Re: Z Cracked Screen

I have a Z3C and it has cracked from the microphone also. It looks like a spiders web and then cracked down the screen causing the top half of the phone to be unresponsive and can't unlock my screen. I had a Sony phone years ago and was very pleased with the quality. I am very unhappy with it now. And I'm also very unhappy about having to send it back to Sony with a fault that they are very aware of, with no guarantee of getting it fixed free of charge. Never ever will I be a Sony customer again. They should take these phones off the market and give a full refund to customers who have already purchased their faulty phones. Otherwise they will lose alot of customers. Another problem with the phone is the side opening that has the charger has fallen off. Bit of a joke really. Back to Apple me thinks! Watchdog are on their case, so watch this space!

It's not Sony's problem that you can't hold tight a phone in your hands. Or the compacts are too smalls for your hands ? Really dude Slightly smiling Face

Re: Z3 Compact Screen cracked

4 screens in under 1 year, 1st one cost £100 to replace, cracked it a second time that cost £75, 2 hour after collecting it it cracked again, that was done free of charge, bought the last screen and digitizer from replace base and fitted it myself, if it cracks again its going in the bin, the phone itself is fast and easy to use, apart from the money i've spent repairing the price of it new was a bit expensive but I like the look and feel of it, will think again about buying my nest phone which will be pretty soon, sure the screen will crack again very soon.

Re: Z3 Compact Screen cracked

I don't need to tell you what happened to my z3c nor to post pics of it: everything is already covered in this thread:

Z3C SCREENS ARE FRAGILE & EXPENSIVE

that's a shame and the z3c is my first and last Sony phone, I'll go back to LG

 

Sony should provide better screens AND should admit the problem, either giving low-cost reparations or mounting better screens during reparations

Re: Z3 Compact Screen cracked

Im so frustrated, my phone screen cracked, my faultas i droped it. Was surprised, as my z and z2 fell much further an harder with no issues, wrote it off as bad luck. Had the display repaired at a almost 1/2 the price of the phone, only to have the screen crack by it self. Used the phone, no issues, placed it on my bed side table, charging received a message and found i could not share a number. Turned the phone in and off, withthe issue persisting. Took a while to see the hair line crack. I shared pictures of family bowling, just before i put the phone on charge, with display region working, only explication ihave is that the screen craced by it self. Will sony replace my display. Hope so as the phone suffered no trauma.
