It's that not really matter about Overheating issues.
Since I using the phones come cool down faster after play games and get overheating.
Be wise to use.
Owned this phone after my Xperia Z3 replacement, made a huge mistake, far one of the worst phone i ever owned in my ownership!
The phone its ok, but the Snapdragon 810 is to blame,and Sony themselfs never adressed the thermal managment into SD810, thus overheating like crazy, even when recording at 1080p it couldnt get passed at 1 min mark, not to mention other things such as gaming and watching youtube, would always prompt an overheating message, something you can remedy with Stamina Mode, but definitely not worth the hassle.
If you are on a budget, i recomend to stay away from the Z3+ or any SD810 device, got for an 820 or even 821 like the 3T or XZ, since they are more thermal efficient and better thermal management
Android 7.1.1 only made the phone worst, couldn´t stay with it more than a month, changed to a Xperia X, and now rocking a XZ ready to a XZ1 or XZ Premium soon.

I have to say avoid this phone they never fixed the overheating issue with the snapdragon processor. The phone works fine for 5-10 mins on android 7.0.1 but it slows down and gets laggy when it gets too "hot". Plus the camera doesnt work if it is overheating which caused for me to loose some good photo oportunities.

Only issue I have is sometimes it tends to heat a bit but not that bad till u can't hold the phone. Other than that I like the design, the built which is sturdy and the size which is neither too big nor too small. Overall good phone and reliable. No lag and call quality is great.
Anyone still using Z3+? I am planning to buy this one since I saw it for sale like $120. I just don't want any regret after buying it.

My XPERIA Z3+ is still performing fine, much better than how it performs when out of the box thanks to ANDROID 7.1.1, a huge reduction in overheating issues. Besides, do u have the right to stop people from buying this smartphone? This is a person's own perspective, some like it some may not like it. Do u want a person to say "Dude, stop using this smartphone, sell it" and what happens if that was your favorite smartphone? Never thought of that eh? How immature
This is terrible phone with overheating issure as such life time photo shooting opotunities dismisser ....
All of you have this phone should get money back....
