Since the phone was bought in the USA the warranty only apply in the US, you will have to send it in, if you don't care about warranty you could repair it yourself

Flimsy Camera Flash

I am currently using Xperia Z3, and I want to point out to a serious concern about low quality of camera flash provided with almost all Xperia flagship phones, as I have faced same issue with Xperia Z and xperia S which I owned earlier.

I feel ashamed when I take pics at night e.g. in a party with my friends, as the flashlight just seem to be laughing at your face. It can hardly illuminate the faces which are sitting just in front of you. You cannot remotely compare camera flash of ANY xperia flagship phone, with the likes of Samsung camera flash, which is super bright.

Highly disgusted at the decision of Sony to provide a namesake flash in a flagship phone. I feel ashamed when I see all flagships of competitors having great flash, and even phones costing one fourth having a better flash. Why cant Sony include dual flash? Why cant Sony make their flash powerful, so that atleast you can click a respectful pic during night. The flagship just turns into an useless piece when you use its flash to click pics at night or low light condition.

This is my LAST xperia phone, unless Sony provides a powerful flash. Enough of embarresment by the hands of Sony.

Are you listening Sony?
