    White Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

    Obtained as an insurance replacement in August 2016, with the main board replaced under warranty in January. Always kept in a case and with a tempered glass screen protector on. I'd describe the condition as basically "as new".

    Boxed with unused charger. 3 Sony magnetic charging docks included with various inserts (may not be 3 full sets of inserts).

    Looking for £120 plus delivery:
    - £5 Hermes 3 day
    - £10 RMSD (Monday)
    - £15 RMSD (Saturday)

    Alternatively collect from Portishead (or Winchester tomorrow/Sat am)

    Edit 25/6: clarify that only the main board was replaced in January, not the whole device.

    Okay, looking at the receipt for the job in January, that appears to be only a main board swap (along with new IMEI) so, as the phone was in perfect condition when we sent it in, I thought it was just a device swap. The phone itself was an insurance replacement from August when my wife dropped her old one in the Marina.

    I have the Sony repair form for January and the NatWest insurance email for August. Let me know if you'd like me to see them.

    Warranty expires on 2/7.

    Main board was swapped out due to GPS lock issues. Not had a problem with GPS since the board swap.

    Thanks for your prompt reply and clarifying the situation about the phone. I am a bit wary of buying a phone that had a malfunction after just a few months but would take a risk for £70. Would you consider this offer?

    I wouldn't, sorry. To be clear, the main board, which I assume houses the gps chip, was replaced. Since then the phone has been used regularly as a satnav with not even a hint of the issue.

    The malfunction was actually immediate (since August) and very obvious but I took a while to look at it (it was my wife's phone) and so went through warranty instead of the supplier. GPS wouldn't lock for more than about 2 seconds.

    Thanks for further info, it certainly helps to build up a picture of what's on offer. I think the malfunction the handset suffered, though fully fixed as you say, is probably the reason there have been no other responses on this forum.

    I'm not sure I'd go much higher than £70, but am interested in what you would be prepared to accept?

    Was it purchased sim free? How long does the battery last?

    It is an unlocked insurance replacement with no network splash screen. Battery gets through a normal day of mixed use for my wife

    My wife's z3 has started misbehaving, worst thing it does is cancel calls halfway through! If you can guarantee this is 100% working, I'll offer £90.

    100% working and I'm happy to have it sent back if you think otherwise. Get up to £100 and we have a deal.

    Sounds fair.

    Ok to test for a week?? Wife is very careful with phones and has a z3 ringke fusion case so it'll be safe. I find generally with all Sony phones they're either really buggy or absolutely fine, so it'll be obvious fairly quickly if it's a good un.

    I'll PM you when I get home if all above is agreeable.
