I have a z3 compact purchased unlocked in the US. I like the phone a lot aside from one extremely irritating feature: the volume warning. The warning crops up randomly while I'm listening to audio, and it reduces the volume drastically until I unlock the phone, dismiss the warning, and reset the volume where I would like it.
This is really, really maddening, and it doesn't even make sense with Bluetooth audio devices. I almost exclusively use bluetooth devices for audio, and I crank the volume on the phone so that I can easily adjust the volume on my device. This means my audio isn't even loud! I could be out running, and suddenly I'm not able to hear my music. Or worse: I could be driving, using my bluetooth-to-FM converter. I'm listening for navigation directions, and suddenly I can't hear them. It's dangerous to look down and unlock my phone so that I'm able to hear my directions. (My car stereo is terrible, so I need the phone at high volume to hear music/navigation/anything without the audio crackling constantly.) What on earth are you guys thinking?
Please please PLEASE fix this for the Marshmallow update. This is easily the worst feature about the phone, and it's enough of a dealbreaker that it makes me hesitate to recommend it (or any other Sony phone, provided they all have this "feature"). If you need to have a volume warning, please show it ONCE when I *first* adjust the volume above the "safe" levels. Do not lower my volume randomly (since it isn't even loud in the first place)!

My wife decided to upgrade to Samsung and discard her Xperia, it turned out wise decision, so I am going to do the same soon all because we use our phones to listen to music while driving (which it is extremely dangerous with this sound notification that pop up even when using car's Bluetooth that distract you while driving just to set the volume high again) so long Sonny Xperia.
