My Sony Xperia Z3 Compact self-destructed

Nooooooo….. Aaarrrghhhhhh!

My beloved Sony Xperia Z3 compact (perfect size, water proof, and AMAZING battery life) decided to give up on me today. I’m NOT a happy camper 🙁

Apparently it take one perfectly timed itty bitty drop to make the Z3 Compact completely self destruct. Lesson learned – I’ll reluctantly use covers from now on!

I’m actually kind of impressed – a 50 cm drop (2 feet) made the screen crack (and breaking the touch display, rendering the phone useless), crack the back panel AND the frame. I guess it’s an “all or nothing” thing…

…actually it wasn’t a drop per se – it slid of an surface, due to the Xperia Z3 Compact annoyingly slippery glass back panel.. Grrrrr….

Dear Sony Xperia Team

Why oh WHY have you made this excellent phone with an Ultra Slippery McSlipster glass back panel – it literally slides off every single surface I put it on. Why not an anti-slippery back surface that DOESN’T CRACK? I suggest the same back material as on the Z4 tablet – it is lighter,thinner, doesn’t crack and doesn’t slide off everything.

So – what Z3-Compact-similar-sized, non-Apple,  Android Device should I go for now?

Who am I kidding – I’ll get the exact same model again – and an thin anti-slippery cover 😉
