DenisXD, 27 May 2015Oh god.. what the hell is sony thinking? This is Z3 again, and thinner? Wtf?! More thin = ... moreSony just being sensible, i think. Sony are developing a new flagship design but they didnt want to combine their new design with a dud processor (810) so they have refreshed the Z3 and are holding back releasing their new flagship design with the Snapdragon 820 on board to probably either later this year or more likely in Jan 2016. I think by calling it a Z3+ Sony are simply acknowledging that this isnt a magor upgrade but a phone designed to compete with the M9 for market share. Heck Apple have been getting away withthe same trick for years. Sony needed to reatin visibility in the market place.

Come on Sony! Instead of releasing the same phone as last year just for the sake of releasing, improve your software. Give us new Android updates faster. Sort out the small lags here and there. Your hardware is capable of running Android smoothly. The south koreans even the chinese has past you guys.
[deleted post]lol. This could be for Z5 not S6. You forgot to say 200 Mp camera (16000P video recorder), Human like AI, babysitter and a sexy girl friend (or bf)

M9 has a tendency to make the music very crisp, which ruins the bass. on the other hand W995 has a more bassy output, more enjoyable to hear. Plus W995 is 25% louder than M9, and has far more music options. So with simple words, W995 is much louder, without trying much. here is my proof: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=594214190715635&id=100003811779138&refid=17&_ft_=og_action_id.594214197382301%3Atop_level_post_id.594214190715635&__tn__=C
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.
