iPhone 6 vs. Galaxy Alpha vs. Xperia Z3 Compact: Three kings

13 October 2014
We're looking for the best phone with a sub-5" screen. At a time when the best features seem to only come with the largest display, there's a strange, almost rebellious feel to it. No need to tell you, we're enjoying it. The Apple iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact are...

I have my iPhone 5 since april 2013, that's 44 months and it still works pretty good (only one mic and lower volume button are defective and would also still be good if I treated it better). I could easily last another one or two years with it but I will change it for iPhone 7. But I know someone who will use his one until it dies completely. He thought it will last 2 years, he has it longer than me and still no signs of age. iPhones are just the most durable phones out there

"...Still, the glass back is impractical - not as cool as metal, as easy to scratch as plastic and it shatters too (unlike metal and plastic)...."

If "glass" scratches easy then it is NOT glass but hardened plastic. Real glass doesn't scratch (easy). Iphone 4/4s which have real glass backs don't scratch "easy" and thus Xperia's should be the same with regards to scratch resistance. But alas I have a Z1compact and indeed the backpanel scratches fairly easy... thus IMHO it is not real glass.

For me Sony Xperia Z3 is the best because it can last up to 14 months but after this months, my cellphone won't working properly. It always hangs and it won't charging anymore but still its the best when compares with the two others that's not lasts long like this phone.

Samsung Alpha Is The Best Phone In The World

You have to give a credit to Sony. Phones are not their number one products, but they made them great!
Z3 compact is realy nice phone and i hope it will last long as my Arc S... that phone still works but i got Z3C so i dont use it. Anyway... Been using Sony phones for 7-8 years, and they never failed me.
