Similar thing happened to me... Its really bad... I have given it to service center and waiting since last 21 days to get it back. They are charging nearly 25% of original price to replace this piece of so called high quality glass.

I have used many high-end smartphones from many companies but never have such bad experience.
Other phones don't break in such small falls, even they survive much more impact then what Z3 can.
My touch screen (LCD is intact) got broken and they are charging me 25% of my purchase price for this sub standard plain glass.
I have observed that SONY don't have any repeat customers, people buy there phones and after there bad experiences they get rid of it ASAP. I will be doing the same as soon as I get it back from service center ( I am waiting for it since last 21 days )
SONY really needs to think about it.

My sources - Have you ever visited a repair centre and seen some of these phones that owners claim have cracked on their own or are you spouting your mouth off and are trying to sound clever
Few months back, I too don't believe in self cracking screens. But after buying SONY Z3, I think it is possible.
My Z3 touch screen didn't cracked on itself; but it did't withstand fall of 10cms on vinyl floor.
So unless you have used other companies product you will not understand the meaning of minmum duriability.

No good trying to **bleep** someone off who helps people on here.Under most vinyl floors lies concrete,If I sat on my ray bans and broke them,it's my fault not ray bans.I have not seen one post on here were someone has said the phone had a case on when its been dropped,fell off a table or fell off a wall.But I do notice everyone carries a tape measure with them.My suggestion is don't buy a tape measure buy a decent case
Cool Down Man.
Tell me, if you are sitting on the floor with phone on your lap and it slip's to the floor... do you need a measuring tape to understand the fall... or do you need to learn rocket science to understand the quality of glass used in touch screen and back panel or flaw in design?
My point is there are many highend phones in market which are much more durable then Z3 under same condition.
Also, I tried to buy decent case on first day itself, but you know what shop keepers told me (I visited atlest 50 shops).... there are very few buyers for these phones... so they don't stock it... I checked for the case in 3 metro cities.. and online also... but it was not available at that time...
So just chill and don't try to gag the real issue.

Amazon have plenty of goodc cases for Z3.As for rocket science go google previous phones that are made out of glass and metal.
So you are saying that Z3 is SAME as other non reliable (faulty designed products with substandard parts) previously launched by SONY and other companies, and SONY have nothing good to offer.
For backcases, I have said that it was not available AT THAT TIME, I know that, now it is available online. But now, I am not interested in this phone which is just a showpiece, so will be selling it as soon as I receive it after the repairs.
It will be good if people like you and me give true feedback to SONY so that it can improve there product quality and design.
And let someone from SONY respond on some tough questions like
- What material/standard they use to prepare the glass panel?
- What is maximum value of stress / drop / Impact these touch panel can withstand, and have they tested it?
So my friend Mr. Junior just relax and let SONY answer these questions.
