Asker, 24 Jun 2015Is Sony using IMX220 sensor for this phone too?Correct, same as Z1/Z2/Z3.. IMX220. I believe it was said a while back that the IMX230 would be in short supply for the new phone as its new.
Bad time to buy a phone, between Lollipop (battery drain due to "Mobile Radio Active") and Qualcomm S810 (Heat issues), manufacturers have been really hard pressed. Better to wait till S820 based phones release.. in the second half of this year.
markus, 23 Jun 2015at sonys website it say it has ip certification of 65/68 what it means? That it is water and dust resistant for up to 1.5 meters and 30 mins
Yes i was using a xperia phone for about 15 months and never hanged in that time duration .now in august i will again buy next xperia phone.sony is best if compared with samsung,htc
Just got my Z3+ in IceGreen colour which will be replacing iPhone 6!
First impressions are fantastic- phone looks and feels great!
Yes, it's probably not the fastest on the market, neither most desirable, but it's definitely worth to have a look if you're on the market for new high end Android phone. I've been looking now to replace my iPhone 6 which is too boring for me and as I want a smart watch, I have no other option than switching to Android, as paying nearly 400 for the cheapest Apple watch is just too much for me- not because I couldn't afford that, it's just stupid,smart watches are on the very early development stage and every next generation will bring marginal improvements over the previous one, so 150-200 for a smart watch is alright, because you will be replacing it after year or so, but 400+ is just a way too much for that thing and complete waist of money.
But back to my Z3+ quick review.
So, as with every phone, there are some things to like, and very few I don't like that much. One of things I don't like- it heats up quickly, iPhone 6 was much cooler. Also, like most Android phones, this also comes with loads of crap from manufacturer- fully loaded with idiotic apps, just like any laptop with preinstalled windows.
The good things about this Sony- first and most important- I like the UI of Sony much more than any other, little apps and additional app menu with sorting and searching features are very appreciated from me.
Another big thing is the design- I like the design of this phone. Many pees their pants when sees S6 Edge- ok, it's individual and one of a kind, but for me it looks like more something from star wars theme, rocket science tech, never ever felt need for curved screen around edges...
Also a big point for Z3+ is the micro SD card slot, I can add 128GB for just 50 quid, isn't that great? It gives me 160GB total memory, that's fantastic!
Apart that, there are not many differences between any other hi end Android phone, everything is based on individual's preferences and app usage, and there shouldn't be any problem to run any app on this phone.
I must be forgetting something at the moment, but yeah, that was my quick review of Sony Z3+.

sony fans come here and vote the phone to make it the top number.it's so crazy that we accept that sony is better than Samsung or good htc or great iphone.it's just for children whose play with voting diameter. if look at chart you would se that sony are in top but in reality and usage that's vice versa.
Shpkepr is saying that sony cmpny will terminate after dec 2015 and all service centres will get close in 2016.is it true?

It has a curved back, 6.8mm at the thinnest and 11mm at the thickest. It has stereo speakers too, and its affordable. If you are not a power user, the Moto G's performance should be enough. Also, this phone has a good battery life.

Go to a store and check them by yourself, S6 seems smaller than it is because it's more rounded but I have to give the poin to Z3 here, it has stereo speakers.
