Yes I just bought this phone despite all the overheating issues crap, and yes it is overheating when using android 5.0.1 and only when filming with your camera. It does not overheat while playing games or just browsing . However, after upgrading to android 6.0.1 it does not overheat anymore, they fixed that issue with upgrade, must have something to do with overclocked processors, they fixed that, and now i can fiolm 4k video for as long as i can, it wont turn off or overheat anymore. It will however be warm, but thats the thing when u have 8 processors inside :) enjoy
Does this phone still overheat? I am considering getting one but am afraid of the overheating issues
Indo Men, 28 Sep 2016prefer Xperia Z3+. waterproof, better Chipset, camera sensor size.....and also a dedicated slot for micro sd even on the dual sim model.
Don't buy Sony phone not money worth phone many things u don't get it in Sony phone Samsung is the best brand
Which one will be better among Huawei P9 lite and Xperia Z3+? in my region both are at same price. please help me out of this dilemma.
sharif-bd, 22 Sep 2016Is this phone still worthy for a user who need a good camera phone (both front & rear), mo... moreYes, both cameras are still pretty decent and I've been regularly getting 5hrs SOT (browsing, media social and lots of youtube streaming) with at least 12hrs of standby and still having 15% of charge left. I got a brand new one a month ago with even lower price in just about $290.
How and where to manually download any firmware of Z3+?.. For eg if I wanna go back to lollipop...
Is this phone still worthy for a user who need a good camera phone (both front & rear), moderate battery life (3.5-3 hours screen) ??? for price $330
Still there are problems with the camera. Replaced it in march 2016 and now in September i have to do it again. Going to hang on to my z3+ until Samsung S8 launches.
I'm buying this in 2016...does it still have overheating problems or did Sony fix this already?
after the new updates we can use 4k recording up to 20 min before the mobile heats up, and these is not sonys faults, its due to snapdragon 810
beno das, 19 Sep 2016Some of they telling that when shooting in 4K . Suddenly phone will heat & camera turn off... moreDid some test with data network on and set to edge and I also forgot to turn off the NFC which might factor in the end results:
So yeah, this phone's not for a lengthy 4K recording. I only managed to get 2mins and 43secs on the first test using micro sd as storage and then tried again for the 2nd time after cooled down and already done with just 2mins and 40secs even after I switched to internal storage. However if you do recordings in 1080p or 720p, I can guarantee that this will never happen.
Someone actually did like 30mins of 4K recording with this phone though I'm not sure how the exact test condition looked like.

The longest 4K recording you can do with the Z3+ with the latest software update is 30mins but only if you use internal memory as storage (using micro sd causes the devices to heat a lot faster). However I strongly not recommending 4K for daily recordings because you're gonna miss the awesome SteadyShot that is available when recording in 1080p.
