Experience legendary sound
Block out the noise
Xperia Z3v comes with built-in digital noise-canceling technology that reduces exterior noise by up to 98% when paired with the headset MDR-NC31EM. The technology removes the lower-frequency parts of the noise, preventing the high-frequency part of it from reaching the ear. This way, a noisy bus or a busy shopping mall won’t stand in your way of a great listening experience.

(2) Inverted, anti-sound, wave
- High-Res Audio reduces distortion and noise at wider frequency ranges to reproduce high frequency sound in amazing detail. So every track you listen to resembles the sound quality as it was originally recorded in the studio.

The battery life is awesome; if I take it off the charging pad at 7:30 in the morning I can expect anywhere between 35% and 70% life remaining around 9pm, depending on my usage that day. I have gone 36+ hours without charging on multiple occasions.
The screen is great. I don't know what kind of glass it is, but it survived brilliantly without a screen protector for months until I dropped it onto a gravel covered truck floorboard, which unfortunately put some scratches in it. The resolution and brightness are also great.
I very much like the look and feel of the phone. The two sided glass feels good and slides into pockets nicely. I would consider the phone lightweight and sturdy. I have dropped it onto concrete from about 3.5ft and got away with only scratches from the bounce. It does flex if you try to bend it, but I routinely carry it in my back jeans pocket and have had no issues. As with all large phones it's sometimes difficult to hold it with my shoulder and get good proximity to both the earpiece and the microphone.
Having the ability to rinse dust off my phone and the piece of mind taking it boating or through the rain is a huge plus. My only complaint on this front is that the sealing door makes charging inconvenient and I would highly recommend a wireless charger (I use the "Anker Ultra-Slim Wireless Charging Pad for Samsung S6 / S6 Edge, Nexus 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 (2013), Nokia Lumia 920, LG Optimus Vu2, HTC 8X / Droid DNA and All Qi-Enabled Devices - Retail Packaging (Black)" with the Sony transformer and cable without issue)
It is still running Android 4.4 and has a locked bootloader. It can be rooted, but I was able to disable essentially all of the garbage apps Verizon pushes on you so I have not rooted mine. Cleaned up with everything disable the internal storage has about 25GB of free space. In the 7 months I've had the phone I've had it freeze about 5 times, but I think it was because of things I either disabled or installed and not the actual phone. I much prefer the Sony apps for pictures and music (vs Google).
The sound quality is noticeably better than my laptop and the soundcard in my PC when listening on my headphones. I can't offer comparisons to other phones though.
I would buy the phone again, both 6 months ago and now
It's been working properly so far as a smart phone, and for 250 $..it's a reasonable price for a "non-swimming" smart phone..lol
I also upgraded its operating system to the Lollipop OS initially , but i managed to downgrade to Kitkat OS, which is what it had on, when i had bought it. The reason to downgrade was the fact the phone was getting too hot , and its battery was getting drained fast.
Going back to Kitkat reversed all the problems i had gotten from the upgrade.
It's a good phone when using the Kitkat OS. The Otter rugged case fits well on it. The result is a good , sturdy phone, ..so far.
