I got a brand new one a month ago with even lower price in just about $290.
How and where to manually download any firmware of Z3+?.. For eg if I wanna go back to lollipop...
Is this phone still worthy for a user who need a good camera phone (both front & rear), moderate battery life (3.5-3 hours screen) ??? for price $330
Still there are problems with the camera. Replaced it in march 2016 and now in September i have to do it again. Going to hang on to my z3+ until Samsung S8 launches.
I'm buying this in 2016...does it still have overheating problems or did Sony fix this already?
after the new updates we can use 4k recording up to 20 min before the mobile heats up, and these is not sonys faults, its due to snapdragon 810
beno das, 19 Sep 2016Some of they telling that when shooting in 4K . Suddenly phone will heat & camera turn off... moreDid some test with data network on and set to edge and I also forgot to turn off the NFC which might factor in the end results:
So yeah, this phone's not for a lengthy 4K recording. I only managed to get 2mins and 43secs on the first test using micro sd as storage and then tried again for the 2nd time after cooled down and already done with just 2mins and 40secs even after I switched to internal storage. However if you do recordings in 1080p or 720p, I can guarantee that this will never happen.
Someone actually did like 30mins of 4K recording with this phone though I'm not sure how the exact test condition looked like.

The longest 4K recording you can do with the Z3+ with the latest software update is 30mins but only if you use internal memory as storage (using micro sd causes the devices to heat a lot faster). However I strongly not recommending 4K for daily recordings because you're gonna miss the awesome SteadyShot that is available when recording in 1080p.

Suddenly phone will heat & camera turn off... so my question is this. . How long we can take video in 4K (befor cam turn off by heat) ?
I am using these mobile from past one year with no issues, it's heating up, dont worry wont be into flames like samsung galaxy note 7.
Xperia z3+ has octacore processor and due to snapdragon 810 its heating up
AnonD-586193, 17 Sep 2016Just replaced your phone. I've used it for three months and throw it. This z3 plus sucks. I've... moreVery sorry to hear that although I have completely different experience in mine. Daily use is very smooth, gets around 5 hours of daily SOT (4 hrs with heavier use), it's still heats during heavy workload but the so called "overheating" issue starts to fade away with every day passed (not sure how but it isn't as hot as it used to during the first week of usage).
XZ is undoubtedly the best you can get from Sony right now but currently you'll have to pay for the full launch price. A Z3+ dual only costs me $290 brand new last month and I wouldn't pass such bargain (and it's worth it), plus it will get Nougat anyway.
suresh, 16 Sep 2016z3+ heating problem, battery also drainingJust replaced your phone. I've used it for three months and throw it. This z3 plus sucks. I've compared this phone with z2,z3 and z5 and it's heating capability is tremendous and also batt drain so fast,Even i updated it to marshmallow still no avail. I think this phone now is phased out here in UAE.
QWERTY, 11 Sep 2016Hi, I'm interested in buying the Sony Xperia Z3+ but I'm having a hard time in searching where... moreNow it's not available here in middle east cuz it's not a good phone you think,too much heating issue and fast battery draining compare to z3 and z5.Go with the xperia ZX, that's a lot better.
suresh, 16 Sep 2016z3+ heating problem, battery also drainingTry limiting background data, that works most of the time at least when you're not on wifi.

MichaelA., 09 Sep 2016I like it but doesn't have fingerprint sensor.Fingerprint is available on the Z5, except for the US version.
