3.0 out of 5 stars why do amazon put the headline at the bottom when you're submitting reviews???, 21 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
UPDATE: I've stopped bothering to use either due to inherent design fault (relying on a small magnetic surface area to align the two pins).
The cable comes out of position too easily (on desk or in car) and just too fiddly to line up the pins for the dock - cover or not, using adaptors/spacers or not.

I DOUBT YOU'LL FIND ANY BETTER: any issues are generic to Sony's original poor interface design (using a couple of pins to connect current and hold on by small magnet), though there are missed opportunities to improve (spring load the gap in the charging platform and modify the shape of the 'plug' to fit the phone's 'socket' better? Manufacture 'upside-down' so cord goes up above phone, out of your hand's way). Saves knackering your USB flap seal and does work, but inherently tricky fit.
Comes with adaptors for Z3 and Z3 compact to help fit into the gap of the charging platform, but no good unless you have uselessly think cover (i.e. too thin to protect against bumps) - this is where spring-loaded, and bevelled/V-shaped gap would have helped, but a few layers of tape should do it. Magnet on base is strong enough to keep it attached when you lift phone - base is so light, needs weight.
Comes with short USB to micro USB cable (in case you use base close to USB port or mains charger I guess).
The cable charger is thin and flexible wire. Light is blue to show it has current, red when attached and charging, changes to show fully charged (though your phone also has LED for that). Magnet strong enough to physically stick when lifting for call, but can disconnect easily in use, in Car etc. and the cord gets in the way when holding in left hand (all inherent problems that all other models will suffer).
At least I know not to bother buying more cables (for Car, Home, Work).

5.0 out of 5 stars Child proof! Tab has been dropped onto hard stone ..., 21 Jan. 2015
Child proof! Tab has been dropped onto hard stone floor flat on it's back, and no sign of damage. Rubberised construction, reinforced corners and the back is a layered design - seems to have worked :) It's a shame to add bulk to such an elegant Tab, but if you need protection to go with performance then this is your case.

Xcessor Vapour Flexible TPU Case for Sony Xperia Z3. Transparent

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my purposes. Superior to the cheaper alternatives, 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hard/firm 'gel', like they all are/I've bought for all handsets. Perfect fit. The lip keeps phone secure but is well of the display and just proud enough to keep screen raised from small grit when phone placed face down.
Semi-transparent: back half translucent, front clear. The resulting small seal produced is no issue.
Gives the Z3 just enough extra grip and weight to hold it more securely compared to without cover.
There's a hole for accessing each port (except SIM/SD) - smoothly moulded not just cut e.g. the power button is protected from accidental use but enough gap to operate comfortably.

3.0 out of 5 stars No quality collectors model but Son likes it., 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Same quality as from a £2/$2 'everyone wins a prize' stall at a local Fair. Yet my Son loves it (hence 3rd star awarded).
Has some detail and mainly metal. Being able to remove the plastic roof might be good for story telling.
Otherwise, Everything pops of too easily: headlights, plastic bottom half of opening front doors, door handle. A dab of glue will.fix.though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for blockbuster fans - there is some story and art to this., 28 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Godzilla [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Enjoyed it even though I don't usually like 'Hollywood Blockbusters'. Well built story and cinematography plus exciting actions scenes and not too cliched.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chris Morris fans will enjoy it, but it just works as a flavour ..., 25 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Four Lions (Amazon Instant Video)
Genuinely laughed out loud throughout. It's a study of foolishness and not aiming to offend any particular group (in case you wondered). Chris Morris fans will enjoy it, but it just works as a flavour of British spoof with a topical background.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor sound, noisy between tracks, 2 Jun. 2014
I bought this the day they became legal. It all operates OK but the sound needs plenty of tonal adjustment (treble and bass on your stereo) and plenty of noise audible during quiet or silent points in the music.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much fundamental yet to be fixed., 25 Dec. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not a 'professional' complainer but this just doesn't work as delivered or with the fixes available so far online: hangs as soon as it tries to produce 3D graphics on 1 year old HP Pavilion laptop (meets the required spec).
I'm sure a major patch will fix much, but for now it just doesn't work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Make it from your existing random Lego bricks, 3 Nov. 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
The point of Minecraft is that it's a pixilated world - very much like the collection of random Lego[or compatible generic] bricks you already own.
If you insist, note that Lego stores have this for about £35.
