I picked it for him at christmas because he wanted a good durable smartphone. I won't lie to you I like it, but it isn't as loud and as impressive as Z3 and everything matters to me. I want a phone that is great all around. After the military that I start in a week, and next year another phone will maybe catch my eye, but for now Z3 got my attention. I also checked online for cases and such and there is a very durable case called armourdillo encase. A beast of a case man. Maybe next year Z5 or M10 get my attention but if they don't I'll get a Z3, and it will be cheap as well.
Maybe I didn't need a smartphone and I wanted one who fits in my pocket? Plus I can leave it on flat areas sideways to take a group photo? Plus it had everything I needed for so long and smartphones were at their early years and I was certain there would be many issues? Very low speaker volumes, very bad battery life, bad cameras and on top of it they were very, very sensitive. But with the following years things got improved fortunately. Now we see waterproofing for crying out loud! And phones like Z3 that even though it's waterproof it has almost everything W995 has. Loud speakers, great camera and many emulators for playstation and gameboy games. And with the right case it will be a beast. For now Z3 is my choice, not Z3+ because it has worse camera and overheats easily.

Asker, 25 Jun 2015Thanks for the reply. But aww, even the S6 already uses IMX240.Your on the incorrect post... SONY Z3 plus post!
Asker, 25 Jun 2015Thanks for the reply. But aww, even the S6 already uses IMX240.And mfgs the 240 sensor... Let me guess??!
1) How good is the battery? will the charge last one day for intensive use?.
2)Screens of most of Sony phones break easily if phone falls from say even 2feet height.Hope it's improved in this phone.Kindly provide feedback
AnonD-405302, 23 Jun 2015Does the heating problem solved or we have to wait for 3 or 4 months for the update to solve t... moreHere, a guy bought it on e bay, did a 4K video recording overheat test: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OFw0y5ZeeYs ..... No overheat issue on Z3+ ... It recorded over 18 min of 4K... It heats up just as all other flag phones out there.... Goes to say how many scam videos with preproduct unit and different settings exist out there ....
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+.

The ratings only show us xperia users are overall most satisfied with devices we use... Whilst other devices fail in that regard, and are just not as good...
