probably modded camera now how it should be, added HQ to speakers and remote control for ps4, I doubt we will see those things in z2 officially. But then again, we are being late with 4.4.4 with a good reason, most probably because those features, or at least some of them, are gonna hit z2.

And I'm being sceptic with this new IP rating. It's making me think what has changed, and does z2 suffer from building issue regarding waterproof, more and more I see threads about phone leaking water inside even tho I never experienced that, but that's mostly because my device was only few times exposed to heavy rain, but never dunked in water, nor it will ever be since it slipped out of my hand and I had to replace back cover.

i couldnt agree more.... if they want a 6 month cycle they should be doing it with 2 models, what annoys me is the specs are essentially the same, this isnt a new sony phone...... its an overclocked z2 with a few new features which claim to be exclusive but probably wont even need to be modified to work on z2.

Have you tried with 1234? That is usually the default for some bluetooth devices other one is 0000.
LG G2X (rooted, retired)
Samsung Galaxy S2 (Unlocked and rooted, retired)
Sony Xperia Tablet (Stock rom, awesome device)
Sony Xperia Z2
