I got my new Xperia Z3 today and after it fell off the table twice in half an hour I wondered why. I discovered that the Z3 has a very smooth finish and it creates some type of static electricity pocket and makes the device move if it is put on a smooth surface life a smooth table with a plain peace of paper. this video is not a trick. I kept the screen on so you can see that I am not calling the phone on vibrate.

Probably you should level your table.

Nothing new really. Must have been a slip system somewhere in there.

It is true. I can confirm this...as the fact that I broke my Z3 screen by it moving on it's own....cursed fate.....

I spent my money for a new phone to replace it. Went and tried out several phones...nothing could play music as good as Z3. I ended up with Z3 tablet compact. Tmobile US networks is working out flawlessly.

Buy a cover for your Z3. It deserves it....don't be like me

After hearing of the guy whose phone slid off while ringing and shattered, a while back I have become a bit more careful. I guess we can't take it for granted that we can leave it anywhere lol. A few must suffer so the rest can realize.

Thankfully I have no damage to my phone but when it first happened in was very freaked out. I have tested it out on other surfaces and maybe it's just conincedence but most of the
Surfaces in my house move my phone. Especially my material couch.

That's true, Z3 back is ridiculously slippery, that's why I bought a foil for the back, it's still slippery but no way near the level it was without it
