Wow, people are really fast in creating separate threads for Indian users. I just came here to see if it was created and voila, it's there.

Ok, now back in topic. Hmmm... Looks like a worthy update for me from Z1. Hope it doesn't cross the 50k mark! Price it at 45k and Sony will hit the bulls eye. Also, I'm in US right now and I won't be getting it from T-Mo for sure. So have to rely on Sony store for the unlocked one.

As expected, Z2 users will be pissed off. Chill out, it was expected.

Yeah for sure...being a Z2 owner i kinda feel little bad!!!:p:p
But about price lets hope they dont cross 50K because Z2 almost did it and maybe Sony will go beyond this time...competing iPhone 6.
I would want it below 50K..lets hope for the best....:fingers-crossed::fingers-crossed::fingers-crossed:

Well some sources reveal that the price of the phone will be 49999 INR in India if this is true it will be good for Sony as they are not crossing 50K mark as Z2 is still quite new and packs almost all features of Z3.... which is currently selling for 44999 INR.
It would really be good to bind a smart cover SCR24 and NC headset if possible the Smartband Talk and they already screwed the ADP so at least some compensation for that.

Hi. Was planning to shift from note 3 to z3 and had some qs for z2 users wrt :
- stability and speed of UI (any random reboots/data loss?)
- is the screen truly shatterproof or is it just a film on the screen
- does the sound 'break' at highest volume on the speaker?
Any other comments welcome
Thx

--z2's UI is quite smooth
--not as strong as gorilla glass 3
--sound is ok not as good as htc one boom sound

my suggestion is its better get z2 rather than z3 bcos z2 price will be lower and performance will be similar to z3 in all important aspects or else this time exynos 5433 A57/A53 cortex based note 4 which will be released in india seems to be really good even with disabled 64bit support

Thx but I need a change from Sammy. Was also considering the one m8, lg3 and xiaomi mi4
Dont bother about Xiaomi its UI is worst to adapt..
Z2 or Z3 bestt choice but if you want boom sound you can go for M8 but due to boring launcher from HTC which is monochrome ..and doesnot stand a chance against SONY's UI and themes...

I really hope sony does not mess up the release as it did with Z2. I'm talking about faulty phone manufactured which were later refused to be replaced as well.
Yes you are right about Z2 i faced the same issue with my Z2 they removed the ADP policy right after the Z2 was a month old and refused to replace the faulty phone.
Also if they price high due to iPhone stupidity then bad news for SONY

If you had to list out any negatives of the z2 what would they be?
I'm trying to convince myself that the z3 has the best specs that I need (mainly photos, videos, emails and maps) but keep on hearing comments from friends " you're buying a sony phone?"
Boom sound is nice to have but not essential for me.
Also important is battery time - both discharging and charging time. I see that z3 has a hi speed USB 2 port but not USB 3. Wonder how much difference that would make in charging and data transfer.

Dont bother about battery life if you have Z2 it has the best battery backup...also if you want to buy Z3 you can.
and charging doesnot bother...

Sony center in Mumbai says 25th Sept release.
They had a z2 demo piece with a matte screen guard that just destroys the screen quality - and refuse to take it off. Strange!

Nope. But going by indications looks like around 50k. Initial hands on reviews are very good - check phone arena. Gsmarena has reviewed only the compact so far.

    Moto replaces cracked screens for free, but for that be sure to buy directly from Moto, my uncle (Hyderabad) did not and he cracked his screen, now has to pay. HTC also replaces shattered screens in first 6 months but check if they offer that in India.
    Its about their policies..
    But when your 50K device gets damaged without your fault..you can understand how it feels...
    But when a 15K device gets damaged anyhow you are able to accept that...its same with me now...From next time onwards no rushing to the store in the first place...damn..u sony..

    Can anyone know how to adjust ISO manually.
    In manual mode i saw highest ISO as 800. But z3 supports 12800 ISO . Is it only in superior auto mode?
    Also anyone tried 4K vdeo max how many minutes u successfully shoot.
    I got 6 minutes after that i intentionally closed. it is 2.3GB

    High sensitivity mode gives auto 12800 iso u dnt have to set manually
