the phone screen is great... but the overheating and the throttling is just awful, and because of them the battery sucks .. on the upside the camera is good and the software is up to date
AnonD-265837, 21 Jun 2016this processor normally heats because its a high performance processor so dont worry with heat... moreYeah may be but try to instal cpu temp for exemple and you ll see how it heats and the heating is hotter than other phone.. Any way we dont have a choise we keep it cause it s a good phone thanks
Zamo, 21 Jun 2016And what about sound volume which better z3 or z3+z3 is louder
Hey friends, I am big fan of sony.
So now about my Xperia Z3+, I m fully satisfied. Just a heating issue while recording a 4k video.
And afterall u can't get such camera quality, awesome DSEE-HX High-res audio, S-force surrounding sound with front facing speakers, long battery life, stunning body design on other device and rest of all is awesome. U can understand if u ever use a better Xperia device.
U can't compare camera to any one,because Xperia is number one in dxomark.com rankings.
Heating issue during gameplay is obvious.
So I m proud to be a Xperia user. Xperia - experience the best of sony
If u need world class audio and outstanding camera quality then u should go for Xperia Z3+ or any other Xperia over 25k.
Nassim, 16 Jun 2016Still got probleme with heating,also ring time in incomin calls after update (6.0.1) plz what ... morethis processor normally heats because its a high performance processor so dont worry with heating while u play games .. if ur phone normally heats without any usage u may conceal sony service ..low ring volume is better after recent update ..its because of android 6 ..not with ur mobile hardware test ur speaker using service test so u may know ur hardwares are OK.. But in my point low ring volume due to android 6.0
Hisoka33, 09 Jun 2016Wat about the battery life after the update? Did it last longer? yeah its normal..am using 3g,wats app, facebook continuously for me it comes a day .. seems to be decent and if u dont use internet continuously it may extend more than a day ..

AnonD-549060, 15 Jun 2016Dear Arun,
I am on same version as u described 32.2.A.0.224. And i am having issue with my ... moreDear Aamar!
Initially before updating to Version 6.0 the ring volume is normal in lollypop. But after 6.0 update it drastically went very low i tried with sony service they said speaker is fine the issue is with Android 6. Now after update of 6.0.1 there i found there is improvement in ring volume not much but when compared to 6.0 now its far better but cant get that lollypop level.
Emon , 17 Jun 2016Xperia z3+ or Xperia M5 ....
What is best??
Please told me your kind suggestion .my suggestion is go for nexus 6p if you don't want your phone to lag.
nexus phones doesn't lag because they run pure android but in all other phones they have their own user interface so that is why all the android phones doesn't look the same for example samsung has its touch wiz,xiaomi has miui,sony has xperia ui,htc has sense ui....
What is lagging?
If the instructions btw processor and outputs i.e screen,sound.. doesn't match then you will see lagging.The mismatch occurs because the hardware and software are not optimized perfectly.In nexus,apple,nokia phones h/w nd s/w are perfectly optimized so there is no question of lagging.so the custom user interface over pure android causes phone to lag.
also the custom ui occupies ram nearly 1gb.so u will have only 2gb if u buy xperia z3 nd m5.so google for it more and take decision wisely.(the motorola phones also have pure android).
now coming to your question.
go for z3 plus
z3 plus have more specs than m5 and the main thing is that z3 plus have snapdragon where m5 has Mediatek.
advantage of snapdragon is that it has its own gpu so the cpu and gpu optimized perfectly so there are less chances that you can observe lag.
whereas mediatek doesnt have its own gpu so sony buys gpu from another company and cpu and gpu optimization becomes difficult.so u can observe some lag compared to snapdragon.
Finally, my region has the latest 32.2.A.0.224 (Android 6.0.1) yesterday via OTA.
This firmware is the one takes the longest upgrade time which scare me during the installation with the droid on the screen.
Everytime when there is a new firmware available, I will reboot my phone to minimize any unknown impact due to some apps/process running in background. This time, as usual, perform the upgrade (from 6.0.0) after rebooted. Reading the status bar of installation which from left to right normally. However, when the status bar full at right, the installation keep running and my Z3+ didn't restart. After 10 minutes remained no progress, I was wondering that something wrong and worried about crash.
Another 5 minutes then my Z3+ rebooted. Thanks!! Then the upgrade proceeded optimization which very very slow. I can read only 76 apps to be optimized which finally took almost 30 minutes to be completed. Then my Z3+ had reboot prompt 2 more time.
Its looks like Sony this time put a lot enhancements and fixes in the 6.0.1 upgrade although my Z3+ already running 6.0.0.
sanket, 19 Jun 2016Z3plus or z 5 dual which is better option as both has same spec, and z5 has minor improvements... moreZ3 + almost Z5 but less camera experience and no finger print, Z3 + slimmer and beautiful design.
