Sony simply follows a criteria - "Will provide 1-2 update for one year,after that RIP your phone from Sony"
That's why we are still struggling for 7.1,
until heating issue never solved,
camera doesn't remains on for more than 1 min bs,
4g not compatible (only for name because phone will hang and battery drain like hell)
Android 8.0 oreo is released though Sony Indian z3+ didn't get 7.1.1..irritating..
Seibei Iguchi, 27 Aug 2017People say there was someone who had a chance to look inside the Z3plus and he found out that ... moremaybe, but the main reason is SD810 architecture is flaw from beginning, over heat happen to LG, Htc and many more, even SD820 not so cold, SD835 is cool but speed not bring much diffferent from SD820.
hopefuly NEC or other Japanese chip makers start make mobile chip, mediatek can't provide to hi end, exynos just has quick charge 2 for 3years in the row (already cause note7 blow twice). too bad texas instrument out of business
sagarmore, 14 Sep 2017No not yet.. Its really frustrating 😤It's been two months and still not received
Anonymous, 01 Sep 2017Why indian model z3 plus didn't received 7.1 nougat..??No not yet.. Its really frustrating 😤
Disappointing that Sony is not including the Z3+ in the list of models for Android Oreo update. The processor is better than other models receiving the update.
kumar358, 01 Sep 2017Update 7.1 available in india? Please tell me anyone Maybe the carrier there didn't allow the update? I am not sure, since I got mine already a few months ago
People say there was someone who had a chance to look inside the Z3plus and he found out that the smarphone was embedded onto plastic base. THe metal frame was just glued on the plastic around the edges and this explains why this phone gets hot very fast. There is simply no ways to carry the heat out, plastic doesn't allow it. They say this feature leaves no chance to improve it via software.
I remember that marshmallow update had improved the heating problem somehow. It didn't disappear, but stop to be a main problem. So, as a Z3+ owner, I am still hoping new update will make a difference.
My Xperia z3 plus is heat in just 15 to 20 sec..battery drain in just hour when fully charged and touch not working properly...not yet received 7.1 update
s, 25 Aug 2017I got my z3+ three days before, everything fine except the heating problem, it gets heated jus... moreThe reason why is because they first used SNAPDRAGON 810 on this smartphone, and most smartphone manufacturers didn't know that the chipset was notorious for overheating at that time, so they forgot to put in more copper pipes.
I got my z3+ three days before, everything fine except the heating problem, it gets heated just in 5 minutes use, its too much when comparing with other phones
sandy, 18 Aug 2017Hello Why the slow motion option is not available to the z3+ model ? as it has the powerfull... moreI guess u are the one who needs the news, since u ask. Only XPERIA XZs and XPERIA XZ PREMIUM have 960fps Slow-Mo. Older Sony smartphones uses Timeshift Video to do 120fps Slow-Mo. If u don't have the app, go download Timeshift Video, it does 120fps, only for the Sony high-end flagships
