i SINCERELY THINK Z3+ IS THE BEST LOOKING FLAGSHIP AND THE MOST PRACTICAL ONE TOO.s6 looks like iphone 's daughter.g4 looks hideous -seriously the back of g4 with that elevated central ridge looks really hideous.must say-z3+looks awesome. the sides look very good.besides a fullhd display on 2930mah looks more perfect than a GIMICKY AND NO-USE 2K ON A 2500MAH.and the world is so GIMMICK driven nowadays-otherwise how would samsung and lg get the courage to put a absolutely useless 2k screen on a 5incher phone...????SONY really deserves kudos for doing what it believes is right rather than bleating -2k?mehh too.
I wonder if Tmobile USA will get this handset. I wanted to test out the Z3 in the store. The display unit would not turn on because the lock was on the power button. The only way I would buy a Sony phone is if I really get back into gaming and purchase a PS4. Then I could see the use for this phone. I may just end up buying a Sony tablet if I do get into gaming again.
No Wireless Charging?? That's a drawback. Most of the phones nowadays come with built-in wireless charging or at least can be cover-changed with a wireless charging cover.

Why are you worried about the rear panel of the phone? The Xperia Z3 and the s6 survived in drop tests without a crack. All phones will crack if you keep dropping phones. So, get a z3+ and a good case and don't be careless.

Really, are you crazy? Those old phones didn't have a Proper CPU that could be even compared to a computer. Phones of these days are capable- have you seen the graphics of some games that can be found on the app store? They are incredible. Every device heats up when put under load. In computers, the CPU also heats up, but air coolers are placed above the processor to prevent overheating. So, when you play games on a PC, then system runs hotter, and the fans spin faster. In the case of smartphones, when you do some intensive task, they heat up a little. Nothing wrong with that.

You consider smart phones as a gimmick. Have you taken a pixel density test, before you conclude that 2k or 1080p are unnecessary for a phone? Go 10 years back. Did we have phones at least with a 720p display? Did we have a dual, quad or octa core processor phone, that can be compared with computers? Did we have 8MP cameras? Did we have capacitive touchscreen phones? All have the same answer-no. Did anyone of us expect a octa core processor with frequencies of 2GHZ + 1.5GHz, coupled with a 3gb LPDDR4 RAM and a 1080P display, all inside a 6.9mm thin body? Technology is advancing at a fast rate. So, you can expect a smartphone to come with speakers better than your w995.
[deleted post]there is a limit to portable power and latest mobiles prove it as they can get very warm. Remember the old days when mobiles were being cool even after playing games for hours? This proves that you, the customers are blinded by high numbers and not durability. Just look at the trends out there. 2k isn't needed, 1080p isn't needed on that matter on mobiles. But the mindless masses are obsessed with high numbers. 20mp aren't needed either on a mobile device. Just put a 10 or 12mp big camera sensor, alongside a perfect camera software and you'll get astonishing results. See what I mean?
Plus if a device get to that power expect it to burn the moment you turn it on.
Anonymous, 27 May 2015Have you heard how loud the Z3+ speaker is?I'm talking about Z3 here don't I? And as I said, a thin device just CANNOT produce loud and bassy sound. S6 doesn't, M9 doesn't and G4 doesn't. All are just average compared to my W995, which still remains top in it's music class since 6 years ago in both loudness and heavy, crisp sound. Anyway don't get your hopes too high for Z3+ because it's still a Z3.
Sony 4 Life, 27 May 2015What do you think bout z3+ benchmarks?? On antutu bench for example...?! Z3 has approx. 43000... moreWell Snapdragon 810 had some performance and heating issues, in the first waves. Now though they have made improvements, so it wont heat so much and from what I have seen the iproved 810 can do around 63k in antutu.
Also whitepaper states sRGB 130% screen with max 700 nits :-o
50% brightness of that is still 350 nits, more than most out there...
DenisXD, 27 May 2015Seriously?? Get to a store and check what's good and what's not yourself.I won't be asking if z3+ is in stores. Even in official global site, it is just mentioned "coming soon". plus, if z3+ uses glass for back part, i'm afraid it might crack when drop. M9 aluminium body is stronger than any other phones. Thats what i'm comparing.

This is just a slight improvement on the Z3 and the bad aspect of the whole thing is to reduce the battery life. if anything at all, they should have maintain the battery life as the predecessor. Sony should do something about this before releasing the Z3+
