Confirms my thoughts on why gsmarena's z3 final firmware posted the crappy scores that it did. After this update antutu scores go back up to around 53k+, obviously this for first run, but with repeated runs the deviation is no more than 10% (that's what I've heard from netizens who own the device anyway). Seems the launch firmware had some major bugs causing the overheating (sadly that's a bit typical for Sony, the original z and z2 suffered similar overheating issues on their very first firmware builds). Would be nice if gsmarena re-updated the scores with this new build, though I personally don't think they'd be able to find the time. In any case, I suggest whoever is interested in buying a z3+ to watch user reviews and comparisons off youtube as that will give you the most updated opinion.
So does that mean that the z3 will now be faster than the z3+? Since sony need to lower the clock speed of the snapdragon 810...
In the End its still a cool phone

Anonymous, 03 Jul 2015Because fanboys had started calling SD 801 and 805 last gen.. I even read comments for LG G4 s... moreThey are last Gen when compared to Exynos 7420 and Helio X 10 Gpu. Of course SD810 is also last Gen with all the throttling doing the rounds.
Remember When SONY was making Televisions(screens) cameras and music players and Game consoles to make our lives happier these new brands were not even born yet,so best screen+best music player+best camera+best Gaming console is now in SONY mobile products. Try SONY once and you will regret every moment you have used other brands in your life.
hot= soak into water. thats why sony made it waterproof.
fire dragons next target 1+2
look at this :) don't fix..
Hm. . . Seriously. . Water proof body is a realy useful thing for smartphones with snapdragon 810. . Because you can play games while keeping your phone under water. . Just like a liquid cooling system. . Huwaaah hah huh haaah. . Wuhih hah huh hih haaa. . Finally . . How is my laugh. .? :-)
PLease you didn't buy for that reason alone... haha
SONY announced a fix to issues so real Sony users do Not hold back on that alone!
Cloudy Jay Mordecai, 03 Jul 2015I don't know what all the fuss is about. I'll give you the best software update. "Dip ... moreSony has been making water proof phones since xperia Z in 2013. They didn't make z3+ the only water proof phone because it overheats...
I so hate Qualcomm for the SD810, as much I love the Z3 design snapdragon spoilt my deal. The only thing Sony can do is to throttle the CPU to 1.6/1.0GHz lol
Translation: We throttled the phone a little more so it won't overheat.
