Guys I'm thinking of getting a used Z3 for 19K. He says the phone is like new, no scratch at all. And he has the bull, box etc. 2 months warranty remaining.
I almost bought it, but is there anything I should check? I'm from Kerala and he's from Bangalore. So I cannot check the phone personally.

I would suggest u to physically see the device and make payment after u satisfied.

Anybody got 232 update? If yes, what are the changes? I haven't upgraded to even 200 cz of all the bugs that I've read about.

I got the notification for .200 update many days ago but I didn't update to that. Anyway, thanks for the reply. Will update to firmware that would be worth spending so much time.

Is it okay to use Sony Xperia Z3 (SOL26-Unlocked) in India?

Hello! I need to know whether should I buy Sony Xperia Z3 (SOL-26) or not.
I'm having 2 options with SOL26-Unlocked & D6603 of Xperia Z3 models but I'm confused as SOL26 is mentioned to be a Japanese version but in lesser price compared to D6603.
As I want to use this phone in India, is Japanese version okay to have?
Which one should I get so that I won't be having any problems regarding network bands in India or custom ROMs or other issues.
Please help!

Indian version is D6653.
And Japanese version is big no.
Also its always better to buy regional models, others might work but to be on safe side.
Also i dnt think u would be getting warranty fr those.

    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
