Andrew Tan, 20 Nov 2015Sony is silly on time schedule of product. They pushed out only waste of time as not much ... moreAny person that follows Sony knows Z3+ cell was for Japan, only edition when Released.

Sony change from single pipeline to dual at Z5 where eliminate the overheating issue. With only this reason already enough for picking up Z5 than Z3.
In between Z3+ and Z5 (exclude Premium edition) both having same resolution which is FHD.

They pushed out only waste of time as not much people will buy.
For your information.
My country Malaysia and neighbour Singapore skip Z3+ and direct sell Z5 series now.
drifter77, 18 Nov 2015Or better yet... stay away from Sony.Why? Just coz of z3+? sony makes some awesome phones, with your locig i should never buy LG or samsung just coz i had problems with their products? No man, i am not that big of a fanboy. If sony makes a great product i will buy, as for all others :P
Now? A little too late.. Z5 is already at stores around the globe so..
As for mentioning the overheating, I'm not surprised you did that but know its unprofessional.. and expected.. from you.

500th comment from me! :)
What a stupidity to begin selling a phone when the successor (Z5) is already released. Why would one buy the previous model - just because the Z5 isn't available? This is why Sony has such little market share in the US.
Why can't Sony and HTC join forces already? Obviously these two companies know close to nothing on how to advertise a product with overlapping specs and overpricing that it would actually make sense for them to merge.

I have been very interested in a Sony phone and was excited about the Verizon z4v because I really want a waterproof phone that won't die when it has coffee spilled on it or rain or splashed water. However, instead of buying a sony phone now, I am hoping the Samsung S7 goes back to being water resistant like the S3,S4, S5. If not, then I will look at a sony phone as my backup.
HigherPrimate, 18 Nov 2015100% agree. Or better yet... stay away from Sony.
seriously? what is the difference between the Z3+ and the Z5 just the camera, fingerprint sensor (which i think is very optional). aaand that is it, the processor is the same, the screen resolution of the Z3+ is better than the Z5 (can be seen in the reviews done here), the battery life is almost the same. if the Z5 is sold in the US it would fetch a price of $650 to $700 probably. so $500 i think it's totally worth it, considering the HTC One A9 is $500 and only has a mid range 617 Processor, 13 MP vs 20.7 Sony's sensor, bigger and longer battery life 2150 vs 2930 mAh with stamina mode included.
