I had the z3+ which I returned on amazon.. That phone had way too many issues..!! Mainly heating.. The camera looked substandard.. The pictures would come out very dark even in sufficient lighting.. My dad's lenovo took better pictures than that.. Secondly I watch a lot of videos and I need good sound from the speakers.. Which it is pathetic and completely muffled.. You can barely hear a thing.. I would miss so many phone calls cause of that.. The camera app would keeping shutting.. And even after marshmallow update 4k video couldn't be shot for more than 30secs.. Something About that phone just wasn't right..
But I loved Sony and its UI.. I decided to get a Sony again but z5 was outta my budget.. So I bought the z3..
Believe me I couldn't be happier with my purchase.. Its z3+ minus all its issues.. The sound from the speakers is outta the world.. I think it's cos the charging port is at the side and all the bottom area is used to house the speakers.. They are amazing specially with all the settings and optimizations.. The rare camera believe me is a world better than z3+.. Seriously it captures much more light and even in the dark it takes very good pictures..
The battery is also so much better.. Rest all the good stuff like the speed n interface are all the same..
Just one drawback that is a Lil downer for me is the front facing camera.. Thats not that great.. But its fine.. That'll help me break the habit of taking selfies maybe.. Lol..
And I also love the magnetic charging thing.. I use it as a stand while watching Netflix.. The phone keeps charging..
And I bought this just a week back.. So seriously was like a tough decision since its 3 generations old and I was getting z3+ at the same price.. But believe me this is much more value for money..
And best thing I got the colour I loved in Xperia series.. Soft Purple.. Which they don't make now..
So now guys i need your help..
i'm confused .. z3 .. z3+ .. flex 2 .. vibe p1 .. huawei g8.. desire eye

Ian, 04 Apr 2016Ok, I love this phone. Overheating is stopped me from buying it. Can someone help me about it ... moreSince you are not a heavy user you would be pretty fine with this phone.
Android Marshmalllow runs perfectly on the phone, and i haven't really experienced it getting hot, unless you play graphically instense games or record 4K video for a longer time.
So i would definetly go for it if you can get the phone at a good price.
I bought a Z3+ yesterday. However, the packing box of the Z3+ is not sealed with a plastic film(like iPhone) or a label or something else.
Have I bought a new device or not? Do you also get a box without a seal?
